My personal impressions on selected gear

Given you buy something, is that really worth the money ? From my point of view it depends. For example, lately I am using very cheap, old lenses, +20 years or so, mainly AiS. What I found is that the quality they deliver is a very good match to the most modern ones but just almost two grands less in price. On the other side, I have a 24-70 f/2.8 and the 14-24, both stellar and modern. So it really depends. Anyway, let’s find out some of my impressions.

But what surprises will bring this Holiday Season ? Another D800 or D700x for Nikon gear hunters ? Another AF-S lens ? Maybe a […]

Cat on a hot thin spoof

Ok, finally I bit. Considering the approaching holiday season, the closing in of the Christmas time, I jumped the ship to a different league and got myself a D700. Almost a year ago, I wrote a review after I spent a couple of days with a D700. Quite reluctant to spend at that time, but […]

Considerations about D300

D300

Until recently I had a D80 and I also wrote a review about it. So I think it would be useful for you, D80 owners and D300 prospect buyers, to have some clues about what this D300 is about from a former D80 user. I will update my review as I’ll be getting into more […]
