I took the old *not_working_anymore* Fuji S2 out of the draw, put an old Nikkor 105 f/2.5 AIS on it and shot again some physalis, just to see the difference with the D70 images... Although the S2 now only works with MANUAL lenses (and after each shot, i get an ERR message, so i have to put the camera OFF and re-start it), there is a HELL of a difference with the D70 in term of overall colors, contrast and rendition "OUT OF THE BOX" ! Of course, with some careful PS work, i can -now- get about the same quality out of the D70, but it needs spending more time than i used to with the S2 ! Since the Nikkor 105 f/2.5 is NOT a macro lens, i had to shoot at it's minimum distance, wich is 1 meter (3 feet), so the following pic is a 50% crop (reduced for Web use) of the whole frame... but WHAT A SHARPNESS !!! ...i have to try this lens on the D70, maybe it will BEAT my old Tamron SP90 ?!? S2 + Nikkor 105 f/2.5 - 1:125 @ f/11 with flashes - ISO 200 - RAW Cheers, J-P.
