I probably shouldn't play on the fact you're from Norway Frode, but then all my grandparents came from Norway the early part of the last century. My parents were born here and so was I. Although I don't speak Norwegian I feel an affinity for your homeland. I'm delighted to welcome you to our thread. You've definitely caught the flavor of what this is all about. Funny, when we made the decision a fews years ago to limit this thread to Nikon MF lenses mounted on Nikon cameras there was some grumbling. I pushed the matter simply because I didn't want to have any issue that could possibly create divisions. I didn't want to be comparing Zeiss lenses and Nikkor lenses. I didn't want to compare how Nikkor lenses perform on Nikon or Canon cameras. Without those opportunities for creating division, the only thing we were left with was celebrating these lenses. That probably offended a few folks and led some to walk away out of boredom. If you can't have a fight on the internet, what use is there for it...
Are these MF Nikkors the best lenses ever manufactured? Probably not, but they perform admirably, especially in the hands of a skilled photographer. And, they give those willing to experiment with them a very different experience than what one has shooting with AF lenses. We celebrate all of that and to my delight, we've found there are some very talented photos who want to share the adventure with us. You've gotten a taste for that and appear to want more of it. I've been blessed to experience it for four years and could not be happier. I enjoy many things on FM and play all over the internet, but this is the place I call home. I'm here multiple times most days, just to catch up with friends.
Happy shooting and enjoy yourself with this splendid collection of fine folks from around the world.
