24/1.4G London Street (Low Light + Handheld)
Nov 20, 2011

Went for Xmas shopping in London yesterday with my D7K+24G. I hesitated taking it out with me due to its weight (1.5kg!) but felt sorry for not using it much. I ended up shooting most of the time and didn't do much shopping Set my camera on f1.4 with auto ISO's lowest shutter speed ranging from 1/40 to 1/125 depending on lighting conditions. I used 1/40 for very low light situations to spare the ISO.

Acquiring focus lock is an issue without AF lamp assist on. At times, I had to switch it on to achieve focus when lighting is too low. Also, AF accuracy is poor especially in yellow lighting which throws focus to infinity - not happy about this issue of D7K (has been reported by others too).

Below pics were all taken wide open and handheld. Any comments welcome!
