Thanks Tony That's a center crop which eliminated the vignetting on the edges

Kevin and Mark I will post a few pics tomorrow of the required tools. Their are not that many and they are not that expensive.
Mark the screws get anodized or sometimes they even use loctite on them. Brute force is usually the answer but you need the best JIS screwdrivers you can find with the biggest handles. 000 for the fine screws like the aperture ring and most inside screws and 00 for the mount screws. You would cringe if you saw me working on a tough one. I hold the lens in my left palm and set the screwdriver

Wow. Thanks Ron. I think I might leave it to the professionals. I'd probably miss the screwdriver and hit the lens with the hammer. But It would be great if you could share that photo of the tools, if I can find a cheap couple of lenses to practice on it would be worth while to try.

Agreed, these look really good to me. The one above I think would look really nice framed.


+1 to the above.
There is a famous photographer (I just don't remember the name) who said something like "Compose a tight shot and when you're happy, step forward again"

Spring is in the air, my 180 2.8 ED ais is on the way, and I have the first of some outings coming up this weekend.

For this one I get to be on the spouse program (ain't retirement grand!) for a weekend at King's Mill in Williamsburg. Normally I play golf, but this winter has kept me away from the club, and I don't want to make my season debut at an expensive venue. So I will make pictures instead.

I plan to take the D700 and my new Tenba Messenger Small bag. Now, which lenses to take? I plan this

Hi David,

I'd try the 28, 85 and 180. I think for golf the 50 will be a neither here nor there focal length but the 85 should be good and the 180 will be fabulous.

Since you asked. And since I'm somewhat of a Nikon MF fanboy, I'd take the 28, 105, and 180!

I'm with Leighton... though I'd add the 50 f/1.2 to cover low light situations. 28, 50, 105 and 180 comes close to John's dictum that has each lens doubling the length of the one below. Those four are all great performers. Have fun David.

Thanks Leighton! I would be happy to come anywhere near the quality of stuff already produced with it. I will definitely give it a shot. (Ugh, that was bad.)

Ray, I love those flower shots... catching the bee is quite delicious. And yes, fast glass is a great pleasure, especially if you're a bokeh junky, which clearly you are. That, of course, is one of the fun things about shooting with tubes. You can be stopped down and STILL create luscious bokeh. This is wide open, but at f/4.5, bokeh brought to you via the PK-13 on the 80-200 f/4.5 AI.



Super, Curtis

Georg - the B&W's of the buildings are excellent and not too tightly framed at all. BTW was that reall 266000 clicks or was it a typo?

Well, about the only good thing to happen yesterday was that I received Nikki in the mail. After a really crappy night at work, I came home and attached the lens and played in the fog for a few minutes. It was a nice way to unwind and relax before heading off to bed. This is a 3 shot pano.

I won't have any serious time to spend with it until the weekend, but hopefully I will get to play around the shop tonight. Now, off to bed!

Lens tools-the basics! Eklund and Hozan drivers..The tips fail on the Eklund but the Hozan are indestructible but Hozan does not make 000 which is used for every screw inside the lens. That is a neoprene 52mm lens ring tool. You need one for each different size lens for taking off the front ring. The spanner wrench is for the retaining rings. Taken with the 28

Lying sideways is the 52mm Donut made out of Neoprene. The cutout allows it to fit over the front element but come in contact with the rings that hold the front element on. A little brute force downward and you can spin it off.. I forgot to mention the other black ring.. My trusty magnet. Most of the screws the magnetized driver works on. The lens mount screws are not steel so you have to be careful not to drop them. The magnetized driver keeps the little ones clinging to the driver until you can put them aside.(like the aperture ring ones)

Link to the donut! Micro tools sells some white ones they are junk.. Not hollowed out
