Just curious... where they found your picture?


Flickr! I got a flickrmail from the art director of a magazine, and things went from there.

Well if your talking about the thread starter and mentor then I have to totally agree with him about prices. Not that very long ago we were buying 16 3.5's for 300 to 450. The last 2 that have showed up on Ebay have been almost $800 and one was over a $1000. KEH is paying $400 for one in bargain condition if that tells you anything.

Nice, Reagan, wonderful color. The 28's, at least the AI and AIs lenses, 2.8 and 3.5's, seem to have great color.
No ccd sensor needed there~

funny you say that Ed. I've been plying with my "new" D200 and it loves the 28mm f3.5 HC, loves it, the viewfinder is even brighter with it. Strangely, it hates my favourite: the 55mm f1.2SC. No problems - just that the pics are blah...might as well shoot canon...lol

Tantalizing shot Philippe.

Ben has inspired me as well. I certainly would not have begun exploring pre-AI lenses without his encouragement AND playful baiting. You've already had time with Nikki so you certainly are aware of how fine these much older lenses are. I don't know whether you're leaning toward the 20 f/3.5 UD AI'd or the more recent 20 f/2.8 AI-s, but my guess is you will have great fun with either. I brought the 20 f/2.8 AI-s to Turkey primarily because I expected to find myself in tight quarters where a wider lens would come in handy. Doubtless, the

what is it with you guys?? Phillippe....love your work, really, love it....but this is weird. I never mentioned the 20 or the 85.

YOU asked ME if I preferred the 3.5 UD or the 2.8....and I posted a few pics. That was all YOU!!
And in all of that I've never mentioned an 85.

I love the 85mm f1.4 AIS.....but I don't think it'll give you anything the zeiss 85 doesn't (maybe less). I don't have the zeiss 85 (I have the 100) - but I've seen a lot of your stuff with the 85 on the zeiss thread. fantastic. I'd be sticking with it. Nikki's not in that league - but you know that, you've had it.

So let's stop with the Ben made me do it crap and go back to putting the blame on Curtis - where it belongs!!! lol

This lens was seriously under valued at that time Ron. Just over 3000 of the K and AI lenses were made and about 4000 of the pre AI. A total of 28000 of the 2.8 were made by way of comparison.

You are right Ben. I do less photoshop work with that 28 3.5 at the same camera settings
(My D200) than any of the other MF's I own, as far as color goes. But the new to me
105 2.5 AIs is close, and really wins out with extreme sharpness.

While we are talking lenses, that 180 ED MF is a wonder~

But the lens that really awes me is the 16mm 3.5. Shooting that big front
element right into the sun is amazing.

Ai-Nikkor 55/1.2 at f/1.4, cropped a tiny bit. I've tried the "Acros" film-setting in SilverEfex and like it for this shot.

Scott, despite fall slipping away you captured some nice colors with these two images. The second one with the tree trunks in front of the bright blue sky and yellow and green foliage is very pleasant.

Love to see those prices rising... Oops... there are still folks who don't own this lens.

Remember, everyone. These lenses will never be cheaper than they are right now. In the two plus years I've been building my kit I've seen prices only go one way... UP. So if you're fancy is tickled by a particular lens, this one or others, AND if you can scrape together a few dollars... go for it. The corollary is DON'T sell an MF lens unless you absolutely have to. Eventually, you'll live to regret it...


Wow and I thought I over paid at $550 for a mint non-AI. I do like the case.

My latest photos are not nearly so exciting. I apologise for the rushed quality but last night I came home to this in the mail - it's like it's by birthday (actually, co-incidently it was, so that was great timing by Tony)
I cannot wait to put some tubes on this and get snapping.

That one's reduced to $770. I just can come up with interesting framing with fisheye lenses (unlike you all 16 fisheye users here ), otherwise I would have at least thought about it.

Finally got a reversing ring to make my macro shots easier to do... Trusty Series E 50mm...

Oh, this isn't a crop either. Better than 1:1, more like 1.5:1. Need to figure that out to be sure.
