(a) I can't find your images...

.... ah! Now I can (three minutes later).

(b) were you using the DX setting?

© the images look really nice, sharp and colourful, anyway!

Hi Jenny,
Nice images and colors. A couple of questions; in some of the images there seems to be a little vignetting or peripheral light falloff. Is this just your lighting or does the lens setup have something to do with it. It's hard to judge from computer images as to the quality and detail, do you think the 10-17 and TC shows the kind of detail and quality you would expect on the D800?

Hello Jeff,

Yes, it has some vignetting in edge as there is a hood on my lens. I have to zoom back ( 11.5mm ) a little but sometimes it is still not enough.
And some images has bigger dark area as i only used low power strobe to light up main subject. I wouldn't like to light up the edge of corals or rocks, the results will be softer in the edge. So i tried to light and focus on 60~70% central area.

I think the quality of this lens ( 10-17mm with 1.4xTC ) is not the best for D800.

Will try to use 16-35mm and 10-17mm DX mode directly with D800 in Maldives next week.

Cheers, :)

I used FX mode with 1.4xTC...


Now that's very interesting and has given me a few ideas about my old DX lenses...
