Thanks Peter (Knysna), that 13.5cm lens is from ~1960 per the photosynthesis page. And thanks for the correction on the leopard vs. jaguar at the Smithsonian museum. Per Wikepedia the leopard has an "..unequaled ability to climb trees even when carrying a heavy carcass". Jaguar spots are also different. What was your experience with the Smithsonian that was negative, may I ask?

Thanks Jose, still a mystery why the TC16A is not behaving. Interestingly it seems to work more indoors.

Bert, beauties again with the 200 + extension tubes!

Jared, bright colorful flowers against a black background always shine, very nice.

Kevin, very nice portrait of the youngster and good conversion.

Ronny, the sheep seem captivated by the photographer, very well taken.

Leighton, cool cowboy boot at the market.

Scott, did I miss the Williamsburg images? Really liked what Jose reposted.

Franche - Molto buono! Love the ladybird.

Buddy - welcome - nice dog.

Samy - beautiful turtle.

Ray - You really have captured Charleston so well

Rafael - that board is a literal masterpiece

Ronny - very sharp sheep and stag beetle jaws. Excellent.

Leighton - market shots are top drawer!

Kevin - neat portrait

Doug - welcome - dramatic start

My experience, which sadly was limited due to the extreme heat in moving from building to building, was outstanding! I loved it and only if they had misnamed a leopard would I have lost the faith

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

Thanks Rafael - I'm not a collector which is why I've stayed away so far. When I'm in the US I'll look for a 16mm 3.5 since I still believe the D200 is an amazing camera for the number of photographs I take.

I value your advice.

Peter

Hi Samy. As part of our tour through Virginia, besides seeing Leighton, we did stop at Williamsburg. Great place with all kinds of photo opportunities. It was hot and humid though.

Nice pictures of the turtle and the day lilly.

Everyone is knocking it out of the park with beautiful flower images!!! Great diversity, use of lenses, tubes, compositions, and the like. Great work!

I will not be posting my humble flower attempts.

Great to see new faces on the thread. Welcome aboard.

That 180mm looks like itīs doing a magnificent job. I really like the contrast and color in your pictures too. They are well composed and really allow the lens to shine.

Thanks Buddy, the 180mm is one of the "desert island lens". I believe everyone should have it in their bag. Sometime last year, or perhaps later, I think (but I may be wrong) John (jhinkey) did a comparison between the AF version and the manual version. He ended up keeping the manual version. It's super sharp and contrasty wide open, where I like to use it most of the time.

Well then for full disclosure it wasn't the museum, it was I. I used to have a zoology background, and here now I have to dig up wikipedia to keep myself straight on species
