I'll be getting another DSLR soon. D7k and the 35mm f/1.8 dx. I know you have the exact setup docta and it's great. Never used one of those lenses and was pretty blown away today with my friends. That thing stays sharp as a tack at f/1.8, didn't notice any c/a either. My 50mm gets soft at f/2. Can't wait to get my new stuff.

I think it actually gets sharper. If it's the 1.8D, it's sharpest at like f/5.6

Well at f/8 or so it's sharp as a tack. But I know that its performance isn't nearly as good wide open as the 35mm. Wish I picked yours up when you were selling it! I'll be ordering my camera next week, can't wait to start shooting again.

When I had a crop sensor I really liked the 35mm. The perspective is more like a 50mm on a full frame.

What I carry in my backpack(s),



D600, 50mm f1.4, 20mm f2.8, SB600 & nikon cleaning kit.
Reverse side of the pouch has enough room for both chargers (flash and camera batteries) extra batteries for both, 2x sd cards, and my remote.
Missing my tripod from the picture, Oben CT3500.
Saving for an 80-200 f2.8 as well as a 60mm f2.8 macro to round out my kit.
Having a digital again is really nice.

How easy is it to nail focus with the manual lenses? Do you use AF confirm in the viewfinder?

I did it for over a year without even realizing the af indicator even existed. Still isn't as easy as an SLR viewfinder.

Edit: how is the d600?

Absolutely perfect.
Every time I handle it I like it more haha.
And Jens I've been using manual solely on an FM10 for the last 2+ years so it isn't really anything to get used to. Only time it can be somewhat difficult is all the way down at f1.4 since there is so little margin for error.

Are you having any problems with dust/oil on the D600 sensor?  I've heard lots of complaints.

Also, hoping KatzEye comes out with some screens for the new Nikon bodies.  I just bought a new body and all my lenses are of the AIS variety.  Hearing you are having good luck with the focus indicator is good news.

The problem with all the digital bodies (and bodies after the F3 I think), is that the viewfinder only shows f/2.8 - which makes it a bit harder to nail focus when using a faster lens. I like using the live view on the 5D ll, but the Nikon live view is kinda sluggish (refresh rate when 100%). You guys heard of the new Sigma Art line? Their 35mm 1.4 apparently is the sharpest 35 ever tested my DxO, and it's cheaper then the nikon/canon one. Has nicer bokeh too.

About the oil/dust, from what I've read - it disappears on most of them after 3000 shots.

I bought mine refurbished so any existing oil or dust I'm sure was already cleaned off during service.
Saying that, I haven't had any problems at all.

Sold my D70 because I picked up this D2h dirt cheap. I know it seems like a step backwards in mp count but the build quality and comfort puts it leaps ahead in my book.

Just ordered a Sigma 170-500mm APO DG and a black rapid RS-4.

Will post pics with the siggy when it arrives.

 Currently with Sigma 28-105mm
