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!

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).


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

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


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.

A little bokeh-drama fresh from the garden:

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

Nice images everyone.

Leighton, I like the green onions and salad spinner. That spinner is certainly industrial sized compared to the one in our kitchen! Glad you liked the barn shot. I did think of you when I took it.

Ray, nice glass marble image. The reflections within it are very neat.

Jeff, I like the "boat" sculpture. I trust your eye surgery went well. I hope your recovery is speedy.

Ray (OH), thanks for the comment on the skunk cabbage. It was the only color in that part of the woods. Everything else still was winter gray.

Georg, I really like the yellow bokeh drama. I prefer the color version although the b&w is very nice as well. Thanks for the comment on the weathervane image.

A local farm that has been made into a nature museum. Taken at sunrise. Not sure if I like the angle of light and the amount of tree that I put in the frame. Taken with the 28 2.8 ais at f8. C&C welcome.

Glad it arrived safely. If we go forward with something along the lines of what I wrote, I'll give you a second draft that has the correct sequence for lens movement in Europe. I'd forgotten a change made by Philippe, Mihai and Don. You're the man who controls the timing of all of this so whatever works for you will work for the rest of us.
