Gooood stuff..!!! I noticed 85mm. Was that the prime nikkor 85mm f-whatever G and have you found it to be a little soft on your D7000. I have one and cant determine if its my fumble fingers or the lens that seems slightly soft on my D800...Thanks.
It's the 85mm f/1.4 older model. No, it seems to be nice and sharp. I will tell you I was having amazing problems with my 50mm f/1.4 that day. Never happened previously. I'm sure it's me doing something wrong. I'm doing a portrait session this Thursday and another on Friday so I'll put it through the tests and the 85mm as well.
an after thought - I notice more and more photog's using a tripod even in group sessions. They are getting sharper images.
Thanks for info..My 85mm G is f1.8. In a strange turn of events my 70-200mm f4G seems way sharper. Haven't had any problems with my 50mm f1.4 on the D7000 or D800. Good comment on tripods. I have seen it written in the blogs that these upper level bodies are demanding much more and better performance glass, especially for old shaky farts like me. Maybe time for me to upgrade to something better then a Walmart tripod. Let us know the results on your portrait shoots. Thanks again..and again great work.
As an aside, does your avatar and handle mean your an Indian man? In my distant youth I campaigned K-Whackers, then grew up to Laverda's and Duck's until the day I had one launch too many....sigh!!!
LOL.....No I meant do you ride an Indian motorcycle....Your avatar looks close to the Indian nMotorcycle logo, and yeah me also related to Cherokee some where back in time, but then again who isn't if your family has been in this part of the world for any time.
