Michael Weber has posted his review of the new Nikkor AF-S 400/2.8 VR, the only flaw he could find was the tripod mount, but that’s nothing really new at Nikon 🙂

Michael Webers Nikon D3 review

Michael Weber has posted his Nikon D3 review. According to him the D3 has a slight DR advantage over the Canon 1DIII and the new autofocus is very accurate. Some quotes:

Image quality especially at high ISOs above 1600 will set new standards

Literally shocked were some of them (his Canon collegues) when they had a look at my sequences take with the innovative scene recognition system at 9 fps. No matter where the player’s movements were constant or jerky, whether the background was disturbing or very contrasty, or players in the front passed through the scene, the newly designed AF tracking was mostly spot on and very, very accurate.”

Michael Weber about the Nikon D3

Michael Weber, mostly known for his equipments tests, has posted a small review of the D3 at a forum (not on his site).

For those able to read German visit this link.

I don’t have the time to translate the full article, only so much: he was even thinking about the Canon MkIII but now he is absolutely euphoric about the D3 performance in every aspect: autofocus (probably beating the MkIII!), white balance, noise….

His conclusion: Nikon has rewarded all who stayed with Nikon….
