    I've been wondering about that Sigma 50mm for portraits sometimes, but is it really four times better than this?
    Disclaimer: we're all aware you'd get good results with pretty much anything so it's a hard question -even rhetorical- to answer.

    Having said that, the Nikon 50 1.4G is a terrific performer for the size and price and would undoubtedly find its place in your travel bag. Then we could enjoy the even improved images you'll posted here.

    You should get one

    Wonderful portrait, Jorgen. And, no, it's not (4x better).

    Thanks, Corian!
    Lloyd, IŽm sure my wife will forgive me for posting this monument over her biggest trout of this summer. It ended up as a great meal - cooked by yours truly.

    Beautiful trout (and beautiful wife). Looks like a meal's worth for sure.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    (I posted this on the 200-400 thread, but I'll add it here to this recent group)
    At my niece's soccer match yesterday afternoon. The girl in blue never played soccer until this year (she's 14), but has been in gymnastics since she was 3-years old. An injury to her arm ended that for her, so she came out for the high school soccer team. What she lacks in skills, she more than makes up in hustle. Here, just at the end of the game she breaks away. Number 9 in white fouled her seconds after this shot, but the blue team converted the penalty kick with no time left, winning the match 4-3. This girl was carried from the field on her teammate's shoulders.

    Thanks Jorgen, LLoyd.
    Actually it could've been better, exposure, dop etc. but the gentle dog (rottweiler) was starting to take a "keen" interest... like the proverbial dog in an alley... so it turned out as a genuine snap shot.

    You can see here that #9 is going to be too late for her tackle. Great pic.

    I love shooting football (soccer). I used to teach Norwegian to a class of 19 football players (the yellow ones), all boys of 17. And then IŽd shoot their matches. No mor of that; I left teaching at Christmas. My daughter of 17 has been playing since she was 6, though.

    It's also one of my favorite sports to shoot. I've been shooting this same group of girls (the ones in blue), for several years. It's been an adaptation that has taken some time, as I never played myself. At first I didn't understand the game well enough to anticipate were the best action would occur. With sports I know well, it was much easier. I have to say, that I've become a fan.

    I lived in Europe for a few years, but never caught the football bug. I thought it was just a cute little game for people with no hand-eye coordination.

    I've repented.

    Now, an M8 shot... ( still kidding LLoyd )

    Early afternoon today was devoted to some DR testing with the 21mm on my way to pick up my wife who had an appointment. While waiting in the car, the calm, small street i was parked in suddendly turned into a craze thanks to a wedding car procession, all horns blazing.

    At this very moment a young girl and her mum walked out of the flower shop just in front of me... luckily enough i had the camera in hand checking some histograms. Here's what i got shooting through the windshield (now i know that emergency focusing with Zeiss when previously on infinite position (landscape shooting before) is not exactly easy nor accurate ):

    Well, maybe not "easy or accurate", but the results are very nice. (Gotta love that M8 )

    A couple of samples from the test shots mentionned above:

    f2.8 - minimum PP - no exposure compensation - single shots only

    Thanks Lloyd. It's pretty much my thinking too, even though i really like the unusual proportions on the first one.

    I'm interested in technical comments on these since i'm trying to document the DR and WB aspects of my current gear along with PP related possibilities. It's an area where Nikon + Zeiss combos are often criticized, to say the truth i find the preliminary results quite ok regarding the limited efforts involved for these test shots in extreme conditions and a wide lens @2.8 -with no exposure compensation on the body nor in the PP process.

    I usually don't need (nor care too much) shooting in such conditions, but it seems a valuable experience especially since after havig considered M9, M8.2 and A900/850, today i'm more, well, on the fence for getting a S5 to complement the D700 (instead of possibly "replace" with the former options).

    And down the road, get a D700x when available. After thorough consideration, i really like the versatility and quality of results from the Nikon + Zeiss system (hence the numerous tests recently conducted and often posted here).

    As of today the D700 in studio + S5 for some outdoor shots sounds attractive to me -and my needs.

    How's your head this morning Jorgen? Sounds like a good time.

    My life has been much quieter. Too much work and not enough play. As an example, the highlight of my day today was harvesting our Carrots. Scintillating!

    My head is fine. I even managed to get some work done this morning, before I took the bus to Pattaya and had a great dinner with my father at our favourite French restaurant. Bus back and home around midnight. Life isn't so bad if you think about it

    Nice carrots btw.

    Great party shot, Jorgen - and I can see the signs. Of beginning aquavit intoxication!

    sjms56 your pbase address looks wrong. If I were to post a pbase photo, I would do it this way: 1. copy the address above my picture in pbase. http://www.pbase.com/cindyflood/image/117472339
    2. Come here to getdpi and click on the yellow icon above with the mountain. In the box, paste the address string. Add /large.jpg (or /medium.jpg)
    The string in the box should read: http://www.pbase.com/cindyflood/imag...2339/large.jpg
    3. Click OK and the photo should be added.

    Hope this helps.
