Beautiful images Nancy, the first one is fantastic, that lens is much underrated.


Thanks, Leighton. It had its time in the internet-forum sun around the time the D200 was released. I hadn't heard of it and bought one. So glad I did! Great sharpness, color, and contrast, plus a bit of character. It's terrific with the close-up lenses too.

Nancy - I really love the look of your pics - very impressed with the D200. I've looked around at other images too - I'm wondering if it's because it's a CCD sensor (before Nikon switched to the Sony cmos). I'm so impressed I bought one last week (should arrive today).

And I agree with you about the 75 - 150mm - that lens is so overlooked and it's a real gem (and ridiculously cheap).

Ben, thanks, and good luck with your new D200. Maybe it's my PP, maybe it's the sensor. I also love the old D40, another CCD sensor. My PP is usually just a bit more contrast where needed, btw, like I'd do in a darkroom - nothing special. The newest body I use is the D90, and I like what I get from that too. But I know the D200 best after almost 7 years.

I love that old 75-150 - it's the travel-size 80-200. Fabulous bit of glass, and I love to show it to people and explain how "cheap" and "plastic" it was for its time. (Then I show them a kit lens vs the 105/2.5.)

How much of the fun of shooting with the great old glass is knowing how good the results will be? My 16-85 has excellent sharpness, color, and contrast, but... you know? I take an old AI/AIS out for a spin and bam! bam! bam! Great stuff.

A couple of pictures with the AIS 100-300 f5.6 on my D700. I really enjoy the 100-300 on the bright summer days, when I can shoot at ISO 400 and get steady enough for good results. I saw the marmot up in the Olympic mountains - no doubt searching for threats. Maybe that long skinny zoom lens scared him...the other shot was a Canadian sailing vessel I saw from a ferry boat, again, the long reach
of the 100-300 was great. Had to make sure I was out of the wind with no "VR"

One more from the D700 and 100-300f5.6 AIS combination. Close focus with this lens is OK with a slightly macro setting at 100mm, it will focus down to a couple of feet. Ah, those summer days are gone.

I put my Nikkor 300 f4.5 AIS on the D3100 and sat by a local pond. A few geese were around, looking for some food, and these are a couple of grab shots. Its quite a long lens on a D3100, and the combo has a bit of a strange feel, like holding a baseball bat with a camera attached along for the ride. The enduring quality of the Nikon F mount design makes even this combination possible. A little bracketing in manual mode gets you a good enough exposure.

One more with the 300 f4.5AIS on the D3100. I sharpened this a little after the crop from a large .jpeg off the 14.7MP sensor of the D3100. It was just a small dragon fly on an evergreen branch, and I held my breath and shot a few pictures. ISO 200, 1/640 sec.

Welcome, Abram, and wow on that horse shot!!! The other two shots however, are not within the spirit and intention of this thread, since they're shot with your Canon camera.

Film isn't dead yet, for sure
