Done! Finished! Over! "NMFAS" Totally cured! Never to stray again! The latest arrival was stalked and lusted for with unrelenting pursuit! The search has ended. Pic taken with the 28 2.8 AI-S.

Congrats Ron, she's a beauty, now let's see some images with it!

Oh, and one more thing, there is NO cure.

Ron I can only assume it is a 200-400 f4 ais?

Your assumption is spot on Ray!
Leighton unless someone points me in the direction of a 1200-1700mm the buying is over with.

Hi all,

I wrote my first post ever, about my lens selection for a trip to Cuba, and about the D600 a couple of days ago.

My account was subsequently blocked - the post is at page 2467 - don't know why. I wrote to Fred and asked, but no reply. Feels a little sad as I have been reading more or less every post on this thread since Curtis started it and it feels like my second home...

These are the lenses I started writing about:






Anyway, I just signed in under another name because I wanted to thank you all for the welcome.
However, I don't really feel like staying so I post this, and a few pictures, and then I'm off.
Don't weep for me.

To Ben:

Hi Gabriel

welcome.

stimulating first post .

I have a D800E - and I'm one of those people who like to shoot raw and like to set ISO manually - was interested to hear that I've missed the point of this camera................

ben


sounds like horrible statement I made there... my point was that if you set your ISO manually, shoot raw and 'develop' your pictures in your computer, you are basically doing what the D600 and D800 seems to be capable of doing all by themselves. And as I am trying to show, with flying colours, sometimes perhaps even better than we can do ourselves!

Today, I have added new posts to the blog I set up trying to cover the D600, at http://nikonsystem.blogspot.com/
For those of you who have not seen it, I basically happened to stumble on a few aspects of the D600 and D800 jpeg behaviour which were not covered anywhere else on the Internet so I decided to share that with as many as possible.

Another example today - from the Camera Obscura in Havana, jpeg SOOC, Nikkor 35mm f/1,4 Ai-S shot at 2,0:






And the same jpeg, but with shadows lifted:






I will try to post another few pictures separately and then I'm off
Best, Gabriel

Gabriel I really enjoyed seeing your photos from Cuba. It's not often we get a first hand look into everyday life in the country. Thank you for posting, however this thread asks that you limit your photos to four. This is for those who do not have high speed connections.

Curtis told me he was really busy with family and the organization he volunteers with. And Monty's just taking a little break.

I was a little surprised at the size and weight. I thought it was smaller. It has besutiful glass. I hope to get out to shoot with Nikki Sunday and Monday.

Here's a few from this morning. We had a little snow yesterday so it made everything pretty this morning. All shots taken with the 28-50mm f3.5.



sensational set Leighton. That pink sky in #2 and 4 is so evocative. But my favourite is Waylon at his breakfast (you added the vignetting as usual yes?)

Sir, why I feel that you are not telling us the truth?

They are following a very severe detoxification cure of MF Nikkors. Doctors are not sure if this cure will succeed but they are trying harder...

Mr.Z: Do you know that I do not want to but this lens? Why are you tempting me?

I was also pleasantly surprised. Is it much small than the 1.4?
