p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · My first outing with my 'new' 17-35 and geared head with D600.


It was a couple weeks ago, but I finally got my Nikkor 17-35 2.8D back from the shop (it was sick.... half the innards were replaced), and had just gotten my new Manfrotto 410 geared head. So I was itchin' to get out and give both of 'em a test drive with my D600.

I headed to where I knew I would be able to give the lens a real test.... the state capitol. There's an impressive rotunda and dome right in the middle, and I thought that would be the perfect place to put the lens, my D600, and the geared head to a test.

My results:



This is a 5-frame HDR looking straight up at the center of the dome. The only thing I didn't like about the 410 geared head is I needed to reverse the QR plate 180 in order to get the camera to 'look up' more than 30. Oh well, I still like it, especially for macro work!




To give you an idea of the lens' abilities, here's a couple crops (lens is at 17mm):
