Thanks for the comments. The trouble with photographing Wright's buildings is the amount of glass and the tendency to capture yourself in the framing. Maybe he intentionally invented the "selfie."

Rafael - The lens is the 20mm 2.8 AiS with CRC but just before the SIC coating.

Ray - I have the 50mm 1.2 and will bring it when we get together. I like this a lot and this is my second one. The first I used to death. The picture I'm posting will show that it is sharp as well as giving a natural look. Notice the top of

Ken, very nice composition, I like how the water kind of sparkles.

John, looks like you "nailed" those shots. Go Seahawks!

Andy, the puzzle looks a bit intimidating.

Chuong, great hand held image of the bird. Nicely done.

Leighton, if you were running for political office, your slogan would be: "and there will be a 50-135 in every camera bag if I am elected" BTW, your smoke filled valley image was very nice.

Ken, the building looks very interesting, I like especially your take on the "Front Door". The fly-fisherman is very nicely captured too.

Chuong, great portrait of the "Reiher" (sorry for throwing a German term in, don't recall the correct English name of this bird).

Andy, nice jigsaw-set!

John, manicure seems to be a serious thing. Will you replace your 135/2 with another 135 (or 125mm ;-) lens or just leave a gap?

Rafael, interesting take on the cactus - #1 is easily identified as slide-shot, #3 looks pretty "contemporary" in terms of contrast and colors ;-)

Leighton, love your smoke-filled valley! The light is wonderful.

Don, the "Stranger" is excellent. Makes me think about a spy-exchange at the Glienicker Brücke (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glienicke_Bridge).

PARKING IS TOUGH THIS TIME OF YEAR

Another winter day in Florida. Places to eat are crowded and the prices are higher
I guess thats what happens when its 80 degrees and you don't want your boat to sit in the ice up north
Also big boat show this weekend

First with 105 2.5 others with 24 2.8
By the way none of the boats are mine

Thanks for the comments on the harbor/architecture-set!
The 24/2 is a very special lens with quite some character. The triangular-shaped highlights are unique in this size. The 28/2 will show highlights in a more rounded triangular shape.

The 85/2 Ais seems to be a solid performer in a handy package - I couldn't detect really weak points in it's performance so far. Maybe it's biggest fault is just the fact that several 85/1.4's are available for the bokeh-afficionado

Here's a shot from today, subject was the local port. I've used the 16/3.5 to get a nice sunstar, but the sun was already running/hiding for cover ;-)

Reagan, congrats to your D7100! A really interesting set - boats and yachts, but also fishing vessels are my favorite subjects. Could already spot some well-known models on your fine shots...

^^^^^^^^^^^

Thanks, my fingers are a little cramped in the front but I will get used to it
I also bought lightroom 5 but of course I have to upgrade my Mac operating system first
It is so light it hardly feels like a camera
I am almost afraid to put a large lens on it

Reagan

Love the mood in your B/W ship photo I have NIK software I just need to learn how to use it

Well, just use the night-hours

Just joking - would love to spend some quality-time at a quiet pond with my fishing-gear, just can't make this happen ;-(

Georg, very nice harbor scene with the 16/3.5. You have great depth of field in this.

Reagan, congratulations on the D7100. Nice first images with it. It probably does feel light and small to you but they are very tough bodies. At least my D7000 is.

Some great shots in the last page or two

Ken - i thought you were supposed to face the water while fishing

Reagan - nice boats, we have lots here too, all waaaaaaaaay out of a normal person's price range too. We had the co-founder of Microsoft's superyacht here a while ago, will have to look for pics I took of that.

Raboof - stunning ship image, love it.

As for our jigsaw, we bought it in the Post Office while having our 9 !!!! passport application forms processed - that's 4 UK renewals and 5 new Australian passports. $2200 in total

On a happier note, my 135/2.8 just arrived !

I now have 6 MF lenses - 28/2.8, 50/1.8, 55/3.5 micro, 105/2.8 micro, 135/2.8 and 180/2.8. What else do I need, er I mean want ? I was thinking about 105/2.5 but not sure if the micro version I have already fills that gap. Would love a 50/1.2 but it's not a FL I have ever used really. Oh, and I'm "money poor" at the moment anyway so it's irrelevant

Took out the 5.8 CM. unique look for sure, my copy does not focus to infinity at 1.4. but if at 5.6 it does.

Haha love the images Rafael, especially the windmill, rather unique design (to me at least)
But the captions, they really made me double up in laughter!

Likely replacing it with the 135/2 APO Zeiss . . . . want closer focusing and better flare control.
The 135/2 AIS has done me very well in the past though . . .

I'm paring down my FX gear to mostly primes - 17-35/2.8, 70-200/2.8VRII, and 24-85AFS are going plus a few more primes will go too (105/2.5 & 200/4). However, the 16/3.5's, 45/2.8P, and 400/5.6 ED aren't going anywhere anytime soon . . .
