Love your quick humor Peter. Also loved the last set of images you shared. Fine work. Hope you're enjoying your summer. I'm looking forward to ours...


Thanks Curtis.

As far as summer goes remember Mark Twain's view of summer in San Francisco....

Ray, it looks like a great job on the lenses. What are the results like?

I need you here as I have an old Pentax S3 which has a microprism focusing screen that I would like to have adapted to fit the D200

I just spent an hour doing something I haven't been able to do in a very long time. Sit and enjoy the fine images on this board. I miss the conversation and the friendly banter about lenses. And miss being able to enjoy all of the great images you guys have made.

I can't even begin to comment on them but did want to congratulate Huddy on the upcoming addition to the family.


Keep up the good work guys, soon enough I may be back here posting images. I kept a few of my MF images over the winter, although bottled up safely put away.

My new to me 25-50 arrived today It is the nicest one I have had so far and this time I am pretty happy with the focus and zoom ring dampness
Slapped my 72-77 step up ring on it to try and avoid the Vignetting at 25mm all filters cause it to vignette at 25mm but I only use them when I go to the ocean

Reagan, if one day you (unlikely) think of selling this beauty, please put my name as the Nš 1 in the list

I need a metal hood for my 50 1.5 AIs, but I'm not real keen on the "snap in" HS-9 hood. I like the straight screw-in hoods on all my other Nikon MF lenses just fine.

Is there a known equivalent to the HS-9, either brand name or genereic, that screws in?

While we're on the subject of hoods, what's the trick to shoring up a loose hood on a 300 f/4.5 EDIF? Mine is quite loose. I'd be fine with just running some gaffer's tape along the barrel, but there seems to be no way to get a strip of tape

As Curtis has already pointed out, the best option is the HN-7, since its measurements are similar to the HS-9
In this link you can confirm that and search for other possible alternatives, as the HN-5:

Inspired by Ronny I had to shoot a few today with the 135 f/2 Ai-s. Taking it out of the cabinet I'm reminded first of the fact it is one heavy lens. Then I'm reminded of what a fine lens I came upon when I finally went shopping. It is gorgeous! Here are two photos of leaves near my cottage, the first taken wide open with the 135 f/2 AI-s, the second with the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF with both a PK-11A and PK-12 attached. The 300 was set at f/5.6,

Both great for me. I suppose at f/5.6 the 135/2 would deliver a busier bokeh than the 300/4.5.

New purchase! always wanted the 5cm 1:2.0 S, not the H, this is the very first 50mm for Nikon reflex cameras, cannot be factory ai converted, now I have every 50mm design, but the ais 1.4. These are the ebay photos. Not in my hands yet, will keep the 5.8cm good company.


Congrats Rafael, it looks like a beauty. Are you going to AI it?

Curtis, D600 allows me to manual focus better with my mf lenses again. Much better than the d7000. I tried using my 105 2.5, 180, and 50 series e that I still have, my keepers are not so bad. Giving me hope again.


Ferdi, this is the number one reason I went to the D600, to make it easier to focus, which it does very well.

Thank you Georg, Reagan, Peter and James for the kind comments.


Ray (Ohio), take a look at this site:

His setup has worked for me.
