    The big negative is dynamic range. Even my E-1 was better, and the S3 is much better. I keep blowing highlights. It's unfortunate that the ISO-number isn't visible in the viewfinder, not even when I change it. It would also be nice if it metered with AIS-lenses. Even the Olympus does that. The answer to many of these questions is of course the D300, but it's bigger, heavier and much more expensive.

    But all in all, I'm very happy with the camera. It'll be interesting to see what the D90 has to offer.

    I'm off to Hanoi tomorrow. I'll mostly use the 85mm f/1.8 during my three days there. We'll see how that works out

    I agree about the bokeh in the last shot. That may be because I'm almost as close as I can get. It seems to look better at longer distances. The Voigtländer is on my shopping list, but so is a number of other things. Priorities, priorities...

    I wish Nikon could launch something similar to the Pentax Limiteds, particularly the 31 and 77. The bokeh of those lenses is to die for I've even considered buying a Pentax body just for those two.

    2 "dirty" HDR pictures from Nikon D80 + Zeiss 25/2.8
    Why is it dirty? because I did not use any tripod for these shots + very minimum of PS process hahahaha





    Too Lazy to carry a tripod >_<

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    That's the halo effect from not twiddling the luminance smoothing in the HDR app. Photomatix has a slider that allows you to control that. You can also mediate that effect by using more images (for example, 5 images ranging from -2 to +2 EV).

    Hi Carlos, I was using 3 picture for each picture.
    I set the bracketing mode ON + Continuous shotting.
    I'm using Photomatix Pro to create this HDR picture.

    Yes Jorgen, there is something not right at that sky hahahaha
    I think I should use more images next time

    I will try it next time!
    at this moment I'm really excited with my new toys, which is a Nikon "Ring Flash"
    I will try it out this weekend ^^

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Does it come with a counterweight so you don't tip over? There are enough batteries there to start a car!

    It's does not come with a counterweight, instead, It comes with a filter ring adapter for 62mm, 67mm, 72mm and 77mm

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Wow, I have never seen a ringflash like that! That's kind of weird. The only type I have really seen is similar to the Hensel ringflash.


    It's funny that they use lots of little flashes as opposed to circular lamps.

    A couple of recent shots with the D3.
    First shot with the 2,8/180mm AF Nikkor, second with MF 2,8/20mm Ais.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    WoW!

    And who says the D3 files are not great.

    It will be very interesting to see the tradeoffs, vis a vis file quality, between the D3 and the new(er) D3X with its 24Mpx sensor. We may all wish to stay with the wonders of the D3 files, albeit with much lower resolution. My personal opinion is that you need a MFDB with 39 Mpx or so, to really get beyond the D3. And given the D3's superior low light capabilities I would say you need the D3 absolutely for certain assignments and MFDB for the others.

    Just MHO

    Hi Woody
    Perhaps that's a rash remark before we've even see the files from a D3x . . . before, indeed, it's even been announced?

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Today was beautiful in NY, nice temp low humidity. So, after work I went to take a walk in the park. Well I walked right into the Corporate Challenge race. If you aren't familiar with it, there are races around the world with competitive and social runners/walkers. In addition there is a team t-shirt design contest. Here are some shots.....by the way most of these were at ISO 3200 to play it safe on shutter speed at a 350mm equivalent zoom and a maximum aperture of f5.6

    OK, before getting to the race...this little doggy clearly wants to be the center of attention and isn't feeling the love.....

    Should have put neighbor in quotes as she was just sitting next to me. I used the 18-200.

    I was on auto ISO with a min shutter of 1/250 since I was shooting at effectively 350mm. Since many were taken close to 7:30PM the auto ISO pushed me out to 3200. Guy and I have been talking about me buying the 180 f2.8. The 70-200 isn't exactly a great out for a walk in Central Park lens for me.

    You can try it in NY when I come. Just a better lens and very fast on AF and the biggy not expensive

    Terry,
    The 180 f/2.8 is a nice lens. I made the mistake of selling mine and may buy another copy.
    Have you tried the 70-300 VR? It is a super lens for the money and a great walk-around lens. It has really nice IQ. It is slow, but usually the sun is bright when I'm walking around, so that is not a problem.

