Interesting - on the monitor I now see a couple of "hot" pixels (or dust spots) that I didn't see despite editing at 100%. Too lazy to fix

Reagan - Thanks for the compliments and the D700 seems to be a natural for the MF lenses we own.

Thanks to Scott, Peter, Jay and Ray. Leighton, there is a tranquility to your shots lately, very nice.

The "double starburst" was lucky, didn't know it was there until I downloaded. Here is a P-51C "Mustang" that had a ladies head in it just above the leading edge of the wing that I didn't see until I got home. Well "she gone now" - D#$ng%ed tourists!

It's good to be back. Unfortunately I fear it will be short lived. I used the camera for under an hour yesterday and slipped one of the disk's in my neck/shoulder area. This was just holding the camera in my hands, strap was used for less than 10 minutes, with the lightest lens I have (the 50/1.8E pancake) and no grip. I was afraid of this, I have been testing out many different straps to no avail. The camera is just too heavy.

Did you know Ken, that a modified Mustang almost broke the sound barrier?

Around this time of year, Barbara and I like to visit a nursery in the next town over. It's a lot of fun walking around in their greenhouse because of all the color. Very welcoming this time of year. Took these with the 55mm f2.8 micro.

Wow, Leighton, the "Millmont" looks really 3D-like. The second Bromeliad is very nicely captured too, but the three-dimensionality of the Millmont makes this shot my fav from your fine set.

Peter, wow, the sky is on fire at "Shepherd's Delight"!

Reagan, I really like your work with the 28/2 Ai and the D700! The composition of the train-shot is perfect. Love the rendering of the 28/2 Ai at wider apertures - you'll make good use of it.

Leighton, "Blowing Snow" is a really fine photograph. Love the tones and your framing. The "big sky" works great.

Lestor, I like especially the first two shots from your second set (couple and bench solo). The B&W-tunnel looks scary, well worth a shot. Got the tiny 100/2.8 Series-E today, but had no chance to try it out.

Andy, very nice parrot-portrait!

Ray, it's great to see you're havin really fun with the 55/1.2 Love your bokeh-play with it. The candle is completely awesome - excellent mixture of colors and the razor-thin DoF is the icing on the cake.

Mihai, the abandoned casino is an outstanding subject and I like your take on it a lot. Looks like a perfect location for a movie. Thanks for sharing your thoughts/impressions about the 5200.

Scott, the barn-pictures are really beautifully captured. B&W works extremely well here. Wish we could get some snow here too…



Sorry, I've missed some great postings and pictures.

A quick walking-by-snap taken some days ago with the 24/2 Ai at f/2.8 and the D3s.

Ziegenmarkt von georgsfoto auf Flickr
The 24/2 Ai is really soft at the borders at f/2.8, but somehow I like the rendering of this Nikkor.
D3s - ISO12.800 - 1/25sec and f/2.8 - Kodak T-Max 3200-preset, not SilverEfex this time ;-)

Found a nice guide to some of the Nikon screw-in, snap-in, lens hoods:

http://www.nikonlinks.com/Third-Party/Lens-Hoods_Rick-Housh.htm

I just bought 3 different HS Nikon lens hoods for some of my other lenses and found this site invaluable because it has detailed dimensions of the hoods.

Pete Nice red to that sunset.
Leighton Very rich colors to the flowers.
Georg The corners look super soft, it works nicely in that picture.
Ken Nice shot of a very reflective plane.
John Here is a website that generates a paper lens hood, www.lenshoods.co.uk/
Kevin Thanks for the zoom creep link. Sure hope you can work something out with your equipment!

You're welcome Jay.

I sent a note to my doctor about my issues and he said I just need to carry less weight overall. I have tried a bunch of different straps to no avail. Heck, I even tried a totally custom one based off of a pistol shoulder holster. It did the best overall, but my main trouble spot is the vertebrae just below my shoulder blades. I have another trouble spot with the vertebrae that sits on top of my pelvis. So, pretty much screwed on nearly all the different straps out there. Looks like I have to go lighter in weight.

This is a problem I have had all my life. I will be posting most of my gear probably later this week. If you see anything in my profile that you like, shoot me a PM. Most of my stuff is in user condition, not shelf condition. Pricing will be according to condition.

Thanks. I will be keeping a few things, mainly stuff I can use on Harold (my Nikkormat FTn). Anything more modern will go. I will be keeping my Series E 50/1.8 as well. The lens and I have a long history and it is what allowed me to post here. Most of my lenses will be under $150. I have monopods, tripods, flash, filters...

Sorry to hear that Kevin, have you thought about mirrorless or 4/3 or whatever ?

Great shots from Leighton, Oosty, Reagan etc.

Thanks for comments on the Rainbow Lorie, here's another showing some of the colour of the underparts. They are indeed well named ! AND the undersides if their wings are red.
Crazy little fellas !

and a few more street ones...

Saw the guy on the left first but he turned his back to talk to the other guy. Had to add vignette and contrast as there was a big misty white stripe down the left side of the pic for some reason but think it works.

I hope this guy isn't with the Russian Mafia ! I think he owns a kebab shop on the esplanade and heard his accent earlier so probably greek/turkish?

Andy, I had a Fuji XE1 for a while and loved it. I didn't use any native glass, the MF lenses I did use were cumbersome. At the time I wanted to shoot nikon again and had access to nearly every strap out there so I traded the Fuji for the D7000. I tried 10 different styles of straps with no luck. The last one I tried was custom made for me and still caused issues. The Fuji is what I am going to go back to. I really enjoyed it, but I will use Fuji glass instead of Nikon. I am going to keep a lens or two that I will periodically use, but their purpose will mainly be for Harold.
