That's the big gun Andy. If it has a 39mm filter and 3m minimum focus distance, it would be the last AI-s version of the lens. You can check the specifications for different versions here...

It is definitely not a light lens but a great performer if you can handle it. You certainly stole it if this was a straight up trade. It is worth around a thousand dollars...

Happy shooting and definitely share your work with it.

Thanks Leighton. I made that change plus added a bit more information. Since that area of the profile permits this much information, there is no reason not to use it. Now we need to encourage others who participate on this thread to use that feature to introduce themselves more fully. It will help if us "old-timers" do the same. You could even mention what you were doing before you became a farmer as well as the fact you have two grown daughters. You're an interested guy...

John, I amended my brief bio in my profile to make it a bit more of an introduction to myself. That might be all we need. You may wish to think about how you would introduce yourself to folks on this thread and amend your profile to include that information. That may be the simplest way to keep track of one another. Check out what I added to see what you think.



Good idea and I just augmented mine too.

Finally got around to testing out my OM21 on my D600. It is easier to focus that I expected. Definitely will keep this lens in my hiking kit, because it's teeny and IQ is great.

Hi Michelle, I'm not sure if you meant to post this in this thread or not. I'm sure you're aware that this thread is for Nikon MF lenses ONLY. Beautiful image though.

Philippe, awesome car shot, love the 80's film look.

Here's one from the 50mm f1.2 of a flower, since we probably don't have enough of them on this thread.

[edit] - found the partner shot. Both are wild poppies (which don't last long, hours at best)

Interesting comments on individual preferences for focal length. Two things I have picked up here and elsewhere:

- the predilection for using the short and long ends of zoom lenses, which I do myself

- a slight schism between those who prefer 28mm and those preferring 35mm: prevailing comments are that 28mm is for "pros" and 35mm for "laymen." Sorry, but I prefer 35mm, despite my earnest attempts to embrace the 28mm 1.8G and the 28mm 2.8 AI-s. Then again, I am certainly not a pro.

Anyway, I have made a bid on the 20 3.5AI-s offered by a fellow member. Thanks for

Personally I feel the 35 is rather something for pros and the 28 for those who need a wider lens to get that sense of space in their captures.

The 35mm focal length is more versatile. If you move in close it can work like a 50mm. If you step back a bit it can do pretty much everything a 28 can do. You need to work harder to make the 35mm focal length work with you. The 28mm focal length is easier in that regard.

I guess Im a "different zoomer". On my 80-200, which seems to be on my camera permanently these days, I find myself constantly framing my pictures between about 105mm and 170mm focal length. Even when I want to crop the frame tight I move to 200 then back off a bit.

Buddy, I am the same with my 80-200... Most of my shots are from about 135-180. I spend so much time at 180, that it is how I have it listed in my non CPU data list on my camera.

Perfect John!

The long timers can show the way. You tell us a bit about your life, your family, your work, your relationship with photography... all good. This may solve the problem for all of us.

I'd encourage everyone who is participating on this thread to take a few moments to expand the bio section of the site's profile to tell us a bit about yourself. Many months ago we had a round of "introductions" which proved to be quite entertaining. Since so many of us make this thread a photographic home, it is great to get to know one another. First names make for a great start but it has been wonderful getting to know folks with whom I'm spending time, even in cyberspace. And definitely tell us what is in your kit so we can make suggestions about how you spend your money...

You can check my recently expanded profile to get an idea of what I have in mind. You also can check John Hinkey's profile. He elaborated on his bio as well. Lots of great people on this thread.

You know, there is probably another good reason to back off from the end of the zoom range: most lens reviews point out weaknesses at the ends - primarily the long end, but backing away from the extremes is like not shooting wide open. Makes good sense...

Not much to offer for images. Took this over the weekend along the canal. I liked the look of this industrial light fixture at one of the locks. Used the 105 2.8 AIS macro wide open. Thanks for looking.

Not much for me either. Just wanted to take the 105mm f1.8 out for about a few minutes. Caught this little guy. 105mm+PK-13

WOW, 30 pages since my last visit 10 days ago ~3 pages /day !!!

Too lazy to comment all great images and conversations

I was in the countryside in a field trip with students, unfortunately not many time for shooting.

One nightsky shot far from big cities. I was trying to capture Scorpius constellation (Antares is the brighest star at ~centre), but I think the milkway portion of Sagittarius revealed more interesting. I used the scalloped 28/2.
