Hi Bob,
I am a fan of your photos.
In a topic at dpreview i saw that you have and use both 200mm f2 VR and zeiss apo sonnar 135mm.I also have zeiss apo sonnar and find it very hard to focus especially wide open on portrait work.But when i use it on tripod for landscape work it is my best lens of 33 lenses :)
The thing i want to know is could you please compare 200mm f2 with it about sharpness contrast bokeh and rendering?I know they are different focals but as a pixel peeper i need to know their differences.

By the way please answer through my mail adress

Really like all your photos
Been looking at some you shot with 200mm f2.
I'm wanting this lens also......Do you tend to use this lens often?

Thank You

Hi Bob,

Thanks for visiting my black light gallery and taking the time to comment! After seeing your galleries, I think I could convince my wife to move to Fresno. So many great images and great places to shoot nearby; and the air is so much better than smoggy LA. I'll return often to see what you've been shooting.

Oscar A.Rico11-Apr-2008 02:48
Dear Bob: This is Oscar Rico, hopping you remembers me from the meeting over Mike Wong studio. I am sending this note asking if you can please give me a call to discuss details regarding the D3. My home phone number is 408-779-5859, or if you must prefer that me to call you, please send me you phone number and I will call you back. Basically I need to make a decision of keeping the D3 or selling it to get the D300. In order to make my move I need to talk to you because you were exposed to the D3 and also appreciate your understanding about photography. Sorry for this way of getting in contact with you, but it is the only way for me. If this request impose to you by any means disregard it, and I will understand without any problems on my part. Warm Regards: Oscar Rico
Tony 16-Mar-2008 19:41
Thank you for an excellent gallery of images showing the expectation and potential of the Nikon D3. Your Portfolio is refreshing in that is shows profesional quality, and a home warmth to your subjects.

I enjoyed looking at your galleries. Nice work. I used to visit Fresno several times a year to visit my parents. They have since moved to So. Cal. Nice city, but a little too hot in the summer and a little too cold in the winter. But you are close to Yosemtie.
Guest 27-Dec-2007 01:30

Hi Dr. Bernstein,

Just browsing thru the beautiful gallery, it is just amazing, you have really perfected the art. Love your pictures, Happy Holidays to you and the family.

Fred Levine 14-Dec-2007 16:45

I am a D2x shooter and am considering the the D3. I am a people shooter Portraits and Events) Much of what I do is outdoors and I need the LOWER ISO. It appears the lowest ISO in native ISO is 200 which seems like a step backwards. The D2x is 100 and the Canons (Mark II DS0 is ISO 50.

Have you had any experiance at the lower ISO with the D3?
Guest 09-Dec-2007 08:51
Hi Robert ... you've got such nice gear there :o) nice to see a Nikon Friend at work, especially when you're trying to catch some nice Lighthouse expression during a fogy evening :D Great work man and I guess ... that now it become a time for your studio workshop, isn't what you dream about? I've seen your 1st attempts and I though it might be nice to see some effects of your "composition talent" from that. Hope to watch that soon :o)

Cheers,. Jerry
Liz Stanley07-Nov-2007 18:03
Thanks for visiting my gallery - I checked out your backyard gallery and I love the acorn woodpecker! We don't have those here in the midwest. Also, the kestrel is adorable - I assume you have a falconer friend.
Guest 27-Jun-2007 14:10
I'm jealous of how good you are.
Pierre Schneider11-Jun-2007 20:25
Excellent animal shots. The 200-400 seems to be an excellent lens. My dream.
Great galleries. Because you are a nikonist and I love your pics you are now in my fav.
Take care.

Hi, dad!

I just found out that my vacation time will be From July 24 to August 5. I know that you probably won't be able to come, but I jsut wanted to give you a heads up.

Guest 03-Jul-2006 15:52
hey, dad--

was just milling through pbase, and found this pretty cool gallery...thought that you might be interested:

miss you,
Guest 12-Jun-2006 15:45
Your photos are certainly refreshing. Can't say pbase has any thing quite like it.
Guest 03-May-2006 12:49
Hi RB,

Just purchased the 200-400 and was wondering if there is a protective lens cap supplied with it. Could find one apart from a slip-on 'soft' pouch..

thanks and regards,

Hi RB,

Do you think D2x's lens mount can handle the weight of 200-400? i currently carry the 200-400 using the strap comes with the lens and mounted on the lens but its not really convineint so I'm thinking using the camera's strap on camera only. Will the weight tear the lens mount apart?? thanks! please reply to my email:

Hi RB,
Thanks for your comments on my night heron shots with the gopher.It is amazing how similar our shot is on one of our images.I really enjoyed your galleries.You ask where I took my shots.They were at the Palace Of Fine Arts in San Francisco.I live in the El Cerrito area of Northern Cal. Greg
Guest 06-Aug-2005 10:10
Hi RB,

I took the time to look at most of your photo's and galleries as you do have some really great images. Likewise keep up the excellent work and it appears that you not only live in an ideal location but have the equipment to take great photo's.

RB: You have some lovely galleries here, especially your dragonfly gallery. I want to thank you so much for the wonderful comments you left me on my Macro gallery. I am on vacation and this was the first chance I had to see the comments you left me. I have been very pleased with the 70-200VR and 500D combination, but it is heavy. I bought the 500D to use while hiking, so I have the benefit of a macro lens without having to carry the extra lens.
Guest 23-Jul-2005 18:50
If you want to see a beautiful gallery you should look at!!!Strongly recommended.
George Vlahakis19-Jul-2005 04:53
Hi RB,

Thanks for the kind comment. I love both the 200-400 and the 600. Probably use the 200-400 more due to ease of carry in the mountains where I shoot. I have seen a number of your shots on dpreview. The herons are wonderful, especially the one doing rodenticide. Keep the good work coming.

jbfresno17-Jul-2005 08:07
Dear RB,
What a gallery! I LOVED it. Your subjects, composition, creativity, and the passion of nature that you reflect is beautiful. Many thanks.
Debi Ruud 05-Jul-2005 14:25
Hi...Thanks for the great band photos. I also enjoyed your other photos as well!!! Thanks for the hard copies!!!
John v.d.h30-Jun-2005 17:10
Good Morning:

Many thanks for your long email, much appreciated. I feel that we are probably in the same class of 2005. I am also a amateur, and yes $8,000.00 Canadian including taxes for the 200-400Vr was and is a lot of money, but boy what a lens.

Go to the opening page at I just placed my image on top as you did sitting and resting in the snow.


Enjoy your lens, we are very very fortunate to be able to own this lens.

Wishing you a Happy July 04 Weekend
Guest 29-Jun-2005 12:41

nice homepage you've got!
keep up the good work

Cowichan Valley Camera Club12-Jun-2005 15:03
Many thanks for your input on dpreview. I have been reading so much about the 200-400VR, mostly positive.

Thanks you.
Guest 19-May-2005 02:22
I very much enjoyed your galleries. You are creative in all you compositions, and I'll be sure to visit quite often. I especilly enjoyed you Hunting Heron gallery, very fine work and exciting too. Keep up the great work
Guest 11-May-2005 21:16
Thanks for stopping by my gallery this morning - great heron hunting gallery!! I have never seen a heron eating a small mammal in person before, you're lucky to have witnessed that and gotten some great images.
