Quick comparison of the D600 vs D7000 at 6400 iso. I used the 50mm1.4 on the D600 and the 35mm 1.4 on the d7000 both at F8 1/100 and 1/125 respectively

Just one more reason for that larger sensor.

I'm thinning out my herd just a little bit so a few lenses need to find new homes so I thought I would try to keep them in the thread before posting them in the B&S, CL, or fleabay. They are all in excellent shape optically, mechanically, and cosmetically, although the 300/2.8 has a little bit more wear on the mount and strap rings.
28/2 AI - $350 - The thought of selling this one makes me sore, but I'm really struggling to focus with any manual WA lenses, so I'm going to let it go.
50-135/3.5 AI-S - $130 - Great lens, but I just don't use it.
300/2.8 ED AI-S + Wimberley P40 plate - $1000- Another great lens, but with one baby here and another on the way, I've got things that I need to carry other than supertelephotos...

If anyone is interested, shoot me a PM. All of those prices include shipping.

And I'd be remiss if I didn't show some pictures too, all from the D700+50/1.2 AI-S

Eli just hanging around with some big and small aunts and uncles:


I've been shooting a lot of 1600 ISO HP5+ in my Leica lately, and I find the grain quite pleasant and unobjectionable. A fringe benefit of this is that I no longer have any qualms about shooting at 12,800 ISO (HI1) on my D700. There aren't many scenes that are too dim for handholdable exposure with 12,800 ISO and f/1.2 This is SOOC without any noise reduction. It looks fine at full resolution too.


Lastly, we're over halfway to having little Hudson number 2. We had quite the surprise when a very noticeable feature popped up on the ultrasound monitor. Turns out that our 2nd baby is going to be a boy rather than a girl!

Congrats on the baby, and hopefully you don't have to repaint the nursery again. Glad to see you're going to help carry babies and bags.

And I'm going to thin one lens out of my herd...

The duplicate 180 f/2.8 ED IF AI-S.

I want to keep it in "the family" so first preference goes to active posters here. PM me to discuss it.

Ray, excellent comparison.
D600 image looks cleaner than the D700.

At 6400 iso the D600 is very usable and wins hands down, however the D7000 is no slouch. With a little NR post photos process quite nicely. I can only imagine that the D7100 will be even better!

Jose your photos are quite nice. The fact that the color and detail in these murals has lasted through the years is amazing!

So I'm shocked that I won another auction, this one for a 35 f/2 O AI'd. No, Jose, it is not the O.C. but like the H.C. 85, they don't come available very often with an AI conversion kit and this O does. As with the 28 f/3.5 H AI'd I bought, and the 85 f/1.8 H AI'd, I think I'll get by simply by being careful with the sun. I've not been disappointed with either of those lenses.

But I really do need to stop this nonsense. I think I need a 12 step program...

it's beautiful Curtis - but yeah, you've got a problem - it's not that you're buying too many lenses, hell, you only live once - it's that you're so impatient that you can't wait for a C lens to come up.

looks like they were playing Yankee Doodle at that point in time


if you have the bandwidth, [url=http://di] - it's a 24mb jpeg

Wow Peter, great details you got with the 105/2.5.
Well done pano!


Amazing Peter - I've spotted a couple of the joins where they don't quite line up - but it's nothing really - I'm amazing that with moving subjects it lines up at all!!

and it was a hand held pan... It probably works even better in dedicated stitching apps like Microsoft ICE. This was done with photomerge in Photoshop. I only felt the need to rubber-stamp the pink conductor's right arm back together. It wasn't pretty being severed in mid-air

D700 - Noct-Nikkor 58mm /1.2 - ISO 1250 - /1.2 - 2 seconds

D3s - Nikkor 24mm /2.0 AI - ISO 4000 - /2.8 - 1 second

Fantastic! Motivates me to get out in the wee hours here in Seattle since the AB is visible with this latest storm.
