welcome back Leighton. I was starting to worry. Hope things don't get so busy that you can't stop by and chat for 3 or 4 pages...lol.

Jed on the job - that says it all.

So....I'll ask again - where's Curtis? How will I work out which lens to buy next ?

What don't you have Ben?

Thank you Leighton and Georg, it took many years to pull it together, bought it all used, luckily MF prices took a big dip in cost in the 90's and 00's. An unfortunate side of our sharing the enjoyment of MF Nikkors is that the prices now just keep rising, although bargains can still be found.
Nikon should make an F2 Digital, the counter to the M9 in reflex design, no AF, minimal electronics to make an FX Sensor work, Split prism focusing - $3K price, it would sell like F2's.

that's lovely Rafael.

And I agree about a digital F2 - there must be a reason they don't do it. Maybe they don't want to cannibalise their DSLR range , or maybe they don't do it because Canon haven't. Whatever the reason - they must realise that smaller and lighter is the way to go. The Sony RX1 may start a trend.

The samples are from the 28mm 2.0 ais, I own three: the ais. an NC and an N, the N I ruined in a botched ai conversion. The NC has the same center sharpness as the ais but the corners are softer, overall very similar rendering, much better looking barrel with the knurled focus ring that tapers to the tip. Here are the lenses on an F2 and a Nikomat FTN, note the F2 is smaller. (Taken with 180mm 2.8 ai, and 35mm 1.4 ais on D3)

If they ever came out with a camera such as this, I wouldn't be able to help myself! I had a F3 in 1984, it was probably my favorite camera.

Great series, brings back great memories. My wife and I stayed in Paris on our honeymoon. Place Montmartre was our favorite place there.

Thanks Philippe.

Here's one from this morning. Jed on the job in the barn. Taken with the 50mm f1.2 AI-s.

Thanks Ben, at least the pace of pages being added slowed a bit.

Curtis is probably busy with his volunteer work, the man is a saint.

ha ha - very funny Rafael. Bit rich coming from you - who's just posted all that gear porn - but I haven't got that much gear (who am I kidding). It's OK when you're buying pre-ai nikkors for under $100 but blloody Phillippe's driving me to buy more Zeiss - now that's serious money.

Here's a shot of part of the village I live near. It once was a thriving town, back in the 1800's.

Leighton - I thought it was semi-rural, but those houses seem very close together? How far is that from where the market is?

A lot to go trough again this weekend very inspirational. I have not had time to shoot much myself once again. I can't wait for the year to be over and things to slow down a little at work.
Here are a few from yesterday.

Ben, the houses you see are in the village, which we are right out side of, but within walking distance. There's around 213 people that live there. We are 12 miles south of where the market is located in the city of Staunton, which has a population of between 25,000 and 30,000. It is VERY rural around here with farmland all around us.

Thanks Ray! Looks like that 35mm is living on your D7000. Nice flowers and thanks for bringing some color into a rather brown looking world here at the moment.

Grey and wet around here, a couple from the card download today, probably collected over a one week span. Continued good work everyone, enjoy looking at the slices of life around the world.

Welcome to the Particle, nice shot Monty.
Phillipe, applause again at the street photography pics
aRod, continued well wishes for your family and daughter
"Leighton in Paris" put a big smile on my face!
Georg, your work continues to inspire, I esp like the "quick snap on the way to the car"
Jorge "Money for Beer" is a blast
