I'm getting really good at manual focusing
Is it weird to get addicted to manual focusing? What's wrong with me? I've since acquired 2 more MFNG but the 105 2.5 AIS remains my favorite (so far!)

I love the first one Joseph and no, there's nothing wrong with you that we all haven't experienced. Using these old lenses, turning that ring as you watch the scene come in to focus, connects you to the image in a way that AF just can't do. Curtis likens it to a "religious experience".

Congrats on the new purchases. But watch out for that wallet!

BTW, I think I missed commenting on your last entry, but I loved the eyes of the driver looking at you in her mirror, well seen.

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

Wow ken that's great news. I am surprised that Robin didn't like the D600 because the size and controls are much the same as the D7000. Terrific that you were able to keep the D800 in your family and I know that she will love that camera. I can't wait to see your new DF camera!!!

My first panorama attempt with the 16mm f/3.5

I was completely unable to stitch these frames without first applying an adaptive wide angle filter, plus I had to drop the last 2 frames that completed the 360 view, I tried all modes, even Microsoft ICE, but the stitching results were rather avant-garde. I used a lot of overlap in these frames, 10 for a full circle, while 4 of them do complete the view fine. Stitching all 10 or just 4 was quite unsuccessful. Dropping the last two from the set and cropping off a little bit of imaginary Adobe mountains on the right side got me to this, which except for some fake clouds to fill a big hole up high is close to 320 or more degrees. I'll stick to lenses with less distortion for future panoramas.

View from Black Giant summit, Kings Canyon National Park. Bottom left is Le Conte Canyon where the John Muir Trail runs. Image center is the Ionian Basin, one of the most remote places in California, and the saddle under the big fat clouds on the right is Muir Pass where we came from that morning.

Thanks, now if I can actually get out with the MF lenses instead of taking the easy way out by bringing only the AF-S lenses.


For most of the folks who frequent this thread, AF lenses lose much of their appeal after we've enjoyed the experience of turning the focusing ring. Shooting with MF lenses requires a bit more engagement with the whole process. So, yes, take you camera and MF lenses for a spin and give us a report back. My guess is you'll enjoy yourself along the way...

Excellent buy Leighton, I was very tempted to buy that lens too, price was low and conditions super, but the needed conversion and the lack of its Ai kit ring have kept me from clicking.

Be patient Roberto. I've bought THREE 135 f/2.8 Q.C. lenses with the AI conversion kit already installed. They're around. You simply have to keep your eye on the auction sites and be prepared to act when you find one. I believe EBay has a couple of converted Q lenses but there is no urgency with this adventure...

Leighton, the other lens looks like a Q not a QC
The serial # and the Q by itself on the front of the lens tells me so
I think his description is wrong
double check it for me

Reagan



It is very important to be well informed when it comes to these lenses since sellers often have no idea what they're selling. I did a quick search after Leighton made his purchase and found a K lens identified as a Q and some character claiming "factory AI" for a lens with a butchered aperture ring. We need to rely on serial numbers and well as what is printed on the lens. We need to look carefully at photos from every angle. Of course, as smart as I am, I still bought a K lens THINKING it was a Q.C.... Of course, a couple of glasses of rye whiskey will do that to you...

How come Barbara looks so young and you have so much grey in your beard? You must have been a cradle robber...

Wonderful image and conversion Leighton. Eventually the people in our lives become ready to look without flinching at the camera lens. It is always a delight to photography folks willing to have their photo taken. She looks very comfortable. I note as well that your "puppy" has grown up...

First off, you're absolutely right about checking out the lenses on ebay and don't be afraid to ask the sellers questions.

Now...to Barbara having no grey hair. She's a red head, so they turn grey MUCH later in life. She's also nearly 9 years younger than this old man!

And yes, Gus is right at 100 pounds right now, not sure how much more he's gong to grow.

This place we are now in Brittany, Le Conquet, has the most spectacular tide I ever saw. But I admit I haven't seen many. Still the water recedes and comes back very deep inland leaving many boats standing on their fins or their side.







The result is that many people go around looking for seafood. Kids, including mine, go around with fish nets catching small fishing. But also adults go fishing hoping that some big fish got caught by the tide in the ponds.







Another thing I like here is the crabs :-) and also how every single tourist like me has taken a photo of these lobster nets :-) so I had to do the same.







The star of the day was the beach. Apart from the sun and the tan we get from it. It has a very special silver and folder glittering sand. As today it was somewhat raining, I did not bring the camera there for fear of damage in my old lenses. But I will try next time to capture how beautiful this is ... Now I can only share the effect of one day on the beach on my son ... From white and dark hair, to lobster red and kind of blond







All photos taken with the very old nikkor H 85/1.8 on D800 and processed (unfortunately) with snapseed on the ipad with which I seem not to manage to straighten any photo when needed. Today I has fun with this lens and a AF fisheye. Tomorrow, I hope to bring the 180 to the beach and the fisheye to the light houses (but AF so no sharing)! And sorry for the long post.
