Thanks Jay! Quite a bit more to explore in Bawlmer yet

Chuong, great pics of the vulture with that monster lens! And that's the most feather detail on a vulture I have come across. I believe an example of a turkey vulture.

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

Baltimore's Washington Monument lit up for the season.

Samy, I like this night series a lot. Especially the first one of the Washington monument. I did not know Baltimore had a Washington monument.

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

Chuong, nice work with the long tele. Were these hand held or tripod? Since you are in FL, keep an eye out for Ray and Reagan.

Scott- They are all handheld.
I am in Panama City though. Quite a distance from Ray and Reagan.

Nice work. You have a steady hand.

Probably just as well the three of you do not get together. Who knows what kind of buying/selling/trading would go on.

Thanks guys
Rafael, I wanted the reds of trees on the far left where the setting sun was hitting it
But also some semblance of a foreground boat
The 28 wasn't wide enough naturally, as I was standing on the bridge so I fired off a quick pano
Liked that the 'mini jetty' and queue leads in from the right, unintended of course

You should see the rest of the church. Beautiful gothic architecture. I guess now I'll need to find an excuse to head to that neighborhood and take a picture for posting!

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


Interesting comment Leighton - I only have the f4 and I can find no fault with it at any focal length. If the 4.5 is better I'd be interested to know in which way.

Peter, to be perfectly honest, I can't really say having never used the f4. I'm going by what others (including BR) has said about the two of them. Bjorn did say that flaring and ghosting were worse on the f4. You'd probably be hard pressed to see the difference. Doesn't really matter as you can get either one of them for under a hundred bucks.

In fact, I'd be willing to sell mine if anyone is interested, just PM me.

Hi there,
nice to see things are running in a smooth manner at my favorite FM-thread! Sorry, I have the yearly X-mas-blues and grieve over my photography (especially the paper-related stuff).
Anyway, I still haven't sold my MF-Nikkor's and can share some fresh shots with it.
Went to a bush-league hockey-game this evening and tried the 135/2 Ais for some shots. To be honest - I prefer AF-lenses for team-sports, my keeper-rate is just much higher.
With AF I can concentrate on action and framing, tasks that are secondary when I put my focus on manual-focusing ;-)


D700 at ISO6400, 135/2 Ais at about f/2.2 or 2.5, 1/500sec. - a better shot of those players was out of focus


technical specs like above, cropped a good bit, maybe my best MF-shot from today

and now for something completely different:

a still-life (pardon) from the local pathology, D3s and PC-E 45/2.8

Nice to see you Georg! I really like the last one.

Are you thinking about selling your lenses?

Couple of quick questions:

1) Is this a good guy to send the lenses to for conversion? http://www.aiconversions.com/index.html

2) Are there any of these lenses I should not bother sending? I've read the 300mm is lousy, but I'm still curious to shoot with it I have a 50 1.4 Nikkor S, 135 2.8 Nikkor Q, 200 f4 Nikkor Q, and a 300 4.5 Nikkor P - the very first one.

Thank you!!!

1. Jon is great!
2. I can't say for the 300, but the rest I have used and like them all. The 135 Q was my favorite lens.

A few from yesterday. Again either 28/2.8 or 55/3.5 micro

Had a wander round the port area of Cairns. As it was saturday the boat repair yards were mostly shut but an open gate presented itself !

Also, just unexpectedly won a 180/2.8 ED on ebay for $279 Turns out I was the only bidder.

So that's - OUT - 300/f4 afs, 1.7TC and IN - 80-200AF D 2.8, 135/2.5 and 180.28ED. Need the AF for portraits, weddings etc.

Andy, congrats on the 180 win! And I really like the first one of the line of trawlers.

Here's one with the 28 f2 N. Washington DC at night.
