Ben, I didn't comment on your recent set of images, but I was quite taken with them as well... especially the woman passing with the delicious lighting. I'm glad you're happy with the major investment you made for that PC-E lens. They remain a bit rich for my pocket book, but I always enjoying seeing what they produce. I look forward to your experimentation with that lens. Have fun!

I like the strong light too coming from above - giving her a bit of glow. (Am I seeing some green fringing too Philip?)

Thanks Curtis and Ben! Yes, the 105mm f/1.8 AI-s is prone to LoCA wide open, with some obvious green fringing about strongly backlit subjects behind the focal plane. Strangely I don't often shoot scenes where the corresponding purple is also observed in front of the focal plane, but rest assured, it too is around. Disappears when stopped down, but what's the fun in stopping a lens down?

Rafael, thanks for posting that comparison link for the 5.8cm 1.4S. Excellent review against the modern 50 1.4G. It seems to lag behind mainly in terms of edge performance and coma, after six decades. Not bad at all.

http://lenstip.com/114.11-article-50_years_of_Nikon_F-mount_%E2%80%93_Nikkor-S_5.8_cm_f_1.4_vs._Nikkor_AF-S_50_mm_f_1.4G_Summary.html

An interesting page to look at for various versions of the 5.8cm and 50mm 1.4 lenses is here:

http://destoutz.ch/lenses_standard_50mm_f1.4.html

Based on the serial #s there, I am able to estimate my copy of the 50 1.4S was produced late 1967 - early 1968.

One of the first photos with my 50 1.4 SC
My first AI lens now I see what they mean by a longer focus throw. I like the scalloped ring
Whether I like it better than the 50 1.8 ai-s remains to be seem but one will have to go
A little rust with it

I have one AI lens and I'm not too keen with it. I believe I'll stick to the AI-s versions. Good bokeh play by the way.

Rafael, at first I hated this lens. Didn't think it compared to the 28 2.8 or the 50 f2 but I've become a convert if only for convenience when travelling - and it cost me about $70!

It is about what works for ourselves, for me the longer rotation of the non-ai, k and ai focusing rings is better than the loose short rotation ais norm. Prefer the added drag and precision.

Fasnacht hit Winterthur today and with it the traditional Guggenmusik parade.

All taken with the 180mm and the 35-70mm which was a very handy lens in the circumstances.

Well Monty, that is one hell of a lens, one of the best Nikon made. But it is quite big, not something many people will appreciate getting shoved in their faces. On the other hand, it is so fast that you will probably get a focused shot before they have time to 'salute' you.

Mark, what a fun event. Out of the set, I am most enthralled with the shot of the drummer with the 180.

Series E 28mm... Took this shot intending it to be in B/W. Thoughts?

Thank you all for your kind comments on my concert series. Now for something completely different: three shots with the 20mm/3.5 and one with the 28mm/3.5 PC (unshifted). Shots taken a week ago during a walk with my wife passing Durgerdam, just north of Amsterdam. My first outing with the shift lens; it was freezing cold and I didn't want my wife to put up with me figuring out how the shift works.

Thanks everyone for your great comments about me. Much appreciated
No MF lenses are sold yet.

Who knows, I may keep everything. Although my wife would have a HUGE fit

Rafael and Peter you guys are lucky. My 28-45 was a dog. It was my first 72mm zoom. When Peter said he was getting one I really was hoping it would not disappoint him,. Obviously it has not.
