Turkish boats in the Bosporus fully detailed with the Nikon 70-200 mm VR-II

I know it is just modern boats… mainly ferries for tourists… but there is something in these pictures I like.. click to magnify each and enjoy the stunning details of the Nikon 70-200 VR-II mounted on the Nikon D800.


In this first picture, the bridge is 6 km far away: do you see the buses on it?



Can you spy in the background the ultra long tanker in the picture above?



… there are seven minarets in this last picture: on which one the muezzin is praying?

    I believe the D 800 has the full size sensor. Would it be accurate to mostly credit that with the clarity, or the lens? or both. Which do you think contributes more? M

      It has a 36 Mpx full size sensor. Magnification-wise, the sensor plays a big part, this lens is “only” a 70-200 mm. However, the images are so crispy-clear, distortion- and colour-aberration- free thanks to the lens.
