A handheld natural, and in door light photo, using My Nikon D700, Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 AIS manual focus lens, and bokeh via Christmas lights! xD

Fairly busy here tonight at work. Just a quick shot while doing a press check. Shot with the 105mm ƒ1.8.

Rafael - Gorgeous sky and colors with the 35. That is an INSANE setup on that 400!
Americo - Very nice bokeh play. That is definitely the right lens for it!

Someone asked what I used to stitch my building... I usually us Photoshop CS5.5, but I have CS6 at work and used that on lunch. I didn't do anything else with the pic, pretty much out of the camera.

That would be me. Do you try and adjust the perspective before stitching? If you are shooting RAW, I know that you can apply a lens profile first. Since these MF lenses don't have profiles, I typically use a comparable focal length and that gets me in the ballpark and then I adjust the sliders manually if I need to.

Thank you very much! I wish i spread the layout better, however, i was very pressed for time, plus my wife wanted our family room aka my makeshift photo studio swept ,so, needless to say, I had to cut it short, and get ta sweeping! xD

Took this on a quick break at work. Using my new-to-me Series E 28mm f/2.8. About a 20% crop, ISO200, f/5.6. Lens is a little hard to work with for me, but I think I will get used to it.

Ben: Those are easily your best panos I've seen, honest. Especially the second. So I guess the purchase is sealed then...?
How'd you drop one anyway? And it was easy to do shift panos, even with tilt. I've tried them handheld too. Here's an oldie of the Brissy skyline, with 3 shots in portrait mode - left 8mm, center, right 8mm then stitch (the extreme ends will be fuzzy so don't shift to the max 11mm). And yes, in colour

Thanks Ronny, Tony R and Ray (Ohio).

Tony and Ray, I am just playing the role of devil's adjutant, since the devil himself is absent lately

Ronny and Philippe, spetacular portraits;

Rafael, what magical clouds with the 35/1.4, and impressive results with the 400/3.5 + 2 TCs (!!!).

Rufous-bellied Thrush eating palm tree fruit with Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K ai'd wide open:


Rufous-bellied Thrush eating palm tree fruit with Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K ai'd wide open. by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K (ai'd) ED non IF, ~10m of distance.
ISO 800, wide open at 1/200s, hand held, but supported on a windowsill; ~15% crop.
Unfortunately, as this is an invasive palm tree, these native birds effectively play the role of dispersers of the seeds.
Indeed this is a subadult that have learned the lesson with its parents.

May I ask your pardon for sharing one more informal test with the 50-135mm at 135mm?
I promise this will be the last one.
Just to show how impressive this zoom appears to be.
Though not a scientific and rigorous test (ISOs and shutter speeds were different), I used the same light conditions (cloudy day), same f/11 and same PP.

Another trivial image, a ground view from my office window (~15m above).

The first is a view with the zoom at 135mm:

Well Jose, I believe you've become more of an advocate then I on the 50-135mm! Hard to dispute this testing of yours. What I'd like, is to find one in new condition.

Thanks Leighton.
My copy is near mint, but suffers from zoom creep and has some dust spots inside. Have you managed to fix the zoom creep?

Lots of great photos in the last couple of days. And thanks everyone for the comments on my shots.

Started my first classes yesterday and realized that round is not the shape to be, lots of walking on campus. It should at least help me get going on losing what I need to lose Need to figure out what I can carry in my backpack along with all the books, since I have all four classes to go to on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Hope Leighton got to see that sunrise I saw yesterday morning, and got a shot of it. Now to go back to the bookstore and return a book, I can use a previous edition someone gave me, putting $158 back in my pocket.

No, I just use it like it is. I did however add some tape to the barrel of my 80-200mm to help it out. It works, sort of. I've heard of some that take them apart and buy felt to replace what's in there. I'm not sure if it's worth it though.
