Laura, I'll second that opinion of the 25-50 f4. Nice lens.


+2; at 4.0 the 25-50mm is nothing to write home about, at 5.6 it is excellent on par with most fixed primes, at 8.0 it is perhaps my sharpest lens on the D800.

Ray, nice work with that 1.2. Looks like new lenses really get your engine going. One a month souds about right, 135 next?

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

Thanks Steve, I think we're stuck in a time warp or something!

Another remnant from the past, this in the window of the garage next door to the store.

A few from this morning's cold hike up Mt. Si.
I was going to take my m43 gear to save on weight, but I decided I needed to pay penance for not getting a hike or run in last weekend.

More to come later (after a nap I suppose).

Howdy All,

It's been awhile since I posted here, but I have been keeping up on all the beautiful photos on this thread. Sorry I haven't commented much; I usually express my admiration with the LIKE button.

Here are a couple from a party Friday night. I got bored with the activity, so out with the camera to capture lighting and composition. The only lenses I had with me were my 3.5 and 4.0, so I did the best I could. However, I really liked the quality and sharpness, despite the poor conditions.

The first is my son, Marcus, in "hardly any available light" with my Micro-Nikkor 55 3.5, wide open, handheld, 1/30 @ 2500 ISO



The second is a portrait of my wife, Marguerite, same lens, exposure and low lighting.

Hello Mishu01 and thank you for your comments on my photos. Your B & W conversions are stunning! I'm very glad I found this thread. So many beautiful photos and talented photographers.

My name is Greg. I'll try to remember and include it with my postings in the future.

Although I learned photography back in the days of Kodachrome and Tri-X pan, when it comes to digital and even autofocus, I consider myself to be very much a newbie and so your comment on the D300 has made me curious. It's my first serious DSLR and so I don't

Hello Greg! It's a good idea to edit your FM profile in order to add your name. This way will help people remember easier you. This is a holy, high recommended tradition of the forefathers of this thread BTW my name is Mihai.

Regarding D300 - it is a wonderful camera. I liked best it's size, controls and functionality. A real machine gun. What I disliked was the low like "inability" of its sensor. I'm a sucker for low light photography and I was unable to manage the noise at acceptable levels. You seem to do much better than me, at least in the pictures you posted.

Ah... oh... "Sunset on Lac Qui Parle Lake" is a magnificent image! Congrats!

Mihai - ohh, I love your snow-shots! Apart from the impressive subject I really like your processing. It makes your neighborhood look a bit like the "Sin-City" (no offense meant, of course - that's one of my favorite movies, not for it's content, rather for it's look).
Hope you and your friends/family are coming safe and warm through the winter.



Georg, you are to kind to me! Thank you! Regarding "Sin-City" - you made my day! I'll tell this to all my friends locally and I am sure they will fully agree that it is a very inspired name!
Good job on the theater picture!

Ken, thanks sir! I love your images... and I wish to visit that "enoteca" especially during this season

Rafael, please stop these porn glass images... BTW your garden pictures are among the best you ever posted in this thread. While I'm not a fan of UWA perspective I think you managed that way to get great images with 15mm lens despite the perspective.

Leighton, I'll do it! I like more the sky in the second picture. Great color!

Chin, I like that sea food meal. Looks very good, both from aesthetic part and from my stomach perspective I'm right now on a severe diet so I am salivating But "on the catwalk" is really a very good image, truly a keeper. I love the expression of the person...

Samy, a nice image of a monumental building! I love to see your Church building series as a sucker for this kind of images. Yeah... I wish to NOT wished before the snow...

Scott, thanks sir!

Steve, I like a lot the Chinese Lanterns picture!

Buddy, that green tree picture looks top notch!

John, a great set as always. Hard to decide but my favorite is the first one. I love that path... This could be the cover for a good book!

Ray, I like the snow on these red little fruits. Our snow looks ugly, at least here in the Sin-City where I live Friends know why

Larry, fine portraits of your son & wife!

Should you want your background to melt into pure color reach for a really long nikkon focused close on extenders, this is from the 400mm 3.5 ais TC300, D800.

53.33333333333333333333333......... times the magnification of the 15mm at the same distances.

My longing is not for stoicism, although there is great wisdom in Marco Aurelio: " This is the chief thing: Be not perturbed, for all things are according to the nature of the universal; and in a little time thou wilt be nobody and nowhere, like Hadrianus and Augustus. In the next place, having fixed thy eyes steadily on thy business, look at it, and at the same time remembering that it is thy duty to be a good man, and what man's nature demands, do that without turning aside; and speak as it seems to thee most just, only let it be with a good disposition and with modesty and without hypocrisy."

My longing is for a time simpler, the life of Haciendas I knew growing up, manned by enterprising, friendly people; self sufficient, some accessible by beast of burden only. A life simple and full of daily purpose, communal activity, and tired restful nights.

Ray - thank you. Great start with your new "baby"

Buddy - a beautiful dog.

Mihai -very nice snow shots.

Ken - thanks. Charleston images are well captured.

Georg - I like both the "trailer" pics.

Rafael - you perseverance with the 15 mm certainly paid off. Well done.

Leighton - I preferred the colour version of the "village". Cute general store though and a fabulous image of the stove!

Samy - Thank you. You'll be able to guide tourists round Baltimore soon! More great pics.

John - I really like the 1st image with the log steps.

Raymond - both snow shots are gorgeous.

Larry - very nice portraits.

Steve - two beauties.

Jose - more good storm pics.

Leighton - please say "happy birthday" to Barbara from me. Lovely portrait.
