  4. I must say all the images are great but I dislike the OP use of the term "Old school DX".

    If you go back to the first post in the thread, it would appear the OP is looking for images from digital cameras that technology has largely "obsoleted'. To me, as I look at these images, and look at those from my old Canon Digital Elph and Nikon D60, they were and still are very capable. Don't know what would get the point across - From Digital Dinosaurs? Clearly, it is a moving target as tech advances. The thread is a great idea, I think, an exercise in appreciation of what we had and have now, regardless of the title. Just my opinion.
  6. The term "Old school DX" made me feel that the OP think using DX is old school and nowaday it's FX. Similarly to "Old school film" which I don't have problem with because film is old school but DX isn't.
  7. Old school here to be separated from new DX D500 and other series which is more than 12mp.
  8. So I think, Nikon D300s is latest model for "Old school DX" definition.

    ƒ/6.0 210.0 mm 1/500 200

  13. Another shot from my D1H. I was lucky to catch the tiny bee sucking flower pollen.
    Trackability of this old man attached to 105m+TC20 extremely poor. But the interesting point here is Nikon totally wrong when declaring that "Autofocus cannot be used".

  15. Which 105mm f/2.8 do you have-the 105mm f/2.8D or the 105mm f/2.8 AF-S VR?

    Nikon does not/has not/has never made a TC that will allow AF with the former lens(outside the 1.6x AF TC). It's a "screwdriver" lens, and Nikon has not made a TC with a screwdriver "pass through." There are 3rd party TC converters that do have this.

    On the other hand, I'm not surprised that any "E" teleconverter will allow AF on an AF-S lens.
  16. That is micro 105VR. Pls see below photo for full set.
  17. I'm not surprised that your AF-S Micro-Nikkor can AF with the TC.
  18. Just FYI, key point, Nikon officially declares it can not be used.
