Wow, after a slowish period the images are taking off this weekend.

Georg, the fisheye series is top notch.
Reagan, thanks for the warm feelings from the ocean.
Peter, awesome b&w portrait of Ingrid's dad.
Mark, perfect symmetry and focus on the purple flower.
Tony, the third pic in the Rod Run series really jumps off the page. Any special processing or was that car that red?
Curtis, the guitar series is really different from what we've been seeing on this thread of late, and it's great.
Phillipe, the Opera series is outstanding.

Saw a little bit of green on the ground in the park today, spring is close :-)

I think they are AF something or other. I do know they kill ants really well - one at a time - using the sun.

What are all those things in the picture that move the focus by themselves? Are they easier to use?

Thanks for the info.

12-24 would be tough to part with. Unless there is a 14-24 in that pile of lenes somewhere

No, but there is a 10.5 fisheye in there that squares up to about 12mm rectilinear.

Notepad has been crashing constantly at home and at work. In almost twenty years of using it (since

back in WFWG v3.11 days) it has never crashed. So, I will try and do a summary post from the last few

pages.

Jose - I have always wanted to go to Pompeii and Herculaneum - thanks for sharing.
Ben - love the architecture, and other shots.
Rafael - the 20mm f3.5 shots were super.
Chuong - Congrats on your being published!
Philippe - every photo...every photo a winner! Thank you for turning me onto the 28 ais.
Ronny - In my opinion, you have taken some of the coolest dog photos I have every seen.
Georg - good solid work...did you bend over backwards on the fisheye stitch?
Peter - the F3HP is my favorite Nikon film camera. I shot well over one million images with two bodies -

neither of which ever quit working...even when the battery died...you can still shoot at 1/60 of a second.

Well - notepad crashed twice more while ctrl+v ing text for this post. Had no idea how much I rely on this tiny program.

wow - that is a lot of film! I am on my second F3HP as well - first one was stolen from me around 1990, probably the one that took the pictures above. I still have my Nikkormat EL (black), first Nikon body I ever bought, used in 1984 for about $400 in today's money. Both bodies are in rough shape, and I need new light seals. Keep putting that off, because each time I am ready to send them in, I buy another lens instead...

+1 on what Curtis says.

I owned both the 16/3.5 AI and the 16/2.8 AIS. The f/3.5 is slightly better with flare/ghosting with the sun in the frame while the f/2.8 is slightly better with the sun just out of the frame.
The f/2.8 has slightly better sharpness in the center than the f/3.5 wide open (they become equal stopped down), but falls way behind the f/3.5 in sharpness significantly off-center. This was apparent on my D300 and D700, & I suspect would be even more so on my D800.

The 16/3.5 continues to be one of - if not THE - sharpest
...Show more

One important thing I forgot to mention regarding the 16/3.5 vs, the 16/2.8 AIS or D is that the f/3.5 has a 170 deg. FOV while the f/2.8 versions are slightly wider at 180 deg - thus making it even easier to put an errant finger or foot in the frame w/o knowing it

Our azaleas are blooming in South Georgia so I decided to take out my Nikon 75-150mm Series E f/3.5 MF lens that I bought for around $80. I bought an adapter to put on my Olympus OM-D and did a few quick shots. I have read alot of good reviews of this lens but haven't had a chance to use it much. It's a fun lens to use and not too bad for under $100.

Thanks John, Ray, Tony, Mark, Leighton, Scott and Peter for the comments.

Tony, love the barb wire bokeh shot. The panos are real nice and great colors and composition on the car photos.

Leighton, really like the framing of the snow on the barn and the "S" turn shots. Love the tree with the 50mm.

Jose, terrific mosaics and frescoes.

Chin, nice ones from the market.

Curtis, beautiful flora and I love the bokeh plays from the guitar shop.

Chuong, great cemetery shot with the 16mm.

Philippe, "B&W" is a cool shot and the photos from the opera are magnifique.

Rafael, really like the haunted trees.

Laura, the 2nd m&m shot and the "Nubian" portrait are great.

Ben, wonderful buildings and sky shot with the 24mm PC-E.

Ron, very nice "Spring is coming" shots.

Monty, nice one from MIA

Mark, beautiful shots with the 55mm.

Peter, great portrait.

James do not feed that turncoat's AF frenzy.. Just ignore him and he will quiet down. I am suffering from Webex machinery pic withdraw.

Some shots from today - we got fresh snow and I couldn't resist to de-bag the 16/3.5 for some cheap thrills ;-)
All images taken around the same spot - a small area between the old city-wall and a former convent.

James, what an impressive collection, very well displayed too!!

Wonder if people here use special cases to seal their lenses.

Here's two items from more than half a century ago:

Coin, 1960






Nikon 5.8cm 1.4S lens, 1961






Both taken with the Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5, handheld. The coin was with an added PN-11 extension tube.

Thanks Leighton.

Laura, That's quite a nice looking Nubian. We had some of these when we first started farming. They're VERY friendly.


Thanks Peter, they were talking about making a thank you card out of one of the photos, so that's why I did one with the 55 in the background, and then opened the lens wide for the second shot. They chose the second one, too, but at least they had the option

Oosty wrote:
Laura - as a pic the second isolates the subject more. To choose #1 you'd have to jnow the background.



Thanks Jose. I've got a few shots from inside one of the barns as well

Lovely capture and great OOF background.


Ben, what they said, yeah!

Ben, fantastic perspective and contrasty deep blue sky vs. clouds.



Thanks Chin, I don't have the MF 200 f/2, this is with the 135 f/2

Laura, love the goat photo. Was this with the 200/2? I can see the hairs yet the background's all creamy, fantastic




Even in B&W it has 3D qualities for me.

Sweet, I got some birds Friday as well, I'll have to see if they were AF or MF.

Samy, you and I seem to be the only owners of the 5.8CM in this thread, do you use yours?
