Samy, 100% crop just means snip out of the original and paste into a new file as new almost looks like the bird is standing on its beak on the water
Here's a crop of the diving gull. Laura, not sure how to calculate a 100% crop.
David. I entertained getting it and cannibalizing the one I have and making the nicer one have the kit AI to it. There's 52 lenses there at the moment.
Oh, and for anyone looking, there's a 16 f/2.8 fisheye there at the moment...

I guess "Nikki" is has an external following
Curtis didn't get it but he definitely made me do it! I have grow to like the scalloped focus rings and build quality of these old lens. Thanks to Reagan as I would have missed it if he didn't provide the link.
Love the Bokeh t-shirt, great find.
Samy, love the moon shot. It's been cloudy here at night so not much chance of getting a good shot.with the v1, yet.
Wasn't me depleting the KEH inventory
Moon with the 500 F4P + TC-301. This was with the Gitzo tripod/ballhead focused in live view. I don't have a remote for the D800 so I set the timer (I believe its at 10s), and I could definitely see the image settle down in live view within those 10 seconds.
Thanks Georg, that sounds like a fun lens to try on it, I should also try the 80-400VR on it (SHhhhhhhhhh) All I can think of with your Swedish artist is "Don't Sneeze!"
Laura, impressive detail on the wine bottle taken with the 50/1.2 on the V1!
I'm still learning on how to use this camera properly, but at least some of my early results are promising (this is strictly confidential, because it doesn't belong to this thread, but I've had a blast with the V1 on my AF-S 200/2 ;-).
Welcome, Paul, and that's an impressive list you have there I shoot with FX, DX, and CX. Glad you introduced yourself Look for the focus confirmation dot, but at 1.2 you're going to have a razor thing margin of error there.
I am relatively new on this forum - lurking for a couple of months, I suppose. I am enjoying the opportunity to learn from everyone here - very friendly community it seems. I have decided to break silence and comment on your four photographs - what can I say . . . amazing - this is what I aspire to. I have several manual focus lenses that I use with a D7000, but I really struggle with getting the focus right as you have done in these with the difficult 55mm f/1.2 lens at wide open apertures. These images inspire me to keep trying . . .
