Oh Eric, having two daughters I can say this. You're going to have your hands full! I always wanted to sit on the front porch with a shotgun when they brought boys home for the first time,

I was thinking on the roof, with a bottle of Jack, a high-powered spot, and a shotgun. Or, maybe night-vision goggles.

Thanks Dylan, it's flare indeed. I should find a suitable sun-shade for my loved 55/1.2...


Most angular flare I've ever seen. But then, I've seen the 55mm 1.2 do some crazy things. Maybe a shade of some type helped this flare come about?

I've got one of those collapsible rubber ones myself. When collapsed, it actually squares off the end of the lens nicely. When extended, it looks like a plunger. On smaller lenses, like my 35mm 2.8 AIS, it sticks out more, and it being made of grippy rubber, it they tend to catch more in the bag. Also shown for reference is my 28mm f2 AIS with the HN-2 hood attached.









Of course Sandwich tries to get in on the act.

And apologies, these were taken quickly with the 35 1.4G.

Now you're talking! I'm just glad I survived those days, both of my girls are married now.

Although the audience might not be huge for photos of folks on skid row, there is a long photographic tradition of such documentary work. Your work is gritty and real Dylan. Now you need to find a venue for sharing it beyond what happens on this thread.

The rubber ones work fairly well, but I had to take mine off of the 28-50mm, it wasn't wide enough and caused vignetting.

Dylan, that's another fantastic set. You should really think about a possible book-project.

Ken Light is an inspiration. Thank you Curtis, you are nothing if not kind. I have a lot of thinking to do.

Yes, they do on my 28mm as well. The HN-2 is great, it feels like it is a part of the lens, it stays put and is wide enough. Might not do enough on the long end of your 28-50 though.

The topic of rubber lens hoods has come up before. I know they work well and that Nikon even sells them. But I simply can't put a rubber hood on one of these lenses. That means, of course, that for a couple of lenses I have the screw-in hood that is a pain in the butt... the 85 f/1.4 AI-s and 85 f/1.8H AI'd for example. A few lenses, including the 50 f/1.2 AI-s, 55 f/1.2 S-C AI-d and 85 f/2 AI-s have reversible hoods that took me awhile to understand, but I'm happy now. And of course, we have the wonderful lenses with sliding hoods... some of which work better than others.

Different strokes and all, but not for me...

Curtis, I typically agree, and I don't use them at all on my 35mm. My 55 is a different story. I do use it there on occasion. Mostly I go 'hoodless' on all my lenses mind you. At least on the 55mm, it just dissapears when not in use. I used to catch my fingers on it while trying to focus quickly, but not any more.

That ebay 180/2.8 is mine... or at least its paid for. Can't wait to get my hands on it! I was halfway hoping someone else would buy it today and remove temptation but when I got home from work and it was still there, along with more 'encouragement' from the thread here my will power faded.

Thanks to all for the nice comments on my winery images!

Leighton - thanks! I wasn't sure on how to process the drummer and finally opted for this style.

Dylan, thanks for your advice about the hood! Maybe I try the sun-shade from my 50/1.2 as first attempt.
The 55/1.2 already proved to be kinda unique in the flare-department: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/1873#10956764
Curtis - and other 55/1.2-users: what hood sits on your 55?

Eric, cool portrait of your daughter!

How about if you use center inch lens caps with them? I only have one rubber lens hood and I agree, not very nice putting them on these lenses. Kinda like a women dressed to the nines and then wearing sneakers!
