Thanks Matt - I know I'm a very lucky guy. Although I find myself sitting here at 11:30 at night working for a couple of hours while on vacation in order to afford it . . . .

The next meeting of the Nikon MF lens shooters took place last night in Zurich when I had the opportunity to meet a very nice gentleman called Philip (Philipj) who was in the neighbourhood. He had with him a very beautiful companion, a 105mm f1.8 which is a stunning piece of glass.
We had the chance to have a short walk around the centre of Zurich and I hope I left him with a very positive view of the city, even if the weather didn't co-operate with us.
Below is the man himself with the 105mm late in the evening.

Zippy - I like the perspective of your 28mm image. I believe the 28mm f2.8 AI-s is another of the "desert island" lenses.

Scott - Very nice set, but the composition and conversion of the first one is REALLY good. You know...that used to be part of Virginia!

Curtis - I hope Sue doesn't wear you out.

John - Love the "Pedicure In The Sand" image. The toenails definitely makes it.

As soon as I scrolled down and saw your pic I thought, that kind of looks like Philip. I'm glad you two had the chance to meet and shoot a little. There's nothing like meeting the fine folks of this thread as some of us has had the pleasure of doing. I still think we ought to have a big reunion!

Scott, very cool shots of the old train! I like the first picture a lot, the framing with the sign up front is very nice.
We have a narrow-gauge railroad here, I'll take your fine shots as inspiration for a possible future shoot of it.

Curtis, love your bokeh-play with the 55/1.2! A viewing-pleasure for sure - thanks for sharing!

John, the "Post-Swim Contemplation" is a wonderful image. Somehow it has a very nostalgic feel to it: the shallow, but not superthin depth of field, the composition, the light - all together very moody and old-fashioned in the best meaning.

Mark, very cool meeting with Philip in Zurich! I hope his view of Zurich is a nice as your opinion about his fantastic 105/1.8 ;-)

Here's another one from yesterday evening, taken with the PC-E 45/2.8D too.

Regarding the 28mm f/2.8 AI-s, does anyone here perhaps know if it has an aspherical element in it's design?

I have been googling my fingers off trying to find a lens cross section diagram for the lens but can't seem to find one...

I don't believe it does. Just the CRC feature.

Thanks Leighton.

Jeff (Foggy) came in 3rd as well and with your entry a good week for the MF crowd - although I confess I used an AF lens on mine.
I loved your entry, it was very atmospheric. I think one of the other posters said it best when he said it was effective on several levels at once.

One of these days I'm going to have to figure out this weekly assignment thing to see whether I can participate. Always good to run into friends elsewhere on this site. I'll have to check out the recent assignment and see what you fellows are up to. No doubt Leighton's image is first rate. I even recognize that setting from an earlier photo. Great location.

I'll drop a few more photos on the thread beginning with more bokeh play from last Sunday created with a wide open 55 f/1.2 S.C. AI'd. I'm still very infatuated with that lens. It is a joy to hold and I'm never disappointed with what it creates.



And one taken with the 135 f/2.8 Q.C. AI'd during my walk with Sue at the Vedanta Retreat Center in Olema.


Now back to house cleaning...

Buddy, I've never used the 28/2.8 Ais, but did quite a bit of shooting with the 24/2.8. In my experience the neat 24/2.8 is quite sharp and at least stopped down to f/5.6 or f/8 you won't see much difference to the mighty 14-24/2.8 in terms of sharpness.
The fat 14-24 is more contrasty wide open, shows less distortion at 24mm and much less vignetting too.
That said, the 24/2.8 Ais is still a good lens. I like it's compact size and ability to take filters (I use an "over-built" Polarizer and sometimes Cokin-P gradual-ND-filters in the slim Cokin-P-holder). The

Vielen Dank Georg, and of course thank you to everyone who chimed in.

So basically either the 28 or 24 f2.8 AIs and the 28 f2.0 AIs are good choices if I want sharpness, contrast and low distortion and vignetting. IŽll have a look on ebay to see what I can find. I donŽt mind stopping down a bit. f5.6 sounds about ideal.

For camera transport I use Lowepro Toploader bags and they only carry the camera plus 2-3 lenses and a flash. I found that the 85mm f1.8 fits in the front compartment just fine so I guess stuffing in a 24 or 28 AIs for those days where I leave the 14-24 at home should not be a problem and greatly increases versatility of the gear I take with me on a hike.

Rostock is quite a bit away from Viersen. From the pictures you posted and which I have seen it looks like a nice place though.

@Jaredvanb, you can find a cross section of that lens here:

No aspherical glass in there by the looks of it.

Mark, very nice that you were able to meet each other. Like Leighton says it is nice to meet each other face to face.

Leighton, thank you for the comment.

Very nice Curtis, I noticed the circular ripples on the left, it's rather unique. What might that be? The wheel from your latest post? Or a table fan?
