Me and everyone I work worth never chimp to check exposure or color.

This has to answered again for everyone new to the thread. 

yes you can blow a channel out regardless of format. Especially the red channel. That's why you use the LCD or tethered view. without the review you'd be guessing. The infos right there at the press of a button or two and it would show you what channel blew. 

 

RAW is a format. It holds everything the sensor captured.  If WB was set incorrectly it should have been apparent on the review whether LCD or tethered while checking exposure and comp. Part of checking exposure means identifying problems revealed to a photographer via review.like channel blow out. The LCD or tether would tell the photographer of any underlying problems like aforementioned. but if it were exposed correctly and shot in RAW you could simply reset WB and presto.  The RAW format has all the data to pull from to render a perfectly white balanced photo. Todays LR 4 has amazing highlight recovery but it can only fix so much. This should detail why checking LCD info is so important. a tether isn't at all necessary but can be very useful in a studio. It's just a more sophisticated form of chimping.

 

But if for example a jpeg is shot with  Daylight WB in Tungsten (exaggerating the orange/red) and the red blows the image is wasted.  the blown red data is non existent. The camera would have processed it out. This would never happen in any of the studios I've worked for because I know how to check exposure by simply using the LCD of the cam.

 

  If you have PS or LR you can watch the blowout occur with red subjects easily as you slide the WB slider. Turn the highlight alert feature on in the RAW converter at the right corner of the histogram. then simply slide the WB slider.

Nikon D3200. Zeiss 100mm macro cropped into about 25% of the frame. prolly about 6 mp from the 24.

I picked up a mint 16-85MM for my walk around lens today locally for 350.00 I love it already and will use this for mostly walk around hand held shots. Nice lens for the d7000

I took some great shots last night in the house with it and it as you say very sharp and I couldn't be more happy with the purchase so far and the price was right,

I'm looking at picking up a 24mm 2.8D.  Is there any reason I should go with the 35mm 2.0 instead?  For another $2-300 I could get the 28mm 1.8G

 

The Sigma 35mm 1.4 is out of my reach for now.

I think the 28/1.8G is the best of those that you are considering. It is fast, sharp and relatively inexpensive. The other two are much older designs and you'd need to have a body that supports screw-drive AF (if you care about AF.)

the 28 is very nice and super sharp but focal length is devoid of the converging distortion that makes wide angle photography wide angle photography. the 24 is an outstanding performer. the 35 f2 is another old optic that performs well. more of a wide normal lens. if you dont have any wides I'd rec the 24. thats where wide angle photography begins. the 28 and 35 although considered wide doesn't exhibit the distortion that draws the viewer

fun topic, i came here to just see what you guys are talking about since i shoot Nikons and wow, its like a mini war in here! I laugh at more then a few comments ive read tho, do u guys really shoot professionally? Film is harder to shoot then digital? fx is better then dx? chimping is for beginners only? even sunny 16 rule? with i had more time so I could start from page 1 tho...

 

oh and im not trying to flame, its just i really found it fun in here. And yes, I do shoot professionally a lot longer then I should lol
