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


The scalloped ring is a joy to use and looks like more durable than the rubber rings.


Hah! A lens that's older than me! I wish I still worked that well!

Hi guys and gals. I wonder if I could ask for a little advice?

I sold my 20mm f/2.8 MF lens on eBay. The buyer is having trouble getting the lens to communicate with the camera (a D600).


Hi Monty, I get the lens yesterday, looks beautiful, thank you.
I have a Nikon D600 and when I installed the lens in my camera shows f--.
You stated to used this lens in a same camera, I fix the information on the non cpu lens menu, but the same message come up.( f--)
Is anything that I need to ajust in the camera to let it lens work?
I really appreciate if you get back to me.


My suggestion was to reseat the lens. Take it off and put it back on. If that doesn't work then clean the contacts on the camera and lens. I cannot think of what else the problem might be?

Any thoughts?

Thanks
Monty

This will get me in trouble as it has no photographic merit of any sort.

D3 with 28mm 2.0 ais, just received my new top for the C3:

Here is the old top, ready for the trash, as soon as I can get the new one on. Getting the old one off was easy and the frame is in great condition, this being a California rust free car.

And the topless car, waiting - will show you the end result. Half the work will be cleaning the frame to perfection.

Beat me to it, that is the exact answer. When I got my first MF lens, I saw this and was super confused to what that meant.

I didn't use it. It's a good lens but not a magic one. The 35 1.4 Distagon is magic with a lot of character but costs much money and 35 is not my favorite FL.

Man, you sure do use that 180mm like you have been using it all your life. Great shots, especially Nitro.

MF lenses don't "communicate" with DSLR bodies since they don't have electrical contacts. With the non-CPU register you can tell the camera how to interpret movement of the aperture ring by telling the camera the widest aperture. This permits the camera to meter properly. There is no EXIF data collected, though Lightroom will not both the focal length specified in the non-CPU register, the aperture selected and the corresponding shutter speed selected by the camera based on the aperture. I'm afraid your buyer will have to learn how to enter the lens in the non-CPU register and work with the lack of EXIF data. I deal with that through a naming convention that identified the lens in the file name.

When you speak with him tell him about this thread. Doubtless folks hanging out here can offer support and answer questions.

Nice to see you name on the thread Monty. Hope you're well and enjoying your new toys.

Day late and a dollar short I see...

That's great Monty, but we'd rather have you with that lens and the rest of your MF kit sharing a little love with the rest of us. I imagine what I'm seeing in your profile is no longer accurate, at least when it relates to your MF lenses. I see you AF toys listed. I trust you're enjoying using those two well regarded lenses. They're monsters, of course. I can't help but wonder what the folks at Webex must feel when you point a bazooka at them...

Don't forget, if you ever get pored just pressing the shutter button, we'll be hear working hard with the fingers of our left hands...

From today, a few shots taken with the 180 f/2.8 AI-s and the 50 f/1.2 AI-s. First two with the 180, the second two with the 50. Spring is definitely here. These were all taken at China Camp along the edge of the San Pablo Bay which is the northernmost portion of what is generally considering San Francisco Bay.

I was just about to put my 105 2.5 P on my D600. Great minds
Terrific shot
