Oh these do look sweet buddy
#2 Teal is to die for Kirk and that is an amazing image of the Buffy at that steep a crop
Perfect exposure of the Scoter
Peep detail is amazing!!!!!!!!!

Grats my friend, you scored a fantastic copy of that body

Tom


Hey Tom, many thanks for the gracious words buddy. Very pleased with the initial impression of this body... coming from the frustration of way too many OOF images due to the slow and unreliable focus acquisition and tracking of my D300 setup. Can't wait to get some FF opportunities in good light with this baby.

Guess where you fit in The IQ is scary good Kirk and just what you have earned over the years, you are certainly 100% worthy of this new body my friend!

It is apparent that this body pulls in the detail as well as

Wow Karl, you are way too kind but I sure appreciate the wonderful compliment my friend, it means a lot. I continue to learn and grow everyday from the wealth of talent on this forum, very grateful for your willingness to help others become better.

As already stated, I'm very excited in seeing the potential of this body... I can't wait to get some FF opportunities in good light.

Please keep pushing me, you see things that most don't look for... don't be shy my friend, I really want your critical feedback.

Thanks again,
Kirk

Congrats Kirk on your new camera and wishing you wonderful years of photography with it.
I have always admired your ability to get such fantastic pics with the 300 and tc and no doubt you will continue with even better ones with the new camera.
This is a great set and I particularly like the colors on the first two.

I love the camera that you have. More importantly, I think you have made use of the light really perfectly.

Your Cinnamom Teal pics are sweet!

Thanks John. The CT flyby was right after I got to this spot, when my new setup acquired and tracked it perfectly I was elated to say the least.

Most appreciated Rob, permagrin has definitely set in.

Fantastic set Kirk !! Love them all. Congratulations on the new camera !
I sold my D300 about a year after getting the D7000. Now I am waiting for the D7000 upgrade or the D400. Really want better A/F and low light capability.

Seeing yours and Wills shots with the D800 , well makes me want to get one. Just concerned it is more camera than I am ready for .

Birdie


Hi Birdie, Thank you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed the first set with my new toy.

I want to assure you that the D800 is not more camera than you are ready for, the D300 and D7000 have prepared you well. If you can shoot those well, and you definitely do, then the transition to the D800 will be very easy. I promise. The difference in focus acquisition and tracking even with the 1.4 TC between the D300 & D800 is dramatic. With the D300 it was 50/50 in my experience which quite frustrating at times, during my first outing with the D800 I only experienced a delayed/missed acquisition 2 or 3 times all day.

I really didn't intend on getting a D800 until Adorama offered the factory refurbs for $2,299... I just couldn't pass on the value. I think you would do really well with this body if it fits your budget, and I know your 500 would love the D800. The only drawback is 4 FPS in FX and that might be a deal breaker.

PM me with any other questions.

What a wonderful compliment Martin, thank you so much my friend.
After just one outing I'm so excited about what this camera is capable of, it's going to be so much fun.

Socrate


Your gracious words are much appreciated Socrate, so glad you enjoyed my first set with the D800. Initial impression is that it's a very capable tool that I hope to use to its fullest extent. I still can't believe these are all crops from the already DX crop mode. I can't wait to get some FF opportunities in really good light.
