psandham: XP Pro; SP3; IE8 = STILL no go...

No good - all I get is a red X with the word Gravatar written next to it. Then when I save it and then post a message it goes to the red X with my name as you see now. The file is 80x80, but I've tried other sizes with no success. Advice?

On Interview: Tetsuya Yamamoto of Nikon article (208 comments in total)

psandham: The J1/V1 series is a great start for Nikon. I'm sure improvements will follow as discussed in this article. I didn't hear Mr. Yamamoto explain how Nikon will get the scratched zoom lens used by DPReview in their review of the FT-1 adapter to perform better, but we can always hope...

"generally" is the operative word in your reply. I just found it humorous, albeit sad, that DPReview would use an outdated, scratched lens (which was a garbage lens new) as the testing lens for a review of the 1 series FT-1 adapters. I expected better, but I'm learning that if it doesn't say "Canon" the review will be sub-par. Spoken as a true, 45+ years Nikon fan-boy.

On Just Posted: Nikon 1 V1 and J1 review article (442 comments in total)

Worthless information. Using the FT-1 with a 20-year-old 50mm and a "scratched" 24-120 (which was a garbage lens when it was new) is enough to make me not read, nor value, this review. Why in h#ll would ANYONE test a camera with these lenses and expect to be taken seriously? And yes, I'm a Nikon user (in case you couldn't tell). I do, however, use an LX5!

On Nikon launches AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 G article (136 comments in total)
In reply to:

Herman Roote: Nice lens for the price, I thinks it's too long for indoor portrait shooting, unless you have a large studio.

I'm only speaking for the DX users like myself, I find the 50mm 1.8 in plenty long enough.

It will be interesting to see if the bokeh does approach the 1.4 - I have my doubts. Can't see how 7 blades approaches the look of 9 blades (never has at any other focal length).

This just validates why I left Adobe around the CS3 version - I've never looked back...

In reply to:

tilariths: It seems that m43 and Nex system was designed by DLSR people.

Heck, Olympus pretty much abandoned DLSR market (and their own excellent glass to an extend it is slighly less usable on m43).

Nikon, apparently, used their compact people to design it. With huge pushback from DLSR folks not to step on their turf.

Fail.

Pass - here's why if will succeed:

psandham: Just another step toward being able to use my fine Nikon glass for video.

The bodies you listed are much, much larger than this series. I really don't want anything the size of my D700 or D300 for video.

psandham: So now I can put my 70-200 f/2.8 on a pink body and get into all of those sports and concert events!

They won't let me bring in my D700 or 300, not dven my F5! I'm pretty sure I can get by them with a metallic blue one, though!

EvanZ - you're right about the LX5 which is why I'm really disappointed about the latest Nikon releases. I just don't get a slow 28mm lens on something new...
