Nice to see you back on the thread Nancy and I love this image. Black and white was a good choice. I know I'm a bit of a snob in selling my copy of that excellent lens. I'm happy others are putting it to good use. Well done.

I've been loving your work with the 25-50 f/4 Rafael. Wonderful images! I may not use that lens often but I definitely am pleased to have it in my kit for those occasions when I want a wide zoom.

I mounted the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF, largely because it was sitting on a cabinet in the living room when I noticed the blossoms on my neighbor's tree. This is what I caught...


And down the street I found flowers in another neighbor's yard...


Wide open, hand held... is there another way?

I can't wait for stuff to start blooming in my neck of the woods. Very nice shots Curtis and wide open, hand held is the only way!

One of you made mention of this: The 1/4000 top speed on the D600 is a real issue with me It would almost eliminate my daytime shooting wide open.

Why would this eliminate daytime shooting?

Because I have three F1.4 lenses. Shooting wide open would not be possible at 1/4000 of a sec because of too much light for that speed. The only answer would be to stop down or using a ND filter. The example I posted was at 1/8000 at F2 To use this lens under those circumstances with a D600 it would require stopping down to F5.6 thus destroying the DOF


You actually have the option with the D600 to shoot at iso 50 at 1/4000, which is the SAME as iso 100 at 1/8000. I have not compared images from my D7000 shooting at iso 100 @ 1/8000 and the D600 shooting with it at iso 50 @ 1/4000. But the few images I have shot at iso 50 with the D600 show NO loss of IQ, IMHO... YMMV.

However Ray, I do see what you mean about shooting in sunny Florida. Perhaps you should be looking elsewhere as in the D800!

There's an AI'd 85 Nikkor H for sale in the C-list for the Ann Arbor, Michigan area. Not sure if I'm allowed to post a link but thought I'd share in case there was any interest.

I think this would look better in your bag! There's an HC version available locally I have my eye on.

If you shoot RAW, I don't think Lightroom can recognize the D-Lighting info. I believe you have to use NX2. Not a big deal, but it was something that I noticed. Since I use LR, I usually have DL turned off.

Yes Tony, NX2 and Raw, never found anything I wanted to do to a photo that NX2 with the NIK plug in didn't do. Also never found a reason to shoot anything but RAW. I do believe D-Lighting does change the exposure some, not sure though.

It's tempting, Leighton (especially the opportunity to own a "scalloped" lens and possibly operate a fine piece of mechanical work from that era), but 85mm is a primary focal length for me in portraiture (candid and semi-formal) and I find I have more consistent results focus wise with an AF lens with today's focus screen and viewfinders. Besides, when I want to shoot MF portraits, I have the 75-150 and the 105 which I find to be great performers. I have decided to thin the MF portrait ranks however, and (selfish plug next) I've put my Series E 100 (another great performer, I'm still of two minds on selling it) on the B&S board.

Georg, this is the first time I've seen this, and I admire the concept and execution.

Rafael, I'm enjoying the El Salvador series very much. You wouldn't happen to have an external gallery with more pics from this trip I can look through, do you?

Joining in the conversation on the ND filters, it's one of the two filters I still use in the digital age; the ND and polarizer (and very rarely a UV/Clear for protection). Besides, the high speed flash sync on the Nikons above 1/250th has very much reduced flash power, I think a greater loss than the light loss from a flash through an ND filter. I think this means that everyone south of Ohio NEEDS a D4 or D800

Nothing pretty about this picture. Just a reminder of the world we live in. Shot across the Del river to the NJ side. It is about a half mile. 135 3.5

Really great photo, Georg. Makes me want to put the 50 1.2 on my D700 and see if I can come close.

Oops. the sun went away...

Welcome Back Jose, thank you for the Bird compliments but it is not very hard to get great shots of tied-down raptors, we were just filling in for your absence. The TC 300 is good with the 400 3.5 but not necessarily with other lenses. You will love the D600 for dynamic range and those pixels.

Jeff, thanks for the compliment, fantastic clouds and cliffs on broken hill

Thanks to all for your kind comments on my El Salvador photos, it is soul healing to spend time with family and friends, to find your place in their heart available as always.

Finally starting to feel a little better. I have been down with whatever cold/flu/plague crap that has been going around my shop. Saturday I felt ok for a little while and I met a new friend that came over for a shoot.

I thought I would throw my 2 cents into the discussion about ND filters and fast glass. For me, they are a necessity. I used a ND4 (2-Stop) for this shot, but would like to have had a ND8 to kill some more DOF. I have to use them, since I also use strobes out in the field

What a mysterious shot well done Tony!

Oh geez - 500/4 AI-P available on the local CL for $2K and appears to be in excellent shape! How am I going to pull this one off . . . .
