Leighton,

That's me selling to fund the new 600mm, Leighton. I put it on B&S here and no one seems to want a f2.8. Same pictures that I have on here.

Thanks everyone for your comments on my image. After reading the Dpreview and what Peter said, I think I am going be more careful posting my kids images.

nope, not me. I never look at the f/2.8 versions.

careful with the cheap f/3.5 that is offered for parts/repair - that is the one I returned.

The price seems a touch high for an f/2.8 but then what do I know? Are you telling us you're tempted Leighton?

No lenses in my immediate future... I'm tapped out after picking up a 13" MacBook Air this morning... a birthday present for myself.

Sorry I've missed so much great photography but life sometimes intervenes. I've taken a few photos and even processed a few of them, but that is about as far as its gone. But life is good on this side of the United States where our autumn has the feel of a gentle summer.

Shot this today at a luncheon on my behalf at a friend's house. George is about to head out to the east side of the Sierra Nevada mountains for a month of shooting. I gave him the battery Don Jean asked me to remove from his D800. That will give him six for the trip and given how few photos he takes he may get by with that many. This was shot with the 55 f/1.2 S.C. AI'd at f/2.8, then converted in Silver Efex Pro 2.



Now for a bit of browsing...

Nice to know I haven't been forgotten Leighton, even if I've been on sabbatical...

Lovely to see some new faces on the thread, though when the conversation turns to Tokina, Tamron and Vivitar I have to pause to make certain I'm on the RIGHT thread...

Come on guys... there are more than enough MF Nikkors hanging around to keep everyone happy. I didn't accumulate 37 of them by accident and I got some great deals along the way.

Leighton's suggestion of the 20 f/3.5 is a fine one, no doubt justified by Peter's outstanding work from his hike on the John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevada mountains. I'm content with the f/2.8 but the smaller less expensive lens seems a great performer.

Just remember, kit building is forever...

Dan, welcome, as far a telephotos go, the 180mm f2.8 ED AIS is by far the best under 300mm. I believe everyone should have this in their kit. These lenses work wonderfully on the D600.


Great suggestions but the reality Dan, is that every MF Nikkor that was either built as an AI lens or was converted to AI will work with your new camera, and if you've been following this thread you'll see that a great many of them are being used with success on that camera, as well as other DSLR Nikon cameras. You would do well to educate yourself, beginning with this short article by Thom Hogan.

http://www.dslrbodies.com/lenses/lens-articles/general-nikon-lens-info/making-sense-of-nikon-lens.html

Lens designations in the Nikon world can be quite bewildering, but Thom will help. Check him out, then do a bit of reflecting on how you shoot. There will be prime lenses and zoom lenses that focus manually for whatever your preference may be and most will be at affordable prices. Costs go us the wider and longer you want to go, but between 20mm and 400mm you can do quite well without breaking the budget, especially when compared with the cost of G lenses. Have fun. These lenses can be addicting and this forum can be a delight. Welcome.

Guys - thanks for the kind comments on my dog show photo. The exposure was pure luck, as many of them are! I am going to another agility trial next weekend. Think I will try the 180...

Whew... so it's been nearly two months since I have been able read or post here. Our little Malachi had a bit of a scare that involved a hospital stay but all is well now for him. Time sure flies when you're working on this too.

He's always happy to have Daddy take his picture with a manual focus Nikon lens:

Glad to hear Malachi is doing well. I can appreciate how illness with a youngster can cause angst for parents. Happy it worked out for all of you. I don't quite know what your involvement in the Falcon 9 but it looks intriguing for sure. So many ways to live a life, with or without a camera in hand. All the best to you Alan, to Nikki and your whole family.

Well, I had not gone out to take pictures with the refurbished 15mm 3.5 ais because I was nursing a cold. Today I felt healed, took the vette out, went to the usual haunts, San Luis Rey de Francia mission.

This will be a long posting, the lens performance after nikon replaced the hazy elements is astounding, better than the 15mm 5.6 and the 18mm 3.5, and close to the 16mm 3.5, I would say on par with the 16mm except for the curvature of field, but if the subject matches the curvature, no difference. It was usable before, it is incredible now.

The following photos are on Flickr at full res in case this piques your curiosity,

Leaving for the Mission:

Well, I certainly didn't design the rocket... I work with the flight inventory team at the Mcgregor test site and did handle a few of the parts that went up into space today.

I am having to let go of a few things to cover hospital bills, so I thought I would give the good folks of this thread a heads up before they hit the B&S boards. All of these prices are PP'd and shipped in the US with Priority Mail.
Fuji Superia Reala 120 - $105/3 pro packs (15 rolls). Expires 10/2014, I've stored it sealed in my freezer like any good analog purist. I had enough stock to shoot until roughly 2018... but the boys will look good on Portra too

Nikon 28mm f/2 AI - $300 and has been used by both jhinkey and then myself. My ability to manually focus wide angle lenses on SLR's has gotten such that I struggle to get in focus shots now, so I'm passing this one and keeping an AF wide.


Nikon 85 f/1.8G - $415 - Bought it new last May. Looks and works good as new. Don't recall it needing more than a +/-2 adjustment for AF accuracy.


Pentax 67 75/2.8 AL - $950. My second favorite lens for any system after the 50/1.2 AI-S. These are rare and not easy to come by.


I've also got a metering prism for Pentax 6x7 and 67 bodies but I don't expect there is much demand for one of those in these parts...

If anyone is interested, PM me.
