  • Yeah, but the seal is more exposed this way.
  • Mine does this too. My concern is how this would affect the weather sealing.
  • Just got back from the camera store where I bought the lens. I started by testing the lens I got yesterday on a different D810 copy (the store's copy). Doing this, the problem persisted. Next I ...
  • For years now I've been using a setup where I usually keep my camera set to AF-C (or equivalent) mode, and set it so that only the rear focus button controls focus. This allows me to (a) uncouple ...
  • Here's some new info that may provide insight into this situation: My camera is set to "focus" in the AF-S priority setting, in conjuction with using the rear focus button only for focusing. I find ...
  • Thanks, StillLearning. I'm not sure what 7 EV translates to, but like I said, I was using it in broad daylight, with the problem happening a lot. On the flipside, using it indoors in not-so-great ...
  • Thanks, Rich. I'd be surprised if we're talking about the same thing. I just want to emphasize that this is not the expected occasional searching around for focus that cameras do when in AF-C mode ...
  • Hi all, Sorry for the very long overdue feedback on my experience with the new computer rig, but better late than never, right? To be fair, I did want to make sure I had gotten enough experience ...
  • Hi everyone, I just bought the Nikon 70-200mm f4 lens today. One of the first things I did with it was test how it plays with the fancy AF system of my D810. I put my camera in AF-C mode, and right ...
  • Honestly, Jim, you're probably right that the most prudent thing would be to wait for details on the new card to come out. Most of the reason I want to go for the 970, however, is because as I ...
  • Thanks, guys, for the further info. I actually came to a bit of a different conclusion after thinking about things some more. After doing a bit of a price analysis and using that to predict what ...
  • Just to provide a few more details that I gather from my own research, for the benefit of others: AMD generally does a better job at OpenCL. Nvidia generally does a better job at OpenGL. Nvidia has ...
  • Yeah. I've just been researching this whole issue, and the conclusion I'm reaching agrees totally with what Jim was saying. Namely, my best bet is to either go for an AMD card (e.g. R9 280X), or ...
  • Thanks, ADMint. As I mentioned, I'm specifically looking for advice (probably from Jim) as to whether having 4GB in the form of the GTX 760 (which comes in both 2GB and 4GB forms) would outweigh ...
  • I guess what I'm getting at is, would I be better off with a 4GB GTX 760 or a 2GB GTX 960, given that my main concerns are PS work, a little bit of video editing, and generally running at least 2 ...
  • Wow... thanks for the additional info, everyone! Re: the video card, I actually placed an order for the GTX 760 4GB card (before seeing the latest posts here) which was on sale for boxing day. ...
  • Thanks, everyone, for your terrific input. I really appreciate it. I think I've decided to go for the system I was originally leaning towards, namely the i7 4790k with 32 GB of RAM and a new ...
  • Thanks, Scott. I just checked the memory, and good call. It was set at 70% (not as bad as 50%, but not great either). Hopefully that'll help a bit. But I feel like having a good amount more memory ...
  • Thanks for the suggestions. I have definitely thought about this option, but the more I think about it, the more I'm deciding against it. It will add probably $300-$500 more to the cost, relative ...
  • Thanks a lot for the detailed info... really helpful (and encouraging, since it matches my plan, more or less :)). BTW, I assume you mean i7 4790 (not 4970)? Games are not a priority for me, for ...
