Ahh... I still love them. I'm glad you're enjoying the D600. You might stick around for awhile...

Yea, I will be here a while. Ray is trying to convince me that I need a 85 1.4 but I really like the 105 and they are awful close in FL

I wasn't sure at first but now I am glad I switched cameras

Peter, I'd be very interested in what you think about the Yongnuo flash triggers. Give us a little run down once you've had the chance to use them a bit, thanks!

Sorry, I can't help you with the 20mm question.

I have 2 sets of the 603's. I use them along with 2 YN-560 II flashes at my wedding receptions. They sync up to 1/250th, but I will get the occasional black bar. I typically am shouting around 1/125th, so it is never an issue. The batteries last quite awhile and I haven't had any issue with range in the venues. Calumet sells a dome diffuser for the Canon 580 EXII that fits perfectly for $14.

Ray wasn't trying to "convince" you to buy the 85mm. I said if you did buy it you would probably sell the 105

A friend had surgery yesterday in San Francisco. I drove him there very early yesterday and thought it might be fun to take some camera gear. Unfortunately, it was raining yesterday. But today when I picked him up weather was accommodating. Here is a photo folks will remember from last year taken with the 35 f/1.4 AI-s. Tony was kind enough to print a large copy of this though I don't know where I'll hang it. What follows is a shot I took today from approximately the same location with a 28 f/3.5 H AI'd.

Resumed checking out the 35mm f2 OC. Both images wide open. The lens seems plenty sharp centrally at f2. Checking out background rendition too. Haven't had the chance to look at smaller apertures yet.

Great light to work with there, Reagan.

Maybe try the Tudor home again when there's no trash can in front of it, and the cell phone is a Nikon with a Nikon lens attached?

Hi ddog, I think you'll like the D700. I've got it, along with a D3, and a couple D300s', D1h's, a D200, and a D1x, that I use for MF lenses, depending on my mood.

Just an update to thank you guys again for your guidance. Really wanted to go with the D600, but everywhere I looked I saw oil/dust and Nikon's aversion of the issue. Just did not want to go through the hassle.

So my little-used (under 1k actuations) D700 will be here early next week. Interesting that my ONLY lenses for it are Nikon MF, at this point. I had all of the best Canon zooms with my 7D, and frankly got bored with them. The X Pro1 or X100 will remain my travel cameras, but I envision the D700, with the 28

Then again, maybe not, since one's a lot lighter than the other, and fits easily in a pocket. BOTH are fun to have.

Ray, beautiful scene with the 35 1.4! Americo, nice pics, especially the kids, and good to see your daughter doing well.

Leighton, if polydactyl means too many claws I don't think so, although I should check again, maybe that's why there's so many scratches on furniture

Not too many ideas on what to do next since its the usual cold and wet outside, so I tried a comparison of the four normal lenses for wide open bokeh. Had been thinking about that test since Georg demoed that wonderful picture of the girl in the front and other kids out of

Fantastic test Samy. Thanks for sharing.
I think the 55/1.2 is the best, slightly better than the 50/1.2, but it is just MHO.

Been busy for a while, but I have seen a tremendous amount of awesome pictures on the thread, and many new people joining in. Welcome!
This week I went to a concert by Lonnie Liston Smith, a 72-year-old jazz musician who was persuaded to return from retirement by a band of enthousiastic young and very talented musicians.
Here are a few pictures, taken with the 135mm f2.0 ais and 180mm f2.8 ais on a D700:

I was a huge fan of the 85 when shooting Canon. The EF 85 f/1.2L was my favorite lens by far. When I came to Nikon one of the first lenses I bought was the 85 f/1.4D which I still own. It was some time before I picked up the 85 f/1.4 AI-s and by that time I'd discovered the pleasure of shooting with a 105. I started with the f/2.5 AI-s, then the f/1.8 AI-s and subsequently I added the f/2.5 P AI'd and the f/2.5 P.C. AI'd. The 85 f/1.4 AI-s is a wonderful lens but I don't intend to sell ANY of the 105mm lenses. Of course, I don't intend to sell the 85 f/2 AI-s either.

Ray is right, of course, that the 85 f/1.4 AI-s is a wonderful lens. If the spirit moves you Reagan, it would be a nice addition to your kit. Of course, it is not a cheap lens. You could add the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF for half the price of the 85. Actually, the possibilities are rather endless when it comes to these fine MF lenses...

Thank you Curtis. The 50mm 1.8 ais pancake came in handy as well, for this 11-shot panorama:

So glad you're still lurking around, Monty! I'm pretty sure I would have had a lot more keepers with my AF-S G 70-200/2.8 vrII, but using the manual focus primes is such a fine challenge. Now I am considering moving from a D700 to a D600 or D800. How are your experiences, going from a D600 to a D800?

I've been visiting this forum on and off for some time and decided it was time to post something. The first two images were taken this past June in the South Dakota Badlands with a 24/2.8 AIS, both are single image crops. The second two are of my cat Sargent and they were taken with a 105/2.5 AIS w/o, I love this lens!
