I am more than likely going to be selling off my 80-200mm f/4.5 AI. With the exception of one set of shots, I have not used its full reach at all. I play in the 80-120 range... Optically its perfect, aperture is oil free on the blades, no fungus. Like all the others of its kind, it has zoom creep. It hasn't been an issue for me as I hand hold most of the time. If it was faster, I would probably keep it. Figure I would let you all have first crack at it. Letting it go cheap.

Here is a link to my Flickr page for the lens, will get shots of the lens itself this weekend: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjDvJshz (I use the short link as FM forum doesn't like the @ in the long link)

Don't recall seeing much output from you recently, but love the two in the musuem(?).

Trying to fulfil Leighton's wishes, to see more of life around me, the streets
This is taken in my hometown, a lil' town called Ipoh in Malaysia; at the dingy and dimly lit wet market (thought it was perfect, taking over Dean's duties heh heh)
I haven't been here for at least ten years and it hasn't changed nary a bit - just like I remembered it when I was a kid
Turned around and caught this old man walking through the lanes, surrounded by dried goods (scallops, fish, shellfish, vegetables, peanuts, etc - essential Cantonese culinary ingredients)



Count me in on these wishes too. Like the wet market shot very much.

Leighton, love the faraway fence and the hills in the back. The middle one's my favorite! Hope your foot survived the battles with the snow.

Philippe, superb captures of that person from two very different perspectives.

A bit of talk about the 500 F4P here, so I am reposting couple pics I found from fall last year. Its a heavy and cumbersome beast, but the sharpness of the image is outstanding.

Ron, very nice always to see your DIYs.

Jeff, wow, just your patience in commenting on every post is commendable. Thanks for pulling all those comments together! Often I run out of time to go all that far back.

Peter, great images from your outing. I like that wooden walkway.

Curtis, nice story and pic of that "castle in the woods".

Chin, very interesting peek through the market aisle. Love to see views from all around the world.

Ronny, great shots of your dog again! But I think Reagan wants different subjects for your 180

Mike in AK, wow, a grizzly! Hope to see more from scenic Alaska.
There was on the web a few pictures maybe a year ago of a photographer who had his long lens on a tripod and came across a grizzly (I think Yellowstone). The guy backed off and the bear pushed the 10K equipment over, and stomped on it. He had another camera on his shoulder I guess so he got those pics.

Leighton, gorgeous snow photos! I'm having trouble picking a favorite.

Philippe, very nice shots.

Samy, great birds.

I've been feeling a little rusty this week so this one kinda matches the mood. Cheers, Jeff.

Nice Jeff - good to see some good ol' rust images every once in a while. A topic that is a personal favorite of mine . . . but I don't get enough time to exploit the rusty stuff around here.

Philippe, the images with the 28 & the 85HC are completely outstanding.

Leighton, love your wonderful snowy landscapes! Personal favorite is the second shot - beautiful B&W! Winter will come back soon over here, hopefully the snow will last for a few days ;-)

So much for now, will come back tomorrow.

Very cool mosaic! It's amazing that ANYTHING survived that eruption.

Thank you Tony!

Two more mosaics to you:


Mosaic at Pompeii house entrance (2) by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd hand held through iron grid, ISO 800, f/8 at 1/200s.
It looks like a wrestling fight. ~20% cropped.



Mosaic at a Pompeii house entrance (4) by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd hand held through iron grid, ISO 250, f/8 at 1/800s.
It looks like a fish (?) being pursued by a mytical creature (1/2 dragon, 1/2 snake??). ~35% cropped.
This, like the first of the dog, needs a washing of the floor to remove dirt.

Thanks Curtis for the help about the SN;

Thanks Jeff and Peter for the comments;

Samy, great details on the birds;

Leighton, loved your snow set;

Ray, welcome to the club of D600 + D7000 owners, I am one of them. Probably at the end of the year I will upgrade from D7000 to D7100 (since the D400 never materializes!).

Very nice Philippe, my kind of shots - dark shadowed hallways
Speaking of which, haven't heard from Don in a while

Leighton, I like the contrast, that it's seemingly reversed - the ground white and the skies dark
Am curious though, are the farmhouses white too or is that a result of a colour filter conversion
Oh and I saw the hundreds of chicks, I'd have preferred to keep the boot on

Thanks guys. Was perhaps a bit too ambitious with ISO 400 film to go wandering around the dark recesses of the market. Quite a few blurred out images either from user error or scene mismatch

That said, I love the film look, especially for streets and casual but can't quite justify the cost of developing and scanning (not to mention the weight from toting two cameras). The grains and the tones are just lovely for the scenes that I want them for; no sharpening too. Perhaps I need to relook at Silver Efex for their film effects

Here's the fish corner. I cringed at seeing so many sharks on the tables.
Funny, I never really remembered seeing those in such number when I was young. Was an extraordinary occasion if there was even one.
Now, sheesh, nurse sharks, even black tip reef sharks are for sale. And worse, tiny ones only 6-7 inches long. Why bother, who'd eat that? Bleah. Rant over.

Actually...We just got power back a couple of hours ago, we've been on the generator. The village didn't loose power so we were able to have an internet connection. We went for photo drive, and to get gas for the generator, and when we got home, it was on! You don't know how much you miss things until they're gone.

Here's few from the drive, all taken with the 50-135mm.

Oh, and I have been "liberated" from the boot, so-far-so-good!


Very nice set of images Leighton. Glad to hear you are back on your feet.
