TheOtherKav, wow, you have some great equipment in your profile. And superb shots inside the troop transport!


Thanks! I've been very lucky with the stuff I've found. The local camera shops have been very good to me.

Here's "Gunny Claus" bringing toys to the Families of some of the local Marines:

D7000, Nikon 300mm f2.8

Oak Tree in NC

D7000 24mm f2.8? (it says 85mm f1.4 But I think that's wrong.)

Last one

Nikon F3, 24mm f2.8

Kav, the Marine Christmas delivery (did he just step off the ramp of that open transport ( ) and the F3 film pic of the engine maintenance are fantastic. Keep them coming!

Andy, that golden ant is amazing. Looks like a 3-D computer rendering!

Ronny, the green northern lights with the low low sun on the horizon are breathtaking. Again

George, cool post with the W-Nikkor lens, that should motivate me to take a gear pic soon.

Jay, you and Reagan can drive up to Rochester to visit Scott and see the real thing. Snow babies on a store shelf doesn't cut it

Buddy, enjoying the Lumi Amy series, but the last one is precious, what a photo moment!!!

Philippe, that is not the Paris Reagan is pining for

Scott, glad most of the white stuff skipped us here, you seem to enjoy it a lot more anyway

The storm intensifies...... Woke up to 18 inches of snow and it has continued all day today. Taken with the 55 f3.5 Ai. Thanks for looking.

Somewhere out there buried in the snow is a UPS truck with a 300 f/4E PF ED VR lens with my name on it. It may never be found. Tracking UPS sure doesn't know. Spring 2018 maybe

Thanks for all comments and likes, you are too kind.
Two more from Rome.


The "Lupa Capitolina", symbol of Rome:

Lupa capitolina, Roma by Jose, on Flickr

D610 + Nikkor 25-50mm f/4 ai-s @ 45-50mm, ISO 1600, wide open at 1/30s.
Possibly a copy made ~ 1000-1100 AD from an original of 5th century BC. Capitoline Museum.



And, sorry Philippe - I cannot avoit it , Madame Mère's balcony in the Palazzo Bonaparte:

Green covered balcony at Palazzo Bonaparte, Rome. by Jose, on Flickr

D610 + Nikon 75-150mm f/3.5E @150mm hand held, ISO 100, f/8 at 1/50s. 4 shots pano.
The green covered balcony is where Madame Mère (mother of Napoleon I) used to past time watching Via del Corso and Piazza Venezia traffic. Very bad idea to put that security camera in the balcony. She lived in Rome from 1816 until her death in 1836.

He was taxied to the area and stepped off the helicopter in front of the kids. You can see the heat from the engines behind him.

Geek Alert - Technical info to follow

Hi group. I just wanted to pass along some information and an experience of mine that others may find useful regarding adapted lenses and adapters.

As some of us are using these great manual focus lenses adapted to various bodies, one point of potential frustration can be around inconsistency in adapters. It is important for adapters to ensure infinity focus and I agree that is critical, but it seems some adapters are made with specs that are very conservative around that goal. Meaning to ensure infinity focus, some may actually allow focus past infinity. (Meaning actual achievement of infinity may happen before the lens goes to the hard stop marking of infinity). If that makes sense.

I have been using a number of Nikkor rangefinder lenses in LTM mount and Nikon S mount. Since I mainly used the focus peaking feature of the camera body, I never really noticed where the lens was actually focusing in reference to the lens markings.

I recently was using my adapted lenses and X-Pro2 for zone focusing photography and noticed that all my images were out of focus. Since it was happening to all my lenses, I knew it was not a lens issue. To test this, I picked out a target that was 10’ away and focused via live view/focus peaking. All lenses were consistently focusing around the 6.5’ mark on the barrel. Tried it on another adapted body, same thing. The only common component was the adapter.

This is where it is important to take a close look at the tolerances of adapters and flange focal distances. In my case, I am using Fuji X cameras and Nikkor rangefinder lenses and a Leica M mount adapter. The flange focal distance of Fuji X is 17.7mm, the focal flange distance of Leica M is 27.8mm. So, for adapted lenses in this instance to be accurate the adapter needs to be 10.1mm (27.8mm (Leica) - 17.7mm (Fuji) = 10.1mm). If it is thicker, you will not be able to achieve infinity and if thiner it will go past infinity. In either case, the distance scale on the lens barrel will not be accurate. i.e. if you set the lens to 10’ it will not be focused at 10’.

I used a digital caliper (should be in everyones tool kit) and checked my adapter in question. Bingo. It was not 10.1mm.

Below I posted a sequence of images* showing what I did to correct mine. I have had this adapter for quite awhile and is past the window to return.

(Top Left) - shows that my adapter was only 9.94mm thick. This means I needed to increase the thickness by 0.16mm. I could do this by adding a shim in the adapter (was actually made in two pieces).

(Top Right) - after searching for material to use, I found a folio binder cover (plastic) that was exactly 0.16mm thick. Stroke of luck.

(Bottom Left) - shows the base of the adapter with the shims I made out of the plastic.

(Bottom Right) - shows the now modified adapter at the proper 10.1mm thickness.

I am happy to report, that it solved my problems. Focus distance scale on the lens matches what is actually focused, and infinity focus is at the hard stop of the lenses.

I just wanted to share this information in the event someone else runs in to this situation.
