Well, my first shot with my newly acquired Nikon D800 & Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8! Unfortunately it is not a blue hour shot, that day was quite hazy and humid, hence this purple haze... I might have to wait a long time before I get a clear weather here in Dubai, so I decided nevertheless to give the D800 a try.

Of course the 1024px resizing does not do any justice to this 36 Mpix camera. On my Flickr page I have posted a 100% crop view which really shows the amazing spatial resolution of the D800.

Regarding the Nikkor 14-24mm, I am quoting my friend Beno Saradzic: "14-24mm Nikkor is the best ultra wide zoom on Earth. It is optically -perfect- lens engineering. Tack sharp from corner to corner at all focal lengths, all apertures. In fact, this lens is a freak. it shouldn't have existed in the real world, only on the paper. It is an impossible lens."

Actually Beno is using this Nikon lens on his Canon 5d MkII, so it says it all.

The dynamic range of the D800 is so high that I barely needed to do any Digital Blending. Just a little. It might take a while before I stop blending :)
