Ronny, Nitro is a star on both threads
Phillip, Margo and the 105 were made for each other
Reagan, that 50 SC is a nice lens
Mark, between you and Phillipe's photos. Europe has some pretty wild outdoor parties
Kevin, I don't know why you doubt yourself that parking garage image is great Also the outside shot of it is very nice

Chuong, I love the recent railroad shots. They remind me of photos posted on TrekEarth by a fellow in Finland who shot Russian railroad cars that had unusual colors and markings on them. I tried to look for a railroad yard in the Bay Area, but where you find railcars you generally find tall fences... I'm love to do what it appears you did, and ramble around a rail yard to take close shots of all the interested details. Well done!

It must of been the 70's then. And Samy, I don't remember a whole lot about the concert, if you know what I mean.

I'm with Leighton Scott... I've very much been enjoying your rural winter scenes. Very well done. Of course, I'm happy to be in California rather than upstate New York or Oshkosh, Wisconsin...

Great looking 50-135 f/3.5 AI-s Ron. The lens doesn't often make it to my camera, but it is a lens I'll likely never sell. It performs very well. Nice pick up.

And why am I not surprised that Monty is having an 85 f/1.4 AI-s itch?

Frankly, Monty, I think a few of those lenses are priced a bit high for the market, so you'll likely have a few remaining at the end of this process, though the 85 could go. That would be a real loss because judging from your work with that lens, it is a focal length that really works for your shooting style. If it is already listed Monty you might want to consider removing it... The is such a thing as "seller's remorse..."

Chuong, Always like photos with the 135

One more, the only one with the 105 1.8. This sculpture was in front of the Stamp Union.

1975? Leighton wasn't that when your hair was a bit different from that Baltimore photo a few weeks back Seems like you do remember a few things through the fog

These are all great! How long is the tube?

I think I want a set of tubes and I need a decent flash I can use off-camera. Any suggestions for those?

Nothing is listed anywhere yet. I plan on putting them on eBay one at a time in "reverse use" order

The 20mm will go up tonight.
Then the 105mm or 28mm. Since I got the 85mm the 105mm has not been on my camera. The 105mm is a beautiful lens but unused with an 85mm in the house

I only need a few hundred to cover my latest purchase. Once one or two lenses sells I suspect intrest in selling will wane.

And the 85mm? Never. It's a keeper. I suspect the fisheye and I will never part company either. The 14mm-24mm may put it "out of business" though, but that is a long way out.


The 70-200 should arrive at work tomorrow morning. I suspect 9:50 AM will NEVER get here After that all work will cease and I will be taking a long slow walk thought the shop

PK-11A (get the A version) is 8mm.

Even with 8mm of extension I found the MFD of Nikki to be a bit too long. Yesterday I used the PK-12 (14mm) and it worked much better.

I have the old Nikon K1 through K5 tube set - very cool for the wide angles, since the K1 is the shortest extension ring ever made by Nikon - great on my 20mm or 24mm. Found my set for $10 in the original leather case. Seen them as high as $150 on ebay, so shop carefully. Modern tubes are longer than the entire K1-5 set (40mm?), so for telephotos you may want to find something that is longer for closer focus.

Flash - if you don't care for TTL, anything will do as long as you can adjust the output. I use an a Nikon SB-16 from my F3HP and a Canon 540EZ I bought in the 90s, both with radio triggers from China (Yongnuo RF602, set of 3 receivers and sender for $65). TTL makes things much more complicated and very expensive, especially for remote trigger. Many ways to do this, sky is the limit.

Nice examples of Nikki with the extension tubes John.

Did this recent trial of the 55 3.5 Micro with the PK13 X 2 + PN11 ( I think total about 110mm or such). The label on the case for my Kindle. Kindle's a god send during various travails experienced during air travel

With that extension tube combo and the 55 Micro, one is down to nearly 0 cm between the front of the lens (hood attached) and subject. I just rested the lens hood down on the case for this shot, and sunlight happened to be directly on the case, otherwise adequate lighting can become very problematic without one of those ring flash gizmos.
