Awesome set Lloyd, as usual!
How do you like using the D700? After not getting what I wanted from the new 5d(AF is still the same) I am thinking to compliment my Mark III with Nikon d700, or switch the system all together. So, how is D700 comparing to your other bodies?

I've been waiting anxiously for the 5D2. I was so sure they would put a pro grade focusing system in it, since the D300 had it, and later on, so did the D700. Well, they didn't do that. In fact, Canon said themselves they just took the existing 3 year AF system and plopped it into the 5D2. I was so heartbroken! I picked up the D700 when it came out and planned to switch to the 5D2 when it came out. Now I am forgetting about the 5D2 and keeping the D700. I would rather invest in some Nikon lenses rather than buy the 5D2; it was such a disappointment.

The focusing system is superb on the D700. The AF point placement can only be described as excellent. A total contrast to the 5D series. It's an AWESOME camera but I still do prefer the 1-series over it. I would certainly not drop all my gear to move to Nikon because I don't think Nikon is certainly ahead in the game in the pro arena... the playing field is pretty level now so a full switch would be unwise in my opinion. But I certainly would use them BOTH!!! :)

The 1D and D700 are quite comparable. If I had to have only one, I'd still pick the mark III. There really isn't anything to gain by jumping ship either way at this time.

wonderful photos... :) any camera you do not own at this point? LOL :)

thanks for the nice words dood. And yes, the camera which I do not own (nor have any interest in) is the 5D. For the reasons above. ;)

I use Lightroom 1.3. Only very select images get CS2 love. (Yes, I'm still on CS2. It serves my needs so I have no reason to upgrade) I played with LR2 for a couple minutes and liked what I saw, but I'm not dying to upgrade. I'll probably upgrade to LR2 after I finish my last wedding of the year.

Thanks for your insight Lloyd, your opinion regarded highly in my book!
I ordered the Nikon d700 and 24-70, can't wait to see. The only thing I like more about mark3 is the ability to shoot iso 50, very helpful when you need that right shutter speed to use your flash.
Thanks again, your work is awesome!

Congrats on your purchase! I'm sure you'll love it. It's nice that Nikon is actually capable of producing a 24-70 2.8 that can actually focus correctly. I'm considering ditching my 24-70L for the Nikkor 24-70.
ISO 50 is nice I suppose, but you can always just overexpose one stop and pull it back in RAW editing. I mean, that's basically what the canon cameras do, as ISO50 isn't a native ISO. And there's always ND filters!

Wow amazing pics. I really like your sepia work. Could you share how you convert it?

I really like the expression in #1 but like someone pointed out it's a little bit washed out.

The sepias are all done in Lightroom using the Split Toning sliders. I just played with them until I found something that I liked. Try it, it's fun! :)
