You need to include what you prefer to shoot. If it is landscape, you do not need that large of a lens. If it is wildlife, then you need the largest lens you can afford. In my opinion, you are better off concentrating on FX lenses, that way if you ever decide to upgrade your camera body to a full frame body, you will not need to reinvest in lenses. As for brand, I find matching lens brands with camera brands to be the best match for quality, that said, the Sigma Sport is a very fine lens with great reviews.

This summer I'm going on a 2-week tour of Ireland and Scotland. Space and weight are at a premium and I'm reluctant to take my D5600 and three lenses. Any suggestions on what small bridge camera I could rent and from whom ? Thanks for the help - I'm an experienced beginner !
Cell Phone. It is always with you, and the newer ones take great photos, with some having advanced settings such as zoom and aperture.

If you are into photography as a business, cost is a consideration, as you need to be profitable when possible. But, if you are into photography as a hobby, it is like any other hobby, upgrading is part of the enjoyment of the hobby. That would be my opinion.
It is an interesting method of post processing, but, at first glance, they appear to have a lot of noise, and they seem to be out of focus. Upon a deeper look, I see that it is not noise, and the photo will never be sharp, as that seems to be part of the effect. I have seen others that were much sharper. I would say it is a good start, but needs some work to be effective.

I do not know on the D3300, but on my Nikons, there is a setting that will not allow a shutter release if focus is not acquired. I do not remember where that setting is, but you may want to google it and set it where you do not need to have focus acquired for the shutter to release.
Hello, I put these pictures out here about 3 hours ago and they seem to have totally disappeared, so I will try it again. The first picture was taken last September with a canon t3i. The second was taken today with a new canon t7i.
I like the first one best, makes us wonder why we upgrade our cameras as much as we do. The second one is nice, I am just not a fan of partial trees, I would have liked it better if the full tree had been photographed.
Hello gang... I am a long-time UH stalker that finally would like a group response. We were burned out in the northern California Camp fire, and I am slowly rebuilding my gear, hence the excuse for 'replacing' my camera :>). For years I used a UV filter to protect my lenses from mechanical damage until a pro whom I respect said 'oh no.. that degrades your images'. But now with two shiny new lenses, how much really do I need to worry about that ? Thanks for your responses in advance !!
Trial and error. Buy an inexpensive UV filter for one of your lenses, set your camera up on a tripod, take a few pics with and without the filter, compare image quality. As long as you are not dragging your camera and equipment through the brush, I see no need for the filter, but that is up to each individual.
Thanks to everyone for the invaluable information and wonderful photos. I often want to complement or comment on photos, but rarely do because this results in my mail box becoming clogged with others’ nice comments. So, is there a way to comment on a photo without being deluged with other ones?

While I shoot in the raw format, and enjoy post processing my photos, I can see why some people do not want the burden. What you shoot, and how you shoot, is the choice of the photographer, and anyone that criticizes someone for their choice in subject or format is a fool. Just my opinion. Stay with what makes you happy with your photos and try to not let some idiot upset you.

For those of you who carry two cameras, are both the same model or do you have two different models and why for either answer?
I carry a full frame and a cropped frame. The full frame is for landscape, and the cropped frame is for wildlife. It has worked out well for me, as I do not need to change lenses when going from landscape to wildlife, it is tough to get a quick shot of a bird or other wildlife when you need to change the lens in order to get the reach needed for a good shot.
