The only one I'd add to the list you offer David is the controversial Ken Rockwell whose years of experience with Nikon manual focus glass makes him an excellent resource. Here's a link to his reviews of MF glass.

Take what you like and leave the rest... as they say in the 12 Steps...

Thanks Curtis.
I know Ken is a bit controversial, but I read his reviews and comments...

We all must ultimately make our own decisions about what to add to our kits and I find it useful to gather as much information as possible as I'm assessing what is available on the market. I perhaps give greatest weight to what Bjorn has to say but I read as much as I can from as many sources as possible. I'm pretty satisfied with how my kit came together based on all the information I've reviewed. Of course, the process also required a great deal of attention to the Buy and Sell board, craigslist and E-Bay. That is all part of the pleasure of this particular adventure.

Happy reading/shopping Monty...

Now its time to take a closer look at Abobe CS 6 Design/Web Premium that just finished downloading... mmm good.

***** BLOG UPDATE *****

Here are Philippe's blog post's numbers 8,9 and10. Some beautiful work in here, and I don't think some of them have been posted on here.

Just so you'll know, I post them individually in case you want to comment on them. It's easier this way, as the comment box comes up at the bottom.

With 105 2.5 AI and 200 F4 AIS.

Curtis, thanks for posting the link for the differences amongst the lens types. While taking these pictures, I was able to finally tell the difference between AI and AIS lenses



Samy, I like your "summer harvest" still life.

Ray these are GREAT! Especially the Osprey. I remember when you used to share using your 100-300mm, those were good, but these are fantastic, you really have taken it up a notch, well done!

I added a 28-45mm f4.5 AI. Paid a bit more than the 35-70mm but I guess it calmed down my NMFAS a bit.

Congrats Chuong, looking forward to seeing images from it. I thought about this one when I was looking for a zoom in this range, but ended up with the 28-50 f3.5. I'm interested in seeing if there's any difference.

I had to pull the shot back up Ben. I love it! I might have cropped it so we saw the double image of the two men in the distance up closer. That would be fun...



thanks Curts - thanks everyone for the kind comments.

Curtis - yeah that's what I thought about the double image too - actually because it's the 55mm I started out wide open and blurred everything. It's so much fun to play with the bokeh on that lens but yeah, sometimes it's too much. The double images were fun, like you say, - and just right and symmetrical. This was a bit messier and there's something unsettling about the guy in the foreground because he's in the reflection but not on the street - my eye doesn't know where to look and keeps checking back and forth from the window to the street.

Some great pics from Olympic NP, John. I had the opportunity to get up there for only a few hours about seven years ago, absolutely loved it and your pictures are bringing back a longing to be there again. The Olympic Peninsula is just such a great place to visit with such variety from surf to rainforect to mountain and all of that, reasonly tightly packed together.

Looking forward to more pics.

the scenery is spectacular - I know that helps - but you've done a great job in capturing that.The air feels crystalline, the light is perfect - everything so sharp - and wonderful compostions that let us roam freely across the frame. mmmmmm
