Using on a D7000...the 35mm just doesn't seem to want to focus as sharp as my AF Nikkor 50mm 1:1.8 seems to effortlessly do every time. I use these a lot indoors during the holidays and parties.
Would rather use the 35mm indoors just because of the limited space and crop factor. Any ideas? Thanks
I borrowed my sister's new Nikon 18-200 VR to carry on our San Francisco area vacation this spring. I was more than pleasantly surprised and rarely took it off. It is a very good, do everything lens.
I agree with SS -Pfeiffer beach at sunset and will also post a shot. If possible get to Yosemite only 3.5hrs from oakland. The upper altitude areas glacier point etc will not open til early to mid June but still worth seeing without a doubt. Talk your wife into more time!! Rich
And if you go to Pfeiffer Beach, you have to have lunch/dinner just a mile away at the Nepenthe; cliff side restaurant with terrace overlooking the pacific. It's our go to place at sunset when visiting the area.
And if you or anyone just happen to be in Big Sur area, eat at the Nepenthe Restaurant. Just make sure it is around sunset.
You do know 2 days is not enough in SF?! I'm sure you know, but to state the obvious place. Cross the GG bridge, get off on Alexander Ave exit and find your way back up the mountain. First to Battery Spencer and then all the way to the top at Hawk Hill. These are where all the postcard shots are taken looking down on the Golden Gate.
SF is my favorite and, IMHO, the most beautiful city in America. You could spend a month between Hearst Castle and Sausalito and still run out time photographing the area. I would be a little jealous but am header there for a week next spring. Enjoy!
Fathers day? I got something that makes every camera work great.... My first grandchild. Isn't she gorgeous?!
and it is all for naught, because it is out of focus
ok. you saw the camera data that meives posted above. the lens was a nikon 70 - 300 mm. This was a walk around, all pictures handheld.
I did not attempt any sharpening in pp. What settings could/should be changed to make it more in focus/sharper.

I tried this under a little different situation around the house using on camera flash...very good results. will try with SB600 soon.
Good morning and blessings to those who have served and are serving our country.
Thanks to you all for the professional tips and suggestions for my pics, both in camera and pp. As you can tell, I'm not a professional photographer, but get the family nomination because I enjoy it and have a better camera than anyone else.
I did pp a little in Picasa, drawing down the shadows and adding fill light, which helped the foreground and subject a lot.
What all of you have suggested will be a big help when we return to the same spot/situation, after the baby gets here!
Thank you again for taking the time to share your expertise.
I read UH every morning while eating breakfast and am always learning from you all
Afternoon river walk, sun on river in background. We were under trees, shady. I know this is a tough time of day.
Nikon D700 with sb600 using fill flash. What can I do to prevent the washout. Settings? Filter? Thanks in advance.
#1 for me as well Mitcha.
Jay, interested in your comment on needing more space on the left.
Can you explain your theory/reason for that? No criticism here...just like to hear all angles. Thanks
Guns are not the answer for everything. But when you are being shot at, or your children, they are certainly better than apples and chalk.
The article made a good point about adults being protected. Every where you see adult government employees gathered they have adult armored protection.
Congressmen don't go to work a day without it...and wouldn't. But they will make laws for children to do what they won't do.
Oh that our Congress would consider human nature rather than human emotion when prescribing how the rest of us should live.
