Good to see you Jose.
Cool group of musicians with the fisheye Jay.
Quintessential Europe streets Peter and interesting constellation gear.
Steve you are going to love the 25-50mm at 5.6 and 8.0. at 4.0 not so much. Blue bird indeed and sharp guard.
Beautiful portraits Philippe.
Very complete lens set Thomas, with chips too!
Great colors and Bokeh with the 85mm 1.4 Ray. See my 85mm 1.8 below.
Buddy, what a spyder! not your backyard I hope.
Choung, what is the pretty red flower?
Not very creative today, did chores around the house, but also worked on two lenses, noticed that my 50-300mm ED ais had a loose rear element,
removed the mount and come to find out it the rear elements are in a tube that screws into the inside of the lens,
the tube was loose but all it needed was a good tightening.
The other lens was the 85mm 1.8 k, some of you may remember I had purchased one of these with the ai kit
but it was optically defective, later I bought another without the ai kit, but could not remove the mount screws,
so I transferred the good lens unit into the bad lens housing with the ai kit. Today I finally was able to move
the ai ring and the good elements into the original housing. The original housing was cosmetically better
and much smoother focusing, which is the reason to use it, plus now the infinity focus is in calibration.
Here are the lenses: The non-ai is the best of them, swear, the K elements on the camera are now in the body on the left,
the bad elements are assembled as a full lens, they look fine but the pictures are ugly, will keep it for parts.

I am not much of a bokeh person, this is the season of the bougamvilleas, a little rain makes them happy. These are full size in Flickr.

The car looks small and far, but check a 100% crop, Can't wait for the D900 with 50Mp, 36Mp is not enough for my lenses.
