Upload & Sell: Off
Just got a chance to look at some of the images I took today with the new to me Nikkor-Q 135mm f/2.8 that has been AI'd. Some images look OK, others are out of focus. This lens is very difficult to find critical focus through the viewfinder. I am going to try "DOTune" to see if I can even get the green focus indicator even into the ballpark. Here are a few SOC (literally, these are the JPEGs the camera produces, not a darn thing done to them except upload to Flickr)

I also got more stuff today (all free to me, nobody shoots Nikon in the photography department, they have no need of any of it, so they gave most of it to me). I got another Series E 50mm, but it has seen better days. Looks like coffee or hot cocoa was spilled on it. Needs to be cleaned BADLY. I also got a Stroboframe, seems to be an off-camera flash mount. Not sure if I will ever use it. Attached to it was a Nikon SC17 flash cable. Now this was something I have been interested in acquiring. I have an old SB18 Flash that I pulled out of mothballs and decided to try it out. For being as old as it is, works surprisingly well. I never have used a flash, so I don't really know what I am doing, but I will learn. Looking at the pinout, I am guessing there are 5 wires inside that cable and I am thinking of splicing in some old CAT5 to increase my range (since I am on a shoestring budget, cannot afford a wireless trigger). If my math is right, I should be able to go about 45 feet. Interesting possibilities.
