This is an update of high iso images taken during Osaka 2007. All images are captured with Nikon D3 at ISO 5000. Lens used is believed to be Nikon 600mm F4. Images are resized to smaller resolution for faster loading. Each image has been cropped at 100% or believed to be close to 100%.
Noise in the cropped images is reduced in Photoshop CS3 NoiseNinja plugin.
This is currently one of the most affordable Super-Telephoto lens by Nikon. If this lens was announced 8 years ago, I will not pay any attention at all because at then DSLRs’ ISO1600 was mostly a marketing strategy and was only good for Black and White prints. These days, for amateur photographers, f5.6 coupled with any midrange DSLRs’ ISO3200 or even ISO6400, one will be able to get a decent shutter speed for wildlife or sports photography.
