Have any one experienced Vignetting with Nikon 70-200 F2.8 VR II? I see some vignetting (See top left on sample pic).. Not sure bcos its the filter, but its Hoya HD2 which is comparatively a thin filter.. Anyone has same issue?

Sample Pic - https://www.flickr.com/photos/kasunmeegahapola/13182872785/

KMeeg..

Did u try googling about this issue?

Ya.. I've seen ppl say "heard it vignette but never seen. Better to use thin filter. " in some forums when I search in google. I checked sample images from pixel peeper and it was awesome did not notice vignette in those pics. The reviews i watched on youtube claimed that 24-70 has some vignette but not 70-200 (Watched videos from Digitalrev, That Nikon guy, etc..). That’s why 70-200 was selected with Hoya HD2 to protect the front element. But in reality the lens does not seem to be that 'awesome'..


Also I have set camera settings to Vignette control H on D610. Hope that is the right setting to use. (I just started photography as a hobby so don't know much about this things)..

Its not really a big issue, i wouldn't have noticed the vignette if u hadn't mentioned it

Kmeeg - Thanks! Some of the photos were taken with my 60mm Macro. That can used as a portrait lens. And love those evening shots of yours. Superb!!

Schiffer - It's my old Canon 1000D machan. Entry level body but great for starters. Now using a 60D.

Hi Schiffer,

I know i'm new to photography but hope this helps. The reason i started Nikon was it was cheap. I got my first camera Nikon D3200 + 18-55mm for just $399 (including shipping and tax). I don't think you can get a new stater Canon camera for this price. Also i bought my first Fullframe body Nikon D610 in Nov last year at $1800. And i did most of the family photos with Nikon 50mm 1.8g which only cost around $200.. I believe Fullframe Canon 6D would be around $2400.

What i wanted to tell was if you do photography as a hobby like me Nikon might be cheaper but might not be quality as Canon. But i'm not sure about it since i have not compared my self and what my Canon friends told me. (Just my thought and might be wrong).

Hope this helps..

Kmeeg.

Should open 'Photolanka' too to discuss this. I was recently arguing with my friends about Sony cameras too. On point and shoot cameras i believe Sony rx 100 ii is way over other point and shoot cameras. Also in DSLRs Sony is picking fast. Eg - Sony Alpha A99 a full frame camera. Also sony offers almost similar to Nikon and Canon Lens range.

Anyways, i don't think most of the auto fans like discussing this topic in Autolanka. But it was nice to have a discussion. Let me know if there is an option for Sri Lankan photography lovers to get together, learn and discuss. Or if you guys have a group in flickr or something i can join.

You're certainly late for the party. In fact there are quite a few photography fans here. And its a topic that has been discussed in detail many times before. :)

You believe wrong. A 6D is $1400 brand new. $2400 will get you a 5D MkII at least.

I'm sorry, what? Look, Sony offers decent SLRs, they use the same sensor that goes in to the Nikons coz they manufacture it, and they have a decent set of lens and the Carl Zeiss range is second to none, BUT, Sony can't come anywhere near the range of the other two. Certainly not at the telephoto end. Also Zeiss glass is available for Canon too.

And sony lenses are quite expensive compared to equivelant Nikon or Canon lens right?

And I didn't realise there was much of a price difference between similarly equipped Canon and Nikon cameras. I'm quite new to DSLRs and I decided to go with a 60D as my first one. Cropped sensor yes but I thought that the 60D had the best balance between entry level and professional cameras. The first one up the Canon line with the top LCD, which gives a couple of direct controls. And I love the button layout - all on to the right hand. All in all I'm very happy with my choice.
