  • I've really wanted a reasonably priced 24-70 f4 FX of similar build and IQ of the 16-35 and 70-200 f4 lenses, but with the Z mount I would say there will be very few new FX lenses from Nikon, if ...
  • I fully agree.  I'm sure Nikon is going to put everything they have into mirrorless and Z mount lenses, like it or not.  For me, I'll hesitate buying any new F mount lenses, especially third party. ...
  • I bought a used Nikon 70-200 f4 from KEH and it has far exceeded my expectations.  It is very, very sharp at all focal lengths and is of professional build.  I also have the Nikon 80-200 f2.8, but ...
  • I have the 16-35vr for my D810, and really, really like it for my landscape photography.  Its my most used lens.  If anything happened to it I would buy another one with no hesitation.   It is ...
  • Yes, i need to update that.   Really, all three of the f4 zooms are in the same retail price range here in the US, but the wide and tele zooms have the better build quality than the 24-120 IMO.
  • I think its a decent, but not great, lens as far as image quality is conerned.  It falls short of both my 16-35 and 70-200 vr lenses both in IQ and build quality.   My biggest issue with the lens ...
  • Thanks.  I'll check that one out.  I would just continue using what I have for now as it's not that old (and still may), but I'm in need of a new computer and am debating whether to go with an ...
  • No i've not seen the Ipad pro yet but I'm sure they are very nice.  My wifes basic Ipad blows my $400 Dell monitor away when I look at my photos on it.
  • Well, I actually feel like the colors are fairly accurate even without custom calibration, as when I get prints made by a lab (e.g., Mpix or Nations) they are typically very close to what I see on ...
  • Created discussion thread Looking for a more vibrant monitor
    I have a wide gamut Dell U2413 24" monitor, that receives good reviews overall, but to me doesn't present a very vibrant image. I'm not sure if that's because of the non-glossy finish or is it ...
  • Thank you for all your input.  I think I'm just going to go with a .75 (2 1/2 stop) medium, as it will fall in between the 2 and 3 stop versions and hopefully be a good general purpose one filter ...
  • I would highly recommend going the 105 2.8 vr used route.   A few weeks back I picked up a used one in excellent (like new actually) condition at a camera shop in Charlotte for just over $500 and ...
  • Created discussion thread Lee medium ND grad
    Has anyone purchased one of the new Lee medium grad filters?  I currently only have one ND grad, a Lee 3 stop soft.  While it's ok for some limited situations, like forests, most of the time the ...
  • I was always reluctant to buy used lenses, but since Nikon seldom does lens only rebates anymore, I've been going that route more often.  Last year I bought the 70-200 f4, and aside from a very ...
  • That is a fantastic deal for a new lens.  I bought a new white box 24-120 a couple years ago off of Ebay for around $560.  Last year I dropped it and had to get it repaired.  I had no issues with ...
  • I highly recommend the reasonably priced Oben leveling base.  I believe it sells for $99 at B&H photo now, which is more than I paid.  It is very solid, fairly light, and the bubble level is ...
  • For landscape photography I really think a good zoom is a much better option.   Personally I would rather give up just a tiny bit of sharpness (if any) in exchange for having the right focal ...
  • If you do get the 24-70 someday, the 20mm makes much more sense.  The 20mm, 24-70, and 70-200 f4 would make a very nice three lens set.  With just a little cropping you could really use it as a ...
  • I use my 16-35 f4 for landscape photography all the time and think it's fantastic, especially in the wider end from 16-24.  I can't imagine using a lens for landscape photography that doesn't ...
  • I agree.  I really wish Nikon would come out with a 24-70 f4 vr, with outstanding optics and build quality similar to the 24-70 2.8 lenses.  That would make a great f4 set with the already ...
