The 15mm saga continues, even though the lens is working well I decided to have Nikon fix it 100%, they charged $450, it is enough to replace one element instead of cleaning it the best they could. Here is the issue for reference, I sent these pics to Nikon, they always answer correspondence on their support site, Nikon requested photos to evaluate. Taken with 55mm 3.5.

The good lens a 15mm 5.6

The not so good lens, the 15mm 3.5, this is not seen unless a really bright light is used. This is not and was not caused by fungus, I am an optics trained engineer, this is a factory defect in the coating.

I canīt stand haze.

The difference is obvious enough.

I had a real horror trip trying to find a fast tele lens for my camera.
First I bought a Nikon AF 180 f2,8 but on delivery found out it suffered from fungus.
Nikon didnīt want to clean it, but the seller said he could. I sent it back to the seller. Got the lens back with messed up threads, scratches on the glass and the fungus not removed.

Then I bought a Tokina 80-200 but found out it suffered from haze.
Sent it back to have it replaced. The replacement suffered from a centering defect and haze.

I still own a Sigma 28mm with haze on a single element.

The 15mm lens is awesome enough. I hope you find a lot of joy using it now that itīs fixed

Samy - very nice series but I've lost faith in the Smithsonian and may have to return my T shirt!

The Jaguar looks suspiciously like a leopard and the meal is definitely an impala which is an African antelope...

This is much better. Now, if you edit your profile you can add the link to your Flickr page in the box provided so all one has to do is click on it to see it.

Jared, baie welkom! It's great to have another S African on this thread. Good places to look for Ai and Ais glass in SA are gumtree, bidorbuy or the classifieds at outdoor photography.

Very nice images of the daisies. Keep them coming.

Rafael - the 15 3.5 is in good hands. I'm quite tempted to buy one in SA in mint condition for $820. What's your view?

Georg - the squashbox images are excellent as usual. Well done.

Scott - I think the day lily shot is great. Love the bokeh.

Samy - the flowers are stunning. Great indication of the quality of at least 40 yr old glass

Curtis - love the candids and also the flowers

Kevin - great set of images from your holiday

Leighton, I love the B&W picture of the musician.

Jared, great flower shots.

Ronny, the lighting in the sheep shot is beautifull

Ray, your Charleston series is great. We went there a few years ago and this brings back good memories.

Peter, it depends, you used to use a D200, if you moved onto FX that is important, else a 16mm 3.5 on DX (or FX) is twice the lens for half the price. Also you will have to practice focusing to get really sharp photos, these lenses are unforgiving if focused on the wrong part of the frame, or they can give you a fully sharp frame if well used. You can really only use them at f8 through f16, you need to shade the front element with your hand. The cap is beautiful but impractical. Do you enjoy owning it as much as using it? ready for a garage queen that goes out on sunny days only?

You could sell it in ebay for $1100 if like new. or to me for $500.
