Two things about this shot. It's the first time I've used ISO 50 with the D600. And it was shot with the 50-135mm f3.5 wide open. I don't want to go on about the D600 because it's OT. But I believe I was missing some shots with my D7000 because of a green dot focus indicator that was not calibrated correctly. When I first got my D7000 it had the back focus issue much discussed in the forums. I sent it to Nikon and they said they fixed it. But from time-to time, I would miss focus even though I really tried with the green dot.

I don't know why I rambled on about that except to say how pleased I've been with the focus on this camera.

Oh yea, have I mentioned how much I love my 50-135mm lately!

Backing out of the driveway this morning I was thinking how cool things looked with the fog. Then I saw this fellow riding down the sidewalk. I stopped, unrolled the window and shot two pictures. I was right on the sidewalk, I wonder what he thought....

The railroad tracks and this portrait with the 50-135 really sing Leighton. I don't think there is anything wrong with singing the praises of the D600 on this thread simply because you're mating it with MF lenses and showing us how they perform on this latest camera. We're all interested. Your work is first rate. I'm amazed at how high quality is on this thread from everyone participating.

I succumbed to the temptation and after a couple of failed attempts bought Nikki's older sister, the H version of the 85 f/1.8 lens, converted with the Nikon kit. In fact, I eventually bought a lens that I lost a few weeks before when someone exceeded my maximum bid. She sheepishly announced when she re-listed the time that it didn't fit her camera. I ended up buying it for less that my previous bid. Here are a couple of photos taken from the advert. I post it because the lens arrived this afternoon and it sitting on my desk. It is no pristine but is in much better shape than the photos suggest. The glass is perfect.




I know Bjorn gives a rating to the later version with multi-coating but finding one of those with the AI conversion kit is like looking for a needle in the haystack. If one comes my way, I'll be interested if the money makes sense. In the meantime I'll play with this lens. Perhaps when Nikki arrives I'll do some comparisons. This lens comes with a hood, so perhaps that will help with stray light. I think my lens buying days are done...

Sometimes I think 180mm is too long for me, and then I see nice images like this and just need to force myself to use it more! Great tracks shot Leighton!

Speaking of fog, took a few photos near home, about fourty miles up into Western Pennsylvania.
Did no processing on these, kinda liked the muted colors. D200, 50mm 1.8 AI.

















You've all seen folks in SUV's waiting to pickup children after school..this is the Amish version of that!

Now we all know that last line is just not going to hold up for long! It is nice to think that but then something comes along and the NMFAS kicks in.

Thanks Philip, The 180 was too long before, but now I can see myself using it a lot more, incredibly sharp.

Congrats on the 85 Curtis, that's one that's on my list.

Monty, I actually love those 16mm shots, can you believe that!

I was planning on apologizing to you in the post, but I forgot
You may own a 16mm yet....
