That is what I like about the D600
I only cropped a little of the ocean off the top and some off the bottom to even things out
I keep thinking about Scott's 300 and what king of images I might get with it
I am really starting to love this camera

Reagan



Great shots. I am debating between the D600 and D800 at this moment. Local CL has a D800 and it's calling my name. It has only 50 shots on the unit. I am selling to get it but still debating what to sell

You could sell that 50 1.2 ai-s or that new 135/2
I really like the lighter weight of the D600

Here's some shots from today. It was such a beautiful day I had to go out exploring. I went to Lakeland to the Holis Gardens and I am never disappointed there. It is such a wonderful garden!
I used four lenses today including my recently repaired 105 2.5

Frankenstein 105 2.5


35mm 1.4 AIS


85mm 1.4 AIS


300mm EDIF 4.5 AIS

Peter B - be a little wary of cheap batteries. There are quite a few horror stories on the net that frightened me away from teh real cheapies.


I use Energizer lithium AA in grips, not rechargeables. I did get one of those from Adorama with my D600 bundle, but have not used it yet. 6 AA lithiums in the grip will last at least as long as a Nikon rechargeable battery.

Rafael, your scenery from California is always neat. Cool new acquisition of the 5cm 1.4S. That really can be AI'd?



Samy, it is not a 5cm 1.4 S it is a 5cm 2.0 S, this is the first lens that came out with the new nikon F reflex camera in 1959. The 5.8CM followed and was active for a couple of years, then in 1961 or 1962 the 5cm 1.4S came out and the 5cm 2.0H replaced the S. This is a seven element lens as sharp wide open as the current 1.8G, it does not become as sharp as the 1.8G as you close it down, but it is sharp enough and has a really interesting look at 2.0. It cannot be factory ai converted with a ring, but the aperture ring be cut into working in ai mode with current cameras.

PS, I will be photographing this event tonight with the D800 and the 50-300mm ED

Nations of San Diego International Dance Festival at the Coronado Performing Arts Center.

http://www.nationsdancefestival.com/

I was given full freedom to select my place to photograph from. There will be many diffferent world dance groups. Found an exit door where I can set my tripod, get a good angle, I won't be blocking it as I will be the first one out if need be.
I thought about using the D3 and the 80-200mm 2.8 ED ais, to minimize file size and get a faster aperture. But I tend to defocus the single lens ring when zooming, with the 50-300mm I can zoom and focus separately and get far more focused shots and might as well use the D800 to maximize image size and post processing options. I will be spending a lot of time post processing several hundred photos, but what can I do, if I had a D4 I would use that.

Love this one Ray

Ray - Nice shot from that 85mm f1.4 AIS. Something I don't have and would like to own one. What f-stop was that on?

Thank you Rafael, Americo and Chuong. I had to stop it down to F4 because of the bright sun. I really need a good ND filter

MDoc9523, Do you adjust ISO to its lowest, say 50? Also, do you up the shutter to as near max when shooting in to bright a place? Was this tripod, or handheld? Thank you!

Taking a walk today and almost fell over Bambi. She ran off but stopped a couple hundred feet away for a glance. 80-200 4.5







Ron, liked the way you inserted the "bambi" in its environment - he/she? has good camouflage
