Used the HP4 conversion in Silver EFX. Just pulled up the brights a schooch in the tonal curve. Thanks for the kind words. Yep, seriously gorgeous bride. Groom, like me, is way overchicked.
I think maybe I prefer this as a b/w?
Tim: Well said. Couldn't agree more. Jorgen's photos always have that positive, human, character.
No "drop ship". Amazon sent me a "sorry we won't have your camera until mid-November" letter. I saw on NikonRumors that someone had purchased one at Best Buy before the release date. I went to Best Buy's site and ordered one on Oct. 15th. I expected it to change to "pre-order" all weekend, but it didn't. I got a shipped notice on Monday and received it on Tuesday. I then cancelled the Amazon Order. Pure luck.
I'm pleased so far. I wanted a smaller Nikon and this qualifies. It would be a good backup camera and for getting a little more reach. Haven't used the Q setting. Didn't notice how loud the normal settings were. When ACR supports it, I'll really get a better impression of the IQ. It's not a D3s, but I took some photos all the way up to ISO H1 2 (25,600) that were useable. HCB would think they were too good. No arguments from me on the M8/M9.
BTW: Beautiful wedding photo. I like the processing a lot. Excellent contrast while holding the detail.
Rayyan, Delightful Framing,Color & Contrast!
Some more from my quick, pre-work, stop yesterday morning.
for the envelope of golden light that surrounds the area. Really lovely.
A few from this afternoon. Jpegs from the camera. Cheers, Matt.

A story here Matt, and how to do it!!
The first pic is excellent for its angle of view
as it shows the cabby and the environment within their context. The colors
have been rendered very nicely.
The second photo brings us closer, getting us nearer to the point of interest.
The third and final one, which I think is beautiful, is what it is all about.
A photo essay, excellently executed and presented.
A couple from the Pike Place Market. Not your usual tourist with a point-n-shoot. The President was in town, maybe, he tagged along? Cheers, Matt

I strayed and not even to Zeiss. It's a Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC 0S (APS-C). I looked at Nikon's offerings and thought this was newer tech, faster, and better built then their low and mid-priced DX lenses. A lot cheaper then the 17-55mm f/2.8 ED-IF AF-S DX Nikkor.
The cabby didn't seem very busy. You really have to be a tourist to want to ride that around Seattle's downtown. Although, we did it at Christmas once to look at the lights.
Here's a quick one pretty much right out the camera from an E shoot last weekend.
D3 16-35 at 21mm, f4, 1/250th ISO 100 w/ fill flash.. or really blinding strobe since I was shooting into the sun
D3 70-200 at 200mm, f2.8, 1/1600th ISO 100 Was dodging taxi's and cars in the middle of the street below them... worth it!!
