I've been impressed with the 50mm .. looks to be nice and sharp at f2.2-4 and the lens is AF isn't as bad as I thought it might be.
Its definitely easier to street shoot with the 50, alothough i keep having to remind myself to zoom with feet. A big pluspoints are its a lot less intimidating and light weight but I'm not sure I like the FL at the moment.

The D800's AF-C is just in another league compared to the E3's and being able to track headon and lock focus with the cyclists I only had a handful of OFF shots. That simply wouldnt be the case with the Oly.

Regards the 4FPS/5FPS - thats fast enough for me although I think wiating for the buffer to clear could be a bit of a pain when shooting sports.

More testing possibly tomorrow but this time with the 85.

Congratulations Harj for the new gear.

Beautiful series, my favorites are 1 and 4, the 50mm 1.8 G is the best of all the 50mm lenses in the market and for that price is really a steal...!

You are jumping from the E3 to the D800 thats a great upgrade in IQ and AF speed.

Welcome to the dark side..!!

Hi Hartj, Nice to see you making some pictures again and with a D800 :-). You made already some very nice pictures ! Here I even do get very sharp results at 1.8 with the 50mm lens. Greetings, Pascal
