Peter (Madison) I've been loving the photos you're posting from your trip... such brilliant light, saturated colors and spectacular scenery. I was reading a book by a Buddhist teacher this morning who made reference to a person who hiked in high elevations and spoke about the altered state that develops in those conditions. I wonder if you experienced anything like that during your hike? Since I seldom find myself very far from sea level I don't have experience here. The time I hiked in the Sandia mountains outside Albuquerque, getting above ten thousand feet simply produced nausea... Of course we drove to the summit so I didn't have much time to become acclimated and I'd arrived from San Francisco only the day before, so sea level to ten thousand feet in a day was a bit much...

And just a note... you've demonstrated over and over again what that modest 20 f/3.5 is capable of producing. First rate work Peter.

Steve, the 180 with the PK-13 is a delicious combination. That lens is definitely a desert island lens for me. Very sweet shot!

Fortunately, Steve, there isn't much else I'd consider buying so you won't be getting competition from me. I'm also a great believer in getting good value for money, so you wouldn't find me sticking high bids on lenses. The key is doing the research to establish price. Using a snipe service but consistently under bidding won't solve any problems. Knowing what these lenses are selling for is important. Yes, one can go to KEH and pay a premium to buy gear that comes with a warranty and a pretty realistic system for rating quality, but there are deals to be

Curtis I understand the politics of bidding and play the game like most. I honestly don't think for one minute you need to jack up the prices bidding on lenses to the point when others miss out.

For my part, I bid for some, and am in the fortunate position to come by some magnificent lenses by being part of the photographic trade. So when someone wants to trade in their older MF Nikon kit for Leica equipment, for that is what we sell, then I can pick up some real bargains and often in extremely good condition. I don't get sentimental about equipment, if someone wants it at a good price, I feel that there will always be another along sometime later. So I have had the pleasure of building a collection of lenses and replacing some over the years, that I let go when digital and AF came along, but I find I get more keepers with manual lenses. Perhaps its just me.

Once again Curtis ..... Great thread .... Thank you

Steve

Yeah Ronny. That lens had been violated on both ends. If someone here got it - I hope it functions as intended.

Nice setup Kevin

this became cheap. .. thought it looked very funny looking in lens foot .. most of them screws is not intact there .. is probably not so easy to open if needed ?
but still hope that there was someone here who took it ...
for it was probably a very good price still $ 275
Thought actually put me on the price that maximum bid before I went to bed

Your job becomes researching price to determine what is a fair maximum bid. You enter that and the rest is done by the website. So simple... How do you think I accumulated all those lenses? Successful sniping...


My logic is that it actually is good to miss out on the occasional item, otherwise I have to keep taking new photos of my Nikkor collection as often as you

I'm somewhat glad I didn't win the one yesterday as I really didn't want to start looking for a hard to find fisheye lens cap, plus, a seller that doesn't outright state the cap is missing and has you deduct it from photos isn't somebody I would trust on the rest of the item description.

Steve, been enjoying all your images. Really liked the 500 F4 P shots, that should inspire me into putting my copy to use some day soon.

The droplets of water on the leaf had the same set up - perhaps I should have photo-stacked them for more DOF

C+C welcome as always.

In my comparison of the 180mm 2.8 AI and AIS I forgot to mention one unusual difference. The AIS has a much longer focus throw than the AI. Usually it is the other way around so this one was a surprise. I can see that with street photography, such as Phillippe has demonstrated in the past, the AI version would have the edge. Here is the side by side comparison.

I find that it is encouraging to see that the future of our country is in good hands.

It's great to see that the future captains of industry and the leaders of nations get together every now and then.

some serious action must be planned .....

Even if it's only the quaffing of beer ...

Every meeting starts somewhere .....

Using the 18mm f4 is different when my preference is for longer glass.

But some subjects lend themselves to using it.

I have shown this place before, but used a pano of shots taken with a 55mm f1.2

This one shot on the 18mm includes the whole scene in one go plus lots of floor space.

Taken on the 3rd anniversary day but early in the day

18mm f4 ISO800 1/125th @ f16

altered state probably doesn't refer to AMS (acute mountain sickness), HAPE (high altitude pulmonary edema), or HACE (high altitude cerebral edema). All of these are nasty, the second and third can be fatal. The physical stress of high altitude exposure takes a special approach, and over years of doing this you learn how hour body responds and plan your days leading into a bigger trip appropriately. I usually only need 2 days to get comfortable up to 12,000 feet, and another day or two for 14,000. When doing long hikes like we do, you get pretty fully acclimated by the end of it that 14,000 really only feels like 8000 feet.

Now, hiking for 7-9 hours a day with a 45 pound pack, climbing between 3000 and 6000 elevation feet with that load on trails in a place where all sounds are natural, can get your mind into a state that's not necessarily trance, but you're becoming part of the place, your body just doing its thing, and your mind focused on few other things than what rock to place your next step on. The world suddenly gets very simple - walk, eat, drink, sleep, see the world, occasionally take a photo when you see something that looks worth shooting.

I do this for many reasons. If I wanted to take just great landscape photos, I'd probably do it very differently, day to two day hikes, pushing in over trailheads with lots of gear. But we enjoy the long trips, the complete break with the outside world for weeks. It becomes a completely different existence for a brief time, which when you return to civilization puts everything into a slightly different light. Things everyone takes for granted, like fresh food, refrigeration, running water, a proper bathroom, a power outlet to charge your camera battery - all this suddenly is amplified, and you appreciate the little things around you much more.

a few more with the 20mm - the lens has definitely earned its place in my hiking kit. it is so light and small for what it can do. I will just have to make sure I use the 72mm polarizer on it in the future (with adapter to get the corner vignetting under control)
