Really like this one. Is this film or conversion (if conv. what was your process?)

The 28mm 2.8 AIS seems like a popular one around here. Is there much difference optically between the f/2 and f/2.8?

Shot with a Nikon D3. Purchased this off of *bay a few years ago, it has a scratched front element, got it for around $50. Used my 24-70 the other day, but hated having an $1800 piece of glass as a remote, so I tried the 24 out tonight. Shot a ISO 2500, 1/640th.

The 28 2.8 AIS is one of my favorites. It works great on my D7000 as a standard focal length, has a very close focusing ability, and is very sharp even wide open. I had a chance to compare it briefly with the f2 version but did not see any big differences. For me the close focusing was the deciding factor.

John, you D800 file rescues are amazing. Makes me wonder if the Df would have been a bigger hit with the D800 sensor (though I have not really researched the rescue potential of D4 files since that body was always out of the question for me.

Yes it is pretty amazing. According to DXO the D800 has about a 1 stop larger dynamic range at base ISO compared to the D4, while at high ISO the D4 has at least a 1 stop advantage.
I have a few more to process that I'll share later.

Here's a few macro's I took on saturday on an organized fungi walk. It was really interesting. I am just starting to get into mushroom picking, but I have some friends who are really into mushrooms... they make beautiful subjects for photos, and if you find the right ones, you can have some tasty snacks!!

The first two were absolutely TINY!! I would guess that the first little mushroom cap was no larger than 1/16th~3/32 of an inch in diameter. just TINY!! I took the shot with my 35mm f1.4 reverse mounted with about 30mm of extension tubes!


the second two mushrooms were a little bit bigger... they may have stood an 1-1 1/4 inch tall.... and maybe 1/8~3/16 of an inch in diameter... it was shot with the 35mm reverse mounted with about 10mm of extension tube...


The third and final one was the coolest little fungi. It's called an earth star, which is a type of puffball which grows up from the ground and once it comes above ground, it the 6 little petals (which aren't at all petals). These guys just look so cool!! they are easily overlooked, and when I brought this one to the curator of the walk, he screamed with excitement! haha. The people you find at mushroom gatherings are almost as interesting as the fungi themselves!! This one was with my micro 55mm f3.5 Ai

Philip, good to see you posting. Gee, stuck in Switzerland for two years.


I know, somehow we'll survive.

Philip, great to hear/read from you again! Hope you and your family will enjoy the years in Suisse. Nice shots from a town that was not built with motorized traffic in mind ;-) Nice seagull-feeding-image - probably a future adventure for your daughter…


Oh, my daughter is going to just *love* the swans that hang around on the Limmat and the Zürichsee. We'll be there to feed them regularly, I imagine.

Thanks! It's a digital image (D700), converted to b/w in Aperture. I'm too impatient for film.

The 28mm f/2.8 AI-s is a great lens: small (smaller than the f/2), great colour and contrast, and a wonderful close focus. On DX it was my favourite all-purpose lens, and it continues to be a favourite on FX, though optically there are a few issues that crop up with the bigger sensor. The corners can be pretty bad wide open, and don't sharpen up sensibly until f/11. The slower lens also flares more with bright lights. The f/2 does a better job with corners at all apertures, but focuses slightly less close. I bought an f/2.8 first, then picked up an f/2 out of curiosity, and ended up keeping the f/2.8 because I thought it had a slightly nicer out of focus rendition, and was smaller. You can't go wrong with either lens.

Leighton Even the plumbing looks cold, nice shot.

Phillip Looking forward to seeing more of Zürich, what an interesting place.

Jose That Nikon shot is certainly nostalgic! I'm surprised we don't see Orient Express tickets.

Samy Interesting flag shots with the curtain of fall leaves. The cat's eyes shot is super. Wonder what is in those goat jars?

Scott Nice Somesville scene.

Raboof That poor bird looks cold.

Georg I really like the processing in these excellent environmental portraits.

Wthiry Great shot!

4mpx Great telephoto shots. I'll bet the bird is loud.

John It is amazing what dynamic range can do. I have rescued some over exposed shots where I find there is actually recoverable detail in the raw file.

Robson Beautiful micros. It hasn't rained here in N California yet so no fall mushrooms are to be found. I'll be looking out for an Earth Star.

Buddy Thanks for the comparison shots. These are very informative.

Ray What a funny bird!

This is the latest in my experiments with wide open panos, using a D800 and 45mm f/2.8 PC-E.

Philip it's great to see you . Love the B&W's and looking forward to more
Jay I really like the line of the fence.
Nice shots Robson
Leighton It looks dark in there Very nice shadows!!!

Thanks, Leighton, Georg, Jay, and Ray for your comments on the bird shot.

Last week with the 25-50mm. I think my monitor at home is too bright. My work monitor makes this image under exposed. I am not sure what to make of my images lately due to the new monitor at home.
