    According to the manual page 156 the shutter can be fired with a ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control. They run about 18 dollars at Adorama or B&H.

    Yes, the D90 infrared remote should work on the D7200 (see https://www.nikonimgsupport.com/ni/N...d=1&lang=en_US), or you can buy a cheap generic remote for less than $9.00

    I purchased two D90's new. Neither came with a remote. In fact, none of my bodies ever came with one. So don't worry about not including it if you sell your D90. Yes, it should work fine providing the battery inside the remote still works.

    I am interested in this, but have read mixed reviews to do it or not. My main lense is 18-140, I don't have any set things I shoot, just random stuff, mostly off a tripod, would I benefit from fine tuning?

    Absolutely, no matter if you are shooting people or animals you will want to focus on the eyes. If you have fine tuned the lens the eye will be sharp instead of the area just in front or behind the eye.

    It depends. The way Nikon has implemented the focus tuning is not perfect. I have tried the feature in the past but my results were never good. The problem is, lenses typically require different focus tuning parameters depending on the focusing distance, but we can only enter one value. If you have a 50mm f/1.4 prime lens, that needs +5 at 1 meter, -7 at 5 meters and +3 at 30 meters and beyond, which number will you enter?

    And the thing only gets worse if you have a zoom lens. You would need 3-5 different zoom settings and 3-5 focusing distances for each zoom setting, yielding 25 fine tune values. Which one will you pick?

    I have 5 cameras that allow focus tuning (D300, D3S, D3X, D4S and D5) but I have not done it. Maybe I am lucky or just blind, but none of my lenses require FT. On the other hand I only have Nikkor lenses which all perform beyond my expectations *knock on wood*.

    One thing to remember, the FT should be done in bright daylight, if you shoot in daylight. Tungsten or fluorescent lighting cause focusing error (not large, but perceptible). Or vice versa, if you only shoot in tungsten, then tune in tungsten.

    The fine tuning only effects where the focus is. If you use enough depth of field you may see no change. But if you have a shallow depth of field you will see improvement if your lens is front or back focusing. I think the exercise of doing it helps understand the focus system. Even if you shoot a zoom you may be able to find out what your most used distance is for that lens, some software lets you sort by images focal length and or lens. Fine tuning helped on my 70-300.

    Indoor low light is always a problem unless you don't mind sesor noise from high ISO. You are on the right track. Keep shooting.
