Very nice! I love my 135-Q. I think there are 3 of us that use it now. F/4 definitely is the sweet spot as far as sharpness goes. I am about to go out and do some macro work with that very lens (and a few others).

WOW! Georg, what a great shot. Too bad the label wasn't showing, the company might have purchased it.


+1 Georg, great shot. The 16 3.5 is an amazing little lens!

Leighton, I like your new avatar.

Since I have more money than tools and dexterity, I decided to have the local camera technician convert the lenses I'd bought with the intention of switching aperture rings. I gave them to him around noon and picked them up about five p.m. I then put the two pre-AI lens up for consignment. I won't make much on them but this is one way to give a bit of business to the camera shop and also relieve me of the responsibility for selling two lenses most prized by those using adaptors and mounting them of alternative cameras.

Here is my kit of pre-AI lenses, all of which have now been converted with Nikon kits. There are only two changes that could possibly happen with this lineup. If I found a mint copy of an 85 f/1.8 H.C. I'd consider replacing the H lens I own. I also don't have the 20 f/3.5 UD but frankly, 20mm is not a focal lens I'm inclined to use, so I doubt I'll add a second lens at that focal range. All but the 85 H are in EX+ condition. My shopping days are over...


Left to right: 105 f/2.5 P AI'd, 105 f/2.5 P.C. AI'd, 85 f/1.8 H AI'd, 55 f/1.2 S.C. AI'd, 50 f/1.4 S.C. AI'd, 50 f/2 H.C AI'd, 35 f/2 O AI'd, 24 f/2.8 S.C. AI'd and 28 f/3.5 H AI'd

Paul, wonderful work with the 135 Q. It appears to be fine lens with excellent sharpness, as well as good color and contrast. I won't likely go shopping at that focal length since I have two MF lenses at 135 but it is lovely to see it in the hands of someone who can give it justice. I look forward to your work as well Kevin.

Chuong, these are very nice. I like the touch of color in the lampshade in the first and the nice background in the second.

Thanks Georg and Ray.

Mihai, what a gorgeous portrait with the Sonnar 105; did you use it wide open or at least f/2.8?

Georg, great "tasteless" shot, beautiful and artistic at the same time, and a great application of the 16/3.5;

Samy, Laura and Chuong, another impressive flower collection from you.

Curtis, beautiful scalloped collection, but I think you need this beauty to have a more complete collection :

Inspired by the flower boom from the last 2-3 days, these are my humble contributions.

Some of the first "real world" tests with the 135mm f/3.5 ais + Nikon 3T close up lens.



Nikkor 135mm f/3.5 ais + 3T close up lens test by labecoaves, on Flickr

D600 + Nikkor 135mm f/3.5 ais + 3T close up lens, lens at MFD, ISO 250, f/11 at 1/800s hand held. The flower has, at most, 1 inch (2.54cm) in diameter. Light was mid-moorning sun.

D600 + Nikkor 135mm f/3.5 ais + 3T close up lens, lens at MFD, ISO 500, f/8 at 1/400s hand held. The light was a late afternoon sun.

It is definitely a gorgeous lens but the 4 elements in 4 groups does not stir Bjorn's juices. While the later versions from K through AI-s are given very high marks 4.5 to 5, the earlier lens is given a 2.5. I'm not certain it is a very sensible investment. I love the old lenses, but function matters to me more than form. The pre-AI lenses now in my kit all perform exceptionally well, the best of form and function. That is why my buying days might be over...

Well, I was going a little stir-crazy so I put on my pirate patch and went out for some one-eyed shooting with the 180mm 2.8 and PK-13 extension tube. A few were in focus, I think.

Got to teach a few beginning photog students a little bit about macro work today. Was fun! Outside was a little bit breezy, but did manage a few between gusts.

All shots with PK13...

First up is the Nikkor-Q 135/2.8. Other than the crop, SOOC


DSC_7789 by Kevin.Woodard, on Flickr

Series E 50/1.8


DSC_7826 by Kevin.Woodard, on Flickr


DSC_7828 by Kevin.Woodard, on Flickr

Looks like the Series E 50mm is about a 1:2 ratio, so the bug is half size...

Hope the eye operation goes well and wish you a quick recovery.

A few were in focus, I think.

They definately Arrrrrr.

Jeff, the 180 f/2.8 AI-s with extension tubes has long been a favorite for me and you've really done some fine work here. While it is generally useful to stop down when shooting with tubes, the sharpness of this lens wide open makes doing so always a pleasure, as your photos demonstrate. I'm glad you found a way to do a bit of photography. The wonderful thing about working with tubes is that ANYTHING can make an interesting subject. Of course, those of us in California have flowers to shoot. We're pretty lucky in that regard...

This morning I grabbed a shot with the 85 f/1.8 H AI'd. Shot at f/2.8 on a very bright day that definitely felt like summer. But no tubes...
