AF-S DX NIKKOR
18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II
If I bought this camera today used with a 70-300mm kit lens that is also used how much should I pay for both of these products
Hello There!! I have 2 questions relating to depth of focus with the DX format....First off, what is the recommended CoC size in microns for the D40 ?
Thanks Everyone !!!
The CoC for FX format is .033 mm.
The focal length for your calculation should take into consideration the Crop Factor.
If you are using an online DoF calculator, some these calculators automatically take the sensors crop factor into consideration.
You are correct in that you need to use 60mm in your calculation of a 40mm lens.
Hope this helps,
The black piece on the back of my lense that connects to the actual camera itself has two of three tracks broken that locks the lense to the camera
