Couple of quick questions:

1) Is this a good guy to send the lenses to for conversion? http://www.aiconversions.com/index.html

2) Are there any of these lenses I should not bother sending? I've read the 300mm is lousy, but I'm still curious to shoot with it I have a 50 1.4 Nikkor S, 135 2.8 Nikkor Q, 200 f4 Nikkor Q, and a 300 4.5 Nikkor P - the very first one.

Thank you!!!


1. Jon is great!
2. I can't say for the 300, but the rest I have used and like them all. The 135 Q was my favorite lens.

A few from yesterday. Again either 28/2.8 or 55/3.5 micro

Had a wander round the port area of Cairns. As it was saturday the boat repair yards were mostly shut but an open gate presented itself !

Also, just unexpectedly won a 180/2.8 ED on ebay for $279 Turns out I was the only bidder.

So that's - OUT - 300/f4 afs, 1.7TC and IN - 80-200AF D 2.8, 135/2.5 and 180.28ED. Need the AF for portraits, weddings etc.

Andy, congrats on the 180 win! And I really like the first one of the line of trawlers.

Here's one with the 28 f2 N. Washington DC at night.

Andy, love your harbor-set! Fishing-boats in B&W are exactly my cup of tea (tea with something else poured in, and I'm not talking about milk or sugar ;-).
Congrats to your 180/2.8 ED, it's a great lens.
Btw, the first image of your set with the cat around the christmas-tree was excellent.

Samy, I remember your day-light-shots of the Suntrust-building and like the night-time-image too.

Leighton and Samy - no, I don't think about selling my MF-Nikkors, would only do so if I was forced to. Sorry for my mistakable choice of words

Here's another MF-shot, had really trouble to nail focus, a common problem at medium distances for me.

Love the reflection of the construction worker.

I'm so slow sometimes

I just worked out that the 135 f2 on a DX body becomes the same as a 200mm ish f2.0

Now that is a weight off my shoulders

Steve, weight, size and money are not the only differences between 135/2 on DX and 200/2 on FX: in terms of IQ the latter combo is not rivaled by the wallet- and shoulder-friendly 135/2-DX-combo.

My guess is its his new big gun, the 500mm f/4(?). I agree, the first two are great.

Hope to have the D7000 before Christmas. I miss it... The Fuji was a great camera and I actually like the files out of it better than the D7000, but I was hoping for something lighter in weight, while the body is lighter, I ended up having to take extra stuff with it to accomplish the same task and the weight savings became minimal. Plus, there were issues with file conversions that made PP a more daunting task. The only way I

Kevin, I'm really sorry the Fuji didn't worked for you. I shoot the X-Pro1 almost every day now and like it a lot. But it's for sure not the best camera to use with longer MF-lenses.
I really hope the strap/harness-solution will make your D7000 more enjoyable to use.

Great images everyone.

This will be my last post for at least a week, since I am leaving to the countryside this afternoon.

Flower in the Brazilian savannah:

D600 + Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 AI CPUd hand held, ISO 400, f/5.6 at 1/200s.

D600 + Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 AI CPUd hand held, ISO 500, f/5.6 at 1/250s. ~30% cropped. Best option would be a tripod, but I stood as still as I could.


Happy Christmas to everyone!!

Andy, congrats on the 180mm lens. Sometimes you need to be lucky. I was only bidder for a 55 f1,2 a little while ago.

Even though it would be very off topic here, it would be interesting to hear your thoughts of the 80-200 f2,8 AF-D on the D800. I love the lens on my D300 but have been wondering how it will perform on a high resolution full frame camera.

Kevin, looking forward to see your D7000 and 135mm Nikkor Q arrive back in this thread soon.

I might finally be able to do some photography tomorrow for the first time in a while. If weather allows Im off for a nighttime walk through an old city center with a good friend. I already packed a bag with a D300 and FM2, 14-24 AF-S Nikkor, 28mm f2,8 Ai Nikkor, 55 f1,2 S.C and 105 f2,5 P.C lenses and various bits and pieces that go with nighttime photography like tripod, remote release, some ND filters and SB 600 and SB 700 speedlites.

I still have problems with MF on my D800E, so most of the times I use my AF lenses.
With a granddaughter crawling around MF is impossible for me, so I sold a few AF lenses in favor of some AF.

I love the construction worker photo Georg, that reflection and his serious look, it's perfect.

Andy, mmm prawn trawlers. Memories are funny things, once I saw that, I closed my eyes and swore I could remember the taste of Gulf Spencer prawns, it was as if they were right in my mouth! Thanks for sharing that. I'm cooking prawns tomorrow for sure!
