    Glenn, I noticed over at dpreview.com they had a review of the 70-200 VR and noted some of the vignetting issues on the FX sensor you mentioned when you first got the D3. Basicalliy they said that it is a superb lens for DX cameras but in conjuction with the D3 it offers "less impressive performance on FX format - marred by soft corners and vignetting."

    Is that vignetting we're seeing in the picture above and example of that problem? Or did you add it later to frame the image?

    I've found that it's really only noticable in images like the one I posted above where you've got very plain backgrounds of a single color. There is a problem, but what you see above is my own doing. I purposely increased the vignetting in Lightroom. I'm kind of proud of that image overall, but I'm not sure I like it vignetted like that. I decided I'd leave it for a few days and look at it every so often to decide how I felt about it. Part of me thinks it helps the image, part of me is indifferent. There's another one with a similar vignette job in the Red Bull thread.
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    The wife and I were out on the pier. I was teaching her to use my D200 as I was toting around my D3. Both of us were taking pictures right and left. When we entered the building that houses the carousel, we were told by an employee that we were not allowed to take photographs. I immediately took a look around and noticed several other people using digital SLR cameras to take photographs and asked if they'd been informed of the restriction. The woman told me that they were obviously not professionals, and that they were okay. She also stated that my wife's Canon point-and-shoot (she always carries it in her purse) is okay as well.

    Essentially, this woman assumed that I must be a pro taking pictures with intent to sell because my camera is bigger than everyone else's. To me, that's like assuming a woman is in porn because she's got huge knockers or assuming she's in rap videos because she's got a huge jiggling ass.

    I got pretty pissed (to the point where I felt bad later and went back and apologized to the employee who was really only doing her job). Eventually, I found my way to the SM Pier offices and discussed my issues with the staff. They gave me a permit on-the-spot, and told me the reason they have the rule is because they don't want the paparazzi around when celebrities show up. When I told her I'd been all over the pier for two hours taking pictures, she told me that the reason security guards didn't boot me earlier was because there was some television shoot going on there and people probably assumed I was with the production crew.

    What a load of CRAP!

    Incidentally, the permit restricts me from selling any images that are taken on the pier/of the pier and states that any images taken are the property of the City of Santa Monica. How the hell can they get away with that crap legally in a public place?!?!

    That's twice now that I've been run out of public places because my camera is too conspicuous. It is INFURIATING.
    Worthy of a look. The Photographers Rights.

    Also, just 15 minutes south of Philly is tax-free shopping. That can inspire a person to do some pretty impulsive things.

    Just sayin'

    I just read another incident about the Strobist guy being hassled because he had a tripod. They thought he must be some kind of terrorist for bringing it into the hotel he was staying at. There is way too much paranoia and it's targetting the wrong people.
