Just wanted to let you know that I'm noticing about half of your photos in the last two pages are not very sharp.  You might want to use a faster shutter speed or make sure your autofocus is working properly.

Beware of the Poison Dart Ladybug.  This is my first real macro shot.  Used an 85mm lens with Raynox DCR-250 adapter.  Now I know why most macro is done with a tripod.. It took me a while to get a sharp shot -- I had to tippy toe because this little guy was in a lamp trying to get away from my 2 cats!  used F11, but I think I could have stopped down even more.

Hyogen: nice shots. Like all of them. Re: the first shot with the couple on the stairs. The lower portion of frame is kinda dark and scary for eng shots? . I love most of the design as a whole but maybe what if you showed more "above" them. Less of the scary more of the bright and sunny?

 

I didn't see your comment till now!  I appreciate the feedback.  I actually darkened the shadows on this for the contrast, but I'll keep the scariness in mind!

Nikon 500 f4 w/ D800
post #5528 of 5760

Look what just came in! Almost same diameter as 85 1.4 but just about an inch shorter. Close focusing is about 2 feet.

OMG, you brought that. I'm coming by your place soon.

Hmm gotta have a shootout with the new Nikkor 58mm and this new Zeiss Otus 55 1.4.
The new Zeiss is sharp corner to corner wide open with a touch of fall off. It is absolutely ridiculously sharp stopped down to f4. Even on a D800 I feel it out performs the 36 mp sensor.

You bought this $4000 Zeiss??!  

How fast and accurate are you able to manually focus this lens wide open with modern DSLR focus screen?

Any fast aperture lens is easier to focus than a slower lens as depth of field is visible through viewfinder. That being said my eyes are starting to get a bit older and I'm not as fast as I used to be. I have to use the viewfinder focus confirmation to check in difficult situations. The lens is huge. Like bigger than a nikkor 24-70. But I have never seen a lens this good before. Never. The color rendition is accurate with good contrast. But it's sharpness is something to witness.

just do it,The D3 will essentially relieve the user from having to have such an exacting, tiny, dense DX imager that could be quite susceptible to motion, lens issues, etc. I have found the D200 to be more forgiving in that way, but then again, I was fortunate to get a couple of really great lenses.thanks
