  • David, I shoot with V1 and this lens, so this may/may not apply to V2.  But, I find the V1 also slightly overexposes in bright or contrasty light.  So, I set the exp/comp to -.3EV whenever I'm in...

  • Agree.  The D7100 crops are superior to the V2.  I noticed you also own a D700.  Similar personal tests with a V1 vs D300 and a 70-300VR lens showed the V1 was slightly superior.  I'd be interested...
  • Replied in No G7??

  • Let's see.  A new hot-shoe compatible with all Nikon flash units.  Check!  (Can't use it if you want to use the EVF.  Uncheck!) A beautiful, new body design which, if rumors are true, is more like...

  • I've just read the updated rumor along with the description of features and am dismayed that the EVF isn't built-in.  However, IF the EVF is compact and solidly mounted (as if it were the "hump" on...

  • Tired of waiting for the "D400", Olympus' introduction of their EM-5 attracted me enough to order it with the thought of possibly changing systems.  However, the order backlog was so long, I...
