I'm not sure the lighting is any better on Jon's shot, it has just been processed to have a lot more "pop" to the first image. The first image looks really flat color wise, plus it doesn't look...

Based on what I read, the 90D would be a huge upgrade, but even the 70/80D would be a pretty big jump over what you have if you can find a nice used one.

I admit I don't know much about the 40D, but on the Nikon side the D90 was a huge improvement over the D80, just like the D3100 over the D3000. There have been improvements since then, but they get...

I guess the main question remains, what are you going to do with the images? If you are going to post here, make decent 8X10's and rarely venture out at night, there is probably little reason to...

What camera as well? Bumping the ISO up to compensate for a slower lens is not a big deal with many of the newer cameras. My D7500 is much better than my D90 at high ISO's, although the D90 is still...

I have 3 monitors and they all look slightly different. It's probably just the way the phone and computer process the image. You really have to calibrate them I guess.

The greens are a little strange and you need to crop out the restof the sign on the lower right. For some reason, WSOR number boards give me a hard time. The often look slightly soft, even though...

Is it just me or does the accepted image look soft? The ballast on the lower left looks in focus, that near the engine does not.

Gotcha. A FX 50mm f1.8 is under $100 used. I have a couple and they are great. I use the same lens on my DX with an extension tube for my slide work. I've seen the actual Nikon slide adapter. I want...

Mike, I would not hesitate to get the Plustek 8200 if the Nikon is giving you issues. As Doug said, Richard Jahn gets some really good results with his.

Doug, you don't have a plain 50mm for your film camera? Just for kicks, I looked up some used equip. You can get a Nikon D7000 and a AF 50mm lens for $300-350. The good thing is D7000 is actually a...

Slow......
