A few Macros from my new D800
May 14, 2012

Hi all. Only got my D800 on Thursday last week so I've only had the weekend to play.

Took these about an hour ago, and my first real test of the D800. Most were at ISO 800, as they were all handheld with my trusty Sigma 180mm F3.5 macro Lens. Striaght away the first thing I noticed was the focussing speed of the sigma. Whilst not quite a dog, it was never a particularly fast focussing lens, but on the D800 it's a revelation. I shot in continuous AF (9 points) to compensate for me swaying in and out, and it hit focus almost 80% of the time (vs about 70% with my D3 and about 50% with my D7000).

These were all shot in FX mode (full 36mp) and then downsized for web viewing, with just a touch of PS sharpening. Other than that, striaght out of camera. Hmmm... think i'll keep it :smile:

Thanks for looking.
Lets make pictures, not war........
