Don't dismiss the 35 F2. I have the AI-S and the older O version and I really like both of them. Bjorn said his copy was sharper than the 1.4 at the higher f stops.


Never heard Curtis referred to as "Pusher Man"
Reminds me of an old "Steppenwolf " song

I would go with these 3- 28 2.8 ai-s,35 1.4ai-s and a 50 1.2 ai-s they will get you thru a month or 2

Thanks folks for the comments on the DC photos. Couple more pictures from the Vietnam memorial.

The third photo was a bus coincidentally parked in a downtown DC street.

All three were with the 55 f1.2S.

+1 and also for using the 500mm mirror for birding. Is that the first sample of a mirror lens on this thread?




I also liked the "Redbird" - they are stunning.

Samy, I also have one and have posted from time to time (see p.17 #6 ) on this thread

It's a very good lens with a well lit subject - ideally on a tripod since it's very light.

Jim if you need therapy for the Nikon MF Acquisition Syndrome make sure you don't consult with Curtis, Regan, Leighton, Samy or Monty and definitely not me. You might try Phillipe. He manages to take the most marvelous damn pictures with 2 or 3 lenses.

I've been following this thread long enough to know who the pushers are.

My next quest may be to fill the gap between 24mm and 55. That means 35mm, but my researches reveal that that is an expensive focal length (at least compared to my other MF purchases).


Ahh Jim, I have something that may fit the bill. the 28-50mm f3.5 AI-s. PM me if you're interested.

Terrific Peter, outstanding!!! And I am glad I was just curious and didn't make any disparaging comments about the 500 mirror lens

I did go back to p. 17 to see the original post and seems like the lens pusher was active back then too

Who me?? I do have the cure! When I feel the attack coming on I instead go read up on various species from Florida or the zoo there that Ray keeps on featuring here

Ron, super nice image with that reflection. Was that from the day you said you didn't like your shots from Longwood?

For those who are interested in the more rare of MF Nikkors . . . .

http://seattle.craigslist.org/kit/pho/3639630347.html

I won't be making an offer any time soon, though it would be cool to see one in person and throw it on the D800 (after it was AI'd) . . .

Ron, beautiful picture.

I wanted to share the trip to lake Coatepeque in El Salvador, this is a crater lake, very deep, not sure how large but large enough. the tallest mountain around it is the Santa Ana Volcano, about 9,000 feet, all the forests around are really coffee farms. My dad was a coffee farmer, we lived in the nearby town of Santa Ana and had a house on the lake where weekends were spent fishing, snorkeling, skying, the nights going by boat to our friends houses for parties and games. (We were kids free to roam, but it was so safe and beatiful back in the 50s and 60s)

Nikkor 16mm 3.5 and 25-50mm 4.0 D800.

Rafael -

Stunningly beautiful! Great work with that 16/3.5. Though the last one surely is not a 16mm image

O.K. I finally figured out how to do this. As you may note, I've been a member here for longer than many of you, just too cheap to pay for uploading photos. And I have been a lurker to this thread since it began. I am an active participant over at Nikon Cafe (Pa).

My profile now shows that I have four MF Nikkors: 24/2.8 AIS, 55/3.5 AI micro, 105/2.5 AIS, and since last week a 135/3.5 AI. You folks are to blame for most of the expenditure.

I'm really enjoying the 135 as I seem to have lucked into an

Glad you decided to join the conversation Jim. Since you're playing with these lenses it makes sense that you'd participate in this get together. As folks have suggested, the only downside is that it is difficult to resist new lens purchases when so many on this thread are so often tempting us with what they're doing with lenses we don't already own. I didn't get to 32 lenses by accident... I may be among the enablers at this point in the life of the thread, but I started with only eight lenses. The combination of subtle encouragement and the continued evidence of the capability of these lenses made resistance futile. But if you've been following us for a long while, you know what you're getting into. Have fun with your lenses, share your work and your observations. This really is a great place to celebrate these lenses.
