Thanks to everyone for the kind comments.

I'm in the middle of a golf week so will be out of touch for a couple of days. BUT the quality of photos as well as the discussion here are so good I just can't keep away!!

Really? I much prefer the M9 files.

They were all RAW then converted to jpeg via LR4.

I'm not that keen on the X-Pro ... I hated the X100 due to it's AF, but the size and IQ always intrigues me with Fuji so I bought the X-pro 1 and honestly I find nothing special about it.

I'm actually going to sell all my Fuji gear along with the D800e and just use the M9 for now.

I never use my Nikon AF lenses, so they are going too ... too many lenses and too many choices when I'm going out to take photos.

I'm with you Dean - the M9 is gorgeous - but it's the lenses as much as the camera. At $3 - $5k a pop you'd hope so. Although I found anything above 50mm almost impossible to focus.

I'm very curious to see what the D800 files look like when the new zeiss lenses designed for 30+ mp cameras come out. These high res sensors may come into their own. I think the D800 is better than the M9 on dynamic range and colour - and those lenses may take it way ahead on sharpness and resolution too.

Wanted to see how the 100-300 5.6 AIS would hold up to the demands of the D600

Whoa! You're killing us with these shots Ray. I do believe the humble 100-300 f/5.6 AI-s is up to the task at 24 megapixels. This is a fine lens now that we're getting more light. I'll have to pull mine out and play a bit, though I don't have these exotic butterflies to capture. Beautiful images Ray. Excellent work on every level.

Thanks Dean. If you could, tell your friend Robert that's marvelous work.
I don't venture out often, not particularly keen on the city and crowds but did so because Anton was in town
And it was a pretty inspiring show, 10mins of lights and now I'm planning for night shots (8pm!) around the area, with the 'crown' as the focus

Oh and have you considered sending the D800e around the world? First the lens, now the body!


Not something I've considered ... how about an FM2 and a roll of film ? Still full frame

Interesting what you say about these new Zeiss lenses ... I have never heard of them before.

Regarding the images I posted, I wasn't trying to make a comparison about image quality between bodies and lenses as the 50/1.2 Ai-S I used on the Nikon is a super lens and always delivers amazing IQ. I love that lens more than any lens I've ever owned.

What I was trying to whinge about is why does the Nikon over expose the whole scene when the other two didn't which happens to me more often than I'd like? When I dialled in around -1 EV, the image from the Nikon was every bit as good as the Leica ... but why do I have to do this constantly.

It seems I found the answer in that the D800 gives preferential treatment and over corrects (in matrix mode) what ever is under the focus point and in this case it was a dark part of the scene which made it over expose the rest of the scene. This, according to Thom Hogan is new to the D800 and not seen in previous pro bodies.

I guess knowing this I should probably try and meter off something more neutral in the scene even when in matrix mode, but it just seems silly to have to do this in a camera like this.

Anyway ... enough whinging from me ... I'll either deal with it or sell it and just get on with it

Thank you Kevin and Curtis. I thought that the 100-300 5.6 held up pretty well. Certainly not quite as good as the prime lens but it's versatility in focal lengths along with the excellent quality is definitely a bonus for this lens. I was able to buy her for around $100.oo
As an edit: perhaps this lens could be the next around the world lens? Whatcha think?

+1 Ray! It does not matter what lens is in your hands, you always produce beautiful images.

Thank you Scott. Looks like you've finally got some great weather coming your way. Can't wait to see some more shots with the 16mm 3.5.

Thanks for the comments Samy, Scott, Leighton, Jose and Georg.

Mark, love the camping shots, especially the long pano.

Leighton, excellent father-son portrait, and the beer shot is very appealing!

Peter, wonderful shots from the reserve. That protea is amazing.

Philippe, nice work with the shop windows.

Reagan, the "pointy things" are very nicely done. Great bokeh.

Curtis, love the SF Victorians, and the beer!

Samy, beautiful herons and bluebird.

Georg, I really like your ice hockey shots. Those uniforms are wild!

Ray, great portraits and butterflies.

Ray in Ohio, very nice sky in "Red Trail."

Paul, terrific jazz set.

Scott, looks like Spring is taking hold. Congrats on the 16mm.

Jose great crater shots.

Rafael, very nice flower field photos.

John, that's a very cool AVI!

one with the 20mm f3.5 taken today on interstate 70 in Utah at "Ghost Rock lookout" - about an hour before the blizzard arrived. I only have Photoshop 7.01 on this old laptop, so I am a bit challenged. from memory this was f8 about 1/120s iso 100, D600







can't post a stitch with the 105mm, because there is no image merge in PS 7.01, but hey, it's an 11 year old piece of software from the days the D1 was still the top dog.

If you do, I really want to be a part of it! I missed Nikki, don't want to miss another one.

Sorry, but here's a monitor breaker - gotta compete with Mark's lovely super wide!

Panorama of the Olympic Mts. from my last PanSTARRS outing while waiting for the sun to go down.

18 vertical orientation shots with the 400/5.6 ED AI stitched in PTGUI (Photoshop could not do it).
