So the 300 f/4.5 H AI'd arrived this afternoon and I had to take it for a short spin. Apart from the fact it arrived with a broken UV filter and had a couple of small dents in the lens hood that weren't disclosed, the lens is in beautiful condition with perfect glass and no internal problems. The focus ring is a bit stiff, but I expect that to improve with time. Here is a photo taken with the 50 f/1.2 AI-s of the 300 next to its smaller cousin from the same era, the 200 f/4 Q.C. AI'd.

More great shots from Curtis Steadyhands!

This is one of the reasons I like the 28mm 2.8 AI-s over the 28-50mm. You can get MUCH closer on the wide end.

I couldn't agree more! Jose, your images have always been a source of inspiration to me.

After my last vacation, I am going to be selling off a lot of my gear, starting with lenses. I will be posting them for sale here next payday (so I can pay for the ability) but if any of you are interested in anything in my kit shoot me a message. I know there are some newcomers here...

As to why. I spent a day with just my D7000 and my 50/1.8E (my lightest lens) and ended up with neck pain (using a VERY

Oh Kevin what a shame. Is there no way you can set up a "mini studio" and take the subjects to your camera? You are such an very good photographer that we can't lose you from this thread. Look at Strad's images of flowers - I'm sure you can match those with your skill.

Thinking about you.

Oh no, look who got an evening off and remembered he had some MF glass? I wish I had slept more than an hour last night they may have been better. I almost forgot how to MF these things! All with the 105MM F1.8 and of my favorite subject who after almost 30 days of being sick is back to being himself.

Hey Matt - so good to see Brandon full of concentration and mischief! Hope you guys are both fine.

Nikkor 50mm f1.2 @ f2 (the Rolleicord is not mine, but from a friend)

This is the kind of image with "cinematic look" of the f1.2 I like most.



Very nice image of a very nice camera.

Took a tour of the state capital today. Had the Nikkor-S 35/2.8 non-AI mounted. I used yet another different neck strap. Very thick padding. Was able to have it sit lower on my neck. Lasted longer with this strap. Will post those along with my vacation shots hopefully today.

Does anyone have experience with the Ai 18mm Nikkor lenses? I really like the focal length and wonder if those work well on digital.

Thanks Leighton, the musicians did the hard work, I just showed up and picked angles to shoot from Then the really hard work of editing came in to play, and it's definitely something I need to work on, but later.

It has a tendency to heavy vignetting - on film and digital. Needs to be stopped down a lot to get decent corner illumination. Apart from that a decent lens, but I find it overpriced for the performance it delivers.

Freshly made prints, only several hours old. Rolls of film were developed yesterday, and printed during class today.

Rafael - What is a "pupusa de loroco"?


Really yummy. Think of it as a tortilla stuffed with cheese (and loroco buds). Out here, at least, loroco isn't too common. Cheese, bean, and ground pork (chicharron) are the most common fillings. Typically served with curtido (think along the lines of Salvadorian sauerkraut) and some manner of smooth salsa.



(the pupusa is in the middle)

Scott, beautiful images from Williamsburg. You should of used this one for the curves assignment, it's really quite good.

Tip for anyone considering visiting Williamsburg. Do NOT go in the Summer!


Leighton, I will definitely second that! It was in the 90's and humid while we were there. Much nicer over your way. Thank you for the comment.

Preview from today. State capital building peaking around some trees. I liked the 1130am light, was a little harsh, but it made the sky pop. Took this after spending nearly two hours walking many floors of the capital building...

Lovely image Leighton. Nice close up and background. Wonderful color and sharpness. My 28-50 does not get much use either since I got the 28 2.8 ais. It is a nice little zoom but the 28 2.8 ais and the 50 1.4 SC are a nicer combo.
