Today's activities were a lot about bones - mammoth bones specifically.

First a little touring of the dig site . . . 16/3.5 AI and 45/2.8P

A couple of misc. from the last couple of days . . . some easy spelunking in Wind Cave in Wind Cave National Park. This cave did not have any grand rooms, thus it was difficult to get any great shots.

Then an attempt to image the milky way, but the air had too much humidity, there were some high clouds, and we were too close to some humanity for a good shot.

All with the 16/3.5 AI





Down we go! Claustrophobics need not go any further . . .

  NIKON D800    16mm    f/3.5    1/60s    6400 ISO    -0.7 EV  







Some cool stuff on the ceilings . . .

Lame attempt at a night sky shot

John, is the 16mm f/3.5 a fisheye? (Please excuse my ignorance, still learning here...)

Is your exposure for the Milky Way shot a single exposure?

Agree with Diallo. Georg had a somewhat similar image a few months ago of a different ship. Wonderful perspective using a wide angle.

Jeff, indeed, you should submit that red, white and blue reflections somewhere, its a very striking image!

Alan, congrats on soon to be #2!!

Ronny, great work as usual. Can't say much any more, that level of work is just routine for you

Scott, nice trio of 105s and good comparison. Are they all taken at f/4? Not much difference, perhaps the middle 2.8 is a hair sharper at that distance?

Diallo, the buildings and sun reflection in the mirror is very nicely seen and captured. Great to have a NYC member here!

John, looks like an enjoyable and educational vacation. The mammoth archaelogy dig looks very interesting to visit, and cool Milky Way image. Jared, yes, that's John's 16 fisheye. I believe he has more than one

Jeff, thanks for your comprehensive comments. I try to keep up but if I fall back too much, I just go a few pages back. You have the patience and can put together the effort to go far enough back.

I am guessing that's a single exposure on the 16mm, although John will need to confirm. At that wide of an angle, I believe you can get away with a 30 sec image without stars forming trails.

Thanks Samy. They are all taken at their widest aperture.

Scott, in that case the 2.5 AIS holds up pretty well against the macros.

Thanks Scott, Georg, Alan, Jeff, and Ronny!

Another one from roaming about the city. As Mark explained to me, they were getting ready for Zürifäscht, or a once every couple of years festival in the city's name, and I guess this was a part of that. 28mm f/2.8 AI-s, stopped down to f/8.

A quick trip through Lancaster town and the area in Pennsylvania.

Ivy-sided building, 35 1.4N, f/8:






Memorial in the central Penn Square in Lancaster town, 28 3.5PC at f/8, shifted to get the entire memorial. A better angle for the 28 PC would have been more to the right except for the cars speeding through the square.





The original memorial was erected 1874, dedicated to Civil War veterans, and the plaques for WWII, Vietnam War and Korean War added much more recently.

A clock at the square, 35 1.4N, f/2:






One of the Amish stalls at Central Market, right next to Penn Square, 35 1.4N, f/2.8:






A little note about this market, per the visitor center next to it, the market's the oldest (I presume indoors?) in the US.

Looking for some advice here. I found an 85mm f/1.4 AIS lens for what I think is a decent price ($550). The body and glass are in great shape with no marks, but the focus ring is very stiff. Is this indicative of a budding problem? Can it get worse or is this just "the way it is" and should be of no concern to me?

Thanks!

If that is the one from KEH avoid it! I purchased it some time back and they described it way differently. After receiving it I felt I was nearly going to rip the mount off my camera. They happily took it back, and sold me a buttery smooth one for a whole lot more money.

The one they have has a serious tight spot as if something is bent/misaligned, and would require major overhaul with parts to fix to a usable condition.

The glass and body are in great shape though on it.

Matt
