  • I am very surprised that there seems to be no good solution to this. Viewing from a storage device (USB pen or hard disk) seems to be the only generally workable solution. Chromecast Ultra casts 4K ...
  • Replied in 105
    I basically agree. Well, to me lenses are first and foremost tools for the job. For some photographing an event with a 200mm f/2 becomes unpractical "because of the planning needed to carry such a ...
  • Ask your wife if she rather like you to take up another hobby. There are plenty of hobbies much more expensive than photography. Just think of motor bikes, cars, female handbags, watches, ... Photo ...
  • Hi Keith. The lens is a gem. I have owned it for some time now and it amazes me. It is very sharp even wide open and has an outstanding bokeh (samples in link). It is also great for landscape and ...
  • The Sigma seems excellent. The 105mm certainly is (I own it). Your call :)
  • Myrland - 105mm f/1.4e at f/1.4
  • Created discussion thread 105mm f/1.4e for landscape
    I have owned the 105mm for some time now and it continues to amaze me. I suppose most people purchase this lens to be used for events and portraits. These are also main use cases for me but I was ...
  • I fully agree. Nikon should update the 50mm f/1.4g to be in the same league as the 85mm f/1.4g - or better, the 105mm f/1.4e. They could easily charge a premium for it. Yes, there are other options ...
  • I have spent a lot of time giving and receiving critique through the Critique Portfolio Pro group on Flickr. I usually do not critique images here unless people ask for it. But, you said in your ...
  • You are welcome. Maybe because I am also using the 200mm f/2 a lot (2930g) I never really thought of the 105mm f/1.4e as heavy (985g). The Nikon 85mm f/1.4g is 595g by comparison but the new Sigma ...
  • Hi Simon and welcome to the forum. Good advice has been given here already but may I also suggest an alternative path? Keep your 18-200 and add the 35mm f/1.8 DX, the 50mm f/1.8g and/or the 85mm ...
  • Christmas time is bokeh time :-) Nikon 105mm f/1.4e at f/1.4 Perfect circles in the middle and some optical vignetting on the sides. Nikon 105mm f/1.4e at f/1.4 I am actually less than happy with ...
  • Actually I find the 200mm f/2 the beauty and the 105mm f/1.4 the beast. Let me explain why. The 200mm f/2 is a near perfect lens (except its size and weight). It is as if it sprinkles fairy dust on ...
  • Having some insights into the Japanese way of business thinking I am confident the product management at Nikon had this weight threshold in mind and forwarded this as a requirement to the ...
  • What an odd turn this thread took... At dpreview I usually explicitly ask people not to criticise my images when they are meant to showcase some aspect of a lens or gear. On Flickr I help run a ...
  • Both Canon and Nikon have great systems. It comes down to you personal preference and existing gear. My D800 camera still amazes me even after almost 5 years in use. I am sure we will see a leap ...
  • Thanks for clarifying! Well I would personally add a 35mm and an 85mm prime but since you never will touch them (according to what you write below), there are of course a number of mid range FX ...
  • I remember it quite well - for the obvious reasons! :-) Yes and this is the main advantage of zooms of course! I have chosen a different path for light travel. I trade focal range against better ...
  • May I also suggest you use the primes not just for portraits and low light but also landscapes/travel at f/5.6-f/8. Compare those shots to the ones you get from the super zoom. Good luck and enjoy!
  • I am a huge admirer of the new 105mm f/1.4e but I would not swap a D810 with a D750 to be able to afford it. But you already have the Nikon 85mm f/1.4g according to your gear list? This is an ...
