Found one more from today's excursion. This reminds me a bit of scenes from Battle of Britain movies, with Luftwaffe bombers blanketing the skies.

Philippe - I really like the shot of what appears to be a homeless woman in front of the stock exchange, what a contrast!

Monty - Great composition of the dude on the bus, well done.

Kevin - Fantastic colors in your leaf shots, beautiful.

Roberto - I love the white flower on the black background. Wonder what they would look like in B&W.

Samy - I really like the ducks and how they are opposing one another.

Back to the Chesapeake Bay in a little better conditions just the wrong time of day. First image I don't have to tell you what it was shot with a dead giveaway. 2nd is with the 50 1.2 AI 3rd is the 75-150E and the last with the 20-3.5 UD. The group is the birdwatchers and they are a much stranger bunch than we are by far. I remarked to them the place was quite devoid of birds and got some very deadpan looks.


Ron I especially like the third one with the tree. And the reason I do is because the horizon is level in this one.

Have any of you had any experience with the 105/4 AIS Micro? Bjorn rates it very highly.
Sometimes when I'm out in the woods with my 105/2.5 AIS I try to use it for some closeups and, well, it's a challenge w/o tubes.

Gosh, there's a plethora of 105mm MF lenses out there:

105/1.8
105/2.5
105/2.8 Micro
105/4 Micro

How's the 105/4 micro at infinity? Some macro lenses are stellar at infinity.

The MFNAS keeps on rolling . . .

Had the 105 F4 Micro. I thought it was better at other things than it was as a micro lens. It definitely was not in the class as the 55 2.8. I tried it with the PN-11 and quite frankly I thought the 105 2.5 looked better than it did with that setup.


On D700 at infinity my 105mm f/4 AIS micro is quite weak at f/4 but very good stopped down, I don't have samples at infinity, just some close up where I find it very sharp with good bokeh.

Hi Claus,
paying for the Upload & Sell Membership via Paypal worked very easy and troublefree for me.
Maybe you can contact Fred Miranda and clear the issues.
In the meantime - posting pictures hosted elsewhere (flickr is just one example) is pretty easy.
Vi ses, Georg.

Need your advice guys... I have all the lenses I need and even more... but I have a chance to purchase a 180/2.8 AI - obviously non ED version with $200. It has very clean glass but with some marks on the body, some little scratches, etc... What would you do?

I have one in my collection Mahai and it is sharp and has good contrast. It is very similar to the 135 2.8. If the glass is clean and aperture blades are good I would say "go for it"

These two pictures illustrate what a wonderful lens that 28mm f/2.8 AI-s is. Crazy sharp up close.
At work I was asked to take pictures of a damaged roller. I lens I grabbed was the 28!!!!

Great work James!

Many thanks to all who commented on the overexposed bridge - I really appreciate your kind words!

James, oh yes, I've tried a B&W-conversion - it just didn't float my boat

Btw, I've tried to get more out of the original NEF-file with Adobes latest wonder-software, but finally posted a conversion done in 2003 or so with MacBibble. From time to time I have to work with old files and usually the much improved Raw-converters will help me to get more out of "vintage" NEF's.

These are 50mm Series E on Nikon FE-2. I'm not at all a landscape photographer but apart from these (which I shot in September on Tri-X film and am still scanning in) I'm mainly shooting children's portraits for a bit of Christmas money and I can't post those or nudes (ditto). So Scottish landscapes it is!
