More D800 shots
Apr 28, 2012

Going through my lenses on the D800 with some familiar subject matter to gauge how well the D800 and the lenses fare compared to my other previous cameras. As you would imagine, the resolution is freaky good, but the over all IQ is also freaky good as is the DR. I think the best approach is to try to protect the highlights and bring up the shadows.

Putting the 14-24 through it's paces, I am starting to fall in love with this lens on the D800. I have always liked the 14-24, but was more of a fan of the 16-35 f4 VR due to it's zoom range, VR, able to take filters, less issue with flare, but the 14-24 really does have a superb look to the IQ. It seems to have such intense colours that much of the time you don't require a polariser.
