I have a question that you all may know. I have the above two lenses. The older one is beautiful, but the front and rear elements have seen better days. The other one is OK, but the glass is great. Does anyone know if I can take the elements from the newer lens and put them into the older lens, make a hybrid of sorts?

(This is a serious question, I don't like how the newer lens feels, its very gritty and the element moves around a lot)


Short answer is nope! Different animals

Samy, outstanding Baltimore series + bokeh playing + deer capture;

Jeff, very special "Green Rock" scenario;

Mark, loved the lonely chair.

Once again amazing Jose. Quite an advanced society and your photos make me think about the chaos of the fateful day.

Samy, I like this very much. Be careful not to stir up those guys from below the Mason Dixon Line.

Thank you everyone for the comments on the frozen construction equipment.

For anyone with a current bout of NMFAS, a nice looking 28 2.8 ais just came up on the BS board.

I thought you may get a kick out of this: My D3 and D800 are very clean cameras, inside that is, the D3 needed several sensor cleanings when new, but it no longer needs any, I am very careful changing lenses, blowing the new lens clean before changing and never doing it in a dusty environment. I blow the sensor once in a while with canned air, which I would not recommend, but it works for me.

My D800 has simply been very clean since new, I have sensor cleaning turned off and only run the built in cleaning once in a couple of months, when I see a Little dust at f16 or higher.

Just cleaned the D3 by blowing canned air and it is perfect, the D800 was stubbornly refusing to release a few specs with built in cleaning and canned air. While downloading samples I forgot the cable was connected to the camera and dropped it about four feet, luckily onto padded carpet.

The shade took the hit, an HN24, it was mounted on a 62-52mm adapter on the 50mm 1.2. The shade was very bent and the adapter is now useless. Nothing else seemed bent or damaged.I was very worried and rushed out to test the camera at 1.2.

Happy to report the camera and lens are still perfectly good, the field is as flat as it ever was, all corners perform the same with the 50mm at 1.2. Best test I know for this.

The kicker is that the hit from the fall left the sensor perfectly clean!!


An accidental cleaning by Rafael CA, on Flickr

And the lens and camera perfectly aligned at 1.2, there is a fair amount of natural fog in this shot


After the fall at 1.2 by Rafael CA, on Flickr

I have told you before how sharp the 50mm is at 1.2, and that mine cannot be focused fully open with the indicator lights. Here is a crop, again with fog. 100% on Flickr.

Thanks guys for the comments on the green rock shot.

Samy, I really like the wall and cannon.

Rafael, In addition to your beautiful color photos, the Zapata b&w is a very fine composition.

Kevin, great flowers.

Mark, beautiful snow and mountain shots, and I really like the chair.

Philippe, beautiful colors and composition on the Orchestre poster.

Jose, fascinating shots of Pompeii plumbing.

Thanks Ray and Jeff.

Just a little break from Pompeii, this is one of the firsts shots with a unusual couple:
a ~1963/1964 made Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 P Sonnar with a 2012 made D600:

Late afternoon contrasty sky x clouds at neighbour's buildings:

Nikon D600 + Nikkor-P 105mm f/2.5 hand held, ISO 200, f/8 at 1/250s.
The scalloped ring is a joy to use and looks like more durable than the rubber rings.

Love it! I am digging the old design too. I have one workable one (the 135 I posted pics of earlier) and it feels so much more substantial than the newer glass.
