Thanks David and Scott, good to see these old lenses still being able to compete.

Philippe - I like the second shot better.

Paul - I bet you eat A LOT of those living where you do.

Ray - Nice capture, I've enjoyed all of your holiday images.

Ian - I generally am not crazy about the "high key" look, but you pulled this one off very nicely.

Yes, I am the only vegan. You'd be surprised at the mess I can make while eating

Another shot from Christmas. A little girl and her new doggy. Shot with the D7000 and 35mm 1.4 AIS



Nice capture Ray.
That doggy looks HUGE! Bigger than Rocky and Higgs together (a couple of times )

I was out looking for a shot for this weeks assignment but came away empty handed. I did however get one of Jed that would have fit in to the last "white on white" assignment. Except, Jed's not the whitest of dogs when he's so dirty!

Let's play a wish game. Suppose you had your choice of any 4 Nikon manual focus lenses. Which ones would you select? I don't expect Curtis to play since he already has them all

I'll play.

As it stands right now I'd have to say, the 50mm f1.2 AI-s, 85mm f1.4 AI-s, 180mm f2.8 AI-s ED, and surprise surprise...the 50-135mm f3.5 AI-s!

I wish you had of made it 5 lens, then I would probably have chosen the 28mm f2 or 2.8. I just don't shoot very wide most of the time.

Looks like all you need is the 85mm 1.4 But what happened to the 135mm F2?

I'm not that enamored with the 135 since I went to FF. The 85mm is next on my list. And while this is a "wish" list, I think I'd switch my 50 f1.2 to a Noct. I love how it handles the halos.

yeah, right, thanks for nothing Phillippe.

I like the idea of tilt and shift - I think it would open up a lot of fun effects - but then I'd have to have the tripod with me for most of that.

yeah, and I'm obsessed with the 24 1.4G......but then there's the zeiss 25 f2. And I'm very interested in their new high res lenses, like the 55 f1.4 - although they're a bit rich for my blood.

Leighton, Ray- that's why 5 lenses are no good for me - the list would have to be at least 10.

Hopeless (and broke).

Finally some Nikki pix from her time in DC... she is bundled up and heading to Leighton tomorrow. I've got about 4 or 5 sets of shots to share still which is good. I'm dissapointed in the amount of time I was able to direct to shooting with her, but between holidays, weather and work travel it was a challenge. I'm very honored to have been able to take part in this adventure. Here are some holiday snaps from around my in-law's place. All with the D600;

Great shots Tony! You have done Nikki proud and one yet to be graced by Nikki's presence, the bar is set pretty high!!!

Now just to clarify my wish list game, you must pretend that you currently own NO Nikon manual lenses. You can select any 4 Nikon Manual lenses to make up your entire collection. Which 4 would you choose

#1: 85mm f/1.4
#2: 16mm f/3.5
#3: 50mm f/1.2
#4 28mm f/2.8
#5: a real fisheye that makes a round image

The list is in order of "want"
I currently own #1,#2 and #4

In all reality I've VERY happy with the lenses I own.
My pretend list is a short one, a D4. Or in a pinch, a D800
