Good morning everyone. Some of you may remember me. I'm the guy that turns all of the color photos into black and white

Well, recently I purchased a D800 and one of those evil AF lenses. Sorry I've been having a lot of fun with it. Maybe too much fun. I plan on getting another one. My beautiful MF lenses are just sitting around doing nothing. I've decided to sell them. Before I put them on eBay I thought I offer them to you people. I'll sell them for what I paid plus $10 shipping on each lens.

So here is the list, condition, serial number and price paid

28mm f/2.8 AIS EX
646172
$266.00

180mm f/2.8 ED AIS EX+
429828
$451.00

105mm f/2.5 AIS EX+
1031307
$349.00

50mm f/1.8 EX
3139585
$154.00

20mm f2.8 EX+
300801
$375.00

85mm f/1.4 AI-S EX+
219629
$651.00

Yes, I'm keeping the 16mm

PM me if you are interested.

Monty

Well I never thought I'd see this day. I'm glad you're keeping the 16 just so you can drop in from time to time.

Wow Monty, very surprised to hear of your "defection"!

Keep posting here with the 16mm though, and good luck with your sales.

Trust me, Monty will some day start getting nostalgic about turning that focus ring and will be back looking for at least the 85 Let him enjoy his newfound love in the meanwhile.

THe worst part of all this is that I no longer feel a part of this thread. I've posted in a few other threads, but none compare to the friendship I've found here! I'll stay in touch...

Just because the lenses are for sale doesn't mean they will sell. And yes, I'll continue to post....

I've very impulsive. Like a light switch. On then off then back on again. In a year or so I'll probably be buying them all over again

For "Monty's Monthly Meetup" our photo club went to an art museum yesterday.
I always make everyone pose for a group shot. I hate group shots, they always look the same. I try to make them different by using the 16mm

I treat my MF glass like vintage cars - they are fun to take out on a spin from time to time, but I am quite aware that there are more capable options out there. MF glass and this thread are also a great reason to just go out and shoot something, but you clearly don't seem to have a problem to motivate yourself to shoot pictures

Even though I shoot mostly AF 'when it matters,' I'm still looking to extend my MF kit (16mm and 50/55mm f1.2 mostly). Beyond that, any major lens investment in glass will most likely be a modern lens, with full DXO profile for perfect correction, and almost all of those are AF.

Meanwhile MF glass I have helps me stay sane by providing a reference of what used to be great - keeps me away from the highest end nano-fangled hyper lenses, as I can see in comparison that even my consumer AF lenses are quite excellent these days. But you certainly don't need a collection of really nice nikkors like yours to have that reference. Just keep your favorite(s) and take them for a Sunday morning spin once in a while

Bad thing about taking vintage cars out for a spin is they get filthy in about 5 min and you spend a few hours cleaning them
Best of luck to to you Monty
I hear the AF calling me again. I should have never borrowed one.
It's like a voice I can hear right in my ear saying SELL SOMETHING

I'll stop selling when I have enough $$$ for the lens I currently drooling over.
Hopefully the 85mm doesn't sell

Have you seen the latest rebates

I saw the rebates this morning. Still more money than I want to spend. I will rent one if I need it for vacation
I feel the new Sigma 35 1.4 AF pulling at me but a new carburetor is pulling the other way.When is the next Powerball drawing
I almost bought a 85 1.4 on the B/S but the guy p*ssed me off so I told him to forget it. Just as well I would have sold it next month

They say the 70-200 vr2 is really only 135 when you use it up close
I read that somewhere but I could be wrong. I have been known to have been wrong before

That's right Leighton.

Monty, I'm surprised to see you letting it almost all go. I hope you end up keeping the 85 too. That lens was a perfect match for you. Those rebates are huge. I'd actually been considering selling an AF lens, but the used market prices just took too much of a hit so I'll be holding onto them for now.

My copy of the 28-45mm is very sharp on the D800 with very unique look. Your photos will make me use it more. The lens is light compared to the 25-50mm and it is the best built zoom ever.
