Trying to channel Philippe with this shot.

Still with the 400 5.6 ED. Thanks folks for comments on the pics with this lens posted yesterday. Curtis, having carried the 2kg Sigma 150-500 around for the last couple years in my quest for birding, the 400 AIS seems a relief. And is sharper

WOW samy, really love that shot!

We had some fog this morning. Seemed a good enough excuse to be a bit late to the studio - so I took the long way.

Like them both Jeff, but for really different reasons. First one for the color, the second for capturing the moment.

+1 Jeff. These are both very nice.

50mm f1.2 ai-s @f5.6 (D700)

Not sure this colour photography lark is ever going to catch on to be honest

Where is this bridge in relation to the "Locks of Love" bridge in Paris? My wife and I honeymooned in Europe and we have a pair of locks on the bridge. I would post the photo, but its not a MF lens, even though the shot was taken manually.

Headed back to Conowingo Dam this morning. The first is a shot of the scene there. Most of the birds are at the far bank of the river. Eagles were aplenty today. The setup is the 500 F4P and the TC301 on a gitzo tripod. Took this with the 20 3.5 UD.

The eagle shot is with the 500 + TC301 = 1000mm.

I just bought a 85 1.8 HC.
First shot with it :



You can only resist the siren call of Nikkor for so long Philippe...

I imagine the time you spent with Nikki motivated you to buy this particular lens. I loved the work you did with Nikki so this addition to your kits delights me. Your modest kit now goes from 28 f/2.8 AI-s to 50 f/1.8 AI-s to 85 f/1.8 H-C to 180 f/2.8 AI-s. Not too bad! I don't think your kit of Zeiss lenses will feel threatened by these humble Nikkors and we'll have the pleasure of even more photos from your discerning eye. Wonderful!

And congratulations on finding an H-C version of the 85. I finally settled for the earlier H version since finding an H-C with the Nikon AI conversion kit was near impossible. Well done.


Thanks a lot, Curtis. Yes the time I spent with Nikki definitively motivated me to buy that lens. it's a wonderful piece of glass with great color and contrast and a special rendering (almost like a Zeiss )

Leighton : I paid slightly less than $300 for a good shape 85 1.8 HC (without hood and without Nikon conversion ring). I have no idea if it is a good price.

Very nice Philippe. Several of the people are taking images as well. Looks like a camera club. Are the dark corners from the lens or someting in post process? I like it whatever.

I think what you call the "locks of love bridge" is the "Archevêché" bridge in the Latin Quarter (near cathedral Notre Dame). Here is a shot of that bridge with the 28 2.8 ais :

Thanks a lot Scott! dark corners are not from the lens, I used a polar filter and I added vignetting effect in PP

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Not much time to shoot between yard work and preparing the dinner for friends today, Here are a couple from the yard.

In the spirit of keeping it in the family, a heads-up that I am posting my Nikon 28 f/2.0 Ai on the BS Forum.

Got the battery all charged up and took about 50 more shots yesterday. The colors were so great, the air so crisp and clean, I ended up enjoying the walk more than taking pictures... If any of you personally knew me, you would know that is something extraordinary for me.

Again, all shots with the Series E 50mm... I love this little lens.
