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.

These shots are great!

Actually, the train to Staunton from Delray Beach goes through WASHINGTON and takes a day and a half... I checked when doing the planning. I'm afraid we'll have to wait until next year when Sue hopes to go to New York to visit her family still living there. That might be a longer trip that would afford time for us to head south for a few days and take in a Virginia summer. I told Sue that you'd be busy farmers and she said she'd love work with Barbara in the field. I said I'd be watching from the front porch...

She's doing well Leighton and I couldn't be happier...

And yes, Monty, there will be some family portraits making their way to the board once I get home and do some processing. Nice to see the grip arrived. You're all set now. Glad you're enjoying the camera. It seems a winner if I'm to judge from what you, Leighton and Tony are posting. Have fun!

Sue and I arrived without incidence early on Thursday to the heat my friends from Florida had warned me about... I'm told the warm weather is over but mid-80's with high humidity still feels oppressive after mid-60's and essentially no humidity. But I grew up in Minnesota where temperatures in July and August were in the nineties and humidity was not far behind. I know I can handle six days. I won't be posting any photos but I'll try to do a bit of catching up. What I've seen is rather breathtaking. Keep up the good work folks. Hopefully when

Maybe if Reagan drove up here and got me in his SS we could do the round trip in 20 hours!

Thanks Georg, Samy, Peter, Leighton.

Leighton that train track shot is outstanding - the composition, the light, the PP, everything. Which 28 is that?

(my first one is the 35mm f1.4 ais)

Leighton, very moody picture of the tracks - I like it a lot! Is the cool baggage-trolley still in use?

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!

Eric, thanks and congrats on the new lens. Can't wait to see your shots!

More autumn colors, and the elusive green heron.

With the 105 2.5 AI.

Philippe, the beetle-photograph is really awesome! The framing is absolutely perfect - fantastic work! Love the lettering above the license plate :-)

Samy, beautiful autumn-colors! The mirroring works great here.

Some more with the 105 2.5 AI. The first is a non-skittish great blue heron (at least if one doesn't get any closer). I took a bunch of pictures and at most it walked back and forth at the edge of the water scouting for fish.

The last is an effect I am still working on - 'tree bokeh'.

The early morning light was very appealing yesterday. Another with the 28-50mm f3.5.

A note on this lens. Although I think it has nice color and contrast output, I'm not crazy about the working distance. It doesn't lock focus anywhere near as close as my 24mm f2.8, and I would assume the 28mm f2.8, both of which has the CRC attribute. It does have a gimmicky micro setting, but that's only good in a short range.

Phillip said "I'm playing the "28 f/2.8 + 50 f/1.2 vs 35 f/1.4" game" to Matt and I think I'm doing the same thing,

Wonderful image, nice and sharp, and I really like the colors!

Curtis, Better Watch out I have a rock that weighs the same as a 85 1.4
By the way This is Fall for us it's only in the mid eighties with high humidity
Love the train tracks Leighton. Is that an Amtrack station?

Just a couple more for now so I don't hog the thread. The first is a standoff between the 105 2.5 AI and a deer caught in the light. I convinced the lens eventually to back off and let the deer go on its merry way in the forest.

The second one is what happens when one uses a drying leaf as a solar filter

Ben - I had a hunch that was the 35mm, very nice indeed. Thanks for the comment, it was the 28-50mm f3.5. This lens was made at the same time as the 50-135mm f3.5.

Georg - Thank you very much, yes, the trolley is still in use.

Philippe - Thanks, and I love your Beetle shots. I learned to drive in a 1967 Beetle, what fun cars to drive!

Samy - Nice colors and reflection, good capture of the deer. Don't worry about hogging the thread, I do it ALL the time!

Jon - Thanks a lot, when you have good light, it's hard to take a bad image.

Reagan - Thank you, yes, it's an Amtrak station, but it's not used very much. Have fun with Curtis and Ray.

Curtis, glad to here you and Sue arrived safely.

Mark, the before looks good, the after looks great. I'd be curious for a recipe.

Rolf, the 135/2 is a jewel and I like what you do with it.

Tony, your panos are second to none; the 105/1.8 has been pure gold in your hands.

Leighton, lovely contrast in the tracks.

Samy, lots of lovely fall shots, the leaves hanging in front of the bokeh are sweet.

Monty, glad to see your grip arrived. I got sensor envy last night watching a sunset with extreme dynamic range while using my D700... I won't be switching anytime soon though, because something is coming tomorrow that zapped away my fun money for awhile. We'll be playing the lens guessing game soon.

Oh I can't wait, I love these games.
