  1. The peer pressure was just to great, combined with the Nikon marketing machine the pressure was just overwhelming so to stop the anxiety I bought one, not an easy feat here in Canada.

    So here are the obligatory snapshots from the fist time I used it

    There cropped and slightly sharpened, of course they have been reprocessed by smugmug when they do the resizing.

    These were iso 100 which being a D70 owner is of interest to me since that is not available on that camera and I don't shoot much high iso anyways since it does degrade the picture quality on any digital camara that I have seen.

    The lens was the Tamron 90 2.8 sp, the metering was spot on something that needed fiddling with on the D70 so I think that is a nice improvement.

    Well back to figuring out how the controls work I was a bit lost at first but its coming quickly, if the camera behaves I might put the 200 f4 micro on it tomorow and give it a better test.:smile:

  4. Great pictures! Love the colours! Is that a "sweet" little parrotlet? Kinda looks like mine!
     
  5. I get the feeling we are all going to like it that you have this camera :^)
     
  6. Yes it is, here name is Chili, she is a Pacific, we also have a Pacific Blue that is not so sweet, well she is sweet to me but not so sweet to others.

    Does yours run the household, it seems to be a Parrotlet trait.

    Thanks.

    Hi Martin, looks great. Congratulations!
     
  9. I have a female Pacific named Xena ( warrior bird! LOL) She has a split personality, very very sweet and then very very bad. She chases the dog, and harrasses my amazon parrot. She loves to lay down to get petted. She is a big attitude in a little body! but we love her!
