I think it's as you said many times. A real nice lens that you can walk around with and not need 3 lenses.

I think a real nice kit would be the 28mm f2.8 AI-s, 50-135mm f3.5 AI-s and the 180mm f2.8 ED. And perhaps the 55mm f2.8 for micros.

Man, the more and more I see the 50-135, I want one. I think I would use it more than the 80-200 I use now. Anyone want to trade me?

They are cheap enough to have both. The only weird thing I hate about the 50-135mm. It is 62mm. A real oddball for Nikon. Different cap, different hood and on and on. It is however quite a bit smaller and easier to walk around with than the 80-200 MF

This is too funny, I am now getting a reverse itch I want to pull out my 14-24 after months of hibernation and try it out.

AF and MF can coexist, whatever your itch is for the day just scratch it.

I don't have much of a preference for the filter size...since I don't have anything to put on there. Anyone have one they want to swap with me? I would consider the Series E 75-150mm as well (keep up with the rest of my growing Series E family) The extra reach is nice, but haven't needed it yet and I don't see a need anytime soon.

Leighton, up further north a bit from you there was a faint rainbow here, nothing like the intense one you posted.

There was an interesting light that was disappearing fast along with the sun, I tried to capture it on this tree with the 35 f2 OC. The branches almost looked orange.

I am surprised there isn't a 50mm in there... You know, I didn't know until last week that you shot with a D7000...I always thought you shot FF with the quality of your pics.

A real nice kit for your D7000. I always wanted the 135mm f2 when I had my D7000 so I could have an equivalent 200mm f2.

Thank you Kevin. The D7000 is a great camera with an amazing dynamic range. It is a very capable camera. As far as the 50mm I have a 50 mm 1.4 but on crop I prefer the 35 as my normal lens.

I hear ya there... I need a 35mm... I have been using that 28mm as my "normal", but would like a 35mm. I have been using the Series E 50mm as a portrait lens and for things that I want very detailed (its tough to focus sometimes, but the detail is awesome).

Nice series Ron. The 50-135 is a nice lens. Like the fisheye too.

Winter continues but with some nice sun. Taken yesterday with the 28 2.8 ais. I intentionally went out at midday in the bright sun to see what kind of image could be obtained in the harsh light. Thanks for looking.

Ray, I agree with you on the D7000. My widest MF lens is the 20 3.5. I like the 28 2.8 as my standard lens. The 50 1.4 and 105 2.5 are my bokeh producers. It is fun selecting which to carry each time I go out.

It gets easier, it just seems heavy. And yes, they weren't happy to see that monster lens pointing their way

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

50 plus pages behind, but I'm enjoying the continued conversations and excellent pictures in the few I've looked at. Would mention a few standouts but afraid I'd leave some out, so maybe when I sit down another day to really catch up. Nice to see / read / hear everyone though. Just wanted to say Hi!

You still have that white stuff Scott? Very decent shot for bright sun. That 28 works in the sun or the shade? Nikon's not so best kept secret among the MF crowd.

Hey guys stopping in to say hi. And to let you know that as much as it pains me, I've come up against a medical bill wall and I'm going to need to sell my 85MM F1.4 and the 105MM F1.8. If anyone is interested shoot me a PM and I can send you some photos and prices. Just looking to get out of them what I paid to get out from some medical payments I need to get rid of.

$730 shipping and paypal for the 84MM F1.4
$465 shipping and paypal for the 105MmF1.8

I'm going to wait a day or two to list them to see if there is interest here first.


Matt
