You do know, Samy, that there are some gray Nikon lenses as well Looks odd as can be, too.

Not long enough of a tele, but hopefully one can barely make out the Canon photographer on the opposite bank.

Beautiful photos. Leighton now that you have come to your senses on the 50mm 1.2, here are some photos from your next lens the 135mm F2. I was inspired by Rafael to take this lens to the monthly auto show here in town.

Excuse my infrequent posting, but congratulations to all those expecting soon! In the same vein, a photo taken of Margot today, wide open with the 50mm f/1.2 AI-s.

Scott, marvelous angles and composition! And Swedish colors

Leighton, the veggies are glad to model for you and happy you kept the 50 1.2!

Jose, very nice testing of the 25-50 with the different CPU entries. I am at a loss why the entry would change exposure for this lens. And your obsolete equipment shots are wonderful!

Philippe, nice 1842 statue. And what you did with that in-focus man with the 105 2.5 was superb even by your own standards!!!

Rafael, you and the other folks here have really been showcasing the 400 3.5. The 400 5.6 takes the 1.4 TC
...Show more

Samy, the 400mm 3.5 with the TC14B, or the TC 301 will focus with the dot quite well. With the TC16a it will AF just fine. With the TC301 plus the TC201 or even more converters you are into live view focusing only.

Thanks for your comments on the B&W horse portrait. I also enjoyed a few shots with the 16mm f3.5 AI. It's been sitting in the case for a while. I didn't have any good subject to use it with. It's a great lens and a keeper for me.

Scott, the photo looks as though it was taken with a tilt-shift lens. If you captured that without requiring some fancy footwork in post processing, I want to give kudos both to you AND to that lens. I know it is a fine lens but this is insanely clean. Of course, knowing your acuity when it comes to lines, I wouldn't put it above you to play with a bit of perspective on this... Very nice photos with the angles, lines and brilliant colors.


Thank you Curtis. I did make a slight perspective correction. Other than that, added some clarity, lightened some shadows, and added a bit of sharpening. All the credit must go to this fine lens.

Curtis, love the Lotus flowers. The reflections in the second image are great.

Chuong, nice work with the 16mm fisheye. I agree it is a keeper lens.

Ray, great car series.

Nice to know you're lurking Reagan. Not surprised you comments on Ray's recent set, which is OUTSTANDING. We all know he's trying to make Leighton suffer...

I'm with you about not picking up the camera much at the moment. It is important that we listen to our muse. Nothing wrong with simply appreciating all the wonderful work that comes through this thread.

Thanks Scott. It is a person with a discerning eye who is willing to use some of the tools buried a bit more deeply in my photo processing programs, including perspective. A friend was interested in my shooting her quite elegant home and though I don't have a tilt shift lens, I knew with a bit of careful post processing I could give her some decent photos. She told me later she liked the set I did better than the set done by a pro who was hired by the architect for a spread in some magazine. I knew my friend moved out for a couple of days so they could shoot the home at all hours. Honestly, they did much more dramatic work than I did, but I think I captured what was most important to my friend. The perspective tool got a fair amount of work on that set...


Shot with the 28 f/2 AI-s.

Need to show you the axial or longitudinal chromatic aberration of the 135mm 2.0

It is bad up close at 2.0. but easy to fix.

I assume you mean physically short?

there's the 180 f2.8 which is pretty compact...






200mm f4






300mm f4.5

Haven't been on much, my computer lost a hard drive. Thankfully I was able to recover the data off the drive. It has given me the opportunity to play around a bit. Have one smaller drive running Linux and another drive with Windows 7. I am hoping to see if I can do viable photo editing in Linux, using free tools. I will have Windows as a backup.

Lock 30. Taken with the 25-50 f4 Ai @ f16 using the "new" non-cpu entry. The mid-morning light was not very flattering, but I like the contrast and depth field sharpness. Thanks for looking.
Scott


Scott, this does show off the sharpness and contrast of this fine zoom. I almost bought this one sometime ago, but settled on the 28-50mm f3.5 AIS. Which I ended up selling to Reagan. The only MF Zoom I have now ( and probably will ever have) is the 50-135 as you are well aware.

Ray, these are truly outstanding. The second one is really nice due to the 3D effect, and I just love the hood ornament dissolving into bokeh land. Well done my friend!

Rafael, thanks for the heads up. You're right though, easy to fix in post if needed.
