Sir,im a little bit confused on whats the best lens,that i have to buy?is it the nkkon 55-200mm,18-2000mm..my camera is D5000..im just a beginner in photography,and im more on point and shoot type..but i want to improve more,so im planning to buy a lens that i would not change lenses at a given situation.

Answers :

The best lens depends on what you want to do with it. The 18-200mm gives you a wide focal length range in a single lens. If you don't need the full range, there are other options, such as the 55-200mm, 18-105mm, and 18-135mm. There are also shorter lenses, such as the 10-24mm, and longer lenses, such as the 70-300mm.\012\012\012

One of the major advantages of an SLR over a point&shoot is that you CAN change lenses when you want to.

Hi, you can calculate optical zoom by lens specs\012ex: 18-200mm lens is 3Xzoom -- you get 3 by finding out how many times the second number can be divided by the first so200mm /18mm=11X the object will be 11X larger than with the 18mm lens at 2 ...

My Canon G9 had gotten wet and it was dried and returned in working order by a Canon dealer. He said that the camera might develop spots on the lens and a few months later I noticed a hazy area in the middle of each picture. It appears to be getting worse. Is the lens replaceable on the G9 or should I consider buying a new G9. I love this specific point and shoot. Thanks in advance MH

I am shooting with a 10mm - 22mm lens - however that should not matter. Frequently my camera cannot find a focal point and therefore i cannot active the shutter release. I am forced to switch to either Manual focus or A (Automatic. I generally have the camera set to either AV or P for standard shooting. I have an EOS Reblel (6.4 pxls) that i've used with the same (10 -22) lens and i have never run into this focusing issue. Also, I am framing pretty standard subjects like doorways etc....N

My Canon digital rebel will not autofocus correctly. My camera has 7 points autofocus, but it will only autofocus on the far right point. All other points are not used. I have had the camera for 14 months and the problem just began. If I want to focus on anything in the left to center of the field of vision, I cannot do it. However, the lens focuses manually very well. Why won't my camera focus on other points than the far right one?

I had this problem awhile ago - you must have accidently adjusted the focal area - it is sooooo easy to do without realising it. Here is what I was told:**************************Most likely, you have changed the AF point, which onl ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

62 size I am assuming that the 62 size will be perfect and it will leave the lens as close to the filter as possible? Is this what I should be shooting for? What if I want to add a macro or a wide-angle lens? Would I need any more adapters to attach another lens, or does it dpend on the lens?

If you want to add other lenses, either macro, wide angle, telephoto or just filters, they go directly on the adapter. That's why the thread size (62mm) is important because that's the best fit for that adapter. If you get other sizes you can still u ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera

I just received my Nikon D3100 in the mail today, and I was so excited. When I opened the lens cap on the camera body to put the lens on a small, clear-ish rectangle fell out. It was surrounded by a thin cooper colored frame that is easily removable. It looked like a little magnifying glass so I am kind of nervous. It seems to shoot pictures fine, but some times it tells me the shot is to dark even though I am in full light. It also took black pictures the first few times and if I point it di

Am in Italy and my Lumix DMC ZS6 camera was dropped on a stone floor. The LCD is was cracked but the lens tracted and retracted and it took pictures. Two weeks later however, whenI wanted to use the camera, it did not turn on and the lens did not open. Is this simply a matter of replacing the LCD or could it be a bigger problem with the electronics. Would it be better just to buy another camera? Thanks!
