Nice! (Two Cameras and a Killer Lens Combo)

The kit I'll be wearing at the Deaconate Ordination Mass this coming Saturday. Afterwards, I'll run to the back chapel, where I'll snap some shots with the D3 and a nice kit of SB-26 remote flashes!

Nikon D3 and D90 with 70-200mm VR and 50mm 1.4

Is anyone selling a used D3 for cheap? I gotta get me one of these cameras!

Gear pictured above:

  • Nikon D3 (rented from LensRentals)
  • Nikon 50mm f/1.4 AF (my own)
  • Nikon D90 (my own)
  • Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 AF-S VR (rented from LensRentals)

I'm going to use the 70-200 on my D90, as the D90 has a smaller image crop, meaning the 200mm will be more like 300mm in practical use. The D3 + the 1.4 lens is a killer combo for in-the-dark shooting (the Cathedral is very dimly lit). I can still get 1/100 shutter speed at ISO 1600 and f/1.8!

Comments

Just wondering if you plan to post any of your ordination photos. From the Review article, it's interesting that all four are graduates of Jesuit high schools (three from SLUH, one from DeSmet).

Just posted the pix to Lifeisaprayer.com: http://www.lifeisaprayer.com/photos/galleries/2010-diaconate-ordination-...

I'll also be posting them to the St. Louis Review!
