Lots of great shots and conversations since my last visit 12 days ago, as usual.

Too lazy to comment all.

In the end I took the D600 + 28/2 NC recently CPU'd and the light weight 75-150/3.5 E for my trip to Bariloche, Argentina. No AF lens at all. Just 2 days for most shots, since I was attending the meeting about raptors the other 5 days.

Bariloche in Argentina is beautiful, but I take most shots in Nahuel Huapi National Park, nearby the city.


Lake Mascardi + Corazon Island at centre (excuse for the huge size):

Nahuel Huapi National Park, Bariloche, Argentina.
8 vertical shots + 4 horizontal shots pano.
D600 + Nikkor-N.C 28mm f/2 C ai'd & CPU´d hand held, ISO 250, f/8 at 1/250s

It would be better (for a more homogeneous sky tone) if the sun was not just above the left top.

Georg, awesome shots with the 55mm f1,2.

I´m glad both your comments and Curtis´comments on the differences between the 55mm and 50mm f1,2 lenses made me decide in favor of the 55mm. It really is a different lens and I really start to appreciate the unique qualities of the 55 like shown in the pictures you just posted.

Reagan What a great shot of that steering wheel. The polish on the doors reflecting the sky is so cool.

Georg Nice tonality to these, the backgrounds are really different and interesting. That last one might be a sub listening in...

Chin That sunset makes a fine abstract.

David That 1st shot makes me sad I missed the festival, and the second kid is a great portrait. Those lips look like the Rolling Stones logo.

Petur Your icy shot arrived on the morning of our 1st cold weather!

Jose Excellent pano, it looks like a beautiful place.

Jose, I really like the framing of your wonderful landscape with the trees at left and right acting as natural borders. I'm glad to hear that the fast 28 and the 75-150 E worked so well as compact travel-combo!

Petur, the composition with the wires is telling me "there's an expert behind the camera". Fantastic! The midnight-sun is great too.

Kevin, the college-mascot mutated nicely, ooops, scary, into a creepy beast.



Leighton, Jay and Buddy - thanks for your comments on the woods-shots!
Buddy, the 50/1.2 is maybe sharper, but at least at close or medium distances it's filed-curvature is driving me crazy. I don't know if my copy (bought already used in the 1990's) is out of whack, but this is a real problem for me. The 55/1.2 (I have a late genuine Ai-variant) might be a bit less sharp, but shows much less temper when it comes to field-curvature and vignetting.
Both lenses are close to useless wide-open at greater distances, but that's not a big deal for me, as I prefer to shoot at close range most of the time.
Would love to try the Noct or Nikon's new "58mm-wonder", but these lenses are way too expensive for me.
I hope we will see some more shots with the 55/1.2 on a D300 from you!

Hi gang. Here's one taken with the 50/1.2 in the Little Italy neighborhood, just east of the San Diego airport. I've always been fascinated by how low the planes travel over the hills as they approach the runway.

A few test shots at f1.2 were a bit disappointing (coma), but stopping down to f2 took care of that. Boosting ISO to a crazy level (8063) worked better than anticipated and actually stopped the plane without too much blur. The D800 clearly sees better in the night than I do.

Haven't posted in a while. The Nikon DF has my juices flowing so I took the 135/2 AIS out while trick-or-treating tonight. Used the poor-mans VR - i.e, pure lens mass.

Interesting about field-curvature with the 50/1.2, I had to look it up for a definition. I'm not sure I've seen this with my 50/1.2, but I'm going to have a look to see.
