You arrived during my recent sabbatical and I wanted to extend another welcome to you. I note that you've listed your gear in your profile which is a good thing for all of us gear junkies, but I'd ask that you add your first name as well. We're on a first name basis on this thread and it is nice to use something other than a participant's username. I'm delighted we have another person from Europe joining our conversation. I met quite a few wonderful Danish photographers during my time sharing photos on TrekEarth. We can use all the Danes we can find...

Have fun! This is a great thread with some wonderful folks from around the world.

A pair leftover when the color was good a few weeks ago. This was about 35 miles from my home in Maryland, in Pennsylvania , a place called Pleasant Valley. The clouds were playing peekaboo with the sun.
Both taken with the D200 and the 50mm1.8 AI.


Love your pictures from rural Pennsylvania! The first shot reminds me of model-railway-landscapes - all the tiny cars and tractors, the amazing lot of details.

San Francisco really is the center of the universe... didn't you know that Ray?

I love the fact another lens from a thread participant is staying within our cyber community. That said, buying from Canada can take quite a long time. I bought a lens from someone across the border from Detroit and it was shipped east to Montreal before heading west. And it sat in Montreal for quite some time before it crossed the border. But sometimes patience is required. When talking about these lenses, it is usually worth the wait. I'm so happy you got this lens Ray.

I'll be packing Nikki up for shipment to Alan! As I've said earlier, the lens adventure lit a fire under me!
The last picture I took using Nikki was of it's replacement. My favorite lens, 85mm f/1.4 AI-s

Gotta love your sense of humor Ron. And that Carly Simon song sure brought back fond memories. Knowing Ray's musical interests he probably has a few associations himself. Great music. Thanks for the memories...

Jeff, to join the chorus: I love your reflection-shot! Very well seen and beautifully captured scene.

Monty, the "Customer Service"-poster behind your alternate Webex-salute made me laugh: the handshake was the symbol of the East German Communist Party

Jorge, the braces-shot is really something else ;-) The blue light works miracles (sorry for my English).

Leighton, the horizontal shot of the sky works better for me - I'm missing the blue streaks on the vertical version.
edit: after a second and a third look I prefer the vertical shot.

Claus, welcome! Where in Denmark are you located? I live in Rostock, just a big hop from Falster :-)

He bought it from Ryan in Calgary, who recently sold some of his Nikon gear to finance his Leica passion. Ray snapped up the 85 f/1.4 AI-s, which appears to be in beautiful condition, for a very fair price. I could tell from how he responded after using my 85 that it wouldn't take him too long to get one of his own. It is a great lens on both DX and FX cameras.

Wonderful Claus. A few participants have comments on how friendly this thread is and I agree. We're really here to celebrate these lenses and to encourage one another both in kit building and in exploring manual focus photography. There are some very talented photographers here who not only inspire us, but who share their experience. There is nothing not to like in this conversation and I've been participating for two years and three months... remarkable! Now you can participate as well.

Thanks Curtis and Georg again. I had forgotten that Ryan was selling off to go Leica. I played with a Leica lens the other day at the camera museum and to be perfectly honest, I don't see the appeal. But...to each their own.
