GrŁezi Roland,
A great shot of a very familiar subject. Suggest she texts 222 but I guess I'm old fashioned not having a "Smart" phone.

Hello

My name is Roland. How do I find your names? Do I have to click on the avatar to see the profile entry?

The picture should contain all the data. Most important:
1/100 s @ 1:1.4, ISO 800 (-0.3 EV) - 4:5 crop, MF 50mm 1:1,2 on Nikon D3

And to be more specific: The version of the lens that is still sold new. I got mine this year, new from Nikon.


Welcome again Roland. For the people whose names aren't obvious, they should have their first name listed in their profile. Thanks for the lens data, I look at the efix but I couldn't determine which 50 it was. The 1.2 is well beloved among the members here.

Congrats Chuong, that was a beautiful lens that even tempted me, but I'm holding out for an 85mm to be my next one.

Well the norm would be me buying this thing. NO! I am on a selling roll. 9 in the last week
Maybe John needs another one. He likes 2 of each lens.

I had one but couldn't hold the thing still. My wife would say "Do you want me to hold the end of the lens for you since it's shaking all over the place"Great lens just not for this old guy

Some more from Sweden, this time using the 28mm f2.8 series E.

The light at this time of year in Sweden is wonderful (as long as you find a clear sky). The sun is so low in the sky that photos taken at 11am have that early dawn feel and the 'golden hour' lasts all day (Day lasting from 9 to 3) then you can take some fantastic night shots from 4pm onwards.
We were lucky to arrive after a nice dusting of snow, but I was amazed how badly Stockholm seemed to be able to cope with a little snow, It made getting about with a baby buggy very difficult as the footpaths were clogged with ice and snow. Some home town pride that Winterthur can get the same snow as Stockholm and have the streets clear by 7am.
However it did make the city look beautiful, even if there was a high risk of getting hit by snow falling from the steep roofs.

Beautiful light on a C19th wooden building







28mm makes a fab portrait lens in the Christmas market







11am looks like dawn over an icey lake

And 3 more from the 28mm (Sorry all)

The first two are from the Vasa, the 28mm struggled next to the 50mm and the 105mm to capture anything like the same sharpness (not really surprising) and so I only used it for a couple of sweeping shots to show the scale of the ship before switching to the beefier lenses. It's the first time that I have really hit a limitation on this otherwise fine lens, as you can see from the previous shots it renders colours and light magnificently.

The last is a night shot of the side of the Nordiskamuseet. It doesn't show any particular peculiarity of the lens, it's was just too nice not to include.

From the blunt end







This is 4pm!

Welcome Michael, I'm glad you found us. Another new member Roland, posted today with his 50mm f1.2. Seems to be a very popular lens lately! Nice first image and don't be shy in joining in the conversation.

Not sure it'll sell better with this, wife wasn't impressed, lots of splashing and getting the hairclips wet

Not very good at converting to B/W but it looks better than the color

What would make it better beside Monty doing it

GrŁezi Mark - I already commented on a few of yours, which I know and like - I'm a native Winterthurer and been living there for over 30 years. So I pretend to know most locations you showed us in here, from the ones in that town.


I got to catch up, I see...

I've only got 2 MF lenses so far - the 50/1.2 (newer one, 9 bladed), and a 105/2.5 (don't ask me about more specific model info...)

Thank you all for the kind welcome.

Roland
