Hi. Back again.

My D700 has shipped and will arrive tomorrow. Thankfully, it will be a sunny, low assignment day, so I will be able to get out after I charge the battery!

I have the following lenses: 28 2.8ais, 50 1.2ais, 85 2 ai, 105 2.5ais. I was thinking of the 135 2.8ais, but realize that I have absolutely no AF lenses to fit this camera, and no zooms. I got a little better than expected on the sale for my Canon stuff, so I have another $500 or so to play with.

When I go to Lightroom and look back on

NAME NAME NAME... Please.

You can pick up a sweet copy of a 35-70 f/3.5 AI-s for less that two hundred dollars. If you want an inexpensive AF zoom, you might want to consider the 28-105 f/3.5-4.5 or the 28-70 f/3.5-4.5, either of which can be bought for the same amount. The first lens I bought after receiving the D700 was the 28-70 f/2.8 AF-s which is a great lens, but will cost closer to a thousand dollars, in part because its replacement costs ove fifteen hundred.

Happy shooting.


The 35-70mm f2.8 is supposed to be a good lens too.

For those of you who may be interested in bottle feeding lambs, here's a video I shot yesterday with the wife's camera.



We castrated ram lambs a little while ago, but I wasn't able to get a shot of that job.

Ben, where are yoooouuuu ?



Hey Phillippe - very kind of you to give a shout out.

lots of work crap at my end - haven't touched a camera in weeks: it's been horrible.
took a pic yesterday just to remind myself what it feels like to press the shutter.

But I've been lurking - trying to keep up with this crazy thread. Some great shots - from Georg and Ronny, John's sets with Nikki, lovely pano in the snow by Phillip. Too many to name.

I assure you my 180 2.8 is quite manually focused.

I wouldn't have thought the particulars of the camera body would have mattered in a thread dedicated to the merits of particular lenses. Film, digital, FM2 or 40D, it's all about the glass, right? But okay, I see the door.


And it was because I assumed you thought that way that I made my comment. Our focus is that narrow simply because this is the only place on FM where there can be a discussion of using these lenses on a Nikon camera. They don't qualify as "Alternative Gear" where you'll find folks shooting with Canon cameras singing the praises of these lenses. I'm happy Canon users appreciate the lenses and I've read a few posts on the Alternative Gear forum on the subject, but I wanted to give folks with Nikon cameras the opportunity to celebrate lenses manufactured for precisely those cameras. Nothing personal in this. Had you read the first page of the thread you would see our intention spelled out clearly...

This thread is devoted to those photographers shooting with Nikon digital and film cameras who mount manual focus Nikon lenses, specifically those lenses with either Nikkor or Series E Nikon labels.

If you happen to use Nikon MF lenses on a Nikon film camera, you're more than welcome to join us. And if you decide to step up from that excellent 40D to one of the many excellent Nikon digital cameras you can surely do the same. But that doesn't seem to be where your interest lies so perhaps other places on FM will suit your tastes better. Good luck.

I also just picked up my FE2 from the local repair shop - all new seals, mounting flange/focusing screen calibration, etc. Now the 50/1.2 will live on it and 8 more rolls of Provia 100 to run through.

While I was there I took some test shots with the 200/4 macro at infinity-like distances - we'll see how it looks.

Thanks Curtis -

I'm trying to keep the already high bar set by others high regarding images from Nikki. I need to run downtown to take some city-shots maybe later in the week when the sun is supposed to make a brief appearance.
