Lovely serendipity... I just checked the auction I'd linked to and the price has now exceeded the Buy It Now price. It amazes me that no one was willing to spend $20 for this set of tubes. I notice that above the set you bought for the lovely price of ten pounds, there is a set listed for fifty...

Congratulations on your purchase... Yes, it helps to know the market but it also helps to be decisive and act when a deal comes along.

Nuno, I'd encourage you to include shooting information with photos you post so that folks can consider the particular lens you're using. Since we're having a conversation about these wonderful manual focus Nikon lenses, it helps to know what is being used at a given moment. Very sweet photo...

Just this one time I forgot. Already edited the post.

It was the 85/2 Ai with PN-11.

Perfect... that is excellent work with a long extension tube... tough grabbing focus with that setup. Nice work!

Thank you!

I am still young so I have no excuse to misfocus, even when shooting hand held like I did for this photo

I was thinking about buying some tubes for quite sometime now. I could not find the buy it now price on the auction you listed so I bid for it. Total of $25 including shipping . Will let you know how they look once I get them.

Thanks for the link :-)

Well said and a valuable contribution. I agree the 28 f/2 AI-s is a step up from its slower companion. I found the extra stop valuable when shooting in the underground cisterns in Istanbul. It was also a wonderful walk around lens.


Thanks James (Basilisk) and Curtis for the discussion on the 28 f/2 AIS and the 28 /f2.8 AIS. Also nice shot with the f/2.

So now I'm also considering the (gasp) 28 f/1.8G in addition to the two AIS 28's. At least I've decided on 28!

What would you guys think about spending a little more for a late copy S/N 9XXXXXX 28 f/2.8 vs. an older example of a 2.8 or 2.0? Is it worth getting the SIC coating on the 28 f/2 (SN 6134XX and later)?

I haven't post much lately. Took a quick pano (2 shots) from inside looking out toward the Ohio river from Ohio side. The other side is Kentucky.

20mm f3.5. Needs cleaning up but this will do for now. I am still lurking

Night-time close-focus shot with the 28mm/2.8 ais, wide open. (Yes, I was lying on the ground at about 20 centimeters from the frog!)

Acquired a 100-300mm F5.6 ais, a lens that doesn't show up on this thread very often. I think it is very decent. Like the VR 70-300 AF(yikes! ;-) ) version, I think you should avoid going beyond 270 mm.

Great to see you Paul and those are some very nice photos !!

Beautiful shot Chuong and I have missed seeing your posts lately.

CurtisBilly not to throw a wrench into your gears but have you considered the 24mm 2.8 AIS. It is very sharp across the frame. Here's a couple of samples taken Weds.

Those are just public service announcements...
