anyone have any experience with the Nikon 200mm f2? I'm interested in it.

I've seen some samples from it that are jaw dropping. I haven't had a chance to shoot with one personally though. It is highly regarded from everything I've read.

Rented version 1 a couple of times. Fast, sharp as hell and just generally all-around badass.

The D600 is working very well for me in Death Valley. But my sensor is already very dirty. I don't change lenses often, and it's not windy here at all. Have no idea how it's gotten this dirty already. The stock sensor cleaning process doesn't help much. Is this just something I have to get used to with full frame?

Interesting. I've never cleaned my D700's sensor myself in 2.5 years (it's been in for service twice). While I almost never stop down past f8, I've also never noticed visible dust/muck in my shooting.

I know this is a dumb question but are you sure the self-cleaner thingamajig is on?

Eh I see it's already been diagnosed. I should've known. ;)

Really beautiful fall colors. I'm jealous.

Guess I'll have to send it in. Probably won't be using it much in the next couple of months anyway. Here's one from today in John Muir Wilderness:

Looks like a painting!

The only half-decent photography I've done lately is of a freshly-washed car. :p

I agree. That 200mm f2 VR just spanks my 70-200mm f2.8 VRII. IQ and bokeh are just simply amazing. It accepts TCs very well even the 2x TCIII to get a 400mm f4.

The context was modern CPU lenses. We were discussing lenses such as the 17-35.

The 17-35mm have aperture ring. If I had that lens, I would use the aperture ring. I use the aperture ring on all lenses that have it, also "modern CPU lenses".

On D1-series, D200, D2-series, D300, D3-series, D700, D7000, D4, D800, D600 this is an option in the menu.

You should remove the license plates when doing car photos. Otherwise, I like these.

Thanks! It's starting to get chilly though. And I hate the cold weather. :p

It seems as if we're going off into semantics here. While you may use the aperture ring most people don't and prefer to have the camera control the aperture. I started having no choice and spent many years adjusting apreture with the ring and I don't see the need to play with the ring when the camera can do so.

El Duderino,

That is a gorgeous photo. If you've got wall space you need that printed large.

According to Nikon Rumors, the new 70-200 F4 VR will be 5 stops as opposed to 4 with the current models.
