Took the kids to the zoo yesterday. Of course, I decided not to be content with the compact LX3, and opted for the D700. For the train trip, I attached the 18-200, with good results.

And in the zoo itself, I used the 80-400VR. But it's not that I wanted to write about: when we arrived, I used AUTO ISO for the first time in my life, 200-6400, minimum speed 1/250. And I am quite happy about the results, even in JPEG (I limited myself to it, I don't see how or when I could PP 300 images ). That is what I have always expected from a digital camera, but on D200 and D70, the ISO above 800 or 400 were not good enough, while on the D300, they are quite usable up to 1600 but I had never thought of using them!

End of my little morning bewilderment!

Jetez un oeil à ma galerie if you feel like it! And it's a bit void as of now, but I also have a Nikonians blog

Auta i lomë! And my Nikon's only awaiting daylight...
