This reveals both lens performance and yours good hands.

Strange the 6T close up filter does not worked.
According this resource :

http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf2/macro/index3a.htm

the 6T has ...Two elements; 2.9 Diopters; 62mm thread mount';This lens is intended for use with telephotos (hence the "T" at the end of the name) but is reputedly excellent with all lenses that it'll fit

Anyway it is good to know.


Jose, I will try a simple comparison between tubes and the No.6T on the 105/1.8 tomorrow.
I'm pretty sure the tubed 105/1.8 will deliver a good bit more contrast. The No.6T might deliver a more dreamy image.
I've mated several high-quality close-up-lenses with fast primes and the results were mostly quite sharp, but with a very low overall contrast.
Here are links to already posted examples:

George, I like the feel of the 105 a little better right now( I literally opened the 85MM about 1.5 hours ago) but there is something about the 85MM focal length that I have always liked. I took a few photos with the 85MM of my son in the back yard when I opened it, then took the photos of the lens line up. I'm impressed with just how sharp the 85MM is at F1.4 and the 105MM F1.8 is sharp, but just ever so slightly not as sharp as the 85 is wide open. I'm sure once I

Thanks for sharing your initial impressions and these wonderful portraits!

I shot all of these 3-4 weeks ago, but just now got to imaging them. All of these are the Nikkor 105mm f2.5 ais at f2.5. The thing I find interesting is the variety of bokeh.



James, fantastic set and very inspiring bokeh-play!
The highlights on shot #2 are kinda busy, but I really like the composition of it.

Here's one more at ISO 50, and I promise to stop....maybe. Again with the 50-135 wide open.


That is some good looking stuff! Do they eat it out there or just use it for decorations like most do here?




Curtis that is an impressive set you have posted. You surely are a collector! I hope some day to have a complete set of the fast glass. Some day I'll take on an intern to teach and mold and I can leave all of my glass to him when it's my turn to be called home.

I had the weird idea to shoot some basketball with the 105/1.8 today, but the only picture I didn't delete immediately was a snap of the local coach during a time-out:

Thanks Ray! Here's another jpeg straight from the camera at 2500 ISO.


Leighton, that is very clean for 2500 ISO! How do you find the ISO of the D600 vs the D7000?

Thanks folks, for the kind words on the fog and color shots. Here are some from a visit up in that same
area, but with a little sunshine. I say a little, the clouds and sun were playing peekaboo.
I do prefer the 50 1.8 for landscape, better at infinity, I think.

Thanks, Matt and Alan. It's supposed to be very pretty here Friday. I hope to get back up there, the color should be at it's peak. Lots of trains up there, also, CSX Sand Patch Grade!
Time for some sleep. I'll bet I'll miss ten pages!

Dear All,

Firstly thanks to everyone for your kind words about the first set of photos from Colmar. The ones with the 105mm f2.5 were very easy, leave lens wide open, point at something vaguely interesting, focus and push shutter. Let this amazing lens make some stunning bokeh and out of focus areas and enjoy the result.
My wife knew I has snuck this new lens in the house just by looking at the results on my computer commenting that they seemed really sharp and with outstanding colours (I thought I'd done a great job getting it in without her noticing).

These ones are with the 28mm series E and although it's a great little lens it's not the 105 by any stretch of the imagination. Still the results are nice and I hope that you enjoy them.

A little more on Colmar. As mentioned the main attraction of the town is the old historical centre and the well preserved "Little Venice". Although Colmar did see some action in WWII thankfully it avoided the massive damage that destroyed many other historical towns which were then rebuilt in that lovely fashion of 1950's and 1960's concrete. The war did leave some impact though, the American army build in 3 days a bridge to cross the river Lauch (translated as Leek in English - the name comes as it was used by farmers to bring Leeks to market). This "Temporary bridge" is still in use today for modern traffic - ah, back when things were made to last.

The old houses are all different colours and it is law that your house cannot be the same colour as your neighbour's house. Traditionally the colours represented your profession (White for Tanner, green for farmer, red for butcher etc), but in a part of Colmar there were only 2 colours. Red for Catholics and Blue for Protestants - those well renowned friends.

Built into the houses by the supporting beams were various symbols. The main ones were a cross to represent wealth and the diamond to represent fertility. If there was an eligible unmarried maiden in the house then your shutters would have a small love-heart cut out of them. When she got married you changed these to a diamond to pray that she would be fertile and have a large family (Sorry ladies, that's the extent of your career progression in those days. Babies and running the house and finances).

Of course you cannot go to France without the traditional stereotypical French breakfast of Croissant and coffee, although as I don't like coffee I settled for a hot chocolate instead. We found a great cafe run by an old woman who was there in the morning when we had breakfast and was there when we went past after a hearty dinner at 10pm. The pastries were to die for there so it would have been rude not to finish with a tarte citroen and chocolate eclair.

Sorry for the long winded explanation, I hope that you find the photos interesting.
