  • I like it, thumbs up.......but I wouldn't know what to do with it. I'm still struggling to find a reason for 36mp full frame!
    I don't get the need for even MORE detail unless I'm printing to the...

  • Rishi said.....While you can do this with a dynamic area, you have to initiate AF on a suddenly appearing subject very precisely, placing the one point you've selected over the subject. That's hard...

  • No, D200 has GROUP dynamic AF. From the manual

    "A group of AF sensing areas (either four arranged in a diamond or triangle pattern, or three arranged in a line) can be chosen to control focus...

  • Why do they say 'Group Area AF introduced in the D4S' I had group (Dynamic) Area AF on the D200! I missed it on the D700, now its back on my D810 and it doesn't seem to be much different in set up...

  • I've found my old MF lenses wide open are soft on the D810, on the D700 they were acceptable. I haven't done scientific tests, and I haven't tried AF fine tune corrections, (which I did for one of ...
  • Replied in D700
    My point is, that they never made one, and they should have. Most D700 owners who have moved either went 'down' to the D6XX body, or up to a D8XX, neither of which filled the D700 gap. the D750, a ...
  • My fear in the D810 was that the files would be difficult to manage. Happily write and download speeds are quicker than the D700. (Expeed 4, USB3!!!) I remain to be convinced though that my middle ...
  • I totally agree, having just replaced the D700 with a D810, its a great camera and I'm loving it, but its not really what I wanted! who needs 36MP? When they had an F5, I had an F100 (the mini F5) ...
  • I quite like my 80-400 VR!!!! Set at 80 and stopped down, I just find it so sharp and contrasty, its brilliant for long exposure milky water falls and sharp surroundings. Its not what I go to ...
  • No, after 35 years taking (not very good) pictures I've pretty much used every lens for everything! My glass purchases have always been 'general' could do anything rather than the most expensive ...
  • Hi Thanks for the advice. I think that sort of confirms my thoughts, I like what the Art lenses do, but probably the 20 or 24 nikkor 1.8s are the best option for me, I've also had minor focus ...
  • On paper that's what I thought was great about the Df, but in the 'flesh' I just felt it was a lot of money for something that 'felt' inferior. I know I'm used to F100-D800 form factor, but I did ...
  • Created discussion thread Wideprime for 810?
    So later in the year I'm going to buy glass. For landscapes mainly, whats the best AF prime for D810? I have a D series 24mm and Sigma 20 1.8 DG at the moment, I use filters so what the advice on: ...
  • Trying before you buy is the problem. There are so few shops, and even fewer with a full stock for comparison. I could find a Jessops, 70 miles away with a 750 and nothing else. I could have ...
  • My first AF camera was an F100, and since then my main camera has always been that kind of body. To me its the most intuitive layout. I've had other cameras as second bodies, D70, D100 but I've ...
  • I don't think that would work, the download times would be horrendous! The Rev
  • I agree. I don't need, even want 36mp, and that kind of resolution begs the more modern (heavier) lenses, that's why I initially tried a Df, but hated it! I now have a D810! Love it for the ...
  • I agree with PK, the D810 is much better in low light. As for the file size, that's not as much of an issue as write times and upload times.....strangely with the D810 NEF files I find the write ...
  • Replied in Both!
    I think I'm odd! But I think the way I do things is governed by a strong left eye dominance! So when I write I'm right handed. I hold the camera right handed, but use my left Eye......I tested this ...
  • Yeah.....I hadn't thought that one through....what if I asked for f1.4 and forgot it was an f2.8 lens? Wait....I know what we need, since my decision making when taking pictures is so full of ...
