Samy, wow, what a cool shot of your cat: a full circle Love the B&W architecture-shot. The 28PC should work very well for this building.

Ronny, your work displayed here is really inspiring, thanks for sharing!

Leighton, very cool meeting at your market! I was already worried because Scott wasn't posting for a while.

Jose, the Gauss-105 seems to be the winner of this battle. The Micro is a bit "nervous" wide open - judging by the rendering of the background-owl. Thanks for sharing!

Chin, the "bees-shot" is another fine example of your typical style. I love it.

Jeff, thanks for kind words. Hats off to you for keeping track of all the fine posts here!

I love the cat shot too... great fun Samy. Love your 135mm shot as well.

I definitely was transfixed briefly with the 35 f/1.4N but the price as Jose said, was prohibitive and with the AI-s lens in my kit I hardly needed another fast lens at that length if I was going to have to spend a great deal of money. Where I have duplicated lenses at other focal lengths I've always been able to do so without breaking the bank.

Speaking of which... I've contributed to a thread in the Nikon forum on the price of the 50 f/1.2 AI-s and incidentally had one sitting on the table where my monitor stands. Your reference to the 35 N prompted me to pull out my AI-s lens. Then I pulled out the 28 f/2 AI-s. Since I'd already cleared the tansu I've used for photos of lenses, I thought this might be the time to give a bit of love to the AI and AI-s lenses in my kit. I've been so obsessed with pre-AI lenses that they've gotten very little attention. Here are two photos taken with the 55 f/1.2 S.C. AI'd of first, the six fast lenses, then seven slower lenses. Only the 135 f/2.8 is an AI lens. I still love them all...



These were the lenses that led me into my manual focus adventure. There are a few lenses missing, but so be it. I didn't include either the 180 f/2.8 AI-s or 105 f/2.5 AI-s which arrived quite early in my kit building. Another time perhaps.

A few images from a small funfair today, I'm not into street-photography, but talked with some strangers and shot some portraits (sort of):


tried to get a sunburst in the background, it didn't worked (35/1.4 Ai at f/4)






all 3 shots above with the PC 85/2.8D wide open

one with the V1+FT1+ Ais 180/2.8ED:

focusing long MF-lenses is no fun with the V1

Thank you, Ray! I've tried to get a more homogeneous look for this set and settled on the "Push +1.5"-preset in SEP (slightly modified for each shot). Somehow I've managed again to over-sharpen the images in the down-scaling for web-process :-(

Have just managed to keep up on the reading, fantastic conversation as always, and high marks for the photographic contributions. What fun! Just thought I'd say hi, and leave a post so I can get back to here easily, and hopefully not be too long before another post for me.

Happy Fathers' Day to all the dads in the group!

Ray

I know this is San Diego Jeff, the balloon gives it away, where did you find a barn this close to the coast?

Great shot.

Some Packards with the 5.8 cm, D3, at 1.4 all. Do not return your cookies, heavy processing. One thing about this lens is that there is much less of that haze/veiling at full aperture you get with most 1.2 or 1.4 nikkors.

Just an alert on a 16/3.5 AI in E condition -

http://www.adorama.com/US%20%20%20%20570069.html

No picture or details yet to see if it's an AI or an AI'd or if it comes with the cap, etc.

Wow, lots of great posts today. This thread moves fast!

Saph, nice exterior shots of The Cloisters. Did you happen to get any of the inside? The castle-like interior is really interesting and would present many nice photo opportunities I would imagine.

Now then, I've only been back in to photography for a few months and am still figuring out how I like to do post-processing, so please be kind. Below are two photos taken with the 180 f2/8 AiS, and one with the 500 f4 p. Hope you enjoy them.

Really like that shot with the 500... That puts it at 750mm on Dx! That's almost as strong as my telescope. Very cool.

Lt: They're all in the right position, nice!

Georg: I'm curious about that too, for beer?

Curtis: Come on now, you could get an AIS version of the 135mm and free up that AI ...
