    I don't know what "better" is, Rayyan. There seems to be something special about the colours in Indonesia. As for time, November is as good as it gets in SE Asia. I don't know about Yunnan, but I would think it's similar. February is probably dry season there too.

    Playing around with the 105mm Micro-Nikkor lens and D800e. Trying to decide if I need/want to upgrade to the D810.

    I've been very pleased with my 105 Micro/D800e combination, and use it often.

    How do you define "upgrade"?

    Just because a camera has a later/higher model number does not make it "better".

    I see no difference in specs between the two, and they're exactly the same price.

    Hi Leigh. From what I've heard/read, the D810 has somewhat faster and more accurate autofocus, better Liveview etc. Several people here on GetDPI have mentioned that when using the D810 with manual focus lenses the focus confirmation signal seems to be more accurate. That is something I would really appreciate when using my Zeiss and Nikkor MF lenses.

    OK. I'm not sure how AF would be "faster" given that the focus motor is in the lens, not the camera body.

    Of course, accuracy of any AF system depends critically on the speed of the lens in use.

    It will vary with different max apertures, being more precise with faster lenses.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I bought an 810 because one was available and I own a photography site where we talk about gear But the reality is I didn't *need* it, just wanted it. And I still own an 800e too. I like the 810, am glad I have it, it is a little (and I mean little) faster (or perhaps just locks faster) AF than the 800e -- irrelevant for the type of image above. The live view is superior -- check one. ISO 64 is a skosh smoother than the e's 100 -- you might see it in the type of image above, might not. The 810 has a bit more DR -- useless in the above image, and useless in most real-life images as the 800e already needs black added to most of it's captures. So basically at the end of the day for the type of image you took above, it woudn't matter hardly a hoot which one you shot it with, other than a little friendlier live view. In fact, shoot it with both cams and process them out and I'll bet they'll be as near identical as if you'd shot it with two different D800e cams.

    PS: In fact, it's hard to imagine any camera or lens combo that would have yielded a significantly superior image technically than what you posted above.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Thanks for the great insights Jack...from a guy who knows his gear and owns both the 800e and 810. The only reason I am giving serious thought to replacing my 800e with a 810 is because some folks here have said the focus confirmation is more accurate with the 810. Do you have any experience with that feature?

    I hate to admit it on this forum, but when I am shooting with DSLRs, I rarely use a tripod now and I have never used Liveview (yes...I know I should do both). The shot above was hand held. VR might have been turned on, I can't remember. So the bottom line is, over the past few years I've become a somewhat lazy photographer, but one who still prefers to focus thru the viewfinder, not on a LCD screen. Can't believe I am admitting it on this forum. I love using manual focus lenses, but my 61 year old eyes find it is getting harder to do with the focus screens used in modern DSLRs.

    If the D810 focus confirmation is significantly more accurate than the D800 when using MF lenses, then this is reason enough for me to upgrade.

    Sigma sent me a 24-105 F/4 DG OS A lens to test on the Df. Very sweet lens and sharp, sharp, sharp. Here is a shot of it on my Df:

    Our autumn really is not impressive this year, with many trees losing their leaves before they change colour..... seems it is too warm and no decent cold snap to trigger the burst of red colours.



    Taken with my "new" 24-70mm and old D800......

    I have not taken it for an outing. So cannot give the wonderful vistas being posted here.

    And we do not have pets either. And I quit smoking. Makes for a dull and boring home. Just like those that live in it.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I was going to take some photos for a friend today, and just grabbed the camera that was closest to the door of my dry cabinet, the trusty, old D300. While looking for the Tamron 17-50mm, another lens caught my attention: a Sigma 70-300 that came with the D700 I bought last year. It was my intention to sell it, but they go for just 100 bucks second hand, so I haven't bothered so far.

    So, I took it with me. Not exactly Otus quality, but the price ain't Otus either

    Thanks, its actually focus stacked from 5 separate shots, blended using Helicon Focus. Refracted light through glass but it looks as if its water.

    The air was tantalizing and so was the light.

    Continuing my tests around the house in various lighting; I find the Df images SOOC will take some beating.

    I might just use this for b&w, and the Fuji for color.

    Ray, have to agree the Df OOC jpegs are pretty amazing, and even especially in their native color -- it is reminiscent of a Vericolor palette to me, which was a favorite. One thing I reco though is to turn sharpening down 1 or 2 notches -- lest you get a high-contrast-edge halo like the one along your "D" in Dior. On the upside, they only show at the focus plane when using really good glass, but it's an indication to me that N felt this cam would see a lot of older glass mounted on it...

    I have shoot setting 2 as a dedicated B&W setting, and then also turn sepia toning on a low level 1 for just a touch of warmth.
