Cool story! I always tell myself to take my camera, no matter where I am going, just for that reason. Good luck on the renewal!

That's quite a collection you have on the way! You got bit pretty bad. This looks like a cool place to hang out.

You are right. Ben is my new "Maitre à penser" : because of him I bought a nikon 85 HC, a Nikon 50 1.8 ais, a Zeiss 85 P, a BMW 530, a Dassault Falcon 7X.....


Huh??!! This is crazy....I bought the 24mmPCE and the zeiss 85P because of YOU - not the other way around.

Haven't been out to take pics much lately - but if I was tempted AND I'M NOT - it would be the new zeiss 55mm f1.4 - bit out of my league but Phillippe, with the BMW and the Dassault Falcon - I'm sure you could swing it.

What happened to the nikon 24 mm f1.4 you were going to get? I'm still waiting for those shots!

Yes, the 14 day return is a nice addition. It will definitely take some getting used to, but I think it will be a fun lens. I will have to check the infinity issue that you are talking about and see if mine does the same thing. Do you have the newer AI versions or the older F model?

–Tony

Both of my copies are the AI versions. There are some slight differences between the true AI and the non-AI versions that have been factory converted.

I'm really procrastinating with a long list of things on my to do list... that I'm completely ignoring. I've been bitten by the camera bug and playing with my toys. Rather than go to the bank, I mounted the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF, with a TC-201 teleconverter and a PN-11 extension tube. Unfortunately, my effort to enter the correct information in the non-CPU register were for naught and these images show up as 500 at f/8, which was the lens last mounted on my camera.

Here are four leaf studies with the lens hand held but supported by adjacent walls.

Hi Curtis,
Lovely shots, I really like the simplicity and the way the leaf stands out from the black background in your second shot. I hope that you provide us some pics wih Nikki using your tubes.
Also glad that even an expert like you can sometimes come unstuck with entering the non-CPU information, makes me fell less bad when I shoot with the 28mm lens registering as the 300mm.
Hope you made it to the bank in the end.

P.S. Love the shot of the Seminary and great story on getting the photo liscenced. Hope they renew it and pay you oodles of money.

Welcome to the thread Andy. Looks as if you got it bad! I think you'll find a very friendly and helpful crew we have here. We also like to spend others money.

However, you would need to remove it to adjust it. The original had a geared knob so you could rotate the filter while it was installed and you were looking through the viewfinder.



The only CPL that fits is the factory one. The B+W one will not screw into the holder and if it did it would be way to thick to slide back into the slot. The factory one usually goes in the $300 range. They are very very rare.

I was able to catch-up with the thread last night. Great stuff!

Samy, very nice street shots and the golden bell towers are terrific.

Curtis, Peter, Sam, Mark and Jim T., beautiful tube shots!

Georg, I love the composition of "University Hospital" and the "beach grab" was really well done. Nice milestone, I'm looking forward to seeing your millionth shot.

Chin, more dazzling work with your PC-E.

Jose, the Pompeii series continues to amaze. One of my favorites is the serpent wall painting.

Ronny, I like your street shots, especially the b&w. Great running dog photos!

Kevin, very cool abstract and flowers.

Americo, good luck with your analogue adventures. Glad to hear your daughter is recovering well.

Avi, great shots of the green bridge and the icicles.

Leighton, the second shot of Barbara's new crops is really nice. The snow shots are beautiful.

Mark, "small boy, big world" is excellent and the "fruit slices" is a great WA entry.

Philippe, great composition of "No Print."

Ben, nice street work with the 24mm PC-E.

Scott, I really like the "Woodland Frost" abstract.

Nancy, cool cat!

Ray beautiful work with the 35mm.

Tony, "out for a stroll" is really nice." Love the fog.

Ron, cool lens tools. Where's the hammer?

Mike, nice grizz! I'm looking forward to seeing your comet shots.

ddog, great golden!

John and Ray, beautiful work with the 16mm.

Chuong, great photo. Good luck with the book.

Rafael, I enjoyed the tile making shots.

Curtis, terrific shot of San Anselmo. I can see why they liked it so much.

Andy, I enjoyed the courthouse pub.

Leighton and Laura, good luck with the feet!

Yay, finally got my roll back
Developed at a local lab then sent for scanning with a hobbyist (with a google drive download link no less!)
Not many keepers though, my first time with Tri-X

Trying to fulfil Leighton's wishes, to see more of life around me, the streets
This is taken in my hometown, a lil' town called Ipoh in Malaysia; at the dingy and dimly lit wet market (thought it was perfect, taking over Dean's duties heh heh)
I haven't been here for at least ten years and it hasn't changed nary a bit - just like I remembered it when I was a kid
Turned around and caught this old man walking through the lanes, surrounded by dried goods (scallops, fish, shellfish, vegetables, peanuts, etc - essential Cantonese culinary ingredients)

Leighton - no peace for the wicked with all that snow

Samy - love the cat

Mike - that's a serious bear! Love it.

Jose - thanks for looking. NIce shot of the mosaic hard to believe it was buried for nearly 2000 years

Curtis - the bee shot was handheld but I did do a machine gun shoot!Thanks. Nice exposure on the 16 mm although I'm not really a fan of the fish eye effect.

Your leaf shots are terrific - I can only conclude that you were a heck of a shot in your youth if you ever hunted

I also really like the seminary which is so classical that it could be in Italy.

Ray - thanks and excellent use of the 16mm

Choung - another lovely shot of your daughter

Mike - nice bird shot. I think you hit the nail on the head - the digital darkroom allows one to do a lot with this lens which IMO is underrated

John - the 16mm shots are stellar (no pun intended)

Tony - thanks for looking

Andy - Cairns looks good through your lens. Welcome - now we haveat least 3 aussies here I'll have to look up more Saffers!

Chin - good to see you back - nice shot

Rafael - you clearly gained a bit more altitude

Firstly welcome. Cairns is such a lovely place and I expect you will make us all jealous with some great shots in the permanent sunshine.
Nice shots of the courthouse-come-pub although this doesn’t do the Aussie stereotype any favours.
In your last shots have the Dutch landed? Hupp Oranje!
