  1. Why Not a Blog Y5D170

    Summer is flying, as perhaps you can notice, I am too busy enjoying summer and taking pictures, that 46 days or so passed since my last blog.

    On the equipment front, I really want to give a shout out to the super 70-210 F4,, what a wonderful lens, super sharp at a reasonable price, and the right weight, not some heavy tank of a lens,

  2. Why Not A Blog Y5D124

    I can tell I am getting busy as the weather gets nicer, as lots of days passed since my last post.

    so,,, I just had to try one of those 12 mm 2.8 SamYang lens - Korean.. prime, around 340 dollars which for what it is, is quite the deal.

    so,,does it take a decent picture? Where can I get a decent valued NEW Nikon D700 or D300 online?-dsc_2936-skate-board-bw-smaller.jpgWhere can I get a decent valued NEW Nikon D700 or D300 online?-dsc_2936-skate-board-bw-smaller.jpg

    I gave the Nikkor 70--200 a bit more of a test at an Ultimate Frisbee game,, which required focus tracking and well fast focusing, so,, how did it do?

    I think this is plenty sharp, this was taken with my Nikon DF,,,

    so,, now a month with the DF and my love for Nikon is back! course,

    I grabbed a quick shot of the cat, using the New ,, well used Nikkor 70-200 F4 lens. nice that the lens lets you get up fairly
    close, so,, an excellent portrait lens, and quite sharp. Totally no regrets on getting this lens. I feel my Nikkor set became
    more complete.

    70-200 F4 N showed up,, sweet lens, I like that all internal zoom/focus, so a bit long, but no telescoping tubes during zoom or focus, so less chance
    of dust to get in! Dust being the evil to digital.

    just a very quick grab,, comparison to the 80-200 2.8 this is super cropped on the focal point, and the top is the new 70-200 F4,

    just locked in a used nikkor 70-200 F4 VR,, It was between the F4 used or a older used 2.8,, but I really got swayed with the lighter weight and
    awesome reviews. I tried out one at my local shop, and zoomed in on some writings, sharp sharp,

    We are really getting spoiled in sharpness, gone are the days that one has to tolerate less

    I used the camera for a photo shoot yesterday in an urban setting. First, its amazing how many people recognize the camera. It appears among photographers, many are aware and were very interested in seeing one. Next, it is a pleasure to use, and I am beginning to appreciate the quality of this sensor. I have noticed a reduced work flow time per photo,

    5 days,, onto the Nikon DF,, and how is it holding up in impression, very fine, I used it at a sporting event and even with
    the slower Auto Focus and such, I found it up to the task. I took a pile of action shots, using my Nikkor 300 F4 lens, on
    spot focus,,

    The shots in post edit, barely needed any tweaking besides the

    Yippee, the DF showed up,, perhaps the most panned SLR that Nikon released, and... hah,, I love it!

    The one issue that kept me away,,, was size,, and yes, it still feels bloated, especially when I put next to my
    trusty F3, but when I place it next to my D800,, it is a shrink, and compared to what a D4 or D5, its tiny.

    I have been bouncing back and forth on the Nikon DF, such potential, such failures, one can read the almost countless reviews, and such,, and
    get the opinions,

    Up front, what I don't like,, the still too large of a body,, the less high end focusing system, kinda sad that they did not at least put the D800 level
    Auto Focus
