Nikon Nikkor 28mm f1.4 Lens Shots of Vancouver

Nikon D700 with the Nikkor 28mm f1.4 lens. What a combination. ISO 3200. Hand-held, wide-open at f1.4, hand held at 1/8. One eighth of a second.

Hand-held shot of the stars. One-eighth of a second, wide open at f1.4. Stars are - I hate to indulge in the oldest cliche in the book - sharp as a tack, pin-point, edge of a knife, you call it. I was simply amazed. This is the full frame. A little colour drop off in the corners, but no change in sharpness, edge to edge.

Shot with a Nikon D700, ISO 1600, f1.4, 1/30. Love the colours of the neon against the sky.

I was impressed with how the D700 and the 28mm f1.4 picked up on the neon lighting up the tree leaves. This camera and lens combination was picking up details I couldn't see with my own eye. I'd look at the LCD and either shake my head in disbelief or giggle like an eight-year old girl... I bow down to the Nikon optical engineers.

Unbelievably crisp, wonderful contrast and colour rendition. Shot with a Nikon D700, ISO 1600, wide open at f1.4, 1/15.

I am in awe of how this lens handled the reflections on the water.
