    Are you sure it is not the AF-P version of the 70-300 mm he has? If so, that does not af with the D300/S but it does with your D500.

    Thanks for the pic Chris, that shows the offset nicely. I'm guessing that from the stress point of view, it would be better to fit the...

  7. mike_halliwell replied to the thread My Nikon z7 w/ FTZ adapter just arrived! But what am I missing?.

    Bit of an odd question, but I assume there's a custom dedicated chip in the FTZ? Otherwise, just pass-through connections would work...

    How they had the cheek to think 1:5 was anywhere near macro is truly amazing! Optically, I guess it should be OK unless it has fungus....

    - Optically, but not practically equivalent. Back tilt/swing doesn't point the lens axis off-centre like front tilt/swing does. There...

  15. mike_halliwell liked Mary Doo's post in the thread 70-200mm VR 1st generation making strange artefacts.

    If two 70-200mm lenses produce similar results @200mm, it sounds like a camera problem at the max focal range of 200mm?
