    I just bought the D5600 used and have a few questions

    That camera was sold as a kit with that lens... That camera was basically designed for that series of lenses... If it's not "focusing" you either have an incorrect setting and/or the lens/body is defective... Do the reset.. and start from scratch...

    The wonder of the tone curve

    For reference, the same NEF file (from my D810) is 36M and converted to DNG is 78M Just for reference, you can convert a NEF directly within Lightroom from the Library menu with many more options than Adobe's DNG converter program... It converts the above 36M NEF file to a 39M DNG...
