    Oh I saw that strap. The 2 ends are super long, how do you deal with that?

    Yeah, the ends are super l...o..n..g! I threaded it to the camera first to adjust for the optimal length to dangle from my neck and cut off the excess length which I think about 28 cm from each side. Cut diagonally so the end is pointed. To prevent the ends from fraying, run it over the flame of a cigarette lighter quickly so the rubber melts a bit. If the melted rubber is a bit thick, use a finger-nail file or sand paper to smoothen it.

    If you take reasonable care of the camera, will anything go wrong or are repairs required within 5 years.

    I believe the camera would still be okay.... after 1 year or 2, it would depends on more on your luck

    Hi Gents!
    i just got my D5100, can you advise the quick one?

    can this cam use a 50mm f1.8 D?
    I read that this camera mount has no in-built focus, hence can only use a F1.8G

    Is that true?

    Thank-si!
    But how do you manual focus on 50mm 1.8D?
    Because if i can't then there is no point buying..
    Anyone using 50mm F1.8 D on their D5100?

    I am using AFS 500mm F4 II, it is a prime lens. I coupled it with a 1.4x Teleconvertor in order to get the 700mm reach. Still trying to get used to the camera body on this heavy lens, it is heavily off balance when i mount it on my tripod. The photos are not so good as the lighting was very harsh on the day.

    Found that there is a sweet spot for the D5100..... I find that the images taken at ISO1600 is better than images taken at ISO800.... weird huh....
