Only sad part about these pictures is the ownership of the camera: It was not mine
Here are the shots I was talking about ...partly sponsored by Bill Claff

All were shot with my old AF 20-35 f/2.8 Nikkor

Same shot resized to upload, curves and sharpening applied - Now this is darn impressive for ISO 3200! As good as or slightly better than D200's ISO 400!!!


My oldest lens is 20-35! that's the reason I wanted to check it with D700 for CA

........300% crop:

CA is ever so slightly visible ... this is way better than D200 with the same lens.

Still the lack of ISO 100 is a bit of a concern ....!But I have that bad feeling in my stomach that I might find it very difficult to 'discipline' myself
