After my post to Peter above I had to step out the door with the 80-200 f/4.5 AI mounted with a PK-13 to take a couple of quick shots... Here are two... wide open which at f/4.5 is workable. This lens is capable of producing sharp images wide open.

You'd better keep hanging around Ben or that lens you loaned us might get lost in San Francisco...

Truth be told, passion for shooting comes and goes, as does the inclination to chat about gear. It is wonderful that we have so many folks visiting this thread, including newcomers who bring their enthusiasm to spice things up. Right now I'm a bit turned on once again by extension tubes and flowers... I'll try to restrain myself...

Some love for a lens that doesn't get much use from me, the 75-150mm Series E. A versatile range of focal lengths covered but a couple of peculiarities the stop it becoming a firm favorite like the vignetting on the FX sensor and the zoom creep I haven't quite eliminated yet.
However I think it gives a very nice colour rendition and can make some very pleasing images.






Duck!







Small boy, big world







I don't know why I really liked this shot.







This should work on this forum, bikes and beer together.







Spring! Inside the house at least.

Did you erase the card when you loaded Peter? If not you could pop it back in the camera and just see if you can view them. I used to check the box to delete when finished loading and quit doing that after a similar issue happened to me.


Ron, thanks for the reply. I always format the card in camera and never erase after the download. I've tried varous free recovery software without result and to be really honest the loss of these images is a pity not a tragedy. I've tried via the camera with no luck also and will just have to accept the "rub of the green" ( a golf term for a bad bounce or something sim ilar).

Also check the info on one of the .nef files and be sure it is as large as you think it may be.

Are you opening them, or importing them? Try importing.

Also, if you haven't done this, try rebooting your PC. On a Mac, I would repair the permissions. Don't know what the equivalent is on the PC.

You could also download the free demo of Lightroom, or Photoshop, and see if that works...


Thank you for the input. Sadly nothing seems to work but I've had a similar experiene with film where I didn't notice that the take up spool hadn't engagaed the sprockets!

Reminds me of the old story about the executive famed for his good judgement. When asked what he attributed his good judgement to he replied "Bad judgement".

Just says it all.

Leighton - putting your best foot forward?

Curtis - your comment epitomises what this thread is about. See a shot, think "I've a lens or tube", get out there, post, get someone else thinking "I've a lens" and so we move on...

The daffs and Dutch images are excellent - wait "I have a 105 2.5 that I haven't used for a while....."

Great images with the 80-200 4.5 .. I'd love to see what you could do with my lens

Ben - great to see you. I hope you're not a cricket fan.....

Mark - good stuff. Glad the snow's gone and the narcissii are out.

Hey Ben, haven't seen you for ages. In fact I felt abandoned!
Actually I have been a bit tied up at work.
Nice stuff from you with the PCE!

Mark, like the shot of your son, and yes, you can't go wrong with beer and bikes. Just don't ride while drinking!

Yeah I know Curtis - if I don't keep announcing myself I fear I'm never going to see it again. You're going to restrain yourself huh? - looking forward to seeing how that goes!

Peter - no, not a cricket fan - but, yes, it's not going well.

Phillippe - no, never abandoned. It's a bit like you - work is intruding on my real life - and it never stops raining here. Don't worry - I'm following your posts - but you cheat - you post old pics!

Peter, sorry to hear about the misfortune! I've had good luck with RescuePro (kinda bundled with Sandisk-Extreme-cards). In the past years I could recover a lot of shots from friends/co-workers with it ("bad cards" or unintentionally deleted shots).

Funny note: I've dropped a CF-card with lotsa sports-shots into a mug of coffee once (strong, black, no milk, no sugar, not even rum) and after a quick rinse with water and some hectic activities with a hair-drier I've found all images on the card without the use of a recovery-program.

Thanks Leighton and Peter.

Leighton - absolutely right, Drinking and driving or riding is a very stupid idea.
Peter - Snow's still here, we had to keep the flowers in the house to get them to bloom, everything outside (even the "Winter hardy") have died. Least sunlight in winter here for 30 years hasn't down the garden any favors. Just had the first Braai of the year with a friend of mine originally from Jo'burg who was back home for 2 weeks diving and was nearly in tears when he got back to -9C

That was with the 135 f/2.8 AI that got VERY little use on that trip and didn't make a subsequent trip. Of course, I discovered it is an excellent lens with tubes and put it to use that way.

I'll post the windmills shot for those newcomers who weren't around back then... two and a half years ago... amazing we've been at this so long...

Rain started to fall only moments after this was shot.


Thanks for re-posting. It may not have gotten much action, but what it did, it did beautifully. Great capture. Also really like your latest work with the tubes, but I think even from the early days of this thread you've had a talent for them.

Ben and Philippe - nice to hear from you! As usual very nice work!

Curtis, I like the windmills-shot a lot! I've been boating over at Frisia a couple of times and really like the views from the countless waterways.
The Agave (?) is another great capture.

Mark, beautiful portrait of your son!

Leighton, I really wonder how you've managed to shoot your boot ;-)

Avi, congrats to your 400/5.6!

Kevin, very nice work with the "underrated" Series-E-28mm! I like especially the free-lensed "Abstract".

Ronny, good job with the 180/2.8ED!

Jose, the Pompeii-shots are really great - keep em coming!

Chin, the digger in the jungle is fantastic!
