comment How to transition from crop-frame to full-frame
Oh, yes, wrote it backwards.

comment How to get wide angle shots; upgrade to FF or get a wide lens?
That depends how far back you go. I still have a Minolta 17-35mm which seemed extremely wide but several 14mm were also produced before digital cameras came about. The 11-24mm is costly but it is just to show the limit, you can get a Sigma 12-24mm FF or Tamron 15-30mm to get an extreme-wide-angle on a full-frame for less.

comment Can I use adapters to mount Samyang lenses to my Nikon body?
We cannot answer then. Adapters from some mounts to other mounts are not all physically possible.

comment Can I work with ONLY a single fixed focal length lens?
The is a difference between quality photo and good photo. One can take a good photo with a phone but not a quality one. Also note that I have used a dozen or so kit lenses from each of Sony, Canon, Pentax, Panasonic and Olympus, plus easily over 40 ones from Nikon. They invariably show very poor optical quality and it is getting worse, not because the lenses are changing but because sensors are exceeding greatly these lenses ability to resolve details. While some kit lenses were passable on a 12 MP camera, I have not seen a single one perform reasonably on 24 MP.

Samyang is a brand, not a mount. Which mount do your lenses have? It will say on the box and in the specifications manual.

comment Buying a Nikon DSLR Camera body only, is a 35mm and 55-200mm lens enough for most cases?
Oddly, while you ask if any lens will serve for macro, you have not mentioned any one macro lens. If you are to do macros, you will need at least a suitable lens unless you are willing to use some other device such as reversal ring or extension tubes.

The first part is nonsense. A low price doesn't make something acceptable despite poor image quality. If it is soft and blurry in corners, it simply is. One must judge the value of paying more to avoid such issues.

Not really. It has been designed to give a complete camera for the lowest cost possible. Although in the old days, you used to get a starter memory card too but now you have to get one on your own.

I used to worked in a camera store and no one will rent you a kit lens. There is no point, a quality lens goes for $25-50 /day, so not much less than buying a kit-lens!

comment How do I set up my camera to get a high enough resolution for printing at 300dpi?
@MichaelClark - Its much more than that, usually 36 or 49, at least. That's because dots are only only tone of one color, so you need a whole pattern to print any color among the printer's gamut.

Sounds like questions for a research paper :)

comment tokina at-x pro 100mm f/2.8 macro for Nikon - aperture automatically changes while in manual mode
Strange. I've never seen that happen on any macro lens but I have not used any third-party ones either (only Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony), so I'm very curious what is going on.

comment How far do I need to extend bellows to achieve particular minimum focal length
Lenses often quote magnification because it is easier to compare. It is a function of angle-of-view and minimum focus-distance which are both determined a lenses construction.

comment How far do I need to extend bellows to achieve particular minimum focal length
Indeed, there is no relation. If you look at the set of 200mm available for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, you will see the minimum focus-distance varies between 50cm and 190cm.

comment How far do I need to extend bellows to achieve particular minimum focal length
It's hard to answer this because you are completely confused. A 200mm lens has to do with its focal-length and determines the angle-of-view when mounted on a certain sensor-size. This has nothing to do with focus-distance.

comment How can cameras have the same number of megapixels even when the sensor size differs?
Please search this site, I am quite sure this has been answered before.

comment What can tall photographers do about tripod height?
@Caleb - I phrased it the other way around, that you will be uncomfortable at some point, no matter your height but, yes, at some of the time, you will be comfortable too. It is just less likely to happen since there is a small range of height where someone will find himself perfectly comfortable but much more possibilities for composition.

comment Term for increasing detail with multiple exposures?
@lionel - Yes, Super-Resolution is separate. Exposure Fusion is basically stacking with an algorithm to select pixels from each image and blend them, so you won't get more resolution from either term.

comment Term for increasing detail with multiple exposures?
@lionel - Somehow misread the question, sorry. Hopefully now it fits better. Thank you for letting me know.

comment How is this changing vertical perspective effect achieved?
Excellent analysis!
