    For landscapes and portraits,

    I love my d300 for portraits. I use the 28-70 2.8 nikkor and the combo rocks. Just right for how I see best. I use a sb-800 for fill on a tripod and very fast and easy to get great stuff.

    D700 - Should I upgrade from my D300?

    The d300 d700 combo is great. Contols very close to the same and a extra lens set. I carry both bodies and 3 to 4 lenses and get some amazing coverage. A tele with the d300 is great for extra reach, and my 28-70 is a killer portait lens on the d300. Wide stuff is wonderful on the d700 as is high...

    The best camera.....

    I have optical on my nikons and this fits in my shirt so I have it all the time. I have optical on the older casio 750 I have and seldom used it. They are often not too accurate on these cameras. Plus the screen is much improved.

    The best camera.....

    S90 stuff, great camera, 800 is pretty good for 13*19 prints after that depends. Love the 28 end and good macro. BW is good I just shoot BW and tweak. These are all from jpg not raw so raw may be better.

    The best camera.....

    I have been using a casio z-750 and liked it alot. I just picked up a canon s90 and so far it is a great camera. Will try to post a few pics. Loved the casio for BW mode and ease to get to that mode. Canon is not as good at that but better noise higher iso faster lens. The cnon seems to be the...

    Macro... which way to start

    Do not overlook used nikon 60mm lenses and 105 manuals or af they are all sharp and manual focus is very usable with macro. I have many macros and a 60mm af is my small travel kit lens. It must be of a size to fit your needs and a focal length you will use. sometimes a longer lens can do a...

    FX and DX: Who shoots both and why?

    I have and shoot both. I tend to use the FF for wide and the DX for real long stuff. My standard travel kit is a 14-24 a 28-70 and a 80-200 afs all 2.8 and a macro usually a 150 sigma with a d300 and a d700. Like having a extra lens kit along. Sometimes the 80-200 stays a nd a 80-400 or a 300 f4...

    D1x worth buying still?

    I would say around 400 if you can find one with the buffer upgrade they are faster by about double on the write speeds and can do sports if one is careful and light is good. Worst feature is bad battery life you need 2 GOOD batteries to shoot for most of a day. If you get one with borderline...

    D1x worth buying still?

    I have done great 16*20 prints from one. Very filmlike to my eye. Chimping is hard as the screen is bad and not as fast as some newer stuff but quality is very high. We sometime loose site and just count pixels. If you can find one a good shot with it will still be a good shot.

    Tamron 28-75 2.8, is it good?

    I have both. I had the tamron 2.8 first and really liked it. Then I got a great deal on the nikon 2.8. The nikon is sharper2.8 to 5.6 at f8 they are close at f11 the tamron is a bit sharper. This is my copies and there is always variation. If you get a tamron make sure it is somewhere with a...

    Some Objectivity Please: How will IQ improve from D300 to D700?

    If you nail exposure close and print the size you state very little difference. If you have to tweak things in photoshop much it will help. I found lots of the harder to print stuff was just falling out to the printer with the d700. It was at least as much a gain in my eyes as the d200 to d300...

    Question About ISO Performance of D300

    D300 is at least a stop better in my opinion. 1600 is nice to me. around 800 works great on the d80 for me. Just my opinion. 3200 with real good exposure etc is sometime good but 1600 is a no brainer with the d300

    Low light D300 vs D700

    But his lens is so much longer with the 300 so if 1600 will work it may be a better choice. Long fast teles are very expensive. The 700 is better but if you need to get new lenses it is not always wiser.

    180/2.8D or 300/4AF or 300/4AF-S

    300 afs is much better on full frame on a d80 the older 300 would be very close on results. I had both at once and this is from the copies I had. I kept the afs for corner sharpness as I do not need the afs speed which is faster. I have a 180 i hardly use as my 80-200 afs is my workhorse. All...

    How Many Pixels Are You Happy With?

    Around 6 is generally enough for me to do great 16*24 inch prints. I do not crop much.
