p.1 #1 · UPDATE! - 28 1.8G birthday party


Ok, so the link doesn't appear to be working... sorry about that

Here are a couple of photos:

















































if you want to see more you can go to: www.facebook.com/AlessandroDiSciascio

then go to my photos and look at "Henry's Birthday Party"

I should say I use the 28 1.8 as a "virtual zoom" by varying the crop factor on my D800 ... so some of those may have been taken around 35mm effective or 42mm effective. I LOVE this lens!

Just thought someone might like to see how consistent and awesome this lens can be for pj coverage. Not claiming that this is top notch work or anything but the lens performed admirably. Focusing on the D800 was fast enough to track children... what else do you need to know?

Really love the 28mm focal length, it's easily a one lens setup for events like this

Even more so when you set one of the buttons to let you change the crop format... and essentially have an incredibe 28 prime, 35 prime and 40mm prime all in one.

LOVE.

Love the colors and contrast of these photos. The 28 f1.8 looks like a match made in heaven with the d800.

Great stuff. I didn't think I'd care much about a 28 when it was announced (already having the 24/1.4) but I really like what I've seen in my short time with mine and from excellent photos like in the OP.

Just don't tell the guys in the 28MM Focus shift thread that the lens is as good as it is.

Great stuff Alessandro! This is the first AF lens I've been lusting after in a while. Was there much PP here?

Awesome coverage! I picked up a D800 a couple days ago and I'm contemplating selling the D4 now. God I love this camera!

@Bruce - I feel exactly the same way. These are sharpened of course but the images pop on their own in a wonderful way with minimal PP

@Palmbuy - I felt exactly the same way... 28? What's 28? But I never could make myself fall in love with the 24... and I LOVED 35 (especially coming from Canon's 35L) ... though at times it was a tad tighter than I wanted it...and too close to the 50. This 28 is just RIDICULOUSLY awesome... Doesn't hurt that it focuses very close allowing near-macro environmental shots of obejcts (awesome for detail shots @ my weddings)

@Creative Edge - Thanks

@Matt - Every shot I took at the party was either nailed or I had shot it from the hip and didn't get the af point where I needed it ha ha ha

@philipj - the shots I posted here have little more than sharpening WB and minor brightness or exposure tweaks. A couple in the full gallery also have some creative dodging and burning... but really like 3 images...

@LivLif - yeah I'm wondering if I should keep the D3s I recently bought... I probably will for the comfort provided by the grip but boy do I feel stupid. The D800 (with the excpetion of pathetic LiveView implementation - though it IS usable... so ...) is incredible

Great bokeh & colors! This may be the replacement I've been looking for for my 35/2D (@ 1.2 crop).

Great pics, love the look. I've had the lens a couple weeks but am going to return it since the results aren't as 'dramatic' on my D7000 1.5x crop body. From the samples I've seen, this lens reproduces much better for full-frame users. I'll get it again if I upgrade to a FF body anytime soon.

Great shots and its exactly how I intended to use the lens...

Just ordered my second copy - the first wasn't correctable even with a -20 AF Tune on a D800E

I own a 16-28, 24-70 and now this 28 prime. The 16-28 is my interiors and vistas lens, the 24-70 is a staple for events and with my LEE filters, the 28 is now the "walk-around" and low light lens that should prove worthy for street as well is it focuses OK this time around...

I could theoretically get away with just the 28G but I like choices... =)

The images look great -- clearly a good fit for you.

They do look overly sharpened and compressed to me, which can probably be blamed on Facebook, which wreaks havoc on any photograph that has the misfortune to be placed there. I'm sure the originals are great.
