Thanks Chuong, Tony and Laura.

Choung, in fact the second shot was not a crop, I used the short distance focusing of the Micro 55/3.5.

Continuing Pompeii's second day visit:
One of the best preserved defence towers.

D7000 + Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ais CPU'd hand held, ISO 400, f/8 at 1/1000s. ~15% cropped.


Wow, that does look like it's in pretty good shape. I don't suppose you were able to climb it?

Reagan, love the first shot above! Don't know what "Auto" means - back in the days it was probably just a cool marketing term (seriously, it might have something to do with the aperture-mechanism, but I'm not sure).


Reagan - I like the shots a lot. I think "auto" goes way back to the '60's when they introduced focusing through a wide open lens but the aperture closed to your choice when the mirror lifted. Other lenses of that vintage, e.g. my old Meyer-Lydith 30mm, were preset by getting the apertrure/shutter speed right then opening the aperture for focus before turning it back manually.

I've tried to get some sun-stars with the 20/3.5 Ais today, but had no luck. So here's a shot from sunday - playing with a 55/1.2 at it's minimum focusing distance. Amazing to my eyes how the fence melts away.

55/1.2 Ai wide open and at minimum focusing distance. The framing could have been better - too much concentration on the focus...


Very cool, Georg

Auto =Auto aperture, not preset. View at full aperture and 'automatically' close it down for the capture.


Much more eloquently put than mine - but it is early here!

I like the composition, personally. Very nice minimalist feel.

It is a little slow here tonight, so I took Nikki around the shop with the PK-13 attached trying to get some abstract close-ups. I even found a few flowers outside! Too bad it was extremely dark when I found them. Nothing that a tripod and almost 2 second exposure won't fix!

Then a couple of fishy shots around the pressroom. The first one makes me feel like I am on the tram ride at Universal Studios!

Don't worry Samy, Ben is prone to exaggeration. In fact, the first lens I bought after he trotted out his 55 f/1.2 S.C. AI'd was a 55 f/1.2 AI. It took me awhile to be seduced by his "charms..." But I got there eventually, first by selling the 55 to Matt, then finding as S.C. copy with the conversion kit. That took three weeks by itself. It was only after I'd used that lens for a time that I began looking for other pre-AI lenses. It is relatively easy to find those lenses, but only a few have the

Curtis - I like my version better.

It might have taken a bit longer to buy the first one (you being so fussy about the conversion and good 55 f1.2 SCs being fairly rare) - but once you got started it didn't take 3 weeks to buy the next 7 - in fact - if truth be told - even though I had a 12 month head start you soon overtook me. You bought the 105mm f2.5P, kept showing it off and eventually forced me to buy one too (love that one).

Actually Ive got to confess that the 24PCE is so good - that I'm now tempted by the 45PCE - it's way more than I want to spend and I haven't got anything left to sell....so I'm going to focus on the Zeiss 55 cause I know I'll never have the money for that.
