The latest Nikkors are awesome, but that doesn't mean the AF-D lenses can't come out of the bag

Show some love for the AF-D's

Here's Dickens Texes through the 28mm/f2.8D-AF on a Nikon Df:

These lenses are still great! This is from my 17-35 f/2.8D AFS with the Df. When I returned home from this trip I had to send the lens into APS to fix hitching in the zooming range and miscommunication of the zoom focal length to metadata. I love this lens and it cost just under $400 to fix. A good used one is still in the $700-1000 range so it was worth it to me. I haven't seen any reason to replace this lens or my 28-70 f/2.8D AFS.

BTW, this image has had no post processing yet. It is straight from the RAW file. I will do PP but still liked it enough to share.

Thanks for looking.

Ken

I don't care much for the latest lenses. My only two Af lenses are AF-D.
85mmf1,4 AF-D and 80-200 f2,8 AF-D. Thinking of replacing the latter though, but certainly not the 85mm

I have the AF 85mm 1.4D and wouldn't replace it either, even though I have the AFS 70-200 f4 and the manual focus 85mm PC-E lenses in that focal length. Though the PC-E is very cool there is something about the f/1.4. Just not the same.

Nothing really is quite the same as the 85mm f1,4 AFD. I have to admit, to get the most out of that lens, I have to give it to my girlfriend who knows better how to use it then I do, but still, it's a formidable lens, even in my hands.

I do envy you for the 85mm f2,8 PC lens though. Would really love to get my hands on one, because it offers some vreative possibilities other lenses do not offer. It is another very unique tool, and personally, I never thought manual focus was a disadvantage
