Bohemien's recent activity

  • I actually find focusing this lens not too hard on my D600. The "green dot" in the VF works fine for focus confirmation, but it will light up in a zone of distances (it's designed to confirm focus ...
  • The 18-35G is a great travel zoom, relatively compact and light weight, reasonably sharp and the bokeh is not too bad either. I bought it shortly after it came out and posted a little user review, ...
  • As others have said, better use it for landscapes and faster lenses. If you're looking for a good one, I can really recommend the X4 CPL by breakthrough photography.
  • The "bokeh whore" argument is a strong one for the 24G. I wouldn't buy it for landscapes alone if I had the 14-24, as that's already a stellar lens in that department IMHO. One thing that wasn't ...
  • Thanks for posting this link, interesting read! Ah, one just has to love the marketing guys for sentences like these: "Connoisseurs of soft focus will definitely want to use the ZEISS Classic ...
  • Lighting has been mentioned, and I'd say it plays a role, but e.g. fPrimes examples above (the log and the cow) show the effect under different lighting, so nobody's made a guess about which ...
  • In addition to the questions Leonard asked: Do you want an "all-in-one" solution? Then there's the Nikon 28-300. Or do you want something that goes beyond your 120mm and you're ok with swapping ...
  • :-D :-D :-D
  • Yes, the D610 has the triangles. :-)
  • All three spectacular lenses. Between 85 and 105mm, it's a question of preference, what suits you best in terms of working distance. If you work in narrow spaces a lot, maybe 85mm is the wiser choice.
  • I think I know what you mean here, and of course that's exactly the point where the discussion unfortunately becomes pretty heated in the forums, but I think we're gladly beyond that now. :-) Somet ...
  • Thanks for this clarification! In this definition, both of your examples "pop" in my eyes. The log and the cow both look very 3-dimensional to me, again no matter at what size I view the photos on ...
  • Replied in Apertures
    Ok, thanks for commenting! That makes it more difficult, of course, as we seem to still have different opinions on depth perception (not just you and me, I mean). Maybe we need a good definition of ...
  • Replied in Apertures
    Hm. Somebody just posted these pictures in another thread, both have a lot of "pop" for me, and both are at f/5.6. In the second one, to my eyes, the dog seems to leap out of my screen. Also, the ...
  • I completely agree! When looking at the in-focus part of the orchids, one has to consider though that these were shot hand-held, so even a slight camera movement will have changed the plane of ...
  • Took two quick snaps in the house. I guess you're right (until proven wrong :-D ), the difference between f/1.2 and f/1.4 is negligible. DOF Calculator says DOF at MFD (50cm) is 7.2mm@f/1.2 and ...
  • Thanks for taking the time to make these! Although the lighting is much more favourable as in the series of bushes I posted before, I don't see striking depth or "pop" in any of these pictures, ...
  • Good teacher! :-D You'll have the 28-300, completely sufficient with the primes at first. And while the Nikon zooms (24-85, 24-120 and 28-300) all have good IQ, the f/2.8 versions are a step up.
  • Look here: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/nikortek.htm Simple answer: G is newer and has built-in motor (AF-S in Nikon speak), D has aperture ring and (I'm not sure if in all cases) needs a ...
  • Replied in +1...
    ...to what Raymond suggested, all really good lenses. To complement your 50/1.8 for portraits, I think you have it right considering the 85/1.8G. Or, if you like its rendering better (check images ...
