| p.5 #17 · Official: Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G AF-S VR released! |
These were shot today. Some background:
a. cloudy, dark, sometimes showers, generally really poor flat light.
b. all shot at ISO 1600 due to the poor light. All were shot off-hand with VR on.
c. all are shot 300-400mm, I have not fine tuned AF, just put it on the D3s and shot.
d. nothing special for camera settings, standard and some on the fly exposure comp.
e. the photos were all pulled into lightroom, cropped, and no other changes.
f. exported from lightroom with only sharpening for screen used.
My point is not to show really nice pics, but to give an idea what you can expect right from the camera. Of course I'd rather have nice light to test it in, but I'm thinking this is ok, I figure they will only get better with nicer light.
The keeper rate and general IQ doesn't come close to the 500VR, but I'm thinking it's a keeper considering the intended purpose and cost.
I shot this a little dark, but still shows good detail
This is strictly to show how neutral colors expose with this body/lens, looks nice to me
I didn't really like how the squirrel pics came out, most color shifted to the green side badly with these being the best
I thought this came out ok, all considered
