The D850 thread is in the archives. But that's OK.....you just started a new one.

It will be interesting to see the results you get with the ES-2. I suspect they will be good.

Sounds like it’ll get some good use then. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Btw, Nikon has 2 lenses and (likely) camera announcements coming in the next few months. My personal guess is August or so, but the rumor is one of them is a new 60mm macro. The other is a likely 600mm PF f/5.6 lens. Cameras are likely their FF mirrorless and a P900 replacement as my guesses.

Do we like the PF lenses? Aren't they dumbed-down/neutered in some way?

Or is it just that they won't work on some lower-tier/older bodies?

I seem to recall they're cheaper to produce, not sure if that's good or bad.

The 300mm f/4 PF is freaking fantastic. It’s 3” shorter and half the weight of the old 300mm f/4D lens, still super sharp, but because of a PF design if you have lens flare it’s a weird ring shape due to the fresnel lens. Supposedly the Nikon software has a tool to reduce it, but I don’t know for sure. Never poked at it. I had hoped to play with one on my D850 on this trip to Seattle, but no luck at the camera shop.

If the 600mm PF rumor turns out to be true, I’d still expect it to be expensive as hell but significantly lighter and decently smaller than the current prime. Can’t say for sure though since it’s all smoke and mirrors so far.
