Hi everyone,

Been spending the last few weeks going through this epic thread of Nikon MF lens awesomeness, and have finally plucked up the courage to share two of my better MF photos that I have taken.

Body is a D5100 with a 50mm f/1.8 Series E lens... Really impressed with the sharpness of this tiny little lens...

Hoping to find a 28mm f/2.8 AI-s lens in the near future though.

Regards
Jared

Welcome Jared! We're honored that your first post was with us. And what nice images too. The 28mm you want to get next is one of the best from Nikon, you won't be disappointed.

One more thing, you may want to try to keep your images at around 1000px on the long edge, just makes it easier for those on laptops.

Yay! Another Series E person... I have 3 of the focal lengths and really enjoy them. Welcome to the addiction...

Hi Leighton,

Sorry about that... I have tried to edit the post but I see now that it makes the images not show up... Will have to try and setup a photobucket account or something similar with smaller sized shots.

Thanks for the kind words too!

Thank you as well for the welcome Leighton and kwoodard.

Not to worry Jared. A lot of us are on Flickr and often comment on each others work there.

Okay, so I have created a Flickr account.

How do I edit my message so that the photos show up in the message now? Trying to get it right but no go...

Regards
Jared

When you are signed into Flickr and you are looking at your picture. There is a button in the lower right that looks like a square with an arrow coming out of it. Click on the button and select "Grab the HTML/BBCode" Copy the code in that window and paste it into your reply here on the boards.

The 15mm saga continues, even though the lens is working well I decided to have Nikon fix it 100%, they charged $450, it is enough to replace one element instead of cleaning it the best they could. Here is the issue for reference, I sent these pics to Nikon, they always answer correspondence on their support site, Nikon requested photos to evaluate. Taken with 55mm 3.5.

The good lens a 15mm 5.6

The not so good lens, the 15mm 3.5, this is not seen unless a really bright light is used. This is not and was not caused by fungus, I am an optics trained engineer, this is a factory defect in the coating.

I canīt stand haze.

The difference is obvious enough.

I had a real horror trip trying to find a fast tele lens for my camera.
First I bought a Nikon AF 180 f2,8 but on delivery found out it suffered from fungus.
Nikon didnīt want to clean it, but the seller said he could. I sent it back to the seller. Got the lens back with messed up threads, scratches on the glass and the fungus not removed.

Then I bought a Tokina 80-200 but found out it suffered from haze.
Sent it back to have it replaced. The replacement suffered from a centering defect and haze.

I still own a Sigma 28mm with haze on a single element.

The 15mm lens is awesome enough. I hope you find a lot of joy using it now that itīs fixed

Samy - very nice series but I've lost faith in the Smithsonian and may have to return my T shirt!

The Jaguar looks suspiciously like a leopard and the meal is definitely an impala which is an African antelope...
