As many of you know I traveled to Ohio to visit my mother to celebrate her 90th birthday a couple of weeks ago. I had a wonderful day with her. She had not been doing very well but that day was like old times. I am so glad that I went because yesterday my sweet mother passed away. She has a lot of family waiting for her on the other side including my father who pass at the turning of the century. Her funeral will be on Tuesday, so my brothers and sister will be flying to attend. Thank you

Ray, I'm so sorry to hear of your mother. It sounds like perhaps she had a wonderful life. I'll pray for your safe trip.

I am sorry to hear, Ray. Have a safe trip up here. It's about 3 inches of snow.

Leighton, I repost to you the only direct comparison at f/2 (not scientific, casual one - hand held) between the 85/1.4 and "Nikki's daughter" (85/1.8 K ai'd, supposedly the same optics of the H).



Bokeh at f/2 - Guess which is the lens (85mm/1.4 ais or 85mm/1.8K aid)? by labecoaves, on Flickr

Bokeh at f/2 of Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 ais
D7000 at ISO 100, hand held.





Bokeh at f/2 - Guess which is the lens (85mm/1.4 ais or 85mm/1.8K aid)? by labecoaves, on Flickr

Bokeh at f/2 of Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd
D7000 at ISO 100, hand held.



Perhaps the 1.4 has a little bit smoother bokeh, but for me both lenses are sharp and the 1.8 size and handling is a joy to use.




And a bokeh playing with the 85/1.8 K only:


Nikkor 85mm f/1,8 K ai'd bokeh study by labecoaves, on Flickr

Just playing bokeh of this old Nikkor at the MFD (85 cm).
f/1.8 is good for dreamy effects, best bokeh; at f/5.6 there is a compromise between flower detail and a reasonable bokeh; f/11 has maximum flower detail, but the bokeh is distracting. D7000 + tripod, ISO 200.

Leighton, another thing to consider is if you are prone to take nightscapes with a lot of lights - note the difference in the number of rays of light coming from light souces:

6 blades of the 85/1.8K ai'd:

Early night cityscape test with the old Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd D3 + tripod, ISO 200, f/8, 25s.



9 blades of the 85/1.4 ais:

Jose, thanks so much for all the examples. Nikki's sister holds up quite nicely against the great 1.4. I'm just not sure the route I want to take. Save a little money and get an H, or say you only live once, buy the 1.4!

Both are wonderful lenses I can only say that you will not be disappointed in spending the extra for the 85mm 1.4. To me it was worth the extra money

Here are some more shots with Nikki at the Bok Tower and Gardens. It looks like Zenfolio is up and running again.

Really like this last one. How do you like zenfolio? If someone buys a pic from your site, are they quick to send you the funds?

Kevin I did not op for the premium package. I just got the basic for now. I can say that I am very happy with the service, the main reason for that is that they store your original file up to 36 mp. Then you can select the size that you want to share. It is like having an storage place off site for your photos. Many of the other sites downsize your photos.
BTW I like what you are doing with the 28mm - great work!

Thanks for these Ray, The bokeh is obviously better than the 1.8, but I was surprised to see more CA in the 1,4 version when you look at the leaf on the right side.

I love the white flowers in your last set.

Couple of shots from a week ago...finally got around to posting them. You folks (along with the MF kit I now have) are really forcing me to get things right in camera before doing anything in post. These three have less than 5 minutes of post work done on them. The two abstracts are converted to B/W using channel mixer in PS6. Hope to give SEP a try this weekend.

Please, C&C the heck out of these. I feel I had hit a plateau with my photography and had lost the fire I once had. Not sure what changed in my

I really like these two Kevin. Great use of shadows in the first one.
