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



Now THAT would be an adventure I'd participate in... What about it Dean? If you're not happy with the camera we can "break it in" for you...

Sorry for the long Pano. This is a 10 shot pano of Lago Garda shot from the trail to an old Franciscan hermitage in the cliffs above a town called Gargnano. One of the few sunny days we had, most of the time it was grey with very flat light.
Shot with the 75-150mm at 75mm.

Willing to go back there again to see how good it looks with Deans D800E..

New (old) Lens Poll:

Need some sage advice re a used (EX+, LN-) lens acquisition, based upon some credit I have with KEH. I know the dreaded AF is involved, but so is a MF lens, so help me out!

Choice 1: an EX+ Nikon 24-70 2.8G ED

Choice 2: a LN- Tamron 24-70 2.8 Di VC USD AND a EX- Nikon 135 2 AI-s

To accommodate Choice 2 I would have to sell them my 135 2.8 AI-s. OK by me, as I don't need 2 mf lenses in that focal length.

The Nikon is well, be best available now for Nikon. The Tamron is pretty good, and has the advantage of vibration control. The 135 2 AI-s you know about.

What do you think? I have no problem with non-Nikon lenses if they are good. My 2 Rokinons are extremely good. On the other hand, I doubt that I have used the 135 twice since I acquired it. Do I need to upgrade it?

Help!

Well if you really "need" the AF lens, I'd pick number 2, just because it has the 135mm f2. Then I'd sell the Tamron and get the 85mm f1.4 AI-s along with the 180mm f2.8 AI-s ED. Remember, you did ask.

Hah! Already have the 180mm! Got the Rokinons for 35 and 85 (MF, just not Nikon MF). Actually, I am leaning towards Choice 2 as well. They are holding those for me...

I got my new Black Rapid camera strap and I love it. Walked around all afternoon at the birthday party and felt no strain whatsoever. Very comfortable! It felt secure and always ready whenever a photo op presented itself.

The Photobucket link is broken, since their site is badly broken too since their "upgrades". I may be rethinking their service... I had a nice panorama that isn't displaying properly...

While shooting the panorama that needs a new home, I had a flyover as well, so that shot is over here since it was with an AF Lens

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/600984/3645#11471264

And lastly, both of these shot with the 105 f/2.5 AI-S

I just bought a new backup desktop hard drive. Costco has Seagate 4TB drives for $169. They also come in 1 and 2 GB models.

Quite a buy....that should last a few years. D3 User here with 300 GB in pics.

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
