Bob, that is a good idea. It is funny, here in Milwaukee, my wife and I keep hoping for more sub-zero weather so we can practice walking and doing things with layers of cloths, etc. I am out seeing what works in handling the gloves, etc. Thanks for commenting.
Anthony, I agree this one came out pretty fine. I already know the D600 is great, but this was the first outing with the 20mm AF-D f2.8 and I was pleased with the results. I believe it will be used a lot not only of the Northern Lights trip to Alaska, but also for other landscape efforts. Thanks for commenting.
Thanks for commenting, David. Unfortunately, while I did use some film long ago and have occasionally done so recently, I have not thought of that comparison so much. I must look at it further. I know that both the D700 and, now, this D600 perform exceptionally well in low light. Eventually, I am sure I will have some thought about comparing both of them.
Thank you for your nice word. I hope first that I see the northern lights and second, to capture some images like those I have seen done by others. They are indeed magical. I expect it will be a first rate experience in chasing the light.
Good luck on the light chasing! Found this thread while looking for a lens correction profile, got a D600 and finally get to use my old fav the 20mm f2.8 again! It is a fantastic lens and should be great for aurora action. I had to send my D600 back to Nikon TWICE as it stopped focusing with the AF-D lenses, hope you never deal with that!!!
