Awesome. I am watching a 180mm AIS on eBay currently. What about wide angle for landscape? I don't have budget to get the 14-24 - but would like something wider than my 24-70 if possible.


I have to agree with all the others Dan

The 180 is a favourite of mine too ....

So hope you win the lens .... i'm sure there are kneeling pads everywhere going down just for your quest Dan.

Let's pray it comes through for you

Really enjoying your photos the past couple of pages Steve.

Ian, that's a great portrait, and I really enjoy hearing how you got the shot you wanted. As someone who never uses flash as a rule, it's good to see photos from people who do, and know what they're using.

A few photos of my own from the past few days. First, an empty laundromat on College St in Toronto with the 28mm f/2.8 AI-s.

Wood sticking out of the back of a truck on my walk home from work. Again with the 28mm f/2.8 AI-s.

Out last night for some street shooting with the 50mm f/1.2 AI-s wide open (natch).

Took a day to myself today, and went for a wander in Manchester.

One of my favourite places is Castlefields down by the canal junction.

There is a place where you can actually shoot about 6 or seven bridges in the same frame.

But I made do with just four (I think for this shot)

Thank you everyone for the comments on the wooden chair scene. It was a very peaceful morning. Leighton, regrettably this is not my front yard (don't I wish).

Need some advice. I have only been with Nikon since the digital age so am not familiar with the older film bodies. A good friend of mine is starting a film darkroom class and needs an inexpensive Nikon film body that will use ai and ais lenses. AF is not required but does need full manual settings (shutter, aperture), aperture priority and shutter priority. Looking at the internet, Nikon has made many over the years. Looks like the FM, FM2, FM10, and FM3A would all fit the bill. With electronics, the N-2020 looks promising. Any thoughts? Think inexpensive.
Thank you
Scott

Scott, how many does he need? N2002 and N90 are both nice bodies. The FM10 I believe is still being manufactured. From what I hear it is built like a tank.

Scott, if he needs not only a fully manual exposure setting, but also an A- and S-setting this would rule out many classic Nikons. For "electronic bodies" I could recommend the N-90/N-90s) or the slightly older N-8008s. These cameras have a high-eyepoint-finder, a sync-speed of 1/250sec and can be used in fully manual mode (except for film-transport). The spot-metering is a great feature too.

Scott I would suggest the Nikon FA. It was the most advanced Nikon camera ever made for AI and AIS lenses. It is the ONLY camera ever made by Nikon that will allow you to shoot manual lenses in P, S, A, and M. Plus it was the first to use matrix metering. The same system that every camera, even today, is modeled after. With a top speed of 1/4000 It can handle anything. I paid $100.00 for mine, similar cost on Ebay.





Plus it is just so darn pretty
edit: Here's a black one on Ebay for $105 and it comes with extra motor drive with a 6 month guarantee

Thank you Jeff, Georg, and Ray for the input. I will pass this info on to my friend. Ray, that is a pretty body. Reminds me of my Pentax SP-1000. Sorry I do not have that anymore.
