If youre still up, how much does a 400/2.8 AF-i normally go for?
Off to read your blog now
Whats up with those reds? Is it because of AdobeRGB?
employee or retail?
I don't really know.. probably? Not too good on the technical computer side of things
So you dont think anything above 4000 is ok?
Would you not consider this picture ok?
AF-i, not AF-s. The older AF version. I saw one for sale for 2800?
ah, I have no idea, sorry
never really look at fast long primes because I've never wanted one
200-400 is gonna be rad when it finally arrives. I was borrowing this one from a newspaper shooter
4000 ISO is amazing, but the colors don't look all that great from what I've seen.. saturation/gradients are gone
Si you find fault with that picture?
I don't think the color is very nice.
I'm not a nikon guy, but those results look awesome. Also, please let me shoot with you at a game.
Is the VRII worth the extra few hundred over the VRI? My friend is looking to get a 70-200 and I figured Id ask.
VRII, zoom ring perfection make it worth it.
Its DEFINITELY worth it if youre shooting FX.
If youre shooting DX and dont use VR very much, Id say no. It all depends on how much use you think you will get out of the extra stops.
Oh word, FF it's almost a no brainer.
Tell him to stay futureproof brah, he'll shoot FF eventually.
D3s and 70-200 v2 and you're still getting motion blur???
You convinced him...he's on his way to get it now, lol
that stick is moving about 11tybillion miles per hour in that shot. Wrist shot flex FTMFW.
I have a game tonight. These shots got me all psyched up...
You can't truly freeze hockey natural light, even with 1/2500s, which would require like 12000ISO
Very impressive. The camera to me... the lens too, but I won't be lusting for that for a good while. The first version has served me well.
Same here, works fine with the D300 anyway
FF vignette, when your background is ice, is insanely apparent though
but in my world, I don't notice it often enough to drop this one and go buy a $2500 lens that does (pretty much) the same thing!!!
