About me:

Photography started as a hobby back in 1985 (dad gave me my first SLR camera), but got neglected a bit between 2000-2006 (mostly happy snapping). In late 2007 decided to get back into it and also went digital. Now its about learning how to use the digital stuff and re-learning stuff I have forgotten.

  • For low light photography, the update AF is FAR from a gimmik. My D600 could hardly match my D700 in low light much less have a chance against the D750 I suspect. Certainly more unobtrusive than my...

  • As I used my D700 mostly in low light situations, the 1/8000th speed never really mattered.

    If I truly need high shutter rate of 1/8000 I will pull out the D4 again (or even the D7100, or old...

  • I think this is a very good replacement of the D700. I have a D7100 for wildlife, but my D4 really is a bit cumbersome for band photography in small to medium venues. The D750 is more than likely...

  • Finally a proper D700 replacement. Unlike the 'lovely dials but horrible image sensor/AF mismatch' of the Df.

    This is looking much better.

    You obviously dont use your camera in low enough light, my D600 struggles to AF in low light situations my D4 has no problems in, and so the Df sensor and its AF are mismatched in my opinion.

    I...

    Wow you must be thick, why are you comparing the D3s to the D700.....

    D3s came out after the D700!!!! The correct comparison is D700 to D3, since the D700 came out after the D3 (not D3s), just as...

    Yup. nice low light sensor mismatched with AF system that cant keep up in low light. FF choice is D4 for low light/sports or D610/D800 for rest, leaving Df for the retro and manual focus fans.

    All...

    And I specifically noted the D3s came out after the D700 so how could the D700 have the same AF or sensor for that matter....

    As the Df has borrowed the D600/610 AF, I think we have a pretty good...

    Rather fast nikon glass with better AF for low light in small venues, than manual focusing a zeiss lens. Get more keepers that way!

    D700-2008 and D3s-2009, would be hard to retro fit it back to...

  • Commented on Nikon Df preview

    I think the noise for a proper D700 replacement is partly what this camera is supposed to be about, that and a retro appeal, but I dont think Nikon got the formula quite right for most D700 users....

  • Commented on Nikon Df preview

    Manually focusing a live band in low light, not as easy as it sounds, and when you are looking for a good shot in a live performance, getting more keepers is the key to improving your chances of a...

    YESSSSSSS, they put in the awesome low light 16MP sensor but not an AF that can keep up with it in low light....

    I havent tried the Df but I do have a D4 and a D600. I have used both for band...
