    Feelings on Nikon 16-80mm f/2.8-4

    Would be happier with fixed 2.8 though with VR.

    Feelings on Nikon 16-80mm f/2.8-4

    Thanks... just picked up a D500... and may get a DX walk around lens. Seems like this is the one to get .

    Nikon Df: I may be in love

    Here's one from today... with the 58G @1.4. It seems like the DF was made for the lens. Perfect balance. By the way... did you get the silver or black color for the DF?? I got a silver, but now looking for a black one :)

    Nikon Df: I may be in love

    Funny that you posted this... I also just got a DF... much for the same reasons that you did. Basically, I just wanted to try it. Smaller size, the manual dials, overall body style and great high ISO were the driving forces. I got a great deal on a barely used kit. I just got it yesterday...

    Tour of Calfornia Pro Cycling Race

    These pics are awesome!! I'm an avid cyclist... so I totally get it :) Must be awesome hanging at the race and with the teams. I DVR'd both the TOC and the Giro... and watched both. The Dauphine is on this week... Keep up the great work.

    Nikkor 24-70/2.8E: "Disappointing" per DxO Mark

    Just out of curiosity... how did you know it de-centered?? Don't get me wrong... I think it's overpriced for sure, but it will be most used lens for sure.

    Nikon 24-70vr

    I think the lens is so good... Just check this out... nothing special in terms of subject...ISO 100, 50mm F2.8, 1/50th. Cropped a bit...

    Nikon 24-70vr

    It is VERY BIG!!! It reminds of the old version... but not as skinny. The size and price are clearly the drawbacks... but it is my most used range. In the end... the VR and fast AF were the deciding factors for me. If it was a 24-105 or 24-120 @ 2.8 I would be in heaven, but with the D810 I can...

    Nikon 24-70vr

    If you don't need VR.... I see no reason to upgrade. I am very happy with the new lens.

    I love it... I sold my Siggy 24-105.. I will sacrifice 71-105 for F2.8.

    Nikon 24-70vr

    I would think that this lens offers the best and fastest AF of any Nikon to date... the old 24-70 was extremely fast, and the new one is supposed to even faster. According to Steve Perry (link above)... the sharpness in the corners and edges are even better than the old one. I'm not sure if...

    Nikon 24-70vr

    Thanks... I like the lens a lot. The price and size are tough to swallow though. I think if you use the 24-70 range a lot like most do... it is the best of the best. VR is a GREAT addition, and enough reason for me to upgrade.

    Nikon 24-70vr

    Couldn't hold off any longer :) Both shots wide open. Second one was at 1/40th, ISO 1000, 45mm. Both shots cropped about 30%. BTW... It's GIGANTIC for a standard zoom.

    Showcase Nikon 58mm f/1.2 Noct

    I have had a bunch of exotic manual focus glass over the years... I still have a lot of it. I actually got into photography through the collectibles... Sale from 2008... (pics shot with Coolpix 990) and another RARE BIRD... 2008 as well.

    Bought one... got it today. Stellar reviews from all sources. 15-30, 2.8 and VR!! I sold my Nikon 14-24... and a few shots with it... both @ 2.8. Roughly 20mm on both. First one was at ISO 640, 1/25th. Second one was cropped a bit.

    Thanks Arthur... the D810 really allows for a lot of latitude in cropping.
