Kevin - just a terrific series. The E lenses are pretty good but it's the guy looking through them that makes the difference - well done

Georg - great bonfire photo

Samy - that's one interested cat, love her!

Curtis - wonderful landscape

Welcome! Better hide those credit cards in a big big bag of frozen water at the bottom of the freezer compartment, behind the Brussels sprouts!

Yes, resistance is futile, you will end up with one, especially now that you're dabbling in the world of FX

Samy I have enjoyed your safari photos
The 400mm 5.6 AIS is certainly a wonderful lens. Between Curtis, John and yourself I am finding it very hard to resist seeking out a copy for myself - I must resist!

Me too, but none of my kids do. And now I can't find my favorite frozen ones, either. Between that, and registration issues at school that aren't letting anyone register for classes even though it was supposed to start at 12:01AM, I'm rather grumpy. Up till 2am trying to register, then awake at 530 to try again.

Ray, just a little bit of help to convince you , some samples taken with the 400/5.6 ai EDIF

Birds:

Southern Lapwing with juvenile by labecoaves, on Flickr
D7000 + 400mm f/5.6 AI EDIF hand held, ISO 500, f/8 at 1/1600s, ~45% crop.
This young has at most 4 or 5 days old.


BIF:

Southern Crested Caracara in flight with Nikkor 400mm f5/6 AI EDIF by labecoaves, on Flickr
It is difficult, but far from impossible: BIF with manual focusing lenses.
D7000 + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 AI (narrow tripod collar) , ISO 320, f/8 at 1/1250s, hand held, ~40% cropped.


Static subjects:

Lichens and ferns on tree bark by labecoaves, on Flickr
D7000 + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 AI (narrow tripod collar) EDIF, hand held supported on windowsill. ISO 500, f/8 at 1/160s. The bark was ~8m of distance, ~ 20% cropped.


With tubes and close up filter for extreme macro:

Jumping spider with 400mm f/5.6 + tubes + 500D close up filter by labecoaves, on Flickr
First experiment of using a Canon 500D close up filter with Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 EDIF AI + tubes.
The spider has a length of just 9mm. Distance was ~80cm.
D7000 + 120.5mm tubes + 500D + 400mm f/5.6 (set at MFD - 4m). This combo was supported by a tripod and I used a remote cable with mirror lock up. ISO 800, f/16 at 1/60s.

This is a very versatile lens, from infinity to macro work.
I agree with Curtis, the lens is totally hand holdable and for action shots including BIFs the focusing is fast. The 400/5.6 ED non IF is slightly better wide open, but it is heavier and harder to focus due to the long helicoidal.

Optically they are identical. And it seems you missed my earlier post in which I made that point and directed you to an E-Bay listing for a mint AI-s copy for a very fair price. You might want to scroll back a bit... that is, if you see this message. Good luck.


Saw your earlier post, but the ebay listing was not up to my minimums required for serious interest. (One incomplete photo, second party seller, etc.)

Good news is that I was able to come up with a good AI-s copy. that I will have in a few days. Thanks for your replies!

Amazing posts on the last few pages! Will come back later to comment...

Here are a few images from today:


The 20/3.5 Ais (here at f/11 on a D700) can be tricked to create some nice sun-stars...


a stitched pano shot with the 20/3.5 Ais - it looks crooked even after some corrections
the dark band sitting on the horizon is smoke from the ships :-(


Big Bunny is watching you von georgsfoto auf Flickr
...taken from the lighthouse too, same lens, same camera
- the composition could have been better (left part of the railing bending into the upper left corner)

...and finally a special for Samy - the former Villa of the Heinkel-Family:

...shot with the 28/3.5PC - it's really hard for me to use this lens hand-held...
Unfortunately I couldn't find a decent point of view without ugly cars, traffic-signs and so on.

I really love the composition just as it is! The rail leads you right to the bunny
