Reader comments on DAP, D3s, Nikon 70-200mm VR II
I thought I’d share a few reader comments.
Just a quick note of appreciation for your ongoing review of the 70-200/2.8 VR-II Nikkor. In a day where one must wade through the wasteland of complainers, whiners and incomplete or poorly conceived "tests" in many of the various online forums, it's nice to see a thorough and reasonable review of the lens, with plenty of samples, that displays and discusses the lenses imaging characteristics while neither ignoring nor over-emphasizing it's flaws. I can't imagine anyone who is considering that lens not gaining valuable insight from subscribing to DAP and then reading the review. At this moment in time, it's the best review of the lens out there. — Nashville Mike
Here’s two more reader quotes:
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all the information on your website. I thought I knew just about all there was about taking pictures, but reading your DAP columns, and your evaluations about the Zeiss lenses completely changed the way I think about photography. After reading your work, and doing much thinking, I sold ALL of my photo gear and started over with the premise that I would rather have one great lens than a few good ones. So, I bought a D700 and the Zeiss 50 and 100 makro-planars. Wow! I actually enjoy the manual focus and photos are sensational by comparison to my other gear. My main interest is in portrait work, mainly black and white, which is why I recently bought the Nikon 70-200. Anyway, keep up the good work. — Bud R
I'm enjoying your reviews immensely, not just for a decisive opinion but for their artistic quality as well. The pictures posted in the D3s review are awesome. I think most are capable of a prime space in an art gallery. I was on the line to upgrade to a D3s. I've ordered one now. — Prateek D
