Nice set, Peter!

I'm already a few weeks back from my trip to South-West Africa. I took a few MF-lenses with me bud I relied most times on my AF-lenses.
We did a trip to the wine region north of Cape Town and that day I had only MF-lenses with me.

I couldn't catch up with all the pages but I saw quite a few great images!!

Tony, interesting to see the Greek writing on an Egyptian Temple in Spain??

Very nice series.


Thanks Peter, yes it is strange isn't it! I was trying to remember the story (when I shoot digital I just snap a shot of the placard near something like this). I think it is very early graffiti... but could be wrong.

Phillippe - it's small, light, and very easy to use. The cafe shots were taken wide open. And it cost about $80........it's ridiculous. Read Bjorn's review - he loves it.

Ben, I wouldn't touch the Fuji cameras just yet. I have a feeling we're finally headed towards small FX options in Nikon land, as the Nikon 1 series can't be Nikon's only mirrorless cameras. Maybe we'll get DX first (in fact, almost certainly), but even that is more appealing to me than a different system.

My trick for getting some usable shots was to let the cyclists entire my focal plane (when taking shots roughly head on to them) or to pre-focus on a rider that I didn't shoot when I was orthogonal to them. The latter is indeed really tough,

Philip - yes it's warming up here - but we have to wear helmets - so you don't get the wind in the hair/reflected light effect - everyone looks the same in their helmets (especially when they're out of focus).

As for the Fuji XE 1 - I know about the RAW converter problem, but that's not a deal breaker. I agree that Nikon will eventually release a mirrorless - but I suspect it may be a year or two off. And don't get me wrong - I love the D800E - it is a seriously fantastic camera - but all these Sony cmos sensors are getting me down. I like the idea that the fuji has a different sensor/different look. That cafe I took the shots at was the size of a phone booth, it's tiny, just a hole in the wall. When I took out the D800E it filled up half the room.

Georg the XE1 is the baby brother of the X Pro 1 (it's smaller and doesn't have an optical viewfinder but otherwise it's the same camera). Alan - I'm always broke because I keep buying stuff (I can't resist phones either).

The guy in the photo shop knows me - after I played with it for a while and he saw I was hooked, he said, look, you know you're going to buy it - but I surprised him. I resisted (but the shop's round the corner from my office and, let's face it, I'm weak).

Philippe, I always enjoy your work with the 28 and 180. But I think it's high time you invest in some more MF Nikkors.

Some shots with extension tubes and the 180 2.8 AIS. These are with the PN11 + 2 PK-13s for a total of about 108mm tubes.

Tried to shore up lighting in lieu of a macro flash with two cheapo studio lights near the subject, along with the SB-800 flash mounted onboard.

Lizzie,
What an introduction! Welcome to this little thread.

Ryan,
I see that the 8mm was not for sale, and I didn't see your 35/1.4 either, if you still have it.

John,
Glad that you and yours were safe from any big waves.

All those on the east coast: glad to hear good reports of safety.

My top 3 list is really a top 4, but could easily become a top 6-8...
1. 35/1.4 AI-S (again)
2. 85/1.4 AI-S
3. 135/2 AI-S
4. 500/4 AI-P
5. 105/1.8 AI-S
6. 28/2.8 AI-S
7. 58/1.2
8. 24mm TS

That's would be an embarrassment of riches though, and I certainly don't need them. I really want to get back a 35 though.

Nice Alan, but with your recently acquired 300mm f2.8 you better not show your wife this list!
