I looked at the EXIF of that file and it was shot at 200mm @ f2.8. It was almost certainly shot with the 70-200/2.8.
@framer: you might consider a refurbed D800. You can save about $1000 and use that to buy a really great lens.
The shot isn't super-sharp because making a super-sharp picture wasn't one of the photographer's priorities.CreativeLive fans already know that Natalia ("Miss Aniela") and her partner Matthew are fantastic photographers. ...
@framer: three of my four favorite lenses were all under $1000. That shot above was shot with a 105/2.8 macro, which is under a grand. Also, both of my Sigma art lenses were under a grand. My 85/1.4g was over... And well the 200-400 was way over.
Speaking of raw - Raw Size S is a new reduced-resolution 12-bit uncompressed raw mode which outputs at 9MP. This resolution is perfectly adequate for many scenarios, and working photographers might prefer the lower resolution option when shooting (say) current events where smaller file sizes are more practical when it comes to transmitting images. Nikon users have been asking for this feature for a long time.
I take back everything. The image is actually super sharp, it's just that if you look closely at the original the focus is on the nose and not the eye. My bad.
