I agree!

Monty did they deliver your new lens to Webex today? USPS site seems to be messed up checking tonight.

Matt


The office (Webex's) is closed on Saturday. I believe we told USPS not to deliver on Saturday. We don't like things sitting in the mail box overnight.

I'm actually happy it will fall into my hands on Monday. Something to look forward to

Sorry, another one!

As I was developing this I noticed that Ann is looking through the view finder with her left eye?





Ann, I wonder if she if left handed

I've been lurking for a long time but now feel a need to join the list.

I've been shooting Nikon since the mid 60's but unfortunately most of my old equipment was replaced long ago. I still have a few 'F' bodies that I use for paperweights.

Since looking that this thread I'm remembering how great some of the older manual lenses were, and now that I have a decent camera body that allows manual focusing, I'm back in the game.

Today I met one of your regulars, Alan (huddy), his wife and super cute son, and bought one of his lenses. Turns out he lives just up the road from me. Actually it's about 80 miles, but in Texas that's just up the road.

The enclosed shot was taken with another recent acquisition, a 35mm f/2.8 AI conversion on a D700.

I'll remind you again Claus... you don't have to subscribe to Fred Miranda to post photos on the thread. You only need to have a location somewhere on the internet that will host your photos. Then you use whatever links are made available to you by the site and post them within your message on the thread. I'd say the majority of participants to this thread do it that way. It is simple, no fuss and you get to share photos with the rest of us. Give it some thought. If you have questions send me a private message.

Yeah, I am one that doesn't pay on the site. I use Flikr to host my pics and use the link produced under "Share" to post here.

You are right, it is the 35-70mm f/3.5 AI (72mm filter)



I owned that lens but sold it after shooting with the later AI-s version with the 62mm filter ring. The later lens had much richer color. Were I to buy one I'd likely go with the AI-s. Bjorn appreciates the AI, which is the reason I bought it, but I wasn't ultimately impressed enough to keep it.

Welcome Larry. Any friend of Alan's, even a casual one, is a friend of ours. I'm glad you decided to join us. It was the D700 that led me into my fascination with Nikon manual focus glass. It is a great camera for this kind of shooting. And you're definitely not alone among our regulars who shot Nikon decades ago who are happy to come back to these beautiful lenses. So have fun and come play with us.

I crossed the Richmond-San Rafael bridge this morning and stopped twice to take photos of the span. The first was shot with the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF, the second with the 55 f/1.2 S-C AI'd.


On the opposite side of the Bay you see San Quentin penitentiary death row.


Tankers at the dock in the foreground are delivering crude oil to the Chevron refinery off the right frame. Super tankers are not permitted in the Bay, so these smaller ships shuttle back and forth multiple times a day off-loading the tankers.

Thanks for the welcome.
I used to have a D300 that was impossible to focus manually. The D700 is a joy to use with the older lenses.
I also picked up a Nikon 1 V1 and the Nikkor adapter so I can use any Nikon lens on it (with a 2.7x crop factor}. Turns the old 300 into an 810mm. That's going to be fun.

I also shoot with my left eye at the finder, though I am right-handed. I asked my eye doctor about this, and she explained that we all have a dominant eye (which also often turns out to be slightly sharper than our non-dominant eye).

Makes for lots of smudged LCD screens, but using my right eye just doesn't feel right.

Wow, 29 pages since my last visit!
I was away for 5 days during a field trip with students to collect ornithological data.

Thanks Mark, Georg and Curtis for the comments.

Too many great images to comment, just some:

Chin, Monty and Ron, some spetacular dog shots from you;

John, amazing pano of the Haleakala;

Ed, great details on the "old mine cart" and the fall landscapes;

Chuong, lovely bird with the 105/2.5;

Ray, congrats on the new 35/1.4, and what debut images!

Philippe, unbelievable sharp image of Cahedral of Strasbourg;

Peter, liked your beach panos, well done;

Kevin, very nice extreme macros with the reversed 50/1.8 E;

Jeff, amazing and very creative "reflecting pool" image;

Matt, all the best to you, and what a beautiful portrait with the 85/1.4;

Leighton, loved the sunsets with the 180/2.8;

Monty, that "3 girls + pizza" is a spetacular capture - you are the king of right capture timing!

Samy, liked the tree trunk bark;

Roberto, impressive flower shots with the 105/4 micro;

James, great "lens porn";

Georg, what a great capture of the "noisy road";

Curtis, loved the bridge shots, mostly the first one with the 300/4.5 - great B&W PP.

The second one is, if I'm not mistaken, a turkey vulture. The first are rats with wings ok, Canada geese just seem that way, what with the proliferation of them everywhere...

Do you want the 180 focal length? I'd still wait for the ED AI-S version though.

Need your advice guys... I have all the lenses I need and even more... but I have a chance to purchase a 180/2.8 AI - obviously non ED version with $200. It has very clean glass but with some marks on the body, some little scratches, etc... What would you do?

In the last few days I've shot close to nothing personal stuff. Here's a picture taken thursday for a newspaper - for a story about roadway noise. The editors asked an actor of the local theatre to pose for this illustration. It's really great to work with actors - especially with so cool and friendly fellows like the one below. This take is a bit over the top and the paper picked another one from this short series, but it's my personal fav :-)

I've always wondered how those droplets stay put. Around here if I tried that, one of the cats (Tom, most likely) would be butting in looking for either a pat/scratch, or wanting their photo taken... Really nice, Kevin.

I use mine on the D200, D300s, D1h, D1x, and D700, and also the V1 as well, although it feels more like putting a lens cap on the lenses

These are 50mm Series E on Nikon FE-2. I'm not at all a landscape photographer but apart from these (which I shot in September on Tri-X film and am still scanning in) I'm mainly shooting children's portraits for a bit of Christmas money and I can't post those or nudes (ditto). So Scottish landscapes it is!
