Oh man, If I had to live in the U.S. I would sure more to where you are John. Just incredibly stunningly amazing. Although perhaps I wouldn't as I know I couldn't compete with your great talent in taking such beautiful images.

Thanks for the comments, gentlemen.

It's not that I'm unaware of the iso requirements merely not thinking of the basics that I learned 40 years ago that I find irritating. Typically one has the camera on a tripod, the image is sharp in the viewfinder and using "aperture" rather than "manual", everything looks great until a week later when you process the shot.

I'm also fighting off the D7000 "A S", Curtis, so get thee behind me!


Peter I love the D200. I used mine for over 6 years (and still do occasionally) and it went through everything I could throw at it - on horseback through the surf, in the rain at rugby matches, in -20C (about 0F) at night (Battery life was not long!) and dropped numerous times. I love the colour rendition in this camera but of course the High ISO noise is a drawback.

Not sure what you can do to overcome years of habit of being careful of the number of shots due to being used to the limited qty of film. Perhaps you could designate an hour where you just decide to see how many shots you can take and go for broke, although of course at the end of the day it's not how many photos you take but how many you're happy with that counts.

Don't know whether to damn Phillippe - or thank him. He forced me to buy the 24mm PCE then he returned it and moved on....and here I am still stuck on it.

A couple of shots taken this afternoon with the 135 f/2 AI-s with the PK-13 extension tube attached. The first is shot at f/8, the second at f/4... same plant but different clusters of blossoms. The first has an adjacent balustrade and the second an adjacent house.

That combination just destroys the background, nice!

Thanks Scott, someone else mentioned the doors to me as well. Maybe I'll hobble out to get something.

This is a huge and popular thread (although I think the pictures are repeated too many times).

I still use MF lenses from when I started photography in the late sixties. They are wonderful. Could we make a compilation of what are the best MF lenses in your opinion. I apologize if this has been compiled before.
Saba


Welcome Saba, you're right, this has been done before. In my opinion, all of the Nikkor lenses (except a couple) are worth owning. Once you start shooting them it becomes really difficult to pick favorites. And what's one person's favorite might not be someone else's. Most people on here will pick the primes over any of the zooms, but not me. I happen to really like the 50-135mm f3.5 AI-s and I consider it one of my favorites. And as they say a lot on forums YMMV.

We talk about "desert island lenses" from time to time and among the ones I feel fairly confidant everyone would agree with are the...

28mm f2.8

50/55mm f1.2

85mm f1.4

105mm f2.5

135mm f/2

180mm f2.8 ED

300mm f4.5 ED

You'll notice that there are no zooms in this list!

Peter, nice series from your vacation
Curtis, always great flowers from the 135 and your lighting is always perfect
John, you probably get tired of me saying how great your mountain photos are. I guess here all I get to see is the flat ocean disappearing into the horizon

Just came back from a short vacation (and almost no internet!), so I load up the thread and just sat there on my seat, mind numbed at the number of pages added since!

I brought my FE2 and the 35/2 AI, finished up the whole roll. And found out yesterday, to my abject horror, that the guy who used to help dev and scan my stuff has left to work abroad. I've got a roll of Tri-X in the canister now and nowhere to go, bleah.

Thanks Mark, Reagan, Ray, Scott, and Leighton.

I don't consider myself to be that good of a photographer - I just am good enough to take some OK images of a beautiful place I am lucky enough to live in.

If you want to see some great images of the Pacific North West head over to the Landscape forum and there are some guys that live around here that are WAAY better than I.

Ben - Nice series. I think the PCE's are tough to use and if I were in hypercritical mode, Customs House looks to me as if it's bigger at the top than the bottom. But that's an observation only.

But, talking of bottoms, I'm sure Reagan would have had a looooooong lens at the town hall steps

Hi gang, I'm getting back in the saddle after a "little" retina repair. Beautiful photos posted over the past week, too many to comment individually, but I wanted to highlight the great snow shots from John, Scott and Georg. I've always found snow to be a tough subject and you guys are really nailing it.

Curtis, gorgeous beach series. Ray, beautiful birds and Leighton I love your shot of the artist's painting of Barbara's photo of the lambs!

Peter, thanks for your comment on the WA. I appreciate it!

Like the first one Peter. If you're thinking about a D7000, I'd wait until next week, Nikon may announce the replacement for that camera. Just for the record though, the D7000 is a great camera!
