Hi Leighton, foot's ok. Tried walking around the house yesterday without the shoe, still not ready yet. Thinking I might have to go back and have another x-ray done if I can't get a regular shoe on there by Friday.

How's yours doing?


Fair to middlin'

I would add: no 500, 600 or 800mm?
And no scalloped lens kit?

This is a shame!

Fantastic captures Sam. I liked the most the last one.

Such enablers, . I haven't missed those lenses yet, either. About the only thing I can think of to shoot with the 500 or 800 would be the bald eagles here. Maybe some planes in the air too

OH HEY, LOOK

Thanks Jose. The image you referenced was shot on March 12 at a 300 mm focal length using a zoom lens and not with the 500 mm f8 mirror lens.

My issue with the 500 mm is that the field is usually too narrow for astronomical objects to include a reference, and too short for a high resolution view of the comet. The view through the view finder is dark at f8 making it tough to ensure an accurate focus. I focused the lens on a distant point light source (maybe a street light) before searching for the dim comet. However, it is a good terrestrial lens if you don't have or want to spend the dollars on a fast, high quality refractor type lens that can cost more than 10X the price of the reflex lens.

If the clouds part during the next few days, and I have an opportunity, the next time I'll use either an 85 mm or a 200 mm AIS, or something in between, for a wider angle shot that includes the horizon.

Peter B - hard subject well done

Ronny - more top pics

Ray - I like the very wide angle images - how do you correct the distortion?

Jose - more excellent images

Kevin - nice start. Did you try exposing for the ambient and filling with flash also?

Sam - good comet shots

Laura - you've been hiding this treasure trove in the background while the boys have been showing off their toys!

Thank you Peter. I didn't alter any of the 16mm photos distortion wise. Some scenes just blend into a fish eye veiw and look quite natural.

Tell them Laura! From top to bottom your bunch is for handholding and not dragging around 3 legged sticks to support everything.

Quick comparison of the D600 vs D7000 at 6400 iso. I used the 50mm1.4 on the D600 and the 35mm 1.4 on the d7000 both at F8 1/100 and 1/125 respectively

I'm thinning out my herd just a little bit so a few lenses need to find new homes so I thought I would try to keep them in the thread before posting them in the B&S, CL, or fleabay. They are all in excellent shape optically, mechanically, and cosmetically, although the 300/2.8 has a little bit more wear on the mount and strap rings.
28/2 AI - $350 - The thought of selling this one makes me sore, but I'm really struggling to focus with any manual WA lenses, so I'm going to let it go.
50-135/3.5 AI-S - $130 - Great lens, but I just don't use it.
300/2.8 ED AI-S + Wimberley P40 plate - $1000- Another great lens, but with one baby here and another on the way, I've got things that I need to carry other than supertelephotos...

If anyone is interested, shoot me a PM. All of those prices include shipping.

And I'd be remiss if I didn't show some pictures too, all from the D700+50/1.2 AI-S

Eli just hanging around with some big and small aunts and uncles:


I've been shooting a lot of 1600 ISO HP5+ in my Leica lately, and I find the grain quite pleasant and unobjectionable. A fringe benefit of this is that I no longer have any qualms about shooting at 12,800 ISO (HI1) on my D700. There aren't many scenes that are too dim for handholdable exposure with 12,800 ISO and f/1.2 This is SOOC without any noise reduction. It looks fine at full resolution too.


Lastly, we're over halfway to having little Hudson number 2. We had quite the surprise when a very noticeable feature popped up on the ultrasound monitor. Turns out that our 2nd baby is going to be a boy rather than a girl!

Congrats on the baby, and hopefully you don't have to repaint the nursery again. Glad to see you're going to help carry babies and bags.

And I'm going to thin one lens out of my herd...

The duplicate 180 f/2.8 ED IF AI-S.

I want to keep it in "the family" so first preference goes to active posters here. PM me to discuss it.

Ray, excellent comparison.
D600 image looks cleaner than the D700.

At 6400 iso the D600 is very usable and wins hands down, however the D7000 is no slouch. With a little NR post photos process quite nicely. I can only imagine that the D7100 will be even better!
