Last one!!!!

I almost forgot about this one. If you are like me you are always losing the TV remote! Very frustrating.
I've placed Rocky in charge of our remote.

Rocky takes his new job very seriously

Great shot Monty... look at those eyes sparkle at 1/80th and 180mm. Not too shabby at 6400 ISO either... We love our D700 cameras, don't we Monty...

Well said!
With the purchase of the 85, the dreaming of a D800 is over!
Yes, the D700 is a GREAT camera! The lenses help a bit too!

When I was at the cemetery a couple days ago, I was able to park where they'd been constructing the new sections of the cemetery, and came across the patterns of the machines, which reminded me of Monty's Webex shots that are now banned.

And on the way back, a sudden urge to go visit the outdoor area where Bonnie Raitt was playing. As long as you keep walking around on the sidewalks, security doesn't say anything, and you can listen to the music playing. I was busy shooting, and when I was done, ran into a very good friend of ours that had biked up for a while. It was good talking to someone "in my age group"

Pasquale, lovely images. Do you mind sharing your metering technique with your D40? I sold my D700 and now I am using D3200 that does not meter with my MF lenses. Do you use light meter? Thanks for sharing.

Rolf - the doorknob deserves its place in your collection. Bored? Not you.

Foggy - the pine and sunset are fantastic

Monty - now that you've fed your addiction again, beware of obsession. As you know it can get you into trouble Congrats from an envious Safrican.

Curtis - your horns are showing again. Instead of counselling reason and that everything is good in moderation you tempt us along the road to excess!!

Samy - the spider is so good that my mild arachnaphobia is forgotten for a while

Monty - flowers should be one of your interests. Good photograph of the water lily and they will never flip you the bird

Pasquale - good subjects and superb focus

Laura - all excellent images

Is that 105 f/1.8 AI-s calling to you Laura? Or perhaps one of the two 85 f/1.4 AI-s bargain lenses they list?

You're the one who gave me the devil statue, so you can hardly blame me for doing what everyone expects me to be doing... Especially when you're equally guilty...

Peter, I showed great restraint in not contacting Monty when prices dropped on that lens... I certainly can't help celebrating his decision once he made it. Trust me, if these lenses weren't so great I'd have no interest in recommending them. And everyone on this thread is making the same case, photo by photo, lens by lens. We're really all in this together...

Dear All,

Amazing photos in the last 24 hours.

Sami - Great Spider Shot, such beautiful colours and detail.

Monti - Great biker portraits and the waterlily is just lovely. Also congrats to your great-niece on her ribbon at the show.

Pasquale - love the "Flaps up" picture of the Mallard, brilliant pose. The Pink flowers also a great shot.

Foggy - lovely framing of the sun by the tree, that lens seems to handle the shooting into the light really well.

Curtis - Thankfully he's only shipping to CONUS or you would have cost me $2K on that 600mm lens you posted the link to. :-) Now I have to resist all the links and discussion on the 85 and 105mm and the temptation from Remi to order something from that store in Delft and a friend of mine who's recommended a store in Konstanz.

Kind regards,
Mark.

Well last night I was out in the countryside at a friends house where he was having a Brai and decided to try something I don't do often which is some star shots. I didn't have too much time so no startrail images of 60 stacked images but here's a couple. First is the 50mm at f4.0 and 10 seconds and second is the 28mm at f5.6 and 180 seconds.
Another area I need to work on my technique but I think the 50mm held up amazingly well here. The 28mm also did admirably and now I know which is the Polar star.

Last one is a landscape shot with the 50mm, it was a rare haze-free day and the view of the mountains was stunning.

Kind regards,
Mark.





50mm f1.2 at f4.0







28mm f2.8 @ f5.6
