Quick review of the Nikon 85mm 1.8G.  It is now down to $400, a great buy for its capabilities.

Hi, Brian Tobey !
I owned a D7000 with 18-105mm kit lens + SB-910 flash.
Thinking to add one or two prime into my current system, do you think 28mm f/1.8 + 85mm f/1.8 are ideal package?
I always shoot family photo inside the house and use my camera for travel.
I planned to buy a D800 in two years time.
Thank you!

Still testing out the new Nikon 70-200mm f/4G VR.  Making some comparisons against other Nikon alternatives.  I have to finish the review by the end of the weekend.  All in all it was a good day.

Swan action with new Nikon 70-200mm f/4G.   Giving it a try and so far am impressed with the performance, and the new VR 3rd generation.

+Russ Evans the sensor oil is still an issue. From what I understand, it takes multiple cleanings. However it does go away. Cleaning the sensor does not void the warranty. People have cleaned it a few times and then sent it back to Nikon. Also when servicing it through nikon I was told they attempt to remove any excess oil.

Overall, I would not worry about it. It's an awesome camera.

Next time when you order gear, try to go through the links on my site as it helps me support my reviews. Either way, glad you are happy with it. I am happy with mine. I will keep you posted when I perform my next cleaning. After the first cleaning, the oil residue is not as significant as it once was.

+Steven Wilson I have the D7100 in my hands now.  I am working on a review for it.  However, I do not have a D7000 to compare it against.  But I will make some comparisons to the D600, and maybe even D800.  However, those FX cameras still have a huge advantage.  Unfortunately, based on my initial suspicious, I feel as if the D7100 is not going to offer much over the prior D90 or D7000.  I hope to have something up on the D7100 within a months time. Thanks for commenting!

I am loving the new #nikon 70-200mm f/4 VR.  It's image quality is exceptional.  It is so much easier to carry than my other big boy lenses.  And the VR is very impressive.  I will keep you posted with samples soon!

Oh 1 stop is difficult to justify.  You would be better off with an 85mm f/1.4D than contemplating the 2.8 VR-II version.  Ultimately the 200mm f/2 demonstrates superb performance to both of these.

Steve McCurry Shooting in Rio De Janeiro, definitely an inspirational video worth a look.
