The thread's waiting for you too Jose And I see Ronny jumped in too!

Here's a flower cross posted from the Nikon manual focus thread, with the 105 2.5 AI + 2 X PK-13.

I rambled a bit with the 180 f/2.8 AI-s with a PK-13 extension tube attached. Here are a couple of images...



Today I'll take a spin with the 200 f/4 AI-s to see how it handles tubes. I know it will do just fine...

Thanks Kevin. That was in one of my neighbor's back yard. I often shoot roses at the front of their property and have even shared a few images with them so when the woman arrived home and saw me shooting at the sidewalk she urged me to follow her to the back yard. She was a bit disappointed in the condition of the roses after a few very hot days, but I loved how the light fell on that rose. It worked. Glad you liked it. I sent it to her but haven't heard back.

From today with the 200 f/4 AI-s and PK-13. I'm awaiting delivery of a Q.C. AI'd version of that lens and wanted to remind myself what shooting at that focal length feels like. The 180 f/2.8 AI-s balances beautifully on the D700 but the 200 f/4 is a bit small and feels awkward in comparison. But it is a really excellent lens and can be found at ridiculously low prices.

Something a bit different...


And back to flowers...

Curtis, some great imaging with tubes. The one with the Porsche sign's different all right from your flowers, but fun.

Here's a couple recent ones, both the Nikon 135 f2 AI with the PN-11 (about 57mm) extension tube.

The 135 f/2 with tubes kills, but so does the 135 f/2.8 remarkably. In fact, I didn't really find much use for the slower lens until after I'd tried it with an extension tube. I have the AI which has a 270 degree focus throw that is perfect for this kind of work. The AI f/2 is also 270 but I don't know about the AI-s.

Here's a reprieve of a shot taken with the f/2.8 with a 12mm Vivitar tube. I began shooting with that lens after spending a few hours with a Voigtlander 125 f/2.5 macro lens. I liked it but not $2,000 worth of liking... The 135 seemed like a much better "investment."

Lots of choices for 135s Curtis amongst Nikons, and they are all good. My first manual lens was the 135 2.8 Series E, and I liked that so much there's a few more now The 135 f2 AI is definitely 270 deg throw, and great for macros. Only time I don't like the longer AI throw is when taking photos of a bird for example, they don't have the patience for a 270 deg rotation

Couple more flower macros for today, Nikon 5.8cm 1.4S + 2X PK-13s (~57mm)

That last one is a killer Samy... almost too delicious for words. I love it. Fifty sharp pixels and unending bokeh...

Wow, too many great images from everybody since my last visit here. Congrats to all.

This is a bokeh playing with the old Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K wide open + 52.5mm tube:

I like it! I also love that you use a D7000...gives me something to strive for with mine.

Thanks
Kevin : Great set

Zeiss 85 is perhaps not really made for extension tubes
but it is interesting to test

Great shots with tubes folks, this is a really fun thread! Ronny, I don't think the Nikon 5.8cm 1.4 was made with extension tubes in mind either, but it doesn't seem to mind getting up to 57mm tacked on
