Monty and Leighton, I love the fall day and the birds. Monty - I lived for a year in WI and loved it, and my brother was there for many years @UWMadison. It is a lovely state.
Couple issues to bring up, now. Not about the photographs, but the lenses.
1. The 105/1.8 I just got seems to me to be sharper than I would have expected. Second photo is crop of first, unsharpened at 1.8. Seems pretty good wide open and I almost got it in focus. I like this lens VERY much. On soccer fields shooting sports all weekend, but will mess with it more soon as I can.
2. Second 2 photos are of the 55 1.2 SC AI'd I just picked up from KEH (rated Ex, no caps) that I will be returning. Focus is a bit stiff and it is NOT a Nikon AI conversion. They could not tell me that in advance, so I took a chance knowing their return policy is fair, but am sending it back likely on Tuesday. Too bad, it is otherwise a very pretty lens. BTW, if someone wants it you are welcome to it at my cost (399 plus shipping/ins to you). But I won't be keeping it and I assume noone else would, either.
