I've been watching this tread from its beginning but I've had courage to post only on the 85th page. It was great to get a warm receiving from Curtis, as well from Gregory (NikkorAIS), Alan (Huddy), Tony (Anthonysemone)...

At that time (January 2011) John, Rolf, Brad, Andy, Rinie, Rafael, Leighton, Laura and some others were among the (very) active members and Curtis released a first list of countries represented by members of the thread. It were 19 countries:

Australia
Austria
Bulgaria
Canada
Denmark
Finland
Germany
Italy
Japan
Netherlands
Norway
Pakistan
Romania
Singapore
Spain
Sweden
Turkey
United Kingdom
United States

I wonder if Curtis keeps the record...

I've been reading the thread almost constantly over the years but my contribution was up and down... more down lately For me the most significant part of this experience was related to Nikki. I'm deeply thankful for those people who made that possible.

To celebrate and in order to bring a humble contribution I want to share first a picture done with Nikki and then, three images with 28/2 AI-S, one of my top favourite MF lens.

Last but not the least, one done with the lens that Curtis knows already that will be burried with me, Nikkor Noct:

Mihai, this is the first time I see you posting and also first time I had the chance to see some of you photography. I really like your style and my favorite one of this set is the second one, simply amazing that sky. Please share some more of your work whenever possible!


Here's my contribution from today. This summer seems to be the Island-Summer for me. After Madeira island and 5 of the 9 islands of the Azores archipelago, today I went to the island I see from my house here in Portugal (crazy, but I have never been there before). Ilha das Berlengas - Berlenga Island, google it if you are interested in some details.

I never quite understood the 800mm f/5.6 lens - a 600 f/4.0 with TC-14 will be 840mm f/5.6 and almost as sharp, much more versatile, about the same weight, and generally is cheaper, probably because it isn't so rare.



Perhaps because you are not a bird photog. Birders always need more reach
The 800/5.6 ais has 3 ED elements (vs. 2 of the 600/4 & 600/5.6) which supposedly are responsible for the excellent image with all TCs, including the TC20EIII for a very good and relatively "luminous" 1600/11 lens, or a "luminous" 1280/9 (TC16A), or a "luminous" 1360/9.5 (TC17E).
BTW my copy is a ~battered one bought relatively "cheap" at ~USD 2,200.00 3 years ago from a pro wildife photog here in Brazil.
And it is not so rare - almost 3,000 were made and right now I can see at least 8 at ebay!!
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xnikon+800mm+f%2F5.6+ed+-%28af%2Cvr%29&_nkw=nikon+800mm+f%2F5.6+ed+-%28af%2Cvr%29&_sacat=0


Three samples at 1600mm:

Lazy young guy vs. working hard old man by labecoaves, on Flickr

Lazy young guy looking at atmospheric turbulence vs. working hard old man.
Real life test of the Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 AIS EDIF + TC20EIII (=1600 f/11).
Shot with D7000, tripod, ISO 200 f/16 (=8) at 1/160s. ~ 20% cropped. ~200m of distance.



Moon 800mm f/5.6+TC20EIII = 1600mm f/11 by labecoaves, on Flickr

Test of the new TC20EIII on an old Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 AI-S EDIF.
D300, ISO 200, 1/50s at f/16(=8), tripod, MLU during 20 s, cable release.
Spot metering, -0.33 EV.




And my last shot of the "angles of view" panel posted yesterday - note the details on the cloth fabric at 650m of distance, even through some atmospheric turbulence (dry season here, some dust in the air):


1600mmf11 - 650m away by labecoaves, on Flickr

1600mmf11 - 650m away
D600 + 800/5.6 + TC20EIII + tripod + remote shutter, ISO 320, f/22 (f11x2) at 1/200s.
The 3 ED elements of this lens can be responsible for the lack of CA even when using a 2x TC.

Mihai, thanks for posting, it was always wonderful to see your part of the world when you were active here before. Hope to see more scenes from your side again!

Jose, just love seeing the crater details in your moons!

Ric, new here? Welcome, and quite a splash with your early shots

Thanks folks for the comments/likes on the Velvia cat pic with the wide open 85 1.8 HC. Ray, interestingly the print I got from the lab doesn't have the grain or its too small to notice, but the scan does. Curtis, I think Jose has quite a setup for doing scans with his camera of his old slides, I need to see if I can develop something like it.

One question for the vintage Nikon experts here. Would AI/AIS or AI'd lenses work with older Nikons, like the F2, or FM2? I know they work just fine and meter well with the FG that I have but that camera (I am on my 2nd one now) has issues with film advance sometimes.

Peter, I've never used a lens over 500mm, but I think "I understand the 800/5.6" ;-) I've watched a TV-documentation about paparazzi once (it was back in the film-days) and one pap was using the Pentax A* 1200/8 for his job. Some people just want the longest and fastest available lens. That's why really long lenses were built by Nikon, Canon, Pentax (not sure about Minolta). Those lenses were probably be made in very small production runs or even one-off (recalling a Zeiss 1700/4 for Hasselblad, this one was a MMF-lens of some sort - motorized manual focus).
A 600/4 + TC-14 might be the more versatile and cheaper alternative to the 800/5.6, but it's nice for every photographer in need for some really long glass to have a few options to choose from.

Leighton, Ramos, Georg and Samy: thanks!

Jose, your moon shots are for encyclopedia...

Love the lead singer too, Leighton. Very nice BW process!

Georg, your pictures are like a hook for me in this thread!

Ramos, I'm jealous on you for the chance to be where you are!

Before to go in bed (1 a.m. here) two more images, again a fav lens of mine: 105/2.5 (Sonnar design). An unusual subject for it this time, thinking at Jose:

Mihai very good to see you back and seeing your work recalls my addiction to this thread.

Curtis, Jay, Raphael and Ryan glad the quake was nothing that affected your way of life. Our hurricanes are bad ... but e can build to make things safe.

Nuno good stuff.

Leighton "Pete Seeger" never looked so good. The QC is a wonderful lens and the 50-135 holds its own too, plus it's versatile.

Ric nice use of the Df ... and the pool!

Just a couple to post today several crops of larger shots. I like the Df's color ranges and it couples up well with the 55mm 1.2

Well, I haven't been on a ton and really haven't been shooting much at all, but when I do go out, one of the things that I have been practicing is getting it right in camera and shooting JPG. I am also keeping the RAW, but trying to cut down on my post work. I don't really have the time to edit much anymore, so I figure I should learn how to do it in camera. Also, I find that this emulates working with film a little bit.

All taken with the D7000 and the 55/1.2 AI. Also, these are uploaded full resolution, so you can see how well the in camera processing actually is. BTW, the links I am posting here are resizes from Flickr.

Let me know what you think. I know I need to work on being level, but anything else would be welcome.
