Steve, very nice series.

RM, I like the second two images from your temple series.

Ray, just do it!

Directly across the street from Zhenru Buddhist Temple is Shanghai's largest fish market. There one can find hundreds of stalls selling all kinds of ocean sea food as well as some fresh water fish. While walking through there to get to the temple, I found this little guy. I looked over at him and he immediately reacted to my peer. He backed away, under the water, and as I stood there he slowly came back out. Clearly, his/her vision is excellent and we examined each other for a few moments. For a few bucks, I wish I could have bought him, and released him from his bondage, if only there were a suitable location. His fate is to be ripped apart alive and one can see that all across this fish market. I find this immensely painful to watch. And ironic as across the street there is this temple, which teaches loving kindness to ALL beings. Buddhism makes no differentiation between man and beast. Despite the popularity of these temples, I think that 99% of those who attend have no idea of the basic tenants of Buddhism. Everyone seemingly goes to temples to pray for wealth, prosperity, and good luck. The very antithesis of Buddhism.

55mm f/2.8 AIS on Neopan 400 film. Some slight motion blur due to very low light levels (slow shutter speeds).

Wow!! Those shots from Yosemite is just amazing. Such lovely texture!!
Im getting more and more convinced that I need one.

Now Ive seen som many great pics I just have to grab my camera and tripod and go out there and shoot!


Thanks Bob! yeah, it's a great place to shoot, but I'd wait until around March next year. It's too hot and dry right now.

Just got my 16/3.5 AI back from APS - I haven't shot with it yet, but WOW!
Totally clean inside.

No dust behind front element, no dust internally, and the deposit along the edge of the rear element is gone. Very cool.

The focus ring seems about the same, but the aperture ring is pretty stiff - not too stiff, but you won't accidentally bump it to another aperture.

I'll have to go shoot with it to make sure the optics are OK, but so far for $240 they did a great job.

That is good to know. I have a couple lenses that I am debating if I want to take the time to clean them myself or just have a shop do the work. Eagerly await your findings.

Curtis posted that 85mm that is located in Japan. I've been leery of purchasing from outside the U.S.

What are the typical fees/duties? How about from Canada?

Thanks,

Great shots everyone. Digging the Yosemite and car shots. This is to hard to catch up.

The Df gets returned tomorrow for a full refund so I'll be on the hunt again.

That's the kind of shot that can sell me on this lens! Other shots just kill it for me. Rarely have I see such a Jeckly and Hyde lens as this one.

As I'm in Australia, Japan is closer than the US for me and seems to have more reasonable postage rates.

They seem to have some really nice examples too.

In Oz, as long as the item's value is below a thousand bucks then no duties, not sure about the States.

Well, I have just picked up a D800 local to me for 1600 bucks. I missed the DR and the cropability compared to the D700. So the 700 has gotta go.

Off to pick it up and pick up a new USB3 card reader !

I was the only bidder on a 85mm f1.4 AIS for 400 bucks!

I feel like Ray when he finds those deals.

Cropped from a 20mm f/2.8 AIS shot made on Fuji Acros film.

Something different, a video we made for our company. We used my d800 plus the ais 50/1.4, the ais 28, a gopro and few cuts from a piece that was made on national tv.
It was quite fun to use the manual lenses for video!

Anyhow this http://youtu.be/BjQ19lTU_uQ
