Man what a surprise that Regan is selling a lens! I love the 28. Amazing lens. Just look at the pics posted by Phillipe.


Reagan's problem is that he's no Phillipe
I just need the French air and light to to shoot in
I would assume than Leighton is happy

Look what I got from Reagan in the mail today, the 28mm f2.8 AI-s. It was a deal I couldn't refuse.

Thanks Reagan!

I have used that lens and it is a beauty. I guess your 24mm will be for sale soon? Congrats Leighton!

You're right, it is a beauty. I may keep my 24mm unless you want it, I'll sell it to you for what I bought it off Brad for.

I am going to sell my 28-50mm f3.5 AI-s though. If anyone is interested PM me before it goes on the B&S board.

Leighton, first you switch from the D7000 to FX-land, and now selling the 28-50! Somehow the axis of the earth just shifted a bit.

It does feel a little strange at the moment! I like the 28-50mm, it's sharp and has good contrast. The only thing I didn't like about it was that you couldn't get close enough at 28mm. I like being able to get real close in to something at that wide of FL. Even the 28mm f2.8 AI won't get as close as the AI-s version. And since I now have the 28/2.8 and a 50mm f/1.2, not to mention the 55mm f2.8, I feel I can let the 28-50mm go and not be missing anything.

mp356 wrote:
+1 to everything you said here. The 28-50 is very versatile, especially when you want to minimize lens changes in the field, but the 28 2.8 ais is sharper and focuses closer. It is always a tough decision which to carry, the 28-50, or the 28 2.8 and a 50 or 55. Now throw the 50-135 into the mix and it really gets confusing! Not bad problems to have.


That's one zoom I never plan to sell.

I'm quite happy with my D700 still. The only real improvements I'd appreciate are a 100% viewfinder, and the sensor from the D4, or the D3S before it.

I liked the D800E I was playing with at the local Henry's, but I'm in no rush to upgrade. The D700 is just that fine a camera.


I agree with you Philip. My comment came less from dissatisfaction than a willingness to stay open to new developments. Yesterday I ran into my friend George who first introduced me to the D700 three and a half years ago and asked how he is feeling about his recently acquired D800. He is loving it. Of course, he comes from medium format film, so the added megapixels are very welcome. He also shoots only with a tripod and so the grip that I found uncomfortable wouldn't even be a consideration for him. (He showed me on his iPhone his photo that will appear on the cover of the 2014 Sierra Club Wilderness calendar... quite a feat considering he also had the cover of the 2012 calendar...)

I will be content with the D700 for a long time but it would be nice to KNOW there were a camera that I could move to when the time comes. I feel the same way about my 1999 Acura CL coupe... a gorgeous car that is a joy to drive, even at 127,000 miles. Eventually, it will no longer be economical to keep the car, so I always keep my eye on new cars to see what might be my next purchase...

Sue and I were talking about it last week Leighton... figuring out how we could make that happen. You live in a very beautiful part of the country... that is a long way from everything else... My guess is that if it happens it will be next year. This summer we head to Long Island, New York, Sue's first visit in perhaps 20 years. She has a great many members of family and friends to visit, so there won't be any side trips during that visit.

Of course, I've little doubt that whenever we arrive there will be cold beer...

Glory hallelujah! DON'T sell this lens Leighton. That range is excellent for walking around and with a couple of fast primes, you're ready for just about anything except birding. That requires the 300 or 400mm lenses you see in my kit... affordable, not too heavy and wonderfully sharp with excellent color and contrast... as Ray keeps demonstrating with his 300.

Have fun Reagan!

Leighton, Leighton, come over to the "DX"side................




I'm sure you haven't forgotten that Leighton came to his D600 from the D7000. I was always delighted by what both of you did with that excellent camera, but certainly wasn't surprised when he made the move to FX given his long history with film. I know you have as well. I have expected you'd eventually end up with an FX camera yourself, but I appreciate that the price point of the D7100 makes is incredibly seductive. I'm curious about the 1.3 cropping factor as well as the other features of this camera, but I can't imagine going from FX to DX. It is wonderful that these cameras will mount MF lenses and that they have registers so the cameras will meter accurately. That is what really matters...

What a gorgeous lens! Happy to see folks on this thread are taking care of one another... Well done Reagan and congratulations Leighton. I really have enjoyed this lens and have no doubt you will as well. Don't forget to get up close and personal from time to time, something we know this lens excels at. Beautiful!

As you can see from some of my pictures posted here, I love me some reversed-macro shots. I love this one! What is the subject? Looks like red grass almost...

Thanks Ray and Kevin. It is an Anti-Static Duster. I've had a bad knee/leg the last 6 weeks...so, I have been sticking with what is at hand.

That is what makes macro so fun. Common place items, from a unique perspective, makes for interesting work. Might try and do some this weekend.

Granted, it will have to take a back seat to a more interesting development. The college I work at may be publishing some of the shots I have taken around campus in a school publication. It will be handed out to all the faculty and staff as well as parents who come in to learn about the school. I wish I could watermark the images in some way, but I can't... I hope to at least get a photo credit in the publication.
