Re: NOT Zeiss/Sony lens

It seems that the hood doesn't have the sony logo, but a small off-centered symbol (like those used by nikon to align the hood with the lens). This small symbol has also a blue-ish outline, so i don't think that there is a Zeiss badge, but rather an M/A-M switch...It would be great if someone with a Zeiss 24-70mm hood could check that!

[EDIT]I edited the confusing Subject name of my post xD

When shooting through glass you place the lens onto the glass Thus reducing reflections.

No you don't. Basically, you don't want to transfer vehicle vibrations into the camera, even with VR active. If you have to shoot through glass, you wear black, you bring a black velvet sheet that you tape or velcro to the top edge of the window, and you get "under the hood" and shoot.

Reversing the lens hood allows you to get the lens closer to the glass, which does help with some reflections, but not enough to wipe them all out. Reversing the lens hood also stops you from manually focusing (or zooming, depending upon which lens it is).

Re: NOT Zeiss/Sony lens

I have Sony Zeiss 24-70mm 2.8. When I put lens hood reversed I get either Sony logo or number of lens hood just like something is shown in side of the hood. Logo and switch look similiar as ZEISS-logo and MF/AF-switch of my Zeiss zoom and being at same places too...

Re: D4?

I dont think there is a battery grip attached, i think a strap is covering that area to make it unclear. also it looks like there might be no pop up flash

Re:reverse lens hoood

The "glass" in a helicopter is curved plastic. Scratches very easily. You don't rest anything anywhere on a helicopter to reduce vibration. I agree the hood is reversed to prevent loss, at least based on my experiences- I do not understand why he would reverse it. It seems it would make little difference either way.

Re:reverse lens hoood

Thom, you should have the same camera he was using to review. Tell us what it is.

Re: Insanity

It looks like a D3 variant given the size of the viewfinder, and if you look closely at the base of the body it looks like a D3.

Re:reverse lens hoood

I think I've read that Thom buys his cameras from a local dealer to review. I don't get the sense Nikon is giving him an early peek at anything and I think Thom only wants to review production units that anyone could buy off the shelf.

Re:reverse lens hoood

To me it looks like a D3 series with a sigma wide angle on?

I call it an A900 ... if it is a Sony

... which the lens suggests, but who knows? The photographers do ( the one holding the camera and the one who took his picture).

Re: A Photo Of The New Nikon???

It certainly can't be an 85mm. The petal hood doesn't make any sense, as petal hoods are for wide angle lenses. Also, the hood is too short for an 85mm.

Re: A Photo Of The New Nikon???

It looks an awful lot like a Sony/Zeiss zoom hood to me, but who knows?

Re: A Photo Of The New Nikon??? It's winter

and all thoughts turn to new cameras.

I posted a similar post on the Canon side in response to a rumor about a 9D. Just to make things fair.

The way to find out is not to speculate and gossip behind his back, but quite simply to get in touch with him and ask him.

He's already stated in his blog that he can't divulge anything about the client, or the gear. In fact, he stated the gear was "proprietary". That's what made his post interesting. Besides, this forum isn't about cameras or photography, it's about rumours and speculation. Get with the program =:-)

Plus, this way, he's gotten a nice little spike of visitors to his site, which I'm sure he doesn't object to.

He might object to it, on the same page he said his site went down due to another popular link. Which program are you with?

I'm with the "I like Bob Krist's work a lot, and I'm happy to draw attention to his site" program. My comment "Get with the program =:-)" was a good natured way of saying "hey, don't take all this speculation stuff too seriously - we'll all find out about the new Nikon(s) soon enough". See the little smiley face.

In any event, Mr. Krist posted the comment on his blog, he's been around a while, he knows how things get noticed. This little thread was just for fun. I suspect he'd be amused by the mini-furor his comment created. The fevered speculation about the new Nikon(s) is funny and fun, and if his comment can add to the carnival, why not.
