My first Nikon D800 + 50mm f/1.4 G picture(s)

II finally got my Nikon D800 yesterday. Equipped with the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 G I tested it today at the botanical garden of Zurich. This 960 x 640 picture (click to enlarge) was cropped from full size JPG L/Fine (1/200 sec. – f/6.3 – ISO 100). Nothing else done. I wonder if I still need Photoshop and if I will ever buy a tele-objective … by the way, below my second and third and fourth pictures with the 50 mm. Again cropped from huge original JPG, please appreciate the sharpness and color dynamics. Thanks to my wife and father for sponsoring me this amazing camera! Thanks to Ken Rockwell website for suggesting buying a 50mm!

    you’ve got to practice your focusing to match up such a good camera!!

    you mean the bee on the sunflower? I could never get it into focus with the 50mm from that distance. Interestingly, I suppose because the bee was smaller than the autofocus point … but indeed with new camera and new lens I feel like a beginner!
