I'm really enjoying the 28 2.8, hopefully will find the same enjoyment from a couple of the new lens's when they arrive.

With all the great shots of Wheat and Barley is making me want to do brew a batch of beer and I haven't done that for a few years now.
Great macro shots all, I have always appreciated looking at them for the great detail and skill it takes. I tried years ago in film but I didn't seem to have the skill. Will

Thanks for the feedback folks! I sort of regretted posting my little story this morning, because it had nothing to do with Nikon manual focus lenses. It was a bit more philosophical than that, but I'm glad the reception has been positive. I appreciate the replies. Off to bed now!


No worries RM, that's one of the things that makes this thread special.

that slow thing has very little to do with film itself. the last time I shot film I carried two EOS 1n with booster and usually went through 20-30 rolls per day, all on aperture preferred auto with AF lenses set to AF half the time. With auto film reload with auto-rewind and automatic ISO recognition. Basically, only every 36 frames it was a few seconds of delay before I was back on the button.

It's really how you choose to use a tool. I spend far more time on each shot now than I did back in those days

The 55 f3.5 is a nice lens for fish tank shots. At least as long as the tanks and fish are either big or small enough. I used it for oscars and for shrimp photos a lot.

Used the 105 VR micro nikkor for everything else but it could have easily been replaced by the 105 f2.8 Ai-S without me noticing it.

I used a 4x5 Cambo for a while. Great camera and I always took 6 sheets of film with me. Those easily lasted 8-10 hours because there is a lot of setting up to do on a view camera.

New big toy from my favorite used seller. Adorama! A really nice surprise was sitting in place of the normal UV filter. If you look at the pic close you will see it has a drop in CPL with the little thumb wheel to adjust. An impossible addition to find for one of these lenses. It is over 90% humidity here right now so test shots are not going to be very good but I took one off the deck from about 300ft away of the neighbors wildflowers. It is a 100% crop. Looks like it is pretty sharp.

Philippe, I like your choice of focus on #1 and the framing on #2. A very interesting set.

I'm with Leighton on that Tom. I enjoyed reading your story and as a hopeless romantic I found it touching. I met with a friend this morning after reading the thread and she mentioned a friend visiting from LA who'd brought a box of photos that belonged to my friend. They spent time going through the old photos and as Peter noted, it was a wonderful, magical experience. This friend is creative person who has produced a number of films and we shared our lament that photos have become so ephemeral as to become meaningless. Snap a photo on your iPhone and send it to Facebook or to your other friends, most often of the iPhone user shooting him or herself in front of this or that or with this or that friend... everyone posing, looking cool. Multiply that by a few billion and you get the idea that such images will not likely pass the test of time.

I'm not suggesting that printing photos is a solution, first because it won't happen and secondly because there will still be billions of snap shots floating around in cyberspace. Yes, as Peter (SA) notes, it is a great way to share photos with family members and there obviously is nothing wrong with that. I resist Facebook but am often tempted when my friends Sarah and Jesse post a video of Ansel as he first crawls, then stands, then takes halting steps. So the world is simply changing. I'm afraid those of us with DSLR cameras, and even film cameras are a dying breed. I guess the only solution is to use and enjoy the tools we have and leave it to later generations to work their magic. There will likely be a small number of folks who still want to press a shutter button, in the same way there are folks who still enjoy rebuilding classic cars and taking them to shows once or twice a year. Personally, I'm not about to give up my camera or lenses in exchange for a smartphone...

Ron what a beautiful lens, Congrats!.
It dwarfs the size of my newest acquisition. I bought a 180mm 2.8 ED AIS from a very nice lady from Sarasota who had advertised it on Craigslist for $100.00. I scheduled an appointment and figured there had to be something wrong with this lens. To my surprise it was in excellent + condition. I offered to pay her more money for the lens because her price was too low but she refused. She said if I loved it and will use it then it was meant for me She also told me that she had personally purchased this lens from Frans Lanting famous photographer from California

I think Reagan showed up because he heard through the ether my comment about classic cars...

There will likely be a small number of folks who still want to press a shutter button, in the same way there are folks who still enjoy rebuilding classic cars and taking them to shows once or twice a year...

Nice to see you on the thread my friend. I guess you crawled out from under the Chevelle to catch a bit of daylight... What you found instead is Ray STEALING another lens. I don't know how he does it but I think we should all ask him to do our shopping...

AWESOME Ray! I've no doubt that you'll make that classic lens sing, even as you did with those first shots. Quite a kit you're creating...
