Jimmy, welcome! I'm still debating (with myself) about getting the 28mm f/2.8 AIS. I have a nice old 28mm f/3.5 HC AI'd that I like, but I see so many great photos from the AIS version posted here.

Peter, nice to have you back. I hope you feel better soon - back pain can be really debilitating, I know from experience. I look forward to seeing some pictures from your trip.

Eric J.

Jimmy, welcome to the best thread on the internet, no brag, just fact!

Sounds like you have NMFAS about as bad as anyone else. Love your first contribution. From what I've seen posted by you and others with the 28mm f2.8 it's a lens that will have to make it in to my bag.

Agentbird and Don, love your exceptional work with the PC-E's!

Ed, I really like the first and the last shot of your series! Beautiful colors and great framing.

Chuong, I'm pretty sure you will have a lot of fun with Nikki!

Mark, that's another very nice series from Colmar. I like especially the "Fachwerkhäuser".

Dean, I'm a sucker for classic-boat-shots - thanks for sharing the well-shaped fisherboats.

Rolf, I hope you enjoy the 2/135 - can't wait to see your work with it. "Gut Licht!"

Jimmy - welcome!

Peter, welcome back!
My idea with an off-center Microprism-screen was just another weird idea - right now I think I will leave my D7000's screen as it is. Maybe I'll try to get a F3 with a H-type-screen (microprisms over the whole screen). If this really works for me I could try to mount one of these screens into the D700.
I hope you recover fast from the Safari's exertions, Georg.

You better start typing Matt, adding 40000 posts is going to be a tough job!

Happy 2000th page everyone! Thank you curtis for starting this snowball rolling down the hill. It just continues to pick up momentum, which is great.

Ed: Liking your images from SW PA. Just need a few trains in them.

Chuong: Glad Nikki arrived safe and sound. Quite a reception!

Mark: Like your Colmar series. The archway shot is very nice.

Agentbird: Good to see you back. The clarity you get with the 45 PC-E is amazing. Nice work!

Dean: I like your original posting. I am going to have to go back and see what my first was. Well, maybe I had better not. Probably was not very good!

Don: Great image with the 85 PC-E. Lovely composition and out of focus rendering.

Leighton: The 180 works well on the D600. Similiar to the 50-135 at the long end that you handle so well on the D7000.

Peter: Welcome back. Thank you for the comments on the Nikki images. It was a blast working with her. I miss her already! She is in Chuong's capable hands now.

Hi Jimmy, Welcome to the group! You definability have it, MFNAS!!!! THe first two MF lenses I bought were the same as your first two. THe 28mm f2.8 ai-s and the 180mm. BOth are GREAT lenses. THe 28 is crazy sharp when taking pictures "up close" I don't know whether to blame you all here We just blame Curtis, he has broad shoulders and can take the kidding! Monty

Thank you, Monty. I think this is a great place to hang out; and it looks like you do spend a lot of time here.

You're right about the 28mmf2.8ais for close-up shots. They are really sharp.

This weekend I'm going to try out the 180mm. There's a wedding to take it to and another event in church. So I think I'll use it and see if I really need the 200mm.

I've been meaning to comment on this picture of yours below, since I saw it some days ago. You see those bin and kitchen pans on the floor? I think I know what they are up to.

I think your "guys in assembly" are up to their ears in rocket science.

I don't know why, but for some strange reason the particular image Monty posted some days ago just did not appear in my "quoted" post.

Lovely shot Eric, wonderful pose. I just think however she would be better off reading "Why good people are divided by cat people and dog people."

JimmyChoo - Welcome and...good luck finding remedies.


Thank you, Chuong.
I know what you mean by "remedies". There's no cure for MNFAS but there are remedies. These remedies are in each and every MF lens that you acquire successfully.

Eric, thanks.
Well, you will have to stop debating with yourself over the 28mmf2.8ais. There is no cure for this, but there is a remedy.

Talking of HC lenses, I have an old 50mmf2 HC AI'd which I got with my first Nikon F2, both of which I have kept until now. This old 50mm lens is also brilliantly sharp. Here's a shot taken with this 50mmf2HC AI'd:

You're right, this is the best. And you guys don't brag; it's a fact. You're not arrogant or condescending, unlike what I've seen elsewhere.

BTW, that first post of mine was an image shot with the 105mm f2.5 AI'd. Let me add fire with a shot of my chilly to your NMFAS for the 28mmf2.8AIS:

Yes Chuong, you said it.
I think the D800 sensor resolves better than 35mm film. I remember trying to get the most resolution and sharpness by using Panatomic-X and developing it in Microdol-X; and it still was not as good as now. Those were the days!

Georg, thanks for the welcome.
