Hello everyone! Just a quick group for all you D750 owners out there, show me what you've got!

Here's a photo I took of the rock band Five Finger Death Punch when they were here last week.

Top photo taken with Nikon D750, Tamron 24-70 F/2.8 VR @ ISO 560, 70mm, F/2.8, 1/100th (About a 10% crop, otherwise straight out of the camera's JPG on JPG-Normal, Standard. Turns out this lens is NOT as sharp as I'd hoped on the D750, but, it's still quite nice and that price...)

Bottom photo taken with Nikon D750, Nikkor 80-200 F/2.8 @ ISO 140, F/2.8, 1/125th. (Some basic levels/curves and a slight crop.)

(Yikes, that banding! That's from exporting it in Lightroom to get it into the forum image requirements... oops.)

How do you find the Tamron 24-70 when stopped down?

It's fine by F/4 and quite good by F/5.6.

Honestly, it's not that bad even at 2.8, it's just not... that sharp either.

I just took it out of my cart in favor of the Sigma 24-105 f4 which is supposedly VERY sharp.

Yeah! I'm regretting not getting the 24-105 F/4... I thought I really wanted the low DoF of the F/2.8 but since it's not that sharp.. ugh!
Honestly, on a D700 or D3s I never noticed it. (We use those on the ship). They just don't resolve enough for it to make a difference.

Everything I've read says it is. I'm going to look at do to see how it fares.

Yes, the Sigma is noticeable sharper, especially at F/4, than the Nikon 24-120 F/4. Also, it feels a LOT nicer in the hand. I've used both (recommended the Sigma to two friends who got it, and used the 24-120 a lot at work.) I'm not a fan of the Nikon 24-120, it just feels cheap and it's easy to break.

Got it, LOVE it. It's put together SO nice, magnesium body. =)

I haven't had a legitimate Nikon grip since the D200, and I've got to say, WOW. It fits perfectly, it's super secure, the buttons are great.... It makes the camera call enough for me to easily use, and unlike the Phottix grip I had for the D600, I'm not worried about mounting it to a tripod.
