Andy, those starscape exposures are really nice. I should give those a try some day. Havenīt found a quiet out of the way place that doesnīt cast light but Iīm sure there must be such a place around here somewhere.

Ray, I think youīll like the 55mm. The non-scalloped pre-Ai version should have the same optics as the 55 f1,2 S.C I own and itīs my favorite manual focus lens, even on a crop sensor camera

Ray - nice looking lens. Enjoy.

Jay - great image stack. Love it.

Andy - I like the mood of last one with the observatory

Thanks Georg and Peter.

Jay - Nice vibrant color in the flower shot.

Andy - Really nice star trails and night skies. I love the colors in the last one.

John - Beautiful color in the second one and you're right, that guy in the first one looks like he's in the middle of nowhere.

Kevin - Your forgiven...but don't let it happen again!

Andy, your stars-set is fantastic! #6547 and 6543 are my favorites.

John, please count me in on your ferry-shot-fan-list! The light is superb on your captures. Btw, still don't own a tablet for remote-controlling - can't make up my mind which model to choose (your Samsung is not available over here).

Thanks for the likes and comments on the flowers. The tube on the 300mm f3.5 seems to work pretty well. I also tried a close up lens, the 6T with the 300mm and that also worked out well.

John Such pretty pastel colors to your sunset photos.

Andy Nice to see the southern skies, I used to haul my telescope around in a VW van and look for dark places to deploy. What's in the observatory?
Below is a link to a shot of the skies from the N hemisphere that I posted on page 3301.

Thanks chaps. The beauty of living in a country a similar size to the USA but with only 20 million people and most of them on the coast means inland there is very little light pollution but as I say, you can see sky like that where I live if you get away from the street lights.

I'm not totally happy with them (too much coma) but will be giving it another go in a few months.

There's an old naval aviator saying about the weather when it's really clear. They call it "severe clear". Well yesterday was one of those day's here in the valley.

The Alleghenies has a really nice feel to it, I like the way the terrain of the cornfield matches the shapes of the mountains.

Thank you Georg, Kevin, Ken, Buddy and Peter for the comments on my new 55mm 1.2 Can't wait for some real life photo ops to try it out - more to come from this lens

Jay, Curtis would be so proud for using tubes. Beautiful shot

Andy nice work on the celestial shots not sure which one I like best, there's so many to choose from

John I like the first one - looks like a surfer on the water.

Leighton these are terrific shots. The second one does it for me. It's well framed by the gate and very inviting. Well done!

Hello everyone! I am new to this forum, but I am really amazed by all the great photos everyone takes.

I picked up an series E 50mm lens the other day for almost nothing at all, and I must say I think it is a great little lens. I tried it out on our hamster... Problem with photographing hamsters with a manual focus lens is that they usually don't stay in one place very long. Well, definitely not long enough for me to focus, since I'm still not really used to it. So out of perhaps ten shots, one or two had acceptable focus... But I guess it's good practice. As long as what I'm photographing is sitting fairly still I don't find focusing especially hard on my "baby Nikon", but when it moves it gets trickier.



She was really thinking of jumping off, but I managed to catch her in time. Like all hamsters, she is slightly suicidal ;-)

Hello Obrink, welcome to this thread!
I'm really glad your hamster survived the shooting, as there's already a shortage of hamster-shots at this fine thread ;-)
Btw, you might add your first name to your profile.

Leighton, the depth of your B&W-shot is amazing. Love your conversion (just missing some grain, sorry, that's just me ;-).

Obrine Welcome Nice detail in the hamster.
Eric I still don't see what the problem is, so try posting a .jpg excerpt to make it clear.

Very early flowering according to the local gardeners.

I can see why this lens is your favorite Buddy. I see from the photosynthesis site that the SC and K are very similar, same element lay out, bronze colored coatings ect, so I think your are correct about the optics. I have the aperture ring out to get AI'd but I am using the lens on my camera without the ring so I can only shoot wide open.
Here are the first shots using the 55mm 1.2K and D600

Ray, Judging by these, you're gonna love this lens.

Philippe - Thanks. I love your shot, especially the dog and the way it's lit. Did you enhance it a bit?
