These were taken at the same distance (~2m), the first with the "168mm f/4.5 Micro Nikkor", and the second with the 300mm f/4.5 EDIF + PN-11 tube.

I am starting to like the 300/4.5 EDIF as a close up lens. No surprise John Shaw praises this lens with tubes in his book about close up photography.

Jose, stunning "flower-portraits"! I'm not ready to pick a fav - I like both;-)

Philippe, beautiful scenery! Btw, how is the 24 PC-E in terms of distortion? The 28/3.5 is a bit challenged in this department.

Philippe, Ronny, Jose - thank you!

Here's an old summerly shot, discovered while searching for another picture:

105/2.5 Ai'd at f/4 on a D700 - the oldtime-Nikkor makes a nice lens for ship-portraits;-)

Thanks Ronny!

I have it but for just 2 months.

This is the only flower (+ down feather) I captured last month.


Down feather + flower with Nikkor 135mm f/2 ais + TC16A by labecoaves, on Flickr

One of the first test shots with this combo - MF 135mm f/2 + TC16A (= 216mm f/3.2).
With a D7000 (1.5x DX crop) this combo gives a 324mm f/3.2 lens with reasonable close up capability.
ISO 320, f/3.2 at 1/250s hand held. ~ 25% crop.


Curtis has posted on this thread some great flower shots with the 135/2 + tubes. But I don't know how to locate them. Perhaps Curtis can read your asking and repost some flowers with this lens.

I don't know, Georg, sorry. Actually I don't worry about distortion and I never read review

btw, very nice shot with the 105!

+1 - Sometimes I will dig deeper into the TC-16A-theme, great to have an expert here;-)

Thanks and thanks, Philippe! I've tried to deepen the blacks a bit, inspired by your work.

The other day, my wife was trying to eat a cookie, minding her own business.

Now, normally when Sandwhich takes an interest in human food, it amounts to her licking the salt off of McDonalds fries. This time, she was determined to take the entire cookie away from Sabena, and she even swatted at her (with claws) when she was denied.

I'm not sure what was in the cookie to make her behave this way...they were brought in by a co-worker...could be anything I suppose.

28/2 @f2, D700 @ 12800.

Hi gang. I've been pretty tied-up with family and some work, but just had a chance to look at the great images posted on the thread over the past week.

John, love your cat on the stairs shot and "Straight Up" is gorgeous.

Rafael, I'm not usually a fan of fisheyes, but your photo from Balboa Park is wonderful. Well done!

Leighton, beautiful landscapes and the post shot with the snow and ice on top is excellent.

Mark, I really like your sky photos.

Philippe, love the tripod shot of the ornate lamp post and surroundings. C'est très formidable!

John, nice shots with the 55mm micro.

Anthony, beautiful dog!

Ray, great shots of Billy Ocean.

Scott, love the snowy church shots.

Tony, beautiful landscape pano.

Georg, I saw the birch bark photo on the weekly assignment thread. Wonderful subtle patterns. Good luck! The church door with the 28mm PC is gorgeous both ways.

Chin, great guitar shots!

Tony, a very nice photo of a really interesting museum building.

Ian, very cool shots indeed!

Reagan, the "Monster Caddy" is a classic!

Ray, beautiful snow shots.

Philip, I really like "LSPU steps."

Jose, "Rusty Chains" and the dragonfly are great photos.

Ronny, "Slightly Rusty" is a really nice shot.

Monty, "Me and the icicles" is very cool!

Peter, congrats on the photo of your Kodachrome image. Looking at that made me realize that I should try harder.

During my vacations I experimented with the 105mm f/2.8 micro Nikkor + TC16 A (= "micro-Nikkor 168mm f/4.5").

One of the first images was this rusty stuff

Even at f/11 this combo delivers a thin DOF.



Jose, thank you for the comments. I like your rust shot here. How do you find the 105 2.8 micro vs the 55 2.8 micro close-up and at distance?

Leighton, sorry to hear about your cardreader-trouble. I have no clue about internal readers and still use an old Sandisk-branded one that is pretty fast with high-speed-cards.

Here's the church-door in color just for you ;-)

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8224/8326752916_f42cafb1be_o.jpg
I'm not really happy with this shot and play with other ones from this short series (all handheld)



George, I like this a lot! I prefer the color version because of the richness of the brick colors.

Thanks for the comments.

Took the D800 and my 16/3.5, 50/1.8G, and 100/2.8 Series E out hiking in the snow this morning. None of the 50/1.8G images made the cut, but got some good ones from the MF lenses:

http://hinkey.zenfolio.com/p864272471

Zenfolio seems to clobber the sharpness in slideshow mode.

I got some of my breath on the front of the 16/3.5 and after that it seemed to show more ghosting than usual with the sun in the frame.

Here's some samples -



John, nice series of images. I especially like the last two. Very sharp and detailed.
