Thank you Scott. I couldn't really capture it the way I saw it. I need a lot more practice.
Thanks Buddy for the your tips about this lens. I am extremely happy. I can wait to get the aperture ring back so I can try it a F2

Cant credit the camera on the car photos I accidentally shot at iso 1600 credit Lightroom for these

I've had several D7000's I was always happy with the high ISO performance. Your ISO 1600 photos look the same on my monitor as ISO 200 would. My bitch with the D7000's was that I never had one that focused right and Nikon couldn't / wouldn't properly fix it on the 2 that were under warranty.

I am much happier with the D300 I bought from you and my D700. Both sharp with all my lenses.

Thanks Nikos - and everyone. Yes, I'm liking the darkness too, maybe too much. Time to try something different.
Reagan - I don't know what you mean by "cash" poor - I'm just plain poor. Nikon, Zeiss, and the final blow, Leica , will do that to you.

Ray - glad you like Mt Blanc. Well worth going winter or summer - it's stunning. I love your snow flakes too - thanks for showing how.

Samy - thanks for the support. The virtual idea is that we would run it as if there was a real lens (or focal length) being sent from person to person and each would have a week at adding to the blog.

While Nikki was a resounding success if we do it again who would take the risk? If an exotic lens, there's the danger of loss or damage? If a mundane lens we might lose interest. To make a new blog our own will once again get a bit of excitement going.

There are many places where, for example, people have posted images with say a 28 3.5 PC but not one of them has people who have got to know each other as we have here.

Georg - the Baltic harbour shot is superb!

Ken - thanks. I really like the piece of history too, well captured.

Ray (FL) - thanks. Great to see you having fun with your new lens, lovely clarity. I also like the comp and colours of the 20mm image

Larry - very nice stadium pic.

Choung - you always have pristine kit. Like the porn.

Rafael - the close ups are terrific.

Roberto - good to see you and your pics.

Ben - I like your "dark phase" - the subjects are very well isolated.

Chin - good capture.

Reagan - wow. Love the Tbird.

Steve - the yacht is a beaut.

Chuong - your F3 is a beauty ;-)

Rafael, the palm bark is really nice as abstract - love those kind of shots! The ivy-image has some super-cool bokeh. On the wild side for sure, but I love it for this shot.

Roberto, really nice work with the 50-135/3.5!

Ben, my fav from your fine set with the 85/1.4 is #1 - superb!

Chin, the Japanese fishing boats are shaped in a unique fashion. Nice shot - do the fishermen catch squid or fish with it?

Ray (from Florida) - the park-image with the 20/3.5 is great - very nice framing with the wooden "bollards" and the curved path.

Reagan, nice work at the car-show! My fav is the last shot.

Steve, nice set with the 50-135! My favorite is the dramatic B&W-shot of the sailboat - nobody would have guessed that



Thanks for the comments on the fishing-boat image!

Was at an "experimental farm/ranch" today, but my hopes for some cool close-up-shots (had the fisheye already mounted) were smashed.
Anyway, here's a "count the piglets"-image for those who care


D3s + 85/1.8H at f/2.8, ISO3200 and /100sec

Howdy everyone. Where do y'all get your MF Nikkors repaired in the USA? My 50-300 4.5 ais is just not sharp, no matter what I try. I get great results with the 50-135, 180 2.8 and 55 3.5 micro, so I don't think it is bad technique.

One online source ( Roland Vink or Thom Hogan) says the lens can be bumped out of alignment. I even bought a Service Manual on the lens, but I just don't feel comfortable taking it apart.

I love this lens and I want to enjoy using it.

Any help, please?

There are authorized Nikon repair places that are privately owned all over the country. I have one 15 minutes away. They are great for simple stuff.

Its a shame that the one near me is freaking expensive... Its why I took up repairing my own stuff. I also question a shop that doesn't know what CLA means.
