I wish they'd do this across their entire line. Probably would be cheaper for them to do since they can buy the part/mechanism in bulk.

Considering the cost/performance ratio of the latest SD cards I think this will be the norm unless they try to push XQD cards which are completely unnecessary and I think would set off howls of protests if they tried to implement them in smaller bodies.

When I quickly saw the image I assumed it was one of K6AZ's expired film shots. :lol:

Then I saw it was not from K6AZ, and it wasn't shot with a film camera. :)

I actually kinda like the "velvia" look which is why I ended up with that image which is somewhat similar to Leica.

There is no substitute for Velvia saturation. Get a F100, they're dirt cheap and there are several on FM right now.

I thought about it but after their 16-28 with flare issues and the 82mm filter threads I decided to go with the 16-35 VR since I already have a good set of 77mm filters. It does seem to be better than the 16-28 for flare, see samples here:

Thant dont look to bad. im not one to shoot right into the sun, so its not a big deal.

I've been looking at that one. Looks to be just about as sharp as the 16-35 VR. So if you can do without VR, it's a great cheap alternative.

Ive blown my budget for gear, so i might just have to try it out. Not finding many photos taking with the tokina. One from the 24-85 kit lens.

It doesn't. The 16-28 was bad, if the sun was anywhere in the sky there was terrible flare. If you already have 82mm filters or don't mind picking them up the 17-35 looks like it's worth a try.

Thanks Julian. :) Those are cherry blossom trees. I'll visit them this next April once the flowers are in full bloom.

Do you guys trust Transcend cards? Amazon has a gold box deal on them. I hear the brand is in line with Sandisk (my first choice), Lexar (if they are on sale).

edit: I've been noticing 64GB size cards are over priced. I can get 2-3 32GB cards for the price of 1 of those...

I have several of their smaller SD cards. Meet the rated speed and never any problem with them.

I'm thinking it will take a while because of the backlash from the pro's......

I just and had a look at those cards. I can never have enough cards, thinking about picking up some of those 45/85MB/s cards, the 16GB and 32GB are really a good deal.

I took these with the D600 in an old cemetery. Kind of creepy shooting in the middle of the night. But it was fun.....
