Hi Dan, very nice portrait of your dog!
It's normal that S- and P-mode don't work with MF-lenses on a DSLR. It's possible to add a CPU-chip to some lenses to get these exposure-modes together with aperture-control over the front-command-dial (sorry, my English is not very good).
Some experts here have chipped their lenses and might chime in.
I for my part never use P- or S-modes and even the A-mode just on very rare occasions and don't miss this kind of automation for everyday-use ;-)

I am allowed to say where I work on social media, so here it is:

I am one of a few people asked to photog events, most I cannot show but here is one I can, the D800 and the 25-50 are outstanding for large group photos

I've not been able to keep up with you all and I've also not tripped the shutter button (at least on my D800) in quite a while due to more pressing matters (like making a living).
But tonight was an extraordinary October evening in Seattle - 70 degrees, calm wind, and some nice clouds in the sky.
Wife wanted to grab some dinner and eat it on the beach - so who am I to argue!

16/3.5 AI or 135/3.5 AIS (a lens that continues to impress me).

The wife spotted this ... 3 years ago?
It's on our way to our annual pilgrimage to the ahem rice noodle rolls

Every time we pass by she'd remark, you should take a photo of this
But in our haste to partake in the yummy food, that errand's often forgotten
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chee_cheong_fun

Two dilapidated house side by side, one closed, the other blown wide open
Trees just grow right through, lianas hang from above
Rubbish, leaf litter, dust motes floating in the sunlight, felt a bit squeamish standing in the pile wearing flip-flops
They're right next to abandoned gas station but most use it as a parking lot so I couldn't get a clean shot
Maybe next time...

*Not used to all the speed of the new computer
Finally 64-bit OS!
It's a chore getting my settings back to the same
And frustratingly, can't access an old pata harddisk which has some of my files from my undergrad days
Blame it on my procrastinating self, should have transferred them out when I had the chance, oh, in the last 5 years or so
Have yet to locate my CS5 box, and I shudder to think of tracking down my plug-ins
I think my noise reduction and topaz keys are in my gmail... brrr

Continuing on with my backlog of Suzhou China images, here's two w/ the 85mm f/2 lens and the rest with the 24mm f/2 lens. This time using Acros film (my favorite).

Rafael, I really like the composition of the photograph named Bouganvillae 3.
Nice corvette as well

Tom, the 2nd and the last image in that series really show off how well these manual focus lenses go together with black and white film. The rendering of the lens and film really compliment each other perfectly.

Buddy, thanks for the tip on testing for field curvature. Perhaps that will be the next series of test I will assign myself


Just keep in mind that the test is less then scientific in nature due to the random set of parameters and so-so accuracy It does give you a rough idea of where the focal plane of the lens wanders off to though and that helps quite a bit in understanding how you can get the lens to work for you.

Samy - Thank you. Good to see you get the big gun out again.

Dan - You're off to a good start with the 180!

John - Good to see you again, great light in your set.

Ratty - I've enjoyed seeing your part of the world. A part of me would love to go to an exotic place such as this and shoot until I drop.

Chuong - I love the first one in your set, looks like she's the only one left in the world.

Rafael - Good use of the 8mm!

Not much in the way of an image, but it shows what I love about the 50mm f1.2; that 3D effect that certain shots get when shot with wide apertures.

Massive 3D pop in that image. More than most that I see. You must work some special magic after the fact on the computer!

Yes, I am seriously spoiled living in such a target rich environment. I worry what will happen to me when I live in more familiar territory!

Well, I do work EVERY image I display (part of the fun with me). But this one just got a little crop and contrast added, as well as the highlights being lowered some.
