In Topic: Got a Tokina 10-17mm, still using the Nikkor 10.5mm?

01 November 2007 - 05:08 AM

I have both. I've used the 10.5 for years. But I now prefer the 10-17 because I shoot a lot of people that don't always cooperate e.g. arms out at last moment and I also like to shoot an occasional turtle or shark or just a fish ... sometimes at the 17 end. My concern was about ease of getting focus lock but it turns out that the 10-17 is as good as the 10.5 .... at least it is for me.

What metering mode are you using? The reason I ask is that in tests I ran, I found that I got more repeatable results with center-weighted metering than with matrix metering.

These work for me for the D70.


In Topic: Nikon Teleconverters - Which One?

I use both the 1.4 and the 1.7. Both produce sharp results. However, from what I have read the 2.0 does not produce as good a result. Thus my recommendation, get the 1.7.


In Topic: When you want shallow DOF

06 November 2006 - 05:53 AM

While a shallow depth of field helps to isolate the subject, I think the DOF needs to be deep enough to cover the subject i.e. have all of the relavent subject in focus. Having some part of the subject in focus isn't good enough for my tastes.

Thus, I think careful selection of subjects and their backgrounds along with proper lighting is a better way to get subject isolation.
