Ben, great perspective and lighting.
Laura, I saw that yesterday from my window and "thought" about taking a few shots. Awesome shots!

Here's a few from this morning. We had a little snow yesterday so it made everything pretty this morning. All shots taken with the 28-50mm f3.5.

The chickens don't care much for the snow

Very nice Leighton,
You live in a really beautiful place. Is your chicken house a converted horse trailer?
I guess right now your Ram is busy trying to learn the names of all his new children.

That lens really makes a dreamy picture.

Perhaps you guys can be interested in this webpage I just have found right now:
http://www.sassmannshausen.eu/lenses.html
There are several interesting comments and sample shots of MF Nikkors.

John, at least for the sample copies of the guy in that site, the 135/3.5 is better evaluated than the 135/2.8.


Great find Jose - I thought I'd found just about every site that reviewed MF Nikkors, but I guess I had not!

I hope that others will collect their images in one place for those of us to peruse.

John

Thanks Mark. The chicken house is indeed a converted horse trailer. I also made a contraption that automatically closes the door at night. The Ram will never meet his "children" as he has to be a bachelor until his services are needed next year.

Maybe those that host their photos on Flickr or other image hosting sites can put links to their profiles? I have my images sorted by lens, or at the very least put the lens data with the picture if its not included in one of my lens folders.

Thoughts?

I have all my photos organized by lenses in sets on Flickr too, so it's easy enough to find my stuff. Also I don't have any non-AI-s glass these days, so every photo I take, save for the odd iPhone shot, is with a manual focus NIKKOR!

Stupid question, can you have your photos in more than 1 set? For example, suppose i take a shot of a barn with the 50mm, can I have it in a 50mm set and say a barn set?

Likewise. I am all manual, all the time now. Series E 28mm and 50mm and 80-200 AI.

Thanks Leighton, one of those checking the door to make sure it was locked, and that moon caught my eye, and I forgot how tired I was

Yea, we have just 2 more ewes to go! It really was a bummer about the compressor, even this time of year, we sell veggies year round. Fortunately, we took this week off because of lambing.

I love your moon shots. I like moon shots better when it's NOT a full moon.


Thanks Chuong, I forgot about going to sleep after I saw it . Moonset tonight is half past midnight, so a little earlier. Hoping it's clear out tonight too, an idea just crossed my mind and it would be interesting to see if I can do this shot that's now stuck in my head.

not a stupid question, and the answer to your question is yes, you can have it in more than one set.

Done! Finished! Over! "NMFAS" Totally cured! Never to stray again! The latest arrival was stalked and lusted for with unrelenting pursuit! The search has ended. Pic taken with the 28 2.8 AI-S.

Oh, and one more thing, there is NO cure.

Your assumption is spot on Ray!
Leighton unless someone points me in the direction of a 1200-1700mm the buying is over with.

Hi all,

I wrote my first post ever, about my lens selection for a trip to Cuba, and about the D600 a couple of days ago.

My account was subsequently blocked - the post is at page 2467 - don't know why. I wrote to Fred and asked, but no reply. Feels a little sad as I have been reading more or less every post on this thread since Curtis started it and it feels like my second home...

These are the lenses I started writing about:






Anyway, I just signed in under another name because I wanted to thank you all for the welcome.
However, I don't really feel like staying so I post this, and a few pictures, and then I'm off.
Don't weep for me.

To Ben:

Hi Gabriel

welcome.

stimulating first post .

I have a D800E - and I'm one of those people who like to shoot raw and like to set ISO manually - was interested to hear that I've missed the point of this camera................

ben


sounds like horrible statement I made there... my point was that if you set your ISO manually, shoot raw and 'develop' your pictures in your computer, you are basically doing what the D600 and D800 seems to be capable of doing all by themselves. And as I am trying to show, with flying colours, sometimes perhaps even better than we can do ourselves!

Today, I have added new posts to the blog I set up trying to cover the D600, at http://nikonsystem.blogspot.com/
For those of you who have not seen it, I basically happened to stumble on a few aspects of the D600 and D800 jpeg behaviour which were not covered anywhere else on the Internet so I decided to share that with as many as possible.

Another example today - from the Camera Obscura in Havana, jpeg SOOC, Nikkor 35mm f/1,4 Ai-S shot at 2,0:






And the same jpeg, but with shadows lifted:






I will try to post another few pictures separately and then I'm off
Best, Gabriel
