I did that with my Series E 50/1.8. It is just a hair larger than your 45, so I get it. The local camera store near me has a silver one that has been sitting in the case for 4 years. They won't budge on price though.


I also tried out a Series E 50/1.8, but did not like it wide open or even stopped down to f/2.8 on the D800 - for that one particular copy at least.

The 50/1.2 AIS they had in the case with "element separation" as far as I can tell only has some slight dust on one element, but I could not for the life of me find what the sales guy was referring to as element separation - likely just another time they have no clue on such matters.

My Series E has been used a lot, but is still in excellent condition. The only problem is that the helical has worn a little bit so the lens group can shift a little bit. My parts lens is nearly a perfect 10 in every way, except that something that looks like tree sap fell onto the lens and someone turned the focus to infinity, sucking the sap into the helical and effectively locking the lens.

There is a 'proper' 50/1.8 AiS in compact mount like the E version. I have one and its just the same performance as the 50/1.8 AF I also have.

The 50/1.8AIS is heavier than the E and John hikes a lot and needs to save as many ounces as possible.

The reason I got an 11 stop ND

Colour or monochrome ?

Andy, the color is great, but that b/w...WOW! Maybe dodge the highlights a tad and sharpen the trees a smidge?

Great shot Andy. I really like the tones in this one and how the filter did exactly what you planned it to do. I think I'd print this one large and hang it. Make sure you take care of that dust bunny first though.

Give me a clue Leighton, I can't differentiate between spots on pics and spots on my laptop from eating noodles. True

It is dead center, right above the horizon, between branches. I saw it, forgot to mention it.

hi everyone!

I'm lusting for a pancake MFNG What are some of the good ones? There are tons of 50 1.8 Non-E on ebay going for around $100. Are those any good? What's the difference between that and the Series E?

thanks

Have not had a chance to read the thread, or use my new 35mm 1.4N much as it is dark by the time I leave work.

It is definitely a radioactive thorium lens with lighly brownish glass.

Used it at a Raytheon Northrop Grumman society of hispanic engineers STEM event today, had some difficulty with the color balance, not used to the lens yet, but enjoying it nevertheless. The weekend is coming so I will be able to use in daylight and compare to my other 35 1.4s.

Lens is the brownish one on the left

As far as the Series E lenses go, they seem to be pretty good when it comes to the glass, but the build quality is not as robust as the AI/AIS lenses. They were considered the "consumer grade" at the time.

The 50/1.8 AIS that is taller than the pancake looking one is supposedly better. I have not used either so I can't tell you for sure.

I would also consider the 45mm f2.8 AI-P. John (jhinkey) shoots with one and loves it.

Mark, Leighton thanks for the comments and your fall leaves are perfectly focused and beautifully colored.

Jay you are knocking them out of the park with the last sets.

Ronny the 16mm is a fine lens in your hands

Andy some beautiful shots especially the pano.

Scott great Acadia series

Raphael very cool images of the 35mm lenses. You can be sure you lead the pack when it comes to these!

Diallo nice NYC skyline with the water tanks setting the Empire State Building in perspective.

Joseph very good low angle on the engine.

David I really like the rocky shore line and swimmers in the same shot.

Reagan nothing like the horizon while at sea. The Lakeland Lake Mirror Car show is this weekend and I will go to it and take one maybe two lenses. I have to call Ray to see if he's interested.

Samy the squirrel and cardinal offset by the snow is a keeper. Nice work.

Paul good concert shots.

Jose the woodpecker is super shap and colorful one of you nicest

Hien nice water lily

Phil like the use of the 1.2 and the colors are very good.

Georg the anchor shot is classic and well framed. Very Nice!

Ram welcome back. Is that the best you can do "one picture" you must have thousands of your new daughter!

Philippe ... the big guy in the back seat sure make the car look small. Nice angle!

I have no been taking pictures but walking in the pool as well as treading water for an hour each day. Getting strong and also getting sore. I am debating what lens to take to the Lake Mirror Car show tomorrow. The 35mm 1.4 is a contender but so is the 50mm 1.8 and the 28mm 2.8 if I take two.

Getting strange errors from my PC since I returned home from the trip ... is about to be retired before it dies.

Here is some work with the 35mm 1.4, a great lens for daily carry.

for macro aficionados, this is a must:
the rare/elusive preset Micro-NIKKOR 1:3.5 f=5.5cm:

relatively "cheap", since most go over US$ 1,600.00

Pristine-like, Rafael's collection deserves one

Yeah, that is a tick-mark macro lens. I didn't search the serial to be sure, but I believe that one has the CRC floating element. Nice lens.
