Backing up a few pages to go through images ..

Ray, so that's a lens bag specifically, a camera with a lens won't fit in?



The camera with lens fits between the two small lenses with lens fitting down between them. Sorry I hadn't adjusted the partitions but it fits perfectly.

The 105mm f/1.8 AI-s rarely disappoints when I use it for portraiture. It also helps having such a beautiful subject. Margot turned 5 months old a couple of days ago, and is really coming into herself. Here she is having some tummy time, tracking the cat walking across the room. Wide open at f/1.8, near the minimum focus.

Beautiful image Philip of what is surely the pride of your life... She is gorgeous and this is a great photo. Well done.

I like the strong light too coming from above - giving her a bit of glow. (Am I seeing some green fringing too Philip?)

For those folks intrigued by the camera bag Ray showed us a short while ago, I found this link on E-Bay to what appears to be that bag at around the price he quoted... In case anyone is interested.

I'm with Ben Rafael, the lenses look awfully sweet. And at least from my perspective the kind of assessment you offer is very worthwhile, especially in response to Ray's question. This is what friends are for... even cyber friends...

Ben, I didn't comment on your recent set of images, but I was quite taken with them as well... especially the woman passing with the delicious lighting. I'm glad you're happy with the major investment you made for that PC-E lens. They remain a bit rich for my pocket book, but I always enjoying seeing what they produce. I look forward to your experimentation with that lens. Have fun!

Thanks Curtis and Ben! Yes, the 105mm f/1.8 AI-s is prone to LoCA wide open, with some obvious green fringing about strongly backlit subjects behind the focal plane. Strangely I don't often shoot scenes where the corresponding purple is also observed in front of the focal plane, but rest assured, it too is around. Disappears when stopped down, but what's the fun in stopping a lens down?

Rafael, thanks for posting that comparison link for the 5.8cm 1.4S. Excellent review against the modern 50 1.4G. It seems to lag behind mainly in terms of edge performance and coma, after six decades. Not bad at all.

http://lenstip.com/114.11-article-50_years_of_Nikon_F-mount_%E2%80%93_Nikkor-S_5.8_cm_f_1.4_vs._Nikkor_AF-S_50_mm_f_1.4G_Summary.html

An interesting page to look at for various versions of the 5.8cm and 50mm 1.4 lenses is here:

http://destoutz.ch/lenses_standard_50mm_f1.4.html

Based on the serial #s there, I am able to estimate my copy of the 50 1.4S was produced late 1967 - early 1968.

One of the first photos with my 50 1.4 SC
My first AI lens now I see what they mean by a longer focus throw. I like the scalloped ring
Whether I like it better than the 50 1.8 ai-s remains to be seem but one will have to go
A little rust with it

I have one AI lens and I'm not too keen with it. I believe I'll stick to the AI-s versions. Good bokeh play by the way.

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.

Rafael, at first I hated this lens. Didn't think it compared to the 28 2.8 or the 50 f2 but I've become a convert if only for convenience when travelling - and it cost me about $70!

It is about what works for ourselves, for me the longer rotation of the non-ai, k and ai focusing rings is better than the loose short rotation ais norm. Prefer the added drag and precision.

Fasnacht hit Winterthur today and with it the traditional Guggenmusik parade.

All taken with the 180mm and the 35-70mm which was a very handy lens in the circumstances.

I think the evil spirits made it in anyway! Great shot Mark.

Well Monty, that is one hell of a lens, one of the best Nikon made. But it is quite big, not something many people will appreciate getting shoved in their faces. On the other hand, it is so fast that you will probably get a focused shot before they have time to 'salute' you.

Mark, what a fun event. Out of the set, I am most enthralled with the shot of the drummer with the 180.
