These were all captured with a D2H....I'm pretty darned happy with them as they printed beautifully to 13" x 19"....

For you folks lamenting that you need an X...DON"T!. If you're not printing huge or doing a ton of cropping, you can absolutely produce stunning images with the H.

Jim,

What a great testimonial for the D2H. Wonderful pictures!

Now have to ask which lens --I'm guessing the 200-400.

Thanks for these,

Gaye

Multiple Responses:

A) Gaye.....yes...200-400

B) Harris...get the longer glass. I can't fathom that for your shooting the D2X would buy you anything other than a slower fps in full mode :) You know as well as I do that the H can produce spectacular images.

C) Frank.....I am currently negotiating either a sale or a straight up trade with my 200-400. I'll end up with either an AFSI or II by he end of the week hopefully.

Would you have a preferences over the I or the II?????

Jim,


According to Ron, the II is lighter. That would be important to me assuming that there is not a big $$ difference.

I can't believe that you are getting rid of your 200-400VR, after all of the spectacular images that you've gotten with it. I can however, relate to wanting the 500 f4. 8)

Hi Frank

Don't make me cry...the 200-400 is GONE.

I have seen a substantial difference in price between the AFSI and II versions used.

I found a mint used AFSII, but the damn thing is light gray and black (sort of canon colored) AND it's gray market to boot. From what I understand.....besides being ugly, I wouldn't be able to get it fixed if need be?????

Nikon USA won't touch a gray market Nikkor lens, but you could still get it repaired (for a price) at one of
Nikon's independent authorized repair centers. Here's a link to a list of them. There's one in Boston :) :wink: :

Man you are one quick moving dude.... 8) I love my 300 2.8, but I would really love to get my hands on a 200-400VR.

Now that you've sent yours away, how about updating your equipment list in your sig. :wink:

Good luck on the 500 f4. Looks like you have several good leads.
