Sar, - excellent use of the 80-200 f4.5
Tony - the tower photo is superb
Chin - very eerie
Ronny - great macros
Rafael - 20 3.5 UD suits your eye. Very nice shots.
Ron - nice house and story

Is anyone else having trouble getting images to open? I get a lot of references but sometimes (not always) don't see the picture. This has just happened with Ray and Sar ( I saw them earlier)

Saw this yesterday and had to share it.

African women are taught to carry quite heavy loads on their heads from an early age and as a result develop very good posture. In country areas it is not uncommon to see them carrying heavy buckets of water without spilling a drop as well as bundles of firewood perfectly balanced.

I have however never seen anyone carrying a wheeled suitcase in this manner. Unique..

I don't think I have ever gotten so much response on any image before - than the dead grass with the 135. Thanks for all the comments. Here is another recent acquisition...the 105mm f4 ais micro...







Scott, really like the 200mm f4 micro work.
Eric, the lighting and bokeh on the hook - excellent!
George...like the two brunettes shooting pictures, bokeh is awesome! I had a client with a "project" he had been putting off for 20+ years...the restoration of a East-German Trabant - somewhere in my archive. Must look it up...sometime.

Reagan, that first close pin is a work of art.
Philippe, great 28 image of The Musée Grévin in Paris.
Chin, it almost looks like a model city - "unreal" is the word...good work. Like the dark forest too!
Jose, Rufous-bellied Thrush - love it!

Ronny, another pair of wonderful 135mm + extension tube images that are excellent + the 180 WOW!
Chuong, I like how the coat hooks? increasingly blur...good one.
Jeff, Like your first shot in Yosemite.
Steve, your gonna love the 28.
Ray, congrats on the new 20mm

Jay, love the environmental portrait of the cigar roller...I'm sure there is name for it...too lazy to look it up.
Raphael, Were you shooting a funeral at Zapopan Cathedral Mexico?
Peter, good swallow shot. I like watching them - they are a lot like acrobatic cats of the bird world.
Sar, your 300mm f2.8 is a resolving amazing details.
Tony, the photos of Alicia are so moody...love em!
John, superb 400/5.6 ED AI pano...the multiple distance ridges are killer.

Thanks James -

How do you like the 105/4 AIS micro? I've seen some image tests with it and even at infinity it seems to be excellent (better than the 105/2.5 AIS).

Well John, the only 105mm Bjørn thought was better was the old f4.5 UV (expensive). This f4.0 ais was much more affordable. I do still shoot the f2.5 ais, but for macro work - the new to me f4 is better than the f2.5 with tubes. Also, it seems to have better DOF. To be honest, I haven't tried the micro for long distance. I intend to use them for the purposes they were manufactured. f2.5 for 3' to infinity, and the f4 for in close. Focus throw on the f4 is 300 degrees - only 140 for the f2.5, but I consider this a focusing aid. I intend to keep both, but now that you mention infinity focus...I suppose I should test that.

The Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/4 AI-S is the sharpest 105mm I've used at all distances :


D800, Micro-Nikkor 105/4 AI-S, 1 sec., @f/4.

I couldn't find the link (it may have been someone on this thread - Georg?) where the 105/4 AIS was compared to the 105/2.5 at large distances. As I recall in the center they were about equal, but the f/4 had better corners. On my D800 the boarders/corners is where the 105/2.5 starts to really feel the strain of 36MP, thus for landscapes on the D800 it may have some issues.

In fact for the ~100mm focal length I've gone to the 90/3.5 CV or the 100/2 Zeiss, both of which are very good/excellent wide open on the D800 at infinity distances. I know I know that's heretical talk . . . .

Hey guys, I'm Soori and newly joined this forum. I'm glad that I found this thread for Nikon MF lenses. I spent many hours on this thread and amazed by some of the photographs. Recently I bought a brand new Nikon D800 camera. Previously I had Nikon D90. Now with D800, I would like to go with complete MF primes from Nikon. I bought Nikon Nikkor 20mm F/2.8 AI-s, Nikon Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 AI-s, Nikon Nikkor 85mm f/2 AI, Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 AI-s, Nikon Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 AI-s from eBay in around 10 days time which are all in excellent condition. Now I'm so much excited to try my gear and have loads of fun. This weekend I'm planning to visit San Francisco, CA to get some beautiful snaps. You can guide me like which are the best locations over there as I'm fairly new to that city. Thanks in advance

You need an 85mm 1.4 AIS in your lens diet, if not, the 50mm 1.2 AIS! The bokeh on these are addictive! When in S.F, don't forget the tripod, I know, I always do! The sharpest wide sounds fun for the huge architectural sites, that your eye's will never cease to feast upon! They have them all, Gothic, Victorian, and so on! So many areas to cover, so little time! That 28mm 2.8 AIS, is great for these, plus, the ability to focus to nearly 7 inches, would be killer to snap some photo's, of either their fauna, either animal, or floral, or their statues, or, heck, all at once! have fun with your great set up, and trip!

like this 85mm 1.4 ais, yum! if only i had the dough! i miss my nikkors!

Welcome Surendra and Eric! Looking forward to your images.

Don't ask about which lens to buy you'll get too many answers and your wallet will be empty!

Thank you John. I have been here for about a week to be more precise I've already post a few macro shots and bokehlicious shots from the famous 50 1.2 ais

Just look up a few post and you'll see some christmas pictures from me.
