Thank you all for the kind words and encouragement. The prognosis looks good at this point. The only bad part is that I'll be out of commission for up to 8 weeks after. Bad timing for Barbara and I.

I will try to post an update after my surgery.

This really IS a special place in cyberspace and the only place I feel truly at home. Keep the pics coming, I'll need something to look at.

And 360 years later: "On 31 October 1992, Pope John Paul II expressed regret for how the Galileo affair was handled, and officially conceded that the Earth was not stationary ..."

Justice delayed is justice denied.

Buddy, Scott, Rafael, thanks for your kind comments.

George, I really like the very old school rendering of that 2.8 cm Nikon S
Interesting pics, José, thanks for sharing

^^^^^^
Thanks Philippe. I acquired that lens literally an hour or two before shooting those photos. Completely unplanned find. I was in a camera shop near the downtown area that had been there for years. I drop in a couple times a year. I was there Saturday looking at hard cases and casually asked if they had any old Nikon rangefinder gear. This is an old school camera shop and there is stuff everywhere. Old cameras from point and shoot to field cameras. The guy goes into an office/store room and opens a file cabinet and pulls out an old camera bag. Inside was a Nikon S2 with a couple 5cm lenses and a Topcon lens case. We open the Topcon case and low and behold, there is the Nikkor 2.8cm. It looked a little rough but was mainly grime and dirt from the years. We settled on a price for the condition and off I went

I cleaned the optics with what I had in my bag and you see the results. Not perfect but nothing out of the ordinary from a lens that is 60+ years old. Once I got home, I gave it a good cleaning overall and it is in very good condition. Will definitely be one I put in my "never sell" list.

So that's how they said "Kill em all and let God sort it out!" as we Marines say now.

Leighton, shocked to hear the news, but reading the prognosis is a bit of a relief. Hopefully you will be up and about earlier than the expected recovery time.

A pair of pics, one with the oldest F and one with the newest.

Nikon F plain prism, Nippon Kogaku 10.5cm f 4 T lens, Tri-X 400
Hitchcock by Maryland Photos, on Flickr

Nikon F6, Nikkor 105mm f2.5 AI lens, Velvia 100
StPatParade by Maryland Photos, on Flickr

If I can remember right, exposure was in the A mode on the F6. I have it set to save the info between frames, but not sure what all got set to be saved. The roll will tell.

Inspired by George, I am angling to get one or the other of the LTM Nikkor lenses attached to the Df. Maybe a while but will end up here with the results.

And I may be getting hold of an X-T20 soon. I read George's previous post on adapter thickness; I have some trepidation on getting a cheapo one off ebay now. But the expensive ones are really expensive, novoflex wow.

Leighton uses the Metabones adapter for Nikkor MF to Fuji usually about $99 USD

I also like Metabones for Nikon F to Fuji X. I have had no issue with Fotodiox in Nikon F to X either. I did try the expensive Novoflex and it would not infinity focus. Returned it. I am sure it was one off issue, but for that price Your mileage may vary.

My advise is buy from someone who has a good return policy and test as soon as you get it.

If you are considering adapting Leica M glass or M39/LTM, the Fuji branded Leica M-Fuji X adapter is perfect. Considerably more expensive than off brand, but spot on. Plus if you had an issue, you can hold Fuji's feet to the fire since it is their own branded adapter. The adapter that I modified in my previous post was a Fotodiox branded Leica M - Fuji X adapter.

Don't let my experience scare you off. Adapted glass on the Fuji is great!

Just my $.02

George

I just realised... The adapters, they're all stop down metering, aren't they?

Yep. EVFs are nice though, they compensate for less light coming in. On the fly DOF viewing is great!

I just couldn't get on with the EVF myself, some good aspects to it but it's still basically Live View, and I hate Live View ! (I hate Live View even more now I'm shooting with a D600 as it doesn't have exposure simulation)

Maybe in another 5 years the tech will be sufficiently advanced but for me at the moment, it's still OVF.

Anyways, here's a damselfly
