Does using D700 auto-ISO make me a weenie?
Aug 16, 2008

D700 auto-ISO seems to me to be really useful. I just got back from a field trip where there were highly variable lighting conditions, no tripod, and not a lot of time to set up for the shot. Longest FL was 180mm, shortest 17mm. I just shot on aperture priority, set min shutter for 1/250, max ISO to 3200 (never hit it). I could just worry about composition, focus, DOF and exposure compensation. Seemed to work nicely.

Life is too short for slow glass.
