Nice to see this thread working...

More MF lenses in more photographers' hands translates into more photos and more conversation on this thread... kit building is FOREVER...

Well done David, but don't forget the lens will need to be modified unless you plan on adding a Df to you kit... which is not a bad idea...

Thanks Curtis! I think I'll get John White to modify the lens while I'm here in North America. These UWA's just don't seem to come up for auction very often in Oz, so I jumped on it. I might very well pick up a DF if I find a used one with low mileage, but will convert the lens anyway, as this may be down the line.

Cheers for now,
David

Thanks Ray! I just phoned KEH and purchased this UWA.... I've been looking for one for ages!

So glad I could help. I know that you will love it I had an original AI kit for that lens but sold it to Jose for his. I think it was the last one in the USA

There is a guy that I know that still has a bunch of the AI kits for various different MF lenses. His name is Sover Wong. You can Google him and find his contact info. He may have more.

Pardon the noobness... I am curious to why this needs to be converted it says F mount and aren't the d700 and d7000 fmounts?

They are all F-Mounts. However, the lenses need to be either converted to AI-Spec or use a DF that can flip the indexing tab out of the way. The autoindexing tab can be broken if you use a Non-AI lens on a body that uses AI coupling.

I am flying to the Azores in 10 hours (at 8 am WET). Took with me the D610, 24/2.8 Ai, 35/1.4 AIS, 85/1.4 AIS and a tripod. My gear weights more than the clothes I take for 2 weeks traveling through 5 islands

24/2.8 Ai

I need to catch up later on tonight, but here's a few from today's hot, hot, hot hike (though there was a constant breeze and no bugs). This area had been burned 20 years ago or so, so there are still lots of burned out/dead trees everywhere.

Took the 16/3.5, 20/2.8D, 45/2.8P, & 90/3.5 CV.

A few from the 16 and 45 . . . .

I only took two MF lenses to Hawaii. The Noct - for Mauna Kea and the 105 ƒ/2.5 for fun. Only used the 105 once.

Here is a sunset at Kona on the Big Island shot with the 105.

D700 - Nikkor 105mm ƒ/2.5 AIS - ISO 1600 (yeah I know) - 1/8000sec - ƒ/22 - tripod.

While I'm waiting for my 16mm f3.5 lens, I visited Ball's Bridge - one of the oldest pin connected, wrought iron bridges in Canada today... recently restored, it's still in use, although with weight restrictions... The image was acquired with the 50-135mm f3.5 ai's "Leighton Lens"...

Cheers and good light,
David

John, shots 3 and 5 just knock me out. The D800 really seems to love that 16mm!

I shot this a couple evenings ago. Don't think I have ever seen Grand Traverse Bay become a complete mirror to the sky. Usually there is some wind ripples off shore a way. Also, strange was the complete silence...no cars, bugs, boats, people sounds...nothing.
