I think you should keep the 55 Peter, especially at that price. It is a versatile lens and a nice focal length for walking around campus. Wonderful set with a bit of whimsy, which is always welcome. I've only visited Madison once and that a weekend jaunt with a bunch of college friends from Minneapolis. I grew up in Richfield, a suburb to the south of the city but left a long time ago for warmer climes... Seeing your mountain photos it is clear you have no aversion to snow and cold, but actually seek it out. I don't

thanks Curtis, I do plan to keep the lens, although it is not going on any mountain climbs. Regarding cold - Minnesota is stupid cold and literally in a different climate zone (Madison is that little greed dot at the bottom of WI in this map). We don't have natural air conditioning here like you do, but you can dress for the cold, not for 100F with 100% humidity. Biggest advantage of the cold - it kills bugs dead once a year. The winters are just a little too long for me - I grew up in central Germany where the trees get green in April. We are just starting to see the trees get leafs here in mid May now.

Finally spring - even in the concrete canyons downtown (55mm again)







we even have flowers now

Hello!

I am interested in extending my reach with my Nikon MF lenses a bit. Want to get an extender for macro photography, and a conversion for telephoto.

The lenses I have now that are best candidates for this are the 105 2.5 AI-s, the 135 2.8 AI-s, and the 180 2.8ED AI-s. Obviously, I will want to use the tele convertor on the 180 (if possible) and maybe it is the best candidate for macro as well.

What say you?

PS. Have a 50-135 3.5 AI-s coming soon!

Rafael you have an amazing collection of lenses beautifully displayed!
Phillippe love the colors in your boat photo. I can see how this caught your eye.
Leighton you have done a wonderful job with the Nikki Blog. Very professionally done!
Peter those autos are beautiful and the pano sunset - amazing!
Leighton I guess I am going to have to get Lightroom 5 cause that looks cool!
Georg great photos especially the camels. I love going to the zoo!
Peter these photos are among your best especially the water photo and the building glass - so cool!
Curtis the bird of paradise is just wonderful - such color!
Thank you leighton and Samy. I really enjoyed using the 35mm at the beach. I used very minor post work.

Samy, Scott, Peter, Curtis and Leighton - thanks for your words on the zoo-shots!

Peter, the lemur (a "she", she even carries a newborn under her belly) was for the very first time on the new open-air enclosure.
Every crow at the sky made her running for cover - these animals need some time to be comfortable with their new home. The eyes are always amazing.

Here's another shot from the zoo - no animals this time, just some fresh green in B&W ;-)

I've tried a light processing here - 35/1.4 at about f/8 on the V1
It's just another experiment to create a sunburst/sunstar with an unsharp background.

Ray, thanks for your comment! Yes, going to the zoo is wisely spent time ;-)
Your sunset is gorgeous, the wet beach looks like liquid metal.

Peter, great stuff taken with the venerable 55/1.2! I really love the "bokeh-berry" and the "tracks to nirvana".

Not no expert on teleconverters for the 180, but I am sure something will fit, even if it is made by Kenko. For macro, just about any tube will do - for longer lenses you will need longer tubes, for wide angles very thin extenders. Usually they come in a set of various lengths. Pretty much any brand will do - there's nothing special about these things unless you want to use AF lenses as well, which is when you need extenders that pass the pin contacts through to the body.

Curtis, love the first shot with the 200/4 QC and tube. The colors are fantastic indeed.

One more bokeh fest with the 55mm f1.2. The fire department's hookup at the new power station, still all shiny.

f2 1/2500s ISO 100







and in color up close

f1.2 1/4000s ISO 100







in 100% zoom I noticed some crud in the bokeh rings far left - I assume what I see here is dirt in the lens? Healing brush took care of it

Peter, love the B&W hookup! Shiny metal works usually very well in B&W, your picture is the best proof.

Yes, it's a mirror. The images on the other side are backlit.

almost forgot this bokeh shot - no vignette was added here (it just got amplified by the processing). 55mm f/1.2 @f/1.2 1/2500s with polarizer. Atmospherical Sciences building next door to my office.

I am looking for help identifying this lens. Many people think it is a WW2 Japanese aerial lens.


I have more images and info here. Any help would be appreciated.

Adam, the lens certainly is a monster! And it's the right colour for military use but the only thing i wouldn't expect in a WWll lens is the Eurpoean alphabet - unless Nikon thought the war was lost and were doing some advance marketing if they got captured

Nice blog.

there's another thread here, somebody else asking about the same lens.

most likely aerial recon lens from WW2 and it won't mount on your D800
