Hello all! I haven't dropped by to chat in awhile, but I still am taking time at least every day or two to peruse all of the new images that are posted. So much wonderful work is showing up here each day.

I've been doing some senior and family jobs lately and I can only add to what Georg, Tony, and several others have shown, MF glass is great for the business of photography:


Probably 40% of my shooting for paid jobs is going through the 50/1.2, 5% with the 180/2.8. I really should pull out my 105/2.5 too... The newer G glass has been nice for dealing with shots with lots of point light sources, backlighting, etc. and I've been tempted to swap the 50/1.2 for the newer 50/1.8G. I'd be very sore to trade my favorite lens though, so for now I stick to 85mm if I'm going to shoot straight into the sun

Also, if anyone wants a very nice, clean copy of the 50-135, mine is listed on the B&S board as I just don't use it enough to justify keeping it. I find that I am too much of a prime shooter.

Ray, Jose, Scott, Paul and Mike - thanks for your comments on the pianist-shot! Really much appreciated.

Peter, another really nice set!

Jeff, great to see you're posting again. Hope the eye-surgery went well. Love your fine image of the "bunch of boats".

Ronny, love the delicious shallow Depth-of-Field on your images with the 180/135's! Nice to see that spring has arrived in Sweden too :-)

Huddy, nice to hear/read from you! Lenses with a special rendering like the 50/1.2, the 24/2 and others have for sure a place in portraiture (in my opinion).
But sometimes AF or more recent optics are handy too (my favorite portraiture-lens right now is the 28/1.8G - thanks for your recommendation over at the 28mm- or AF-S-lenses love film-thread).

Leighton, your Onions-shot made me hungry (that's a compliment ;-).

Rafael, wow, that 200/4 QC on your F2 is a beauty The "Enchanted elfin forest" is wonderfully captured.

John, can't get enough of your sunset-panos!

Curtis, you're clearly on a roll with those strange looking old lenses ;-) Nice work, I really enjoy the variety of your shots!

Scott, very nice set! Hard to pick a fav - maybe it's the moose acting as a weathercock.

Chuong, beautiful flower-shot! You guys here made me re-think the use of the 300/4.5 - it was for me just a long-distance lens.

Georg - I really like the sunburst shot. The B&W conversion is top-notch as well.

Ronny - Both are good but the 135mm has that "look" to it!

Alan - Good to see you again, I can't believe you're selling the "little gem"!

Hi gang, it's good to be back. Here's a quick one from the roof of the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla. In case you have any doubts, I have it on good authority that, yes, this is fine art.


Good to have you back Jeff. I hope your eye is much better. Nice shot BTW.

Wow. It doesn't pay to look away for an instant. 12 pages later I can only say the amazing work that gets posted here only seems to get better and better. I wish I could give every photo the credit it deserves but there's too many!
I will only make one comment:
John, Peter (USA), I hope you guys make a climb together, I can't wait to see the shots from that trip. It'll be amazing the two of you bouncing ideas off each other.

P.S. Curtis, thanks for your mail, received and it looks great - sorry I haven't had a moment to reply but when my wife is back later this week then I will have a spare few minutes!

Getting used to the 24mm, so far I seem to have trouble focussing it, but that could be my eyes. But I did get one shot I felt half-way worthy, of my favorite subject. I like the colour and out of focus rendition of this lens. Can't wait to try it out with a bit more time and not a fast moving subject!

The 28 AFS is a very handy lens, especially now that I find it difficult to focus WA lenses on an SLR. It's so much easier on a rangefinder! I've used it to great effect for some environmental portraits in my sessions. Those aren't shown here of course

Ah, but for me the, 50/1.2 is the favored gem.

Alan, sorry, I've called you "huddy" above. Your last post here was a too long time ago ;-)

I had trouble with focusing WA also. So I went back old school, used the range markings on the lens and focused accordingly. Keeper rate has gone up, unfortunately apertures have gotten smaller...

No harm Georg; I've been called much worse by those who do know me! It has been too long and my limited shooting time has been dominated by Leica's and Pentax 6x7's.

Georg - First glance without reading, I thought it was from the 24mm f2.

Close, but no cigar Out of focus highlights in the corners are even more triangular-shaped with the 24/2. Fun-lenses - I love the old fast MF-Nikkor's.

Here's a couple of flower shots along with a bird offering I used the 300mm 4.5 EDIF on them all, however the flower shots I added a 36mm Vivitar tube
