Anyone knows more how 20/4 compare with the others?


I agree about the differences that have came out between the 20mm f/2.8 and f/3.5, tha latter being very good at close distances and against the sun but quite soft in the corners at infinity even well stopped down.
My 20mm f/4 copy is quite good at infinity in the borders/corners (better than f/3.5 and worse than f/2.8) but poor in the borders/corners at close distances.
Center is always very good wide open too and I like the way it render contrast and colour.
Being so small and light it is the 20mm I usually bring with me when I travel.

Some samples all at f/11

Wow! Thanks Roberto! Impressive images....

If I remember right 20/4 was the lens in the bag of Galen Rowell. It seems to be still a good option.

You are right Mihai, and the 75-150mm E was often in his bag too, right like my bag.....I can not figure out as the results are so different

The postman made a wonderful delivery today. A mint Nikkor 35mm 1.4 AI-S. I picked it up off of Flea-bay. The seller said it was mint and he wasn't kidding! It is sharp and bokehlicious!


Congrats! Now have fun with it!

Nice panoes Peter. Pano-shooting can give you nice effects with the surf rolling in.

Raining here most of the day so stuck inside. I got out the NMFAS Society Manual to check backfocusing procedures when using the green dot on the body. Seems this lens is ok as it was dead on.

Nice shots, Peter. Those D200 love using up battery power, don't they!

Ed


Thanks Ed - in my experience it's the battery quality not so much the camera. The Nikon original is far and away the best and the other two I have are cheap generics that don't have the staying power.

Leighton, thanks - I like the jailed pumpkin!

Ray, thank you. I wasn't singing when I got 40 frames from an apparently fully charged battery

Roberto - bravo!

Paul - thank you. I have some very interesting surf effects - unintentionally!

Monty - very nice batch of images today

Thanks for posting that comment Monty, about how Nikki has reinvigorated your passion for photography
I’ve enjoyed everything you’ve posted so far
It got me browsing through the blog again from start to end, and reminiscing on my own experiences with
It reminded me that I too, was in a rut, until I received that brown box and then everything was in a blur, swept in a whirlwind of shutter clicks, hastily made plans and meticulously laid ones; cancel an appointment here, take the day off there
Thanks for the timely reminder, I feel a second wind coming…

Not 100% sure how I feel about this one. I was going for just the tip of the stamin... Granted, this was done hand held in very poor light as a test...
