    above link is for last year's CB7 just to give you guys an idea what happens during these trips

    anyway, we were at the Nikon 1 launch today and the cameras are sweet

    60fps
    slow motion movie
    selectable AF (between Contrast and Phase Detection )
    adaptor to allow the use of legacy Nikon lenses (i can imagine a 300mm attached to this baby at 2.7 crop)

    but so strange ..... it cannot take all the wonderful legacy Nikon flash units

    ok nice dropping by ...... sorry i seldom go into the TCSS threads
    shaddap and just shoot .... up close

    Really? I rather disliked the design of the previous one... too vulgar. Maybe the current one is a bit too conservative liao... hehehe can't please everyone. But the interior is to die for... actually I think many cows died in order to cover the interior in leather. Poor things.... moo....

    Yes indeed I think Crossing Bridges 8 will be a memorable trip for all the participants

    I'm curious to see the phase-detect AF in action, especially with certain people going on and on (like broken recorder) about how good phase detect AF is in liveview on 'other' brands

    The interior is.... STEAM!! But I like the overall design of the old ones. Just the previous design. With a somewhat squarish butt and angular front. Slick...

    there are many times, even though the light is decent but on a very "flat" day shooting a very low contrast subject.... the AF keep "running" up and down trying to lock on focus. It get worst when there is less light. There are ways to overcome it but wouldn't it be nice that it can simply focus intelligently and quickly....

    Maybe you need to check your cam's AF sensor, or upgrade
    I have no issues with AF when lighting conditions are sufficient

    and that's why best to use a FM2 type of manual focusing screen inside the DSLR, and shooting in manual focus mode regardless of AFS or legacy or any 3rd partly lenses

    Cannot leh bro... A number of the AF-S lenses don't have really nice focusing rings. The smoothness and the spacing also important.
    Compared to those MF-only lenses of yesteryear, really no fight

    hahaha no mistake la.
    Anyway I was keen to get some AiS lenses at one point, but now am doubting my ability to nail critical focus, especially if it is a fast lens (eg f/2 or f/2.5)

    Bro I think it's time to get some reading glasses
    How does an f/1.2 AiS help me if I have no confidence to get accurate focus when using an f/2 or f/2.5 AiS lens?

    The funny thing is that I have the 50/1.2 and I almost never use it on the FX cam. My hands kept drifting to the Siggy 50...
