    Congrats!!! I'm glad to see them starting to trickle into circulation. Nothing happening in the States at the moment. I guess it will be another week or so.

    Thank you all, a couple of pics, nothing interesting but i know you wanna see them

    looks nice on a D3s



    and some real life pics of the Ferrari Circle, all hand held and the Exif should be intact, no pp and the full res at my Pbase

    1/8000s f/1.4 at 24.0mm iso200

    1/8000s f/2.0 at 24.0mm iso200

    1/8000s f/2.8 at 24.0mm iso200

    1/4000s f/4.0 at 24.0mm iso200

    1/1000s f/8.0 at 24.0mm iso200

    These are just snaps i took while heading to office, ill have the full res up in 10 mins or so

    my impression!! Its a killer of a lens and i am sure that at the right hands this little gem will make wounders

  8. Congrats. Keep the pics coming, please. :smile:
  9. Why such a difference of light between the 3 pics ?

  10. you mean at f/2.8 of course - otherwise no comparison!!! lol
  11. The max shutter speed of the d3s is 1/8000, so by shooting wide open in bright sunlight, the camera had no choice but to overexpose. Check out the exif data for each of Sarheat's exposures.

    f/1.4 @ 1/8000 iso200 (overexposed by 2 stops)
    f/2.0 @ 1/8000 iso200 (overexposed by 1 stop)
    f/2.8 @ 1/8000 iso200 (finally in range, so correct exposure)
    f/4.0 @ 1/4000 iso200
    Note: he skipped f/5.6, but it would have been at 1/2000 iso200
    f/8.0 @ 1/1000 iso200

    The Uncle with the answers, thanks Frank, we have a lot of sun down here

    Did some minimum focus tests on it and man even a 5cm object behind the main focus point is gone

    ill post some more tonight hopefully

    Any particular tests i should do for you guys? i mean beside the one against the 14-24 and 24-70

  14. Hi Frank !

    I've tried IExif, Exif Viewer, FxIf and PhotoMe (on Firefox 3.6) and none of them find any Exif datas in the images... that's why I asked ! ...in any case, I couldn't imagine that the first 2 pics had been overexposed BY THE CAMERA :wink:

    Which Exif reader do you use, btw ? ...and on which program, Firefox or Windows Explorer ?

  15. I just followed the link to Sarheat's pbase gallery, where exif data was available for all of the pictures.

    Looking forward to seeing the love!
  17. Haaaa ! SMART !

  18. I'm afraid that the 24/1.4 may not be very impressive in bright, contrasty conditions, Sarheat, but that's true of most of Nikon's ultra fast lenses. Photozone upset a lot of people by rating the legendary 85/1.4 poorly based on shooting it wide open in bright sunlight. You'll need to shoot your 24/1.4 after the sun goes down to fully appreciate its beauty.
  19. Maybe some night photography? Thanks in advance! :wink:
