I did get out for an hour today with the 180mm 2.8 attached. The lens has a bit of weight but it balances well on my D7000. It is very sharp and has very good contrast and color.



Great set with the 180! I've been neglecting mine and need to get it out and shoot with it!

What Scott said..plus liking the last two panos!

Here are a few of the Western Maryland Scenic RR, a steam powered tourist line that runs uphill from Cumberland, MD, 15.6 miles to Frostburg MD. I managed last Friday to squeeze in enough time to go Frostburg, about 25 minutes from my home to catch the train pulling into the depot.

I really like the color from the D200 and these two MF lenses!


Ed, these are terrific. I really like the first two. Train images always welcome!

Ray, wonderful images in the series. The butterfly, detail, and colors are wonderful.

Ray and Matt are really nailing these flower shots. The 85 and 180 are classics for good reason and the two of you make them shine. Wonderful work with and without tubes.

Mihai, that first portrait is outstanding. Wonderful low light work. Like Georg I'm a fan especially of your BW conversions. Really fine!

THis months "assignment" for our photography club is "Doors" That might explain the "loading dock" picture posted earlier and these two lame attempts.

I was hoping to get to a Doors concert, but I think I'm a little are for that. Maybe a picture of one of my albums....

Ray, fantastic work with your 180! I like especially the second last image - beautiful colors, a creamy bokeh and perfect sharpness.
I cant help it - are US-american butterflies really that large? For the ones over here I have to use a Micro-Nikkor...

Monty, I love pictures with doors... and doors as a symbol... The first one in B&W is my preferred!

Curtis, thanks for your comments! We shall thank God and Nikon for the good technology we have today... If I remember right that portrait is done at 12800 ISO... I remember that in my beginning years into photography it was a good reason to celebrate when you were able to purchase a 400 ASA film... 99% from the market was 100 ASA.... the higher speed film was sold mostly on the black market...

Matt, outstanding flowers with 85/1.4... I could not believe to see you in the flower market

Ray, great captures on butterflies... you are mastering that lens... but you also prove to have that great patience necessary to get such as images.

Georg, thanks for your nice comment! Your English is better than mine! No reason to apologize!

Dylan, Happy Thanksgiving! Wish to taste your bird!

Ed, I am very humble when I see the quality of the images you get from that D200. I remember myself to be very critical about D300... and I know that I was not right!

Matt, that's a beautiful series! The dainty rose is a classic. Got side-tracked while searching for pink subjects?
And thanks for mistaking Philippe's outstanding work for mine - I take this as a compliment.

Here's a re-worked (read: converted to B&W and killed all gray tones in between) picture of a well-secured barn door:

I could be wrong, but if my NMFAS-detector is properly calibrated I've discovered that Leighton seems to have some interest in spending money on 28/2
Here are two close-ups I took today in the garden:

yew - 28/2 Ai wide-open and at minimum focusing distance, cropped a wee bit


old apple tree - 28/2 Ai wide-open, no cropping, processed straight without adding "structures" or "clarity"

While showing less drama than the 35/1.4 (or the 24/2) the 28/2's bokeh isn't completely creamy.
A busy background with many small highlights will provoke the kind of bokeh shown above.
I love my 28/2's

Well if he does, I have one for sale and we could keep it in the MFN thread family.

Georg, excellent photo of the yew berries. They look much nicer in your photo that they do when they are crushed under my feet. This time of year, every morning when I go out to get the newspaper at the end of the driveway there are a bunch of mashed berries underfoot that have dropped off our tree...

Thank you Reagan,Matt,Scott,Curtis and Georg. Some of are butterflies are quite large. In this case I would say average. The 180 allowed me to fill the frame with very little cropping.
