Just a few shots of two of my nutball cats, Bear and Sourpatch. Myrphee was too regal to join in on the shoot. All shot with the 55mm 1.2.

Thanks for the comment Tony. I like the images of Sourpatch. Nice looking cat.

I finally got a chance to go out and shoot a bit with my new 16. I think we are going to get along just fine.

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.

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.


Now that's cool! It's been a while since we've had a run of rust pictures!

John - Jose called your mountain shots "jaw dropping" - so right. You've really captured that sense of the crisp brilliant air.

Reagan - don't encourage Phillippe - it's killing me. I spoke to my local delaer and we're working on a deal. He's going to let me use the 24 next week (he's good like that cause he figures I won't be able to resist) and he's buying 3 of my AF lenses and my Fuji XE1 (which I only got a few weeks ago). But I may still have to kick in.


all the best in 2013 everyone

Thanks Georg, Philippe, Jeff, Scott, Ray and John for the comments.

Ben, happy New Year, I think you is already some hours in 2013. Here we nee some 7h more

Georg, I am no "expert" on the TC16A, just intrigued as this little and overlooked piece of glass performs so well; though at FX bodies borders can suffer, at DX no problem and the center is very good.

Scott, I think both 55/2.8 and 105/2.8 are good at macro and at infinity.
My feelings/experiences (at least with my copies: two 55/2.8, one 55/3.5 and 2 105/2.8) revealed that in general the 55s are a little bit sharper and have almost no CA when compared to the 105/2.8. But the 105 micro is no slouch, far from that, and I was surprised with test results against the legendary 105/2.5:

+1 my personal fav is the last one - the framing with the "tails" in the foreground is stellar.
