JD, very nice work with the 50-135. You need to use it more.

And Steve is right about the 80-200 4.5 being better than the f4. Just make sure it has the square baffle on the aperture end.

Thanks Rafael.

You use that 8mm very well, love the sunset especially.


Thank you Leighton, as an engineer trained in optics and imaging algorithms it is easy for my head to wrap itself in a circle.

Note that the sunset is an illusion as stated, the photo is real, the cloud colors are not, I made those.

Got an hour in the botanical gardens yesterday between drop offs and pick ups (3 teenagers in the household !)

Took the 28/2.8 ais and 55/3.5 ais. Great thing about using these lenses as everybody knows - 1 on the camera, 1 in your pocket, and that was a pair of what they call "stubbys" here, a small pair of shorts !

Here's my attempt at some lens porn.

Here is currently my main MF Kit: Though I only take one of either the 500/4 or 200/2 and most often neither. The 135/2.8 is often substituted or left out now that I have the 180.

Taken with the 35/2.0 "O" lens

Back Center Zooms. front 35-70/3.5, left 80-200/4.5, right 50-135/3.5

One more... "Pretty Colors and Shiny Things", 300/4.5 wide-open again. I had this lens Ai converted at Mora camera in DC years ago. The owner really liked it, was kept in near-mint condition. Lots of use at airshows and wetlands. But it never got banged up.

Thanks Leighton, I plan to use the 50-135 3.5 much more. It is sharp and has nice color, contrast and good bokeh. My 80-200 4.5 does have the square baffle, I think I heard a few here say that was the one to get.

Thanks for the comments and likes on my pictures all.

Some great shots tonight.

JD

Andy, love the the set, but the first two are my favorites! And yes, that's one of the advantages of these MF lenses, small compared to their AF counterparts.

Welcome Brian, good to see another Virginian on here! Looking forward to seeing more from your Df.

BTW, how did the 300 feel (balance wise) on it?

This is a heavy lens- classic brass and glass, and is of course front heavy- like it is on the F and F2. I got used to supporting it around the lens' tripod mount a long time ago.

The lens that perfectly balances this camera is the 55/1.2. I'll pay more attention as more lenses get used. Have not tried the 500/8 and Vivitar 600/8 Series 1 on it yet.

Great last few pages of images!

The wonderful night time images from several of you folks have been inspiring me to try my hand at night scenery.

Here's a few from Baltimore, all taken with the 28 3.5 PC. As usual the shifted images show up its weakness near the top, but this is such a fun lens I don't mind its asymmetrical approach to sharpness

BTW, I had a bagful of lenses, the 14-24, the 55 1.2 S and the 90mm f2 Summicron, and ended up only using the 28 3.5 PC. Maybe I should get the hint and not have more than two at a time. Less wear and tear on the body

Jay that beautifully lit up church with the 16 fisheye is wonderful!

Chin your nightscapes look like they belong in a glossy travel book in bookstores.

Jose, enjoyed the plant with the great 105 2.5 P lens!

Ronny, great look at the graffiti! And superb focus and capture of that bee in flight.

John, looks like a personal copter for one! Something you would land and takeoff from your front lawn?

JD, terrific pelican images. That streched jaw is quite a unique behavior. Maybe Jose may have some insight on why a pelican does that weird stretch. And super capture of that gull in flight. I am vicariously enjoying the 500 F4 P through your pics since mine spends way too much time enclosed in its case And btw, terrific image of your Nikkor collection.

Steve, wonderful architectures and colours! I really liked the gate to the wholesale fish market.

Andy, really enjoyed the HDRs, especially the old Bedford truck. And quite a cute kitten under the Xmas tree. And if you have only browsed up to 300 + pages you got a long ways to go yet Your work with the 28 2.8 and the 55 3.5 micro is super!

Luc, delicious bokeh and colors with the Df/50 1.2 AIS combo!!!

Scott, I like both versions of your retake of the church. Very nice!

Ray (Ohio), very sweet image of the tree in the superbly lit snow at dawn. Really captures the mood at the scene.

Don, those suspense book covers never fail!

Peter (Knysna), very interesting fruit of that invasive plant in your area.

Jeff, haven't seen much from you lately but really enjoyed the foggy scene!

And that's right Leighton, haven't seen much from Georg also lately.

Rafael, that sky with the 8mm is superb. Capturing the whole sky with a huge part of the light spectrum is quite some thing! Beautiful lens and must require quite a lot of care in handling with that huge front element out there.

Just got to FL last night. Woke up early this morning early due to 1hr time difference. I stepped outside and saw these flying around. Ugly bird but good enough for me to use my 600mm f5.6












And this one came so close. This is the entire frame. It was accidentally in focus

Don, I love your work. Really like the composition in this one. My personal preference is for the sepia toned or gray toned images vs the blue cast in this one. Great work!!
