    24-70mm f/4.0 S

    This lens is an good example of the advantages the new Z-mount brings. The large diameter of the Z mount allows the lens designers to come up with new exciting and/or better performing lenses. The Z 24-70mm f4 is an example of the latter, it's optimised for the new mount and thus behaves in a way like the similarly optimised lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system, the outstanding Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 comes to mind. The Nikkor Z 24-70mm f4 has excellent MTF figures but what's more important in every day use, it's a no-nonsense tool for fantastic images. Finally a "standard range"

    What’s the occasion?

    I thought all the big events were over and done with but there has been a barrage of new products in the last few days - all mirrorless ! first a new Nikon Z Lens; a new Canon R body plus a slew of R mount lenses previewed and a new body and lens from Fuji. There was also a Panasonic announcement a week or two earlier.

    Street Photography With the Nikon Coolpix A

    In my seemingly never ending quest for smaller and lighter gear for my street photography, I recently acquired a slightly used Nikon Coolpix A compact camera. I had previously been shooting with M4/3 gear, specifically Panasonic cameras. The A was introduced in June 2013. It features an APS-C DX 16.2 megapixel sensor in a very small, compact package. It comes with a fixed 28mm (35mm equivalent) f/2.8 lens. The camera has a shutter speed range of 30 seconds to 1/2000 and the ISO can be set from 100 to 6400, with two extensions available- 12,800 and 25,600. While I rarely shoot
  4. On my seemingly-eternal search for interesting lenses for close-up work I could not help but come across the Schneider Kreuznach Macro Varon 85mm f/4.5 CAS lens, if only because Schneider promotes the Macro Varon all over the place. And that’s a lot of promotion for a lens most photographers have never heard of. Well, I heard about the Macro Varon and searched it down to its price tag of $4500 and that set me back on my heels a bit. I don’t need a new lens THAT much. Well, perhaps a Zeiss Otus or two would be alright. I did make some calls, sent out some email requests and finally

    The Printing Nikkors: Images and Range

    The Nikon industrial Printing Nikkors are exemplary and highly corrected lenses, but for whom? Who wants to use them because, for the most part, they are restricted to a particular narrow field of view. There not only is no infinity available, but in general they are highly restricted as far as view. Worse (much worse) is that the higher the f/stop, the less sharpness and resolution. So, we can’t just dial up the f/stop to f/11 or f/16 and expect spectacular results. The Printing Nikkors are optimized wide open or close to it.. They may be better than ordinary lenses, but the shar

    I discovered a feature of the software I didn't know existed before and have implemented it in the page footer of all posts where tags are in use. So, for example, having tagged this post with Nikon and Olympus, readers should see shortcut links to several posts with the same tags in the footer. Enjoy!

    Christmas Market

    This post is kind of a mixed bag, it's about the quality of images with a cheap kit lens and about the shooting experience. It's a tradition for me to visit and photograph the annual Christmas Market at our local garden centre. In the past I took my Nikon Df and Olympus E-M10 cameras with fast lenses, useful because the event is indoor and quite dark. This time I took my D5500 with the El Cheapo (only € 69 for a white box version in Holland) variable/slow aperture Nikon 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 AF-P lens. I also planned to use the Jpeg images and apply minimal post pr

    A new Rabbit Hole - Manual Focus Lenses

    I've dabbled a little with adapted lenses on my mirrorless cameras. Those lenses have always been of the modern type. Bumbling into one of the local camera shops here in town, I started looking through the old Nikon lenses (AI/AIS). With Nikon Df and adapted PEN-F in hand...I walked out of there with a Nikon 105/2.5 The lens is just so much fun and easy to use on either camera. That same day, even with the weather being as "meh" as it was, I got some good results and can see a lot more use of it for me. Perhaps some additional dedicated manual focus lenses are in my

    Comparing 3 Nikkor 16mm fisheyes

    I have a special craving for these lenses, especially the older one, the f/3.5. I compared an old f/3.5 non Ai, a f/2.8 Ais and the latest AF f/2.8D. I just wanted to know which one is the sharpest at center and border to decide once and for all which one will remain in my bag. I used a Nikon Df on a tripod, with Aperture Priority. This is far from a complete and scientific test. First batch are pictures of a map in my wall, with the camera placed 1m away from it, so focus may not be perfect. 100% crops from the center and upper left side, lens wide open and two other ape
  11. Covered this today for my VisualOhio news blog. I'd only ever watched a dog show on TV, never been to one in person. It was just like the big Westminster one but instead of one large ring, there were 156 smaller ones. I love dogs so this was a fun assignment. The people were great too! Enjoy!

    First Impressions of the Nikon D500

    This was a short video I put together comparing the Nkon D500 and D810 plus first out of the box impressions of the D500. I have since taken the D500 to Costa Rica and had much local time with it. All in all I believe it is a Fantastic body and probably the best DX DSLR body out there, at this time.

    Dealing With Those Nikon Reds - A Holiday Special

    Here is a little quick tip for you this holiday season. The bonus gift is that you'll get something that is useful all year long as well. If you've ever shot with a Nikon camera before, you'll know that it is very easy to blow out the red channel in your images (overly bright and saturated). It gives you what you see below: Lovely image of this little boy telling Santa what he wants for Christmas, but Santa's suit is a not right in the red sections. A quick way to rectify this in either Lightroom or Adobe Camera RAW or other post processing software is explained

    Moving from Nikon to Olympus

    I never thought the day would come when I would once again be without a Nikon camera in my kit. There was a brief period between 2001 and 2004 when I shot with Canon EOS but then I returned to my Nikon roots in late 2005 with the purchase of a D70. It wasn’t long before all my EOS kit was traded in for more Nikon lenses and flashes. I was happy again. In 2009 I bought a brand new Nikon D700 and up until 2 days ago I had used that camera almost exclusively for all my professional assignments. Product launches, conferences, product photography, plus of course the wildlife and cultural safari

    The New 300 mm f/4 PF ED Nikkor E

    In terms of size, the use of a Fresnel principle has indeed dwarfed this 300 compared to other lenses of the same speed and focal length. Without its beefy sunshade, the PF Nikkor is just a tad longer to say an ED 180 mm f/2.8. It's lighter as well. Filter is the by now ubiquitous 77 mm size. Build and workmanship follow the current slick yet curiously anonymous fashion of modern Nikkors. The lens is slim enough to share the removable tripod collar of the 70-200 mm f/4 Nikkor. In common with that lens, the tripod collar is an optional extra. My review sample had no collar so I haven't been abl

    Same Place, Different Light

    I often think that the given light can play a more important role than the place itself. - This is about 200 meters down the river on the above shots, 2014. - And a newly edited shot from 2011, with my beloved and deeply missed D2X. "Moon Over Sea"

    Hiking (image heavy)

    In September this year I went for a few days hike in the Swedish mountains. I brought both a Nikon D810 and an Olympus OM-D E-M5. The Nikon for more serious shooting and the Olympus with a 17/1.8 to carry around my neck for casual shots. Both systems performed well. As can be seen from the pictures below, the temperature was on some days below freezing. That meant gloves were a necessity and operating the small controls on the Olympus was cumbersome. Nevertheless it was often preferably to digging for the Nikon in the backpack. The view from my tent the first night. Breakfast was interr
