Hi All,

Been a while since I had the chance to get the camera out. Managed yesterday and it promply started raining so I put it back and very soggily went home again, but I do have 2 sets of photos I have been wanting to share from Garda and Verona in Italy

This set is from the city of Verona. I've shared some before from Verona with the 50mm but these are a few from parts I didn't get to last time, specifically the castly and the famous balcony.

These are all with the 35-70mm and it rained all the time +

Love the look on the guys face

The statue made me think about one in my hometown, I've shot it/her a couple of times now. Here are two shots from 2009:


a bit too much flare for my liking - D700, Ais 20/3.5 at f/8



D700, one of my two Ai'd 105/2.5's wide open
I asked a friendly lady with a camera to pose for me in the background - she is rendered a bit too unsharp.
We exchanged the pictures later ;-)

This fountain-figure (or fountain sculpture) is from 1922, it was created by an artist known for his war-memorials.
Stolen 1993 (probably not for it's beauty, rather for it's value as scrap-metal), remodeled and stolen again 2005, this one is from 2007.

Georg that second shot has some amazing lighting. Although the lady is out of focus I am sure that the bokeh would not look as nice stopped down. I love the rounded lights!

Mark, very nice set from Verona! The 35-70 has some wild bokeh (very appealing to me - reminds me of the 35/1.4 in this matter).
Love the guys look on the Juliet-shot. "Castle and river" would make a perfect subject for a stitched pano.

Rafael, I'm in love with the pictured action-finder Wow, very cool set-up. Thanks for sharing pictures of your gear!

Ray, I prefer the second version of the nightly scene by a wide margin.

John, at first i've thought $47 refers to the price of a print-shop (a picture well worth to get printed fairly large). I like the second shot a lot too.
Sorry about the sneaky "parking enforcement person". Chuong is right on the money - sell the picture to the city.

Samy, while the goose looks good in color too, I still prefer the B&W-version.

Ray and Kevin - thanks! The old 105/2.5 did very well here, I'm not sure that the same picture taken with a 85/1.4, the 105/1.8 or the 135/2 would look much better in terms of bokeh.
The light was really harsh this day (as seen in the wide-angle-shot) and I usually shoot against the light under this conditions. I took some pictures with the 50/1.2 Ais as well, but those lack character.

Samy,

I think Jose has the 600/f5.6 - saw a lot of his posts on this site and others. The 500mm f4 is a lens a good friend owned back in the 90s and I know it can deliver the goods, but I always felt my Canon's 600mm reach (or 840 with 1.4x) was better suited for what we did (motorsports). The 1.4 was really perfect, hard to notice on any shots. 2x converters were soft and we rarely used them, and apparently these days that is still true even for the latest glass.

Since I posted this morning, I've found a

Peter, not much to add here, since I have the 600/5.6 ais, not the f/4 version. Anyway, I just suggest you to consider the TC14E, filling off a small metal tab allows this TC to work flawlessly with any long MF lens. I suppose optics are slightly better than the TC14B.

Thanks Philippe, Leighton, Georg, Ray (Ohio), Scott, Ray, Samy, Ronny, Peter (SA) and Jeff for the very kind words.

Ray (Ohio), loved the Azalea 3;

Scott, for me your 50/1.4 SC has a beautiful bokeh;

Samy, loved the B&W goose portrait;

Kevin, great shots with the 80-200/4.5;

Philippe, another great set with "Nikki's sister";

John, crisp and sharp pano with the 45/2.8;

Mark, loved the Verona set and the history lesson.

Well, my real reason for stopping was to continue testing of my 24-85GVR and 24-85G non-VR against each other, but I had (as is the usual nowadays) the 45/2.8P on the D800 so I snapped a few pictures first with it before switching over to the AF zooms.

I had not used either of these zooms in a while and now that I've used them a bit I now fully appreciate how fantastic primes are . . . .


John, I made some quick, not scientific tests with the new 24-85 VR vs. the 50-135ais & 75-150E at 85mm, and the result was a big shame to the new "plastic fantastic 24-85VR"...
Even my old (and often maligned at internet) 24-85mm f/2.8-4 AF-D was slightly better.
It could be just my copy N=1 (the D600 kit lens of the Adorama bargain prices at the end of 2012), but anyway I profited some good money, since sold it for about USD 700.00 here in Brazil (more money to buy MFNG )

Just picked up a Nikon 135mm f/2.8 AI and here are a couple using it on my d600. I'm still trying to get the manual focusing down and kids is a great way to practice!


1/2000s f/2.8


1/1250s f/2.8


1/1250s f/4.0

Welcome and nice shots Bill. I have the 135 2.8 AI as well and although it isn't my favorite lens I like it much better on the D600 than I did on the D7000. It can be quite a challenge to use especially with children running about. You have done quite well in these photos, especially the second one!

Ray

Philippe, the "Cafe"-image is one of your unique multidimensional shots that make me think more about seeing things than taking pictures (pardon my "English").

Philippe, Jose and Jeff - I'm glad you like the fountain-shots.

I know, right? I can't "street shoot" very well, but whenever I try, Philippe's work always pops into mind.
