(all with Nikki)

Beautiful felines Laura!

Great use of the 85PCE, georg!

Scrubbing off all the mud away with a stiff-bristled brush, was struck by the amazing redness underneath. Brought it to the kitchen window and grabbed the camera

Few from Siem Reap, Cambodia. Over here for a week with my wife and my brother who has joined us from London. The temple ruins are incredible ... pretty different to my usual temples back home in HK

1st & 3rd with the 20mm f/2.8 Ai-S (which will get a nice work out over here !) and the 2nd with the 180 f/2.8 Ai-S.

Great shots all! I really want more MF lenses, but am currently hamstrung in cash. Anyone know of someone looking for a decent Sigma 70-300mm AF lens? Someone with a seller membership here available to host a lens for me?

Grey, wet & foggy here...

Beautiful shot Mike!

How long was the exposure?


not too slow, 1/20th

Mike, wonderfully moody shot. Which lens was it with, it's stayed very crisp through the frame?

45mm PC-E, some tilt to increase DOF

There is machinery & stuff on the other side so the fog was perfect to hide it. Thanks for the nice comments everyone.

2 degrees of tilt on this one (I think this is halfway proper use of the lens :-)


I like these, fellow Tilt Shifter

Ok, so I've been looking for a 55/1.2. There are a couple on ebay, but they all look different.

There is one at Igor's which says it's an AI converted lens, and another one at Cameta (more$$) which is a genuine AI, but the focusing ring looks totally different (it looks like the 50/1.2, without the big fluted focusing ring).

Which model/style of 55/1.2 should I be trying to find?

Thanks everyone!

Monty, I see that Nikki has safely arrived and that Rocky is checking out that cat smell, I kept the boxes out of reach of my cats, however, in my haste to get to the post office, I have discovered the papers that are supposed to be in the box as well, so expect an envelope with those to make an appearance.

Leighton, you've got the blog posts in your email now, and for those that are curious as to what was fixed, here's the list.

replace filter ring
replace focusing helicoid
replace other small parts
lubricate helicoid key
repair focusing mechanism
clean aperture operation
clean lens elements
check optical alignment
general check, adjust and clean

I still haven't looked at the shot of the damage

I haven't been following the thread to closely lately. Apparently I've missed something important.
What happened to it?
Who paid for the repair?

Ok, so I finally looked. There's also a brand new NC filter in the box, but I didn't put it on at all.

Monty, as you see in the above photos, there was an accident. I dropped my D700 with Nikki attached, while I was leaving a store. Point of impact was the filter ring. I then went home, took those shots, and sent both off to APS for repairs, and paid for them since I was the person that caused the damage. Notice that the serial number has been changed, to whatever lens that gave up its parts for Nikki.

Couple with the 50 f2 HC, first to check out bokeh while making coffee. The second is an interesting pumpkin, seemingly covered with peanuts.

Samy looks like that lens is a real winner. Great shots!

The birds swooped down to the grass and trees and seem to be collecting twigs and leaves for warm nests in the winter. I hauled up the 500 f4P, took a few shots. Then I got out the TC-301 to get a bit closer to the birds, but then they were suddenly all gone. At least this time I finally got a reasonable shot of the very skittish bluejay. The other two I believe are robins. All taken at F5 or F5.6, in the hurry I didn't realize the non-CPU settings were still set for the 50mm f2 HC.

Oboy shots from Cambodia, a nature reserve in France, the Smokies, night B&Ws from Germany and Jose's BIF shots, and much more. Have to put aside time to go through the last few pages in detail.
