Philippe, nice image of the skaters. Judging from the snow on her knees, she had taken a spill or two.

Rafael, good comparison of the 18 and 20mm Nikkors. The 20mm 3.5 Ai is my "wide angle" workhorse on my D7000 unless I use my DX lens. I find it gives me great results stopped down for landscape work.

Jose, thank you for the comment. Interesting comparison of what the cpl will do.

Ray, great start with Nikki. Wonderful flower images.

Samy, welcome back. The hawk does look a bit double jointed.

Great shot Ben! Maybe you will have more luck with them when you call them mannequins instead of dummies

Did you AI convert yours or was it a factory conversion?

Do you use it much?

John, found a factory ai ring in e-bay, and I don't use it much. It would get a lot more use if my cameras were smaller.

Thanks Jose! Those are amazing results - and the "not recommended" even looks good (just missed focus). I tried some close work with the TC last night. Well, see how this shakes out. I already have a 1.4x TC (an AF universal version by Tamron) that seems to produce identical results up close. The loaner is considering trading me for a gimbal tripod head.

James, this TC is the only which will fit in 200mm or smaller Nikkor focal lenghts. I have some samples shots:

Nice flower shots with Nikki, Ray.

I find myself reaching for the 28-50mm f3.5 AIS a lot. I like this little lens. Here is one with it.

Sam - nice snow - that looks like an expensive antenna (e?) too. Are you a radio ham also?

Phillippe - nice job with the PCE

Rafael - nice shot of the "desert garden"

Jose - the 14a looks like the one to get as there is nothing wrong with the image quality on the longer lenses - on the 800 it is astonishing. Excellent shots as always. The sunset is also fantastic.

Ray - the journey continues with another climate and beautiful images!

Samy - the hawk is excellent with such a short lens on FX

Chuong - nice pic of Mom and son!

Georg - is that an electrical plug?

Thanks folks. Georg, glad you haven't forgotten the Heinkel assignment

Trying to look through the pages I missed and don't know which one to start from Jose looks like you could get quite a decent image of the space station if it passes above you, with your setup! Americo, cool bokeh clouds around Luna!

I was part of the time in India and did a quick trip to Sultanpur national park near the capital. Only the 180 2.8 AIS with me and here's a heavy crop of a painted stork in flight.

I know what you mean about this little gem. So far, the only downside I see with it on FF is a little vignetting at the wide end which goes away when you stop it down a bit. Oh, and it doesn't focus as close as the 28mm f2.8, BUT has a nifty little micro setting on the 50mm side of things.
