I certainly know that feeling! Glad to see you got out for a little bit at least. I liked this one.

A bonus shot from the Series E 50mm... Played around with this one. I like how it turned out, what do you all think?

Nice set Kevin! This one was my favorite. Good job on the processing of the car shot.

Ray these are gorgeous. Are they cropped at all? The iris is excllent and the butterfly superb.

Love your close work with the D600 Ray. I'm not surprised that you'd find a new relationship with the 105 not that you're shooting FX. I own four lenses at that focal length, at least in part because I love it so much. Of course, NMFAS which has been much discussed of late, probably had something to do with it...

I visited a friend his morning and saw these flowers as I was leaving. I had to walk to my car to pick up my camera so I could take a few shots. I mounted the 135 f/2 AI-s, first

Beautiful image with tube.

I really like this one Ray. I too found that the 105 FL was like discovering a whole new lens, I just don't seem to get mine mounted enough.

I have to say I like the second one better. Looking forward to seeing SF from the ferry. What a nice friend.

Stunning. I really need to have one clear night when these are active down here. Loving the sights you're sharing, but I know this is something that's amazing when you see it for yourself.

I have not dug into the optical formula differences if any between the 20mm AIS, AF, and the AF-D. I use speedlights in i-TTL so the AF-D would be the best choice there. I do prefer to use AI, AIS lenses for the cold night work as I don't feel too bad when they frost over at -35°. The 24mm and 28mm and 35mm all have nasty distortion wide open that forces me to give up 2 stops to get pin point stars. Only the Noct is relatively distortion free at ƒ/1.2

I still have boat loads of MF Nikkors but

John, ours has been very less than cooperative, too, plus lugging camera gear around school along with my loaded backpack would probably be REALLY good exercise... but not when I have five flights of stairs to deal with before/after one class. Guess I will have to for summer semester though, since the Intro photography class (B&W and darkroom) is a class I chose to take, for me.

+2 Tubes are fun Ray, you need to find a set. Kenko, Nikon, or a set of compatible Vivitars like Curtis uses.

Very nice series Kevin. I do like your post-process work on the last image.
