Very nice composition Philippe. The architecture in Paris is so beautiful. A bit different subject from the Normandy images.

Ronny, your church-shots are excellent. You've really captured a sense of history with your camera.

Rafael, I prefer the "old" processing. Very nice work, the mirror-shots are wonderful. The dancers will be pleased for sure.

And finally, ran across a picture of your home (mi casa es su casa) from exactly the same spot, up a tree , with the 15mm 3.5 and the 16mm 2.8 D, sorry the second is AF but here for comparison of perspective to the 15mm only.

Which do you like better?

I prefer the 15mm. I am not much of a fisheye fan, but enjoy a wide angle.

Thread's moving too fast, I think we are doing 5 pages a day or more. Rafael, I like the less distorted 15mm view, but am I imagining it or is the 16mm image sharper.

Ronnie, a different look to your recent images, and equally enjoyable!

Ray, interesting comparison, I am hard pressed to find differences between the Sonnar and Gauss 105mm 2.5 P lenses, other than the slight difference you point out. I had trouble distinguishing between the 10.5cm 2.5 P 9 blade and 6 blade versions that I posted a couple days back. Ultimately anything that Nikon has made in that focal length since 1959 is superb.

Here's a couple cat pictures to keep the thread moving fast. Both taken with the 13.5cm f3.5 Q, wide open.













And a museum airplane image (from the Air and Space museum in Virginia). I believe with the 28mm 3.5 PC. A Folk Wulfe FW-190, if I remember my air war history correctly.

I like the 15 slightly better, a little warmer in the earth tones maybe. 16 is incredibly wide though. Really like your dancer shots also.

Love the SF panorama shot, the SF building shots , especially the ones of the shot only a few blocks away from each other maybe a few years apart but very cool to see.
Great building shots, church's, Paris (Guess ad was a nice touch I thought).
Cars and Planes what's not to like
Flowers, Fruit and a Snail, great bokeh on all.
Mules pulling a plow, no dogs and sheep so can't be Leighton
I thought the park bench was outstanding, just looks so relaxing and inviting, I keep going back to it.
So many great shots hard to mention them all.
and while typing this we have cats

Such a great site, I think the site is more addictive than the MF lens's, easier on the pocket book also.

Georg, I liked that garden faucet disappearing magically into smooth bokeh with the 50 1.2 the most.

Lieutenant, impressive composition and scene yet again!

Enjoying the San Francisco images, the pages have gone by so quickly can't remember if it was a Bert or Curtis post that triggered the rash of those pictures.

Steve, nice choice of jacket from the 70s

Hang around here long enough and you will get the urge to start trying out the lenses and then the pocket book will start groaning

No kidding, in the 12 months I have been with this thread, I started with one lens and now have 13 MF lenses; not including 3rd party MF lenses. It's a disease, the only thing that might cure me is my worsening back.

Looked up the model in the museum website, its the F8, at one time called the A7.

Definitely provided air superiority to Germany for some period. There was a later version, the Ta 152 that was introduced just before the war ended.

Interesting story on Wikipedia about the Ta 152 and its designer, Kurt Tank:

Performance

The Ta 152 H-1, with the Jumo 213 E engine, was among the fastest piston-engined fighters of the war, capable of speeds up to 755 km/h (472 mph) at 13,500 m (41,000 ft, using the GM-1 nitrous oxide boost) and 560 km/h (350 mph) at sea level (using the MW 50 methanol-water boost).[6] To help it attain this speed, it used the MW 50 system mainly for lower altitudes (up to about 10,000 m/32,800 ft) and the GM-1 system for higher altitudes, although both systems could be engaged at the same time. The Ta 152 was one of the first aircraft specifically designed to employ a nitrous oxide power boost system.[citation needed]

Kurt Tank was flying an unarmed Ta 152H in late 1944 to a meeting at the Focke-Wulf plant in Cottbus when he was advised by ground controllers of the presence of two P-51 Mustangs, which were on a course heading directly for Langenhagen airfield. The two Mustangs appeared directly behind Tank and would have otherwise caught him, given the planes difference in airspeed, but he escaped by applying full power and engaging the MW 50 boost. As Hermann reports, "[Tank] quickly pulled away from the Mustangs, which had been closing rapidly, until they were no more than two dots on the horizon."[7]

It's already to late for me I think I have 6 or 7 now and have my sights on a few more. The great shots are making me think about doubling up on FL now It can get out of hand very fast I am showing some sign of patience now waiting for better deals.

Interesting fact I found about the Focke Wulfe Ta 152:

The sole survivor

There is only one surviving example of the Ta 152: a 152 H-0 variant flown by III./Jagdgeschwader 301, a Luftwaffe Wilde Sau unit. The aircraft is currently housed at the National Air and Space Museum Paul E. Garber Preservation, Restoration, and Storage Facility in Suitland, Md., where it is awaiting restoration.[23] The exact history of the aircraft is unknown, but the NASM reports:

"Definitive information about the NASM Ta 152 has always been lacking but research conducted late in 1998 may have revealed the airplane's true identity as Werk-Nummer (serial number) 150020, not 150003 or '010 as widely reported. This places the airframe toward the end of the range of pre-production H-0 models, a variant marking the transition from the Ta 152 prototypes to full production Ta 152H-1 airplanes. It was probably built at Focke-Wulf's production facility at Cottbus, Germany, in December 1944, and delivered to Erprobungskommando Ta 152 at Rechlin, Germany, for service testing."[24]
