    That is pretty high in price. Japan is pricey, too, but they now have a larger consumption tax than a few days ago.

    I’d like to visit Holland again. I had a job in Breda a few years back, and it was great.

    Japanese, but there are some interesting images even if you cant understand the language:


    I Iearned a new word from this video: bokasu. It id derived from boke, a noun, and is another example of verbing a noun. bokasu could be translated as “creating bokeh”, and was used in a sentence describing the picture of the rose where Ueda san says: usually it is difficult to create bokeh with wide angle lenses.”

    It is always the factory price first here for a couple of month Jack, I'am not in a hurry, so I wait till the price drops. The first impression is that the 24mm is on par with the 50mm and that is super, but everything I get from the Z6 is better then ever before.

    When you come to Holland, send me a message, we do a coffee :) .
    This is also for everybody on the forum, to meet you is much more fun. I live in the neighbourhood of The Haque, Holland is n't that big.

    Good to see that all of the S lenses are first class glass.

    They seem to be working out fine, don’t they?

    Just a 40mm pancake and the 70-200 f/2.8 S and I have my range complete again.

    I'am curious what the result will be of the 24mm and 50mm f/1.8 S with the 24-70 mm f/4 S and f/2.8 S, but I think that I already know.

    And 1/4 sec handheld, ok, ok 1/8 sec in my case :)

    My DSLR is in the bag now for months as a curiosity. complete with my serie of lenses. Well my granddaughter borrows it, so it is still being used sometimes.

    Note the following article from Photography Life that indicates that the Canon 85mm 1.2 will be USD 3,000.

    I guess we know what the Z 1.2s will cost.

    That's the "special" DS version - the normal version is a little cheaper - $2700. But yeah I expect the Nikon to be about $3k since Nikon usually charges more anyway.

    I am sure that whatever Nikon brings out will be competing with the DS Version, not the "normal" version.

    I'm still trying to figure out what the difference is. I guess we will get comparisons once the DS version is out there.

    I think the Canon site has some examples.

    There's an article on DPR about the difference as well. Basically, it's for improving bokeh, and gives you bokeh balls with soft blurred edges instead of hard sharp edges.

    So an an extra $300, better bokeh (worth $300 in my view) and some loss in resolution - I suspect some design trade offs.

    Thanks! Just looked at it.

    Looks like it's just a different coating on two of the lens elements. Pretty amazing how much of a difference it can make.

    My 70-300 AF-P came in the mail today. Didn't know how much I missed a good reach; I just put it on the Z6 and walked around the yard and house, looking at things. Did take a few pictures, nothing to write home about.

    This lens just seemed to be a no-brainer, decent resolution for a zoom at a rather low price. I also have the option of using it sans-FTZ with my D7000, mindful of the lose-focus-when-meter-times-out thing. Now I have to plan my morning railroad yard walkabout differently, not sure I want to take on a lens change in that environment. There's call for both wide-angle and tele compositions as the locomotives trundle through their preparations, so now I'll need to consider in advance where each are, rather than just encountering them with the 18-140 zoom on the D7000. Such problems... :smiley:

    So it does AF on the D7000? I had heard the FX version did (DX does not, I believe).

    Anyway yes it's an excellent lens. Easily the best 70-300 I've used.

    I just put it on my D7000, and it readily locked focus when I half-pressed the shutter button. Then, I sat and waited for the viewfinder data to disappear; when it did, the focus stayed where it was set. When I half-pressed the shutter button, the focus swung in and out and re-settled on the previous distance. I can deal with that behavior.

    This seems to be very good from what I can see here. NOCT in action
