The color is stunning Jack. I have been kicking around the idea of getting a D700 this fall. I think you made up my mind.

27 Apr 2010 11:27pm

@Gary: I find it to be an extraordinary camera. You can run the ISO way up and not get a lick of noise. On lenses, my original walk-around lens was the expensive 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. However for over 6 mo., I have been using the lighter, more economical 24-85mm f/2.8-4. Thom Hogan panned it, but I find it to be outstanding. It also has a macro function which most full frame lens in this zoom focal range don't have. The recent four shots were taken with a Sigma 150mm macro. I have the Nikon 105mm macro, which I tend to use on my D300. With full frame, I like the longer focal length of the Sigma.

Beautiful shot jack....nothing silly about this one !!!

It's like a yin-yang composition. That color reminds me of that "infamous word" you and I have been known to exchange with each other: vermilion. :-)
