Laura, I'm also pretty content with the D700 for now, and agree you made a good choice. I loved the feel of the D800E in my hand as an eventual upgrade to the D700, but I'm in no rush. Between Margot, my impending graduation, and our potential move across the ocean, camera gear has taken a back seat.

Don't get me wrong, I like my D600 much more than my (sold) D700. I'd do it again.
The extra resolution is fab and more is always better

D600 might be my next one I am happy with my D700 but it looks like the D600 might extend my acceptable ISO range a bit more since I like shooting in the dark.

28mm f2.8

Chuong, this wide open? Amazing! I love it! Can someone explain to me why I feel a need to get a second 28mm f2.8 ais?

Thanks, Bert, James, Ian, Scott, Alan, and Philip for the coments.

and the only reason I'm saying D800 is because I could NEVER afford a D4! But I'f much rather have a D4. Better low light, faster and oh yes, I LOVE big!

I agree, you do have your hands rather full at the moment. I do like that I can go between the D700 and D300s and not have to retrain my muscle memory. I rented a D800 for a week but don't have a burning desire to upgrade to one.

Here ya go Reagan, start with this and add this and then hang on to all those MF lenses. Looks like a steal for sure! Might have to find a way to get one down to Brazil

Chuong, very well done. That one is a shot to remember.

Here is a huge pano from the latest Nikki post I am working on. I though it would be a good treat.
SpaceX Rocket Development Facility in McGregor, TX:


If you look on the far left, you will see a water tower and tall cylindrical white object on stilts. That white cylinder is Grasshopper, a 10-story VTOL rocket that currently is capable of taking off and landing itself upright... I don't remember it's maximum altitude or flight time right now, but we hear tests of it nearly every day, sometimes many times a day.

IIRC, the large white/gray metal building is where the company assemble Falcon 9 rockets for testing.

The large tripod looking structure next to the water tower in the middle is a vertical test structure for fully configured Falcon 9 rockets. I've been on the top of the concrete part. It's over 100 feet tall. I think the top of the structure is roughly 260 feet tall and has quite a view of the surrounding area. I don't know what the grid like structure next to that is. The various other outbuildings and mounds of dirt are used for fuel storage, testing of single engines on the ground etc.

When a full launch test is simulated, everything here in town shakes and it is very, very, very loud. If the weather conditions are correct, the rockets will make large streams of clouds along the ground that are miles long. The first large test caused several residents to think it was the apolcalypse. The company now posts signs along highways to notify the town of very large tests!
