Also, today is Nikki's last day in Seattle and I'm going to try to take a few last shots before she gets boxed up.

Nice to see you back on the thread Nancy and I love this image. Black and white was a good choice. I know I'm a bit of a snob in selling my copy of that excellent lens. I'm happy others are putting it to good use. Well done.


Hey Curtis - glad to be back. Nice blossoms. The pic is not black and white, actually; just shot into the bright water and overexposed , then pulled back in Lightroom. Only color in it is some CA in the highlights.

Easy does it. As far as I know, there's not very many on here that use dropbox to post photos. It's not that we're ignoring you, it's just that the right person hasn't seen your question. Please have a little bit of patience.

It will be a cash deal . . . which means I need to sell some other stuff. Looks like the 80-200/2.8 AFS is going up for sale plus a whole lot of other stuff! Hopefully it won't get sold before the weekend.

I am assuming that you know how to copy public link from your Dropbox. Then you just paste it on here. Remove the 's' from https to be http only. Then submit. That's it.

Okay i have a stupid Question ! I have a dropbox account and sometimes i would like to download a pic to you guys for some cc . how do i do that ?

Mvh Clouseau

I'm not sure how you would do that from dropbox. Most of us here use on line photo sharing sites such as Flickr, Zenfolio, Piasca or Photobucket. I would suggest going to one of these sites and set up an account. Most are free of charge. Once you do that I would be more than happy to help you figure out how to post those photos here.

Hmmm . . . original post at 8:02 am PST and his impatience shown at 9:30am PST. I guess and hour and a half was too long for him to wait . . .

Thanks Kevin, Jeff, Scott, Rafael and Georg.

Georg, the D600 is "cheap" compared with the D3 construction, but its light weight and sensor are positive points.

As Leighton and other talked about the "ISO 50" vs. ISO 100 of D600, I made a quick test and have noted no differences:

General scene, D600 + 135mm f/3.5 @f8 + tripod + remote trigger, live view focused; greener retangle is DX crop just for reference for other tests I will post further.

Even at 200% viewing I see no difference between ISO 50 (L1) vs. ISO 100 of my D600. Can you detect any difference?

The only differences are (red markings) a slight displacement to the right of histogram, and a tiny increase in file size for the L1 (ISO 50) images at left.

What about D600 vs D3 sensors ?

Of course I used the same lens (135/3.5) + tripod + remote cable and same setups for each camera, and live view was used for best focusing.

No surprise a upsized (to D600) D3 image does not match resolution of the native D600.

On the other hand, downsizing D600 image and both cameras are similar, no surprise too.

Thanks for the comparison Jose. I can't wait to see further tests between the D600 and D7000

I promise, this is the last (Ray is the guilt for this )

What about D600 dx crop vs D7000?

Of course I used the same lens (135/3.5) + tripod + remote cable and same setups for each camera, and live view was used for best focusing. Both at ISO 100.

Well here there is a surprise for me because D600 upsized image stands very well against the native D7000 image, if not contrastier (!?):

No surprise a downsized (to the D600 dx crop) D7000 image looks like similar to the D600 dx crop:

Some day I will replicate to confirm or not the results.

Both cameras at SD picture control and images were straight from the camera, no edit other than resizing through CS5.

Here is one from a 200mm f/4 that I am selling here on the B&S forums . Bought this for my trip to Yosemite to try to shoot the FireFalls, but conditions were not that great for me to sit around for

Rafael - what a beautiful set! My favs are the "Driveway" and the last shot. That 25-50 is tempting ;-)


Georg, the 25-50mm is very useful for daytime and flash work, it is wickedly sharp from 5.6 up and so well built, a bit heavy and large. I allows one to frame the shot while beign as good as any prime on its aperture range.

most of the pics I posted were of the 16mm, here is a couple more of the 25-50mm, this house belongs to a family friend, my dad's was sold long ago. I had an "Out of Africa" longing for the place and this picture reminds me of it.

Wow, that is a beautiful tree! Great capture.

Rafael, your images are so crisp and clean as those of Philippe. Did you drink cognac too to make these spetacular PP?
