I just tried out my dad’s new Nikon D3s with the 85mm f/1.4, and now I’m like super toats jelly (super totally jealous)… He took some shots of me in a dark room lit with just the iphone, and it basically lit up the whole room, and looked really crisp on the LCD.
It really put my E620 to shame… But than again, I now understand why it’s 10x the cost of mine, and why people pay that.
I’ve been in the market for an Olympus pro series camera, but I’ve been holding out on their new model, which they should be releasing soon, but still there’s been no word on that, and they are keeping pretty mum. Hopefully, whatever they are releasing is worth the wait. Olympus is a niche camera, and I understand that. Great in good lighting, and small and portable, and the weather sealing is great. So definitely makes sense for the outdoor photographer, but for a guy like me who’s more into candids, low light, indoor, portrait, action, strobist, landscape, and just about everything kind of photography, switching up brands sounds like it might make more sense to me.
Then again, with a pricetag like the one dangling from the Nikon D3s, I would have to save up quite a few more cents for it to make sense, if you know what I’m sayin’…