    I have the 70-300. Again I would still have been at ISO 3200. The lens would have been at f5.6 and on that lens I know I need the shutter speed. I have a lot of shots with some camera shake from not paying enough attention to shutter speed at the long end of the zoom.

    I stumbled on this "old" shot, taken when I first got my D2Xs back in the fall of 2006. I had also just taken delivery of my Gitzo and ballhead so it was down to the pond on the night of a full moon. Sorry about the crop, but I've lost the original

    Basically I agree with your assessment. Except that for the time beeing I'm using the 1DsIII when high resolution is required. I know it's not on the same level as the 39 mpx MFDB, but it is clearly outresolving the D3. I agree that the D3 is an essential camera due to its excellent allround properties and unique low-light capability. It is a camera that will not become redundant for quite a while IMO.
    The more I use the D3, the more I like it. Time and again when I develop an image (in NX) I think, yes that's exactly what it looked like. I only sporadically get that reaction from my Canon files.

    After walking around Hanoi for a day in the rain, at dusk, I stumbled across this martial arts class for children and teenagers at an old temple. I wish I had a faster camera, a faster focusing lens and better high ISO. Still, we had a lot of fun. Both images with the D80 and 85mm f/1.8

    The teacher @ f/2.5 and 1/100s



    The students @ f/2.2 and 1/200s

    I like all the shots.....also got a little laugh that you want a faster lens than your f1.8
    Clearly your presence made no difference to the little girl practicing. The woman on the cycle still looks so nicely dressed considering even with the rain poncho and hat that she is probably getting drenched in the pouring rain.

I agree that the D3 is an essential camera due to its excellent allround properties and unique low-light capability. It is a camera that will not become redundant for quite a while IMO.
    The more I use the D3, the more I like it. Time and again when I develop an image (in NX) I think, yes that's exactly what it looked like. I only sporadically get that reaction from my Canon files.
    HI Arne
    I'm very excited about the D3x - granted, it isn't going to be as good as a 39mp back, but I think that Canon have rather been resting on their laurels with respect to high resolution, and the advent of the splendid new Nikkor f2.8 zooms (lets face it, wide angle zooms has never really been Canon's forte) might make for something very special.

    I was pretty gobsmacked when I did a comparison between the Zeiss ZF 25mm f2.8 and both the nikkor zooms at 24 - they were much better at all apertures (especially the 14-24).

    My landscape work isn't about waiting for 2 hours in the dark for the sunrise with a tripod and a flask of coffee, it's about fleeting glimpses of light, about awkward places and it really isn't suited to MF. I'm hoping that the D3x will get me close.

    In the meantime, the D3 actually produces great results:

    Hi Jorgen
    They're all lovely, but this one specially caught my eye (girl doing the martial arts is also great).

    I keep nearly buying that 85mm f1.8 - such a nice small package, but I have the voigtlander 58mm f1.4, which isn't that different a focal length, and produces lovely results.

    Hi Helen
    I thought it was the blue mask that made the shot - I agree about Terry's lovely little 'neighbour'

    The blue mask makes the picture somewhat surrealistic: why is she wearing it? To protect her makeup?, air pollution? or it is de rigueur for scooter drivers in Hanoi these days? Anyways, nice shots Jorgen, both of them.

    Church, Trollhättan, Sweden.
    D3, 2,8/20mm Ais Nikkor.
    I'm constantly surprised at how well this lens performs on the D3. With my film bodies it was only so-so, quite disappointing on the D2x, but on the D3 it really sings.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thank you all for your kind words. A few comments about masks and helmets:

    Most girls riding motorbikes in Hanoi seem to wear these masks. They are available in any colour and a lot of patterns. I was surprised that the woman in the photo didn't wear a pink one, since everything else is colour coordinated. The purpose of the thing is probably a mixture of protection against pollution and bad smells in general, protecting the make-up, and last but not least: it has become fashionable to wear them.

    The hat is actually a motorcycle helmet. Those too can be had in almost any colour and shape. The Vietnamese have a thing about head-wear, and a normal motorbike helmet simply isn't enough.

    I shot 1,700 photos during my three days in Hanoi, most of them with the old, non-D 85mm, so I have a lot of sorting to do. Avoiding the tourist traps, Hanoi is really one of the most photogenic cities in the world, even if people in general are a bit "photo-shy".

    Lovely shot of the church, Arne. Is that near the canal to Vänersborg?
