Shashikant: Ihave Nikon D7000 and Nikon lenses.I am facing focussing problem with Nikon micro lens 105mm, f/2.8 G IF-ED VR lens in Auto mode. Can you please tell me in general which method will give best results - Auto focus or Manual focus. All the Nikon lenses included.

I noticed this post. Maybe it will help?http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/42165324

Rod McD: No built in EVF (probably) or an expensive add on EVF (possibly) and a lens which ends up at f6.4? For $3,000? No thank-you. I'll stick for the time being with my G1X as my second camera - great IQ and slightly faster zoom. My future Fuji XE1s or XE2 upgrade is looking very secure indeed. That's unless there's a good, small and reasonably affordable FF MILC released (the NEX9?). With built in EVF please. Let's face it - that's what everyone's waiting for......

An add on wouldn't be surprising. Didn't the M an X2 have that option for an extra $600?

Narcosynthesis: My question is was it ever said that the original run of 20 were the only prints that would be made of this image?

Photography is a medium where images are readily reproducible, and unless it was specifically stated there would be no more made of this image, I would work on the assumption that there may be more made in the future - in a different form if the earlier images were a limited edition (different sizes, finish, process) but still the same picture.

I agree. Yes, the word "limited" is important. But so isn't the word "edition".

meanwhile: As a photograph of a tricycle, yes, perhaps the car on the right could go.

As an artwork though? No, it serves a distinct purpose. It redirects the eye back into the frame after you have followed the curve of the trike handle, and stops your gaze and attention "falling out" of the scene. It solidifies the layer between foreground and background and gives the road depth and scale. It adds population to the scene, creates a neighbourhood, rather than just a singular family. The colour of the car helps to balance the colour of the bike. The shadows under the car help to balance the shrubs and dark in the windows on the left, and anchor the frame.

The photograph is not just about the tricycle. I don't think it's at the level of twaddle of that Smithsonian article ("bestows on that tricycle the majesty—and ineffability—of an archangel’s throne" ... err, OK), but it's far from meaningless.

For some reason I really like the image. Personally, I find it really off balance, though. The right side feels about twice as heavy as the left. But hey, who cares as long as we like it :)

Great software-their HDR plugin puts Adobe's built-in HDR processor to shame!

I just got the chance to download it and am thoroughly impressed. Finally a great alternative to the disappointing Merge to HDR in Bridge!

pcblade: The apertures of the three lenses are terrible, no incentive to jump on the Nikon's bandwagon...

I'm not impressed with the apertures either. Even though a wider aperture usually keeps the price down, I rarely look twice at a lens that starts at 3.5. I prefer putting my Nikon 50mm 1.8 on my digital body.
