Although I haven't given the Sony A7s a run for it's money, I am just blown away by what all these modern cameras are able to do. Taken with the D750 + Sigma 50 Art. Just sharing an underexposed before and processed in Lightroom After image :)


Yep...the DR and low iso noise level is astonishing in this camera.

Ended up not keeping this camera. It wasn't that much different in high ISO or dynamic range than the 5D3. Its only advantage was that I could raise the shadows quite a bit, but I didn't find it super useful in my workflow. Skin tones and autofocus were better on my 5D3. Preferred my D700's controls.

Literally the reason why many people buy this camera :)
Also the high ISO is cleaner, way better for astro than 5D3 at long exposures :)

On page 11 of this thread I posted a pic of a grandfather clock that was taken at 10,000 ISO that came out pretty good. It was shot at 300mm with a lens that's not considered sharp.

Just a question about fine tuning the camera (D750) is it good to use, instead the middle focus point, the farthest focus point, either the left or right side and do the Dot Tune method? I just feel that my farthest focus point is not sharp compared when I use the middle one.

I think you should tune for the use the camera will see the most or most important

It wasn't a quantum leap like I was expecting from the reviews and the skin tones and autofocus spread were a step back, at least for upmarket wedding work. Changing the ISO lighting up the screen was too much of a nuisance and quirk at the price point. If I shot astro all the time, I'd keep it and the 20 1.8, but I really don't enough to warrant keeping them.

It's definitely not the camera for everyone, and I've heard that about the skin tones. But for a landscape photographer who does a lot of astro, this thing is just amazing. I noticed a huge difference between my 6D and the 750

Ok fellas...I NEED HELP!!!!!

It's not an emergency but its annoying and I can't believe I can't remember how to do this.

BEFORE I sent my camera back for the 2nd recall: When I was in live view I was able to move the focus point around on the screen with the directional pad on the back of the body.
NOW after the return from Nikon I can't and it's driving me NUTS! It's not that I used it to AF ( i usually MF when in LV) but It also metered from that point as well.

HELP!!!!

:-)
