    You must have a back up of your images...well you also need a back up camera. ;)

    Oh come-on! A man cannot have too many lens and too many cameras!
    I know, I know... I used to think that about pocketknives and mandolins as well!

    The review of the grip is excellent. If you are a D800/D810 user check out his comments about battery grips locking to the body and not coming off.

    Here is a review of the Micro Solution Pro Guard Screen Protector for the D750.


    Interesting I use a Vello thin glass protector on my D7100 and did not notice the infringing on the screen area. I will go back and check it out. Don't want this issue on the D750 or any other camera.

    I am skeptical of a test that seems contrived. I never shoot with my cap on.

    Saw this on another web site:
    Autofocus in live view is not possible with the following of my lenses:
    Sigma 10-20mm
    Sigma 12-24mm
    Sigma 50mm f/1.4
    Sigma 85mm f/1.4
    Sigma 150mm macro f/2.8
    The writer indicated that he had contacted Sigma and was told that problem will be solved after an update of the firmware.
    Sigma 120-300mm is focussing well in live view, but not in combination with the TC.
    ====================================
    Not a big deal long term, just short term until Sigma updates their firmware.

    Yee-ikes. When I get a D750 I would expect to get a Sigma 50 f1.4 so I'll be watching to see if this is sorted.

  • donaldejosedonaldejose Posts: 3,403Member
    I noticed photobug's list included the Sigma 85mm f1.4. Since the 85mm f1.4 Art is not yet out that was a clue he was talking about the old lenses.

    Sorry guys, I should know better. Here is the link to the D750 Club web site where the individual talked about the AF in live view issues with certain Sigma lens. Yes it sure looks like the older lens.

    Great review. Thanks for posting it.

    I find it interesting that you passed on the 135 because of its age. I find it "almost" as good as my 85, and it certainly has better IQ than the 70-200 (at 135), though not the flexibility.

    I also think that it was very brave of you to use your new gear at a wedding so soon after purchasing it. Something happen to your Canon gear?

    Also thanks for the reasoning why you bought the lens you did and for listening the Canon lens. I understand your logic. I said this in the 20 1.8 forum and I will repeat it here...great review, nicely written, and love the images. Thanks.

    I am very pleased with the 70-200. The 135 I tested on my bodies was great. Soft wide open and pretty slow low light AF.

    The reason I switched is because I missed some shots this season because AF was not getting the job done. Canon has been in a very very slow improvement process which for me didn't cut it anymore. I don't care about a 5DIV. I need tools that work right now. I am very happy that I made the switch.

    I am dropping it off next Monday since I have a wedding this Saturday. The Nikon rep that I know offered me his D750 or D4s but I don't have time this week to do some Af fine ajustements.

    Will keep you posted.

    I own the 70-200/2.8 and I pretty much hate it. I don't think I've used it in about 18 months. It was super expensive, it's not particularly sharp, I don't love the colors, it behaves more like a 60-150, and I don't really like the bokeh. When I switched from Canon and gave up my 70-200/2.8 II L, it was such a huge disappointment. Sorry.
    I don't understand why you are sorry.
    We all have our own opinion. I had not used a zoom in over 5 years. I don't like the weight but my version is sharp, colors are good and bokeh is not something I worry about. I had to AF fine tune all my lenses.

Canon has been in a very very slow improvement process which for me didn't cut it anymore. I don't care about a 5DIV. I need tools that work right now. I am very happy that I made the switch.
    I agree that the AF on the 135 is slower - compared to my 85. I would assume that the comparison would hold with the 70-200 as well, particularly because AF at 2.8 is easier than 2.0 or 1.4 all things being equal.

    I also agree that it is soft wide open, but then again, my 85 is soft wide open (not because of issues such as AF fine tune which I have extensively fiddled with using charts, the softness seems consistent with what is reported in lab tests). Note that the 85 is renowned for being sharp wide open, so why the disconnect? If you consider that the greatest advances in lens technology regarding sharpness has not been stopped down apertures, where there has been only modest improvement, but wide open, where there has been enormous improvement. The difference between the 85 1.4G and 85 1.4D wide open is very significant. Even the 58 1.4G, regarded as soft wide open, is tack sharp wide open compared to the 58 1.2 MF Nocturnal it "replaces". Lens technology has come a long way, particularly in this area.

    The 105 and 135 are sharp wide open (though a lot sharper stopped down) and should only be considered wanting when compared to the 85 1.4G, which rewrote the book on wide open sharpness for a portrait lens.

    In practice, my 85 is sharper wide open, but I have to look closely. At f/4.0, there is little difference. And as Pitchblack alluded to regarding the poor bokeh and colours of the 70-200, the bokeh and colours of the 135 is wonderful. It is the best portrait lens you can buy, barring the 85 and fast super-teles. This lens does not get the credit it deserves (which I admit is my opinion).

    nice review .. any more thoughts on the 20mm F1.8 ? why did you pick that instead of the 24 mm esp since you had a 24 while on the canon.?

    @sebmour1981: Welcome to NRF. Very informative review.

    I, like yourself, have found the 70-200 2.8 VR II to be an excellent lens. Have never had an issue with it and it is tack sharp. Very versital lens and I'm sure it will come in handy on many of your wedding projects.

    One other prime lens that you might also consider for your work: Nikon 105 2.8 Micro. It is fast, amazingly sharpness and given that it is also a macro lens, it will come in handy for those close up shot. Check it out.

    Two of the features that I was very interested in with the D750 was the in-viewfinder face/eye detection and improved video capabilities. However, after testing them out at my local camera store I wasn't able to get either to work very well. Perhaps one of you could let me know what I might be doing wrong? In both cases I tried using both the 85 1.8 and the 24-120 4.

    For the face/eye detection I had the camera pointer straight at the salesman's face, only about 6 feet away, and neither of us was moving, but the autofocus seemed to randomly pick points all over his face - eyebrows, cheeks, nose, chin, and sometimes eyes. I'd say I got an eye maybe 20% of the time at most. I tried both full auto mode and aperture priority af-s and af-c with auto assign points and both had about the same results. Am I missing a setting somewhere or am I maybe not using this correctly?

    For the video, I had hopes that the AF-F continuous autofocus would be more responsive and lock on more quickly than my D7100. However, when I panned the video from something in focus to something out of focus it seemed to either take a long time to re-focus (with some pumping in-and-out), or it just wouldn't re-focus at all until I jiggled it around a little more. I tried using both the normal and spot areas. Is this normal? Again, it's quite possible I had something set incorrectly or am just not using it right.

    Any help would be appreciated since I was really looking forward to this camera.
