I think it was low who asked about the 35-105.
I have been doing the usual around the house, in the garden and with the kids tests. Nothing artistic but it is usual things I do and give me a feeling for every lens.

The lens is nicely small and solid, but a least my copy has a focus ring that is not optimal. Well damped but not for small movements. Something like a mix between the ais105 and the ai105. Fine precise focus is still possible because the lens is a 3.5. But it needs some getting used to.

Thx for commenting on it. Really appreciate it!

I have a question on how the registry of a zoom lens can affect the exposure.
My understanding may be way off, but doesn't the camera look through the lens to see how much light it is letting in (it always looks at the widest aperture) so it then uses that light to evaluate the metering calculating from the max to the set aperture how to expose when the lens is stopped down at the moment you take the shot.

Since the zoom lens is aready zoomed in or out to the desited length when the camera does the metering, would

In setting the non-CPU for the 35, 50, 135mm FLs there seems to be an adjustment to the EV in order to get the exposure correct. I learned that there is no definitive instruction from Nikon or elsewhere. These non-CPU settings must share the same registry settings for primes as well as zooms. That said are they generic or favor one over another.

The 43-86 is the only exception as there is not a "43" or an "86" prime in the line up. So I am curious if there is a difference and the only place to find out is in the field. I will try later using the CPU at the correct focal length either its zoom or wide. i.e. setting the CPU to 43 and shooting the lens at 43 and 86, then vise versa.

Yesterday I tried some experiments and didn't see a great difference which led to my ??'s to Kevin.

Another pano for ya.

A true engineering marvel, the iconic Forth Rail Bridge in Scotland, built in 1890 and was until 1917, when the Quebec Bridge was completed, the longest single cantilever bridge span in the world, and it still has the world's second-longest single span.

A colloquialism in these parts for a never ending job due to the belief that in the old days by the time they had finished painting it they would need to go back to the other end and start again - "like painting the forth bridge"
Apparently it's not true (as I have just discovered)

Thanks for the heads up Reagan. Sadly shipping to US only but maybe someone there is about to get lucky. Pity as I need a replacement for my 14-24mm helpfully modified by my son.

Thanks for the call ... you woke me up!

Some from the 43-86, a later edition that Rockwell say's "is not bad." Wide open the bokeh is not good but other than being a bit soft ... not bad. I thought why would Nikon pick this lens for the Df AD campaign when so many others are so much better. Answer is, "it's not bad!"

Like Raphael said and I paraphrase, you got to love the ugly ones too! For $59.00, in as new condition, it's one more NMFAS box checked.

Looks like it's had the front element removed - poorly judging from the damage to the retaining rings. Might be good for a parts lens if one were to need one

Love the bridge photo Andy. I'd welcome a copy of that panorama on another thread I started in the City, Street and Architecture forum called Bridges of the World. This would be an amazing addition to the collection slowly developing on that thread. There are no limitations on camera system or lens used so folks can knock themselves out if they have something to share. There are so many beautiful bridges in the world I thought this new thread might get some traction but I'm not certain everyone is checking out that forum. Think about it Andy.

I'm enjoying the conversation about how the non-CPU register works. Honestly, it is difficult to imagine the processing software within the camera is not taking account of all the information available to it as it determines how to meter individual images. Granted, the non-CPU register doesn't report fully the information that is available for modern AF lenses. Interesting, Ken's observation that the focal lengths 43 and 86 have no correlation to an prime lenses. I can't imagine they are there simply to give two options for listing what is a rather pedestrian consumer grade lens. That they might be used for a variety of zoom lenses makes some sense though I'm really guessing here. I'd love to learn more on the subject. Anyone doing some research?

The seller has been very responsive and has supplied to me full-size D800 images taken with this lens. He's also getting me some additional images of the front and rear elements. Says he bought it on ebay from the original owner who used it on her F3 (we've all heard that kind of story before). It might make a good parts/spare even if the front element has some marks on it.

It's also one of the earliest true AI versions I've seen based on the serial number.

Curtis ... yes out of curiosity and BOREDOM!

Nikon non-CPU data allows the user to dial in the following focal lengths. Next to each number on my list is a (P) and/or a (Z) indicating the focal length is found on a prime or a zoom lens. This list is compared to Braczko's ** book and as far as my research has taken me. I am sure there are exotics out there and I did not list the CM designated lenses i.e 3.5, 10.5 CM's etc

The sole zoom only FL's in the list are the 25,43,70,86,and 360. the rest as indicated share lens types. I think they are deliberate options by Nikon. Now ... how to use them!
