  • This isn't unique to spot metering, this is any metering mode. If the meter is active, it is active. So where you point the camera, that's what it is metering, constantly. I think you've found the ...
  • Primes have lots of pros going for them, but they also have a couple of cons that can outway the pros in some situations. It's a matter of what and how I'm shooting that makes the decisions. F1.4 ...
  • Horshack might be misreading/misinterpreting the results--as in, it's the Tamron's decenteredness cause the differences in right and left sides/corners, not the Nikon's. (Or they both are, in...

  • Interesting results, thank you for posting it!! 3 thoughts: 1) The sunburst stuff--the Nikon one really didn't look good next to the other ones. However, it also didn't have a giant flare-spot...

  • The 17-35 is showing its age, particularly in the corners. I think you would find it not dissimilar to the 16-35 which also has some corner issues. The They both get better with stopping down, but ...
  • I feel like this is some kind of joke.

  • This might be the weakest update I've ever seen. "Oh, weren't impressed by the last one? Well wait till you see what we've added this year..."

  • Replied in No comparison?
    Yeah, I don't get it either. It compares quite nicely. There are other things that may or may not bother the OP: 1) color consistency. This is one thing that I like about shooting all the same ...
  • 1) I wouldn't worry about the VR/no VR in that range, unless your really concerned about video. 2) The 16-35 has some distortion issues. Depending on what you're doing, might or might not be a big ...
  • Thanks

    @fPrime: are you forgetting the Canon 1D3 debacle, that cannon tried to fix, but couldn't. You know, one of the things that, along with the sensor in the D3, drove so many (pro) sports cannon...

    Nikon's AF tech isn't 7 years behind Canon. Sorry, not even close.

    While it's true that Nikon has outstanding sensors as a result of their IP in partnership with Sony's, these modern sensors are all *pretty* good. I'm not saying that one could/should expect more...

  • Feel free to do that. Also, feel free to point me towards a 70mm prime. But I digress. My own experience and every review Ive seen would tell you the 24-70 is probably a little worse at 70, but ...
  • I have to ask, what 70mm do you own? I wasn't aware Nikon made a 70mm lens. Or anybody else, for that matter. Anyway, to the point, if you already have the 70-135 covered, why not just buy the ...
  • Better than fine, it performs considerably better at the longer end of the lens--135mm+. Or what 70mm looks like, since the VR1 is an 80-200. ;-) It all depends on how you use these lenses. But ...
  • IMO there are two downsides to the VR2--cost and focal breathing. The focal breathing to me is a non-issue, I just don't do that much shooting at closest focus. If I did, it might be a ...
