Love this one John. A perfect use of the lens, and very well framed.


+1 great shot!

Steven, nice capture of the Copperhead. Haven't seen many of these up here, I think we're either too far north, or to high in elevation. We do however have the Timber Rattlers.


Hi Leighton, thanks for the comments all. With the tube minimum focus was @ 1 meter, so pretty close but not really dangerous.
These snakes are very common here in the NC mountains and I've only seen 1 that was aggressive. He got his head chopped off with a hoe. This one was smaller than it looks in the photo and relatively docile.
I grew up in Arlington and used to visit a friends old, family farm in Fredericksburg, along the river, and there were Copperheads everywhere and Moccasins in the ponds and creeks. Not sure why they wouldn't be common @ Staunton. I'm @ 2600' and their range covers the entire east coast.
I would never get anywhere near this close to a Timber Rattler. We've got those as well and that's a scary, dangerous snake.

cheers and watch your step!

The 105/1.8 is a lens that handles fantastic. The 135/2 feels good, but much, much bigger than the well-balanced fast 105.


I find myself using the 105 f/1.8 AI-s when doing portrait work. When shooting Canon I always turned to the 85 f/1.2L but coming to Nikon the 105 focal length quickly replaced 85 for this purpose. This particular lens is longer and lighter than the 85 f/1.4 AI-s and balances beautifully on the D700. Of course, the 85 is a pretty sweet lens, especially wide open... as in this shot taken yesterday in West Marin.

Yes, I am enjoying my new 85 1.4. It is all that I expected from it.

The 35 1.4 is a different situation. Just not getting much out of it. For sure the Sigma spoiled me, but I just feel I should be getting more from a lens so highly rated.

No matter. I committed to using just thes two for all of September, and that is what I will do...

David I think you will really enjoy the 35mm. Did they swap it out for you?
Here's a landscape shot wide open. Not the best subject and I should have been a little closer but it is sharp wide open.

Amazing location, but the words will have to wait until I've got more time to type them out
For now, just the image:

Curtis:

I am in a holding pattern while they look for a suitable replacement. Could get a Zeiss 35/2 for a bit more $$, but I am holding out for the Nikon.

I am trying this in AF mode, f4-5.6, minimum shutter 1/125. Will move up and down with aperture, but my minimum shutter stays at 1/125, and auto iso at 2400. Maybe I need to boost the shutter to 1/160, that way I can cover the 35 and the 85.

Both those Italy impressions are pretty much just awesome, as are the hiking/trail shots with the 20mm
