Leighton, the winter fields scene is terrific. I know the feeling about clearing snow only to get up the next morning and find it was all for naught.

Reagan, lovely water reflections.

Peter, wonderful fiery sunset.

Ken, what's not to like about the P-51.

Kevin, sorry to hear about your neck. I know this might cramp your style, but have you considered working from a tripod?


Thank you again for the comments.

Some full sun! I posted this same scene awhile back during a snowsquall. This time the sun makes its presence felt. The horses still decided to stay in the barn. Taken with the 25-50 f4.

I often use one. But it is more weight to carry.

Great work everyone, thanks for the kind comment.

Two more with crops, San Juan Capistrano, 15mm 3.5 ais, D800 the performance to me is outstanding, awesome, my standards must be low.

crop 100%, I focused too close, resulting in a very nice but not top photo, compare with the one below and its crops.

Against the sun with focusing totally nailed.

Kevin - that's really bad luck. I can sense your extreme frustration having looked forward to getting back to your Nikon gear. Without being facetious is the Df a possibility? The cost is horrific but it's supposed to be the lightest DSLR ever. Or alternately the Nikon 1 series which Laura used so well with MF glass? Whatever happens I hope that you stay with our group and contribute your experience. Good luck.

Leighton, Jay, Georg, Scott - thanks.

Georg - lovely mono of the Zingmarkt

Andy - the f5.6 image is terrific. Very sharp indeed. I know there is a lot to be said for using lenses wide open but I think that should be dictated by the subject. IMO it is distracting in portraits, pics of dogs etc, to have only a part of the face in focus and the rest blurred. As you know we are taught to focus on the eye but too often the nose which is generally in the foreground looks unnatural. On a couple of my lenses 5.6 - 8.0 seems to be the sweet spot and this may be the case with the 180 also. Nice series.

Scott - I love the red barn. The sunshine must have been a shock to your system.

Sar - really nice images. If you're carrying that lens around you don't need gym work 2.5 Kg !

Chin - all your latest posts are of the usual high quality. Loved the house nad like the shrine.

Rafael -the images from San Juan Capistrano are really good. Both achieve what the lens is designed to do. From a viewers perspective the width and DOF are what matters. I know you're a perfectionist but if you really wanted an image of the ladies, or for that matter the Koi, I'm sure ( )somewhere in your modest collection there's an appropriate lens!

Sorry to hear about this Kevin.

Only suggestion I can offer is maybe one of the smaller DX Nikons, or even get hold of an older film one.

Another thought is a rolling bag.

He's got one - Harold is the Nikkormat
I don't know if the Nikon Ones are an option. I think Laura has one.

Thanks for the comments and likes!

Andy - I have really liked the images of the Rainbow Lorries. Just beautiful birds.

Scott - Very clear and crisp shot of the barn. I once considered this lens but never acted on it. Perhaps I need to give it another look. Seems it would make a fine pairing with the 50-135mm. How close can you get at the wide end?

Sar - Good to see you again, love both of your street shots.

Chin - There's something about the simplicity and lines that I really like with your image.

Kevin, bummer on the ongoing disc issues. Yes, the V1 is definitely a lighter camera and does well with MF lenses, you'll need the FT-1 to adapt the lenses to CX mount.

Peter, your point is clear and for most uses both photos are great, but I wanted to show the maximum capability of this lens to bring out detail, plus I like to print very large, 20*30 inches or more, where the difference can be seen. I love walking my eyes around a huge detailed print.

+1 Kevin, sorry for your pain, I used to think a few ounces more or less do not matter and that people exaggerated the need for a light camera, until I developed carpal tunnel from working at the computer 10 hours a day, and was forced to use a monopod to hold the camera. Maybe this is a solution for you too, do not carry the camera around your neck, place it atop a high quality light monopod, use it as a walking stick and presto! your camera is on it ready to go any time,
