These are some of the sharpest, more colorful photos I have seen in this forum.
Any questions about the quality of Nikkor optics?

I can only guess that these wonderful lenses fell out of favor with the vast majority of photographers because AF shooting doesn't require the same degree of concentration as MF shooting. I know for those who've shot for decades, manual focusing is second nature. I was shooting yesterday afternoon and friend who'd observed me shooting before exclaimed, "You're shooting manual!" and proceeded to tell me about his long lost Nikon kit. Obviously my left hand turning the lens gave me away.

I can't help but wonder how many of the folks posting images from the MF Nikkor lenses are actually still shooting with them. Quite a few photos posted have been recycled through other threads and could have been taken long ago. For me its all new and refreshing, reinvigorating my photography. I'm now an apostle...

From this morning, taken at the Marin Rowing Club with the 28 f/2.8 AI-s at f/4.
