One from today. Just a little sample of 2500 ISO with the D600. Reagan asked if I'd used the 28-50mm f3.5 yet. This was with that zoom, I'm fairly happy with it.


I like this image, very nice!

The best platform for such as venture is a self hosted WordPress. This is free, is simple, offers thousands of free templates, is SEO oriented, uses little resources and has behind the scene a huge and constant growing enthusiast community. My warmly advice is to adopt a solution like this. Another plus is that can involve different contributors on a multilevel scheme, each level with its own rights and permissions.

www.nikonmanualfocus.com now belongs to yours truly! Should be interesting what can be done with it.
Any ideas appreciated!

That's great Ron. I can't think of anyone better to host this site!

Agreed. WP is very versatile.
I haven't read the previous pages, this question may have been answered. How will the hosting be funded?
THese are monthly costs. Probably a one or two year commitment paid up front

Thank you Eric, Chuong, Curtis Leighton, Philip and Georg for the feedback on the 85mm bokeh.
http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/2035#11030309
You all are smart and NMF expert guys: indeed the first was the K aiŽd version and the second the 1.4 ais.
Georg, I suppose that ellipsoid/lentil is due to coma, but I am not an expert.
Even though the 1.4 has the smoother bokeh, I was pleased by results of both lenses and I will keep "NikkiŽs daughter" for occasions when lens weight is a concern ( a trip to Europe, for example).

Just to add a detail of the flowers of that epiphyte, this time with the venerable 400mm f/5.6 K (ai'd) ED at MFD (~5m):

I sent Ron a PM regarding the building of the site.

I have long been a fan of the ProPhoto template for Wordpress.

It is pretty pricey at $199, but my license is good for 3 installs!

So I will donate it to the cause and can do a bulk of the setting up if needed. It is pretty much point and click though.

I've looked through todays offerings and I have to say WOW. Great job everyone.

Now two questions. My 35MM F1.4 arrived today. How can I tell if this is a Nikon AI kit? Also I've got to say at 1.4 this thing is SHARP and the close focus distance is pretty darn amazing.

One thing that has me worried. Serial number says it's from 1971-1973 and it ends in 666! This lens may be as old as I am! It's a 9 blade too, which is one thing Curtis was curious about.

I'll post some crappy indoor photos with it in a bit.

It does have the second small set of numbers behind the ring. So if that is the case that means I got it with the good Nikon conversion right? If so I feel even better about this purchase. This thing is very neat.

Post some pics! I'm playing the "28 f/2.8 + 50 f/1.2 vs 35 f/1.4" game in my head again these days.

Leighton, those ISO 2500 shots are very nice!

Monty, that high calorie snack is gonna cause me to eat just before bedtime, that
looks delicious.

Matt, great photo of your son. I think we will see some really nice work from you with that lens.

I used squarespace for my website. I'm not sure what we are looking for.
I created a free temperary site. The url is:

username:monty@montysphotos.com
password: ________

You are free to click around and configure it. You can make it look like what you want. I think we have 10 days for the trail.

go for it

Hi guys, long time lurker here watching your fine people's photo's. I don't participate much as I only have 1 AIs lens and there hasn't been much time to shoot..

Anyhow monty, maybe you guys should pass that password via pm.. this thread is just too public for someone not to wreck your site.. I think..

Happy shooting guys and gals

Congrats on another great lens Matt. You are building a wonderful kit! I don't like that serial number either.
