But the 50 1.8G is like 3x the performance/ build quality of the canon's 50 1.8
You get what you pay for ;)

Btw both canon 50 f/1.8 and 50 f/1.4 is like 20+ years old already! Guess why they never bother to update them :lol:

yep! but if people want to compare, Nikon does come off as a tad more expensive. but of course, i think were getting more out of it by paying a lil bit more.

Having just made the switch myself this year I can honestly say there seems to be very little in it.

I like the Nikons because they feel better for me and I like the way they are set out. Lenses are amazing, but then again so are Canon's L series. I have not played with Nikons newest stuff (the 28 1.8 etc) but can tell you that their prime lineup is amazing.

I think sometimes people get bogged down in minor issues, either brand has some amazing stuff and it's really up to what feels better for you. I have found Nikon to be a little pricier but not by a great deal. The 24-70 goes for $300 more for the Nikon variant in Australia for example, the 70-200 is $100 more and the 35mm 1.4 is actually $100 cheaper. This is all just from one store so the difference is marginal.

This is with a D3s and 16-35mm f/4 VR.

As far as 35mm film goes some is no longer made and what you can get is getting harder to process.

True. 95% of my pix are B&W film which I develop & scan. I'm still using Agfa APX 100 (got stacks of it) and Tri-X. I only use the digital cameras for family snaps and such. Personally I just really like the look of a silver gelatin print.

That's one area where I still find film useful. I just don't like B&W digital conversions. Our local camera store had processed film since 1948 and they finally gave up. They told me that I was one of a handful of people still submitting film to them and it was no longer worth it to them.

Sacrilege!

You dare post a Canon picture in a Nikon thread of a Canon forum? :D

PS Spectacular shot by the way...

Hehe! If you followed the conversation, they were talking about DOF and diffraction. My photo was an example to show that you don't need f22 to get everything in focus. ;)

He's still getting use to being a Nikon owner. :lol:

You got that right! ;) Although, I love the customization.

Speaking of film and Nikon someone just posted an F100 with some lenses on the FS forum. One of the best film bodies Nikon produced considering price/performance.

If you all were in the market for a Nikon 300/2.8, which would you buy...

Nikon 300mm f/2.8 VR II - USA NEW - $5799
Nikon 300mm f/2.8 VR I - Grey market NEW - $4799
Nikon 300mm f/2.8 VR I - USED "E-" Condition (Adorama) - $3999

The difference between the two versions besides the VR tech is the VR II version comes with the Nano crystals.

Of course you don't need f/22 if you have a 17mm lens on a FF!

At f/6.3 your hyperfocal distance is already only 1.5m. You get focus from 0.75m to infinity.

At f/22 you "gain" an extra 53cm on the near end. :lol:


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

Here's a couple from D800 + 16-35mm VR...the first pic really took advantage of the D800's dynamic range, the right hand side was extremely dark, and the top left almost white!

I'm seriously considering picking up this camera. I shoot Primarily landscapes and would love the 36mp and the DR seen in your first picture. Great shots btw :)

I'm pretty sure my mind is made up, I will keep my Canon set up and just build a new Nikon set up.
Been researching a lot online about a few of the lenses but hard to find a place as good as this forum for lens samples.
I'm looking at the 14-24mm f2.8G ED AF-S &
the 24-70mm f2.8G ED AF-S. Any thoughts on these or any samples? Any help is much appreciated. :)
