Great work everyone! Apart of giving some likes I was unable this past week to comment or to share here. I see that the fast glass is again fashioned. I must wipe the dust from my f/1.2 MF trio some day

For now I want to share three images captured with D800 and 45/2.8 AI-P. First image is from Bucharest, right on the street that was called "The Victory of Socialisme Bvd." Down the road you can see a bit one of the craziest buildings ever built, a megalomaniac project of Ceausescu, the so called House of People,

Mihai - Glad to see someone else on this thread with a 45/2.8 AI-P! Great little lens for the D800 . . .

John, thanks for sharing this really interesting read! Regarding the performance-differences at close vs far away distances: that's an under-rated, maybe unknown to many photographers, phenomenon.
Some excellent optics (the Leica Apo-Telyt-R 180/3.4 and the Zeiss Planar 100/3.5 for Hasselblad to name just two legendary lenses) were especially designed for long-distance work and are not made for close-range-photography. The Zeiss-lenses you've tested obviously belong to the opposite camp.
That's why I take all "test-chart-tests" with a some grains of salt. Distortion btw is in almost all cases depending on the reproduction-scale too.
That said: I really like my 135/2 Ais and the

Yes, I've found several of my lenses that do better near than far or vice versa:
180/3.4 APO Telyt - Tack sharp at infinity, but gets noticeably softer at close distances
70-200/4 VR - 200mm is very very sharp at infinity, but gets softer the closer in you focus while 70-150mm are the opposite
400/5.6 ED AI & 400/5.6 ED-IF AIS - Both are noticeably sharper at several meters than they are at infinity (where they are still quite good)
My 135/2 AIS seems to be the same at any distance as well as my 135/3.5 AIS, 16/3.5AI, and 45/2.8P.

Thanks everyone on the pano comments. Heh yes itís not New Jersey, but from the line in Tweeter and the Monkey Man - Traveling Wilburys
Someplace in Rahway Prison, they ran out of gas
I forgot to get some on the way to work Ö and drove right after to the location, with needle hovering just above empty
Didnít have the time to stop by for any as the sun was already setting

georg, vampiress using smartphone is a perfect moment. I guess technology is so pervasive in our lives right now, probably accessing some location-based blood-finding app

Nice photos.. Especially with the 28mm AIS., Didnt know it focuses this close. I used to have a 28mm E Series once and was not too thrilled with that and sold it.

Thank's
with a close-focus distance of 7 inches (0.6 ft), or 20 cm. it's a great lens for close up

Each year I collect all my MF Nikkor images and throw them into one place:

That was all for 2013 . . . .

It's fun to look back on all the images you've taken!

Here's some more night shots in Cairns

It's been quite a while since I've posted here, but I took the 500 f4-p out a few weeks ago and took some bird shots. I was surprised to see so much activity on the iced-over Inner Harbor.

By the way, great shots everyone.
