    Sigma 20mm f1.4

    They're a year too late for me! :( I bought my Nikon 20mm f1.8G last December. Had I known Sigma was going to do a f1.4 for only $100 more, I would have probably waited lol

    Which laptop do you all use, and why

    For me, My newly built beast of a desktop is where all my photo work gets done. But I just bought my new laptop about 1 month ago. It was between the Dell XPS 13 2015 and the MBP 13 Retina 2015. I was looking for good mobility with mild editing capability. I ended up trying the MBP 13. It's...

    FS - Nikon 28mm f1.8G

    Calibration Inaccuracy?

    With photography being one of your main goals, I would HIGHLY suggest finding an IPS monitor. They can be had for around $200 dollars, or even slightly less. Most are closer to the $300+ range though. Plus, your Spyder will work much better on an IPS monitor too. Here is an example of an IPS...

    Calibration Inaccuracy?

    Ya! If your monitor only hits 93 nits while running at 100% brightness, I would assume that's a probably your problem. Maybe look into a new monitor? What would be your budget if you were to get a new monitor?

    Calibration Inaccuracy?

    What brightness are you calibrating your monitor to, the recommended 120 nits? Since I never really print, I prefer calibrating to 180 nits because I like that extra brightness. Even at 180 nits, my ASUS PB278Q and Dell P2715Q are only set to 50-55% brightness (I was one of those people who...

    Another D700 thread

    I would go for the D700 at that price. I had the D700 for a few years. I even had it along side my D610 for about 1 year. I ended up selling it to buy a second D610 since I like having 2 bodies and it made sense to have 2 of the same bodies. While I am glad I have 2 D610s now, I actually kinda...

    Portrait Lenses

    Well your 55-200mm and 70-300mm can still be great portrait lenses. To give you a simple answer of what I would recommend to get on top of what you already own would be the 50mm f1.8G or the 85mm f1.8G. The 85mm f1.8G is only for $446 dollars with the $50 dollar Nikon rebate right now. I would...

    FS - Nikon 28mm f1.8G

    UPDATE: SOLD I am selling my Nikon 28mm f1.8G. I bought this lens new in May 2012 from Amazon. I really haven't used the lens all that much but I really enjoy it. Now that I have the 20mm and 35mm, I feel like I need to get rid of a lens. EDIT: this lens is back up for sale to help fund my...

    Wide Zoom 16-35 f/4 VR vs 17-35 f/2.8

    The new Tamron looks pretty nice. I am happy I went with the 16-35 f4G over the 17-35 f2.8 or 14-24 f2.8. Now that I have it paired with my new 20mm f1.8G, I feel I have the best of both worlds :)

    These are nice! #2 is my fav. I like your editing as well. All natural light, or did you use a reflector at all?
