Thought I'd start this thread for anyone who posts on the amazing "Manual Focus Nikon Glass" thread started by Curtis who is shooting with alt cameras & lenses as well from time to time

Hopefully some of the NMF "family" will post some alt images here !!

Great idea, though this is a thread where all I can do is appreciate other's work. At least to this point in my photography, I have no alternative gear with which to play. But I'll certainly love seeing what my friends are up to. Good luck Dean. And don't forget to keep rowing... it can take time to develop a core of participants to a thread. This is a great opportunity for friends to spend time together when away from the Manual Focus Nikon Glass thread... it is encouraged in fact... Have fun everyone!

You may buy that Zeiss yet, Curtis ... however knowing you one Zeiss may turn into 20 after not too long

Here's a super Alt image ... X-Pro 1 with a Leica 50mm Summilux-M ASPH.

Whilst I liked this lens, I sold it last month and bought two return tickets to Italy for my wife and I . Thought it was better use of the funds !!

Great idea Dean - now I have an outlet for when I'm feeling MF guilt from using my AF glass . . . .

I'll post some later.

Great idea and congrats! I promise to become a contributor after recovering from my recent hip replacement. I'd suggest to make the thread more focused, to contribute only if camera or lens are Nikon: i.e. Nikon camera with ALT glass or Nikon glass with ALT camera.

Dean, thanks for starting this thread up (and with top-notch photographs)!

Mihai, nice to see you here, hope everything is well!

A question: is posting images taken with Leica-glass on a Nikon-DSLR allowed and could I post pictures taken with a Nikkor-lens equipped Zenza-Bronica medium-format camera? Unfortunately I don't have LF-Nikkor glass ;-)

Glad to see you are recovering well, Mihai. Always been a fan of your work and can't wait to see more !!

But then I'd have to delete all my posts

Georg, you can post absolutely anything here ... just a place for the the NMFG regulars to share some images that can't be posted on the NMFG thread.

I guess being in the Alt forum, no Nikon bodies with Nikon lenses or Canon bodies with Canon lenses, but everything else is fine.

I'm sure everyone would love to see your medium format images and Leica lenses on Nikon bodies !!

Got me some Rokinon shots - not AF, not Nikon MF, so I guess they need to go here (other than the automotive thread)?

Yes, I finally understand this now.

I bought one Zeiss lens and then another. Apparently it was a breeding pair and now the lil' f*ckers are all over the house.

Think this will fly with my wife ?

Zeiss addiction is tough to cure and I have it bad. (maybe one of the worst).

A lot of through Zeiss glass in here and especially 2012

I hope this thread generates some interest. It was disappointing to not even be able to simply talk about Nikon manual focus lenses in a Nikon manual focus lens thread just because I use them on a 40D. It would be nice to have somewhere to post questions or comments that don't warrant their own threads.

Worse addiction would be Leica. Speaking from experience.
I'm curious, was this thread started on the Nikon board and booted over here?

Nikkor 5cm/1.4 LTM on Leica M9:

I just received a new lens this evening, a Bower (samyang, rokinon) 35mm F1.4 lens. I can't believe the quality you get for $379! I haven't tested it yet to see if I have a good copy, but with my first image, I can see that I'll be very pleased after testing.

Here's my first shot, an obligatory dog photo. Shot wide open at f1.4 with bad light.

I'll be heading up into the mountains tomorrow for some landscape photography, the main reason I bought this lens.

is the Bower chipped? When I checked the photo showed a chipped lens, but the description didn't mention it. So I skipped it.

Hope their 24mm f/1.4 will go on sale That's the one I really want.

one with the Rokinon 14/2.8 - have to get me that PTLens correction plugin to fix that funky distrotion. Most images you can't see it, but here it's quite obvious

Yes, the Bower 35mm F1.4 is chipped in the Nikon mount. Full control of aperture and full EXIF data
