Jay - Nice find with the 1940 Chevy.

Scott - Lovely rural scenes. Looks like this could be around the corner. More please.

Ray - The M&M peanuts are great! The 85 I presume?

Jeff - Now here's a case of being at the right place at the right time. Great capture and well thought out.

John - Nice of you to drop in again. I know just how you feel about the DF! Your set is wonderful but I don't get something. Just what exactly are your girls supposed to be?

Thanks guys.

Samy, loved the crazy OOF lights;

Jeff, great timing!

Scott, liked the rich colours captured by the 28/2.8

John, what a crazy "mask" in the tree trunk

Jay, loved the cars' perspectives with 24 PC.

They had somewhat skimpy dance costumes on - but it was a bit cold, so they had to wear a jacket and some tights over top - kind of defeated the purpose. What you can't see is all the grown-up makeup they have on - mascara, eye shadow, lipstick, rouge, the works!

John, the "porch-debate" is my fav from your fine set. The color-cast works well to visually enhance the atmosphere.

Jeff, the plane-shot is wonderful! Excellent timing and fantastic idea.
I've found my 50/1.2 to be a lot better at f/2 compared to it's max aperture, especially at medium or great distances. For close-range-shots I like to open it up, though.

Scott, the fence-photograph is perfectly framed, the weather was cooperating too: very nice!

Rafael, the "devil with a neck-tie" is a great street-shot!

Ray, nice colorful bokeh-play! Is this candy of some sort?

Samy, that's some wild bokeh on your twix-shot!

Jose, very cool avalanche-shot from the Argentinian-Chilean-border! This part of the world must offer plenty of fantastic photo-subjects…

Tom and Scott - thanks for your comments on the "wood-set"!

Here are some shots from today, hope it's okay to fill this fine thread with some more PC-Nikkor-images ;-)


the local fairground-hall, shot this one after leaving a game-fair, D700, PC 28/3.5 at f/8
no or just minimal shift used


merged/stitched two horizontal shots with the PC 85/2.8D - one shifted all the way up, the other shifted down


the red "slip cover" made me shoot this after taking a few more usual images of the sailing vessel
D700 and PC 28/3.5 at f/11, shifted about 5mm down

Thanks Georg. Yes they are a very popular candy. I had a couple bags left over from trick-or treat.
Georg these shots are simply amazing. Your framing is impeccable and such sharpness. Well done!

Some fun with the 50mm 1.4 K AI'D. I keep trying to talk myself into a 55mm 1.2 but this little lens makes me hold off.

Finally, someone with a K 50/1.4... I have one of these that I haven't used because I didn't want to AI convert it. Glad to see images with it, very nice!

Been enjoying the photos posted!

I have been working a little too much recently, but walked out to take some pumpkin pictures last eve. Instead, I got a snap of my 14yo daughter by pumpkin-light, and kind of like it despite the blur.

I own a 50mm f2 Ai as well as a 50mm f1,4 S.C which, if I´m not mistaken, should be pretty much the same lens as the K. It´s a very nice lens (Kevin, you no longer need to convert yours. The F mount adapter for your Fuji doesn´t feature an Aperture indexing lever so the lens just fits on there without modification)

It´s a completely different lens when compared to the 55 f1,2 though. Not sure about the 50mm f1,2 since I never used one. There are many occasions where I would love to bring both the 55 f1,2 as well as the 50 f1,4, just because both lenses can be used for completely different interpretations of the same scene.

I guess one of these days I´ll have to do some comparison shots with the two. Personally I find the 50 f1,4 to be the more contrasty of the two lenses. The 55 f1,2 is the creative lens of the two and requires much more consideration to get the best results. The results however can be so different between these two that even if both are "standard primes" I consider them completely different tools.

Some Autumn impressions with the 55 f1,2 S.C

Warning, more toadstools

55 f1,2 S.C @ f2



55 f1,2 S.C @ f1,4



55 f1,2 S.C @ f1,4



55 f1,2 S.C @ f1,2



And one just for fun, 55 f1,2 S.C @ f5,6

Buddy I would love to see a direct comparison between the two lenses. If you can find any extra time to take a couple shots of the same subject using the 55 1.2 and the 50 1.4, I certainly would appreciate that. If there truly is that much of a difference in the DOF and bokeh I might just consider getting the 55.

Ray, Kevin, I´ll see where and when I find some time and suitable subjects to compare the two of them.

I´m not exactly sure where or how the technical qualities like bokeh and DoF differ. Nothing I can give you in numbers anyways. For the moment it´s just that to me both lenses feel completely different in how they render a scene.

I´ll also try to include some obviously flawed photos showing some of the more quirky stuff the 55 f1,2 can do. Infinity focus @ f1,2 with stuff happening at close range on the image borders would be a nice example of the latter.

Ray, nice bokeh-play - the 50/1.4K should be a lot of fun for wide-open-shots in front of backlit foliage…

Kevin, to be honest: I prefer the "un-painted" B&W-version of the mascot.

Ronny, great work on the wilting flower!

Eric, I like your portraits in general and the latest one too. I wonder why you didn't raised the ISO.

Buddy, nice shots from your walk through the woods. I hope the wild hog was behind a fence ;-) I wholeheartedly agree about the different characters of the 55/1.2 vs 50/1.4SC.


Thanks for the comments on my recents shots - much appreciated!
