I have designs on a second camera body, since often 36 exposures of film is too much at one time leaving me stuck at a particular ISO longer than I want. To fix this I am thinking about a second Nikon body.

Here's the problem, the store where I bought the 24 f/2 and 85 f/2 lens has a Nikon S3 Y2K rangefinder w/50mm f/1.4 lens. Wow! Is that one sweet looking camera.

Are manual focus Nikon rangefinder lenses allowed here? Not that I am going to buy it....but the temptation is high............

A Nikon FE2 is far less costly.


Of course they will be but the Nikon RF cameras are frighteningly expensive and the lenses are not capable of being used on othr bodies. Rather buy something like a D70 ( yes, I know it's old tech) which is an awesome camera in its own right - way beyond an FE2. Cheap and if you don't like it it will cost you (almost) nothing for the experiment.

Ray - you're a great convert. What concerns me is that you could be a devil's disciple!

Phillippe - just lovely!

Chin - so sorry to hear about your friend's illness. Hopefully he can recover with modern medicine.

Most important is the lesson that we all tend to ignore - we have this life, now, to fulfil ourselves and those we love. Don't waste it but live each day as if it is our last. Tell our loved ones how important they are and leave this world with grace when our time comes.

Thinking about you.

Peter

Ray, it's great to see how much fun you have with the 105/2.5P! Love the natural rope and the set from the playground in paradise. The bench-shot is very cool.
Btw, if I was living in your "Paradise" I would try to shoot the first playground-image with a fast lens wide open - the 35/1.4 or the 85/1.4 should work well. A bit of backlight and maybe a B&W-conversion would turn this device into a nice abstract.

Samy, the last image of the dancers is very well timed and the shutter-speed spot-on.

Tony, I'm sorry to hear about the personal trouble. The "End of a tale"-image is wonderful, love the look of wide-angles up-close and wide open. The light works fantastic here.

Rafael, nice set from your friends visit. Btw, no, you didn't hit sensibilities (at least no "hit" on my side) by posting images of target-practicing.

Mark, your 35-70 seems to be a close relative of my 35/1.4 I love this kind of bokeh, an all too smooth background is just "nicht mein Ding".

Chin, I'm sorry to hear about your friend.

Philippe, your garden (?) is a joy to look at. Love the way to include the foreground.

Learning to live is learning to die, very true.

"To live is to learn to die..." is how Google translates it. Sounds about right to me. The way I put it is "life breaks our hearts..." And that is not a bad thing because the tenderness that comes from being open to loss, as Peter's words suggest, allows us to meet our loved ones with an open heart. Life is "bittersweet." Even as we taste the sweetness we know it will all come to an end. It is a foolish person who refuses to look squarely at that fact. Fantasy can be fun, but it is not the best way to meet life or to engage with loved ones. Of course, it is much easier to consider these matters as one comes closer to the end of life. Before that life itself can be so compelling, so dramatic, that the long arc of this journey is not considered. That isn't a bad thing. But loss comes in many forms and it invariably raises questions we will address sooner or later.

"To live is to learn to die..." Absolutely.

Kevin, thanks for the translation (I think I have to learn English before I die.....

If you want to sit in those chairs, you just have to offer an air ticket (Air France's Airbus A 380 are stunning airplanes) to your wife and to cross the Atlantique, you are welcome in France!

Well, got a couple toys recently. Just testing out on a butterfly by the driveway with the 300/4.5 H I just picked up. These are fair crops, handheld, and as you know it does not focus closely. Then a picture of that lens with the 28-50/3.5.

(PS had no idea the exp comp was at +1 at the time....)

I finally got a chance to get out and use my 45mm f2.8 PC-E lens this past weekend... maybe a millimetre or so too much vertical shift resulted in the dark corners at the top of the frame.

Eric, congrats to your "new" Nikkor-H 300/4.5! The very first shot looks great.

Cliff, welcome and congrats to your 45 PC-E! Regarding the mechanical vignetting: removing filters and/or lens-hood might give you an additional millimeter more movement. This is the only MF-Nikkor (of over 30) that I got new and I still try to learn how to use it properly ;-)

Eric - Good to see you again, congrats on the "new" lenses.

Cliff - Nice to see you as well, and that's a wonderful image, and one that lends itself perfectly for that lens. Well done!

Sweet Eric. I agree with Georg, that first image is the real deal. What a gorgeous lens. I finally put mine back i the cabinet but I'll definitely get it out with it this summer. It is sharp wide open with excellent color and contrast. But it has a very long MFD. You might want to experiment with an extension tube if you continue to do close work. You lose infinity focus but you can get much closer to your subject.

Lovely shot Cliff. You're loaded for bear with that extensive kit listed in your profile with enough MF Nikkors to make you a regular on this thread if you were so inclined. But I see you around FM and know your interests are wide ranging. But it is always nice to see your work. That lens continues to tickle my fancy, but unlike you and Georg who sell your work, I can't justify investing that much in a lens, no matter how intriguing. So I'll take my pleasure from work done with the lens by others.
