I took a few photos yesterday morning during a short walk. Here is a white rose in shadows...


Shot with the 105 f/2.5 P AI'd, which seems to be getting a fair amount of use. But I see flowers in the neighborhood that are calling out for the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF.

And I couldn't resist two orchids for sale at my favorite grocery store. Spot metering did the trick...

thanks Curtis and Philip.

Curtis, incredible light, color and sharpness in those orchids pics
Philip, I just lowered contrast in the background to obtain a better 3D effect

Guess what? The 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF still works... Here with the PK-13. I walked down the street and took a few photos, then spoke with another neighbor who is quite a handy person with tools. He worked for decades as a blacksmith and has rebuilt cars, bicycles and hand guns. I showed him my lens and he said he doesn't have screwdrivers that small. He also said if he needs to wear glasses to see what he's doing, he's not interested. Oh well, it was just an idea...


I did get a PM from an FMer who gave me a few hints of how to deal with stubborn screws. I'll work it out... eventually...

This was shot hand held at f/5.6. I honestly don't understand how anyone can shoot with MF Nikkors and NOT have this lens... It is a brilliant performer at a very affordable price.

Ray, Jose, Georg, Philippe, Ben. Amazing shots from you guys in the last couple of pages.

Alf, a very lovely looking dog, he has those sad eyes just perfect.

Curtis, lovely photos of Ansel, he is one cute kid and looks very happy.

A small break from teh Lago di Garda photos while I am back in Italy but not for pleasure this time.

Seeing the excellent photos from Ronny with the 180mm+200TC has prompted me to get some from my own 180 + TC201 combo. No amazing shot of a green door unfortunately but I did have one of a woodpecker.
Loving this combo.

Oh, and Curtis's devil made me do it but eagerly awaiting my new (to me) 24mm f2.8 Ai-s and Nikkor-Q 135mm f2.8 (which looks like it has been Ai'd at some point). Yipee.

Mark, congrats to your new lenses! The 24/2.8 will make a nice compact alternative to your 14-24/2.8. Love the colorful woodpecker-shot, by the way...

I went to a new to me area of our local park. I was walking the tree line with my D600 and the 300 4.5 EDIF. When I can to a clearing I ventured in a was face to face with a bared owl on the ground. We scared each other and he flew to a nearby branch of a tree and sat there posing for me until I wandered away. These shots are slightly cropped but by far this is the closest I have ever been to an owl in it's natural habitat. He let me get very close but under watchful eye.

Philippe, the street-scene looks really painterly, like a portrait taken in front of a hand-painted background. I like this effect. Love the depth in the market-scene!

Ray, very nice "portrait" of the sand-crane! Is the D7000 now your birding-only-camera?

Ben, very cool portrait with the good ol' 135/2 Ais! I wonder how the Zeiss Apo-Sonnar would render this scene...

Peter, your panos are truly beautiful, my fav is the one from Plettenberg Bay.

Mihai, excellent pictures taken in and around the church! I also really like the concrete-steps - not a nice view for the passer-by, but very nicely captured.

Chuong, the tiny flower is beautifully taken. I like the light on the blossom.

Curtis, I really enjoyed looking at your great B&W-work on the last pages. The palm-frond is my personal favorite - at first I've thought it's a picture of a hand-forged (?) fence-detail. Excellent framing and conversion!

Scott, beautiful reflection-shot to welcome the spring!

John, excellent work with your new 45/2.8!

Laura, very cool photos of the strange planes!

Samy, personal favorite from your lately posted pictures is the white blossom taken with the 180 and PN-11 - it jumps literally out of my screen...

Ronny, love the 3D-look of the wooden box!

Jose, your panos from the Trajan's column are nothing short of amazing!
The level of detail is highly fascinating, I could look for a very long time at scenes pictured in the reliefs.

Thank you Georg. I use my D7000 as a back up camera and for when I need the extra reach. I considered selling it to secure a 400mm 5.6 EDIF but D7000 gives me that reach. Also it provides me with auto focus because I don't have another auto lens for the D600.

Street scene from Nancy, 85 1.8 HC :




fantastic Phillippe

no...YOU need the 35 1.4 and I'm obsessing about the 135.

From what I've seen around the web - it really shines on the D800. They're starting to cater to the high res sensors (well, only one FX at the moment, the D800/E - but that's going to change very soon).

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...


my lack of patience does get me into trouble - but that's not the problem with the FM tages.

I'm sometimes logging in at work on my tablet - Nexus 10 (great tablet) - and there seems to be some compatibility issues.

Ray, yes, the extra-reach of a DX-body is handy. I mainly use the D7000 as second long-lens camera when shooting sports - and for concerts, readings, where the kinda quiet D7000 doesn't disturb like the loud D3s.
Great job on the owl - well spotted and captured! Most owls I can spot over here are the ones pictured on a symbol for nature reserves;-(
Here's a wooden owl captured a few weeks ago:

...taken with the PC-Micro 85/2.8D - diagonal tilted to lay the plane of focus over the eyes. D700's on-board-flash as fill.
