Fine work Peter I'm especially fond of the panorama. I've very impressed if your description is accurate. Holding five shots with a 105mm lens at 1/25th of a second is beyond me. There would definitely be some camera shake in there. This is stunning!

One more flower shot before heading to bed... with the lens that appears now to be glued to my camera, the 200 f/4 Q.C. AI-d... again shot wide open. Rhododendron flowers in the shade on a very warm day... It hit 92 degree Fahrenheit today, which is close to what happens to be the AVERAGE high temperature in much of Florida for about six months each year. Brave souls living down there...

Curtis, nice work with the 200/4 QC! I like especially http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/2831#11526454 this rose-shot.
No need to shoot with another of your fine lenses, as long as the venerable 200/4 fits your shooting style so well ;-)

Samy, thanks and congrats to your early 105/2.5P! The bokeh looks beautiful on your garden-shot!

Scott, thank you! Sorry, I'll pass on the 800/5.6 you've spotted ;-)

Ray from Ohio - I'm glad you like the fountain-shot. Your kinda minimalistic spring colors are a nice find - I like "simple" (in the best sense) images.

Ray from Florida - your fine blossoms-shot is a good reminder to try that 300/4.5 IF-ED finally at shorter distances.

Laura, congrats Time to shoot some rolls of film now to get something practical out of the chemistry-lessons?

Peter, as usual very nice mountain-images. I really like the first shot, love the framing including the shadows a lot.

Another shot from the archive, this one was taken 2009 during holidays in Sweden. It was a MF-lenses only vacation, for the D700 I just had a 20/3.5, a 28/2, the 50/1.2 and one of Nikki's sisters with me and didn't feel handicapped by the lens-selection.

A truly wet soggy day for Graduation but he made.
Mom wanted more outside Photos but it was not to happen
Bill Clinton gave a rambling speech took his money and was gone within 3 minutes of finishing
As he left the stage 8 secret service men surrounded him and they were surrounded by uniforms
Wonder what that cost the taxpayers and he still collects a check. Doesn't make sense to me
Anyway we made it through My 105 with a Tc14 and high iso

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").

Thanks Georg. I konw what you mean. Seeing things and people from a different perspective is why I like photography (and why I'm not particulary interested in the technical matters)

like the second image the most - eye contact out of the masses makes it. Seriously high iso - I never tried my D600 above 6400, but it seems to work alright.

as for the tax payers funding the protection of their living ex presidents, I imagine you have a more darwinistic view of things than others

Been too busy with work to stay up to date, did see the comments about the 8mm, this lens is actually not heavy at all, I love owning it and it takes very sharp photos on the D800 but it is hard to use creatively, once in a while I get a really nice shot. Its real use are three shot 360 degree panoramas, which I don't care for

But forget about the 8mm, I am now a member of the most exclusive lens clique ever, a proud owner of a 200 mm 1:4 QC ai converted. Only Jose and Curtis share this privilege.

The lens I bought on ebay for $32 had a big defect with a spacer between the front elements whacked out of place, but its ai kit #50 was in perfect conditon so the lens became an organ donor.

Hate doing ai conversions, particularly on philips head screws as I always mess at least one up. This time it happened again, but I have learned to drill and ream the little buggers out, shame for the 28mm NC that was lost in the learning.

Here is my old lens with the donated ai kit, as is customary in these occassions the closest focal length relatives party up.

No post on any of these.

The next one is a test at f/4 with a crop.

The crop, I will leave the detailed testing to Jose, but I am very happy with this lens, it is light, focuses like silk and fits the hand so well. It also transitions from in focus to out of focus areas with much grace.

Thanks Ray, Curtis, and Georg .

Georg, funny you mention film... one of the classes I'm taking in the summer session is Photography I, B&W Film, and Darkroom processing. ..


Reagan, there are five presidents getting that benefit right now, what with all the crazies out there, any of them is a target, along with their families. I believe former First Ladies also get that protection the rest of their lives. And on 10159 ISO!

Very nice images in the last day or so. Love the mountains, flowers, graduation day and "new" 200mm lens. Very busy last couple of days but next week off to the "fairest Cape" for a week of golf and eating. The camera will be along!

Phillippe - Ah Menerbes! Had a wonderful meal at a restaurant "Clementine". As Bob Hope would have said .."Thanks for the memories"..................

I took 204 pictures today...what stinks is 150 of them I forgot to change my lens data for. Sigh! Think I got some good stuff too, ran the gamut of styles too. Portraiture, macro, street... Hope to PP and post tomorrow.

Peter, another fine set of beautiful landscape-photographs! Personal favorite is the third shot, amazing textures on the hills and dramatic clouds to top it off.

Reagan, wow, that's quite a crowd in front of your lens ;-) Amazing what todays camera can deliver at high ISO-settings.

Philippe, that's a truly idyllic village on your fine photo.

Rafael, your gear-shots are pure eye-candy. Your copy of the venerable 200/4 QC seems to be a good performer (just like Jose's and Curtis' copies).

Laura, developing film is something special, almost magical for me. The moment when I have a very first look on the wet film still wound up on it's spiral (after the fix) is exiting every time, even after some thousands rolls of film.
I hope you'll like this experience as well.

Kevin, I hope to see a B&W-picture or two out of your 204 images too ;-)

I just had to test this lens some more, this is a TEST, Pleeasseee do not compare to anything Jose or Curtis do with the 200mm QC, especially Curtis' flowers.

I was fixing sprinklers, it got to be 92 here as well, it is down to 86Deg already. Had to fix them to keep plants alive.

Fully open

A crop of this, 100%.

Then I mounted it on the PN11, this combo provides a great working distance, about 5 feet and good single rose type magnification. This is at f/4. This is at standard pic control all factory settings no post processing other that convert to jpg
