This is just to show as a polarizer can reduce haze and bring colours to a subject ~12 km away. The lens is 1600mm x 1.5 (DX crop) = 2400mm.


No CPL filter:

D300 + TC20EIII + Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 AIS IF-ED (=1600mm f/11) + tripod, ISO 200, f/22 at 1/80s.


With a Circular Polarizer filter:

This second image is with a Nikon 52mm drop in CPL.
D300 + TC20EIII + Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 AIS IF-ED (=1600mm f/11) + tripod, ISO 200, f/22 at 1/15s.

Te bluish haze cast is gone and deep/truest colours appears through 12km of atmosphere!


Just as a reference, this is the view of the same tower in the montain with a D3 + 200mm f/4 ais:

The "Pico do Jaraguá" is around 12 km from my balcony. The deep red can be attractive, but this is mainly result of air pollution by millions of cars.
D3 + Nikkor 200mm f/4 ai-s + tripod, f/8 at 2s of exposure, ISO 200.

Thank you Jose. Nikki is well balanced and very sharp, even wide open!
Wow the photo of the sunset is simply amazing!

And a hawk, with a rather flexible neck. Used the 180 2.8 AIS for this one, and the next instant the hawk was off to a branch to hide.

+1 Samy, I still haven't shot the Heinkel-remains here. But it's on my to-do-list.

Hi all, been busy with the customer in town and my kid transferring college. So far so Good. will catch up to everyones postings later in the week. Wanted to share my personal observations on the 20mm 1:3.5 UD that I own. I have used the lens on film with good success, here is a sample of a scanned slide, likely at 1:11.

Note the interesting rainbow rays at full aperture, only lens I own that does this.

My observation is that this lens is very usable at 3.5 on the D800, center is very sharp and gracefully softens towards the corners,

I agree Rafael - that's been my experience with the 20mm 3.5UD too (don't have the 18)

Jose, impressive long-lens-technique! Is a single stable tripod enough for the 800mm+TC20-combo?
I would think even loud music from one of your neighbors could induce visible vibrations. Amazing!
The pictures taken with the TC14A a excellent too.

Ray, wow, what a start with Nikki! Love the blue flowers-shot and the blossoms on the "naked twigs".

Rafael, wonderful shots taken with the rather exotic 20/3.5 UD and the lovely 45/2.8! My copy of the 20/3.5 UD has a big spot on the frontlens - I still think about having it cleaned, but don't wanna spend big Euros for a repair. Decisions...

Philippe, love the skating-image!

Philippe, nice image of the skaters. Judging from the snow on her knees, she had taken a spill or two.

Rafael, good comparison of the 18 and 20mm Nikkors. The 20mm 3.5 Ai is my "wide angle" workhorse on my D7000 unless I use my DX lens. I find it gives me great results stopped down for landscape work.

Jose, thank you for the comment. Interesting comparison of what the cpl will do.

Ray, great start with Nikki. Wonderful flower images.

Samy, welcome back. The hawk does look a bit double jointed.

Great shot Ben! Maybe you will have more luck with them when you call them mannequins instead of dummies

John, found a factory ai ring in e-bay, and I don't use it much. It would get a lot more use if my cameras were smaller.

Thanks Jose! Those are amazing results - and the "not recommended" even looks good (just missed focus). I tried some close work with the TC last night. Well, see how this shakes out. I already have a 1.4x TC (an AF universal version by Tamron) that seems to produce identical results up close. The loaner is considering trading me for a gimbal tripod head.

James, this TC is the only which will fit in 200mm or smaller Nikkor focal lenghts. I have some samples shots:

Nice flower shots with Nikki, Ray.

I find myself reaching for the 28-50mm f3.5 AIS a lot. I like this little lens. Here is one with it.
