Philippe, lovely car shots with the 28/2.8. Seeing the wonderful work with this lens through the hands of you and others kindles a desire to one day pick one up.


I've been thinking this, too, for quite a while, seeing the excellent work that Phillippe always does with this lens. And I remember particularly Rinie's Fiat shots, too, with this lens - extremely sharp!

(Hard to believe it was 275 pages ago!)

So ... I finally broke down and bought one. (From Reagan - another lens staying within the thread.) Should arrive tomorrow, I think - can't wait!

Thanks Monty, I was going to convert it to black and white until I saw all the great conversions posted and decided it couldn't compete!

You won't regret it, it's a fantastic lens in every respect except for corner sharpness at long distances, for which it only gets decent by f/8, and good by f/11 or f/16. Diffraction sets in at f/22.

Nice work with the long MF Nikons, Choung and Jose. Monty, Leighton, your black and white shots are impressive.
Now for something a little different, an abstract!

http://user.md.net/~wemullan/ABS.jpg

Now then, to make an abstract such as this, some unique technique is required.
First, you must be out on a hiking trail, with shots of autumn in mind.
Along the trail, you must decide that the lens you've mounted is not the focal length
you desire. You must find a good place to sit, remove that lens, and from your camera
bag select a lens, in this case, my 50mm 1.8. After the lens is mounted,

Funny and at the same time a beautiful "abstract" image!

I see a couple of you are now rocking the new 600's! Very cool. Actually mounted some MF glass for the first time in over a month. We FINALLY got a break in the heat and of course it brought a little weather with it. Both shots are panoramas, done with the 105 1.8.




16 Shot Pano






Brennon and Jordan 4 Shot Pano

Ed,

Thanks for restoring my sanity - the green monster was starting to get to me looking at Monty and Leighton's pics. These are excellent.

Ray, these are great. Your exposures on white bitds in bright light are spot on - not easy. If you did go to a FX camera you'd just have to crop away the extra 8 megapixels to get the saem result or move to the 400mm that Jose uses so well.

Very nice series Georg - it's not easy to make mundane subjects interesting.

Thanks for the kind words, Sammy and Peter.

Matt, those shots of your wife and son with the 35 1.4 are terrific. I'm also glad you
didn't convert any of them to B&W.

Tony, some panos! I love doing panos, don't think I'll ever do a sixteen shot one, however. The second one is beautiful.

Time for a bedtime snack and some sleepy time.

One more thing before bedtime.

I forgot I wanted to thank Dylan for his kind words. The D200 and it's CCD sensor seem to love what the coated AI and AIS lenses to with color. I would love to get a nice
105 2.5 AIs, but the budget will not allow quite yet.

Now it IS bedtime.
