Beautiful set Reagan... you may even motivate me to switching aperture rings on the two 50 f/1.4 lenses I own, one S and one S.C. Nicely done!

When I saw this I thought for sure Curtis was selling off his equipment.

Boy would I love to wander through all this gear! But then I noticed when visiting my local camera shop that they had three boxes of old lenses tossed in together. I guess there is a great deal of rather worthless camera gear lying around. We're actually looking for what is a rather rarified class of lenses... old Nikkors that still have a great deal of life in them. I'm always amazed at what folks on this thread are posting from these old beauties. I may not be buying, but I'm certainly NOT selling...

Welcome Jim. I'd encourage you to add your first name to your profile so those of us with memory problems won't have to work quite so hard. I have at assume that a young man like Leighton forgot your name because he's be sipping too many beers as he convalesces...

Many of us list our gear as well so we can track one another's kit building and offer recommendations for spending other people's money...

Love the shots of the Vietnam Memorial Samy. Always nice to see the 55 f/1.2 put to work.

And Ray, your zoo shots are delightful. Thanks for helping the less fortunate among find copies of the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF. It still baffles me that anyone would sell this excellent lens.

To the question about lens acquisition in which the 180 f/2.8 AI-s was mentioned. I took some photos for a friend who was reading from a book to which she'd contributed a story. Most of the time I sat at the rear of the room with the 180 at f/2.8 shooting away. The lens performed beautifully with sharp, contrasty images. I love this lens. It is a great value for money.

Many great images the past few pages.

Reagan, your orchids are beautiful.

Samy, nice series from DC.

Chuong, beautiful image of your daughter.

Rafael, lovely ship model.

Jim, great image from the App Trail.

Thank you to Ray, Ronny, and Leighton for the comments on my image.

Tried a quick experiment. Two images of the same subject, moments apart, with same lighting and post-processing adjustments. Only difference is the lens. Same f-stop and shutter speed. Subject was a friends old Kodak camera, manual focus of course. I was surprised at how well the 28 did up close. Thanks for looking.

Love it. I have a similar old Kodak, think mine may be older.

Thanks folks for the comments on the DC photos. Couple more pictures from the Vietnam memorial.

The third photo was a bus coincidentally parked in a downtown DC street.

All three were with the 55 f1.2S.

Rafael, looks like a fun reunion. Outdoors looks neat through those windows.

Chuong, beautiful portrait with the 85 1.4!!

Kevin, wonderful to hear your work is being considered for a brochure. BTW, I tried to previsualize lines and shadows sitting at the Old Post Office building while in DC (there's good architecture there), but the results were nothing like what you have posted recently

Jim, welcome and great shot of Leighton's backyard

Leighton, Reagan's got a point about acclimatizing that lens. Last time I was in Florida I stepped out of the hotel room and there was a film of warm moisture on the lens front Love that Staunton basket shot with the the already acclimatized 180 though!

Scott, terrific gritty image (with both lenses) of that old Kodak camera and its manual. Well done!

+1 and also for using the 500mm mirror for birding. Is that the first sample of a mirror lens on this thread?

Chin, instead of looking up eBay today, I better spend time reading up on Malayan tigers so mine doesn't say uh-oh

Ha ha that sounds like a better prescription than Ibuprofen Curtis! I took a chance on getting Jim's name right so he would tell us, sneaky ain't I.

Thank you Scott, you just showed us by these two examples why I wanted to get the 28mm AI-s. And it has to be the AI-s as the AI won't focus as close according to photosynthesis.com.
