Just to back up what Philippe says about the Alsace....with the 55mm no less, open wide and MFD


Sounds yummy, time to start saving for a new venture! Thanks for the visual as well! Oh, what is MFD by the way? Thank you and Cheers!

Philip, "You've Changed" is terrific. You have a keen eye for very interesting street photos.


Thanks!

Here's one from today's walk to work, with the 50mm f/1.2 AI-s wide open.

Had to shoot this through the back door glass. Todays visitor with the 80-200 4.5 Auto. It was shot at 4.5 the exif was screwed up as I had to get the lens on pretty quick before he flew off. Notice the meal residue on the beak.


Great capture!
It that catchup on his beak?

Nice images everyone.

Samy, great moon shot. You and Jose are experts at this.

Chuong, great birthday image.

Chin, the hotel lobby pano is nicely done.

Monty, nice image of Rocky resting. BTW, since you will be winning the powerball lottery this week, any thoughts on buying an 85 1.4 or 35 1.4 for each of us in the group? The holidays are approaching.

Scott


Not a problem, everyone, make you lists!

Great capture. Getting a moving target in focus at f/1.2 takes skill!

Ray is right...the 24mm f2.8 ais and 28mm f2.8 ais are very close to performance twins.


I've just borrowed my brother's old 24 2.8 ais - unused for years and also survived a 300 ft fall down a mountain with him! I am amazed how good this lens is - I thought the D800E would find it out but it is remarkably good, corner to corner, with very little diffraction even at f/16. If the 28 is even better I may just have to try one! ;-)

I concentrated on a peak performance f-stop comparison. There is no sharpening, distortion correction, chromatic aberration removal, or any adjustments...just SOC. In general, the 28 has stronger contrast at every f-stop, and is sharper...particularly at wider f-stops. From f2.8 to f4 the 28mm ais has it's greatest advantage over the 24mm ais...at f5.6 to f11 it is pretty much a tie. I know I can bring peak performance to the wider apertures by correcting for the aforementioned items that I did not do for this comparison.

Many years ago I use to have a 24mm ais - that I shot

yeah, not me James - he did a lot of night shots at the Quay and at Darling Harbour with the 35 f2. I shot this the other night - but it doesn't show how it deals with coma:

A field test of the 216mm f/3.2 (135mm f/2 + TC16A) with a breeding Southern Lapwing (Vanellus chilensis):

This species does not construct an elaborate nest, on the contrary:

D7000 + TC16A teleconverter + Nikkor 135mm f/2 AIS (=216mm f/3.2) hand held.
ISO 320, f/4 at 1/4000s. ~20% crop.

Female brooding the same egg

D7000 + TC16A teleconverter + Nikkor 135mm f/2 AIS (=216mm f/3.2) hand held.
ISO 320, f/8 at 1/1000s. ~50% crop.

On a D7000 this combo is effectively a 324mm f/3.2 telephoto.


Wow the 135mm 2.0 can really take a teleconverter. Well done Jose

The one thing I loved and miss about the Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 AIS, is its close focus abilities!



Wow Americo, that's a really great sample of that lenses ability and beautifully taken. Well shot!

What a nice shot Philip. BTW I love my 35mm 1.4 I know that a copy will be terrific in your hands. Here's one I took today at F2.0

MFD = Minimum Focus Distance. I wouldn't be surprised to find out I just made that up and no-one else uses it, I still don't know what MBP means which Monty keeps using.

And Cheers right back!

Wonderful! I think I know what lens I want next after looking at this. Well, maybe after a 180mm. Hmm, decisions, decisions.
