Wow, where'd you get the 16 f/2.5
Nicely done, Monty!
We are visiting our daughter this weekend in the Land of Coffee and Bicycles
We did some site seeing today
Yes, I've learned that lesson too, I normally have a camera with me at all times, except at school, since I don't need to lug both the camera bag and book bag up and down all those stairs.

So, for my birthday trip to Williamsburg (actually on the spouse program for my wife's law firm meeting) I abandoned my Nikon D700 and all those MF lenses in favor of traveling light with the Fuji X Pro 1 and 3 primes. Bad move.
The camera performed flawlessly, and the images are very sharp with great dynamic range. However, walking down the main drag in Williamsburg, at 1:00 in the afternoon on a sunny day, tends to result in highly contrasted very bright images withf very little interest or warmth. Might as well of had my wife's X100. They all look like some tourist snaps.
One thing I did learn, is that 50mm is too close and 28mm is too wide. 35mm, if I had one, would have been just right. Also, the Fuji lenses, with their sexy looking lens hoods and rubber snap on covers, are difficult to change, despite their small size and weight. Things kept falling off. I will admit the camera and the Hadley Small look damn good and got lots of looks.
Any recommendations for a Nikon 35mm?
David, I've learned that lesson and I dare say most on this thread have. If you're going to invest in a DSLR system then why not take it everywhere! My theory is not to trust important trips by trying to go light. YMMV.
There's really only one answer IMHO on which 35mm. The 35mm f1.4 AI-s and I don't even own it. I'm judging by the fantastic images I've seen in this thread from the folks who have it. Now...if I were to choose an AF 35 it would most probably be the new Sigma 35/1.4.
James. Not sure if I want to try redoing my collection or not. First I'd need to clear off space to set them all up Beautiful product shot!

Every time I take one of these...the line up changes. Shot with the D800 and the 50mm ais, but missing a few additions.
Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

In order of appearance, Rocky, Higgs, Nancy, Margaret and Orcus (the crazy dog)
There is another unseen Montgomery in the picture, but she will not be making an appearance until the end of next month. Margaret is pregnant. THe little girl, who's name I cannot disclose, is getting very active. I felt her moving around in my daughter's belly STRANGE!!!!
Bummer James. Maybe you can uninstall it, then reinstall it, or have Windows repair it. I'm a big fan of it myself.

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