Curtis I am so glad you finally got your lens. I love the portrait. He has kind eyes.


He's the director of the non-profit where I volunteer and has been working with the dying for thirty years. He's a good man and a very good friend even if his idea of taking a good photo is handing me his point and shoot, then asking me to posh the button. That actually happened a few weeks ago. He figured that if I took a candid shot of him while we were on the hiking trail with his camera rather than my "big" D700 that he'd be more relaxed. It sort of worked, though I've always felt I got good photos of him. But boy has working with a real camera spoiled me. That Canon point and shoot felt like a toy, which I guess it really is...

I was "resting" when I heard a truck stop in front of my home. I struggled to my feet from a place halfway between waking and sleeping and headed out the door. Yes, it was the D800 which I removed from the B&H carton, then the Nikon box. I checked the battery and found it had almost a 50% charge so put on the strap, found a CF card, mounted the 135 f/2 AI-s, set up the non-CPU register and headed outside. It took me a few moments to realize my problem finding focus had to do with the way the diopter was set. Once I got that working I was off to the races.

I've read that folks had trouble nailing focus and I certainly was challenged, though I was shooting at f/2 which doesn't make it any easier. I took 21 photos and tossed away six. My iMac labored to download the images using Lightroom 4 and rendering within LR was much slower. I don't have the fastest processor by my iMac is a recent model loaded with maximum RAM, 16GB. What a difference from loading D700 files.

Here is a close crop of a photo at my neighbor's home down the street, the ones with rose bushes running the length of a picket fence that I keep gong back to . This rose was nestled on the back side of one of the bushes.


These files are HUGE. I'm glad I have a few days to experiment with different lenses in different situations. It is a beautiful camera, no doubt. I have much to learn.

One more... this time a rose on the opposite side of the bush that extends through the picket fence toward the sidewalk. With apologies to Peter, this is primarily out of focus with a thin slice of flower...

135 f/2 AI-s wide open...

I thought it might be fun to try a pano using the 16mm 3.5. This is Lake Mirror In Lakeland Florida I used 4 shots stiched together.

So I had lunch with a friend who isn't a photographer and who at times gets quite frustrated when he is among us and we begin talking technical stuff. He'd known about the saga of this lens, though I don't think it troubled him much. He took me to lunch today and I had my camera with the 55 f/1.2 SC AI'd mounted and couldn't resist taking a photo of him as we waited for our food. I often take photos of him but he seldom likes what I've shot. I've no idea how he'll react to this candid shot.

Great capture Curtis. Nice sharp focus on the eyes!
It's it fun taking a camera all (or most) of the time!

i have ever met. Doesn't use his claws...ploops down in submissive poses to all the other cats, and then charms them with his vocals and gentle paw strokes. This morning a squirrel literally walked up to the window, and went nose to nose with Charlie separated by the glass alone. Here is a link to Ciara, and Charlie enjoying their big screen tv.PHOTO



James, I love this picture of Charlie. He looks a lot like the first cat we ever had. Our cats don't go outside, which means it's hard to get nice light on them like this...

Nice b&w of Rocky. He looks relaxed but there is energy in his eyes. Looks like he is thinking about something.

Trying to pull together some MF lenses for use on my D700. Im thinking an 85mm and a 135mm for portraiture

I know this sounds silly but is the general consensus that the 135 f2 AIS and the 85 1.4 AIS are the 'go-to' lenses at this FL? I also need something fixed and in the 20-30mm range. Something 24-28mm ish.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all.

Congrats Curtis on the D800 but more so on the 55mm 1.2 SC, glad the saga is over, welcome to the club! (D800+55mm 1.2 )

This one is for Monty - a bike shot! I can always pick out my bike in the rack since the seat is several inches higher than everyone else's...

A couple of cat photos, to continue the theme.

This is Iris, in her favorite hangout on the couch while my son is reading:



This is Minerva (aka Mini, though she's not small):
