Ah, sorry, I didn't understand.

Here's a pic of some lips and chin.

and yes, it does seem softer, i think.

Re: ship at night

I'd say crop a bit. At the moment I get the feeling that you have too much empty space in the foreground. Nice pic!

Good Points

Don - First, You're right - I''m happy to get any result at all. And was very surprised it went through Alamy - I actually uploaded it, out of couriousity, in a very small batch. According to David's explanation, they probably saw it - but Javelin is probably correct that they've turned a blind eye ...

David, beautiful shot. one question:

The corners seem a bit soft to me. Is this a question of focus, or are they soft on the A900 even at f/10?

I like portrait shots for ISO,

Not because I ever intend to shoot one, but because they have so much fine detail, it's easy to spot the differences. This shot from [email protected] Isn't all that bad. Is the sample from the Nikon light years ahead? hard of course to compare, but I don't think so. http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.a...

The Exif at ISO 6400 says Noise OFF.

1/[email protected].8, 50mm, flash on, and if I understand correctly - 2/3 stop exposure balance. That Is pretty impressive for a NR off, Noise-Wise. The detail isn't amazing, but ISO 6400. However, something looks strange to me - the 6400 noise pattern looks, on my screen, more "natural" than the 320...

Definitely nice pages, thanks!

However, I can't find a full-size pic of 3200/6400 ISO in them. even the zoom for the 1600 isn't full-size. But as I've already said, I believe Nikon has no intention to make this camera a high-ISO machine.

Thanks for the Example.

The Pics at 6400 lack details, and seem slightly OOF. I'd guess NR was applied, for the lack of Chroma Noise. Not very impressive - But it seems that almost ALL first-out-of-the-camera pics tend to be horrible, regardless of maker.

Re: Nikon D3X on the way

I'm sure the sensor silicon is the same but the 12-channel readout and the gapless microlenses appear to be Nikon claims which Sony has not made for the A900. That means the performance could be far superior. David I find it quite hard to believe that the performance would be far superior, unless N...

The WB should not affect the RAW,

but it may save you time post-processing and espcially when batch-processing.

Three rumors from a usually knowledgeable Israeli photograph

(that is, he was correct several times before if I remember correctly). He said that there are 3 camera in the pipeline. Names, of course, are not binding and are for the sake of the discussion. - A800 (or whatever name) which would be an A900 with a 12mp D3 Sensor (said to be already in test runs, ...

sparaxis, If you have Maxxum 7 (Film), by all means get one.

I have one, and It's my main walkaround lens with the film camera. Good quality, fast, accurate.

As for the 85/1.4,

My brother just bought one (mint condition, in original case, looks as if it was never used) and I used it on my A700. Amazing. sharp even wide open, much more than the 50/1.4. Gets even better at 2.8, and has low CA all the way, except for some extreme situation. I heard that the Zeiss 85 is differ...
