Monty... 85mm is YOUR focal length. You keep impressing us with excellent work. Street photography can be a challenge, but you definitely are handling it well. I really enjoy your BW images.


THanks!
I wonder if the 55mm will unseat my 85mm?

Here are a couple more from my trip downdown.

I certainly enjoy the 55 Monty, but for street photography, I prefer longer lenses. My guess is you'll get great use out of them both.

So this is likely the 44,444th post of this thread. How sweet is that?

I'll drop a photo in for the fun of it... this is a photography website after all...

Shot with the 105 f/1.8 AI-s. Last apples of the season.

Have any of you had any experience with the 105/4 AIS Micro? Bjorn rates it very highly.
Sometimes when I'm out in the woods with my 105/2.5 AIS I try to use it for some closeups and, well, it's a challenge w/o tubes.

Gosh, there's a plethora of 105mm MF lenses out there:

105/1.8
105/2.5
105/2.8 Micro
105/4 Micro

How's the 105/4 micro at infinity? Some macro lenses are stellar at infinity.

The MFNAS keeps on rolling . . .

I'd say that over the two plus years this thread has been in existence there have been perhaps two or three folks who were bent out of shape when I played police man regarding the decision to limit this thread to Nikon glass on Nikon cameras. We even had a discussion about the subject on the thread at one time since the title of the thread had led to occasional confusion. The consensus was that keeping the thread for Nikon cameras only would avoid potential conflict. It was at that time that I amended the first post in the thread

Had the 105 F4 Micro. I thought it was better at other things than it was as a micro lens. It definitely was not in the class as the 55 2.8. I tried it with the PN-11 and quite frankly I thought the 105 2.5 looked better than it did with that setup.

Hey everyone. Wanted to stop in and let you know what I found out. The Dr.'s have decided to do another MRI and then they are going to try a series of Steroid injections into my neck to try and relieve the pain rather then go directly to surgery. So I'm a bit relieved for now and hoping it works.

So tonight I had a studio session and at the end the young lady obliged to let me mount a MF lens for one final shot. So just to prove I can still use them here is one with the 85MM F1.4 on the D4 under studio lights. At F8

Thanks Monty. BTW I just checked the tracking and you may want to run to webex in the morning. I'm just saying there might be a 55MM F1.2 waiting for you when the post office delivers.

These 2 are from too far away, I feel. I find that street shots need to be almost within touching distance to have any impact.

Well, it's a Nikon-mount SLR...

But it makes me wonder why you would like to hang out with a bunch of people as you described:

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

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

On D700 at infinity my 105mm f/4 AIS micro is quite weak at f/4 but very good stopped down, I don't have samples at infinity, just some close up where I find it very sharp with good bokeh.
