Not sure, but I may get spanked for posting this one.

Tonight at my wife's family Christmas party Eric and I swapped lenses. Eric owns my old D700. THe D700 has my 55 f/1.2 on it. (THe one I bought from Matt) The photo was taken with Eric's 50mm f/1.4 AF.

I walked around and a took a LOT of pictures using Erics lens. You will not be surprised that I've really gotten the AF bug out of my system. I definitely enjoy shooting manual more than AF. I'm almost as fast with MF as I am with AF. THe biggest surprise was that my keeper rate is about the same with AF and MF.

Last week it was the fancy Canon AF. THis week it's the Nikon AF. I'm MF through ans though!

So we got a bit of Christmas rain out here. Just the kind of weather for a few plastic bags, and lenses without fancy electronic gizmos. Unfortunately I'm nowhere near my fancy electronic gizmo with Lightroom, so I'm working with a Capture NX2 trial.


D600 - 105/2.5 Ai - 10sec - /11 - ISO 100

Monty - is that the 50 1.4G?? you will definitely be spanked but I like the shallow depth of field - he's so blurred and the right side of his glasses almost disappear.

But it's a picture of a Manual Focus Lens!!
But more importantly, I am no longer lustung for Autofocus lenses!
Initially it was a money thing. MF lenses are so affordable when compared to their AF counterparts. Now I prefer them. Thanks folks! You saved me a lot of money and I have a bunch of very cool lenses!

Scott - the pic is misleading - most of the forecourt of the Opera House is a building site, has been for the last couple of years - you can see the hoardings on the bottom left of the pic - I cropped them out. You don't see that angle often because there's an 8 foot spiked fence blocking the view - but like an idiot I climbed over it.

That's a great snow shot - especially for us. don't know what that tree is?

Hi Ben
Thanks for the comment and the info on the Opera House.

The plant in the photo is known around here as a "burning bush". Bright red foliage in the fall and then these berries. It is considered an invasive species in some areas as it is not native.

stop with this Phillippe - you're killing me. Yesterday in the post Christmas lull I found myself cruising the net looking for a 24mm PCE bargain - as if! But I resisted.

These are interesting - the second shot looks like you could have taken that with a non PCE lens - help me out and tell me that the PCE didn't really add much.
