  1. Jared, have you talked to Adobe/Nikon about this automatically applied profile correction crap? It's soooo annoying. They do it on DJI raw files too.

  2. Good grief, show us the lenses and their images, not your face. And stop shouting. And leave out the painfully unfunny attempts at humor.

  3. Hey Jared, Considering retiring my Nikon d750 and purchasing the Z6 or Z7. Two questions… Which would you recommend between the 2 models? Also, I do a bunch of nighttime shooting, ie light painting, in general, for regular daytime shooting, sunsets and night shooting, does the banding create and issue? Also, how is auto focus in dimmer lights? (ok, that was 3 questions, not 2 😉 ) Thanks for any input on subjects.

  4. but at f4 you didn't show us the real difference , you talked about fringing, but color fringing is so correctable in lightroom

  5. the 14 to 24 f2.8 was legendary when it was born, i bought it for my D3, if you own it you know at f4 it starts being a legend !! end of my story

  6. I was worried about the folding mechanism in the 24-70 f4 S, but after using it for a few months I have not noticed any wear and tear on that mechanism. Also, I have become completely used to un-clicking the lens, and I love how much smaller it makes the lens. It honestly makes the 14-30 F4 S more attractive to me since it has incorporated this mechanism.

  7. I’m watching back this review again, after DxO has updated their lens database recently. From the video it is obviously that 14-40mm is sharper than 14-24mm, however in DxO, the score (both total and sharpness) is lower than the later (24 vs 31). Any explanation Jared?

  8. Jared, I see you point about aperture but I need my 2.8 for astronomy photography. I never would have captured shots like this without it!

  9. or is the 24-105mm in the road map the use of the zoom is strange with crants at the beginning and the end of the curves.

  10. Everyone knows that if you shoot landscape wide, you want to focus on the mountain’s eye, the mountain’s eye should be sharp and everything else should be blurry, so the 2.8 is better and actually you should shoot mountains with a 1.2 wide open.

  11. I have all ready ordered one, coming in mail, but Fuck Fro, 22 minutes and no answer one way or the other. Time will tell hahahaha

  12. Such a nice range with filter option on the 14-30, but love the 2.8 of the 14-24 of course. The FTZ adapter does add bulk to it when using a non Z lenses on the Z bodies though.

  13. Why do you hate the auto correction? Would you leave your images with distortion? Guess not.
    There you go then, it’s one less step on your workflow, good times.
    Peace.

  14. Why do you hate the auto correction? Would you leave your images with distortion? Guess not.
    There you go then, it’s one less step on your workflow, good times.
    Peace.

    Peace.

  16. I really like your show but your annoying rants about things that don't really matter to 90% of people is getting old. Video after video…after…
    Is it something that is going to break? What qualifies you to even ask that question?
    There are much better reviews about Z lenses in comparison.
    Videos like this make you sound discredited.

  17. Honestly after watching your video i bought 14-24 right away. I dont like experimenting much, i have a crush with 2.8 n i m Loving it the legend. It is tested tough at all conditions weather since 13 years around the globe. This lens took milions of happy pictures around the globe. So 2.8 is tried and tested 👍🏽

  18. I am using the f4 between the two, but I am waiting for the new 2.8 before I spend any money. Jared honestly just use the 12-24 for now, when you have had a chance compare all three then make the choice.

  19. We own the 14 2.8 and the 14-24 2.8. I use both very frequently. I especially like shooting live bands while on-stage. I prefer to shoot f/8 when possible to get very close features and features up to 10-12 feet all tack sharp. Do you have a feel for how the 14-30 compares to my 2 lenses at f/8 or 5.6?

  20. fantastic review one of the best I've seen in a while, I have the Hebrew trinity and evaluating to sell all three and get a Z6 with the 24-70 and 14-30 Z lenses and call it a day for now OR keep my Hebrew trinity and use the Z6??? I agree Lightroom give us the option leave my image alone

  21. The automatic corrections are ridiculous, there should be a way to turn it off, the reason some people get this kind of gear is to have control, auto corrections are for smartphones

  22. correcting a barrel distortion is not doing a crop. The barrel distortion consists in capturing a wider angle than wished for example the angle of a 12° insread of a 14°. The correction consists in « flatening » the image and removing the part which is out of the wished angle of view.
    Correcting a pincushion distortion is a real crop.
