Very nice, Echo. They look like Canon colors. Are you cranking up the the colors and contrast?

Yes I am. I'm trying to get the Canon 'look', takes more work but I'm getting closer to what I have in my head. Lightroom is a big help.

it does appear good, mine came a week or so ago. haven't used it yet, but it's here.

Have you used your 70-200 yet? I'm thinking of shifting my 35 f/1.4 budget to one as the 24-70 is so good.

I have always said that I thought Canon's colors were different than Nikon's, and have always been told that I am crazy. At least I now know that I am not the only one that see's it.

I sold my 50 1.8G. I really liked it, but just found it to not be my prefered focal length. After I get settled into my new place I am going to go out and pick up a new 35 1.8G. Also, I am excited to try out a friends 24 1.4G. I've never used top of the line Nikon glass, so I am curious to see how much of a difference it makes when comparing it to budget glass like the 35 1.8 when a novice uses it.

You're not crazy, Canon and Nikon do render colors differently and this is even more apparent with camera produced JPGs. One of the reasons I switched to Canon was the color rendition. With the latest versions of ACR/LR that became a non-issue and I eventually decided to go back to Nikon.

Don't try the 24 1.4G, you will be addicted to the 3D look!! :lol:

I have only shot jpegs since I started playing with dslr's a few years ago. I have just recently started shooting RAW, and have yet to edit any raw files in Lightroom. I am excited to get lightroom and see what kind of results I get.

I only sold the 50 1.8G because it wasnt the right focal length. I'm on a crop, so it is too long for a walk around lens (the 35 1.8 was perfect for that) and too short for anything else I do. I much prefer telephoto lenses, so the 50 was too short to really make me happy.

But I will decently post up some pictures. Hopefully it will be within the next month or so.

Rick_reno and Echo: As new D800 owners, what do you so far like and dislike about the D800? What do you miss about the 5D2 and Canon? (I'm assuming you both used a 5D2).

I'm debating between the D800 and the 5D3. If the 5D3 has the dynamic range the D800 does, the decision is easy - 5D3 hands down because I have a fantastic set of Canon lenses. D800's DR keeps drawing me to it. The huge 36MP is a non-factor. In fact, I think it's too much. And I assume the AF are about equal.

I have the 5dc and the d800. Both are great systems, but the amount of dynamic range you can wrangle out of the d800 raw files are astounding. My 5dc crumples apart and while you can use heavy noise reduction on the shadows you loose so much detail. The d800 files give noiseless shadows in comparison and retain all the detail.

I sold all of my canon lenses and switched to nikon. The d800 is the camera I have always wanted. I don't foresee myself upgrading any time soon. Had I went with the 5dmkIII, in 3 years when canon finally catches up in the dynamic range department, I would most definitely be lusting after a new camera once again. The d800 will last me as long as it will last!
