    It's the same shot as before...

    Or at least get the friggin' NOSE is focus. This isn't a romantic portrait.

    Well, in Rita's case - maybe...

  5. Bloody moron. Featureless background and as noted by others, you've
    screwed up the focal plane/dof like the incompetent wanker that you
    are - was he moving too fast for you, dear?

    Here's Rita's *earlier* example showing the awful bokeh from this
    absolute dog of a lens - she didn't even notice it before posting:
    But of course there's little point visiting it, because as soon as
    'Rita' exceeds her two visits per day limit, Geocities closes her
    down. Just as well for our eyes, I think.

    Anyway, it's also just as well that lens is a rental. Although
    clearly, it doesn't matter what equipment 'she' holds, she just posts
    more rubbish...

    I must agree that I would like the nose tip in focus as well but this
    picture as it is draw ones attention to the pup's eyes which is the
    centre of focus.

    I love the bokeh! Is this the new VR version of the 500? I have some
    profit sharing coming in February. If it is enough, I am going to get a
    Nikkor 500/f4 with VR. Thanks for sharing. -G

    the 199$ S3 IS take better picture than that. You should read some books
    about photography instead of spending money on a DSLR.

  8. Yep, that was the intension as I was testing out the D3's focusing ability.
    Thanks! It's a sweet lens. No, this is the <AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4D IF-ED
    II> which is the previous version. I very rarely use VR anyway and I need
    it less now with the D3's high-ISO performance. This lens is easily
    handheld, even with the D200. I got a decent deal on this lens so it would
    have been foolish for me to not take it.

  9. Stop complaining, you got exactly what you paid for.

  10. Hey, don't blame me. It's all them killfiles malfunctioning at the same
    time. For as many people that claim to have me killfiled I get an extremely
    large amount of hits. Either their piss ant browser is malfunctioning or we
    have a bunch of liars.

    Poor Remy. It is sad when a dog gets blurry eyes at such a young age.
    Geez, maybe I will have to go to friggin Baltimore just to get a sharp
    pic of the mutt. Then I'll watch The Mighty Jewel whip his butt.

    Why not use a site that doesn't have a limit?

    It's a shame really.... all Rita's effort to blow wind up Nikon's ass
    and it gets sucked right back out every time she post's an image.
    LOL !!

  15. It is what it is. The lens focused where I wanted it to. You gotta love
    that razor thin DoF and creamy bokeh of the 500/4 Nikkor.
    You got what you paid for. Oh, paid customers get to go the "better" site.
    Just a note, even if you paid $500 for me to put up a Usenet approved site
    for the purpose of stimulating the idiots I wouldn't, it's against the
    rules. So enjoy the lovely Geocities.

    I agree. All this equipment fetishism by someone whose photographic skills
    are exceeded by by the capabilities of a cardboard disposible camera.
