I recommend not getting one.

All wide open. Stopped down it's exceedingly sharp already by f/2, but wide open is where the fun is.


the street shots are great Philip - but people must be much more approachable in Toronto than Sydney - you must have been standing very close to the woman with the coffee cup - and as the guy (yawning?) is looking right at you he must have been OK with having his pic taken. I never feel comfortable getting up so close to people with a cam like the D800E.

Thanks ben! People in Toronto generally are fairly approachable, and in the case of the older man (he is a local character with mental illness, often can be found in my neighbourhood), he actually came up and asked me to take his picture! The coffee cup woman I took while we were both crossing the street, and just lucked into getting a shot in focus, as I was shooting from the hip.

I find it much easier to get candids with the 105 or 180mm lenses though, as I too am usually too shy to take people's pictures up close without some indication that they know I'm going to do so already. That's why you'll tend to see my friends in pictures on here rather than strangers most of the time.

Ben, the best street-photographer I've ever seen is one of your fellow countrymen : OneAnt is a pretty amazing guy who posts on the FM Zeiss thread from time to time.
Look at this : http://www.oneant.com.au/

I believe they asked about a reason NOT to buy one! Great shots Philip!

Hi Tony,

Lovely shots, the crispness of the eyes on these cats is amazing! The only downside is that you have set a very high standard for the buyer of that lens to have to meet!

Fingers crossed you can keep the 105mm.

Kind regards,
Mark.

Thanks Mark! You are going to love that lens. Can't wait to see what you do with it! Plus, after seeing your shots, I wouldn't worry about that bar too much.

Thanks for the additional welcomes everyone!
Lots of super shots with various 50mms - pretty sure I had a 50 1.8 Ais once - but think I may opt for the 1.8G this time.. Lots of examples here of how good the earlier MF version is though!
One last shot from the 105 2.5 Ais - 800E now sent away again - I am really impressed with the bokeh from this lens though focussing is quite a challenge, particularly for models that don't keep still for long ;-)

For sure, Mihai! It's just more like a "hell oh well" when Fraulein Mueller's and Herr Schmidt's children are Trick-and treating :-)

Peter and Ben - thank you! Somehow the usual grainy B&W-conversion didn't worked on this so I'd choose a more airy looking processing :-)

Great shot of the Alpaca Lizzie. we have a neighbor that has 40 of these critters. It's quite something going in her barn!

A lot of great conversation and images since I last visited. Good to see Curtis again. You're children worry about you when you stay away so much.

Here's a shot of the snow that was in the mountains from yesterday. If you look closely at the highest peak just to the right of center, that's where I get my internet signal.


Leighton, love the powdered sugar on the mountains. Beautiful composition and very nice shades of blue in the sky. That's a beautiful part of the world you live in!

Lizzie, beautiful portrait of this cozy critter! I'm glad to read that the legendary 105/2.5 does so well on the demanding D800E.

MF-Nikkor #30 arrived safe and sound after traveling from Scotland to Krautland.
I've lucked out on a number of occasions before and I'm really happy that my patience was awarded with a lens in really great shape for a decent price.
I've tried the basic features in bad light and without presentable results, but really like it so far.
It will take many hours and countless user-errors until I'm really ready to use this optic properly.
Here's a picture taken during a short walk in dim light:

Very nice Georg. I like the seperation from the background. Nice colors and brightness.
