Peter, congrats to your new 600/4! Wow, it looks really clean - I've seen some really banged up long Nikkors (400-600mm) lately. Good job with the 135/2.8Q - the cow is very nicely captured and the "Diner & Bakery" too. The bullet-hole is amazing.
Curtis, the Sonnar in Nikkor-housing looks strange indeed. Over at the alt-forum some wildly modded lenses can be seen too - Zeiss-Optics for the Contax G-models in vintage housings as an example. I have the highest respect for people who do this mods, but I for my part will not pay premium just for "looks".
Kit building is forever indeed - I have my eyes on the PC-E 45/2.8, just can't make up my mind up if I should pay so much money for a "special purpose lens". But the 85/2.8D is so much fun already... ;-)
Leighton, great job on the flowers!
James, you have some beautiful models in your studio ;-) Great work
Ron, your long-distance flower-shot is amazing.
Philippe, I like the springy, airy look of your flower-image a lot.
Jeff, love your Sea-Dog-captures, especially #1! We have very few seals here, but their population is growing. I have probably a dozen (mediocre) shots of seals in their natural habitat and well over thousand pictures taken at the zoo or the local seal- research center ;-)
Mark, I like the portrait of your son a lot - completely lost in science.
Bill, very nice set!
