Yes, you do Monty.

The 400 5.6's not too weighty at all for a tele that long, and very handholdable.

There's also the 300 f4.5 AIS, even lighter, and that one's very inexpensive.

If I can post boring portrait after portrait no one is going to crab aout your wonderful landscapes!
I especially like these two! Great conversion!

Keep up the good work.

Good question Leighton, now that you say it I am curious too.

Dean, these are all very impressive.

Agree with Matt, that first one is a beautiful image of that bridge.

Wonderful shots Curtis, and I really love the way you controlled the highlights through the conversion of the first one.

Any of you guys have experiences with the 35-105mm f3.5-4.5 Ai-S zoom?
Is it on the same league optically with the venerable 50-135mm f/3.5 ais??

It is so cheap in mint condition at ebay that I am tempted...

I don't know anything about the 35-105, but I'll go out on the limb and say that NO MF zoom compares to the 50-135mm f3.5 AI-s!

Oh, and welcome back!

I was hoping it was more than a one day event. Oh, by the way, there's some camera show/shopping thing at a church down there next weekend. http://www.cameratradeshow.com

Laura, The event took about 2 hours but only the last 15 minutes worth viewing since they all will try to lit up at once.

Monty, that moon bothered me a lot. I wanted it in my image so I was running around finding a spot to include it but also the reflections. I was hoping I had a 20mm or a 24mm would do. That was with a 28mm f2.0

Matt, I took it continuously for a while but the far left never turned on. I am not sure why. Maybe my angle was bad for that balloon.



Looks like a good bargain! Welcome! Might want to update your profile though, we all peek now and then

I just picked up a 24 2.8 AIS from my local camera store for $180. What a lens!!!! I cannot believe the colors, contrast, and sharpness on my D600.


More neat shots!

Bert. glad to see the dogs are getting along well. Almost time for me to try the Santa hat on the cats again.

Leighton, I figured that I wasn't the only one here that liked them. They can be really hard to find in the stores though.

Curtis - I love the perspective on the first bridge shot. I'm still amazed at the amount of steel used in this thing!

Laura - You've included a shot of my favorite candy bar.

Monty - Love the stealthy Rocky!

baumgarten0712 - Is there anyway you can add your first name to your profile so we don't have to call you baumgarten0712? Congrats on the 24mm, I need to use mine more.

Bert - Sometimes it's even hard for me to catch up on this thread, and I'm probably the biggest blabbermouth!


Samy, I'm thinking I should try some flying aircraft, only I can't get to the airport in the mornings to catch the flights out

Thank you for the welcome and kind words.

Here's one that I almost missed. I had just changed lenses and wasn't ready to shoot when this couple walked by. First use of the 80-200 4.5 AI.

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.



Phil,

It's easy, to avoid LCD smudge turn the camera upside down and trigger with your left thumb

This looks like a lens just waiting for Curtis to buy! Isn't there a lot of bling in CA?


I would bet Andreas already has one and maybe Rafel!

This looks like something Reagan would do doesn't it Curtis! Calling this picture "of a couple"
Real nice image though!

Weekends with a braai (pronounced BRY as in DRY) (barbecue, cook out) have their benefits but the downside is that too much time is spent marinating, making fires, drinking wine, eating and being sociable with the result that no pics are taken. All one can do is to live vicariously through one's highly talented friends on this thread and enjoy.

Well done everyone!!
