I have both in AIS guise, at f/2.0 to my eyes: the 35 1.4 has flatter field and is sharper at longer distances, the 35 2 is better at short distances, and shows less aberration on bright lights. Both are good lenses at 2.0. from 2.8 on the 1.4 is better, more even performance across the frame. If price is a consideration I would get the 2.0. If 1.4 is wanted, the 1.4 is a competent performer at full aprrture as long as no lights are in the frame. Here is a comparison for landscape, similar photo at f2 on

Thanks for the comparison. I've bid on 6 Nikkor 35mm f1.4s over the last few months. I'm not a low baller, but the lens seems to attract snipers - of which I am one. I almost always win auctions this way, but not with the f1.4. The price seems overly inflated in my opinion. I Enjoyed these photos of yours, Rafael...

Not much to shoot out there. Some inside shots to test out the 28-50mm f3.5 AIS. Quick JPEG shots from my D2X.

Chuong, I like this first one very much. Nicely captured. The 28-50 is a neat little lens.

Thank you Tony, Peter, Philippe, Leighton, Laura, and Jeff for the comments on the farmhouse image (hope I did not miss anyone). Yes it was snowing when I took the image and quite cold. We have over a foot of snow on the ground. Whenever a bit melts, more replaces it. Sure has been pretty though. Leighton, I do not know the whole history of the farmhouse, but it was one of the original farmstead homes here. The cobblestone exterior is quite unique too. The town has taken the farm over and turned it into a nature park.

I'm glad to see these old farmsteads surviving.

Speaking of old "farmsteads", your work with Nikki at Monticello has been great. Certainly a beautiful place.

Thanks for the kind comments from those on the Ice & Wood picture. It's an old quarry I've been wanting to check out for awhile, and the cold week made for some interesting pictures.

A couple of others from this morning.

Leighton, I've been enjoying Nikki, esp at Monticello.

Outstanding work with the PCE again, Phillipe.

Laura, "To the garage" is super.

Rafael, I like you picture of the paintings, I prefer the first treatment.

John, your shot of the clouds from above is one reason why I wish I was close to real mountains!! Superbly done.

Chuong, the red wall + hat shot shows a very good eye for light.

Ray

It has been too long that I went out shooting with a Nikon MF lens (I usually shoot Samyang), but here is an effort from today. I set out to try the "Brenizer" effect (see http://www.ryanbrenizer.com/2011/05/brenizer-method-instructions/), but the subject was too far away for a meaningful effect and my 105mm 2.5 vignettes a little bit wide open and I have not found the exactly right correction in LR/PS yet...

So I grabbed my basic shot at 5.6 and tried an app that I downloaded a long time ago from the Apple AppStore, called "Focus". It is one of the many 'bokeh' type applications.

Then I ran the resulting tiff file back through LR and into Silver Efex Pro 2.

I will go back to see what happens if I change my position slightly to avoid the piece of black soil in the foreground. Also, the effect on the tree trunk is somewhat funky - I will revisit that issue too...

But for now - enjoy and comments / suggestions are welcome.

New lenses have landed. May get the chance to shoot tomorrow, indoors. Today is all about gray sky's, rain and cold temps. The Series E 28mm f/2.8 looks new, the 80-200mm is an old soldier, but early tests show its still sharp as a tack.

Today wasn't really "my day":

not my day von georgsfoto auf Flickr
...this is how I left the house for 4 assignments in a row ;-)
After walking from the parking car to my first job (soccer-game) my feet felt somehow strange and I've noticed my mistake.
Lucky me - I had a pair of old workboots in the car and could work without becoming target for other photogs...

Here's a picture from a tradition over here: the star boys' singing procession made station in the city hall to collect money for Tanzanian children.
Children are children all over the world and get bored if something takes too much time. And if children get bored they start doing silly things like teasing the neighbor:
