Thanks Scott!

Roberto, yea sorry, I'm glad you caught the post by Reagan.

Andy - Really nice macros. I love the face of the guy in the third one. You're a very good all-around photographer. There's probably nothing you can't shoot!

Scott, Great old building to shoot. That 85 seems to be on your camera a lot, which for us is a good thing.

Ray terrific shots and am glad to have helped ... it wasn't my lens that got dropped in the punch was it? Yes, my buddy had loaned me a power chair that was over ten years old, that broke a gear in the axle from wear and tear and no way to fix it. The right thing to do and over his protests I traded it in on a younger used one and it is his to keep after I am through with it.

However that's not the news. Robin wasn't too happy with the D600 after seeing yours and decided she did not wan one. Instead she had no issue with my D800 and really liked the V1 with the Fx adapter. In the meantime I had an inquiry for my D800 that I turned down because she opted to sell off her D7000 and a couple of accompanying Dx lenses and put the money to my NEW Df.

Went to Marshall's and ordered it and hopefully will be there by the end of next week. Ordered the black on black which are a bit more scarce. We are now a Fx family with less lenses to pack and more lenses to share. The 18-200Dx on the V1 is a killer.

Tomorrow is the big day at the surgeon. It is something I sweat because decisions have to be made if the one bone is not yet healed as well as it needs to be.

Thanks to everyone for the likes and the comments and todays submission is a shutter speed test between a D700 with the 50-135 set on Ch and a bird. As you can see the bird won.

Ken, I bet you were shocked to see all those dust bunnies in your first two images. Melted right away in that last shot though.

I agree. It postponed my 135 purchase until the QC came into play. You will like new lens.

Thank you Leighton. These days my standard go to lenses (on my D7000) are the 20 F3.5, 35 f1.4, and the 85 f1.8 HC. Sometimes the 25-50 f4 pushes the two shorter ones out of the bag. I seem to be hooked on the 85. Not only is it fast, small, and sharp, but is very versatile and nice to hold and use. I do like the 50-135 that you do such nice work with. It is just a tad large for me as a carry around. I would like the zoom flexibility it offers though.

Haha ! thanks Leighton. You're familiar with the phrase "Jack of all trades, master of none" ?

The reality is that I get bored easily and flit from photography type to type and then the whole cycle renews !

Macro is always good as you can find bugs (and flowers of course) almost anywhere and I do love them. The detail, colours etc. most of which you can't even see with the naked eye is what keeps me going back.
Of course, being a farmer, you probably have a different feeling towards them

Beware that every copy that I've seen has the infinity focus far off from that marked on the focus ring. On both my copies true infinity is about half-way between the 5 and 2 meter mark. Most times I just put the focus point half way between 5 and 2 meters and set it to f/8 and all is good.


John,
very interesting. My copy appears to be in focus at the infinity stop, otherwise my Milky Way at f/3.5 wouldn't be as sharp as it is, but now I really need to double check. Perhaps I left some sharpness on the table with those shots. The f/4 night shots I took at the infinity setting are not significantly sharper, just a little less coma in the corners.

I know my 600/f4.0 isn't at infinity when you hit the mark on the focus scape, but that's normal for a long tele, just with temperature variations.

My first 16/3.5 was a factory AI'd version (that I sold to Curtis), but can't remember if it had the same characteristic. It could also be my mount on my d800 I suppose, but I see the same thing when using them on my A7R. Makes using the focus scale at distances less than infinity a challenge because the scale is really really off up close.
I'm curious to know what you find with your copy - is your copy a true AI version or is it a factory AI version?

Just an insight on this lens. When you go to pull the aperture ring off you will want the lens fully extended (to mfd) and you should make some sort of alignment mark on the ring and body. There is a long arm that reaches up into the lens body from the aperture ring. It fits into a tiny slot to work the aperture. It is difficult to get lined up right. If the lens isn't extended, won't get the aperture ring out. If you don't mark it's orientation, be prepared to take a long time to reassemble. My first one took me two hours to reassemble.

Thanks for getting back to me so quick. After studying some sites about AI'ing a lens, I think I'm going to do it myself. Who knows, this may lead to a whole new line of lenses to purchase.

Andy, I love those flowers.
Unfortunately, after a day of good weather ... Harsh light more suited for the beach, where we spend the day. I am now blessed with horrible clouds and gray sky.

It is a good idea to set the lens at minimum aperture before removing the bayonet as well.

John That Crystal Lake shot is magnificent!

This seller has way too low score for many to try dealing with him.
