Jake the Dog - 50 mm f1.2 AIS wide open







Sam, welcome to you as well, and what a lovely dog. Two new people in a row, I'm not sure that's happened before.

Ditto to what I just said to Mike!

Some more lunch time shots with the Series E 28mm f/2.8

Nailing focus is difficult with this lens, but I am figuring it out.

Ray, nice panoramic view with 16mm. All the best to your mom;

Georg, what a "surreal" diver!

Mike, awesome aurora and corona borealis!

Sam, great dog portrait;

John, loved the 400/ED landscape and the rusty stuff is spetacular.

Thanks Leighton, Georg, Scott, Ray, Laura and Ben for your comments on my Bregenz pics.

Soma amazing shots in the last couple of days however Ray and Americo, firstly I wish your family well and strength to recover quickly. I am glad you have both had a moment still to share your nice work.

Peter, I like your set from the food market, I wish I could find biltong here.
Tony - wonderful set with Nikki, especially the last one of the glass, the blue "reeds"
Chuong - great piece of your daughter, Rapunzel.
Georg - brilliant of the diver, especially with the metal background. That is some serious diving equipment for cold water.
Paul - I really like your last set, especially the portrait aspect shot of the clouds over the church.
Kevin - great to see someone else putting the 28mm Series E through it's paces. I like the output of the lens but struggle also with using it. Your shot of the building with it is pure class.
John - As always 2 stunning shots of such different subjects.
Mike & Sam - welcome to the thread. Sam, Dog shots as nice as yours will always get a warm welcome from the people here, his or her expression is priceless.
Mike - You are only increasing my desire for the wonderful noct lens. A couple of amazing shots of some of natures best artwork. Oh to own a noct, and live where it gets dark at night.

Kevin, your roof-detail is really great! Love the colors, your choice of framing, the light - good job

Mike, welcome and thanks for sharing your breathtaking Aurora-pictures!

Sam, welcome! I like your excellent shallow-DoF-dog-portraits a lot.

John, love the long-distance landscape. The rust looks pretty good too ;-)

Americo, very nice bokeh-play!

Kenny, I just can't see enough meerkat-pictures! Well done portraits - thanks for sharing your film-shots.

Scott, Peter, Leighton, Jose and Mark - thanks for taking the time to comment on the diver (or the vintage fishing gear, Peter).
The flare on the diver shot looks a bit pale in my B&W-conversion, but I think I'll leave the image as it is.

I'm looking to replace my 28mm f/3.5 ai-s for landscape work on a D800E; field curvature is too severe, even stopped down to f/8-11. I'm trying to decide if a 28 f/2.0 will work for me but I'm having a hard time finding any examples of the edges stopped down. Can anyone who owns this lens post an image that gives a clear indication of corner performance at f/8 with a close foreground (field curvature on the 3.5 is only a problem on shots where the foreground is only a few feet away).

Welcome to FM! This thread is for sure a good place to ask.
Rafael ("rafaelcasd") has - as far as I know - a D800 and a 28/2 Ais. Maybe he can answer your question or post some shots. In my experience (with 12MP-DSLRs) field curvature is not very dramatic on the 28/2, but I shoot at close range and from f/2 to f/4 most of the time.
Best of luck, Georg.
