Curtis, thinking about your picture from San Rafael I just had to crawl really deep into my archive.
Here's a vacation-snap, taken with the Ais 135/2 on my old Nikon D1.
This 2.7-megapixel-wonder wasn't exactly built for MF-Nikkor-users and in this case I've managed to overexpose the scene by a healthy amount.
But family and friends liked this picture for it's artistic look :-)

Thanks Monty. I can't always put my finger on why a picture appeals to me, thanks for helping put words to that. Appreciate the comments from Georg and Ray as well.

One of my daughters majors is in art/photography. She is always quizzing me, "Why do you like that picture? What do you like about it?"

It is surprisingly hard for me to come up with the answers to her questions I just like it is not an acceptable answer

Leighton your sunset photos are the bomb!
Georg I have to agree with your family. It is very artistic. Love it!
Here are a couple shots with the 35mm 1.4 The first is using Curtis's lens, taken during his visit and the second is taken with my new one. I used my favorite lens as my subject
I used two of his lenses during his visit and fell in love with both of them. That began my pursuit to obtain them both! NMLAS at it's best.

Wow - Is that Curtis' 16/3.5? If it is boy if that lens could talk! It's probably had a very active life!

Nice portrait of Curtis!

Claus, welcome to the thread! I look forward to seeing your work soon.

Monty, you certainly see well with an 85. It is little wonder that Nikki or the 85/1.4 rarely leaves your camera.

Leighton, that sunset is a lovely sight for us stuck here in the gray area.

Curtis, lovely fall colors.

Ray, I like the composition on the roof and window.

Georg, excellent shot of the bridge.

I am afraid I too am about to enter the Leica wormhole. I currently have sourced an M6 TTL for a steal and am hoping that works out as I have missed out on great deals on a Canadian-made M4-P and a nice Zeiss Biogon 35/2.8... I certainly have no aspiration to own as many M-Mount lenses as I do Nikkors... They can be pricey. I can't see using anything more than a 28, 35, 50, or maybe the excellent voigtlander 15 4.5.

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.


Friendly for some maybe. I was hounded out of this thread all because my Nikon D200 (labeled Fuji S5 Pro but built by Nikon) dared to have a Fuji sensor in it instead of a SONY one. How's that for friendly? I bought my Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AIS and it was because of lurking in this thread. Then I come and show my work and get immediately hassled because I DARED to use a D200 that didnt have a thread approved SONY sensor in it.

Yeah, that's friendly. Guess what, that Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 was my first and last manual focus lens purchase, all because of the warm "friendliness" showed here. I lost my appreciation for these lenses real fast.

I guess it was all my fault though. I should have known that posting images from a Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AIS lens was OFF LIMITS in a thread titled MANUAL FOCUS NIKON GLASS.

I've never seen such amazing arrogance over what sensor someone chooses to shoot with.

Never mind though, continue to believe you're "friendly".

As a long time participant in this thread I will confirm that it is friendly and its success bears this out.

One of the reasons is that we are polite to each other - if there are issues they can always be sorted out in a PM which would have been appropriate in this case.

Very few people take the trouble to find out about the specs of every available camera on the market and I'm sure that most have no idea that the Fuji S5 pro is a "generic" Nikon D200.

Having said that, I'm sure noone would submit photos taken with a Nikon camera and a Voigtlander lens to MY BEST NIKON SHOTS.

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

Whoa! Man to you hold a grudge or what? No sense in getting your panties in a knot. It's pretty simple actually. The "rule" of this thread states Nikon manual focus glass, on NIKON cameras. What part of this don't you understand? Yes you're right, my D600 has a Sony sensor, but that doesn't mean Sony cameras are allowed. Funny how people get mad because they don't want to play by the rules of the game.
