On Tamron 16-300mm Di II VC PZD real-world samples article (102 comments in total)

Good price, about $1200; it is a good choice for the enthusiast bird and wildlife photographer. I rented it for a weekend and found it soft at 600 f5.6 but gets very sharp at f8. (The canon 300 f2.8 + 2TCIII is sharper but very expensive and much heavier).

On Nikon D600 Hands-on Preview preview (713 comments in total)

maxiim: Thx for the preview. Still awaiting the full review though such that I can make up my mind. Anyway, when comparing D600 with 5DIII in JPEG (ISO100) I slightly prefer the color depth and quality of the D600. However, in RAW the D600 pics become blurry and look pale when compared to the 5DIII. For example, put the zoom on Mickey's head, you will see the difference. Now I wonder, is this the processing? I guess at the time LightRoom didn't fully support the D600, whereas this has changed in the meantime. Anyone else sees this behavior?

I agree. I positioned the magnifier box over the queen of hearts and in Raw, the 5DIII wins hands down vs D600 and D800 but the D4 tops them all. The queen of hearts is behind (further back) than the 3-D objects, so maybe due to OOF?

Hauer: With so many folks eagerly awaiting the D300 / D300s DX upgrade, I am very surprised that the interviewer made no mention of the D400.

My thoughts as well, an obvioius question to ask that. Using Dx mode on the D600 is a backward step from the D300s!!!
