Ben, just do it. I need someone to test one out on this thread so I can get some opinions. I have my eyes on an XE-1 or X-Pro1, 18/2, 23/1.4, and 35/1.4 for sometime in the future. I'd like a high quality mirrorless camera for the times I don't want to lug my DSLR around. But don't buy one yet, because I remember you saying you were broke a few pages back.


I've been looking for an in-between camera too. Something in between my LX-7 and my big and heavy DSLR + Lenses.

The XE-1, NEX-6/7, and OM-D are at the top of the list.

I really wish Nikon would come out with a DX-based mirrorless system that works well with my FX glass, but also has some dedicated mirrorless lenses that take advantage of that shorter register distance. The V2 is a step in the right direction, but their lenses are just not there yet and a 2.7x crop sensor may just be too small for me. Being able to slap on my 105/2.5 to whatever mirrorless body would be great - it would be even better if it was a body from Nikon.

Leighton, the snow-flakes are fantastic - love the contrasty B&W-processing!

Tony, great set! Love especially the first shot - typical TX400-look.

Never be home without your Honda 2000iu Generator. 20hrs now and have not used a gal of gas. Running the fridge, freezer, pellet stove and of course the TV and it is idling. No Internet on the iPhone either at the house. (Thanks AT&T) out to pick up a few supplies and maybe get a picture or two.

The good news is that my family in Lansdale PA - near Philly - were unharmed. No trees down and no power lost. Very grateful.

There's something about the first image of the church that I find super appealing! How do you find stitching with the 28? I don't have much success doing so, too much distortion for my rudimentary technique.


Philip, thanks for the comment. Bear in mind that I use a D200 so the 28 is equal to a 45mm on FX . My very first camera, a Yashica, had a 45mm lens (non interchangable), shows how old I am!

I'm pretty careful with staying on the same plane and keeping the focal point constant. While these aren't salon shots by any means, they work out OK. I very rarely print pictures and seem to spend more time these days transferring prints to electronic media!

GLWS Ryan, that's a heck of a lot of great gear to get rid of! I'd love the PC-Es but my wife's not convinced our 1 month old daughter will get much use out of them.

Also can't wait to hear your opinion of the new M. It's *almost* my dream camera, but not until EVFs get much better than they are now. Wasn't impressed with the Oly EVF, which is what Leica is rebadging for the M, as far as I know.

NOT noise in the image.


Leighton, as you can imagine we've spent a lot of time looking at CNN to make sure our "chickens" are OK and I could see the snow forecast for West Virginia. None of the maps showed Staunton but I was sure you'd get more than your share and remembering from last year just how much you "enjoyed" the snow I felt for you and your family. The pic is amazing though and looks like one of my early efforts at developing Tri X

I actually find even with a 50mm on my D700 that my stitching skills are miserable. I don't get any keepers until I use the 105mm f/1.8, and even then things are dicey.

Very nice series.

Philip, I think you're much more of a perfectionist than I am and a better photographer.

Thanks for the kind words. I had someone ask if the pic of the bass was cropped, its not. That morning I was trying different takes on perspective. Turns out the message at church was also about perspective. Made for an interesting day. My wife hates having her picture taken, but I really like how the shot came out. Little bit of a "Batman" angle, but I think it works.

Leighton, the future laying hens are nicely taken, just like Jed.
The 105/1.8 is indeed a very nice lens: fast, good image-quality and pretty compact (much smaller than the 135/2 for instance).



Thank you. The 135 f2 has long been on my list as soon as I saw the images Curtis first posted with it.

My top three on my wish list would be:
1. 85mm f1.4 AI-s
2. 135mm f2 AI-s
3. I can't make up my mind between the 28mm f2.8 or the 105mm f1.8.

Do you have a top 3 list? And for that matter, how about the rest of you?

Some lovely photos here! My first manual Nikon lens for about 2 decades! Just got hold of a lovely little 105 2.5 AiS and managed a quick snap in the garden before dark (D800E).

Lizzy, Beautiful image! Welcome to the thread. When I bought my 55mm f2.8 a couple of years ago, it too, was the first Nikon MF in over two decades for me. I fell back in love with these great lenses so much so, I don't even own an AF lens.

The 28mm hasn't been entirely unloved recently, I took it to the kids Halloween party yesterday - it's a nice focal length and the short focus throw makes it easier to keep up with fast moving targets, not helped that my son's first reaction to seeing my camera is to race up to it and either stick a sticky hand on the lens or to push the button that makes the clickety-clack noise.

With the 28mm having to shoot mainly wide open in a poorly lit building with crazy high ISO the results were pretty soft so I've tried to pull

Mark, lovely shot of your son! I like the 1st one the best!
