Thats a great photos, man..
Long time ago, when I travel, I bring along the whole arsenal.
Then not so long time ago, I bring like 2-3 lenses.
Recently my friend introduce me to 24mm, and thats it, from now on, I only bring that lens + the wide angle adapter, to make it EVEN wider if needed (Im using Sony NEX with 16mm which equal 24mm).
Now, I only need to improve my work to get result like yours.

Michael, very, very beautiful shots...
And I know how hard it is to make *beautiful* pictures in what are beautiful places: everything is nice around, leading to lots of shots. But in the end, most pictures end up just being boring. Yours instead are truly remarkable, and your post processing is very nice too.

One question, being a 24 1.4 addicted myself: how do you manage all the quirkynesses of that lens?
No copy I have tried (4) is really sharp at f1.4 (and at f2 they are just so so), and all of them exhibit enough focus shift on stopping down as to make its use damning... so much so that I was thinking of selling mine...

When it gets a picture, it is amazing... but it can be oh-so-frustrating...

Again: compliments on your shots, and thanks for sharing!

I received the D800 a week after my trip, all taken with the D700

as far as sports, most of the time I use the 400 2.8 with the D800

Lory,
as far as the 24 1.4 goes, I rarely shoot it stopped down, prefer 1.6- 1.8. I tried 3 different copies before the one I currently have and this one is tack sharp even at 1.4.
Focusing I use continuos with single point and it hits it's mark 90% of the time.
If I need to shoot stopped down at 24mm I use the 16-35.
It's the only lens I would not sell as it has become my favorite length for documentary style portraits. Oh, have you tried fine tuning the focus on yours, as mine needed -10 on my D800.
best wishes,
Michael

Eh, you have had more luck than me it seems, Michael
No copy I have tried is sharp "enough" at 1.4 (same goes for the 35 and 85 1.4G... after trying the Sigma 35, I'm reviewing much more critically Nikon's "jewels"...).
Plus, the 24 has a nasty habit of shifting focus, so that if I af-tune it at f1.4, it gets off by 2.8 and vice versa... a really tricky lens!
But it's my preferred focal length too for documentary, so... guess I'll have to live with that

Again, excellent shooting though. Did point this thread to some friends, who were genuinely pleased by your pictures, so thanks again for sharing!
