    Love the mood in this shot! Terry.

    Impressions of the Nikon Df

    It would sure be nice to see an iteration of the D800/E with this new viewfinder and live view. Terry.

    A 13.3"x20" print should nicely do the job. That's a D3200 file printed at native resolution on a 300dpi Canon printer. Terry.

    So, if Sten would attach the original image files (or provide a download link) we could each produce a print as nfoto suggests and complete the experiment, so to speak. I would highly value that opportunity. Sten, would you be able to facilitate that? Thanks. Terry.
  5. I read a comment recently by Vincent Versace praising the D600. He's using it on a shoot in Burma. Yet, in the same post he said "the D4 does it a bit better". So I'm intrigued. Is it the lowered noise floor that you're referring to above, or is there more going on with the D3S / D4? Terry.

    Need advice regarding potential purchase of D800

    I see where you're coming from. A built-in GPS would be really handy for landscape work, in my case. Terry.

    Dallas, what are the things that you were looking for, that would have made you smile instead with these cameras? Terry.
  8. That's interesting. I took shots handheld in my local camera store using my D700 and their D600 / D800. I used my 60 AFS Micro for the test and when I evaluated my "out the window shot" last night the D800 was clearly the resolution winner. The image was shot at 1/500. I wonder how one of my other lenses would have fared. Which lenses have you had marginal or poor results from? Terry.

    Ming Thein's D600 review....

    Thanks Andrea! This is encouraging. For me, this is one of the things I would really miss if I replaced my D700 with a D600, although it can be worked around. Terry.

    D600 - Questions and Answers

    Bjorn. . . With the D800 you expressed some concern about noise in flat lighting being an issue even at ISO 800, but you also noted that the camera was fine up to 3200 in other lighting conditions.With the D600 you mentioned in another thread that "A cursory glance at high ISO NEFs show very low noise levels.". Now that you've finished your D600 testing how would you describe it's noise performance? Does it exhibit excessive noise in flat lighting like the D800? Is the D600 truly a step up in noise performance from the D700? Thanks. Terry.

    I go through a "pre-flight checklist" every time I start a shooting session. I could really use a function like this! Terry.

    Ming Thein's D600 review....

    Bjorn, you had reported an abrupt transition from out of focus to in focus with the D800 in some situations, and I'm wondering if you've observed any of the same with the D600. My apologies if you commented on this earlier and I missed it. Terry.

    D600 - Questions and Answers

    Bjorn, have you used the D600 with an SB-800? If so, are there any concerns or surprises? Terry.

    Ming Thein's D600 review....

    John, I assume you're suggesting that I keep the D700 because the D600 is a different class of camera. My analysis at this point is based on outcomes; what I will see on my computer screen and how my prints will look. I really need to get a D600 in my hands to see how it feels and and responds. That would certainly be my preference. I'm thinking however, that a more direct replacement for the D700 is unlikely. Hopefully I'm wrong. Terry.
