    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    One from this morning on the way to work. Not the best perspective, but I didn't have much time, and you take what you can get sometimes. This was my first shot with the new 70-200/2.8 VRII using a teleconverter... the TC-14E II. I spot metered (using the camera) on the moon, so the rest is underexposed and there is some vignetting; I certainly didn't add any. This was wide open, so I'll have to do some experimenting to see what it looks like at all apertures.

    D3, 70-200/2.8 VRII @ f4, ISO 400, 1/640

    Cool view Lloyd. Man you guys need some snow down there. Just got back from Sundance, dry as bone. Love the Santa races.

    Thanks Rob. And too true... we really do need some snow. Looks like we've got it lined up for next week, so we're hopeful. I sure would like to be able to use the ski pass I bought in September. (BTW, most of the resorts are making snow, so they have some runs open. I no longer downhill (nine knee surgeries), but do XC ski.)

    Have you seen any vignetting w/o the TC?

    None at all with the D3 and the VRII version. I had a lot of vignetting with the 70-200/2.8 VRI model.

    Quick test of the new 70-200/2.8G ED VRII with the TC-14E II teleconverter. All three taken with the D3, Aperture Priority. These were handheld, and all taken within one minute. Shot RAW, and then processed in ACR 5.0. Processing was the same for each. Resize and sharpen for web in CS4:

    F4 - Vignetting clearly visible:


    F6.3 - Still visible, but reduced:


    F10 - Vignetting no longer apparent:

    Another winner. What's funny is that the theater I used to go to as a kid out on the Res, was in about that shape at the time! Seriously.

    Still busy running around, not getting much done, except some furniture yesterday. Here's from the preparations, two of the staff trying to adjust a chair built for big, strong westerners into shape, while I tried to get the exposure right. We all succeeded eventually

    Nice pictures. Not more Tiger Woods! Just kidding. I'm probably not the only one who thinks his wife's prettier then the rest of his harem.

    And, I hate to admit that I went and bought a 70-200mm VR II today (It's Lloyd's wife Mimi's fault). Keep feeding us more great sports/fanatics shots (even if you have to use your VRI). Cheers.

    Another nice photo. Your photos of the abandoned/vacant buildings have wonderful color and texture. Easy to imagine the people and the lives that used to populate them. Thanks for sharing. cheers.

    I went to a garden party the other day, and guess what; they had entertainment. A harpist! Not sure about the photographic qualities here, but who cares anyway...

    D80 with Tamron 17-50 @ 50mm and f/9.0. Metz 70 straight in her face.

    Went to the races last Sunday. Great fun as usual, particularly with my new, old 300mm

    S5 with Nikkor 300mm AF and Tamron 1.4x TC @ f/5.6



    Yes, we do like the Thai winter

    Hi John. Actually, it's the "Broad's Fork Twins", which is the next major peak south of Mt. Olympus. It's the most prominent, westerly peak between Big Cottonwood Canyon and Little Cottonwood Canyon. The East "Twin" isn't visible from the angle of this shot, which was taken from my front porch.

    As for snow, we haven't had much here yet either. Looks like it's coming next week... I hope so, we'll need the water next summer for sure.

    Hi Matt. I haven't tried Cornerfix on any Nikon files yet, but that's an interesting idea. I did find that the vignetting disappeared as I increased exposure, so I believe it's not as big an issue as what I was seeing with the VRI. (BTW, Mimi will be honored to have her opinion respected on anything photographic.)

    Ouch! Nope, just a piece of history.

    (I've seen that one with a couple of stories. Nice catch.)

    Here's a few from my lunchtime outing with the new 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII. It's an incredible lens. Focuses unbelievably fast. Didn't make for a very stealthy "street" kit. But, it's so fast that it's up to the eye, shoot, and down (have to be careful not to hit anybody!). Thanks for looking. Cheers.

    Terrific stuff, Matt. Don't need stealth sometimes, when the extra focal length means you don't have to be up in peoples faces. Glad to see you're happy with the purchase. I know I certainly am.

    Interesting shot, Jorgen. Lots of things going on. The surface of the street has a very appealing texture. What is that thing in the background. Looks like someone tipped over their waste basket.

    Somebody tipped over their waste basket

    Actually, it's outside the new Bangkok Art and Culture Center. There's cultural waste all over the place

    Matt, the 80-200 AF-S and the S5 is a marriage made in heaven. It will be very difficult to convince me that the newer 70-200 Mark II, III or IV will be an improvement, except for VR that is.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    First stab at a "David Hill Look". Granted, to achieve it properly, I would need multiple light sources in the shot to create a lot of specular highlights, but this is more of a test of the post-production methodology.

    You're right about the need for multiple light sources to get that "Dave Hill" look, but I do like the processing, very nice effect that stands on its own.

    I took a stab at that same "Dave Hill" look a while back. Here's a sample:

    Yes:

    a) You have to convert to DNG, and

    b) CornerFix will complain about "unsupported Camera model" - just ignore that.

    Actually, it's outside the new Bangkok Art and Culture Center. There's cultural waste all over the place

    Matt, the 80-200 AF-S and the S5 is a marriage made in heaven. It will be very difficult to convince me that the newer 70-200 Mark II, III or IV will be an improvement, except for VR that is.
    Great colors as always.

    Love the 80-200mm, that's the one zoom lens that i'd dearly regret selling when i parted with my analog Nikon gear years ago. The combo with the F3 helped me create more income than any other photographic equipment, a fantastic tool for "action portraits" in limited light from a distance (with the 50 1.2 AIS for -stiller- close-ups) ... but it now sounds like was another time and space.

    Did you have a chance to compare the AF-D (ring, not push pull) to the AF-S version ?

    Both are incredible value today considering the performance. And yes, no VR, but hey.


    P.S. i you don't care to say, how much did you pay for the terrific 300mm f4? Never onwed the lens because at the time i absolutely needed the extra stop at the time, but with the ISO range of the recent DSLR it's now longer a problem (my requirements are quite different, too) and several people like yourself lately reported great results with the lens, again for terrific value.

    one of the good things hanging around celebrities with a camera (and authorization): you never know when some shots might turn out as valuable(!) keepers. OTOH it means you basically have to keep all shots from all sessions, guess in your case it tranlates into stacks of TBs...

But, it's so fast that it's up to the eye, shoot, and down (have to be careful not to hit anybody!). Thanks for looking. Cheers.

    Nice semi-stealth series.

    Btw did you try a vertical crop on #3 & 4 ? It seems to work extremely well...

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Corlan,
    I paid around $570 for the 300 here in Bangkok. Used lenses are not cheap here due to high demand, but mine is in very good shape.

    I never considered the 80-200 AF D. When I bought the AF-S three years ago, it was on impulse (I was actually going to spend my money on a 300mm f/4 that day). I am considering the AF D (new) or another AF-S (used) as backup though. The AF D is smaller and lighter enough to co-exist with its bigger brother. I'm looking at a Tokina 50-135mm f/2.8 first though (or the Pentax version on a Pentax body for a light/low-light setup).

    Jorgen: I really like the dynamics in this photo. You can almost feel the turn. Lovely color, light and shadow. Cheers.
