Curtis, I'm younger than you so my hips must be better but unlike you I spent almost 28yrs under communism.

While I was a student I was the subject of a bad medical error: doctors confused a banal rheumatic illness with hip tuberculosis. The mistake was discovered 10 months later after they almost destroyed me with a treatment that was against my real problem. It took one more year to start over but I was only partially recovered.

Mihai, all the best to you on the surgery. You're demonstrating an attitude that more people could use, and at times that includes me. Amen to family and friends. Will say a prayer for you. Stay in touch here.

15 minutes with the 45/2.8 AI-P.

This lens is really resonating with me. Small, sharp, and easy to use. I've just been leaving it on my D800 and stuffing it in my laptop case - something I could not really do with the 50/1.8G because it sticks out too much from the camera. I also did not like taking my 50/1.2 AIS around because it also sticks out too much AND it's pretty heavy. The 45P is not fast, but it makes up for it in other ways it seems.

Thanks John. Those are very nice images and they are crazy sharp too. I have to admit that when Don put that lens up, I really wanted it but it wasn't the right time for me financially. I picked up the silver edition three days ago and it should be here tomorrow. I am excited.

Well, picked up the PK13. I haggled for a second and bought. I got it for about half of what KEH sells them for and got literally a brand new in box one. It was a spare, literally never used. Woohoo!!!

There is a very overpriced 45/2.8 AI-P at the local camera store. Nice lens, but I want to say they are asking $700 for it.

Yours sure is nice!

It's a great light weight accessory - can't go wrong with owning one for sure.

Thanks for the information, Curtis. You're right ... I need to just play with the program more and see what happens.

I am quite excited to try it out. Not only shorter focus distances, but reversing a lens on it too! Macro is what brought me back to photography (with a healthy side of this threads influence)...!

Nice, John.

I think this is the lens that will meter on bodies like the D40 etc, isn't it? Is this the one?

I nearly bough this lens once before but didn't. I think it would be cool to use on a small dx body.

Yes that's the one - it has a CPU so it's fully compatible with any modern DSLR. Mine is the black version. Surprisingly I've seen two of these black versions go for sale here on FM in the last month or so. I managed to grab mine for $325 - I think because it did not come with the box nor Nikon clear filter (so what!).

The black one is rarer too. I have only seen the silver one. I found it to be decent, but not as good as my slightly larger Series E 50mm. If you want a nice pancake, check out the 50E.

Well taken Ray, even though I loathe graffiti and the vandals who regard it as their right to deface other peoples property.

You can be really happy that Graffiti is rare in your town - it's a major pain over here. Some cities seem to have kinda "artistic" sprayers in their community, this is unfortunately not true for my hometown.
