That would be sweeet.



Peter, maybe that is the next lens we send around the world...

That would certainly challenge most of us, Samy and Georg excepted.

Of course, that was a daunting exercise and I don't know if anyone is up for a repeat.

Good work as always, I need to use the 180 with the TC, like Jose.

This is the Retreat office at the Mission San Luis Rey, with the 15mm 3.5 ais, haven't heard back fro the supervisors at Nikon, but the lens works quite well. just a little tinge of haze if inspected under bright sunlight.

This is the main entrance corridor for the Mission San Luis Rey, need to tilt up as it is so high, a 15mm shift lens would come in handy, like Peter's 28mm PC.

It would look like this, perfectly level, entrance corredor at Rancho Guajome, three miles away. Better light too, for the D800.

A crop of this, if the field curvature matches the subject, the 15mm can be almost this sharp through the frame.

Here you go John,

Colchuck Lake and Aasgard pass. Two were with a Nikon 28mm 2.8 AIS. I won't mention the other

Nice Jorge! I've camped at Colchuk at the end farthest away in the first image. Have not made it to Aasgard Pass though.

Thanks for all comments.

Leighton, loved the bokeh playing;

Peter (SA), what a view you have, nice debut with the 28 PC!

Samy, gorgeous red leaf;

Rafael, what a truly spetacular steal you got with that near pristine 135/3.5! Congrats;

Ray, simply gorgeous scenarios you have posted lately.

This afternoon I experimented for the second time my modified (by a Canadian guy at ebay) TC16A. It could be my fault, but with the D7000 and the 180/2.8 I had a low % of keepers. Perhaps my combo needs an AF-tune adjust or simply I need to use a tripod!!
We need to manual focus then the TC
...Show more


Thanks Jose.

I'm glad to see you're well on your way to "mastering the D7000" . Lovely image.

Will someone with a D7000 and a D600 please take two images, of the same subject, at the same setting, from the same distance, with the same MF lens, from a tripod and post them. The idea is to compare a full frame D7000 image next to a cropped D600 image (taken at FX) so that the subject is identical in size.

Then would they kindly enlarge the sweet spot for comparison.

Thanks.

Chin, very poetically said and glad to hear that people use common sense. Nice light in that image too!

Peter (Knysna), don't trade the 28 PC, its a fun lens to use! As Curtis said, it maybe a fun lens to send around the world though

Leighton, you are on a roll with the 50 1.2. Whenever you feel the urge to sell like Reagan, just take a walk with that lens

Ronny, cool image of the graffiti.

Ray, very pleasing images again from Florida!!

Jeff, great to see you posting again and nice scenes including the boats and the pelican flock.

Jose, any combo of lenses or camera you deploy, the results are always superb, great tanager image!

Scott, love the tractor and especially the hay shots.

Rafael, like your 15 3.5 images, particularly the second corridor one. Very nicely composed scenery through the first arch on the left.

Jorge, the first image is the best with that light on top of the peaks. That one has to be with the Nikon lens

Ben, welcome back and superbly composed and exposed image!

Thanks folks for the comments on the leaf image and the kitties. The leaf (there were several on the bush during a walk) stood out with its premature bright fall colors, and especially how the color continued a good part down the stalk.

On my way home the other evening, just before sunset, I spied this tractor in a hay field. Leighton, it is for sale! I like how the driver sits off-center. Taken with the 105 2.8 ais wide open (as a test). I did not hit the focus as well as I should have.

Scott


Beautiful old Farmall Scott, and the light is special. Looks like the focus is fine with this one. Perhaps the second one is off slightly, but the composition is outstanding.

And no, It's not green so I'm not interested.
