| p.1 #12 · Best Nikkors for 'artistic flare'? |
Going through 54,000 photos in Lightroom, I found about 100 that had some kind of interesting flare, most of them from my old 18-70 AF-S on the D70, and with the sun directly in the frame. My problem is an obsession with top-flight glass and Nano coating, so I've basically protected myself from the one thing I want to experiment with at the moment!
The Nikkor-H 85mm f/1.8 looks like a very nice lens, but doing a little research, I came across the Nikkor-Q 135mm f/3.5. 4 elements and 3 groups, single coated and a huge air gap, and a reputation for extreme flare! Ordered an EX+ copy off of KEH today for well under a hundred bucks shipped.
Hope to have it by the end of next week - will post some examples if I can coax it into bad behavior!
