I will most likely end up grabbing both! Haven't really shot much with an 85 lens, but for the times when I want some compression it will sure come in handy. Not sure if I should grab the 70-200 as well since when I had my Canon it rarely got used.

I think for my ultra wide needs, the 14-24 is the best bet. Ive wanted that lens for so many years but as a Canon user I never really liked the idea of spending all that money just to MF it (even though for a wide angle its not a big deal).

Ive been using the A7R for a few months and love the juicy 36MP files, however the compressed Sony files did have a noticeable effect in the images. A lot of texture and details would be "mushed" (such as details in trees, grass etc.). Excited to have a fully usable 36MP file. Just need to upgrade my computer now to handle the new files a bit better.

Sorry it was a typo-I meant 24-70 not 14-70.

Have heard many good things about the 14-24 but the lack of filters (without having to buy a new set) put me off and I got the 16-35 VR.

I got the 24-70G and love it. Doesn't have VR but didn't see the need to spend $500 extra on the new version. Really happy with the lens, very sharp and focus is very quick!

Since I got the 200f2 I hardly ever use the 70-200 myself. That one might go on the chopping block.

I just moved over to the Nikon D810 from the Canon 6D and I am blown away by the difference in DR! I know that isn't a fair comparison of cameras, but the sensors really do make a difference. I love Canon lenses, but Canon camera bodies to me just can't compare for what I like to shoot. I struggle with the button layout on Nikon for sure, but I am getting there. Both are fabulous systems, but I am not sorry that I made the jump so far. Here is a quick example that would have taken me several shots to achieve on my 6D and only needed 1 shot on the D810. I know that this is not to everyone's taste (HDR), but I did it to test the capabilities not for artistic approval. I am glad to see the incredible photography on here and hope to get even more out of my camera as I learn more about it.

Nikon D810 with Nikon 14-24mm 2.8 lens. Few LR adjustments-> DXO Optics Pro for lens corrections -> Aurora HDR Pro. Total time about 3 minutes.

Now I need to update my signature with my Nikon gear now that I am here to stay!


asenna wrote in post #17866133 (external link)
Here is another example where I intentionally underexposed again just to see how the D810 could handle the noise and DR capability. I could never have got this result with my Canon 6D in less than 1 minute in LR by just moving a few global sliders and doing the lens correction. If I took a few minutes in DXO Optics Pro I could really make it better.

I am very happy with this camera and the lenses I purchased so far. I would love to find a good filter solution for the Nikon 14-24mm for ND and CPL. I have looked at Lee, NISI and Haida, but not sure which way to go yet?

WOW! I'm curious how the DR and shadow recovery is on the D7200? More online with my budget. Sure it's not quite to that level. Anyone have an example though?

I got my first DSLR last year and already I'm looking forward to upgrading. I had my heart set on the Canon 5DM3, but after looking at the Nikon D810 I was blown away by how much it outperformed the Canon. Looks like I'll be sticking with Nikon!

I once had a D7000 which was almost that good despite being a DX. Deepest shadows pushed 4 or 5 stops (so dark that even with that much push the are was still very dark) suffered a bit with chroma noise.

Wise choice, you won't get to many comments agreeing here since it is historically a Canon site but the D810 absolutely smokes the 5D3 :)

That's your opinion I'm guessing but in the broader scheme of things, it depends on what you want from the camera. If all you want is high resolution and 13 odd stops of DR at base ISO then yes, the D810 is quite a bit better.

I don't think it's a small thing where an underexposed shot on the Canon would be unsalvageable, could likely be on the Nikon. Especially considering the fact that in photography as I understand it, shooting thousands of images is worth it to get the one "money shot".
