    first of all -> many thanks to all of u that "stood in there with me":Love:

    this really is the camera i've always wanted (course a little we tiny fx range-finder with a handful of fast pancake lens that shoots in the dark -3 would prolly get me salivating, lol).

    ok, i don't have a clue what i'm doing with this lovely gizmo and i'm already totally and utterly -> BLOWN AWAY!!!

    50 1.4 @1.4, the guy that sold me this fine gizmo (i missed his left eye a touch, user error, ok? i was a bit excited!!!)

    85 1.4 @1.4, a rose from my neighbor's garden

    2900104741_81e16f90e0_o.

    85 1.4 @1.4, the obligatory "dumb" high iso shot. at least it's not the cat..lol
    straight from the camera, just re-sized, NO pp!
    1/125's, 6400iso

    I love mine and the combo with a dx means you have lots of focal lenghts to choose from. Ain't digital fun!!!!
    Enjoy the new toy, well in your hands probably a tool, in mine a toy.
     
  13. Aaargh! You are killing me here. I have the 50 1.4 and the 85mm 1.4 but my new D700 is a mere 170 miles away or somewhere in transit. Hopefully tomorrow.

    Does anything else make you feel like a 6 year old at Christmas again more than new Nikon gear?

    Enjoy.
     
  14. Congrats, Nute. I can't wait to see what you can do with full frame! :smile: I'll admit I'm a little bit jealous... mine's still some months away at best!
     
  15. Congrats on the new body, Nute. Now get to work. I'm expecting you to elevate your game to new heights.
