Last weekend with Nikki before she heads to Ray. A couple from morning chore time. The Sunrise wasn't very pretty, but the alpen glow sure was!

Nice series with Nikki Leighton. I especially like the second image.

Here is one taken last week with the 105 2.5 at f4 (John you looking ).

Blasphemous!!!



yeah blasphemy John. And as Curtis isn't here - let me say - I agree. It's a wonderful lens. Very sharp - great colour too, and as you say - very small and light for a 90.

Very nice Philippe! Great composition with the boy coming off the bridge.

+1
Phillippe - how close were you to that boy ? - no wonder he's looking down - that 24's a big lens.
Georg - sensational shots - the first one reminds me of an illustration from a children's fairy tale.
Leighton - nice to see nikki's inspired you to go "portrait" mode.

Some from St Gallen from a couple of weeks ago. A miserable day outside so these are all from the cathedral of the Abby of St Gall. There is a bell in the cathedral that dated from 700AD and is one of the oldest bells in Europe. It was brought to St Gallen from Ireland in the 8th Century by a monk who went there to visit - Yes, this old Bell is really just a tacky souvenir, probably has written on it "My Saint went to Ireland and all he brought back was this stupid bell".

All the photos were taken with the 105mm f2.5

Yes, yes, blasphemous it is. The 105/2.5 AIS is not going away any time soon - it's still 105mm and it's f/2.5.
I have a 135/2.8AIS on the way and a 135/3.5 AI or AIS soon and we'll see how those guys do.

I don find that sometimes I pick a lens to take based on the ability to post images in this thread as opposed to the much less personable Landscape, Best Nikon Images, etc. threads.

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).


Mihai, user Mishu01, posted some shots way long ago with a D800 and 28/2. You might PM him too.

Sam and Mike, welcome! Some very nice shots.

Georg, nice set there. I really like the first.

Philippe, your work with the PC lenses just keeps getting better.

Leighton, everything looks beautiful enough there to make the morning chores a pleasure.

Snow and sun - hurray! I've shot this with the lens stuck in a railing and could kick myself for cutting off the lower part of the jetty :-(
D3s, 28/3.5PC at f/11


I know it's already been seen a bunch of times, but it's worth it. I've see a lot of wonderful images in the past few pages, this one tops it for me!! Excellent work Georg.

And now for some other pictures that caught my attention...

Phillipe again with the PCE at the bridge, just wonderful use of the PCE lens, engaging the viewer while being artistic.

Nice alpenglow capture, Leighton.

Mike and the Corona capture - another wow!

Kevin, I really like the white building against the vast blue sky expanse.

Went for a short outing with a couple of friends. First picture is nothing special, but provides context. The rest were fun to capture.

It happens. I don't own the 35/1.4 AI-S even though it is probably my favorite MF Nikkor as I had more suitable needs for my kit. I certainly expect the day to come when most of shooting happens with bodies and lenses with the labels Mamiya, Fuji, Leica, and Zeiss ZM. I'll never sell all of my MF Nikkors (or all of my Nikon bodies) as there is so much to be said for the vibrant, welcoming community of people here in this thread. Here is to hoping that Nikon does something innovative and not iterative in the future of the mirrorless segment soon so that I can have a nice Nikon mirrorless body for posting in this thread. As great as the V1 is for less than $300, super long lenses, poor low light imaging, and massive DOF aren't exactly my cup of tea.

I haven't posted in here in a while due to being too busy to take pictures. I picked up a 135mm F3.5 Ai-S for $45 the other day. I took this one more as a candid while my fiancÚ was putting her had up, but its a great lens, especially for $45.

Tried some reverse macro shots with the Series E 28mm. I want to say these were all taken at f/22, ISO100. Also, these are NOT cropped at all. I will post a shot later of the aperture numbers on the 80-200. They take up half the height horizontally of the frame.
