The mob, Richmond chapter. :lol:

I would have just ignored the person which I'm sure you did. If someone politely asks me not to I would apologize and move on. It's much easier to do this in tourist areas where everyone has a camera anyway.

One of mine taken with a D800.

Shooting street with a 28mm you really need to get into people's faces otherwise it just looks too disconnected.

People aren't my interest down there, the historical architecture is. Problem is people are unavoidable and there is always one in a crowd who gets nervous when they see a camera that could be used by the media.

Couple of good reviews I found - 1st one compares Nikon 85 1.8G to the Nikon 1.4G

http://photographylife​.com/reviews/nikon-85mm-f1-8g (external link)

next one compares Nikon 50 1.8F with a few other Nikon 50mm's and a Sigma 50mm

http://photographylife​.com/reviews/nikon-50mm-f1-8g (external link)

Something I must have missed in other reviews of this lens is this tidbit....

Since the rear lens element moves in and out during focusing, get used to rotating the focus ring to the infinity mark before mounting or dismounting the lens.

thanks for the link Rick. the bokeh's on the 50mm are rather nasty from the sigma. the nikon G's are light but still there. looks like the 1.8D is the best. wonder if canon mount does the same.

I say that about the DX lenses because is Nikon trying to push the FX sensors on the lower bodies? Say like in 3-5 years from now where can you see the DX format going?

There are advantages and disadvantages with both formats. As the sensor technology improves I'm seeing a finer and finer line between APS-C and FX/FF. I could take a set of images with the D800 and D7000, strip the EXIF and I'd be willing to bet out of ten images no one would be able to nail them.

I think I’ll hold off on 105VR. D600 pissed me off so bad with it’s oily/dusty sensor that I’m returning it. RMA has been issued but I asked for a refund this morning...
hope they will refund me because I’m thinking of getting a D800E. If I will get an approval on a refund, I’m ordering a D800E, RRS L-Plate and grip by tonight. Kinda excited...

You don't know how to clean your camera sensor? Shame. :lol:

Received my 50mm f/1.8G today, just did some quick shots outside. Love it so far, looks like it's performing well. Here's a shot @ f/1.8:

I did a blue sky shot today at f/16 with my D600, and now there are only 4 visible dust spots near the corners. I can handle 4, not 40 :lol:

Cleaning did the trick.

Was out with my 24pc-e today - need to get a 21 zf for those really "sharp" landscapes... dont get me wrong I love the lens but there is no match to what i got from the 1dsmk3 and 21 ze.... also the screen on the d800 is really bad for focusing in daylight (live view that is...) hate to say it but tomorrow i bring my zacuto for a photograph...

That's why I bought a SmallHD monitor.

It's really not that hard and a simple tutorial from youtube can give you a better idea. Eventually, the excessive lubrication will go away. It's not like it has infinite amount of oil in there. Once the oil spots are removed, that D600 will be a very good camera that is priced just right.

For critical focus? I will gladly go through the inconvenience. It will also be handy with low to the ground comps where viewing the LCD on the cam was a pita.

I'm aware of the issue. It's easy to clean the sensor. What's the big deal?

You don't know Elijah. If the box is dented on the corner, he returns it! :lol::lol:
