  • Bought mine as a refurb for $650.  You can get them as refurbs off NikonUSA.com for about $700.  I'd go for it.  I like it, my only criticism is that it is so tack sharp at F/5.6, you don't want ...
  • Easily the best lens I have ever purchased.  Mine rarely ever comes off my D810.  Lightweight, and always sharp as a tack.  Outstanding glass for sure. I agree, everyone should have one whether ...
  • I just bought one refurb off NikonUSA.com and I have to agree, this lens hasn't come off my D810 since it arrived.  I liked my 50mm F/1.8G, my 24-120 F/4G--those are nice, but this 85mm F/1.8 ...
  • Hartford, CT from the Charter Oak bridge. Nikon D7100 @ ISO 100, 1/400 sec shutter--HANDHELD. Imagine if this was tripod mounted? (View full screen and look at the lettering on the buildings and ...
  • I finally bought a Nikon D810, and guess what?  My Nikon D7100 paired with my Nikon 17-55 F/2.8 is just as good.  When the lights are low, the D810 shows its strengths, but assuming plenty of ...
  • I relied on a Tamron 17-50 F/2.8 for years with my D7000 and then D7100.  Nice lens, but sometimes it wasn't.  I bought a used Nikon 17-55 F/2.8 (never ever consider new!  Plenty of excellent used ...
  • Because of the mass move to full frame cameras, there are plenty of used Nikon 17-55 F/2.8 lenses on the market. I bought my top shelf condition model used for $800, and I noticed they've come ...
  • I enjoyed working with this lens on my D70s, D7000 and D7100, but there were times when I'd get bad results, especially on the corners.  Drove me nuts!  I now own a Nikon 17-55 F/2.8 and I am in ...
  • Wikipedia?  Hey, I was there, man.  And I could tell just by looking at it... ;-) Actually, I found a graphic somewhere on the web that compared the respective heights.  I'll have to see if I can ...
  • Replied in De Gaulle....
    OK, you all asked for it, next week I take my children to see Barney, the purple dinosaur, and I am posting those pictures here :-P "I love you, you love me, we're good friends like friends should ...
  • Outstanding work! I moved from LA 8 years ago.  Your pictures make me home sick.
  • The BMW my handle refers to is my 2000 BMW R1100RT motorcycle. Pure sweetness on two wheels. It was my motorcycle travels around the country, particularly my trips to Yosemite and Death Valley,...

  • David Nall : thank you for your revision. I think I'll revisit the raw file in Lightroom and make your change a permanent thing. I took this picture using my Nikon D810 raw uncompressed, so the ...
  • Great article and very important perspective. Photographers often say, "it's not the tool, it's the photographer", then we turn around and mortgage our future on the latest and the greatest. I...

  • Enjoyed a nice weekend in NYC and finally visited Ground Zero.  I consider this place to be "hallowed ground"; many of humanity's best and most courageous was sacrificed that day in service to ...
  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    Thanks to my wife, I now own a D810; Merry Christmas! I came from a D7100. Just spent the weekend in NYC, midtown Manhattan. Friday was perfect, but Saturday and Sunday it rained non-stop. The...

  • I admire what this man does for a living for sure, but I definitely do not want his job! I'll watch the video, thank you :-)

  • Outstanding video. Outstanding work on the part of this Thunderbirds photographer. Thank you sir for the passion you bring to the service you provide. It's people like you that make my heart...

  • Glad to see this thread.  I have been wondering about the D9300 as well; a few months ago I got pumped over the idea and then nothing but silence.  In fact, it was anticipated that the camera ...
