Thanks Tony - took about 30 shots of that bike - was obsessed with it for some reason.

Thank you too Curtis - yes the 24mm PCE was a bit rich for my blood too. I sold 5 AF lenses, the Olympus OMD and the Fuji XE1 to pay for it (and the Zeiss 85mm). I ended up a little bit ahead - and I've cleared the shelves for the next purchase - god help me. I'm very interested in the new zeiss 55mm - but 3000 euros is just out of my league.

Crazy weather, we had a snow storm that left an inch or two this morning, then it all melted followed by a rain shower a little while ago. And then this rainbow popped out with the end of it right in our lane, I haven't see one with this intense colors in a long time.

Very nice. I am about 125 miles east of you, and we have had rain all day, with as few rounds of sleet. No photo opportunities here today...

Great capture! An exceptionally colorful rainbow.

Thanks David, Monty and Ray.

David, I thought you were in Richmond?

EDIT: I just looked again and you said 125 miles, NOT 25 miles like I thought I saw!

I think he's telling you that they're not happy you went over to AF lenses.

I know it is all in good fun
I'm sure I will have a lot of fun with it.

I'll tell you one thing, a D800 with a grip and a 70-200 is one HEAVY pig

At one time I had a D70 and the 80-200 f2.8 ED and I ended up selling the lens because it was so big I didn't use it very much at all. But it did take wonderful images!

I really think Monty's going to like the 14-24mm knowing his taste for those wide shots

I borrowed this setup from a friend once, was surprised at its weight also. It delayed me buying a dslr by a good 2 years.

I actually sold the D70 a little while after that and bought a Panasonic FZ50. The Panny was capable of images as good as the D70, but nothing like today's DSLR's.

Very nice Ron, I really like the first one. Not a bad lens is it? It's what I caught the rainbow with as well.

Yes, but get in post and crank those curves at high ISO and the weight will tend to melt away. Also, at base ISO the highlights head room is just awesome . . . .
