I just took delivery of a brand-new Nikon 500mm f/4 AFS G VR Nikkor telephoto lens. I thought I’d unbox it on-air and discuss why I purchased it, and how it fits into my lineup. I also compare telephoto lens options, including 400mm and 600mm and zooms.

I purchased this lens from Berger Bros.; I highly recommend them as they are a pleasure to work with.

Sensor Plane Podcast #11: Nikon D810

Hands-on with the Nikon D810

I just received a new Nikon D810, which I bought from site sponsor B&H Photo. Although I’ve only had the camera in my hands for a few hours, I like it a lot. On paper, there aren’t that many discriminators between it and the D800/e. The D810 has a new sensor that dispenses with the Optical Low-Pass (OLP) filter entirely for ridiculously sharp images with amazing detail and resolution. In reality, these differences are quite small as compared to my D800e which used some technical trickery to “eliminate” the OLP filter.  In this episode of The Sensor Plane, I discuss my rationale for upgrading and compare the D810 with my other cameras. Stay tuned until the end where I offer some tips for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom!

Why did I choose to upgrade? As usual, it’s in the details. While no single feature of the D810 blows me away, it’s the sum of the parts that really makes this a solid upgrade. More importantly, it’s how this camera fits into my kit that sold me on it. Continue reading Sensor Plane Podcast #11: Nikon D810
