Continuing to test my MF lenses on the D700. Here we find the 200 f4 AI using its minimum aperture of f32 to capture a mug shot of this criminal (4T attached):

You guys are cracking me up. Fantastic seeing those photos Scott but it really makes me envious. I wish I'd been there to join in the conversation and learn the local dialect. I remember the first time I visited the south from my then home in Minnesota. My then wife and i stopped at a restaurant in northern Louisiana on our way to New Orleans. Listening to locals across the room talking with one another we couldn't understand anything they were saying. When the waitress arrived and we spoke, she must have switched the channel because we were were able,

Scott - love that set with Leighton.

Good to see the stall as a whole - and of course, Leighton "working"....oh yeah, I can see the sweat......it's positively pouring off him with all that exertion - moving a brussel sprout around a basket will take it out of you.

Hi Ben, és que hi ha molts diferents idiomes en el món, encara que sigui el mateix pais, especialment en els paďsos d'parli anglesa.

I like this shot a lot! What does the 5.8cm look like? I really like how this renders and I wish my 50 had a tad more reach...

Beautiful shot, Leighton ... I can see why the lens is a favourite.

Leighton and I had a great visit yesterday. Besides keeping him from getting any "work" done, we did have the ladies rolling their eyes with all the gear talk.

Here a few quick snaps of the market. All taken with the 28 2.8 AIS.

Chin, we did return home with some of their fine produce. Cannot wait to convert it into dinner tonight.



Great shots, Scott ... this is like a behind the scenes look at Leighton !!

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):

Wonderful as always, Georg ... especially like the first one.

What makes you favour the V1 in certain situations?

Trust me David, I got a real English lesson on how to pronounce the local names. I guess they could tell I was not a local!


Yes, I think it is Staunton, as in "haunting" as opposed to Staunton, as in "panting" but I could be wrong. Anyway, it is on the way from Richmond to The Homestead, and makes a good lunch alternative. Nice resteraunts and shops around an old train station, as I recall...

Kevin
There are two 5.8 cm in this photo. One in the camera and the other on the middle. Both with chrome Nikon filters. Looks a lot like the 50 1.4. Caution!. Cannot be ai coverted other than cutting the aperture ring and the diaphragms tend to be weak. $140 to $600 for good samples on the bay. Some sellers price it at 50 1.4 levels.Most typically they go for $250.

Help for the helpless...

Virginia Placenames Pronunciation

They suggest it should be pronounced as "Stanton" which rhymes with "plan fun." And here it is pronounced...

Well, I lied as usual, was not planning to do anything but ended up on a hike to the local Buddhist Ranch, up on the north hills, the place was so peaceful I was afraid to move, the people I spoke to so calmly friendly I was ashamed of my venti mocha latte nervous aura. I promise you one week of rest.

The last adventure with the 5.8cm. on the D3, no need for a D800 for this. Most at 1.4

This one was slanted looking up and I could not get the whole stained glass window in focus at 1.4 so it is at f/4

Those are very nice. One question. I know you said that you could not focus wide open, so you closed down to f4. Why not focus at f4 then open up to whatever? Shouldn't affect focus other than altering DOF. Is this why? No guarantee on the DOF being where you want it? I have done that with my 135Q with good results.

Kevin, what I meant is that in that one photo I was looking up at the stained glass, it was not all perpendicular to the lens, but at a steep angle, I could focus on any part of it fine at 1.4 but the rest would be outside the plane of focus, to bring the whole image into focus the only option was to increase the depth of field by closing down the aperture.This is where a tilt lens comes in handy by allowing tilting the lens to match the plane of focus to the plane of the image.

For some reason the 5.8 cm is easier to focus on the camera dot than the 55 1.2, and much easier than the 50 1.2.

Gotcha! I figured that's what a tilt shift lens did, but have never played with one.

Rafael, beautiful images with the 5.8cm. Have to check out the difference in focusing with the 55.

Here's a mourning dove keeping an eye on me. 400 5.6 ED AIS + TC16A.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

Samy - I really like your water Lilly (I think?) Shot. Perfect candidate for a B&W conversion.

Chuong - Nice last shots with the D700, you're going to love the raw files of the D600.

Howard - Very cool snail abstract!

Ben - I'm relieved that SOMEONE saw the sweat running off of me.

Curtis - Thanks for the links, they're very useful. Scott took my teasing rather well.

Photoshoot was a dud today. One couple showed up and the 80-200 was way to long for the space I had to shoot in, used the 50. On Dx, thats a 75mm, so it did OK. Very disappointing.


Sorry it was a bust, keep trying.
