D800 + 14-24 = D790
3

I can not get over how amazing the 14-24 performs on the D800. This was my first time getting out with the 14-24, all previous outings have been with lesser quality lenses. When I went thru editing, I was amazed at how important it can be to put top glass in front of the D800 sensor, if IQ is ultimately what you are after. HUGE difference. This is SO much fun! I wish I would have picked up a D800 sooner, BUT I am glad that I waited for Nikon to get their QC under control. Im not sure why, but dpreview makes the image look blury and oof.

Great shot and some really nice stuff in your gallery too. Do you like the 14-24 over the 16-35?

For IQ, definitely the 16-35. But for convenience and shooting with filters, the 16-35 takes the cake. I'll most likely sell both and get the Nikkor 16-35 f/2.8 when it comes out.

For IQ, I meant 14-24.

I don't understand your title

What does "=D790" mean?

Good composition, good framing and nice camera angle, but the foreground looks a bit flat to me, could be the light of the day.--

Lovely image and you really have some great work on your Flickr. Pardon me to dare a small critique on this one, i find the WB a bit too cold, strangly more so on top and bottom, the clouds are amlost cyan in color and the tulips are of two different shades of violet. Please take this as an absolutely constructive critique.

regards

Tomas

Re: D800 + 14-24 = D790

Thanks for the critique and feedback. I used CS5.1 to image blend. This was a quick shot, so I didn't put as much into processing as I normally would. D790 is just a play on words/numbers using the D800 and the 14-24 (800+14-24). I'm just being a goof is all!
