Rub it in! Currently 23 degrees with 4-8 inches predicted tomorrow.

Nice takes with the "new" lens.

What's that bright thing in the picture Reagan?? Haven't seen that sun here in recent times

Well at least its only raining here tomorrow. Some of you folks up further north are looking at quite a bit of snow. Scott, hope its less than predicted.

I wouldn't stress too much about the oil issue either. I have the D7000 (first run) and the oil issue was FAR worse than the images I have seen with the D600. It took a trip into Nikon for a cleaning (and a repair, the shop I took my camera into to clean the sensor put a scratch on the sensor) and I have shot 4k images since, all weather conditions, and not a single drop of oil. The repair stated that the extractor arm needed to be cleaned...


exactly - I had some pretty annoying spots on my D7000 sensor after 2400 exposures. I never really cleaned it, though - rubber stamp tool was just easier to do than to break down and order the wet cleaning kit. I now will do that, since I plan to keep the D600 much longer. I don't really care if it leaks oil like an old Italian sports car - the images are so much better than what I got from the DX body that I'm willing to put up with that for the price I paid for the D00 kit + all the other goodies Adorama threw in over the holidays. I just got another $80 coupon from them and bought me a nice ND100 filter with that, which will soon get tested with some MF glass.

Well done Peter. I've no doubt you'll love the D600, if I'm to judge by what others are doing with the camera. I've been tempted myself, but then took a step back. My D700 still does the job for me.

Slap on those MF lenses and share some photos with us... of course, the latest weather forecast has a major storm beginning in Wisconsin and heading east. It might be better to stay indoors.

Looking good Reagan! You may finally have found a camera worth keeping... And that lens sparkles as well. Wide shots of the beach are definitely in order with that lens. Happy shooting. It is still below fifty degrees at the moment in S.F. We'll never compete with Florida on temperature, but when you're changing shirts after a day of intense humidity you can think of us with temperatures in the low eighties and virtually no humidity...

Hope your surgery went well, Matt.

Congratulations, Alan!



I've not had my surgery yet. Doing Physical therapy and going to see another specialist on March 4. But I am finally getting some relief and some pain free moments.

Thanks everyone.

slushy messy wet icy "wintry mix" as they call it - just gray and ugly out there and not even a lot of snow to make that dramatic. I didn't even ride my bicycle today, that's how nasty this is.

I'm waiting for my Chinese Yongnuo remote flash triggers to play with the camera indoors.

got an MF lens question:

20mm f3.5 vs. 20mm f2.8: I read on the Bjørn Rørslett site that he feels my f3.5 version is not very good at infinity. Anyone else can confirm that? I need a good ultra-wide, yet packable lens for landscapes. If there's a distinct difference, I would sell the f3.5 and find me a 2.8.

About 80 degrees right now and 82 tomorrow going to fertilize the yard this afternoon
The humidity doesn't bother me I worked outside for 37 years
Thanks for the comments

Wonderful set Reagan and I agree with Kevin, the first shot is a stunner. I do believe you've found a winning combination with the D600 and the 25-50 f/4 AI-s. Sweet work.
