Giving this thread a much deserved bump with a couple of images taken the other day in the crappy rain and thunder storms.

I like that bedraggled woody.(y)

Still using my D750s with no temptation to move to those newfangled mirrorless jobbies! I am being lured by the siren calls of a 35/1.8G though. :LOL:

lol, you want to try the 50mm 1.4 thats even heavier, but I tell you what, it is some lens and more :)
I'd looked one but haven't decided if I want one as yet. Cracking lens for sure, but think the Nikon 1.8 50mm maybe a better option for everyday stuff where low light isn't such an issue.

Love the 35 1.4 ART though.

Levi turned up on his Indian last week and thought it would be a good idea to take a couple of pics of his bike with some fire performers.
I'd like to try again with some better compositions, I think Sophie would look better in front of the bike, instead of behind it. I didn't think it would be a good idea to get the performers too close... :)

The first one is fantastic, great mix of colour and tones with prefect composition for me. Love the other two as well, looks like you hit that perfect golden hour.
Thanks Graham. It was a glorious evening - and surprisingly free of biting flies! I find foxgloves a very appealing subject for some reason. The first two took a bit more processing than I usually do, but the D750 files are great to work with.

Can anyone recommend the best way to do a panoramic photo with the D750 handheld?
Just take multiple pics, try to keep it steady. I'd also use manual and set the ISO (not auto), manual focus too.

Just drop the pics in a panoramic program - Photoshop is capable but there are free ones too

As Kendo says, just take multiple photos, trying to pivot around a central point. I find it better to actually do panos with the camera in portrait orientation as it gives you more 'height' to the image. Photoshop and Lightroom both have panoramic stitching tools.

I wondered what the hell had gone wrong when I reviewed this pic. I don't know how I'd put the camera in 'Effects' mode! :LOL:

I corrected my error pretty quickly. :)

Hi, any good deals on the d750 at the moment people know of? Also what do you think would be best for day to day walk about 24-70 f2.8 or the 18-120 f4?
My one in the classifieds section??? Also selling a 24-70!

The 24-70 is a quality lens, better than the other one u less you need the reach.

What you want from a walkabout lens - versatility, weight saving, fast aperture or sharpness is what matters rather than what someone else thinks is best. That said, for a walkabout lens I place most value on light weight, so the 24-85VR gets my vote.

I don't have one nor even used one but i have heard that the 24-120 f4 is a cracking lens.
Also, do you want a new D750 or 2nd hand?

i dont mind second hand as long as good condition, but usually would buy new. day to day lens for me is something suitable for when out on walks with the dog in the country side and at work (im a gardener) so plants, wildlife etc (will be adding a seperate macro lens at some point). still new to photography but my last camera (d5600) was nicked so need a new one and thought go for d750 after some research.

New UK stock is £1448 with the 24-120 VR Lens which is a steal for what you are getting
Panamoz is a bit cheaper but they are imported but come with a 3 year warranty.

I have the 24-120 VR lens and it is a great walkabout lens, the 24-70 is a bit of a beast.

By beast, I take it it's heavy? Leaning towards the 24-120 i think.

It is but it depends what you do and what you define as heavy. Wearing say a sling strap rather then a neck one makes a difference.

Calumet (WEX) used warranty is one year, I got a cracking deal with them for a D750 and a 24-70mm. It's not going to be as light as a CSC setup but for the price it's an awesome combination and compared to my A6000 it rarely misses focus with moving subjects such as my dog and children.

If you want to keep the weight down you could always go down the prime route instead?
