Thanks Ken I might just take you up on that. I got a PM from Jay "HCE HCE" and he will be here arriving perhaps Sunday. I get my camera back on Monday so we should plan a photo get together for next week for the Florida Contingent?

Ken you can only be a proper petrol head if you have had an Alfa .....

So Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear says ...... Great programme ......

What a job to have .... anyone who doesn't know about it .... catch it on YouTube or some other TV channel ...

It's almost as good as using Nikon MF lenses .....

Hey guys,

I'm thinking of my kit and wanted to get some input from y'all on your favorite FL's. In my poll, you only have the choice of three: 28mm, 35mm and 50mm. Please take a second and vote, thanks!

I voted for the 35mm it's my favorite on full frame. The 24mm was my favorite on crop

Thanks Ray. The reason I'm asking is I'm thinking about selling my 50/1.2 and getting the 35/1.4. I hardly ever use the 50, mainly because I have it covered with my 50-135 and my 55/2.8 macro. I think I'd use the 35mm quite a bit at the market this year.

I agree with you completely. The 35 is quite useful on full frame.

Hi gang, just back from a spring-break ski trip in the eastern Sierra with the family. Some great photos posted during the week. Thanks for the comments on the pelicans shot.

Georg, wonderful framing on the "Archives" and "Beach" shots. Very nice work with the 24/2. Love the humorous dome with "legs" shot.

Ken, you've been posting some very fine shots lately. The sepia toned photo of "FIFI" is terrific.

Lestor, very nice Jubelpark images. I really like the b&w's.

Ram, beautiful Everglades set.

Chuong, terrific portrait.

Rafael, really like the corvette at dusk and the duo in front of the bougainvillea.

Kevin, beautiful bokeh set.

David, nice composition on the "Back Beach" shot.

Jay, really like the three dimensional quality to the "Wukoki" shot.

Jose, love the Burrowing Owl, Great Kiskadee and Praying Mantis shots.

Leighton, wonderful chair, wave clouds and red barn images.

Philippe, terrific concept and framing on the "United Colors" shot.

Gregg, very nice trains, and I enjoyed your Mojave set.

Andy, love your "Van Gogh."

Samy, beautiful stained glass and I really like the Ultramax set. The brick path in front of the parking structure was a great find.

Buddy, terrific spider set.

Reagan, great pooch portrait with the 135/2.

Steve, beautiful California images.

Scott, outstanding snow shots. You're lucky. I had to drive seven hours to be in a blizzard.

Peter, really like the shots from your trip, especially the folded mountains.

Chin, very nice subtle tones on "only love." The kite skater is excellent.

Ronny, great action shots of Nitro. I really like the b&w's. I'm trying to figure out why your MF focusing is better than mine with AF.

Curtis, beautiful flowers, and I really like the look of the b&w antlers.

John, the layered pano has a great look.

Laura, very cool 16mm shot of the Stratos suit.

Nancy, beautiful bokeh shots.

A couple recent edits. The first two are of my youngest. That evening was the "Father-Daughter Dance" in cowboy/cowgirl theme. The dance was kind of a bust, they played two country songs the whole night and the girl that tried to teach some line dancing, well, she tried to teach two very complicated dances...didn't go well.

The shots of my daughter are with the 55/1.2. First shot I told her to play a bit as I was "setting up". Lies I tell you! I wanted to get her playing. Oh, and it was pretty solid wind at around 15-20mph.

If you go back enough in this thread, you will see an early shot of her when she just started to play. She loves her little guitar, she calls it Scarlet.

Lastly was an attempt at birding. I don't have a long MF Nikkon, so I used the Series E 75-150 at 150.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I think you should keep your 28 it is almost identical to the 35 FL
I used a zoom and set the zoom at 28 and then 35 and shot quite a few images with both, not much difference
So I guess you are going to have a lens selloff yourself
First the 50 and then you will sell the 28 when you see there is not much difference between 28 and 35

Oh, I'm keeping the 28, one of my favorites! I'm thinking of letting the 50/1.2 as I don't use it very often, and I already have that range covered by a couple of lenses. As I said in the other thread, I'm thinking that the 35mm FL range would be ideal at the market.

Thanks, Leighton, I was quite sure you would ask That's a large asparagus/sparrowgrass-field.
Tried the 400/3.5 IF-ED for a staged portrait of the very friendly farmer:

110 rows of asparagus - 400/3.5 IF-ED at f/5.6, his posture could be better (my fault). The foil-roll pictured in the other shot is used to "pre-heat" the "earthed up" fields.
The machine used to bring out the many miles of heavy foil should have been my subject, but it was late and I had to improvise a portrait-shoot.
