Curtis you need to make this slogan into a T-Shir and sell it to all us MF Nikkor-toting guys . . .


That's a great idea, though I'd likely have to give them away because I can't imagine anyone actually wanting to buy one.

Your name came up a moment ago as I refreshing a list I keep of MF lens purchases. I note in the list where the lens came from and I was having difficulty getting the numbers to add up correctly until I realized that ONE lens came to me via a recommendation from you that led me to a Seattle camera store where I bought the 400 f/5.6 ED-IF AI-s lens. Thanks again John. The floppy hood is not a problem for me and the price was so ridiculously low that I'm still amazed.

Maybe I'll work on that T shirt. It might be an enjoyable design exercise, if nothing else...

Curtis, great framing with the prison as artistic "anchor point" and the ship steaming into this direction (is this a bow wave?). Your B&W-conversion works very well for me.


Thanks Georg. Yes, that is a bow wave... Here's a closer shot of the freighter from another capture.


There are a number of refineries at the edge of the bay and farther away on the Sacramento river that feeds the bay. There is quite a bit of freighter traffic and the ships definitely clip along.

Gorgeous photos Jeff. That, of course, is what these lenses were designed to do. Beautiful.

Jeff, beautiful scenery, love the Velvia-colors.

Curtis, the "single shot" is wonderful too. Love the horizontal layers of clouds, mountains, fog and sand bar.

I've spent quite some time to look at a ship that will leave the city tomorrow towards a scrap-wharf (put out to sea was scheduled for today).
Many spectators aground and on the water were waiting to say goodbye. A small classy wooden boat caught my eyes, it was probably built in the 30's.
I'm happy that this old launch had more luck than the ship behind it.

Thanks Georg. The water at the bottom of the image is from Corte Madera Creek that flows through my home town of San Anselmo. My home is about five and a half miles from the Ferry Terminal where I was standing when I took these. I always enjoy the bay best when there are clouds and fog with which to work. They definitely make for interesting conversions.

Wonderful photo above as well. BW is really your bread and butter, as we might say. It works well for you and you consistently share with us very fine work, that definitely is inspiring.

I just found out today that the old 35mm f/2.8 Non-AI will fit onto my D7000 without being modified. The aperture ring is very narrow and slips under the Indexing tab. So, the lens is usable completely manually. The indexing tab hits the rabbit ears, so it indexes (just not correctly). Going to see if I can use this to my advantage.

***UPDATE***

Built up a little AI stop between f11 and f16, waiting on the superglue to dry. (I am very good with glue, it is only where I want it, and totally reversible if I need to remove it.) Then its on to testing!

Great images everyone.

Philippe, like the b&w lamp image.

Ronny, the ducklings are very cute.

Kevin, the colors in the brown-eyed susan are great.

Peter, nice old train loco and station image.

Ray, wonderful butterfly image.

Leighton, great images from the farm market and of the haying.

Curtis, beautiful lens collection.

Jeff, great twilight image. Nice colors.

Samy, nice series.

Georg, I like the Georg Buchner image. The wood power boat in the foreground is sweet.

I'm thinking that perhaps a better piece of apparel would be a baseball cap, or perhaps a coffee mug, or perhaps a tattoo for the truly afflicted . . . .

Another shot from Friday night: 45/2.8P hand held pano from a different viewpoint of downtown Seattle early in the evening before the lights came on in the buildings.

Would have taken more from this area, but the creeps come out when the sun goes down and I didn't feel like exposing my camera bag with $5K worth of gear in it . . .

45/2.8 AI-P @ f/5.6, ISO 100, 1/250 sec on a D800

Actually got out into the mountains yesterday, but it was going to be a tough slog in some potentially nasty weather, so the heavy FX gear stayed at home - not worth carrying it if there would be nothing to see for the most part. Instead the (sorry!) m43 gear went along:

Three guys, one very experienced, got caught in an avalanche near the top in this very same spot about a 5 weeks ago with the experienced guy being killed and buried. They fell about 1,300 ft down the mountain - they just found his body two weeks ago. Always have to be careful out there . . .

Brought the film camera to one of the arboretums here, also put the D3 in the bag. Longest lens I had with me was the 105 f/2.5. Went to climb the tower there to get my bird's eye view shots. Got those done, was talking to someone who also climbed the tower, and he was telling me about the deer he got pictures of a couple weeks ago, from the tower. He leaves, I continue looking out the tower, don't see any deer, and finally go down, and start walking the path back to the parking lot. What looked like a bird house down low caught my eye, so I went over to look at it a little closer, and discovered it is actually a bee nesting block. No bees came out of it, so all well and good. Turned to leave, and found myself looking a doe not more than 20 feet from me. D3 was in the bag, without a lens on it. N90s only has black and white film on it, and the 85 f/1.4 was on it Managed to get the bag open, get the D3 out, put the 105 on it, and start shooting. The doe just kept right on munching like I wasn't even there. Finally, she crossed the path in front of me, now about 12 feet away, then sauntered down into the tall grass on the other side. Once she was far enough away, I quietly walked away totally stunned that I was that close... no crops.

Yes Leighton, I know... Sworn enemy

This is how I use my 50 2 s and the 20 ud, slip under the ai tab. I just allow the ai tab to engage the rabbit ears, and dial -3 and -4 compensation respectively. The aperture does not close below f8, but that is fine with me.

Got my little tab done, but the sun had already set. Had a mild storm come though, made for some dramatic clouds.

Nikkor-S 35mm f/2.8 @f/8 (this one goes down to f/16) I like its feel a lot. Can't wait to see how it does in the sunlight.

Incredible series Laura.

Well, I am greatly motivated by the discovery that the 20mm UD is very competent on the D800, So I decided to go spend the day in my favorite California mission, San Juan Capistrano. The thing is that this mission has large grounds with a beatiful ruin, a working school and a new church. Did not find the gardens as well kept as they used to be.

The original mission church was destroyed by an earthquake, and the large building adjoining were eventually abandoned, I used to spend time in Antigua Guatemala, a 100 times bigger version of these ruins, also abandoned after an earthquake, but so beautiful today.

Will do three postings, the first is just Fray Juniperro Serra in the new and the old chuch.

And the final posting of the day, the general views of the old church and the chapel altar, just like being in Guatemala.

20mm UD on D800. incredible performance. far better at 3.5 than the 18mm 3.5 ais.
