Phillippe - good to see you back at your best

Georg - thanks for the info but no joy so far. I think the fence shot is really good.

Jose - the Pompeii series just keeps getting better

Sam - marvellous narcissus shots

Monty - good to see you

Nancy - love the tabby and the camera

Tony - thank you for the kind comments

Mark - nice macros of (in my opinion) a highly overrated fruit!

Leighton - I like the helicopter view of the greens

Chin - definitely not listing I like it

Jim - nice macro. 1st time I've seen the flower.

These are great! Love the bee in flight... One of the last pics with the ole D7000 eh? Have you figured out what you are going to go with? IMHO, I would look at the D7100. You are a master of Dx and with the extra MP, I think you would do exceptionally well with it.

Monday's lens porn. First pic with a 55 2.8 I was cleaning the blades for a friend. The pic is of my 28 3.5 I picked up awhile back with a "Fungus among us" spydering under the front element as you can see in the pic. 2nd Pic is of the disassembled lens. I was surprised all of it came right off with ROR. That's the element in the foreground but it is not too well in focus.. Pic taken with the 28 2.8 AI-S. I like doing this stuff but I don't like doing it so it is a catch22. It takes some serious brute force to remove any retaining rings and sometimes screws are nearly impossible to get out due to age.

Spring is in the air, my 180 2.8 ED ais is on the way, and I have the first of some outings coming up this weekend.

For this one I get to be on the spouse program (ain't retirement grand!) for a weekend at King's Mill in Williamsburg. Normally I play golf, but this winter has kept me away from the club, and I don't want to make my season debut at an expensive venue. So I will make pictures instead.

I plan to take the D700 and my new Tenba Messenger Small bag. Now, which lenses to take? I plan this to be a MF only trip, so I will choose 4 from the following:
28 2.8ais, 50 1.2ais, 85 1.4 (Rokinon), 85 2ai, 105 2.5ais., 135 2.8ais, 180 2.8ED ais.

My thinking at this point is the 28, 50, Rokinon, and the 180. Or maybe just the 28, 105, and 180.

Any suggestions?

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.


Man, I HATE being cooped up. I hope you are able to get back out there soon!

That second one is amazing, the vivid red and strong lines. Well spotted. The bee in flight is also a great capture.

Hi David,

I'd try the 28, 85 and 180. I think for golf the 50 will be a neither here nor there focal length but the 85 should be good and the 180 will be fabulous.

Hi Ron,

How do you shift those old screws? I wanted to try to clear some dust from inside a lens but couldn't budge them, do you have a good way? Thanks,
Mark.

The question is now...can you get back together! How do you treat the fungus without it returning?

Since you asked. And since I'm somewhat of a Nikon MF fanboy, I'd take the 28, 105, and 180!

I want to know this as well. Plus, cleaning the aperture blades. I would be willing to bet that most of the followers in this thread would LOVE a how-to on doing a CLA on a lens. I had one of my bucket list lenses given to me but I sold it for parts because it had sticky aperture blades and a lot of fungus on both the front and rear elements. There was evidence of it on one of the inner lenses as well, but it was very hard to tell.

It is already back together but I have to rip it apart again. I screwed up the infinity focus(not the first time). This fungus was just starting so it was easy to clean. It will not come back as long as it is in a dry place and exposed to some sun now and then. To be honest with you I will only touch the beaters or the junk. I have no intention of ripping apart any lens worth much. I can get the CLA completely done for $98 which includes return shipping. The blades on the 28 3.5 are completely isolated from any chance of oil -certainly a plus. I have a Nikon repair manual for this lens.. Worthless! Nothing but a bunch of part numbers and pictures. Not sure why they call them repair manuals.. Should be a parts manual.
