Happy Birthday - Nikon D1h turns 17 years old!

17 year old Nikon Body + 47 year old Nikkor Lens!

The old Nikon D1h is 17 years old this month! Paired with an even older classic lens (the 37 year old Nikkor 105 f/2.5 AIS), it still produces some good results to this day!

It has become a habit of mine to get at least a few shots off (however long that cursed D1 battery lasts) every shoot. Every time I use it, it surprises me with a few keepers!

I still love the colors it produces along with the IQ it gives. The old CCD sensors are really something!

For most social media uses, it has enough resolution that no one can tell the difference between this classic and most modern cameras.

Also, I just uploaded full 32 GB worth of D800 raw files right before I uploaded a 1GB CF card worth of raw files from a D1h. I miss those small file sizes!

Anyone else have some recent "classic" Nikon body/Lens combo photos?
