Upload & Sell: On
Thanks Peter. She finally got named Moggy Nikki. She's now been spayed, hence the loss of fur at her neck where they shave to put the IV in
Laura - Love the building and the cats. What did you eventually call the stray? Thanks for the comments and, yes, I do need to shoot more!
Kevin, Ben, Rafael, Scott, Laura, Jeff - Amazing photos on the last couple of pages.
Peter, very interesting your DIY lens collar work.
He is, Leighton. I know I've posted a shot or two before of him with a lens next to him for comparison

Laura - Felix looks VERY well loved.
Georg, that is a beautiful door.
Speaking of doors - here's one shot today. Hope you like it, Leighton ;-)
door/gateway to the pulpit in one of the old churches here - D3s, 55/1.2 at f/2
Thanks Georg, that was shot through tinted windows at school.
Laura, very nice play with the shapes of the buildings!
THUD. Monty, it is possible to have both and dabble in both sides. I hope you haven't sold off that 85, either, it was magic in your hands. When I'm out and about, I carry both AF and MF in my bag, and there haven't been any explosions in there.
Good morning everyone. Some of you may remember me. I'm the guy that turns all of the color photos into black and white
Well, recently I purchased a D800 and one of those evil AF lenses. Sorry I've been having a lot of fun with it. Maybe too much fun. I plan on getting another one. My beautiful MF lenses are just sitting around doing nothing. I've decided to sell them. Before I put them on eBay I thought I offer them to you people. I'll sell them for what I paid plus $10 shipping on each lens.
A few weeks on full time should help cover the cost of your new lens lust without selling these off.
THe worst part of all this is that I no longer feel a part of this thread. I've posted in a few other threads, but none compare to the friendship I've found here! I'll stay in touch...
Just because the lenses are for sale doesn't mean they will sell. And yes, I'll continue to post....
I've very impulsive. Like a light switch. On then off then back on again. In a year or so I'll probably be buying them all over again
You could go both ways.. AF and MF, sell the car, and you'll have more free money for lenses
Bad thing about taking vintage cars out for a spin is they get filthy in about 5 min and you spend a few hours cleaning them
Best of luck to to you Monty
I hear the AF calling me again. I should have never borrowed one.
It's like a voice I can hear right in my ear saying SELL SOMETHING
Thanks Ray, the windows at school are tinted a bit too, so that helped with exposure.
Laura what a sharp shot at 1.4 none the less. That 85mm is amazing!
Add laser pointer, and see what happens
But then I'm more a cat person and as we see from Laura's efforts, cats don't move too quickly...
Beautiful German Shepard, Ronny.

The 105mm f/1.8 AI-s rarely disappoints when I use it for portraiture. It also helps having such a beautiful subject. Margot turned 5 months old a couple of days ago, and is really coming into herself. Here she is having some tummy time, tracking the cat walking across the room. Wide open at f/1.8, near the minimum focus.

At 30 pounds, Samy, he is definitely substantial. I don't get in his way if he gets "the crazies" and starts running around in the house.
Laura, Felix is what I call a substantial cat, and photogenic at all apertures with the 85 1.4 Looks like its saying "why bother to get up, just move my food nearby.."
That is one crazy mask, Mark, and nice and sharp shot!
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.
And who knows, maybe you'll return the 70-200, too.
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
