All shot with MF glass, two out of three were Nikkors.

One of me sporting the 16/3.5 on the D800. Lookin' old . . . .

Ben and Steve, nice work with the 180mm these last couple of pages!

Here's a 50mm f/1.2 AI-s photo (wide open) of Margot learning to feed herself. It can be a messy endeavour.

Just what the 50/1.2 is meant for. Excellent!

OMG Scott that is great!!!!! Did you use your new 18mm?


+1 Scott - fantastic. I love the composition - that tree, and especially that line of light on the ground anchoring the shot.

The 80 won't arrive for week or so. But the 50 lux is here - but it's stuck in customs. The guy finally said yes, and then I didn't hear from him. He didn't tell me he'd sent it, no tracking nothing. Today I got an email from customs saying it's here but they wont release it till I fill in a bunch of forms and pay duty etc etc - this has never happened before.

Pricey enough to get stuck at the tax barrier?
Is there an equivalent luxury for freelines then?

Super Milky Way, Scott!!! What lens were you using?

Without those motorized mounts that track the earth's rotation, 30 seconds is about the limit before the stars seeing trails.

Long exposures. Tried my hand at 30 second night sky images. It does not take much man made light to influence that long of an exposure. The Milky Way on the other hand was fantastic. C&C welcomed.

Very nice portrait + scenery John! Tell you what, you are going to feel a lot less old than the likes of me who are sitting on the couch admiring your and Peter's mountaineering images

You're best shot of Margot so far! If you need more butternut squash, let me know, we just harvested a few hundred of them.

Scott, you did a great job. The composition and foreground element makes the image to my mind. Well seen my friend!

And congrats on your entry in this weeks assignment, what a great shot.

Scott, love your Milkyway-shot! The tracking-devices are probably the way to go for super-detailed star-shots, but you'll lose a sharp foreground to put the stars into perspective (so to speak). That's why I love your image. Do you mind sharing the technical details?

Still using the stock D700 screen. I took 5 shots, but they were more or less all in focus, just various states of facial expression that I picked between. It helped that Margot was stuck in a high chair.


At close range focusing a 50/1.2 (or 55/1.2) properly is easy compared to shots from a greater distance. At 4-8 meters or yards I would barely get a sharp shot without the replacement-screen (thanks again, Dylan!) or Live-View.
But I don't wanna talk your lovely portrait down to dealing with a technical task, Philip ;-)

Congrats! I wonder how you will rate this lens compared to the 180/2.8ED that worked so very well for you (and many others here at this thread).

Regarding the customs: I'm still surprised that "Nikki" made it's way around the globe without tax- or customs-issues.

Phillippe - congratulations on the 180 3.4. I'll be very curious to see how it goes on the D700 (it might be next).

Georg - nikki didn't have a sales invoice attached - and it was not quite in the Leica's price range. The guy said I probably wont have to pay duty because it's a 30 year old lens - but there will be GST and some "handling" charges.

I think this is the highest (not tallest) structure on US soil - hut on Mount Whitney summit at 14,500 feet. 20mm f/3.5, properly polarized to reflect the fact that this is almost 3 miles closer to outer space than nearby Death Valley.

That's an awesome blue sky. The kind we simply never get here in China. Not in the eastern industrial areas anyway.

Well Done! Light pollution really shows up in these - even far off porch bulbs can throw light so much further than expected.
