Thanks to all those that commented on my images from yesterday!

Here's a few more stragglers.

First the super-pano from stitching 10 images from the 16/3.5 fisheye together to get over 180 deg. of view:

f/8, ISO 100, 1/500 sec






Then a shot with the 135/3.5 AIS, followed by the fish again:






  NIKON D800    0.0 mm f/0.0 lens    135mm    f/5.6    1/750s    100 ISO    -1.0 EV  






  NIKON D800    0.0 mm f/0.0 lens    16mm    f/8.0    1/750s    100 ISO    -1.0 EV

Thanks guys! I don't get the FX gear out much due to other issues, hopefully there will be more opportunities this summer.

Ray I think my kit is just about where I want it to be. Not sure about the 135 F2 just now. I sold 5 lenses that I wasn't using this week. Weeding out my collection was a little painful for a hoarder like me. I sold the 24mm 2.8, 35mm 2.8, 135 2.8, 180 2.8 AI and the 100-300 AIS. They have all gone to a better home. I still want to sell the TC -14, 14A and 200 AI as well as the Nikon FA and 35-135.

Thanks to everyone for the comments on my new 55mm 1.2


You're a braver man than I am Ray. Even though my rather abundant collection of lenses doesn't get much use, it seems impossible I'll ever let any of them go away. However, I certainly appreciate that kit building can include massaging of the sort you're doing at the moment. And, perhaps more to the point at the moment, your decision to pick up a 55 f/1.2 K, is noteworthy. As you note above, you'll likely do quite a bit of wide open shooting with that lens. Since I bought my copy, the 50 f/1.2 AI-s practically never gets into the camera bag. I love how it performs.

Happy shooting Ray. I glanced about at the beautiful day today, with brilliant skies and gorgeous clouds and the thought crossed my mind that I needed to put my camera bag that is at the moment on the living room floor, in the back of my car. February in the Bay Area is definitely a time with dramatic, cloud filled skies. I better be ready to shoot...

I'm always amazed by the sharpness of the old 180/2.8 ED :


D800, AI-S 180/2.8 ED, @f/2.8, 100 ISO.




Crop 100% (some fine details are deteriorated by compression for forum !)

Sar, your bird-portraits are quite an advertisement for the venerable MF-Nikkors! Great job behind the camera!

Only a few millimeters difference in terms of focal-lenght, but quite a difference in terms of size, handling and weight:

Trio von georgsfoto auf Flickr
PC-Nikkor 35/2.8, PC-E Micro-Nikkor 45/2.8D und PC-Nikkor 28/3.5
funky shaped highlights proudly delivered by a Nikkor-H 85/1.8 at f/5.6 - should have used focus-stacking ;-)

An issue when handling the PC 35/2.8 is the proximity between aperture-ring (second from above) and the focusing-ring:
it's all too easy to change focus unwanted when stopping manually down the lens. This can especially happen when the photographer is wearing gloves or has cold hands ;-)
The ring on top is the pre-select-ring for the aperture.

PC 35/2.8 pictured, the similar PC 28/3.5 is free of this issue

Ray, your lens set looks to be very comprehensive and "almost" complete :-). Congrats! Regarding the red berries and snow shots, I find that white balance is critical in LR (and non of the presets work that well for my taste, I end up somewhere between Daylight and Cloudy most of the time outdoors), and in this instance a little fill flash really helped to pop the red while maintaining proper snow exposure.

Samy, that 105 f4T is one cool looking lens. It's amazing that the barrel can be so slim for a full frame lens.

Kevin, welcome back. It'll be great to see your work here again, though I've also enjoyed in on the other two "NKMF" shooter thread.

John, this latest round of shots, esp the third shot with the 16mm, is simply a wonderful endorsement of that lens and a showcase for your talent in using that fisheye effectively.

Georg, cool collection of shift/tilt lenses. I toy with the idea once in awhile, but find myself wanting the tilt as well (which means the modern shift/TS which are not quite in the same price league as the older shift only lenses).

This turned out a bit differently than what I expected lol
She was soooooo friendly as are some strays are wont to be
Everytime I knelt down she would come over and rub her sides on my legs, walking in a criss-cross fashion
Which also meant taking photos of her was an abysmal failure
I think my wife wanted to cat-nap her back ... if only we weren't in Japan
Lounging around the small roads of the quaint old village, she didn't seem to give a rat's about laying in the middle of one
Surprisingly drivers just stopped and waited for us to lure her away
... with the promise of pats and strokes of course

Lucked out with the 135 2.8 AIS

Lot of good images lately!

Andy, I like the mood set by your street picture.

Ken, I agree about Italien foods but not Trattoria was my target... Enoteca... I suppose that enoteca refers to Italien wines... They are very good for this freezing season overhere.

BTW impressive pictures of the Citadel!


Samy, good info about 10.5cm f4 T... I never read anything about this strange lens.

John, again a great set but the third is really spectacular!

Rafael Another great looking picture using that unique lens!

Sar: Well done sir! You are mastering the 180/2.8. I have some lust for it but I have a great copy of its AF sister so I must avoid the redundancy...

Georg, nice trinity! One day I must add a PC lens to my stable... I have hesitations because I do not have much patience and I do not know if I'll really use its potential. But I enjoy watching your (and others) work with this kind of glass!

A few recent images. First represents a new Eastern Ortodox Church building from my town. I had a hard time to fit it in the frame, using 35/2 AI-S chipped, on a D5200 sensor and FOV. BTW I am in love with the performance, size and weight of D5200. I wish a bigger viewfinder but I can live with it as is. One good thing is that when used with chipped lenses I can use focus trap which is very nice in some circumstances.







this is the B&W (con)version:






and this is a charchoaled cooked version, just to add drama... maybe overcooked..






This is a street nightscape from Sin-City (thanks Georg!) with 85/2 AI-S, also chipped in house. A fine lens in a very pocketable size. My copy is usable wide open while my 28/2 and 35/2 need to be stopped down at least one fstop for similar performance.







and a flower to challenge Curtis, with the same 85 wide open as well:

Thank you Curtis. The addition of the 55 1.2 made letting the other lenses go a little bit easier. Plus the fact that my young friend who purchased my D7000 bought the 24 and the 100-300. I get to see his excitement as he shares the photos that he has taken with them. The 55 mm 1.2 is a great lens and I am very pleased at it's sharp detailed photos. I call mine the "Dream Catcher"
Everyone is going to happy about your kit moving to the car because we know you are getting a little spark to use some of your wonderful kit!

Ray thank you for the tips on you success in LR. I will for sure take that advice to heart.

Rafael has been posting some great photos using the 15mm 3.5 I saw one on E-bay this week and was so tempted.

Mahai it's so great to see you back and posting some beautiful photos to boot.

Sar your hawk photo is terrific - such sharp details.

Georg what a nice collection of TS lenses. I am very intrigued by the use of those lenses. An interest has been stirred

Samy your collection of the older Nikkors is great and they still produce such color and detail - good job!

Ken, Reagan did express an interest in going just yesterday. I can't wait. Although the timing is not the best for me. I usually get home about 3 AM on Saturday Nights

The Dream Catcher? That's tickled my fancy heh do the rest have pet names too?
In a rather peculiar fashion, my mind has assigned gender to my lenses when I think of packing my kit
For e.g. the 14-24mm is always masculine

I was out yesterday walking a trail that my Doctor had told me about. The trail borders private property that's inclosed by a barbed wire fence. As I was walking along I couldn't help but notice the vines wrapping the fence in all of it's natural glory. So entitled the photo "Mother Nature is relentless!" Taken with the "Dream Catcher" 55mm 1.2K
