Neocon's recent activity

  • When I purchased my D80, also picked up a Nikkor 18-35 zoom.  Needed something wider on the crop sensor.  Liked that zoom also covered the 35mm film format. Last summer I got the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 ...
  • Before the D3, Nikon pros were shooting on 6MP cameras.  No one laughed at their results.  If you can't produce excellent results with DX...the fault lies with you.
  • I use all of lenses wide open when the light is low.  Yes, stopping down could give better results.  But not if  using much slower shutter speed or too high ISOs.

  • I purchased this zoom two days ago and immediately noticed some focus issues.  Rather than just take photos of uninteresting objects around the house, I went shooting this morning.  Click below ...
  • I too am thinking about the Sigma f1.8 zoom for my D7000.   It will replace my Nikkor 18-35mm f3.5/4.5D.  For concerts I mainly use Nikkor 85mm1.8G.  The overwhelming majority of shots are taken ...
