Beautiful shots everyone! Curtis, I really love the last group of B/W's... I think they are your best yet!

I was at a camera swap meet today. Picked up a decent focusing rail. Have seen them for about $50, got it for $15, doesn't look to be used much at all. Can't wait to try it out.

The devil made me do it... another lens...

I've concluded that the 105 f/2.5 P AI'd is worth upgrading... the hard way... I bought a pre-AI copy that appears to be in EX+ condition. This means I now have TWO pre-AI lenses waiting for me to transfer the Nikon AI conversion kit from the lenses I already own to the "new and improved" versions of the lens. I've been loving the Sonnar version of the 105 and imagine it will continue to be a favorite. Increasingly, I'm carrying all pre-AI lenses in my camera bag, all converted, of course. The only

If you decide to change the aperture ring on this yourself be very careful with the spring that connects to the aperture lever
Laura I love the 16mm color shot!

Laura, nice images from the museum.

Here is one from today. Look! No snow, no ice! Spring must be here! Taken with the 180mm 2.8 ais.

Thanks Mihai, Samy, Scott, Curtis and Peter.

Ronny, excellent birding with your "360/5.6 ED" lens;

Magnificent flowers from Samy, Curtis, Ronny, Leighton and Kevin;

Peter, beautiful pano of the sunset/sunrise;

Mihai, great details from the church;

Curtis, though human portraits are not my cup of tea, I have to mention your work is exceptional and I always love to look at the images;

Ray, loved the crane with the 300/4.5 + TC;

Scott, the bare trees + reflections on the water are spetacular.

Nice captures Ray. Did you cropped a lot or not?


One more pano of Trajan's Column - 8 shots pano - a slight different view from southeast and closer to the column.
Here the bas reliefs have richer details, since the shots were taken at a shorter distance (~30m) than the previous image from yesterday(~50m).


Trajan's Column 8 shots pano - view from southeast ~30m of distance by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd & CPU'd hand held, ISO 100, f/4 at 1/1250s.

The original was at 14500 px, but this one is reduced to 6000px.
If the large version is not visible here, those interested can click on the link below image to access flickr, then right click on the image and choose "original" size.

Love the detail in the column.

I have to laugh Ben. You're clearly a very bright guy and yet the tags used by FM for these posts seem to get the better of you every time.. Perhaps it is your lack of patience that keeps getting you in trouble...

Lovely set of images Laura. The 16 f/3.5 AI is definitely a winner and you use it to advantage. Nicely done.

And Ray, I love the bird photos. I was under the impression you were selling your D7000, though clearly it is a camera that serves you when you're going long. The D7000 and D600 makes a very nice combination.

Your shots from your trip have been a delight Jose. I've long been a history buff and your work touches on some great moments in world history. I looked at the full size of this photos of Trajan's column and am in awe of the grandeur of vision and artistic achievement represented here. What a different world that was. I love what you've been sharing with us.

Curtis - really good portraits perfectly processed. Did you really need another lens

Samy - I like the spring shots.Thanks for the comment

Scott - thanks. Excellent reflections.

Laura - excellent images. Great colour, focus and exposure in all of them.

Philip - nice use of the 28

Chuong - that 16mm image really puts "pushing up daisies" into context

Ray - the camera probably thought you'd abandoned it! Nice images.

Jose - great pano. Thanks for the comment.

Couple finally without any extension tubes.

The first with the 85 1.4 AIS.

The second one is with the 55 1.2S.


Thanks for the comparison, there's no doubt which one wins the bokeh contest.

Ansel, dad and mom, all with the 105 f/2.5 P AI'd. And thanks for the lovely comments. I agree with Ray, we are blessed with talent on this thread. We're having a good time too. I got an email from a fellow who lives not too far from me who posted a few times quite awhile ago. He wanted to give me a heads up about a lens listed on the local craigslist. Although he never posts, he said he continues to follow the thread. There are probably many folks who do check out what is happening here who either
