That's a magnificent lenticular cloud too - beautiful!

A sexy looking Nikon RF lens:

anyone know anything about it? Looks like it has some oil on the blades.

Looks like it could be fun to use on my A7RII with the right adapter.

EDIT: Found that PR had reviewed this lens:
https://phillipreeve.net/blog/review-nikon-nikkor-p-85mm-2-0-rf/

it has "character" . . .


Just my opinion - I am not familiar with RF lenses, but as one who has restored numerous lenses, I avoid blades like that. That is a difficult repair, and the presence of oil means the lens was likely subject to high temperatures, such as a hot car, and the lubricant has most likely formed a haze on inner elements. I can clean up haze with a few hours work, but I never touch blades personally. Also, as time goes on they are likely to lose performance unless serviced (sticking).

Went back to Austin Falls yesterday. All images 28-50mm f3.5 AiS Zoom.

I wanted to test this lens up against my primes. I did sharpness tests on it last summer and was very surprised that it had better sharpness than some of my primes (such as the 20mm f4 Ai). It's really amazing to spend hours with one cheap, tiny old lens and get results like this. All I needed was this one little lens for wide angle, normal, and pano aspects. It suffers just a bit with regard to sharpness, but otherwise is a wonderful little gem. I must admit though, on my next trip I'm leaving the zoom home. By the way, unlike my one modern zoom (28-300 3.5-5.6 AF-S), and I bet most of them, this one has one single non-parallax point for all focal lengths (80mm). That's amazingly useful for panoramas. It's inconvenient to have to look up the NPP every time you change focal lengths when making panos. I wonder why? It's a push-pull design, and the front rotates with focus.

George, the image with the man on the steps is powerful, but it's also a wonderful showcase for the lens rendering.

Two MF wide angle zooms I toy with in my head once in awhile, the 28-50 and the 25-50, both wonderfully showcased by Rafael and Dan. Actually had a 28-50 in my film days, remember it fondly as a good adjunct to the 75-150, great for backpacking with the FM2. Don't quite remember why, but sold the 28-50, probably because I thought I had to have a zoom that started at 24mm, and may have replaced it with the 24-50AF zoom, now no longer owned either.

More cleanup in LR, don't think I've shared this one. D800 70-210 f4.0 Series E.

Thanks Ray. Yes, the scene made me stop and pause for a moment.

It's looks as if Nikon has put the "Thousand and One Nights" web pages back up on their site. Interesting stuff there about the development of some of their lenses, even if the translation is a bit awkward at times. I wonder why all those pages were pulled down for many months.

For Leighton, the 50-135 AIS on Nikon F2SB, with Ektar 100. The F2SB feels positively tiny and automated, after handling the Marshal Press behemoth

Chris, good looking group of musicians.

Jeff, love the oncoming waves!

Steve, loved each one of your latest Nikon/Nikon photos, especially the one of the guy under the harbor hotel sign.

Scott (Georgia), enjoyed that scene (wow!), and love it that you are shooting with Nikon RF!! Look forward to see what you get back on the roll.

Peter (Madison), that shot is definitely not "failed". Cool lighting effect.

John, fantastic light on the snow cap behind the town!

Ken (Portland), you do some pretty nice closeups. That one of the branch is very nice.

Luka, well seen shot of the bar sign.

Mark, almost missed the masters of photography link you posted, will have to check that out.

Ray, nice scene at the water.

Chris, thanks for posting the pic and history of that leaning tower in Netherlands. Need to read up on it, very interesting that it leans more than the one in Pisa.

Rafael, very glad to hear that Abraham is doing well. Prayers and well wishes for his continued recovery.

Peter (Knysna), agreed on the simplicity and value of PSE.

George, excellent examples from the 85 Nikon RF.

Ronny, always amazing Icelandscapes!!

Dan, your waterfall pics have been inspiring me to try my hand at it too.

Same time and place as the "Runner" picture I posted not too long ago. This is the Battle of Fallen Timbers monument that's made an appearance before. I liked the lighting and the remainder of the yellow leaves against the blue sky. D700, 28mm f2.8 AIS, 1/160, f8.0, ISO 200.

This season, the colors started out rather dull. But in the past few weeks they have really started to shine. Some colors of Autumn with the 50-135mm.

Ballard, thanks for that link. I had never seen it before, and it's full of wonderful info about some of my favorite lenses!

Saph, thank you so much for your comment. That is the highest complement I've ever gotten on my photography, and for the first time I can truly say I've succeeded in the art

leighton, I love all three photos. Is that a "burning bush?"
