Thanks Scott! I find I get a bit rusty if I haven't used my gear in a while and recently a couple of weeks goes by without using it - not good!

Well, Santa was good to me this year and found me a 55mm that I believe has been factory AI'd. Can anyone tell from these pictures? I won't actually get the lens until Thursday or Friday.

Tony

P.S. These are not my pictures, just ones I downloaded from the auction.

Apart from Rafael, there are some really nice images on the last few pages but due to family commitments today and tomorrow I can't comment in detail. Once again thanks for sharing.

Monty - Love the shot of Higgs and the straw!

Curtis - Nice to see you again, love the look on Joel's face! Don't be a stranger!

John - Speaking of strangers! Love the cat and the one waiting for the hot chocolate.

Mihai - Another stranger, WOW! It's good to see you as well. Must be homecoming week.

Rafael - I like the fisheye shot very much. Can you believe that!

Scott - I thought about the 28-50mm, but the jury is still out on this one.

Tony - I believe that's what you have there.

All this discussion of manual glass, I had to go to the basement and find my 105mm f1.8.

I stuck it on my D7000 and took a pic of our granddaughter. ISO 1000, no Photoshop other than to resize.

John, welcome neighbor! Good to see another Virginian here. Don't let that lens gather dust! That's one of Nikon's best!

Hello folks,

I'm a newcomer to Nikon, but not new to manual focus lenses. On Contax and NEX and Ricoh GXR I've been using a variety of lenses but to date have had very little experience with Nikon optics so I've got something of a learning curve to go through and some fun no doubt. I'm reading through this very long (congrats!) thread with great interest.

On full frame film rangefinder cameras I shoot 25mm, 35mm (mostly), and a fast 50/1.5 and 75/2.5 for portraits. On crop cameras I've been shooting 25mm(mostly - 35mm equivalent) and 50/1.5 (75mm equivalent) but have also

Mike, you've come to the right place. Someone will be around soon you can answer your question.

It snowed, sleeted and rained all day yesterday. I went out in the late afternoon and saw this area where the sun was TRYING to come out. It actually never made it.

Wow, some great images on the past few pages. Like Peter I will catch up on them when the madhouse settles down.

For a slightly wider view I'm wondering, ignoring focus method, how the 24/2.8 AiS and 24/2.8 AF-D, and 28/2.8 AiS compare strictly on an optical basis?

Best of the season to one and all,
Mike


My answer is based mostly on what I've read about these respective lenses, though I own the 28 f/2.8 ais and briefly owned the 24 f/2.8 af-d.

The 28 f/2.8 ais is a step up from either of the other two. It is generally considered one of the better lenses Nikon ever made. The two 24s are, if I'm not mistaken, almost identical optically and while good, neither is great. I was mostly unimpressed with the 24mm when I owned it.
