Well the camera has a lovely balance with with the 50mm, however with the 28-70mm f/2.8 and the 70-200mm afsvr, the camera gets clumsy. utilizing the battery grip evens it back out.
I am not sure if it's cause i want to see it, or if i am truly seeing a big difference in the quality of images. But the clarity of the images is something that blows my mind every time i look at the raw images. What i am going to do, is set up the D700 and D1X with the same lens and shoot the same set, then compare images. (i'll post the results.)
but here are the initial images from my modeling guinea pigs.
I gotta tell ya, it's so nice having my focal lengths back to normal...50mm is 50mm.
