Curtis, That $90 investment in the 105 2.5P is more than worth it, looking at those images-especially the first one of the leaf and its reflection.

I am still kicking myself for not having the camera in the car this past week when I came across the hawks on the way.

Two birds from my recent trip to India, the first one's a hoopoe, clearly running away from the crazy guy with the camera. The second's a roller.

Both with the 180mm 2.8 AIS.

I hope everyone is well ... wonderful images as always.

Still getting through my images from our trip to Siem Reap last November. Going to try and edit more this weekend. I hope you don't mind seeing more of these.

These were all taken with the 180/2.8 Ai-S. It's not the most compact lens to take traveling but I'm glad I did ... such a wonderful lens.



Dean I really like that set.
# 2 is a terrific and very moving image (framing could perhaps be improved).
Well done!

Hi John,
Nice pano work here. I like the layering of the distant mountains. What software do you use to stitch your panos?

Thank you John, Leighton, Samy, and Philippe for the comments on the ice covered window. Winter has had a good grip on us this past week.

My condolences Ray, we are all here because of the selfless beautiful people before us, traveling the same jouney and shall be together again. In the meantime let's keep their memory close and dear as part of our daily life.

I tested two AI/AIS lenses against their modern 1.8G counterparts over the last week, concentrating on resolution at landscape f/stops. The 28 1.8G trounced the 3.5 AI across the whole image frame, while the 85 f/2 AIS has held it's own/surpassed the 85mm 1.8G (still testing). I don't have time to make crops this weekend, but I'll post the .nefs to Dropbox if anyone is interested.

The 28mm f3.5 isn't known for greatness. Put the 1.8G up against the 28 f2.8 AI-s, and you'd have a better comparison.

The 28 2.8 ais vs the 28 1.8g is a comparison I would be interested in.

Huddy put it up against the f/2.0, which is a better lens for my purposes then the 2.8. The 1.8 was sharper with similar OOFA response, if not slightly better. I just don't think the old wides can compare to the new designs in terms of absolute resolution.

Testing the TC16a on the 500 F4P for semi-auto-focus, at about 20 feet and the second one closer to infinity. Leighton if this combo is not allowed let me know. I do have to manually get the focus ring to a reasonable range otherwise the autofocus hunts and gives up.

Samy

BTW, Jose and Rafael, you folks come up with great vistas, the scenery is always enjoyable!

Quite a contraption in the snow Ronny. And if I was there I would also be interested in all those neat places to visit within driveable distance!!

We had this discussion some time ago and it was decided back then that it was acceptable since the main lens was MF. Correct me if i'm wrong about this Curtis.

For these I simply used photomerge in CS6 - when it can assemble a pano it does a great job, when it can't if fails miserably. When this happens I use PTGUI Pro - rarely can it not make a pano, but it's a bit more work. Never had a pano that I could not make using one or the other.
