Matt, all the best with getting back very quickly to good health.

James very nice work with the reversed 20mm. That is not easy to do at all.

Jorge, the bike handles and the background were very pleasing.

Curtis, very nice portraits of Sue and your friend! And a nice portrait of you by Ray.

Ed, both those western MD scenic shots were very pleasant.

Leighton, very nice sunset down in VA. I liked the vertical version even more.

Georg, the bright pic of the bridge is too nice to be just a vacation snap.

Ray from Ohio, those lines and angles are very well seen from your window!

Peter, I think it more than tickles if you put your fingers in the socket I have a memory of trying that when I was very little. Tried only once..

Dean, great to keep on seeing more Cambodia pictures. Those are all delightful. That's interesting to have heard from the guide about his recollection of Khmer Rouge times. Evil era.

Philippe, that last one is a thought provoking shot, the one that says Bourse at the top, then the pillars, and then the ordinary looking guy sitting with the backpack on the steps underneath.

Monty, despite the fact that I'm not commenting much lately due to many factors from my life I want to tell you that I'm carefully following Nikki's adventure on the North American continent and I am very pleased with everything I saw by now, including the Oskosh break! You guys are doing a great job! Hats off!

Yes, when I worked in prison one of the residents cleaned an electrical socket with a wet cloth. He wasn't too pleased at coming back to life after a minute of so and finding himself still in prison!

Walked with the Ai'd 50 1.4S today. Utterly rued the decision to be lazy and not keep a tele such as the 300 or 400, or even the 180 in a bag; there was a very large hawk that was sitting in a tree and the 50 just couldn't reach far enough. One thing now that the leaves and the colors are gone, there's other things to see that were hidden before.

Glad you are enjoying it! It was fun having the lens. I'm really in awe that this has happened. FIrst, that Ben was kind enough to share his lens. Second, that it is making it's way around the world without an issue. Very few of us have met face to face, yet we respect each other allowing something like this to happen!

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I'd be an active member of a forum like this!

Fun times

Does not matter most of the time what you take! It will be the wrong lens. The only value of AF lenses. Those funky 28-300 Zooms etc. My brother in law always says walk closer. Not easy for a hawk in a tree. Nice shots Samy

Checking out the 135 F2 I bought last week on the forum. My model works for biscuits so pretty cheap. I like this lens though it is kind of a brick on the end of the camera.

Great bokeh! I don;t think you can go wrong with doggy pictures

I think part of the appeal of these lenses is how heavy they are. Whenever I pick up one of the new AF lenses I'm surprised it doesn't blow away in the wind.

And now for some large aperture shots with the AI'd 50 1.4S. All at f/2.

This lens is a bit bigger than the 50 f2 HC, and smaller than the 55 1.2S. Plan to get a pic of all three together.

Towards the end of the walk I said what the heck, let's point the 50 at the flying geese, and so here's a GIF shot - geese in flight.

The second shot is of the "AI'd normal family" (at least my version of it). The big brother 55 1.2S is in the middle, the 50 1.4S to the right and the little 50 2 HC on the left. All ~ 40 years old and in rather good shape.

Ron, thanks, and that's true, just can't cover all eventualities.

That dog with the 135 f2 is superb!
