    I shot a session today with the beast on 95% of the time. It's just incredible.

    Here is one that I really liked

    This picture is actually out of focus since she was moving, but... it still worked out with some sharpening.

    And here's the one from the 85mm (my pseudo beast)

    but I have about 150 more :biggrin:

  2. nice shot, Linda
    once you use GREAT GLASS.... it's hard to shoot with anything less

    combined with YOUR SKILL.... a killer combination

    Thank you Greg. Of course it doesn't look as good on the web as on my HD, but I'm very impressed by the lens. Worth every penny.

    You are right, great glass is addictive. I will post some more from this session when I'm done. Too many keepers.
     
  4. VERY nice Linda. Great comp. and colours!
    I love my Beast too! It stays on one body and gets most of work!

    Sometimes, I think I do too! But liked it better after adding Fine Tune +10 in my D300.
     
  11. hmmmm
    an interesting point
    i better re-visit this issue on my D3
    thanks for the suggestion

    You're welcome. I did a very un-scientific test. In my yard I have a wooden chair and it has nails on it, in a row. So I put the chair so the nails were lined up and I aimed at one of the nails. My focus were only consistent at around +10 fine tune.

    same goes the 2 ring version of 80-200
     
  15. why is that?
    the 24-70 is a very solid lens
     
  16. sounds great to me
    i have yet to fine-tune any of my lenses to the D3...
    laziness or stupidity on my part... i'm not sure :rolleyes: 
     
  17. maybe you just don't need to? just a thought:wink:
     
  18. i truly think that you are right
    i'll have to take a more critical look and see

    thanks for your thought
     
  19. Real nice shots Linda. Cute girl.
