    For your comment on my pictures. Very kind of you. Yes, sometimes it's surprising to see how small world is :-) -- Thanks Jemini Joseph http://wildbirdimages.com/
  • 400/2.8 can be a 560/4 lens. That's why I think 400 have shallower depth of field which is very close to 600/4 than 500/4. My understanding anyway. I could be wrong.
  • I don't believe their final score. Well, I don't look at them. For example they give very high priority for low ISO DR when they score cameras. But I always believe their individual numbers. For ...
  • I know 7D II is very tempting and I was tempted and got one. I didn't left Nikon. Kept my D4 and got 7D as second body with one lens. This is what I'm finding so far Pros 1) AF is pretty close to ...
  • Thanks for your input Chuck I think the same way. It could be the photographers who's using it are mostly professionals and they know what they are doing :). On the other hand lots of amateurs like ...
  • I think I should ask the same question. What do you mean by "Normal"? :) Did you mean the 400/5.6? One extra stop will cost much more in any focal length. Look at the 300/4 vs 300/2.8. That's more ...
  • Is there anything special about bokeh on 400/2.8 that the 500/4 don't have? Since the focal length difference, let's compare 400 with 1.4 TC. So the lens becomes 560/4. 560/4 will be slightly ...
  • Looks like it's an awesome lens. I won't need to buy a 300mm for hand holding for long time. Did you see any improvement in AF speed? Nikon says "The new lens designs significantly improve AF ...
  • I see. The 300 is a very sharp lens. I know it's hard to copare them unless u back off and shoot with 500. Don't do it for me. If u are comparing them for u, please post ur findings :-) -- Thanks J ...
  • As I mentioned in your earlier thread, this is another great set and people didn't care :( In this series also I love the 7th shot where you can see both bird and fish's eye..
  • Replied in Amazing..
    Amazing shots. Even more amazing the number of appreciation you got!. People are so obsessed with D400, not any more with pictures. Thank you for sharing them. My favorite is the one chick in the ...
  • Excellent again. Do you still have your old lens (if had one)? Anyway to compare with old VR version primarily the bokeh? I'm sure people want to see the sharpness too. I'm not too worried about ...
  • Tom, I hear ya. I know we want to see the actual resolution of the lens. I do too. I do believe this will be very close to the current model (slightly better or worse) and the sharpness may not ...
  • Looks like many replies are pointed only toward the sharpness. I understand this is am equipment forum. Still.. I see it differently. The image(s) have no CA and awesome bokeh. I'm not worried ...
  • I understand. For me reach is not an issue (especially where I live people take birds shots with their cell phones ::) and I'm not looking for tight closeups. So even 500mm alone will do for me. ...
  • Replied in Awesome!
    Excellent demo. Very sharp. I don't think you can get sharper images than this in real life. Thank you very much for doing this. I have no doubt about sharpness. I'd like to see bokeh if you have ...
  • Hmm, you are making my decision difficult :) As Brad says one should pick the best for him. For me 500 is the best mainly because of the weight and middle focal length. As I shoot with D4, 400 may ...
  • Lance Anything special about 400/2.8 and 600/4 regarding bokeh compared to 500mm? It's a hard question to ask I think. In short I feel 500mm has little harsh bokeh compared to other two lenses I ...
  • I'm in the same boat. I hand hold the lens a lot these days. Thanks for the input. I'm sure the weight saving will be very noticeable. However I'm looking into 600/400 too because of reach as you ...
  • I'm generally reluctant to use the TC (only 14E) because I felt the AF suffers by it on my 500mm VR. Somehow I never got consistent success with it. So I almost never use it. If the new lens with ...
