  • I have just started to study the large format cameras. I have borrowed it form a friend who moved to 4x5 digital camera way back in 2001. ((the back and lenses was 100K then)) I want to explore all ...
  • I don't think we are disagreeing in general, but you are focusing about something else than my OP thread and last quote above. The thread is about GLASS, and improvements on 36mp body's vs the new ...
  • Who can argue "Reilly Diefenbach" ? not messurements of DXO it seems ! Point in case, i have proven measurement from DXO that your statement regarding sharpness of the 50/f1.8D is wrong, please ...
  • Obvious all lenses will get better, but its sharply diminishing returns. I still stand by my conclusion that regarding sharpness it is better to buy new lenses on the 36mp than to use money on a ...
  • An unfair comparison, 70-200E FL +1.4TC and 300/f2.8 The zoom is only 280mm, (not even that i suspect ), i assume the nearly 20year old  300/f2.8 AF-s D is sharpest even if they were framed ...
  • Left Milvus 85/f1.4 Right Nikon 85/f1.4 D Zeiss is sharper, more contrast, better colors and no CA.                                                        The Nikon 85/f1.4 D is not up for the job ...
  • Left Sigma 50 Art right Nikkor 50/f1.2 The Nikkor 50f1.2 is quite close to the Sigma 50 Art regarding sharpness @f2, the Nikkor is a clear keeper for those who got one. Center of frame both @f2 Lef ...
  • ehhh, did you not see or read the last attachment from DXO i pasted, the 50/f1,8D is rated quite low by today's standards, and do not even resolve the center of a D800e at @f8. On a D850 it will ...
  • I am confident it wont. I had the Nikon 50/f1.4 that is equal sharp to the f1.8 version according to DXO, and my Sig 50A is significant more Sharp on my D800, this would only get magnified on the ...
  • The wall have always a big print hanging in it, i just took down a huge (86" diagonal) frame that i handmade as a prototype with 140x44mm wood profiles. On the brick wall is usually a 40x63" print ...
  • Created discussion thread Test, glass Good enough for D850 !
    Important, this writing will contain hyperbole's and big words that is only related to a image that is about 6,2ft wide. If one only see whole pictures at computers or small prints as A2 or A1 this ...
  • Replied in 200/f2
    The D4 is set up toward more my use, its better below 3200 ISO than the successors, particular the D5. Dynamic range is best at the D4 as it have its strength where most of my shots are made. The ...
  • Replied in 200/f2
    I am also a left eye shooter and use the same technique as you do on the shoulder when possible. Regarding next camera choice i think one should consider an D850 or D4, depending on the mp needs. ...
  • News flash !! Internet forums goes across all country's in the world , therefore one have to write in general terms so its as readable as possible. If not one have to write 195 responses one for ...
  • No i did not say i payed in USD. Just mentioned the amount in USD to be understandably for readers since its a globally known currency and "nobody" would know the amount if it was mentioned in my ...
  • North Europe, actually i payed 3315 USD (including an 10% discount), but over here any electronics have a 2 year mandatory warranty and 5 year for this product.                           And a ...
  • Hi, it was the same area of the frame, but here is from the D850. @ f2.8 200FL sharper all over. @f5.6 its eqaul in center but Nikon is sharper to the sides. Center @f2.8 Right side @f2.8 @f5.6 ...
  • att "RoyC01" you are correct. You seemingly have experience with the same lens and similar equipment as i have, i find it plausible that you should know if it was possible. I have tried this on the ...
  • hmm.. could you please advice me where to set this on the camera ? On the D800 i can not find this feature you guys mention. A few days ago i got the D850 and i cant figure it out here either where ...
  • Created user review thread 200/f2
    Pro ; Fast AF. Ultra sharp, its optical as good as it gets. Con;  weight of 3kg, i am looking forward to the assumable lighter "FL" version if its not too expensive. The foot of the lens should had ...
