The sun played peekaboo with me today - I went to a place I wanted to shoot in the late afternoon-sun for quite a while now. No chance, the sun was shining bright as long as I was in the car. Stepped out of the car and the sun hid behind some clouds. Time for a coffee back in the car, the sun came out. And so on.

Anyway, here are two cloudy shots:

Thanks for the kind comments on my past shots, much appreciated!


I like this one very much Georg. Stitching images with a PC lens, amazing!

Thank you Rafael, Leighton, Mark, Ray, Ronny, and Georg for the comments. Shooting in the harsh mid-day light presents its own set of challenges.

You guys are quite a pair Matt... a couple of goofs...

Really great to see photos of the two you and from your walk... every day a blessing with the added dividend of some very sweet photos. Fine work, but then we've come to expect nothing less from you.

Can someone give me their overall impression of the 50 300 F4.5 zoom?


The ED is the best choice for event photograpy on a tripod or monopod, or to travel by car and take well framed pictures at scenic stops; it is sharp and contrasty at all apertures and works well on the D800, It works well with converters on a monopod and a sunny day closed to f/8, I have never used the non ED ones. With scope converters you only use the center portion of the image and a 100-300 5.6 or the non ED 50-300 mm may be good enough for a lot less money. the ED is excellent on the short end and outstanding at the 300mm setting, it also maitains focus as you zoom. The focus and zoom rings are very smooth, the whole front rotates as you focus, but zooming is internal.

Personally I love using it for the right occassions and have no problem focusing this lens on the D800 at full aperture, even on slow moving targets. I will be using it this 4th of July at the Fair to photograph a dance group and for fireworks on San Diego Bay.

How does one get their pictures to show up like this? Do you have to tag your images in a certain way or do you have to be part of a group?


It is nothing I did on purpose, it must be the name of the photo or the Flickr Nikkor group official tag for the lens.

Thanks for the kind comments on my first batch of images from SD.

Today we took a drive and ended up doing a ~4 mile loop hike to the top of "Lovers Leap" and back.

Sorry for the images of me . . .

Nice work on the past few pages everyone. Matt and John, good to see the cameras turned on their masters for a change.

A couple from Albanifest, the 3 day celebration of one of the city's patron saints (St Alban) who was martyred in 283AD. For all the gruesome details of his martyrdom it's basically a 3 day fun fair / drinking and eating session but usually pretty well behaved and on Monday morning you'd never know it was there in good Swiss fashion.

On Saturday in rained heavily most of the day but on Sunday it was much better, we took my son for the first time in a ferris wheel and he took it pretty well.

Both taken with the 24mm f2.8 which I am slowly coming to grips with.

I just got off the phone with a woman that has a lot of old Nikon and Leica equipment from her husbands estate (I am assuming that he passed on). She didn't know if any of it had any worth and wanted to donate it. During our conversation she made mention that she wanted to sell it if possible and donate anything unsaleable. She sounded older so I offered to help her sell if possible. Sounds like her husband was quite a collector, I can't wait to see what all is there. Will keep you posted and hope to have a listing of everything soon. Most of what she was able to read off to me are all things we drool over here...Nikkor lenses and Leica cameras.

Any chance of a 28mm f/2.8 AI-s in there somewhere?

Funny thing. I have been thinking of that 28mm f2.8 AIs lens all day today, as well as thinking of the 24 f2.4 AIs used in the photos Mark posted earlier.

I asked a question about the 18mm f3.5 Nikkor earlier, but based on the comments Im sure I wont like it much.

I have to admit, Im very picky when it comes to sharpness, contrast and vignetting in the lenses I use and/or buy. That and mechanical quality.

I have been thinking lately of buying a small lens with an angle of view wider then the 50mm f2 AI I already own.

Both the 24mm angle of view and the 28mm angle of view would be wide enough for my intended use.

I have no experience with either of these lenses and unfortunately none of the two are available for a test drive anywhere near me. Between the two, which has the lower distortion and vignetting. Which has the better overall sharpness and contrast?

I know both lenses are often referred to as awesome. In my case they have to measure up to the 14-24 zoom in terms of image quality. I want to take the lens when I leave the 14-24 at home because of weight and size.

Any advise or shared experience with either of the lenses is greatly appreciated
