Some excellent photos in the last few pages. I don't know how you keep taking those superb images of flowers Ronny, so prolific!
Uprooting to Zurich sounds like an amazing adventure Philip!

WOW! 10 pages since my last post. You guys are really doing some fine work. Beautiful images since my last visit. Way to many to comment on but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the fireworks shot from Rafael. Really really nice.

Thanks Curtis. I actually got the idea of the large aperture 35 from Ray in Florida, and about the PK-11A extension tube from Georg's recent posting of I think a 24 f2 + PK-11A shot I did use to list lenses, but it got unwieldy when I started down the scalloped lenses path and started duplicating focal lengths

I like them both Samy... and I definitely am enjoying your tube work. You don't list all your MF lenses in your profile so I'm left to appreciate what is in your kit an image at a time as you list the lens used. The 35 f/1.4 N is a very sweet lens that I'd be tempted to buy except for the price and the fact that with the AI-s already in my kit I have that focal length covered. But I guess price is the key issue because I've certainly been willing to duplicate focal lengths before, sometimes multiple

Leighton, your eye for lighting has been superb as of late. I really like how these flowers are rendered. The colors are rich and striking.

Thank you Scott. Fortunately, or unfortunately, since I have to be at the market so early, there's an abundance of nice light. I'm a FIRM believer that light is the single most important factor in a good photograph. Take this shot for instance, not really that good of a composition, but the light makes up for it.

"Tres Hombres" part II

I tried each lens at minimum focus distance, set at f8. To make things fair the 105 2.5 used extension tubes to get as close as the macros. I used live view and a tripod for critical focus on all exposures. Point of focus was the letter "P" in Japan.

That f4 looks the most balanced across the board, the 2.8 a little richer color...at least to my novice eyes.

The 105/2.5 AIS held it's own, but I'd have to go with the 2.8 judging by these. Actually, the 2.5 did extremely well. Was this with the pk-11?

I think to get 1:1 he would have to use the PN11... It held its own for sure, just not as precise as the other two.

I used a Kenko 12mm and 20mm stacked (32mm total). Don't own a Nikon tube.
