Jannik, I like Sigma 35 as well. out of 3 sigma art I have, I like 135 the most but it is my least used lens. I think I use 85mm the most. Other than size, I don't have complain for them. Do you still have Sony System?

Charles, Thanks for your sharing setting about AF, it is very useful. Now, I usually use it(AF auto with face detraction) for dynamic situation. My current D850 setting for AF:I use multi control button for my AF-on as well as moving AF point around. And I use AF-on to active AF-Auto only, this way, I can quickly decide which way I like to use on fly without change AF setting back and forth during shooting.

These were from a year ago a hotel we stayed in Beijing.

Can you show a 100% crop of her face, want to see how "sharp" this lens is on the D850. Thanks! [or any other photo if you think it shows off the sharpness better]

Hi Blake. I did post on a previous page a 100% crop where the eye/lash and brows are razor sharp at f/2. This lens is quite amazing. The micro contrast is lower but this is very typical of Leica lenses and in effect extends your DR.

As much I love manual focus lenses particularly Mandler designed lenses, the AF speed and accuracy now with latest iterations of DSLR's is superb. It is wonderful to have both options

Thanks Michael Very nice captures! The 14-24/2.8 is a great lens. I did try a few other lenses and the 20 Art which was superb but for size/weight the 14-24/2.8 still holds it own. I also suspect with Nikon D810 and D850 there are minor tweaks with the RAW processing that work well with the 14-24.

It is interesting to see how people set up their AF systems to suit their styles. I still feel that Steve Perry's ebook on Nikon AF is great reference and it cleared up many my thoughts and misconceptions. The Nikon AF is superb and there are so many subtleties that are missed. This I feel Nikon should have had manual specifically for all the intricacies of the AF system.

Taken with my Df/Zeiss Distagon 28f2. As the sun was setting behind me, it lit the lighthouse with a really nice warm glow.

Sorry for the large image just above. Anyone know how to reduce the size when posting directly from my MacBook Pro iPhoto gallery?

Thanks in advance!
Best Wishes,
Don

Hi Don. Love the shot! Usually downsize to a maximum width and height of 1550 px and 1150px with 750kB max file size. This will about the max for normal monitor screen viewing. Lr CC is great for downsizing batches of photos. Just import and then export to the HD in a separate file detailing the specs.

Hi Charles,

Thank you for the both the compliment on my image as well as the advice for downsizing. Unfortunately, I do not use lightroom. I simply use the simplistic iPhoto that is onboard my Macbook Pro laptop. Any other suggestions for trying to downsize the image

Many thanks,
Don

Signs: In Japan they create signs to inform/warn usually with great detail. some are amusingly appropriate and concise to our work.
