Re: Manual Focus Nikon Glass


I need to get out of the house, I will do one posting and not be back for a week or so.

Was checking some of my theater photos with the 80-200 2.8 ais and the 50-300mm 4.5, both used at full aperture, I used to use the 2.8 with film and the early digital cameras, as the ISO had to stay low. There are a few photos that follow with the D200, D3 and the D800. The D200 I would not take any higher than ISO 560, the D3 and the D800 can be taken to ISO 3200 in the theater while retaining good color and overall quality. The D3 wins at the pixel level but the D800 wins at print size. There is no question in my minds that for this game the real camera to have today is the D4.

and finally the D800 50-300mm 4.5 at ISO 3200. not as good as the D3, but all those pixels process really well

This was downsized to 12MP
