Matt, sometimes the treatment can relieve you of the pain enough and give the body the time to heal itself a bit, hopefully you can avoid the surgery.

Thanks I've been put on a combination of oral steroids, Anti-inflammitories, and pain medicine has relieved the pain enough for me to use the camera when I'm not being paid. I'm just hoping they can find a long term non surgical "fix" for this. It feels good to be able to get out and almost enjoy myself, I'm sure it's short lived but I'll take whatever break I can get at this point. It's been a rough time lately.

These are very nice Philippe. I especially like the composition of the third image. The focus point is just right for my eye.

I call it bokeh with character. Sometimes one wants something other than that glassy smooth background. All three photos look good Ray with that new acquisition. Somewhere yesterday I came across an ad for a 35 1.4 AIS about $1k!

Thank you Leighton. So many people complained about the "busy" bokeh that I never gave this lens a chance. Then I used Curtis's and I was very pleased!

Interesting Eric, I have never even seen a picture of a cotton field before, very neat! And interesting structure, you may want to get a close up of it if you go by there again.

And btw good strategy, it works

Can anyone share some 135mm f2.8 ais, and 200mm f4.0 ai images. I'd like to see what they are capable of producing, and compare it to what I am getting. It will determine if I give both focal lengths another try.

Agreed with Monty. Bert, the rainy shot is very nice, and the colorful candles really hit the spot.

That 800 5.6 was still there earlier today Monty BTW, its only 5.5 kg, just looked it up on that photosynthesis site My 500 F4P's 3kg, and that's already a hefty load to pull out of its case and mount the camera on it.

Jose, Curtis pointed out earlier that the 800 + 2XTC is 2400 since you have the D7000. Even more amazing how you keep that setup stable. I got a longer QR plate recently for the 500mm, with two screws instead of one, I think its somewhat less jittery now.

James, a 135 2.8 Series E and 200 F4 AIS were two of the earliest lenses I got. They are very nice lenses but got neglected largely because I mostly use shorter or longer focal lengths and got passed down but I will find some of the earlier pictures I have saved and will post them in the next couple days.

Ok, so tonight I decided to test out the V1 with the 300 f/4.5. I tried shooting some aircraft overhead, but nothing recognizable came of it. Definitely not something I'm good at handholding, yet, but I braced it on a headstone and got this shot.


Beautiful, Laura.

Very emotional shot, Monty.

It's wonderful that she is in excellent care and I hope she had a wonderful life before the onset of the Alzheimer's.

So another week has passed. Between being extremely busy at work, a long commute and having a cold for most of the week, I have not been able to post anything. I do apologize to all of you that posted all these beautiful inspiring pictures. I am trying to keep up with the thread, but at this pace just reading all of it is even hard for me to do. I don't know how all of you manage this so well.

Today it rained for most of the day so I stayed indoors and experimented with my flash (and umbrella) on

Nice shots, Bert.

Great to see Stella doing well.

Absolute brilliant shot, Philippe. Really nicely composed and captured at the right second. I think the 50 agrees with you.

One of the members of my local camera club asked in an email forum about the Costco deal on the D600.(D600- 16-85 and 70-300 I believe) The person who does all equipment reviews answered. "The Nikon D600 needs good glass,not a kit lens. B&H has a complete selection of recent Nikon lenses." He says the same thing about the D800. "you must have the finest latest Nikon glass to take advantage of all the megapixels"

Hi Ron. I would be interested to get your take on this ... what do you think? Are these people talking rubbish?

I just can't see it but perhaps I'm not as picky. When I bought my D800E, the guys in the shop were saying, you will really need to use excellent lenses now ... blah, blah ... but all of my MF and AF lenses work perfectly fine with it and I don't see much of a difference. It seems a ploy to upsell more expensive lenses.

And on the flip side ... I have noticed that lenses like the 50/1.2 & 180/2.8 are actually sharper wide open !!!

I posted this before, but I'd like to use it as a reference to the D800E and the 180 wide open. To me this is actually better than my D700 with the same lens. These older beauties have no issue with increased res. The second is a 100% crop taken wide open from a fair distance away ... I couldn't dream of asking for any better.

I still think 99% of the time this talk of using better lenses is to make us buy more
