I don't have much to show since all my images from the weekend are sitting in a little cylindrical canister waiting to be processed. But I did find some MF-related images on my cell phone.

First one shows my lumbar bag - in it is:
16/3.5 AI
50/1.2 AIS
135/3.5 AIS
400/5.6 ED AI
FE2
D800
Lunch

Though I lugged all that to the beach I only used the 135/2 and FE2.

The second makes me so proud! One of my girls hard at work with the D800 and 50/1.2 AIS . . . .

Congrats Avi - show us a picture of your newest lens sometime. What condition did it end up being in?

John


It was in decent condition. I haven't had a chance to take a picture of it yet, but I shall by the end of the week.

Congrats Avi, there's a few on here that rave about this lens, and I can see why.


Yeah, if I can get the hang of the long focal length, it does its job pretty well.

Although laundry beckons, a Skype conversation with Leighton prompted me to pull out the 500 Reflex which I mounted on the camera after our call ended and took a couple of shots from my doorway. I had the PK-13 on the camera with the 80-200 f/4.5 AI so decided to shoot with it... inspired by Peter whose work with the 500 is posted above. Not as bitingly sharp as conventional Nikkors, but not too bad for hand held... leaning on the door frame to be precise.

I promise to stop with the white blossom shots, but they are just outside my

As long as we don't get a self portrait in your long johns we don't mind what you wear, Curtis

I like the pics too. One good thing abouit the 500 is the absenxe of CA.

Peter, thanks! No, not a typo - I shoot a lot. My D200 (loved it as a companion for a D2H) had 150.000 clicks on it, now it belongs to my talented sister who continues to squeeze fine images out of this fine camera (it was never serviced, just like the D700). My D7000 is a bit over 99.000 actuations right now and maybe I will break the 100k tomorrow evening (the local soccer club will try to break a series of 123 days without a victory :-).

Here's one of the images from the planned 266.666-clicks-celebration, that didn't turned out

Georg - I think that's a great image. I still can't get over the total number of clicks you have. Are you sure that camera wasn't hybridised with a Schmeisser?

Thanks for commenting too. I think you would have a lot of fun with the 500mm which isn't fussy at longer range.

Right now, they're saying it's a sprain. I was planning on getting out this week and doing some shooting, but now I've got to stay off my feet, and the open toe shoe isn't going to be very good in the 6-8 inches of snow that's due here...

Thanks John and Georg.




Ow, I kicked a step with my little toe 2 years ago and just looking at that makes my stomach twitch.. Hope you're up and about soon.

Was out with the D3s and the Nikkor 500mm /4 P ED IF last weekend for the Iditarod. Everyone except the girl is looking at the musher. She's the only one watching the athletes.

D3s - Nikkor 500mm /4 P ED IF - ISO 1600 - 1/4000 - /8 - tripod

I will be using this to look for Comet PanSTARRS in the next week or so.

Welcome Mike. You're the first person from Alaska to stop by this thread. You're shooting with a much prized lens. I'd love to see some of your shots of the night sky. Stop by again.

Welcome back Mike. Nice to see daytime shots too although the aurora images blew me away. You must have posted while Curtis was playing hooky

Something tells me there must nbe some awesome wildlife images in your portfolio with that lens.

Oh man you're not helping my 500/4 AI-P lust . . .

The repaired one for $2k is still available locally and the guy might let me shoot with it a bit first . .

As I'm seriously considering either a D7000 or a D7100 it strikes me that i may have to buy a new computer as well! Right now I have a PC with 1.6gig RAM and plenty of spare disc capacity.

For those of you who have converted and are tech challenged as I am, how did the change from 10 MP to 16 or 24 MP affect your processing times?

Thanks for input.
