Thats a beautiful lens Laura. With your love of shooting airplanes love is always better. And if I'm not mistaken, the TC-201 will work with the lens as well. I've mounted it on the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF and it performed beautifully. Have fun!

Thought I'd try my hand with some MF lenses at a BB game...

200mm f4.0 AI or 28 f2.8 AIS with D700

Turns out when you are not absolutely in the thick of the action it's not impossible to use MF with some prefocusing and follow focusing. Also, at that distance the DOF at f4 has some forgiveness, I mainly judged by eye since during action since I did not want to look away from the screen to check the green dot in the viewfinder.

Not as artistic as some of the recent posts from everyone here, but thought I'd share anyway. Something

Great shots Ray. Well done following the motion!

I too lament the 9 lens limit - it would have been trivial to make it 50 or some huge number like that!
They probably just want us to buy new shiny AF lenses instead . . .


100 would be more like it, they should make a D800M, manual focus only, no AF modules or motors, replaceable screens, should accept F/F2 screens.

A downpayment on today's work with Nikki. As one would expect, at least part of the visit would involve San Francisco Bay, vistas of San Francisco and a fresh look at the Golden Gate bridge. That all happened today. Here is a panorama, four shots, hand held taken from the vista point on the northern edge of the bridge. I've never visited that location before. This is 1600 pixels wide but is a relatively small file so hopefully no one will experience too much pain...


This is where I live folks... I'm one lucky fellow.

And one more of Nikki checking out the Golden Gate bridge... also shot with the 35 f/2 O AI'd, which is a very sweet lens beautifully made.

I picked this 35mm F2 O up yesterday from the original owner who is in his 80's. He said he probably used it 10 times before he had it AI converted along with his 55 1.2 After it was converted he remembered using it twice. He much preferred the 55 which had a fair amount of wear but the glass on it too was pristine. The 35 was in a little leather case and that is where it has sat. I already have the 35 -O and the 35 F2 AI-S and I see little difference in them. I took

Ron, I have the 35mm 2.0 ais and your non-ai is far prettier. The 28mm 3.5 is a great find in this shape.

Jose, the 'bullet' holes in Pompei's walls are most impressive, no wonder the Roman empire grew so large.

Jeff, is that San Jacinto at the end of the desert road? with Santa Rosa on the left? Love the perspective of the 180mm on this road.

Tony and Kevin (and Curtis), Crack addicts do not worry about money, neither should we.

Chuong, great house fisheye, let the horizon be creatively tilted regardless of Leighton's built in spirit bubble level.

Ray, great D600 shots

Tony, nice Nikki Corona images

Mark, great teleferico shot, I thought it tilted but then found the horizon at the top of the tram cars.

Curtis, good work with Nikki, love the bay, my second home

John, thanks for the 400mm comparisons

Great eye Ronny

Dean, great street eye

Ray, excellent use of the 200, 4.0

Another panorama with Nikki, this is five vertical shots taken from the top of the Marin Headlands looking down over the Golden Gate bridge toward San Francisco. I've shot from this location before but I wanted to give Nikki a chance to shine... she did... Again, 1600 pixels wide.


Photoshop is pretty amazing!

Oops! This was shot with the 35 f/2 O AI'd... my bad...

Both shot with the 50mm f1.2 at f/8.0



My parents old house is in the direction of this picture. If there were still there, this was very similar to the view they had out of their back patio. Nice!

An old friend stopped over this afternoon. Somehow he was given a camera bag with a bunch of gear. He passed it on to me. The only thing that caught my eye was a 50mm f/1.4 Nikon lens. Looks like it is an oldie, from http://www.photosynthesis.co.nz/nikon/serialno.html

50/1.4 S Auto NKJ LMIJ 5- 5 screws, wider focus ring, Ai kit 7 532011 532070 - 635350 103340 Jan 67 - 1968

It's not an Ai but it is in kinda nice shape. THe rear glass is filthy. THe front glass looks good. I don't see any internal mold or dust.

The most interesting things are the filter

Does the camera work? I am interested in that...

Next Friday I will be at this very spot shooting probably my largest panorama of the bridge. If my math is right, I will have around 45 images that span nearly the same framing. (three rows, 15 images per row)

Reverse macro with my Series E 50mm f/1.8 @ f/8 (EXIF can't read a reverse mounted lens). Also used my SB15 Flash (its older than the lens, but still works great!) Intended to use it in the Weekly Assignments contest (which is shallow DOF) but I don't have a membership...sigh... I was shooting the f/1.8 lens from my old 8mm movie camera. The DOF here spans only the text...

Love this shot Kevin... very nice work. When we get close, all sorts of interesting things can happen. Well done.

And I am not ignoring your PM. I've been a bit preoccupied the last few days with the arrival of Nikki. I will get back to you. Enjoy the rest of your weekend...

Here's one with the 400/5.6 ED AI and a context shot with the 16/3.5 AI. Wish I had a 400/2.8 or a 400/4 or a 500/4 . . .

Time for bed and warm up a bit!

I'm sure you haven't missed the pristine copy now on the Buy and Sell board... and yes, that is a real commitment, but for a stellar lens...


Yep, I saw it this morning . . . . the only piece of photo gear that I've bought that is more expensive that this is my D800 and I knew that was going to be a great purchase, but that much on a single prime lens (well I do have the 70-200/2.8 VR II) is a tough one. AND it's too big to hide in my office away from my wife's suspicious eyes when that big big box would show up at the door.

As usual, love what you're doing with Nikki Curtis!

Of course I had a lot of time on my hands waiting for PanSTARRS to show, so I took these just after sunset.

The light was very nice and pretty dynamic . . .

WOW Curtis, Nikki or not this is fantastic! I've made it my desktop. I love what you've been showing us with Nikki. She is one capable chunk of metal in the right hands such as your's. Now....how about some iconic SF street cars?
