Hi, As I posted a few weeks ago, I have a new D700 that I'm trying to learn. Right now I'm using a 28-105 and some old AI/AIS primes - 24, 35 and a 50 1.8 AF. The 28-105 is very soft, and the two primes, while quite sharp, quite frankly the color is very flat and lacking any pop. Jpegs from the camera aren't too good, and I'm not having much luck processing in ACR using D2X curves. My D80, when shot in NEF, and using either the 35 mm 1.8 and 50 mm 1.8 had very good color definition when using the D2X curves. Any idea on what I'm doing wrong? For a trip I'm taking north in May for deep forest photography, I'm renting a 16-35, hoping that the new nano-coatings or designed for digital may help. I'm going to try and post two images from this morning from my back yard. We've been having a heat-wave combined with a horrible drought - that combined with a hazy sky may somewhat be affecting the images.
