I hope everyone who celebrates Easter had a great day. I hope everyone who doesn't celebrate the holiday had a great day too.

My 14 year old daughter lobbied hard for an Easter egg hunt. My 17 year old son and his cousin thought it was pretty ridiculous, but they sure enjoyed the candy.

Jose, Ray, Leighton, Ronny and Samy, thanks for the comments on the Shadow Hills shot.

Georg, I really appreciate your constructive critique and see exactly what you are saying. Here's another shot from the set that permitted a closer foreground placement of the rock and tree limbs via some cropping. Thanks!

The 400mm 5.6 AIS is certainly a wonderful lens. Between Curtis, John and yourself I am finding it very hard to resist seeking out a copy for myself - I must resist!



Resistance is futile Ray for one reason only. For your style of shooting this really is a must have lens. It is a bit heavier than the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF but is definitely hand holdable. I opted for a monopod but certainly a tripod isn't needed. And it is sharp wide open, so even with that length and an f/5.6 maximum aperture, it still produces lovely bokeh. It is also great with tubes. I know you'd have a great time with that lens. And guess what? KEH has a very sweet copy listed on E-Bay and is accepting offers...

Resistance is futile, though your bank account may complain...

OK, about ready to bite on a 25-50 4. It is an AI as opposed to an AI-s. Does that matter? I can wait...


Optically they are identical. And it seems you missed my earlier post in which I made that point and directed you to an E-Bay listing for a mint AI-s copy for a very fair price. You might want to scroll back a bit... that is, if you see this message. Good luck.

Love this one! Is there a way to have a bit more contrast to the scene - at least on my monitors it looks like it could use some. Other than that it's one of those landscapes that keeps me looking at it.

Recently got back home from a two month trip to Asia.
Just started going through and editing the pictures yesterday.

Here are a few shots from Kuala Lumpur with the 45mm PC-E:

Welcome! Better hide those credit cards in a big big bag of frozen water at the bottom of the freezer compartment, behind the Brussels sprouts!

Yes, resistance is futile, you will end up with one, especially now that you're dabbling in the world of FX
