Ronny I was looking at your flower photos when Melody came by and said to tell you "they are beautiful" - I agree!

Rick very nice with the 50mm 1.2 and what a beautiful dog and the macros are very nice!

Georg I must say again that I really love this set of photos. Such dramatic scenes expertly captured!

James the 35mm 1.4 is an excellent landscape lens as demonstrated in you photo - wonderful!

Chin love the lines

Samy great night shots the lights are well exposed

Scott you are making wonderful photos using the 18mm 3.5 and the 50mm 1.4 was the perfect lens for these scenes. Well done!!!

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments, especially you Jeff for going back so far just to comment!

Very good point Peter. A good example of the latter was me yesterday evening. After about an hour of what's surely mild Baltimore December chill at the Inner Harbor, I was done trying to get any more pictures and headed right back to warmth.

Georg,

To get great shots like yours you first have to get out there when everybody else curls up next to the fireplace.

Samy and Leighton, I hope the lights stay on for you. This storm is thankfully passing to the south of us.

Here are a few more from the storm we had last weekend. They do not hold a candle to Georg's wonderful storm shots. Georg, I tried a couple b&w conversions here. You have got me trying after seeing the nice ones you do.

I usually do not shoot into the sun, but tried one here and the 18 3.5 ais did not flare to bad. Thanks for looking.


Scott- Love the 50/1.4 SC shot. Lighting and composition is fantastic. Nice job on the barn shot as well with the 18mm!

Did a quick test of the Nikon 180 2.8 AIS (a thread favorite here) vs. the Leica Apo Telyt 3.4, which I have been recently playing with. Not sure if these tests are going to show much distinction, but this was a first side by side trial. As scientific as I can be, lens balanced on window sill and so the sharpness may be not so comparable.

First both wide open.

Leica at 3.4.

And Nikon at 2.8

Not sure if Nikon vs. other brands tests are part of the rules, but what the heck, Leighton's been slacking of late

And to try to check them on more even terms, these two are with both set at f4.

Love the set Scott. But I REALLY like these two, especially the B&W one.

Nice comparison Samy. I have to say, I like the contrast out of the Nikon better. In fact, I'd love to see more comparisons between our beloved lenses and the other manufacturers.

BTW, I'm not the thread police.

Two from a lens I don't usually like. It must suspect I'm buying a Zeiss.

Scott, what a wonderful winter-series! The barn works great in color and B&W. The conversions are nicely and very naturally done, I'm always over the top with SilverEfex ;-)

A shot from my wanderings around Zürich today. When the Alps are visible, it's hard to resist. 50mm f/1.2 AI-s stopped down to f/5.6.

Here are a few color shots from the Yosemite trip. Two days in the park was great, but also frustrating. So much to see and photograph, and so little time. A month or two would be nice.

Samy, wow, what happened to the poor Mini? Nice night-shots, both would maybe benefit from a slightly richer exposure.
I see something like camera-shake (or subject movement) on the Leica-shots (looked at the large sized samples over at flickr). In my experience the Apo-Telyt 180/3.4 is the better performer, especially at greater distances.
In most cases I can easily pick the Apo-Telyt-shots from other images taken with a similar focal-length - the complete absence of bokeh-fringing is amazing.

Philip, what a beautiful scenery! The framing with the swan and boat is great.

Jeff, the framing of your Yosemite-sunset is excellent.

Ray, great to see how well that 20/3.5 works for you!

Chin, I'm so used to your enigmatic/cryptic captions, it would be hard for me to readjust my mind to titles like "a moving train" ;-) Great work!

James, beautiful sunrise! I should spend more times at lakes or the sea…

Rick, very cool macro-shots with your 200/4!

Thank you Ray. Scott I really love the barn shots(color) Did you use a polarizer or you did some Hdr?? I want to experiment with Hdr and focus stacking myself. I have to tried to do pano too!! What do you want, i am a newbie in photography and I have lots to learned! !

Thanks for the kind comments on the storm-shots and the gymnastics-image!
There were a lot of photographers (and TV-guys) at the pier. I'm sure some photogs came home with a busted/dusted camera. Sand is brutal on gear. My gear gets wet on a regular basis (shooting in rain or snow), but I try to keep the sand-blasting to a minimum.
Peter, I've read Roger's blog-post about the color-run ;-) Seriously, I think about getting a decent waterproof P&S for stuff like this.

D700 with micro-Nikkor 105/2.8 AI-s...my favorite and most versatile lens...and some bounce flash off the ceiling.
