Upload & Sell: On
Glad to see you active again Curtis. It's a wonderful thing you have curated here, and even as some of the original crew step out for a while, things keep chugging along just fine. It speaks to the fun of using MF glass, and the fine collection of people who drop by to chat about it. I hope to one day get back to more frequent visits to the thread, but thesis writing and Margot are keeping me very busy...
Welcome to the thread Todd, glad you got your lens issue figured out! The 105mm f/1.8 is a very special lens, and I don't find it too out of control wide open (though the f/2.5 is of course already quite excellent wide open). In either case you can't go wrong with the manual focus NIKKORs at 105mm!
Speaking of, here's a shot with the 105mm f/1.8 AI-s at f/4, through the window of an art gallery on Queen St West in Toronto.

Philip, good to see you again. I love this image, the subject matter, composition and post work are all spot on!
