3 day rent starting this Friday.
Will definitely be using / trying the 105mm on my Nikon D700 and also my Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 G, 24-70mm and 70-200mm on the Nikon Df. Will only have these for the weekend so not a hole lotta time to use all the different combinations but will definitely try to make the most. Will see.
Not final but am seriously considering for the next week.
It’ll be fun to try the 200-400mm on my D700 but even more fun will be to try my different lenses on the D5.
I was thrilled that it came – a day early. I rented it from LenRentals.com and to maximize I requested the equipment to arrive Friday. But LensRentals had actually shipped it a day early just so that it would definitely make it to me on time.
Thank you LensRentals.
The equipment was shipped via FedEx and since I was not sure I was going to be home to receive it, I requested it to be held at a local Kinkos / FedEx office and was able to pick it up within minutes of it arriving.
Unfortunately for me, I had not realized that I would be needing a much, much faster storage media. Right off the bat the two 16Gb card I had planned on using did not work. I rushed and got what I considered a very fast card (SONY 64Gb UHS-1 SDXC) but that too was not fast enough. Even though I was able to shoot with it, it was taking too long to be useful. I went out a second time to find something faster and finally after 5 whole hours of having gotten the equipment in my hand I was able to shoot. Then came the challenge of being able to “manually set” and view that my settings stuck.
Next I had the challenge of copying the few images I had taken to my computer and then have them uploaded.
I am happy that I feel I have got the whole workflow, for the most part, down and am now ready to shoot.
I rented the Olympus E-M10 with 2 lenses. A 75mm prime and a 12-40mm zoom. Here are a few sample shots.
