Took the D3 for a walk on the beach, with a short roll. I am a fan of the D series. Wanted to check what the lens could do, combined with a new little film scanner.
Aperture f/8 at 1/250, hazy late afternoon.
Full (half) frame:
Central scan at 10,000 dpi (according to the scanner software):
We all know that these D cameras have good lenses. But lens sharpness seems at least the equal of film grain and scanner definition. Not bad.
Film was FP4+ in Beutler, so not really a very fine grain test. Should try with TMX or Delta 100.
