In comparing different lens scores I'm quite confused to see some of his zooms scoring higher than some primes. Would you please explain why this is, or more likely how I'm interpreting it. I do know the value of real life scene evaluation is but just want to know what I'm missing when I look at these particular scores.  I will link two examples. One of the Sigma 35 ART to the 35FL of Nikon's 24~120. You will see the Nikon is scoring higher numbers which makes no sense to me. I have seen this...

My camera choices are Nikon D800e or Olympus OMD 1. I have 1st generation VR 70-200 2.8f for the Nikon and 40-150 f 2.8 for the Olympus. Graduations indoors so no flash and will have to use high ISO. I do have some faster lens but the distances to me are such to require use  of telephoto. Both lens take great pics but my memory seems to point to the 70-200 as the faster focusing which will be important. Any other suggestions on fast focus that is needed. --jay coffsky

Following the stupid decision to upgrade to version 1.10, I am left looking to roll back. Does anybody have, or know where to download, firmware version 1.09?

Using Nikon D800e: Not that it can be changed but I don't understand why ISO Sensitivity Settings go from using actual ISO numbers from 200 to 6400 and then suddenly jumping to using Hi0.3, Hi0.7, Hi1, Hi2, etc. This seems to the inexperienced (me) to be just a bad joke. What's the purpose? What's the benefit of introducing this confusion?

While photographing the Governor today, my venerable D800Extreme began to show black in the lower quarter frame about every 5th shot. I have seen this before and it required a new shutter. The serial number is < 1000 and ordered the day it was announced, it is way out of warranty. Nikon.com lists 16 authorized repair "stations" in the lower 48 but lists them as "independent businesses", with prices "not subject to review by Nikon". I am wondering about quality and turnaround time. Any...

I'm planning to purchase a Nikkor 50mm prime for general use  (street, portrait, landscape, etc). Is this lens good? I read mostly good reviews, but some reviewer said it does not perform well with FX bodies. Any feedback? Thanks

In trying to check out a D800e for functions, I am having difficulty formatting the storage, both CF and SD. I have followed the instructions on page 32 of the manual and nothing happens. It just goes back to the controls screen. Press and hold Mode and Trash until "For" appears. Press Mode and Trash again to format. There is only one card in the camera.  It goes back immediately to the control screen -- no indication of a format taking place.
