This Nikkor lens is a bit of a throwback to another age (1987) when Nikon was still making rugged metal lens bodies (I’ll post pics of it soon). I tested it on my Nikon D800 just yesterday afternoon for the first time. It was pretty late in the day so the sunlight was getting a bit warmish.
What amazes me most about the image above is the detail at the top of this tall pine. My guess is that the tree is about eighty feet tall and is a couple of suburban yards away from my shooting location. The Nikon D800 is a full-frame DSLR with 36.3 megapixels. Both shots were handheld (no image stabilization).
Thanks for stopping by. More test pics soon. – Chris
