Another advantage to DX is that it uses the sweet part of the lens. Kevin you are doing great work with those lenses. I saw a 100 2.8E on the B&S for $99 I think it was Ohio Ray that had it listed. Might be next on your list?

I have been considering that one as well. One of the things that has crossed my mind is collecting all the Series E lenses. They aren't quite as good as the AI/AIS, but on a Dx, its negligible.

Thank you Leighton, Americo and Ray.

Ray, as Laura has suggested, think about buying the D7100 and a D600


The last for tonight before bed, one of the wall paintings that survived at Pompeii houses:


Pompeii wall painting of a serpent. by labecoaves, on Flickr

Snakes were associated with good luck in ancient Roman world.
House wall painting detail with D7000 + 85mm f/1.8K ai'd & CPU'd hand held, ISO 100, f/5.6 at 1/160s, heavily cropped (~50%). This house was closed at the time of my visit, so I need to crop heavily.

I've bought both and can tell you for sure the pre-AI set WILL NOT work with the lenses most of us are mounting on our DSLR cameras. Here is a link to an E-Bay auction for the correct set of Vivitar tubes.

Funny to know that I still have (and use) this same Vivitar set, they were my first "serious" tubes, bought in the 1990's.
From Nikon I just have the PK-13 and PN-11. Need to use more all of them.

I have a 100/2.8 E that I'd let go for less than that . . . . PM me if you want some pictures.

Got a AI ED-IF 400mm f/5.6 just today. Perhaps paid too much for it, but ah well.

Here's a couple of test shots close to work, on the way back from buying the lens.

Love this abstract Curtis. Would that have been the series E Vivatar?

Congrats Avi, there's a few on here that rave about this lens, and I can see why.

Congrats Avi - show us a picture of your newest lens sometime. What condition did it end up being in?

Chin, terrific demo of the 45 PCE!

Ronny, Reagan's finally pleased with your photos

Kevin, beautiful blossoms!!!

Curtis, superb close up of the cactus!

Avi, welcome to the 400 5.6 club. The lens is sharp and equally important uniquely light enough at that FL to go walking around with it.

Jose, tremendous photos from your trip. And looking at today's NY Times magazine, the lead article is about a photographer in Brazil. The depth of field and crispness and vivid colors of the scenic shots reminded me immediately of your style. My favorite is the shot of the Ceagesp market.

Jose, another very nice pano from your trip. Like the curvature of the structure. Nice detail and richness.

Peter, that's an excellent set! I like especially the "Gaura" and the "Bottlebrush". The colors are top-notch and the sharpness is really great.
Comparing these images to some of your older pictures I wonder if you have changed your post-processing (I favor your new contributions).
Anyway - beautiful work!


Thanks Georg. The only change made was to use a tripod for each photo. With the PN-11 the dof is very shallow but by sliding the soom, I found it relatively easy to focus reasonbly accurately.

Thanks, Leighton, Chin, Samy, Jose and Ray

I have a serious problem with PSE 6 and/or Sandisk.

I went to a blugrass concert yesterday afternoon and unusually for me took about 200 pics. Came home and downloaded only to find that while they appear on "My Pictures" as .NEF files I can't open them in either PSE or View NX2. The disc appears to be totally corrupted but I'm sure this happened after the download.

Has anyone else had this lousy experience and if so were you able to fix it?

Any help welcome.

Thanks.

Did you erase the card when you loaded Peter? If not you could pop it back in the camera and just see if you can view them. I used to check the box to delete when finished loading and quit doing that after a similar issue happened to me.

Also check the info on one of the .nef files and be sure it is as large as you think it may be.

Are you opening them, or importing them? Try importing.

Also, if you haven't done this, try rebooting your PC. On a Mac, I would repair the permissions. Don't know what the equivalent is on the PC.

You could also download the free demo of Lightroom, or Photoshop, and see if that works...

Ok, I have reached the extreme of boredom. So much so, I have stooped to taking shots of my boot! I did manage to hobble out to the propagation greenhouses to take a few snaps of crops Barbara has started. it's always nice to go in there this time of year to get a green fix.

BTW Reagan, these were all with nice 28mm f2.8 AI-s you sold me, thanks again.

Thanks Ronny.

Here is the blossoming tree my coworker loves.

First shot is with the Series E 28mm. Either I have an excellent copy or the so-called reviewers that rate this so low are out of their minds.



The reviewers are out of their minds. I hate the weight and feel of the lens, but it is one of my most used lens because I love the images that come out of it. Lovely work with it BTW.

As it comes to the end of the ski season here you see a lot of those around. I hope that it is healing well!
