...Curtis - and other 55/1.2-users: what hood sits on your 55?


I missed this Georg. I have the HS-7 which reverses over the lens. It is a very neat package, though not quite as quickly implemented at the rubber hood.







It works on the NOCT as well...

People tell me its in my job description...

There was a person posting on FM some years ago with the username "Luminosity" who was such a fan of the 180 that any time it was under discussion Josh would show up and wax eloquently about the lens. I quickly became a fan myself and have pretty consistently recommended the lens as one of the best values for money in the Nikon MF firmament. My guess Tony, is that you will be equally impressed once you mount the lens. It is one of five lenses I'm taking with me to Florida tomorrow and as suggested by Leighton I believe, I'll have the TC-201 with me as well. There has not been a single application with this lens that has not impressed... bare, with extension tubes and teleconverters. Give the lens an opportunity in all those ways and my guess is it will become a favorite for you as well.

Here's a shot I've posted before taken wide open with the 180 f/2.8 AI-s with a 36mm extension tube attached... hand held, of course.

Many more great images this past day.

Georg, nice garden shots and beautiful military images. The processing on these is first rate.

Kevin, nice work with the 50mm series E.

Philippe, love the dog image.

Leighton, the 105 2.5 flower image is very nice. Selling the D7000! The ranks od DX users begin to thin here on this forum.

Mihai, the table arrangement is very nice.

Monty, really like the "bikes in the mist". Great background.

Curtis, nice ladybug.

Here are a few from Columbus Day weekend. All taken with the 105 2.5.

Thanks a bunch, Curtis!
I will give a rubber hood a try, if I don't like it on the 55/1.2 it might find some use on one of the many other 50mm-Nikkors :-)
I've ordered a HS-7 from a seller in Hongkong - the german prices are completely silly (a new HS-7 was advertised for 125 Euros plus shipping). Btw, based on the amazing work displayed at this thread I've ordered a PK-11A too (prices for new ones go up to over 90 Euros). It's a crazy world.
The ladybug-picture is fantastic - I should take the time to discover all the earlier posts at this thread.
Have a nice time in Florida, Georg.

PS: 100% no Noct for me - I'm rather lusting for a 85 PC

I bought my HS-7 from Hong Kong as well... not too bad a price... under $30. But I'm with you regarding extension tubes. The PK-13 was cheap but the PK-11, PK-12 and PN-11 were quite pricey. I probably should have been content with the set of Vivitar tubes I had that were certainly serviceable but I was smitten with the Nikon name. No doubt the Nikon tubes are better built. But massaging one's kit in all the ways that can happen really just keeps on going...

Here is a Brenizer method pano of my wife's graduation picture back in May. I don't recall how many shots I stitched together with a 180/2.8.

When it rains Brenizer shots, it pours! Nice work Alan.

Curtis love the ladybug shot, can't wait for the 180 to get here!

Just noticed over at Adorama in the Refurbished by Nikon supply a bunch of AI-s lenses...

http://www.adorama.com/NK1535R.html

For anyone who was waiting for that extra nice 15/3.5 AI-s! Couple other slightly less exotic focal lengths, 24, 28 and 50 for sure. No 1.2's.

Seeing as I just caved and bought something I have to hurry and pass along the itch to someone else!

I started to type all of this out, and found out you had done it for me and I could just repost! And add compliments to your photos! Great job.

I worked in the studio tonight, but no MF lenses tonight so nothing to post. I'm working sports tomorrow so I likely won't have any MF photos at least until late.

My 35MMF1.4 will arrive tomorrow while I am gone working so you may get something crummy inside with it. Maybe a self portrait or maybe something of my kiddo.


Great stuff everyone, and I see the power of Gab is running as rampant as MFNAS is!

Dumb question I'm sure... on Adorama's used lenses list they have a designator 'Ov' or 'OV' on many lenses. What does that indicate?
