Here are a couple with the 180mm 2.8. I should use this lens more.

Wonderful shots Jeff especially the first one!

Thanks everyone for your comments. Thanks Curtis for the tip. I will definitely use that grid more for shots like this.

The 16mm is so much fun and getting the rotation can be tricky. So scenes lend them selves more than others. I really like your shot and the rotation does provide some improvement.

Here's a few from today using the D600 and 300mm 4.5 EDIF Some of the shots required a very high ISO. The D600 seemed up for the task.
6400


2200

Jose, thanks again for the historical context around those super Pompeii photos. Doesn't look like the Roman artillery broke down those particular walls, the holes don't look that big. But I can imagine the Pompeiians living in fear from the sounds of the bombardment.

Kevin, loved that old car and the post processing you did!

Jeff, very nice capture of that road and the lane markers, crooked and all.

I would suggest, however, that when a box arrives at some future date, you should look very carefully to make certain it is an H.C. lens and not an H...

Quick question for you MF Nikon guys. I've been shooting Canon for years, but I keep thinking about picking up a D600 mainly for shooting Nikon and Zeiss MF lenses - I do shoot with some Nikkor glass on my Canon gear now. How is the focus confirmation function with Nikkor MF lenses? Is it generally reliable? I am developing an increasing fondness for old MF Nikkor glass.

I have the D7000 and the D600 and the conformation is right on with both of my cameras. I have tested all of my MF glass with live view focusing and found in both cameras are very reliable. The D600's viewfinder is so good you will be able to see the focus with out relying on the focus conformation light.

Hi Michael,

I shoot with a D700 and D800 and have very good results using the confirmation dot. I know there are a few D600 shooters on here, so hopefully they will chip in with their findings. With the prices of used D700's right now, I wouldn't dismiss it as an option either. I don't think you can go wrong with any of those options though.

Thanks.

I don't rely on any focus confirmation with any of my MF glass on my Canon bodies, but I thought I might be a useful feature for wide apertures and for subjects that don't have the patience to stay still for shots - like my dog......and my wife.

Does focus confirmation work with all AI and AIS NIkkor lens?

Agree with Ray there, although the focus confirmation dot is what I depend on most of the time and its very accurate, I haven't come across a situation where the results were off on the D800 (should be very similar to the D600).

Sometimes in low contrast situations, or low light (or adding teleconverters), the confirmation dot is hard to get, end up with flashing arrows instead. But the viewfinder for the D800, just like the D600 is very amenable to getting accurate focus also. Live view focus works best on a tripod.

Edit - yes, the focus confirmation dot works perfectly on AI, AIS, and even pre-AI lenses that a bunch of us have and are AI converted.

Agree with everything said here. I use the D7000. Same issue with the arrows flickering in poor light. Go to live view in that case (if on a tripod).

Welcome to the dark side!

Leighton, Curtis, Ray and Samy, thanks for the comments. The more I look at the road shot, the more I see things I'd like to work on. Next time I should bring a flagman so I'm not rushed by on-coming trucks.

Chuong, nice shot with the fisheye.

Ray, beautiful shots. The blue heron is spectacular!

I've shot MF glass on FX, DX, and CX Nikon cameras. the focus confirmation for me, is pretty good with all formats. Just make sure that you get the viewfinder tweaked for your vision diopter, if needed. Show us your stuff when you get your D600

Went to dinner tonight, something the local restaurant association puts on once a month, where they pick a restaurant, and everyone goes to eat there, special menu, and much to my surprise, a drawing. First time I've gone to one of these, and came home with this prize. My son also won something in the drawing, ad he got a blanket, and a pair of hockey tickets for a game in Cincinnati

Very nice, Jose. Really enjoying all your images from Pompeii.

We will be in Sorrento this Sept and will do day trips to Pompeii & Herculaneum. Maybe Vesuvius.

Choung, hope everything is OK, massive lens sale I see. Super capture of your home as well, great subject and framing for the FE lens.

Kevin, I'll chime in a little late but the treatment of the historic car is spot on.

Mike, those AB pictures continue to amaze. Definitely a bucket list sight to see in person.

Chin, the pair of dogs bring a big smile to my face everytime I look at the shots.
