Badlands - nice - I have a few myself taken there in 1989, 50mm f1.8 AI on F3HP, probably Eltachrome 100, or Fuji RD100, who knows.

Dawn lighting after sleeping in my truck somewhere along the road in the park. Today some ranger would probably kick you out.







the one below was west of the Badlands, same day, same lens, same roll of film, definitely used a polarizer, again with 50mm f1.8







Very same place with the 28mm f3.5 I owned at the time - polarizer (vignetting)

Welcome Craig! You finally did it.

I can tell from the positive feedback, your post total and the date you signed up that, like me, you came to Fred Miranda primarily to buy and sell. That is not an unreasonable thing to have done given how active that particular board is on this site. I was here for about six years before I posted a photo anywhere on the thread. i don't think I commented on anything but the Buy and Sell board and rarely on the Forum and Miscellaneous board. That ALL changed when I made the switch from Canon to Nikon AND bought the 105 f/2.5 AI-s that started this whole adventure for me. Probably eight thousand of the posts now in my total have come on this and other MF lens appreciation threads I started. Yes, there are a few on the thread I started in the Macro World that might also strike your fancy,
Shooting With Tubes that highlights use of extension tubes with ALL lenses, though I only use them with MF Nikkors.

I'm glad you joined us finally and introduced us to your cat. We have a few cat fanciers on this thread and we often see feline friends appearing. And landscape photos also have a place here. Of course, with so many talented photographers active on this thread we some a bit of everything appearing. Enjoy yourself and join in the conversation. We definitely are having a great time with these lenses...

John, Thank you!
pbuke- nice images, hasn't changed in all these years.
Curtis thank you as well. My hunt for MF lenses has just begun, currently own the 24 2.8 AIS, 55 Micro 2.8 AIS, and the 105 2.5 AIS. I have the 300/4.5 AI in route.

Nice shots Craig! Always heard about the badlands and want to visit there. Welcome to the addiction. Your 300 is on my bucket list for lenses.

Curtis - great set and excellent conversions

Paul - excellent pics and great use of the light

Criag - welcome. 2 very nice images with 2 very good lenses.

Welcome Craig. And what debut images! I liked the most these two.
And remember the motto over here: "kit building is forever"

Fantastic images! If you like, the vignetting can be fixed easily in any good photo editor.

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.

Thanks for the input Tony. I ordered the 603's yesterday. There's been something I wanted to try for a while now that needed either a trigger or cable. If it works, I'll share it.

I like the reflection of the keys in the glasses the first. Your colors are always great.

Fantastic shots, although I think on this last one, I'd clone out the spotlight over his head, would be the only change I'd make.

Welcome, Craig, and yes, I'm partial to cats myself, and these badlands shots make me want to go there this summer too.

Can't wait to see the rest of these shots, Rafael. Now I'm seriously considering converting my dad's copy of the 50-300, as his is the 1970 version.

Reagan, I think you've found your groove. Do NOT sell this camera, repeat, do NOT sell this camera, it's definitely meant for you.

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
...Show more
Samy I think the clear winner here is the 50mm 1.4 There is so little difference between it and the 1.2"s that they are not worth 3 times the price!!!!
Thanks for the test I was really thinking about getting the 50mm 1.2
