Looks like your DOF is about 2mm even at f/4.

Kevin, I tried to crawl on the floor with the tubed up 55 Micro and get real close to a spider after this shot. But between the lack of lighting near the edge of the floor and depth of field issues, I kept on getting dark blurry blobs instead of a hairy spider

Have to go look at the "Post your setup" thread again

All of the talk about the 85mm 1.4 AIS I had to get out today for some shots of NMFL's Monty you MUST keep this lens. It is a real gem!

Thanks Curtis. We have quite a few train stations here in Cincinnati. Abandoned ones are not difficult to see but hard to get to. I think I will explore more this summer. Some local photographers here took some really nice ones but I am not sure where yet.

Ray, that first flower shot is incredible sharp and colorful. I think I bought a defective 85mm f1.4 AIS. It's soft.

Thanks Peter, Mark, Georg, Ray and Samy for your comments.

Scott, really like your reflection shot and the farm landscapes in the snow.

Georg, terrific shot of the ornate door in the church.

Peter, "Paternoster at 1st light" is beautiful. I really like how the top is framed in fog. Great colors and composition on "Crayfish bakkie."

Monty, as one of my b&w benchmarks, I hope a few of your MF lenses don't sell.

Rafael, really like the "Ceremonial Barn."

Philip, wonderful shot of Margot!

Mark, great parade set.

Kevin, very cool b&w from the vacant garage.

Paul, I really like the sheet shot and the swans.

Craig, nice train images.

Chuong, great rust shots, especially the third one.

Kenny, I really like the Pumas on Porta.

Samy, nice campus shots, but I'm afraid they'll bring back my old nightmare of showing up for an exam without having studied a damn thing.

John, really like the Pike's Place Market shots, and the colors of the cupcakes, wow!

Ray, gorgeous flowers with the 85mm.

Well, to mark the passing of Monty into easy focus and composition, I will take us all the way back to the start of Nikon SLRs and Nikkor lenses. This is the 5cm 1:2 S, not the H or HC, the very first 50mm for Nikon SLR camera back to 1960 or so, there is a fantastic review of it at the link below with a link to a test where you can see it is as sharp as the 50mm 1.8 AFS wide open in the center, the center peaks at 5.6, and the frame gets evenly sharp at

Another great lens evaluation Rafael, thank you!

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.

Cute shot of your daughter, Philip. It is a great lens for portraits, but my copy never seems to have the contrast I want, wide-open. I know the lighting conditions play a big part, so I will have to practice some more with it when I get some time.

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

Yeah, the throw takes a little getting used to, but I feel like I have a bit more control when focusing. I love the scalloped ring on my 55mm 1.2 SC.

Just a quick note that the 400mm 3.5 with the TC16a does work well enough for the D800 but is not as sharp as the same lens with the TC300.

Here is an secretary bird with the TC300 on a D3

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