    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Coming from years of owning Canon DSLRs.....I'm slowly building my arsenal of Nikon AF lenses for the D700 and D800E.

    I borrowed a friend's 80-200mm f2.8D lens yesterday and tried it out on the D700 today. It seems quite good, comparable to my Canon 70-200/4L (non-IS) lens....but heavier. This weekend I'll see how this lens performs on the D800E (and the D2X).

    Is anyone else using this lens? Your thoughts? Certainly more affordable than the latest 70-200/2.8 VR alternative.

    As a side note....these images remind me of why I am keeping the D700. Images from the 36mp D800E are great, but the D700 is still a wonderful camera in its own right.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Here are a couple shots from my cousin's wedding. Shot with D800E and 50 1.8 AFS. I was just sitting my the seat, snapping a few pics with the new camera. I didn't really see any moire issues. These were also just jpgs. Didn't have large enough cards to shoot raw...I'll try and test it out some more this weekend.

    Tack sharp, and clean and clear. Easy to see why you'd keep that D700. Gorgeous rendering.

    The pics look very good, BUT I have to say it: Your other portraits had some magic that I do not see here. Just saying it.

    I really like these two portraits. Putting the technical quality aside for a moment...

    I love the simplicity and the warmth of the expression. The use of natural light and natural tones. Really lovely work... images that will mean a lot to the subjects many years from now.

    If they were my kids I would be thrilled.

    Technically they are flawless! I also think that the agility of the camera helped you achieve what you did.

    I am very happy with the Nikon 85mm 1.4G too.

    Thanks for posting these.

    I have the 85mm 1.4G and love the lens, but it has a very specific look to it.
    It sort of has a bir of a fantasy look to it. I like that most of the time, but wanted a lens as an alternative that is a bit more real and direct looking.
    The sheer quality of the 105 macro is just the ticket.

    OK off to order it now.

    Edit:

    It's almost silly how inexpensive that lens is...$900! And it has VR

    The shot of the nails sold me ... such nice fall off and bokeh at 5.6

    I get what you are saying here... but just know these were in the first 10 shots I took with the camera... right after the UPS man delivered the lenses.

    No reflectors, no set-up, no lights, no agenda... just "hey kids, step outside and let me snap a few shots."

    One thing I will say... the RZ lenses still have something special that my current lenses do not. It will take some testing to find just the right lenses... maybe the 84/1.4 is the ticket. Time will tell.

    Another shot with the 80-200/2.8D and the D700. I just can't pull my eyes away from all the old industrial machinery etc...I think this is an excavator.

    I placed an order for this lens today.

    "Naked portrait" (without makeup). Simple setup using natural light and one reflector. I used Nikon D3x and PC-E 45/2,8 @ f3. Maybe not my first choice of lens when shooting portrait, but it's fun.

    >and light.

    Use a bit of shade. Light at these events are mostly hard California sun.

    Note: When we used our Nikon F2s in 1970th we loved the 85mm the most. Back to the new 85mm now.

    What lovely kids! I officially authorize you to brag about them whenever you feel like it.

    But on a more serious note... they are quite special images. Beautiful images of our kids and family members are IMHO of more value than all the fancy celebrity portraits I do.....

    For example I love the work of this lady:

    What kind words. Thanks Fred! And what a neat Flickr link... I love that work. I'll have to follow along.

    Actually.. the main reason I moved out of MF was to have something more capable of shooting my kids. The D800 offered near (better in some cases) MF quality and the convenience of a DSLR such that I could get back to shooting more candids without lugging an RZ or AFD and being confined to ISO 200 and below...

    Case in point... Sitting here perusing GetDPI, I saw shot this about 5 minutes ago. Grabbed the camera and shot away without worry. Vacation sunburn, ice cream and all... I love this little girl...


    Cheers!

    I spend far too much time underground now, and the summer heat doesn't make it any nicer!

    It's my favourite image so far, in part because I was told I 'couldn't' use a PC-E handheld, part because the 3 women seemed to line up exactly how I was hoping they would.

    We've had the same here - +11 and rain all day today. That said, it's not such a bad thing for me given the amount of work I have to get through.

    On the Tube theme...

    Sigma 10-20


    50 1.8D


    10-20 again



    24 1.4 Still figuring out how to use this, though I'm finding it hard to not walk out of the door with 2 24s



    With all the noise about the D800, I wonder how people would respond if a company just went and contracted Sony to make an MF sensor with the D7000/D800 pixel design?

    Mikael: Love the high key portrait. The sand sculptures are impressive (and that last one is inspiring!)

    ausemmao: Welcome to the forum. Really nice images. Looks like we have lots to learn from you! Looking forward to more! And I think if Sony did as you suggest, it would be a winner. Especially with all the Zeiss glass available in Sony mount.
