Nikon 28mm f/1.4E Aperture Series: Fishing Boats at Dawn, Lundy Lake

See my Nikon wishlist and get Nikon 28mm f/1.4E at B&H Photo.

This series tests the Nikon 28mm f/1.4E from near to very far range and includes a 4-frame focus stack at f/9, which is very interesting to compare to f/9 and f/13—it shows the limits of depth of field and why focus stacking should be a priority for many photographers.

Nikon 28mm f/1.4E ED Aperture Series: Fishing Boats at Dawn, Lundy Lake

Includes images up to full camera resolution from f/1.4 through f/13 including the 4-frame focus stack image (Using Zerene Stacker), which is very impressive in what it delivers. I was lucky in having relatively still conditions so that touchup from motion issues was not hard.
