Finally it’s official – Nikon is joining the ever growing Full Frame Mirrorless world. Introducing the Zseries.
First off – the bad news. The Zseries will use a new Z mount lens. Of course there is a mount adapter that can be used to continue to use the older F Mount lenses.
Took these pix at the Pearl Cup Coffee.
- Aperture – f/5.6
- Shutter Speed – 1/60s
- ISO – 400
I recently got a Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 G (DX format) lens so that I can something similar to the 50mm f/1.4 G (FX Format). I have been using it both on my D80 and my D300 and am having a lot of enjoyment.
Here are a few examples.
With my D80:
With Nikon D300
I have rented / borrowed enough equipment over the years that I have come up with a template for comparing the borrowed / rented gear to something I already own. Even if the gear happens to be NOT in the same league as what I already have got.
Usually it is a new lens or camera that I am trying to “compare”, so I pick a similar lens or camera that I already have as the base.
I had rented the Nikkor 105mm f/1.4 recently and though I didn’t exactly take the time to take some comparative shots, if I had the time here is what I probably would have done (or tried to do).
- use my 70-200mm f/2.8 as the base, since 105mm is a setting that I can put my lens at
- use my D700 as the Camera (since my goal is to compare the “lens”)
- find some lowlight scenes to take the comparative shots
