Re: A NEW ASPECT TO CONSIDER FOR ANY LENS!

Chill Mike - it's all in your wording. Yes I read the whole posting and hence my comments. Not all responses have to be positive - a little constructive feedback is a good thing. I did not personally insult you in any way or use harsh language, so I'm not sure why you seem to be getting upset.

Sorry, John...that response wasn't personally directed at you.

One of the unfortunste aspects of cyber-discussions is that when you hit "Reply", it looks as if you are speaking to a specific poster when you might not actually be.                                        Also, of course, you can't 'hear' the tone of voice a poster is using and dry, printed words with no tonal inflection to inform them, can seem harsh when that was not the intent.

Finally, I guess I just reached the 'overload point'. A culmination of hearing from too many 'true' a-holes on too many forums (forae?)...not just photography.

Let's be friends...

Just may look Tom up Mike.  My scope is a baby compared to you guys.  I primarily use an Obsession 12.5.

Cheers (and clear skies)

Re: A NEW ASPECT TO CONSIDER FOR ANY LENS!

Thanks Michael. This is useful. I recently discovered this issue myself with my D800, but upon closer inspection of my older images I realized this happened with my older cameras as well. Looking over pictures taken years ago with the D2x I owned at the time I finally realized why photos taken with my 70-200 were not 100% sharp at distance. I like using a telephoto lens to shoot far-away landscapes, and for sure this is an effect I have to take into consideration.

You bet! You seem like a guy who knows some good stuff and I'd love to hear more.

Maybe, or...

...it could just be that Nikon has produced another lens with CA/infinity focus issues like the 200-400VR and, to a lesser extent, the 500VR, for two examples.

I expect we'll know more after some proper testing ... and more datapoints from users.
