Hey everyone - life has been far too busy lately, but I've had some time to lurk and enjoy the ongoing great photographs for the last several months. I finally had a few moments to sit down and go through some pics. Here are a few from the recent Canadian Thanksgiving weekend at our new farm.

AdoramaPix and MPIX also do photo books. I used Adorama to do a photo book to give my kids, and my grandkids a copy of photos of Grandpa and them doing things. Came out pretty nice, and you can sign up for their sales promotions. Print up a few, and show it around, bet you'll be surprised.



Thank you both for the suggestions....I've got a ton of work ahead of me it seems.

I made a casual bokeh comparison (at f/2) between the 85mm f/1.4 ais and "Nikki's daughter" (85mm f/1.8 K ai'd) . No "scientific test" here.
The subject was an epiphyte (Dendrobium sp) on an old tree here at my university campus.

I am wondering if you guys can guess which is the mighty 85/1.4 ais and which is the old 85/1.8K.

Sample I:


Bokeh at f/2 - Guess which is the lens (85mm/1.4 ais or 85mm/1.8K aid)? by labecoaves, on Flickr



Sample II:


Bokeh at f/2 - Guess which is the lens (85mm/1.4 ais or 85mm/1.8K aid)? by labecoaves, on Flickr


Both lenses are similarly very sharp and a joy to use, but bokeh is slightly distinct.

Tonight I will tell you guys which is which

Congrats Tony and Matt for your new 180/2.8 and 35/1.4.

Brad, nice and fun perspective with the 16mm.
Is it the f/3.5 or f/2.8 version?


Thanks, it's the 3.5.

Bmwrider, nice set with 16/3.5;
I liked the most the bonfire shots, they look like almost rectilinear. Did you use a DX body?


Yes, I am (still) shooting with a D7k. I keep flip flopping on whether or not to get a D600.

Mihai, nice sunsets/sunrises, liked the most the second one.
Is it a plane in the first shot?

Jose,

Nice images. My guess is that the top picture comes from 1.8K. I noticed the bokeh has the oval shape like the 50mm f1.2 in the previous images you posted.

Three votes for the bottom shot being the f/1.4. The background would be challenging for any fast lens and both of these lenses handled it quite well. I see a touch more smoothness in the second shot but you could blow us all away as say that is the K lens. What fun!

Sweet set Mihai. Your work with the 55 f/1.2 is impeccable. What a surprise this lens has been for me. And I want everyone to be aware that while the S-C AI'd is a fine lens, the coatings first applied to that lens were used for ALL subsequent versions, so you needn't hold out for the S-C which is hard to find with the AI conversion kit, but can go for an AI'd K or a native AI version and get a fine lens. This is definitely a lens worth considering, especially so if you don't already own the 50 f/1.2 AI-s which typically costs about a hundred dollars more. Food for thought...

A few more photos from Fleet Day taken with the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF... wide open, hand held.



This was shot at minimum focusing distance and required me to lean back to get focus.



They were all watching the planes doing their acrobat routines.

Dear All,

It's been a rainy few days here, but I did manage to catch a short break in the weather to get these nice sunset shots:

One with the 28mm series E and one with the 105mm which (to state the obvious) is incredible.

Kind regards,
Mark.





The colour through the rain clouds was incredible - and the 105 captures it so well.







Show your Series E lens some love.

Alan - I love the pano, very well done.

Brad - Perfect use of the 16mm, great shot!

Dan - Love the set, specially the bon fire!

Jose - What a beautiful plant, and shot!

Mihai - I really like the landscape's with the 55.

Curtis - Good use of the 300mm. Easier when your subjects attention is elsewhere.

Mark - The last one is very nice.
