About me:

As hobby phothographer I made photos of architecture and sportscar events during my professional career as processmanager. Now companies ask me to do photoreports of there business. Therefore I am now an independent professional photographer and journalist.

Henri Nikon's current gear

Nikon D300
Nikon D800
Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D
my favorite sports camera by using the cropfactor and the refined and rapid AF-settings. The Tamron SP 24-70/2.8 VC works also perfect on the D300.
my preferred camera for architecture, portraits, landscape and the street. Even sports photography is no problem with the D800. AF works perfect and the results with AF-3D are better than expected in sports photography.
A very good lens for little money. I use it often for portrets on both the D300 and D800.
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
my standard DX-lens on the Nikon D300
my supreme sportslens on both the Nikon D800 and D300
handsome and good zoom lens on the Nikon D300 using the crop factor to get a long range lens. This lens performs superb even comparing with the 70-200mmf/2.8 though off course slower due to f/4.5-5.6 lens. It is sharp, accurate and with rather little distortion.
Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD
Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX
my standard FX lens on the Nikon D800. Extremely good lens with detailed and brilliant images and very little distortion.
Other gear:
  • Sigma 18-35mm/3.5-5.6 FX lens used with Nikon 801s
  • Sigma 28-105D/2.8-4 FX lens used with Nikon F801s, but still amazing good on my Nikon D800.
  • Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX Lens for Nikon A very good wide angle lens with relatively little distortion. It functions great on my Nikon D800, it is sharp and bright. It has no image stabilization but this is not important while the lens is used for architecture photography and landscape. A good value for money lens
