Great shot, Leighton.

I am playing with the 300mm f4.5 with the TC-200. It added a bit more CA but not that bad stepping down a little.

Handheld under nature light. It's the entire frame so no crop here.

Thanks Chuong. Your "playing" looks good.

Am I mistaken, or don't you have Nikki at the moment?

"raboof"

you've got me curious. I recently picked up a Nikon H 300 f4.5 & it's on its way back from John White at the moment. You mention using a 2.0 tele converter on this lens. Which TC is it, please?
many thanks
Doug

Far from a good image or "beautiful" bug, this is just to show the performance of the old 400mm f/5.6 K wide open/100% crop - the smaller image at top-right is the original photo.

Yes Leighton. I am about to ship it out to Laura. I know I owe you an email but I still need s bit more time to process a few more.

Chuong, nice image with 300/4.5 + TC200.
I see no CA; did you removed CA using PP?

Doug, this one. http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/tc200.htm
I also own the H version but my brother is using it now. I think it should be fine with this TC.

No, I only darkened it a bit because the exposure seemed overexposed on some petals. That's it.
I should mention CA is detected at 100% crop. If not, you can hardly see it.

Wide open here and it's also a full frame.

No problem, I just wanted to make sure she wasn't lost and trying to find her way home.

A B&W image of a very old train trestle, again with the 28-50mm.

Very nice, Leighton, the textures scream for B&W.

Amazing performance of this "oldie". Thanks for sharing, Jose!

......Fortunately, my 25-50 covers all of these focal lengths, but it isn't quite as bitingly sharp as any of the primes, although it still did just fine on a 20x30 print from my D90.


Alan, fantastic shot!

Hello. I'm kind of new here, coming from Canon and just got a D600, I was directed to this thread and now I am fascinated by these gorgeous images. Particularly the ones with the 105 f2.5, incredible beautiful portraits with butter bokeh and shallow dof ,
so I went to keh.com and ebay and found a bazillion different models of 105mm , ai aid non ai , I'd like to ask you, which is the "right" 105 f2.5 to look for?
And what is a average price to pay for such a lens?
Thank you for your help


Get an AI or AI-S. Either will work well for you. Keh is a great place and I know Monty has them on speed dial. I bought a lens from them 3 weeks ago.. However! For a 105 they are too high. Plain and simple. I have seen them sell for as little as $115 on ebay with nice glass. Mine is an AI, has perfect glass and I think I got it for $125.
