No problem, Tigerkn. Gotcha.

Yeah, it doesn't focus breath like the Nikon VR II. :) I just upgraded to the 5DIII for its autofocus with wide aperture lenses and the lens selection. I frequently use other photographers' lenses like the 85mm f/1.2 II and the 50mm f/1.2 so the cross type focus points come in handy for those as well as my Sigma 35mm f/1.4. Hoping to purchase the 85LII for myself in the upcoming here. D700 would focus search or misfocus for me with Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G, 85mm f/1.4G, not exactly cheap lenses, y' know? I think it has to do with the cross type points.

Never got rid of my Nikon kit, it has its places like whenever I need to slum it up, or whenever I need to lend it out to my brother, or when I'm shooting sports I can use a d3 (EN-EL4) battery in the battery grip to boost the fps to 8 and the autofocus speed because of the higher voltage. I can raise the shadows a bit more, but honestly I don't find the need anymore since I learned proper techniques for exposure blending with landscape, and the colors are a little bit harder to get right straight out of camera. The 5DIII frustrates me sometimes because it looks too good out of the camera, there isn't that much fixing for me to do! :mad:

Such a wonderful problem to have :). Now just upgrade your 7D to 7D2 then get all the Nikon out of the door and you are no longer in the darkside :).

Haha, yes, first-world problems to the extreme. I'll get a 7D2 eventually, actually holding out for the 5D4, but the Nikon stuff is nice to hold onto as a backup-backup. Worth more to me than its resell value as it has its sentimental value for getting me through my college and photojournalism years.

The composition is very similar in each one. They are very nearly centered in each one. Don't be afraid of negative space or putting them in different positions within the frame.

Love them, and to the people saying to crop them, it's up to you, it's all personal preference.
