Hi there,
I was a bit off the tracks. Great photos everyone!

Kevin, wow, your late B&W-work is really great, I'm glad to see that you have found your personal "formula" for perfect processing (and shooting too). The parking-garage-shot (the arrow) is fantastic as are the architecture-details a few posts back. Keep em coming!

Ray, your animal-portraits are excellent! The 300/4.5 works wonders in your hands.

Ronny, the $70 were wisely spent - love your shots from winterly Sweden.

Samy, very nice round-up of the 28/3.5 PC's mechanics.

So much for now, will come back later.

Instead of reading up on clouded leopards, I ended up on eBay looking at '300mm f/4.5's
Surely a sign of excellence in my books...
My wallet says uh-oh!

Nice white beach, Ronny - really nicely captured

Here are some recent shots. First three are with the Series E 28mm (first one is a reverse macro) and the last is the 80-200mm f/4.5. I have also been working on my B/W conversions. Zichar (Chin) kindly sent me a magazine on converting images for B/W with a variety of different techniques. Hope you approve Chin!

BTW, this is not a crop. I had the penny standing up on my 80-200 and the camera sitting on a small stack of books...




Kevin - these are different, interesting and really worth looking at. You were far too hard on yourself a couple of weeks ago!

Here's some bird shots with the 300mm f4.5 and a 1.4x teleconverter. Not to the standard of certain others on this forum but fun to take (if cold).


Mark - these are very good - they are small birds and the light can't have been fantastic. That is a really pretty Tit!

Thank you Ronny, Leighton, Samy, Jeff, and Ray for the train comments.

Ronny, your latest dock image with the grass in the foreground is very nice.

Leighton, the second train image was taken at near minimum focus distance. You are going to like your 28 2.8.

Samy, the raindrops are nice. I favor the b&w as the leaves really pop.

Ray, the leopard image is fantastic.

Kevin, your b&w work is really nice. Like the lines in the architectural shots.

Welcome back Philippe. Another great candid with the 180.

This will be fun. Maybe you can help me with my next Nikon MF lens purchase!

I bought a Rokinon 85 1.4 with chips that does not seem to be working on my D700. So I am returning it tomorrow, and am not going to replace it. Will keep with my 85 2 ai until I find an 85 1.4 ais that is reasonably priced. Months or years.

So I will have ~ $400 in my lens kitty to work with. Here is my set now: 28 2.8 ais, 50 1.2 ais, 85 2 ai, 105 2.5 ais, 135 2.8 ais. Also have a 35-70 2.8D and 70-210 4 in auto focus.

My thinking is one of the following: 20 4 ai, 180 2.8 ED, 300 4.5 ED IF.

Any thoughts will be appreciated. I will take your comments in mind, and prioritize my ebay search accordingly. No rush, here...

David, The 20mm, 180mm and 300mm are all excellent lenses. It really comes down to your shooting style. But out of the three you mentioned, personally, I'd go for the 180mm.

Thanks, Leighton. Don't really have a shooting style. Seems to me I am more infatuated by the equipment!

Here is what I was just doing, and something that might be of interest to others here:

In Lightroom, Library mode, hit the backslash key to bring up the Library Filter (make sure you have selected a folder containing a representative amount of recent photos. Mine has over 46,000...) Choose Metadata. You can then see all of the Cameras and Lenses you have used to take the photos in that folder, or folders. You can see a count for each item, etc. Fascinating.

For me, it shows that I took almost as many photos with the X100 in one year as I did with the 7D in four. I think this is more about the shooting experience than about the quality of the image. And I have already taken more photos with the D700 than with the X Pro 1 (although that may change if Adobe does indeed update Lightroom tomorrow...)

So, no pattern. The 180 is the last of the supposed Nikon classic mf lenses that will round out my lineup, and I am leaning to it...

I have a 180 2.8 AI and rarely use it. If I go long I reach for the 300mm 4.5 EDIF. Long seems missing from your line up. You can also add a TC-14 and have a 400 5.6 so there is a lot of versatility. If you go for the 300 be sure to get the EDIF version. I had the non ED version and was a lot heavier and suffered the purple CA. Just my 2 cents

180 for sure. Check B&S here too.

If you do decide to hunt down a 180, I do have a beater that I'm getting ready to sell off since I bought one in a bit better shape, just haven't gotten around to listing it yet.

Hi Leighton. Here is another taken with the 28 2.8 ais at minimum focus distance, wide open. Hope you are healing up. We are missing your photo contributions.
