Bert outstanding views and bokeh play. Love your photos!
Leighton nice flowers and more bokeh. The child on the pavement is fantastic! Stop with the 50mm 1.2 I keep thinking I need one too
Rafael nothing more beautiful than those camera photos and the dresses one those beautiful ladies as well as being wonderfully framed WOW

Thanks Ray, and yes, you DO need one. It would round out your kit.

Quite a gig you have their Rafael... having beautiful women posing for you like that. This is a wonderful series of images... and yes, the 55, especially the older versions with the metal focusing ring, is a great lens to use. I'll doubtless pull mine out today and do a bit of shooting inside my friend's home.

This friend asked if I'd be willing to take a few photos of her sister's jewelry collection, which I did perhaps six months ago. Those photos first ended up in a magazine and on Friday I got a copy of a newly published book in which one of those photos was used. Contemporary jewelry design doesn't hold much interest for me but I was honored to have one of my photos used. And the friends I'll visit today inhabit that world so I'll likely take a few more photos of art works on display in their home. Always fun to be given an opportunity to take a few photos...

Come on Samy

Get your 500mm f4P out and used. Jose and I would love to see what you can do with it. I love what you do with other lenses. So time to work those muscles .... or at least the tripod.

Here are a couple of our local young UK Robin using the 300mm f2.8 ISO800 1/2000 @f4

After using the AF 18-35 I am thinking my next goal might be an 18 or 20mm. I wasn't sure I would like wider than 24mm but I really do

Taken today using a 28mm f3.5 recently acquired

I can't wait to get my hands on the f2.8 version.

Took the sky shot with a Nikon Circ Pola Filter hence the vignetting

The flower shot with on-board flash of the D700 @ f8

The outdoor green tomatoes, natural light @ f8 @ 1/320 ISO200

Do you need a crop for the stand at the market Leighton??

These are great. The only reason to get the faster lens would be to get the 28/2.8 AIS. I have the 28/3.5 and I love it. I have a Series E 28/2.8 that has been shelved for the slower/older version.

Volunteer work Curtis, it takes only a couple of beautifully dressed women and I am there ready to take the photos. Plus I am old enough to have lived some of the historical times they honor.


Something I never hear people say when choosing manual focus lenses is that the bigger aperture lenses are easier to focus than the smaller aperture ones, no I am not saying that the 50mm 1.2 is easier to focus fully open than the 2.0, BUT I am saying that the 50mm 1.2 focused at full aperture, electronically or visually, is far more likely to be in good focus at 2.0 than the 2.0 would be.

say again?!

Exactly, just as the 35mm 1.4 is sharper at F2 than the 35mm F2 at F2

Want to see what 8:1 looks like? Here you go! (I know the focus is a bit off, I took these outdoors in available light and it was windy...merely a test). 150mm worth of extension tubes with a reversed 28/3.5 in front and my D7000 of course. I believe f/11 to get some DOF. At this magnification, you can see every little dust speck on the sensor and lens...

Both shots are from a Dianthus flower which is smaller than a US quarter.

Recently at the college I work at, we celebrated convocation. The school has a photographer, but I asked if they could use one more. They said yes! The campus guy wasn't really into the event, I saw him sitting half the time and he got VERY frustrated when the chancellor decided to leave the stage and the lit areas to walk among the staff. I was frustrated too, but I didn't curse like he did. The guy was a jerk and from my vantage point, I could see all the shots he took as he scrolled through... Campus didn't get what they paid for.

Anyhoo! I almost exclusively used my Nikkor-Q 135/2.8. I love the lens, just haven't really had an opportunity to really learn it. Nearly every shot is at ISO4000. Also, the light on stage was a mix of white and red light, so post work was tough (I didn't have my flash with me).

Chancellor of the college

Very dark when I took this one, the processing made me think of an old color newspaper print.

If you just want a scalloped 50mm 1.4 by all means get it, they are beautiful and a pleasure to use. The bokeh is not as good (smooth) as the 2.0 and at 1.4 the image loses some quality, not just DOF.

Thank you for the example shots and lens porn

Looks like the lens renders really nicely on the D800. For me it's not that I want a scalloped 50mm because of it's exterior. It's the optics that I find interesting, and from your sample shot it looks as if I could really like the results of the 50 f1.4 S.C lens.

Just missed out on a 50 f1.2 that sold for $200 because I forgot to click the save button on my bidsniper software

@ Kevin, great shots with the 135mm. I never managed to get a sharp picture out of my copy. I really am impressed by the first shot in the series. The chancellor in B/W
