Chris, very nice and very atmospheric shot. The typical German winter days are pretty similar in overall appearance.

got a new toy - the nikon 35mm f2 OC

My local camera shop rang me and asked if I'd be interested. He's never done that before. I told him I was a bit over photography at the moment - but he knows Im a sucker for these scalloped aperture ring lenses. I'd never heard of the 35mm f2 OC - but as I have HC, PC, NC, and SC - I figured I might as well go for OC.

Congrats on the "new" lens Ben. I did not realize there are so many variations of this lens. The self-portrait shot with your reflection in both mirrors is very nice.

Seth/Ian, I had never heard about the Douglas A70 (Boston/Havoc), if that's what this is. This from wikipedia..

**
The Douglas A-20/DB-7 Havoc was a family of American attack, light bomber and night fighter aircraft of World War II, that served with several Allied air forces, principally those of the Soviet Union, United Kingdom, and United States. The DB-7 was also used by the air forces of Australia, South Africa, France, and the Netherlands during the war, and Brazil afterwards. The bomber aircraft was known as Boston among British and Commonwealth air forces, while the Royal Air Force night fighter variants were

Samy, going to the Air and Space Museum armed with MF lenses would be a lot of fun. Certainly a "target rich" environment!

The B&W is a classic. Honesty is the best policy.

Looks nice! Especially for a Sinterklaas visit! In North America (well, certainly in Canada, and I guess the northern half of the USA) we want to have a "white" Christmas (see/listen to: "White Christmas," the classic seasonal tune from the 1940s). Do the dutch have the same?

I hope this thread is ok about Nikkor MF lenses on MF Nikons? I just had the awful thought that it might be for MF on Digital only - will check. Ah, just jumped back two thousand three hundred and something pages (!) and I see from Curtis' first post that film cameras are Ok.


Seth, definitely keep posting your film work. I post film from an FM2 and F100 with MF Nikkors as often as I can get it developed and scanned.

@Reagan, I got it.

@Jorge, beer is good. I prefer the B&W. The red lights were a bit distracting for me in the color version. Both are nice though.

@Americo, provided a career change and increased financial liberty, I would roll with the following system:
Leica M6TTL .58 + Summicron 35/2 ASPH
Leica M6TTL .72 + ZM 50/2 Planar
And probably some sort of compact mirrorless with a fast 35 and 50 and maybe a zoom since my wife (and I) like the instant availability of digital files. If I really had more dollars than sense, I'd keep my 4 favorite MF Nikkors (28/2, 50/1.2, 105/2.5, 180/2.8) too as they are just plain fun and will never break. As it is, I won't let go of my Nikkors because I have a great comfort level with the system and mirrorless hasn't quite reached the ability to rival the performance of my Nikon DSLR system.

Thanks Georg
I like the German winters much better. It's more a real winter. I lived for 4 years (ages ago) near Minden and that were real winters with lots of snow and cold (and of course the inconvenience )

Thanks Phillip.
Sinterklaas is already back to Spain (December 5th). Santa is coming now.
Most Dutch would like to have a "white" Christmas as well with a lot of ice (scating) but most of the times it's a wet Christmas.

I like your selfportraits Ben, but the old 35 shining on the D800E is a beauty too

thanks Scott - you're always very generous. And Paul.

No I didn't realise either. I googled it after I bought it - turns out there was a O and an OC version - bit like all those 85mm f1.8 Hs and HCs or the 50 1.4 S and SCs. I was lucky he was selling the C versions with the latest coatings.

The dual reflections were dumb luck - I was really more interested in the Ducati - but I didn't realise how shallow the DOF is wide open - so the bike's not in focus. I thought - it's a

Some 24mm f2.8 ais shots of a local plant we call the "money plant". The plant probably grows everywhere...might be interesting to hear the different names it is known by. Pardon the metadata pointing to the 24mm f2.0...I should have updated the non-cpu data info. BTW...how many lenses can we enter? I seem to have run out of slots.

A reversed image showing how the seed attaches to the "money".






Not reversed this time, but a severely cropped frame showing the sharpness, and scale of the money plant seed.

Great shots James with another lens that never get's a lot of praise. You can enter 9 lenses but you should start chipping any AI-S ones that you can. That reason alone makes it so nice to mount them and not have to worry about fooling around changing all that lens garbage
