On another note, I am lowering my price on the 105 ƒ1.8 to $400, shipped. If it doesn't sell at that price, I will probably just end up keeping it.

Couldn't agree more. Wonderful shot Peter. I'll have to give that combination a go, though I'm hand holding so it might be a stretch.

In a way, this lens struggles in the market place because the 105 f/2.5 in all its different versions, is such an outstanding lens. It took me a year and a half with the 105 f/2.5 AI-s before I took the plunge with the f/1.8 version. I ended up liking the lens so much I bought a cleaner copy and passed my first copy on to another person then active on the thread. I now own three f/2.5 lenses a P, P.C. and AI-s but as much as I love them all, this faster lens is something special. I'll not be selling it.

Your price is excellent Tony. I hope we find a taker on this thread so we can continue to see photos from it. Good luck with the sale.

Here is a shot of a grizz in Denali last fall with the 500 P. It is a bit shakey as I was shooting on a towel on the hood of my Durango but the vehicle was shaking because my wildlife spotter was busy trying to hide under the front seat.

Gorgeous photo. Wow, "semi-hand held" !?

Is Fisheye 16mm f3.5 AI better than the 16mm f2.8 AI ?

Thank you Reagan, Georg, Tony, Curtis, Samy and Rafael for the kind words.

Laura, hope your recover be quick and as painless as possible.

Bjorn Rorslett rates the f/3.5 a bit higher...


Bjorn Rorslett's Review of Fisheye Lenses

John Hinkey in Seattle introduced us all to this particular lens and gradually a number of us followed. In fact, I bought John's first copy of the lens. He subsequently bought two more which he has kept. Everyone who has used the lens has become a fan. There were only a bit less than 8,000 of the f/3.5 lenses made and of those a smaller number with the AI conversion suitable for modern DSLR cameras. The f/2.8 comes in close to thirty thousand lenses, and none of those were pre-AI. I doubt you would lose a great deal by going with the f/2.8. The f/3.5 has become a bit of a holy grail for folks on this thread.

I have some interest in this lens, but the prices asked when available are too much for me!

Interesting Jose. I believe I saw a special on PBS once about the mosaic's at Pompeii. If memory serves me right, some of them were in pristine condition.

Chuong had the lens Jose. I'm not certain whether he still owns it but he has been known to turn over lenses in his kit. He has been doing a bit of selling of late and if he has it he might be willing to part with it. He's posted some lovely shots taken with that lens. When Dean in Hong Kong tried it he wasn't happy with it. No doubt it is an interesting lens.

I wonder whether anyone here bought this lens, that just sold on E-Bay.







I put in a bid, though I already own this version of the 105, thinking I might upgrade to a mint copy. But others clearly felt the same way since I wasn't close to the top bidder who paid $154.10 for the lens. It really is an outstanding performer...

The travails of a company owner no doubt. I think Dean works very hard, then plays hard. We see him when he's on holiday with his wife visiting exotic places. I trust he'll be back when time permits.

For sure Leighton, there are better mosaics

see here
http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cave_canem

but I was unfortunate because the houses were closed during my visits at Pompeii and the iron grids prevented good shots

These mosaics were a way to tell "be carefull with the dog"
