In Topic: Am I going soft: Nikkor 16-35mm

Yesterday, 03:07 PM

Dear Diver Doug,
Perhaps no one has "weighed in" with any results on the comparison of the two lenses, because like you they were unwilling to make the effort to do the work a good comparison involves.  I have repeatedly offered to lend you lenses that you have expressed interest in so you could test them yourself, including offering to lend you my Nikon 14mm f2.8 to test. And you have never taken me up on the offer despite the fact that like you, I live in Sarasota.

Divegypsy, I have not taken you up on your generous offer for two reasons which have nothing
to do with an unwillingness to " make the effort to do work" 1. I am not comfortable borrowing other people's photo gear. 2. Due to the death of a child last year, my ability to undertake such a project has been limited. Actually, after noting the attitude and tone of your posting above, I would be quite content in never meeting you, regardless of our proximity.
Take care, Doug

I have posted a few posts inquiring as to the U/W performance of the Nikon 14mm f/2.8 in comparison to the 16-35, but nobody has weighed in with any results.

Are you sure you are using a digital sync cord?  It should have a blue band on the camera end, and a red band for the secondary strobe.  If there are no bands you may have a non-digital cord, which will result in a myriad of difficulties.
