Exactly. I bought them cause I knew that I could easily sell them without loosing any money in case I did not like them.

Beach time now. I will try to process some more photos from the weekend tonight (not easy going through 1500 photos).

Nuno, obrigado! Thanks for the tips. In fact I even tried to include some landscape with the 16/3.5, which was in the trip too, but the scenarios were terrible, a far cry from yours or those of Peter/John. And the city was close so too much light pollution.

Leighton, If I remember was someone here that suggested the use of Birchwood/Casey Superblack instant touch pen. Depending on your lens you would need a "flat black" or a "gloss" version. I have both. Good luck in your conversion. If possible document it to show us over here.


Leighton,

The Birchwood Casey instant black is a paint based coloring for metal in a tube with a felt tip as an applicator. You can achieve a similar result with any good rattle can black applied with a small brush or cotton type swab.

However, Raphael suggested the use of a "professional" Sharpie marker that works well on aluminum. In fact I colored the whole barrel of my $20 Nikon 80-200 F4 using it.

Gun or metal bluing does not work on aluminum and there are no "home hobby" anodizing products I am aware of.

I'm off to the surgeon .....

Standing in front of this view, I had the 20mm mounted and didn't feel like taking the 16mm out of the pack for just one frame, so I made it happen with the 20mm taking three landscape shots on top of each other.

The stitched image needed a lot of post stitch correction to get lines straight (using the tools in Photoshop's adaptive wide angle filter, which also can be used to straighten fisheye shots manually). Hard to tell now that this is a panorama.

July 3, Jackson Meadow in Ansel Adams Wilderness.

20mm f/3.5 @ f/8.0 1/80s ISO 100







same location, same lens, no stitching,

20mm f/3.5 @ f8.0 1/60s ISO 100

Chin,Peter, Ray, John,Jose,Nuno, David - Amazing Work from you guys. Keep them coming.

Our Baby's ETA is today. Still nothing so far. I decided to work from home for the rest of the week. I am thankful to be in NJ which brings the nature to me.
Couple of nice sightings from weekend. All taken using the D600 + 400mm f3.5 AI combo. The Hummingbird shot was inspired from Jose's shot.

Ram it's such an exciting time in your life. Those of us who have gone through this know your excitement. We are all wishing a safe delivery and a healthy baby. I hope you aren't wondering beyond the sound of her voice

Back from the surgeon !

Everything has mended NO need for the left leg brace !

New boot for the right ankle and the OK to start walking on it !

See him again in six weeks.

The 16mm 2.8 asked for some attention. Hard to use sitting but what the hay! My legs will now get an even tan!

Just got off the phone with a REAL person at APS and they said they can service my 16/3.5 AI. $145 for a standard CLA, but if the element has issues there are no parts.
Fair enough! Farther than I got with Nikon LA that's for sure!

Off it will go tomorrow.

Mule bones, at least those that are left after many years in the wilderness. Somebody organized them nicely between last summer and this year. We first saw this skeleton in 2008. Sepia looked like a good choice for this image.

I am sure that the beach where Nuno was is very different from where I was. It is a place called "plage de blanc sablon" and it has some funny glittering that it impossible to capture in a photo without the photo being boring ... Here is a few with the 180/2.8ED ...

Very popular thing is to make markings on the beach and use them to play volleyball or a mix between volleyball and footbal. Something it did not exists at my time or maybe I should say in my country, as ball games on the beach are forbidden.






Any type of surf is of couse very popular.











And of course surf is mostly falling here despite the tiny waves. I is just kids with no clue about surfing ... Not like what I have seen in California or Australia years ago.

But beach also means kids playing






And mothers watching over






Tomorrow we will go the market, and somewhere else. I guess it will be time for a 35 ... But mine is AF.

Ken, congratulations! You're patience and diligence are paying off. I know this has not been the most pleasant experience, but you've surely born it like a trooper. Now the next stage begins, but that will surely be improved by the arrival of the Df. I haven't acknowledged that piece of good news. How clever of you to "help" you wife find satisfaction in FX shooting so you end up with TWO fine FX cameras in the family. I'll really enjoy hearing your thoughts about the Df as you put the various MF lenses from your kit through their paces. You'll likely be tickling my fancy as you do it. We do help one another out in that way...

And, watch where you put your new boot down... you don't need another tumble...

David, I'm not a mind reader... you mentioned the Df and that is a subject I'm not inclined to miss when it comes up. I know we'll see more Df cameras showing up on this thread as time passes. I'm really interested, as a I say to Ken above, in how folks shooting with MF lenses feel about the camera. I've gotten along fine with the standard focusing screen on my D700, so the inability to change the screen in the Df, which has led to complaints, may not pose a serious drawback. But I need to hear what folks who really love MF shooting have to say about the subject. You and Ken will be the guinea pigs...

NMFAS alert:

the legend is "cheaper" than ever, and the seller is accepting offers!:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=171409877684&ssPageName=ADME:B:WNARL:US:1123

Too bad this is impossible for me, since Brazilian Customs ridiculously overtax in 60% the lens + shipping prices (!!!)

Rafael, what are you waiting for?
And Ray, you can pick it by car, a Florida resident lens

Ken, I'm glad to read that no further operations are in order. Hope you'll be able to "swing a cat" soon (I hope that's not improper English).

John, good news about your 16/3.5!

Ram, best wishes for your growing family!

Francesco, I really enjoyed looking at your fine harbor-shots.


Can't comment all the amazing images, great work everyone! And thanks for the kind words on my recent posts.



Here are some snaps from Copenhagen, a very photogenic capital. Too much interesting subjects to capture in a appropriate fashion for me, that's why I took just some "pictorial notes".


"Den lille Havfrue" is THE tourist-attraction here. A fun-snap with the 400/3.5


A german sailing-vessel infront of the Royal cast collection (if I'm not mistaken)
The building at the left side contains some probably expensive appartments.
PC-Nikkor 35/2.8 at f/5.6


A bad snap from a moving boat - the houseboat looked very interesting. PC 35/2.8 too


Cheerful scullers on a sunny sunday. Life is good in Copenhagen ;-) PC 35/2.8
