It does, but you get used to it.

Great samples Georg. I bet it's strange holding that tiny camera with these lenses on it.

Last night the sky was so clean that this was possible with a 1280 x 1.5 (D7000) = 1920mm telephoto wide open:


Moon with a 1280mm f/9 telephoto wide open 800plustc16a by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + TC-16A teleconverter + Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 AIS IF-ED + tripod + remote trigger.
ISO 250, f/9 (wide open, f/5.6x1.6= f/8.96) at 1/160s.
The exif shows 1200mm f/9.5, but this is because the menu for inputing non- cpu lenses does not have f/9 or 1280mm. ~25% crop.
Even though f/11 or f/16 will deliver slightly better results, this is to show how this lens is good wide open even with a TC.

Laura and Georg:
What are your general impressions with the V1 + FT-1 adapter use with MF Nikkors?
Is the viewfinder OK for focusing? There is a dot for confirmation of focus? Is metering possible?

Laura,
She is still tough. Her expression was one of "biting her lip". My seven kids hosted the dinner this year, and they started telling stories. This photo (two of my sons David and Jesse) kind of shows the atmosphere at the time I took her photo.

I'll have to catch up tomorrow. I really need to go to bed, but I've spent much of the day and evening processing photos from yesterday and need to post one photo before turning it.

As I mentioned there were two babies present, one a bit over two months old and one ten days old. Here is a photo of the youngster on his father's lap... Shot with the 85 f/1.4 AI-s at f/2 in manual mode because of the poor lighting. Post processing was a challenge for that reason as well.



Mother and dad are researchers in the medical field, both with Ph.D. degrees, both working at UC San Francisco and both from Finland. They told the story yesterday about the birth of their child. Husband and wife share an interest in rock climbing and are in extremely good physical condition. When Maikki began having contractions, Ville, her husband was at the laboratory where there is lousy cell phone service and terrible land line service. Eventually she reached him and he rushed home. They proceeded to WALK the five hundred yards to the birthing center where she had the baby. When it was time to leave the hospital, they were told they could not be discharged until they produced a car seat for the baby. The fact they'd walked to the hospital and intended to walk home was beside the point. Ville had to walk home and bring the car seat back before they would release mother and child... who then walked home as Ville carried the car seat.

I'll share more photos from the day, but not until I've caught up with what I missed over the last two days. Now to bed!

CGrindahl, Great heart warming story, with the perfect photographic memory to boot! You've gotta love those hospital staff, for there caring, and awesome work they do! Of course I have extreme love for all things UC San Francisco, and its branches during my family's ordeal, so I am obviously going to be biased! I must say congratulations to these fine parents, and thank them for their contributions to society! Thanks again, for your time, and sharing their fantastic memories!

Jose, the moon's upside down! Superb again!!

At that magnification you should try some of the planets. I believe you should be able to see the rings of Saturn and a pretty good look at Jupiter.

James the 24mm 2.8 AIS is a wonderful close focus lens that is defiantly on par with with the 28mm 2.8 I had a chance to shoot with both of those lenses side by side and could see no difference in quality. Here's a shot taken with the 24mm 2.8 AIS

Thank you very much, however, I owe great thanks to my model Kitty, Luna Bleu.Rodriguez, plus a few outtakes! She is a very awesome daughter, and model!

The 800 AIS at KEH is gone. I think Monty got it, so he doesn't need the 400 any more

I was going to post this earlier, but you beat me to it.

The article also points out that Nikon also published a patent for a 50/1.2 AFS back in 2010 - so who knows when or if we'll see either one of these. I'm sure the 50/1.2 AIS will not decrease much in value as a new 50/1.2 AFS will likely be $2K-ish kind of lens. Who knows what a 58/1.2 AFS will go for, though if they do come out with one it will likely depress the astronomical prices for the 58/1.2 MF version just like the 28/1.4D prices

If they do eventually come out with the Noct, I wonder how much better it will be after the benefits of computer design.
