Great use of the flash to make what would have been a snap shot in to a wonderful image.


For a second I could not see struts and thought it was a trick shot! DOH Great image

Man these prices seem high for 1957. No wonder people bought a ton of Vivatar lenses for their Nikon.

Rafael, thanks for posting these beautiful examples! The 25-50 would make a nice combo with the 16/3.5 (as demonstrated by you) and a short tele-lens like a fast 105 or so.
A fast 35 would fit in this hypothetical kit nicely too.
Btw, that's a fantastic place, overlooking a lake - it doesn't get much better.


Great set Rafael,
The shot of the the house reminds me of staying on a coffee plantation in Africa. Aslo your work with the 16mm really is incredble and shows the strength of this lens. Please stop making me want one!

Was Vivatar even around then?

Wow Rafael, that's straight from a storybook!

Well done Georg. Love the look on the pilot's face, a let's-get-this-done-and-over-with look

Well, after arriving from my trip I took 4 days to read over 45 pages on this thread!

So many great conversations and images, I just will comment a tiny fraction in the next posts.

Just yesterday my new D600 arrived (bought by impulse that great priced promotional kit with a "garbage" AF lens, which I will put to sell soon) and now my trusty D3 is being sold.

Before Italy (need to process a huge amount of images) I am posting some of the first shots with the D600 + my beloved Nikki's daughter, another storm coming yesterday late afternoon:



Storm coming - 5 vertical shots pano with Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd by labecoaves, on Flickr

5 vertical shots pano, 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd and CPU'd, f/5.6 at 1/60s, ISO 1600, window sill supported.
Jpges straight from the camera + slight PP.

I know it is too early, but generally I am impressed by this 24mp FX sensor; and I feel Nikki's daughter shines on it

I took a trip to Honeymoon Island today to do some shooting with my 300mm 4.5 EDIF with the TC-14a. Before the rains came I was treated to my favorite honeymoon couple the Great Horned Owls. They have two new babies again this year. I was lucky enough a few years ago to get photos of them mating and seems as though they are still busy in that regard. There were many photogs there including a few of those Canon people

Monty wonderful image






Ron what a beautiful setting
Rafael great use of the 16mm 3.5 - outstanding
Curtis the flower shot is terrific. Now that spring is in the air in Cali I am sure there are more to come
Jose great work with the 500mm
Georg this one is terrific





Chin I can see a great deal of potential in that lens! Great example

Ray, the one thing I do know is that it wouldn't matter WHAT camera you were using, the images would be great.

When I first got my D600 after selling my D7000 I wasn't happy with my images. I thought and still do that the D7000 metered better than the D600 right out of camera. BUT, and this is a big but, after I started working with those 24mp FX raw files I was blown away! Shooting raw lets me address any of the so-called shortcomings that I might see in the metering system. The cropping ability is so good

Leighton this is a tremendous help. Exactly what I was looking for. All I have to do is weigh the pros and cons of each and at least try it out before I buy either. Hell maybe I will get both

Thank you all for your kind comments on my concert series. Now for something completely different: three shots with the 20mm/3.5 and one with the 28mm/3.5 PC (unshifted). Shots taken a week ago during a walk with my wife passing Durgerdam, just north of Amsterdam. My first outing with the shift lens; it was freezing cold and I didn't want my wife to put up with me figuring out how the shift works.

Swan couple distrusting my moves with tripod and shift lens:

Just a quick note that the 400mm 3.5 with the TC16a does work well enough for the D800 but is not as sharp as the same lens with the TC300.

Here is an secretary bird with the TC300 on a D3

Unbelievably sharp Rafael.
I never liked the TC300/301, but in your hands there is no argument against it!

Crazy weather, we had a snow storm that left an inch or two this morning, then it all melted followed by a rain shower a little while ago. And then this rainbow popped out with the end of it right in our lane, I haven't see one with this intense colors in a long time.







Stunning rainbow.
I never managed to capture a so rich colours rainbow as yours!
