Nikon 85mm lens comparison - tested with D800!

Nikon 85mm lens comparison - tested with D800! | "Cameras, Camcorders, Pictures, HDR, Gadgets, Films, Movies, Landscapes" | Scoop.it
Nikon currently offers three 85mm prime lenses: the ageing AF 85mm f1.8D, the new AF-S 85mm f1.8G, and the largest aperture AF-S 85mm f1.4G, but if you're in the market for a fast short telephoto lens, which one will end up being best for you?

Nikon D800 Review

Nikon D800 Review | "Cameras, Camcorders, Pictures, HDR, Gadgets, Films, Movies, Landscapes" | Scoop.it

"We've just posted our Nikon D800 review. At 36MP, the D800 is the highest resolution camera you can buy without making the step up to medium format, it's also one of the first DSLRs to offer uncompressed video output. Despite these drastic increases in capability over the D700, Nikon's latest full-frame offering will be immediately familiar to any one who's shot with one of the company's high-end cameras. So what's the D800 like to shoot with and does all that resolution render its competition redundant?

We've recently received a reviewable D800E - the more expensive variant with a self-cancelling low-pass filter, to allow the capture of even higher resolution. We've covered the camera in the review but will be extending the coverage when we've had a chance to fully test it."

Nikkor AF-S 85mm f/1.8 G (DX) - Review / Lab Test Report

Nikkor AF-S 85mm f/1.8 G (DX) - Review / Lab Test Report | "Cameras, Camcorders, Pictures, HDR, Gadgets, Films, Movies, Landscapes" | Scoop.it

"Nikon continues to update its range of affordable fast primes with the new Nikkor AF-S 85mm f/1.8 G. While the existing screw driven AF-D lens was not a bad performer, Nikon's decision to remove the screw drive from its entry-level DX cameras made the lens a rather unattractive choice for the majority of their customers.
Consequently, the new model now offers a silent wave AF drive, which makes it compatible with the complete range of current Nikon DSLRs.

Even though 85mm traditionally is a classic portrait focal length on full frame cameras and the new AF-S 85 f/1.8 is of course a FX lens, the largest pressure to update the lens may have come from DX customers. So, in this review, we'll have a look at how the lens performs on our current DX test camera, the Nikon D7000, where it is the equivalent of roughly a 130/2.8 lens. As such it doesn't leave its original scope (portraiture)."

NIKON D4 Preview

Here is a Preview of the Nikon D4 that I made after getting a chance to spend some time with this camera. There are so many amazing features that have been added to this new DSLR. The ISO capability has gotten better once again and this is the first Nikon Pro camera to take a leap into serious video making territory.

Nikon 1 lenses get DxO marked

Nikon 1 lenses get DxO marked | "Cameras, Camcorders, Pictures, HDR, Gadgets, Films, Movies, Landscapes" | Scoop.it
The test results for the Nikon 1 lenses from DxO Mark are out. Currently there is no equivalent data from other manufacturers for a meaningful comparison – this will become more interesting once the Nikon 10mm f/2.8 lens ($249) can be put side by side with the Sony 16mm f/2.8 ($249) and Olympus 17mm f/2.8 ($249) lenses.

Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 EX OS HSM (FX) - Review / Test Report

Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 EX OS HSM (FX) - Review / Test Report | "Cameras, Camcorders, Pictures, HDR, Gadgets, Films, Movies, Landscapes" | Scoop.it

The product life cycle of a lens usually covers several years, if not a decade or even more. As with any rule, there are exceptions, and the Sigma EX 70-200/2.8 is certainly one of them. The initial product was launched back in 1998, when Sigma introduced the EX 70-200/2.8 APO as one of the first lenses to carry the "EX" designation. That lens remained a current product for 7 years. From 2005 onwards however, Sigma's product managers switched into fast pace mode. The Sigma 70-200/2.8 EX OS HSM, announced in 2010, is the 4th update to the initial product within less than 5 years:

2005: Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM 2006: Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro HSM 2007: Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro HSM II 2010: Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM

The latest upgrade adds optical stabilization (OS), a feature that has been offered by the original manufacturer's lenses for quite some time now. With this feature added, Sigma currently is the only 3rd party manufacturer that can fully compete in this segment with Nikon and Canon, at least on paper.

In this review we'll have a look at how the lens performs on our current FX test camera, the Nikon D3x.

