Low light-ish at 400mm, ISO 1600 with no NR applied



Very low light at 400mm near MFD, ISO 7000 with no NR applied

Shot with 100-400 with 1.4 TC. Nikon Z7ii, 1/125s, f/11, ISO 64, 540mm and almost 100% crop. Processed in NX Studio and applied a curse adjustment and sharpened with Topaz Sharpen AI in Photoshop. This lens really shines!

No edits, handheld, no TC, wide open on Z7ii. Would have been even better without the low clouds coming and going.

Do you have to have the latest version of nx studio to get the curse adjustment? I looked everywhere in my nxstudio and didn't find it! 😢

I realize that this is an "images" thread, but I do not think that there is another thread devoted to a discussion of this lens. Brad Hill (wildlife photographer) just posted an initial review of this lens: http://www.naturalart.ca/voice/blog.html#anchor_100-400_Early

Wide open at 400mm and handled the busy grass foreground and background about as well as you can!

Would be more informative if all you image posters would include the EXIF info to accompany your images. Just check the EXIF box when you choose your images to upload.

I agree. Those do look soft. Either a bad copy, bad shutter speed, or bad handholding technique.

Brad Hill seems to think it holds up to the 70-200S, 120-300 f2.8, and 180-400 f4 (at the same apertures), so either he has an exceptional copy or any flaws you're seeing in posts are due to post processing choices, image compression, atmospherics, or settings/technique choices.

They look pretty good to me. Maybe I have low standards. I'm just a casual yet enthusiastic shooter

These look soft on 2 monitors I looked at (5K iMac and another IPS res one), but sharp on my phone

Eagle and moon are crops that would look dumpy at 5K for sure

Looked at shutter speeds and cow/buzzards were probably about 1/100th slower than they should have been for the FL, once I learn the Z a little better I'll get faster at dialing in on the fly. My rule of thumb on Sony is no slower than 1/640 at 400mm, I should be able to get away with 1/500 I'd think on the Z7.
