I will underexpose before exposing to the right any day. It's unbelievable what you can get out of the shadows without any noise with these new sensors. The D600 is one of the highest ranked sensors when it comes to DR.



my moon pictures showed nothing on the right 80% of the histogram (but the stars were there as I later noticed in post). Love the D600, and I'd use it of the body was made out of Lego bricks. Can't understand why some could discount this camera based on the shape of it. The sensor/price performance is totally off the scale compared to all other FX cameras.

I also prefer to underexpose
also to under achieve


Let me know when it's time for you to sell it.

Hey friend how goes the search for the 35mm 1.4 AIS? I am also keeping an eye out for one for you. Maybe I can find you a "Ray" deal

If you don't but the 20mm f/3.5 for yourself--definitely buy it and pass the deal on here! I want it! Seriously though, if they are selling for $100, it probably isn't seeing much use. That lens deserves some camera time out in the world :-)

Alright, then it might be a good idea for me to pick up this 20/3.5 Ai version that is selling for about 100 USD!

Here are two I took today, using the newly arrived 105/2.5 Ai:

I like your style Steve! I know auto ISO is a preference. We have so many new people using these beautiful lenses for the first time. I thought sharing my technique might help the transition coming from auto focus, auto settings, VR and yes even Professional mode


Time honored in the tradition of the thread to offer a helping hand to folks either new to these lenses, cameras and processing. I always find it quite remarkable how much useful information gets passed along on this thread. I've learned a great deal along the way...

wise people on this thread wait while you try out lenses Reagan because they expect if they wait long enough, you'll sell and they'll get a great deal... You definitely provide an important service for all of us...

Ronny, great use of both the 50 and 180. I'll have to look at my local stores for extension tubes this week.
Laura, nice shots of the snowy tulips.
Curtis, the watercolor bokeh of the 105 1,8 is indeed great!
Dean, thank you!

With the 105 2,5 AiS:

I bought my 20mm f/3.5 AI for $99. One of the best buys in my "kit"

Best laid plans... I went to Best Buy to get my hands on a D610. I'd held the D600 there some time ago and as mentioned, liked the feel better than the D800. I brought a lens and mistakenly brought a compact flash card, forgetting that the D610 uses a different card. When I saw how the camera was displayed I figured I wasn't going to get too much out of this excursion...


With the theft deterrent wires and zoom lens I couldn't get much of a feel for the camera but I did note one reason why I liked the D600 better. The ridge on the back of the camera where the thumb rests is, like the D700, raised sufficiently that the thumb and fingers can easily old the camera without having to apply pressure. The D800 greatly reduced that ridge. I really dislike holding the D800,

No rush but always curious about such things... Thanks for all the comments.

I love your work Flo. I'm delighted you found us and share your photos. And yes, the 105 f/2.5 is a great lens and has been for a very long time. In capable hands such as yours it will produce stellar images.

I haven't found a Df anywhere in Marin... perhaps if I went to S.F. I'd be able to hold one in my hand. I've certainly been impressed with what folks on this thread have been doing with the D600, so I wouldn't rule that out as my next camera... if there is a next camera... At 55,000 shutter actuations I've not yet broken in the D700...
