Well you are certainly getting a lot more out of the CP5700 than I ever could! Was that automatic focus? Guess it had to be, as the manual focus on the 5700 is a joke. I missed an awful lot of shots with my 5700 because it wouldn't focus properly.
Congratulations, great job. I'll swap you another 5700 for the D2x :lol:
#2 does have a thinner DOF and less sharpened look, especially around the details in the middle. But the coolpix does a great job with close-ups. My old 950 does well with that too, but Pa says, focusing is a pain!
Chris i am still trying to find the right adjustment in the D2X to reach the quality of picture i can obtain with the CP5700. As for those old coolpix camera i have seen marvelous pictures coming out of those.
BTW - nice shot on #1.
This shows that lust apart, good old and faithful gear serves the photographer's best intentions.
I had a CP5700 for some time and sold it too fast. I missed the portability and the macro function. That's one reason why I bought a CP8800. I even miiss the CP4500 I had before - for candids.
