Reagan, great debut with the new 25-50/4. I liked the most this one.

MDoc9523, Do you adjust ISO to its lowest, say 50? Also, do you up the shutter to as near max when shooting in to bright a place? Was this tripod, or handheld? Thank you!

Ron, liked the way you inserted the "bambi" in its environment - he/she? has good camouflage

Resumed checking out the 35mm f2 OC. Both images wide open. The lens seems plenty sharp centrally at f2. Checking out background rendition too. Haven't had the chance to look at smaller apertures yet.







Samy, spetacular portrait + OOF background!

Here's some shots from today. It was such a beautiful day I had to go out exploring. I went to Lakeland to the Holis Gardens and I am never disappointed there. It is such a wonderful garden!
I used four lenses today including my recently repaired 105 2.5

Great set Ray, but for me this one stands out: what crisp/sharp and colourful scenario!

a handheld whilst driving, at low speeds, Nikon D700 + Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 AIS photo, of alocal, and very lovely Tudor style home. I used LR4 to adjust color to my liking, keep in mind, my monitor is uncalibrated, i am color blind, and i have very low processing skills! I like the colored one better, because it shows what people of yore saw as well, despite color photography possibly not being available at their times. However, the B&W's are nice as well, sadly, they need a better processor! the odd number 7, is a cellphone photo of my home

Just an update to thank you guys again for your guidance. Really wanted to go with the D600, but everywhere I looked I saw oil/dust and Nikon's aversion of the issue. Just did not want to go through the hassle.

So my little-used (under 1k actuations) D700 will be here early next week. Interesting that my ONLY lenses for it are Nikon MF, at this point. I had all of the best Canon zooms with my 7D, and frankly got bored with them. The X Pro1 or X100 will remain my travel cameras, but I envision the D700, with the 28 2.8 and 50 1.2 getting around as well.

I actually own no zoom lenses at this point.

I will post some photos here when I get some experience. Thanks again!

I use Energizer lithium AA in grips, not rechargeables. I did get one of those from Adorama with my D600 bundle, but have not used it yet. 6 AA lithiums in the grip will last at least as long as a Nikon rechargeable battery.




Yes , I think those are OK . The ones to be wary of are the ElEn 3e generics and there like.

Don't spend too long getting experience. This thread is very friendly and I have never seen anything but constructive comment. Look forward to your pics.

ohh, is the 28 2.8 the Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 AIS per chance? If so I loved that lens, it offers so much!

I had the ISO at 100 and the speed was near max. I don't use a tripod but sometimes a mono-pod for my 300 mm
