:arrow: related topic: Having fun with old Nikon DSLRs...

These images were initially meant as a test if my D1H autofocuses with 105 AF-S VR + 2x TCIIIe , and yes it does AF with this lens/TC combo... :o

All images are taken with D1h and 105 AF-S VR + 2xTCeIII, handhold.

A D1h is still capable of producing very acceptable results, although it is dated. The main reason for upgrading is not, as most people seem to think, the number of megapixels, but the contrasts it can master. (Although some are convinced it is number of the frames per seconds as most people seem to be sports photographers that produce images for magazines like Sports Illustrated) The dynamic range of a camera has been the main breakpoint for serious photographers; that is why cameras like the Fuji S3 and S5 have been sought after for so many years after they disappeared from the market: their digital range has been better than anything else on the market in those days.
The race for more and more megapixels has mainly been a marketing tool. About 98% of people never need anything larger than a 6 megapixel camera, but just buy it because someone else has one.
Just a few people need the D800, for just prints on the web, like most people do, everything else is like killing a mosquito with a gun. (Although it can be fun, shooting mosquitos this way) :D

Hi Stany,
Nice pictures with a nostalgic camera. Did you use AF ?
Best regards, Carlos

Hi Carlos,
Thanks for your reaction.
Yes, and AF works very well with the 105 AF-S with 2x TCIIIe combo. D1h with this lens/TC combo needs good light though. In low light it's hunting before locking AF.
Remarkable is also that the IQ loss with this lens/TC combo is nearly zero because of the big pixels. If you would compare the photons with a dart and the individual pixels with the dartboard' bulls eye it's easy for a photon to arrive on the right spot, despite some diffraction caused by the many lens elements of this lens/TC combo.
kindest regards,

Stany
