| p.1 #7 · Older Lenses and D800E |
I had occasion to shoot for a week with a friend's D800 and since I practically shoot ONLY with MF Nikkor glass, that is what I did when I had that camera. I mounted eight different lenses and none of them disappointed me or embarrassed the D800... 28 f/2 AI-s, 50 f/1.2 AI-s, 55 f/1.2 S-C AI'd, 85 f/1.4 AI-s, 135 f/2 AI-s, 180 f/2.8 AI-s, 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF and 400 f/5.6 AI-s ED-IF. I won't be rushing out to buy one for myself, in part because the D700 is such a wonderful camera that handles these old Nikkor lenses so well. But should I reach a time when I feel a need to upgrade I'd have no reluctance to use my existing kit of MF Nikkors with the D800. And there are quite a number of folks posting on the Manual Focus Nikon Glass thread who are using a variety of these lenses and producing some outstanding work.
