Example of the power of "ETTL" (expose to the left) to maintain reasonable highlights, then recover deep shadows, at ISO 100:

Wouldn't dare try that on any Canon.

Reason why I shoot film ;)

For anyone on the fence, there's a $300 instant rebate on the D800e at B&H. It includes $194 of accessories and a 4% store credit making it $2,683 net. It's a pretty good deal.

We all know about the Nikon 14-24, 24-70 and 70-200, but what is the Nikon holy trinity prime equivalent to the Canon 35L/85L/135L?

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Ive aksed this before but not on this thread and its hard to get straight answers sometimes when not praising Canon. How does the 24-70 and the 70-200 compare to canons top of the line zooms in that range? If Nikon continues to improve on the sensor design and the lenses are equal or better than I have nothing to lose by changing systems as i am wanting to upgrade both body and lenses.

I've never used the 24-70 f/2.8 or 70-200 f/2.8 but I'm sure they're comparable. Hear nothing but good things about those lenses.

Nikon has the 28, 50, 85 1.8's that can be had for less than $1500 combined. Tests show (DxO Mark) that these are some of the better primes available for Nikon.

Otherwise, Sigma A 35 > 35L/35G, 85L = 85G and 135L > 135D. Rumors of a new 135/1.8 Nikon are out there as well.

You will find them to be very similar although the Nikon 70-200 will suffer more focus breathing than the Canon. Plus the Canon can focus at shorter distances. Sharpness wise they are both as good as it gets. Same goes for the 24-70's.

I've had the 85L II, 35L and 24-70 from Canon. Wasn't that crazy about the 85L, loved the 35L and 24-70. The Nikon 24-70 is a stellar copy, don't know if they're all this good but it easily out shines the Canon I had, and it was very good. My Nikon 24-70 is very sharp. Replaced the 85L with the 85 1.8G, was going to go with the 85 1.4 but everything I found suggested on the D800 the 85 1.8 was better. It also is excellent. If I were going to go with a 35, I'd probably go with the Sigma 35 1.4. I haven't (yet) gone that route, but all the reports I see on the newer Sigma is it's excellent.
All in all, the Canon lenses I've replaced with Nikon have not been a disappointment.

For those of you with websites, how many images do you put into your portfolio? Obviously you only want to put a few of the very best images up, but you also dont want people to think that you havent shot enough to give enough examples.

What is your "magical" number?
