Phillippe - finally!!! finally!!!! - there I am constantly shooting the Opera House or the harbour bridge (and you calling them banal) so I thought we'd never get a pic of the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur, the Champs Elysees. I assumed you eschewed tourist snaps....but all I can say is....finally!! .........and thank you......thank you.

I love these. LOVE them. Especially the first one. The light is so perfect on the woman in the foreground it almost looks like you used a flash. And the composition and the strong contrasts give the streetscape an amazing 3D effect. I would never have guessed

Thanks Ben.
Actually I never go to the Champs but I had an apppointment there and a few minutes for shooting before an other appointment in La Defense (#3 & # 4 in the 1st set).

Yep I was close enough to hear what she was saying but she is a french girl and a french girl never call the police when a guy like me is too close to her -)

Do you want shots of the Eiffel Tower ? Well I will do my best even if I hate that ugly monument-)

Have a nice day!

John, this looks like a very nice trio. I am curious how you find the 135 3.5 and 2.8 for sharpness, and how they perform against the 105 2.5.
Scott


John, me too. I'm contemplating an AiS 2.8 and wonder about it's peformance.

Look what showed up on my doorstep this afternoon. The final part of the 135mm trio - the 135/3.5 AIS (left).

Hopefully the weather will cooperate this weekend to give the f/3.5 a spin on the D800.

John


And what about the E Series lens? I just had a minty one CLA'd and, except for looking kinda' skinny on a D700, it seems to be a very nice lens. From a quick test in the parking lot of the shop, it's sharp at portrait distance with great color and contrast and nice bokeh too.

cheers,
Steven

Ohh, now that's quite a task! B&W works very well for images in the stable.

Ben, I've tried PTGui again (for the same pano) and it worked flawless. I'm just lost in the various options.
A fellow photographer who shoots a lot of critical interiors swears by PTGui - maybe I'll give it another try when I finally do some critical work ;-)
The Noblex will be a dream for the next time - no additional analogue-cameras until I have set up a proper wet darkroom...

Had a chance to try my new 20mm f3.5 AI - vintage toy day all around here, as my son and I took our 1970s slot cars for a spin. Love the lens already; it's been on my wish list since the film days.

20mm f3.5 iso 800 on D600, handheld













with K1 extension ring, iso 100 at f11, tripod, about 5 sec exposure - something from the days when toys didn't have to be politically correct. Love what a less than 1/4 inch extension tube can do for a wide angle - marcro with depth of field. Distance from front element of lens to object was about 2 inches.

Leighton - that is so cute.

Monty - welcome back. It's been too long. Not sure if it's possible but Higgs is even cuter than Leighton's lambs.

Fooled around with the 135/3.5 last night and today. It is sharp wide open as you can see from the 100% crop of my daughter's eye.

Unfortunately this copy seems to be decentered as the top right is pretty blurry at all apertures and the lower right as well (though not as bad). My 135/2 & 135/2.8 both have equal sharpness in all corners at all apertures, so it's not my camera mount.

First shots of my daughter using flash and wide open indoors. This copy is going back and I'll be on the look out for another.

The weather here has been pretty poor down near the ocean (up in the mountains it's been spectacular I'm told), so this is as good as I can do today.

135/2 AIS wide open. Hand held. Curves played with a bit with some mild sharpening in CS6.

Scott - the corn field looks as cols as you said it was...brrr. Lovely light.

Kevin - you're gonna love that lens! NIce example of its abilities

Chuong - those are really sharp

Leighton - like the lambs - really cute when they're that small

Peterb - very good use of the 20mm to show off what was clearly a serious pastime

Monty - an excellent picture but I hate the subject. In my book graffiti doesn't qualify as art but as vandalism and the "artist" shows his total lack of respect for other people - sorry

- I do love your dog though!

John - very nice moody image - I hope the gloom has nothing to do with the grounding of the Dreamliner!

Nikki's other sister....
I have a K 85/1.8 (Ai'd) # 421152 that's available for the cost of shipping.
It's got fungus, dust and dry focus, also original hood and leather case, generic caps.
Cosmetically, I'd say an 8. No scratches or rubs on the glass.
It differs from the HC version mostly in appearance, it seems. It looks like an Ai lens:

Also an Ai-S 50/1.4 in similar condition available. If anyone is interested, please PM me.

cheers,

Hi Steven,

Be careful Leighton or you'll end up with a pair of house pet sheep.
I see you've had a couple of pairs of triplets too, those Suffolk's are great at multiple births for sure but I think you are even above the average.

Have all the lamb landed now?

Nice one Monty. And a very cute pic of the particle. I hope though that Rocky isn't feeling left out of your pics, he's still cute too!

Thanks Philippe, Georg, Ben, Peter and Mark. Much appreciated.

Mark, we've had lambs in the house by the woodstove for a couple of days before when it's real cold outside. We have 1 more ewe to go!
