    Matt, here are some examples of vignetting in the Nikkor 85/1.4 as I've promised. I used this lens successfully until I bought the D700. I apologize for the blur, but the shots were taken handheld from a moving boat, under rain.

    Mmm, that's strange because I'm seeing them now. OK, I'll post them on my flicker page and then link them here. Sorry for this inconvenience.

    Sorry for the inconvenience to you, my friend! I even tried going directly to the link. Didn't work for me. I'd be interested to know whether other folks are seeing them.

    There they are!! Thank you. I can see the vignette in these for sure. I hadn't noticed it with my D3 and the 85/1.4, so I'll have to do some testing. Were these shot wide open?

    I see your point; the first one at f/1.4, the second at f/2.8 and the third at f/1.8. Thank you for the tip.

    Nope, nothing except the white rectangle with the upper right hand red cross.

    Having said that, Otumay you're right many lenses show some vignetting on FX sensors.
    Is it a problem? Not sure, it's part of their character (see Leica glasses -if i dare, being a mere plebian Nikon user), especially those designed when FX was the only 35mm format.

    It's true though that some works interestingly better in the digital domain on cropped DX/APS-C sensors, and imho it's the case of the 85mm 1.4, or the 105s (DC etc. untill the VR). When the good ol' 50 1.2 just shines on FX. Well, you still have to accept vignetting, but it's a super cool lens when you get the hang of it.

    A perfect complement to the Zeiss 50/2M, thinking about it... i definitely need to get a copy -again


    Edit: apparently links are back in the meantime...

    Anyway, these are not designed for technical shots
    Typical "portrait" distance lens, as wide open as possible.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks Corlan. Actually that outing was intended to shoot candidly in the fish and vegetable market, and the 85/1.4 was very good. But I couldn't help shooting during the boat trip to the market, and under such adverse conditions, its output suffered. I hope to post some shoots from the market very soon.
    Thanks and best regards,
    Osman

    Absolutely love that first one, Steve

    My brother and his family came down from Denmark yesterday. I visited them at their hotel room, which was on the 15th floor with river view. I hadn't seen them in 18 months or so, but the view was nice too. Priorities, priorities... we had a great dinner after sunset though

    Thanks Alex and others. Getting all those boats lined up was hard work Luckily for me, my kind brother supplied me with beer while we waited

    Just to give you an idea of the size of that cat, here's one with the owner as well, after a long struggle getting the animal airborne.

    Thanks everyone!

    What happened next was the fellow who was about to go down saved it!

    Believe it or not, this was with my back up, a D200 with a 28-70, shutter priority at 1250, I think. I may have had to back it off to 1000 by that point in the day.

    Great forum with amazing talent here. Hoping to learn a lot and share a lot!

    That's a big one.
    So you had to apply your portraiture rules by shooting it "from under" out of respect. Kidding aside, this kites thing sounds like fun.

    The sunset is gorgeous!

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Winter's here now but working on last month files it's obvious that November's weather has been spectacular to say the least.

    Reading the -enlightening- discussion this week between Jorgen and Lloyd on portrait angles made me look into photos from the "down the canal" series. Here's a couple to post here, it's been quite some time that i did not shoot candids, so feel free to comment, including PP -skin's thick, don't hesitate to shoot

    Among this small group of fishermen, the man in focus here was the man of the hour, catching more fish than everyone else, and always helpful...

    As I've promised a few days ago, I wish to post a few images taken with D700 + 85/1.4, this time with no vignetting. Raw conversion was done by CaptureOne, TIFF to jpeg by CS4. You can find more on my Flickr page.

    Osman, the seagulls are extremely smooth, in both sense.
    Anything special post-processing wise on this one?

    Big difference here, Osman. I really like that shot of the gulls.

    Mimi and I went on a photo walk with some local photogs to see the Christmas lights at Temple Square in Salt Lake City. They were expecting about 60 people, over 300 showed up!
