some great flower shots these last few pages - you're on fire Curtis.

I took nikki out but all the shots were crap. The streetscapes were "banal" and the candids looked like lame versions of something Phillippe would take.

I'm totally psyched out. I need more time - just going to leave it on the shelf for a while.

This lens looks so pathetically inadequate on that camera - this must be the reason for all the huge zooms. Just to restore ones masculinity!

Looks good to me though....


Peter, if you mount it on a D7000 the combo looks very sexy, believe me! And takes stunning images!

Some great work lately guys! You all are inspiring me to shoot more.

Here are some people shots from yesterdays market. The first and last ones were with the 180mm, and the middle one was with the 28mm.

It was a beautiful day but gold. In fact, it's 33 outside right now!

Nice market shots for the week Leighton, like each one of the images! Same spring chill here but at least not windy this morning

Here's edge crops of the 20 3.5UD and 24 2.8 AIS images.

Jose, I have spent a good amount of time looking at Trajan's column. What you have been able to bring out with your skill and patience is the science, engineering and art back in ancient history that went into putting up this structure that has withstood time!

Ben, your shop window reflection images are always super. And looks like there's a bit of space near Nikki to add another lens to your collection

Ray (FL), superb interior images of that mansion.

Ray (OH), very nice images of the Fallen Timbers monument, both the wide angle and the composition with the zoom!

As usual just an amazing collection of images added so far this weekend. Curtis, after seeing that great shot of the bridge I am even more impatient for my 24mm to arrive.

Samy, the colours in that 85mm shot are amazing, great capture.

Love the focus stacked flower shot Jose and the comparisons of the two 200mm lenses, boy that QC lens sure looks beautiful.

Ben, that's some shelf for Nikki to be back on. Nice pics from the 24mm, I love especially the last one.

Leighton, good to see the market shots back, especially the young lady with the 28mm

Ray, that's some mansion and nice interior shots with the fisheye.

I'm sure the lens is perfect - all Rafael's lenses look amazing!

My comment was really a dig at the huge AF Nikkor Zooms that I sometimes see attached to these enormous cameras as if the shooter needs to prove his manhood

You guys are all too fast for me - you play one game of golf and get left behind!

Really good flower shots by Jose, Curtis and Samy

Awesome interiors Ray

Curtis those little league portraits are amazing

Jose - the more I look at Trajans Column the more I have to look. Just fantastic.

Leighton - magic market shots.

Samy - very good birds.

Apologies if I've left anyone out

Interesting observation about the 24 2.8, George. I just haven't used it in months, may need to check it out more. I went back and looked at larger size photos of the tree with the two lenses. The corners/edges are just smears in the 20UD image (and that's after a bit of cropping at the edges). The 24 2.8 AIS image is sharp all the way across the frame (no cropping). Maybe a slight falloff at the very far edge of the image, but not much, still can make out distinct grass blades at the edges of the bottom corners.

Not

The 24mm 2.8AIS is much like the 28mm2.8 in quality and sharpness corner to corner, it just doesn't get the same respect
The flowers and the cardinal shots are very nice!
Thanks to all for the comments on the mansion photos

Thank you Rafael, Curtis, Samy, Mark and Peter.

Rafael, are you "devilishly" suggesting I must buy a Nikkor H or H.C 85mm f/1.8??

Curtis, I think the 85mm FOV and delivered perpective is just perfect for this job; supposedly a 50mm or shorter lens would result in visible distortions;

Samy, about Trajan's Column, imagine what a beauty it was when the painting was fresh and the metal arms & armour were in place during ancient times;

Ray, another great set with the 16/3.5; you too sometimes is "heretical" defishing 16/3.5 images like me

Leighton, nice portraits;

Samy, what a tiny DOF in the cardinal!

This is for Curtis:
A simple real word subject test for bokeh comparing one of the "queens of bokeh", the 105/2.5 P vs. the 200mm f/4 QC.


Bokeh test of Nikkors 105/2.5 P vs. 200/4 QC wide open by labecoaves, on Flickr

Nikkor-P 105mm f/2.5 (Sonnar) ai'd vs. Nikkor Q.C 200mm f/4 ai'd, both wide open
D600, ISO 200, no PP, straight from the camera - conversion at ViewNX 2.7 and resizing at CS5.
The 105 image was cropped to reach 200mm FOV.
As no PP was made, the pictures were taken at the same time (~10:57-11:02h) and sun light, and the D600 config was the same, colours differences (bluish 105, yellowish 200) are supposedly lens related.

I think this is not bad for a f/4 bokeh vs. the f/2.5 bokeh.