Nikkor AF 180mm f/2.8 D ED (FX) - Review / Test Report

Nikkor AF 180mm f/2.8 D ED (FX) - Review / Test Report | "Cameras, Camcorders, Pictures, HDR, Gadgets, Films, Movies, Landscapes" | Scoop.it

When thinking of fast tele lenses, most people no doubt think about the professional grade 70-200mm f/2.8 zooms first. These lenses nowadays offer very high quality, but they do have a few drawbacks, too: they are large, heavy and quite expensive.
For those who are willing to trade the flexibility of a zoom lens for portability and lower price, a fast tele prime can be an alternative. One such lens is the Nikon AF-D 180mm f/2.8 ED, which is part of Nikon's product line for quite a while now. The original AF version was introduced in 1986 and updated to the still current AF-D version in 1994. The Nikon AF-D 180 costs less than the pro-grade f/2.8 zooms, however it's still not exactly a cheap lens and currently retails for around 850 EUR.

In this review, we'll have a look at how the lens performs on our FX test camera, the Nikon D3x.

D7000 dissection

D7000 dissection | "Cameras, Camcorders, Pictures, HDR, Gadgets, Films, Movies, Landscapes" | Scoop.it

Everyone seemed to enjoy my destruction of an NEX camera a couple of weeks ago. I made the statement in that post that it was amazing how simple and clean the camera was compared to even a small SLR. So, of course, a number of people then wanted me to open up an SLR so they could see the difference. Having matured only marginally since 3rd grade, I had no choice except to rise to the challenge once someone said “bet you won’t take an SLR apart like that”.

So, yesterday a D7000 got a nasty scratch on the sensor. It was already an older camera and Nikon has upped prices on sensor replacements to the point it wasn’t economically worthwhile to replace it. So it was time to go get some useful parts. Why? Because with the Nikon parts shortage we can sell the parts for more than the camera. (Anybody besides me seeing the coincidence of “Nikon will no longer sell parts to independent repair shops” and Nikon repair prices going up? Just me? OK, well I’ll up my medication again.)

"It’s winter. It’s slow. We get bored. We have lots of stuff to play with. Too much stuff and too much time leads to all kinds of trouble. I mean experimenting to find combinations of equipment that might benefit our customers. So anyway, Joey decided it would be a superb idea to take a tiny little Nikon V1 mirrorless camera with it’s 2.7 crop factor and put it on the back of a Nikon 600mm f4 VR with a 2X teleconverter.

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 200 mm f/2G ED VRII review

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 200 mm f/2G ED VRII review | "Cameras, Camcorders, Pictures, HDR, Gadgets, Films, Movies, Landscapes" | Scoop.it

"Fast, journalistic telephoto lenses with fixed focal lengths are expensive devices because, in their cases, every manufacturer strives to offer everything the best. The Nikon company is not an exception to that rule and already at the beginning of the era of digital detectors so in 2001-2004 they offered their customers a whole series of fast “primes” with focal lengths ranging from 200 to 600 mm, which parameters are presented in the following chart.
As you see, although the lenses were designed in accordance with contemporary standards they featured high quality optics and coatings; however, the longest three came without optical stabilization. It is a serious flaw in this class of focal lengths and Nikon certainly knew something had to be done, especially that Canon was already offering the same lenses with stabilization. That’s why in 2007 three successors featuring 400, 500 and 600 mm focal length were released. The 200 and 300 mm lenses could wait longer as they had a stabilization system and were launched later (the 2.0/200 not so long ago because only in 2004). The time has come for them too, though. In 2009 we saw the new 2.8/300 and in September 2010, the new 200 mm. Currently the whole line-up of long, fast primes presents itself this way.
Although all of these lenses are very interesting, the 2/200 model remains perhaps the most versatile one. It is huge but its dimensions still allow to take hand-held photos and even go for a walk with it. It doesn’t necessarily have to be used for journalistic photography only because in the studio, on full frame, it will be great as a tool for more close-up portraits as well. With 1.7x or 2.0 converters it can be used as well for nature photography and also it is a great astrophotography tool, with or without converters, as its huge front element with the active surface of 10 cm is able to gather a lot of light, and a flat, well-corrected field ensures you point-like images of stars across the frame.
It seems we started to praise this lens even before we tested it...does it really deserve it at all? Let’s find out and enjoy the lecture of the next chapters!"
