I hate to bother the D800 forum with D700 news :), but I thought I would share some pics of the Blue Angels Air show this past weekend in Tuscaloosa. I don't do action pics, and I've never shot action photos with the D700, but with the help of a fast shutter, they turned out okay. I normally never, ever crop photos, but I was across the Black Warrior river from the airport (quite a distance), so a LOT of cropping had to be done. I was really impressed with the sharpness of most of these pics (in RAW format). I can only imagine how shots with a D800 would crop! Sorry, I'm not sure how to post a link to the gallery, but that's where they are. I made it to the tail end of the show, just in time for the Blue Angels. I know the real test would be photographing planes with props! It's always a pleasure to read all of the posts. I learn an awful lot from this place!
Man, I love this camera! Oh, they were shot with a 70-200 2.8 II Nikon lens.
