As my wife and I like to say Curtis, we only have so many years to have children so we'll have them while we can! It will be good for Eli to have a playmate so soon!


You know what they say..."you got to make hay while the sun shines" ! Love the shots, I like the socks the best.

Ray, I like the mood of the truck-shot. The framing is very nice, the low contrast and blueish cast make the cold palpable.

Alan, congrats to Nikki and you! The pictures illustrating the news are beautiful - and the clothes-line-image funny too.
I've never used the legendary Pentax 67 nor the Mamiya 645 - I hope to find some of your pictures taken with the 67 over at the alternate corner soon;-)

Peter, that's a beautiful set! My personal fav is the second shot - very nice and almost classical B&W.

Adam, thanks for sharing the informations about the trail-lights-shot. During similar shoots I've had police- or ambulance-cars in the traffic - the blue lights left strange pulsating trails ;-)

Reagan, Leighton, Peter and Ray - I'm glad you guys liked the "Cowboy next to his horse"!

Speaking of horses and the 180/2.8ED - here are two shots from today:

Thanks for the input guys! I am going to try for a very clean D700. Second up would be a new D300s. Staying away from the D600, due to highly publicized issues, etc.

Got the Canon stuff in the mail to the buyer, so this will go down next week.

BTW, what is the MF zoom lens of preference here? I see a lot of images with zooms. Just short to mid focal reange, for me, in the case of a walk around lens (hate that cliche).

Most everyone on here know's that I LOVE the 50-135mm f3.5 AI-s. I rave about it often. The other one in that range is the 80-200mm AI f4.5 with the square plate on the back. They both are very sharp for zooms, but I like the IQ of the 50-135 better, which pairs well with the 28-50 f3.5 AI-s. Keep in mind that both of these will probably have a loose zoom/focus ring, but don't let that deter you from getting one.

Or you could get one of these dirt cheap non rectangular baffle types but then you would have to put up with dull photos. 80-200 4.5 C Auto. Just messing with you Leighton.

I finished my Frankenstein of the two 105mm 2.5P lenses. I had one with a chewed up focus ring and one with fungus. The plan was to take the focus ring off one and place it on the other. I had my friend cut the ring to specs because there was no factory replacement ring available. I then had to put the lenses back together. If you attempt this with a scalloped lens I can tell you that the greatest challenge is the little spring that works the aperture. Patience and a steady hand is required. Be sure NOT to stretch the spring and take it off very carefully. Replacing it is no easy feat either.





The finished project

Thank you Reagan, Curtis, Peter, and Leighton for the comments.

Peter, the 28-50 does render a fairly shallow depth of field wide open. I did crop this image in a small amount which might help as well. I like the second image in your series.

Leighton, I like using the 28-50 in cold snowy weather so I do not have to make lens changes between 28mm and 50mm primes in the field. It is a sweet little lens.

Georg, really like the gable end of the roof in the snow. The horse head shapes are very novel.

Very cool Ray, you could start a cottage industry to do lens mods for all of us!

You're right Scott, it is a sweet little lens. The only thing I find that makes a mark against it is that it vignettes a little on the wide end opened up on a FF. I didn't notice it when I had it on my D7000. Other than that I like it. I also like the hokey micro setting, comes in handy sometimes. I know this is blasphemous, but this lens, combined with the 50-135mm makes a nice little travel kit.
