Some fun on a rainy day. In between down pours I put the 105mm 2.5 P on my D600. I was really surprised how much I like this lens on full frame. It has gone from a lens I was never too fussy about to one I really enjoy using. The only downside is that I wish it focused closer. I guess I now I really understand Curtis and his tubes

Great stuff Ray! You are doing wonderful work with the D600.

Love your close work with the D600 Ray. I'm not surprised that you'd find a new relationship with the 105 not that you're shooting FX. I own four lenses at that focal length, at least in part because I love it so much. Of course, NMFAS which has been much discussed of late, probably had something to do with it...

I visited a friend his morning and saw these flowers as I was leaving. I had to walk to my car to pick up my camera so I could take a few shots. I mounted the 135 f/2 AI-s, first

What a sharp and colorful shot - amazing!

Anyone looking for a bit of reach, there is a 600mm 5.6 Ai on the BS board.

Thanks guys, the other dog’s actually Oolong’s elder sister (wife says the eyes are a dead giveaway ).
We borrowed her from her owners for half a day, going to the beach and such (AF only sorry)
She’s a lil’ shy, and took her a bit to warm up to us naturally, foreign environment and alien handlers
But she recognises my wife, so followed the sound of her voice to look at the camera
Treats came later

Mike your Aurora Borealis photos are breathtaking. You honor us by sharing them on this thread. That they were taken with the wonderful MF Nikkors we're celebrating here is inspiring. You mention modifying your kit, selling a couple of MF lenses and adding the 20 f/2.8D. I wonder it you can't get where you want to go with the 20 f/2.8 AI-s. I ask selfishly, because the MF lens would permit you to continue sharing these images, but the AF lens doesn't. I imagine you have your reasons. If you're using it for real estate work there may be some

I have not dug into the optical formula differences if any between the 20mm AIS, AF, and the AF-D. I use speedlights in i-TTL so the AF-D would be the best choice there. I do prefer to use AI, AIS lenses for the cold night work as I don't feel too bad when they frost over at -35°. The 24mm and 28mm and 35mm all have nasty distortion wide open that forces me to give up 2 stops to get pin point stars. Only the Noct is relatively distortion free at ƒ/1.2

I still have boat loads of MF Nikkors but I would be posting fewer Aurora shots.

I don't even know where to begin with comments, there have been so many good shots! Jose's continuing Pompeii series, Ray rocking the D600 and Mike's beautiful aurora borealis shots were some of the standouts.

Some of my early results with the Nikkor-Q 135mm f/2.8. Most of these are at 5.6.

Thought the weather here in Seattle has been somewhat cooperating, my schedule has not, so I've missed a bunch of shooting opportunities both during the day and night time.

Managed to stuff the 400/5.6 ED AI in my camera bag along with my laptop down at the beach the other day. CPL on and hand held, thus the ISO. Nothing super interesting, but at least it's something!

I certainly know that feeling! Glad to see you got out for a little bit at least. I liked this one.

I really like this one Ray. I too found that the 105 FL was like discovering a whole new lens, I just don't seem to get mine mounted enough.
