And some from the same walk with the 180mm beastie. Hard to say but I think my current favorite. Although the 55mm was fun with the macro shots yesterday...


Mark, I like the last two in this set very much. The 180 is hard to beat! When you get a chance, try the 55mm at landscape, it can be very sharp and contrasty.

Mark, I liked the forest set with the zoom too.
Agree with Leighton, 55/2.8 is sharp at infinity.

Thanks Ray, Leighton, Laura, and Ronny for the kind words.

Laura, I almost never use flash with birds (except owls at night, of course!), I prefer natural light besides the fact that some birds are disturbed by the flash;

Leighton, fantastic experiment with Nikki: beautiful flower with ther "170mm f/1.8" !

John, simply spetacular MT. Si and Low Clouds, but I liked too the "cold bird"

I think there must be a 100 or more pages since I was last here! ;-) So forgive me for all the ones I've missed. To mention just a few:
Super hawk shot, Jose - nice timing!
John - those shots looking down on the clouds are really powerful - I can see why you're after some compact lenses, hiking up that far!
Monty - love the dog with the bokeh ;-)

I'm recently back from a trip to Namibia - didn't use the manual lenses as much as I'd hoped simply because of lack of time to swap lenses - the light comes and goes so quickly. But here's one with the 24/2.8 AIS on the D800e.

Lizzie

When you are stacking a TC and tubes, which order do you mount them onto the camera, is it the TC mounted to the camera then the tubes or visa-versa, or do you put the TC part way through your tubes stack?

I ask as I did some macro shooting last night but want to get even closer but already had no working distance (using the 55mm micro lens from Tony).

Thanks,
Mark.



Mark, I have used both configs. If you need more magnification, then you need to use camera + TC + tube + lens.

Thank you Ronny and Lizzie.

Lizzie, what a spetacular scenario!
Good to know the 24/2.8 works beautifully with the D800E in good hands.

John - I'm with Jose - they're so spectacular - even the cold bird.

Jose - same to you - the Hawk shots are astonishing.

Georg, I want to echo the very positive comments about your New Year's Eve fireworks photo. Great work!

Alan, nice shots of your little guy and his wooden Leica. Something tells me it won't be long before he wants the real thing.

Jose, the Hawk on take off is a wonderful image! Thanks for the stacking tip.

Adam, welcome! Very nice holiday shot.

Ronny, great shot of your daughter and her horse. As said above, nice choice of focus.

Leighton, your landscape shots are hitting on all cylinders and I really enjoyed the ones from Monticello and Ashlawn.

Dylan, that skating trail looks like a blast! Add me to the list of folks who prefer the eye contact shot.

Monty, wonderful bokeh shot.

John, really like your mountain photos, especially the Mt. Ranier pano and "Low Clouds."

Chuong, very cool photo of the SoloEtte.

Americo, great colors from your 85mm.

Tony, very nice portraits of your son.

Mark, amazing detail in the rock shot and I really like #1 and #8 of your forest series.

Lizzie, beautiful African landscape.

Laura, good luck with your studies!
