comment Home printing economically viable
Yeah, that's why said it may not be simple to answer. I was hoping there was a general rule of thumb kind of thing.

comment Why aren't photos from my Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 as sharp as I expect?

I have both the 35mm and 50mm f/1.8. I shoot them wide open and get great results. But those are both fantastic lenses. I bought the Tokina because there wasn't a lot of fast, ultrawide DX options. In retrospect I should have gotten something else I think. I got it mainly for the f/2.8, but I think investing the money in a good flash would have been better.

comment Sigma 150-500 for wildlife?
I thought about the 80-400, but at the end of the day it is about $400 more expensive (new, though a quick look at Amazon shows some used for as cheap as $800), less long end range, and only slightly faster. If 300mm is a long enough range that leaves me open to several cheaper options, some under $500, though I kind of think I'd like to have the 500mm, even if I rarely use it, just in case?

comment Sigma 150-500 for wildlife?
Yeah but some reviews have told me that the 150-500 is a little bit sharper, and I don't think I would need the extra range/weight/price of the 50-500.

comment Why would a serious photographer buy a lens slower than f/2.8?
How much image quality are you sacrificing for that reduction in weight and cost?

comment The future of AutoFocus
Yeah but the D600 is FX, that's a whole other bag of worms.

comment Why is my D5000 not saving pictures?
Nothing. I mean, it seems to be taking the picture fine. Focus, shutter, etc etc. It just doesn't write the image to the SD card.

comment Why is my D5000 not saving pictures?
Tried that, tried 3 different memory cards. I didn't think it was the lens, but it was working fine until I put this one one. Then again I work in IT so I know enough about technology to know that it's never the obvious culprit.

comment How important is a fast aperture in a wide angle lens?
It is DX. Nikon D5000 to be specific.

comment DX vs FX the final comparison
That sounds very precise and accurate, though for most of us still thinking in terms of 'mm' could you translate?

comment What low-cost ultra-wide angle DX lens will autofocus on my Nikon D5000?
Whatabout this lense? I would be worried about the relatively low maximum aperture, but the wide angel can't be beat and it's relatively inexpensive on Amazon. link Sigma 8-16

comment How important is auto-focus with a 50mm lens?
Yes it is f/1.8. There is an f/1.4 but it is significantly more expensive.
