  1. I love photographing late in the day when the last tinges of sunlight start to fade.

    Having a new camera and lens, yes, my 24-70 arrived late this afternoon too.
    No excuses not to dig in!

    Boy, that 24-700 is a beauty. It's the only lens I have where I find myself wanting to stare at the glass!

    D700 with 24-70mm f/2.8

    Here's another done with the D700 and 70-200VR done yesterday.
  2. I had the opportunity yesterday of working with that combo (D700 and 24-70 f2.8) and till now I have not seen better results.
    The D700 is a great tool and the lens in my opinion is sharper than the Canon counterpart.
    I saw wedding photographs shot with this set and I could not believe my eyes.
    Congratulations on your new tools and you certainly have a most beautiful gallery.

  3. Virginia, I think the 24-70 fits in my hands better than the Beast (and I don't have particularly small hands).
    Good start.

    BTW - I like that typo
    That would be some lens :biggrin:

  4. exactly. was just wishing for something like that again yesterday. 1.4 with VR as well and 77mm filters

    Boy, that 24-700 is a beauty. wish it wasn't a typo - what a lens that would be. Nice shots, well done

  6. nice shots
    i love the 24-70
    it's such a wonderful lens

    congrats to you
    can't wait to see many more images
  7. Many thanks, William.
    I knew when I started using a full frame camera that the right lenses were a must.

    Ah, gees, would catch that!
    The combo of the D700 and 24-70 is a bit heavier than I thought it would be.

    That certainly would be an incredible combination!

    Thanks, Stew
    We can dream, can't we!

    Thanks, Greg.
    BTW, I loved your post showing the respective sizes of the 70-200, 300 and 200-400.

  8. I'm as green as the image in your shot. I've heard so much about the 24-70.
    One day ...
