I often think should have held on to the D3, this is with the 85/1.4ais, i see.

Thanks for noting the actual lens ID, I mislabelled the photo (now corrected).

The D3S is the generation model of choice for me, I still have at least one floating around but [too] rarely use it. I tried a full-spectrum conversion of the D3 that failed due to the internal shutter-LED monitor, and hence sold off the camera.

Winter night in the old parts of Oslo.
I like this high-ISO look, you are a past master of it.  Also the railroad tracks shot is [presumably] a lovely demo of what is accomplished with the tilt function. Many great 80/85 photos here.

Winter night in the old parts of Oslo. 85mm f/1.4 AIS AFD 85mm f/1.4 on the D3. A modern camera probably might reduce noise more, but hardly impact or improve the scene mood :D

Wow, what a great moody picture (and must have been slippery too  ;) ) !

Avoid sneakers or high heels and there should be little problem. The snow cover is thin on the ground :)

Sometimes Norwegian authorities surprise us. For example, by putting up megalithic monuments along roads crossing the mountain backbone of Norway. Still no idea why they do this other than making a "window" into the landscape view??

85mm f/2.8 PC-Nikkor on a D2X, B+W 403 filter. Neither UV nor IR, but nice nevertheless. The "window" monument itself is > 2m tall and must weigh tons. One of the glaciers in Jotunheimen, Smørstabbreen, is seen through the forced viewpoint.
