Here is a smattering of the shots I took for the campus. Most often on a tripod, utilizing my B+W polarizer. Impossibly blue sky already, not a lot done in post with the colors. Taken with my most used lens, Series E 50mm f/1.8.
Very colorful and sharp! I'll bet they will love them!
And not a single touch of the vibrancy/saturation slider either. The 50/1.8E likes the polarizer and "vibrant" setting in camera.
Just had a few minutes tonight to make a couple of panos form last Saturday's dinner on the beach. Both with the 135/3.5 AIS. It's a sharp lens, but it suffers from flare in contrasty situations. I wonder how it would perform with super modern coatings - I bet it would be excellent.
Just what I was going to recommend and show.
Thnx, Jay as well. This picture shows exactly where the cutout should end.
All the other information posted was really helpful for future conversions. Links were bookmarked
I didnīt need to file off a lot. As you can see in the picture below I removed about 1mm in addition to the milling that was originally done and now it works perfect. Jumps to f1.2 when I move the aperture ring to f1.2. Iīm at about f5,6 + 1/2 or maybe f5.6 + 3/5 but it works.
Iīm all for conservative cutting when it comes to stuff like this. Itīs easier to remove more material then to add material, even though I donīt really see a big problem in glueing something on there in that area.
All in all a really easy fix with the help of this awesome community
Thank you all for the + comments
I didn't think this would work...
12 frame hand held vertical pano with a 35mm f/3.5 shift lens and polarizer on a D800.
I was just trying a harsh test with a new Hoya HD2 circular polarizing filter thinking I'd see all sorts of ghosts, but I didn't have any. -Jay-
Hi everyone. Lots of excellent images and conversation esp. about the ai conversions.
I haven't lost interest but at the moment I'm seriously involved with golf - 5 games this week, 5 next week and then the whole week Monday- Friday w/e 10/25 - whew!! Apart from today and Saturday these are all walking so I tend to be a little weary at the end of the day!
Two completely different shots with the 45/2.8 PC-E:
Remaining parts of an abbey were included in a modern building.
Abbey, almshouse, military hospital during the French occupation 1806/1807, madhouse and now a university of music and theatre - quite a history ;-)
The 45 was a bit too long/ for this view, but I liked the light an snapped a few shots. Full shift.
