    It seems as if it's suffering from better AF performance! :eek: 

    Maybe not. Could just be a placebo effect kind of thing. I like the shot anyways.

    Francis,
    Nice image.
    I have been wondering whether the firmware update was worth the bother. Do you really think the firmware improved your AF?
     
  3. Cool--nice job capturing the range of greens and browns and the contrasts!

    I tend to think firmware upgrades do more harm than good. They scare me! I am that way.

    Your image looks great!

    I feel as if it has. Though, I haven't performed any proper tests. It appears to not hunt as much.

    Yeah, after doing a lot of shooting over this weekend, I feel that it truly has improved as well.


    Thank you!:smile:
     
  15. Great image....pin sharp and good composition.
    As for auto-focus, focus should be the same.....it's AF speed that may improve. The D3 owners are reporting better AF speed with the new firmware.

    Great job Francis :)  Was that a handheld shot? The sharpness is amazing!

    Yes, Sir, it sure was. Handheld while crouched down facing upwards. I am sure I looked really awkward to people passing by :wink:
