D300s With
AF-S Zoom- NIKKOR 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED

Hi Mak,

what sort of NN do you use, NN5? Or also NN3? I have to try to find lens data for you, 17-35 is not used every day as well as 14mm.:wink: You hear later on the day from me.

I Use NN5 with both the kit.

with my equipment lower rail setting is 60 for D300s, 61 for D700 on NN5. Test with your equipment: http://www.easypano.com/forum/display_topic_threads.asp?ForumID=1&TopicID=4162

For 14mm start to test upper rail setting at 100. I don't have a 14mm.

17-55 D300s NN5, data is set to special zoom setting:

17 @ 140, 20 @ 134, 24 @ 128, 28 @ 124, 35 @ 119, 45 @ 115, 55 @ 115

Test with your own setting. http://www.johnhpanos.com/epcalib.htm

Feel free to ask, welcome to the forum.

this is internet, both of us working on the same things though being apart around the world.

Lucky guy. I will just edit my last comment and on you go. Just wait for some moments. When I want to add links from my database in Safari, I loose the reply. So I have to place it, search for link, and add it via edit function.

the reason I tested my equipment for set ups is to get guys like you as quickly on the road as possible. Feel free to ask, success.

Best regards,

BTW: edited my earlier reply. You'll find the data in this reply.
