Because of the ability of D800e to go higher ISO I no longer need top Pro lenses.
The first 2 lenses I got 16-35mm F4 and 24-120mm F4 are absolutely fantastic. I posted some samples in another thread.
Today I went to Pro Show in Pasadena and I saw a guy in the Nikon booth who I used to "harass" for many years at CES or PMA about how good Canon cameras are.
Of course I don't do it anymore but I might start "harassing" Canon booth people now. BTW I did not see any even though they are on the list.
Anyway, he did not really recognized me so I had to remind him.
He suggested to try 28-300mm VR and said Nikon can't make enough of them. I don't know about that because price is coming down right now.
So I tried it. I am impressed!!!!! As soon as I got home I found a sale at J&R for $939 and ordered it.
Here are some samples.
They are highly reduced in size. Originals are even better.
I wish this lens was straight F4 but it is OK.
I think D800 makes this lens even better than it is.
All taken wide open and no sharpening in PP.
