Here are the results from my Frankenstein 105P. The ultimate spring test F22 vs F2.5 I am thrilled!



The 105 2.5s have the most beatiful bokeh. Did you mix elements or swapped the whole insides?

OK, cropped out the vent and updated the initial post I did... The wall should be green, not yellow...is it showing yellow to anyone else?

Sorry for the long post, hope the gaiety and detailed beauty of the costumes and the dancers will make it worthwhile.
I normally do not post process many photos, but when you take 400 or so D800 shots at iso 3200 you are setting your self up for a lot of work, deleting, adjusting color balance, noise, exposure, contrast, crop, leveling, and it takes hours and hours. I am sure there are faster ways, I use NX2 not for being cheap but 'cause it does everything I want to do to a photograph.

Stop the whining, here is a few more teasers. I was there with approval from the organizer but when you show up with two cameras and lenses, the staff lets you right in.

The 50-300 on a tripod commands events, I did not wish for autofocus except for the Irish dancers, their dance is flying all over the place and it was hard to follow. Exposure was the real challenge, big changes in light intensity and distribution all the time.

At 3200, the D800 is very bad for noise at the pixel level, but with excellent color, and it is true, at smaller sizes the noise is not noticeable. Considering the time spent in post processing a D3, D3s, or D4 is a much better camera for this. The results may be a bit better from the D800.

A real plus of this lens is that it focuses dead on with the indicator light, no backfocus. Quality is best at 300mm and good everywhere. Focusing at the 50mm end is actually harder than at 300mm, the whole heavy front rotates but very smoothly.

All photos at full aperture.

Amazing what hat 50-300 mm lens can do Rafael. Wonderful set of images. Very well done!

And Ray, that old lens is definitely a winner. I was delighted when I first saw what my copy of the lens could do. The bokeh wide open is pure butter. Some folks may not like that, but I surely do.

Georg, I love the two shots with everyone's favorite fisheye. You definitely used it to advantage here. And, as always, excellent conversions. You may yet convince me that I need a copy of Silver Efex Pro II.

Wonderful to see you work on the thread Philippe, as always. I guess you have FOUR MF Nikkors in your kit now. Pretty sweet. The 50 f/1.8 is a little gem.

Thank you all for the comments:
Kevin I like that crop a lot better, good work
Rafael these shots are amazing! Really nice work!
I only swapped the aperture ring and lens mount between the two lenses.

I'll drop one photo on the thread before heading off to bed. I was surprised to see these white blossoms open with winter still at hand. Of course, the warm days we've been experiencing surely has the plants thinking spring has arrived. This was shot at f/2.8 with the 135 f/2 AI-s.

Beautiful Curtis. Spot on metering which has always been your trademark and the colors really pop. The detail in the whites is such a challenge and again the master is at work!

My friend Natosha is back in town for a little while and was kind enough to come over for a shoot. It was beautiful outside after the storm rolled through, so we took advantage of the nice weather.

#1 and #4 were shot with the 105mm 1.8 and #2 and #3 were shot with the 55mm 1.2.

Strobist Info (Shots 2-4): SB-900 fired into silver reflective umbrella and triggered by Yongnuo 603s.

Tony, I like the first and last one the best. Very pretty woman
Ronny, Great composition. But why is she in a short sleeve shirt in the snow?
The black background,white snow and grey statue really bring out the color in her
