I had recently considered getting the 135mm 2.0 Just to see if I would really enjoy this focal length I bought a TC-14A to use on my 85mm 1.4. While it preformed beautifully, I discovered that on my D7000 it is really not a focal length that I enjoy shooting. I have the 135mm 2.8 also so I am thinking that it just isn't the lens for me. Here's a shot of my new mint TC-14A and a sample of it along with the 85 1.4

Yup, just make sure there's no space between site, the colon, and the site name. This thread is quickly catching up to the Mustang thread at the pace it's going

Go outside, drink 1/2 bottle of Cognac, take pictures and share them here


Ha, ha, ha! This is your great secret Philippe? Need to try it but with the cost of French Cognac here I'll spend very fast all my savings!

BTW I found in a shop here an unbelievable good GewurstTraminer from Alsace... Usually I go for red wine but this one is really great!

Yeah, and I could go to the museum here every day and it'd be "just another plane shot" or sit at home and it'd be just another cat shot... relax, your funk will pass. When I go out the door, I grab a camera and a bag of lenses, even though I don't know if I'll even use them, some days I don't, some days a wonderful sunset presents itself, or something. I was going to go shoot the memorial luminary tonight, but it's pouring pretty good right now, so that's pushed back till tomorrow, and then I'll also get the lights down further from there (note to self, put tripod back in car!)

Ben thank you for your support -)

Love the 2nd shot : the bike almost appears to float in the air.



thanks Leighton, Phillippe, Laura, Georg, Mark.....but it's just another bike shot. I think I'm in a photographic funk. I hate my pics. Tried switching lenses, bought a fuji EX1, thought that might shake things around - nice camera but.....nah.....it'll pass I guess.

it's missing the rectangular baffle though.

OK guys, as much as it pains me I'm going to put a few of my lenses on FM to sell. I am going to look up what I paid for each one and ask that price. I'd prefer not to have to deal with Paypal fees so sending a check would be best if possible.

I am going to keep the 85MM F1.4 as I really love that lens, and don't want to part with it. And also so I can still participate in the thread. The others I feel I can get as good a copy of later on. But my 85MM is special to me. I am also going to keep the 300MM that a special person on this thread sent to me and also keeping teleconverters.

If you are interested in any of the following lenses send me a PM and when I get back I will let you know how much I paid for it. Come the weekend I'm going to list what isn't spoken for.

35MM F1.4 Serial number 362666

105MM F1.8 Serial Number 205811

180MM F2.8 ED Serial Number 420689

75-150MM F3.5 E Series Serial number 3039862

35-70MM F3.5 Macro Serial Number 828559

Matt

I realize this may not be of interest to any of you, but I'll also be selling an 85MM F1.8D autofocus lens.

Crap!!! That is a GREAT list of lenses! It is so sad that you are forced to sell them.
I wish I had some money laying around

Me too. Shoot me a price on the Series E 75-150 and when I am working again, if I can swing it, will more than likely pick it up from you. Hate to say that we are united in back pain, but we are. Get well soon.

Mine is about to be cheaper. I am putting up my 25-50 and 80-200/4.5 zooms as I just don't enjoy carrying around them around anymore when I am with family. I don't want them to sit unused as that's how my 25-50 got fungus in the first place. I had to pay a pretty penny to get it cleaned, but it came back as good as new, much better shape than it was before it got the fungus. (I know I know, I still have the 180/2.8 and 300/2.8...)

They are here:

I just heard the good news from Alan that Nikki is enroute to me as of today! Pretty exciting. It's been awesome seeing everything that has been shot with her over the past months and I hope to live up to those examples!!

Paul - that cloud shot is awesome, what a moment to capture.... a window to the heavens!

Paul, I like this shot a lot - the "blue hole" in the grey sky makes for an almost biblical scenery.

Matt, I'm really sorry to hear that you have to let these fantastic lenses go. I hope their future owners will make the best out of it in your sense.

Monty, I'm sure Higgs will be everybody's darling at Webex!

Raul, welcome! Love your debut-shots here, especially the street-portrait.

Ray, the shot taken with the 35/1.4 is excellent. No wonder you're loving this lens too ;-)
And regarding the 135/2 - some lens/camera-combos that work for one photog don't necessary work for another one. I for my part enjoy the D7000 with really long lenses (200mm with and without converter) or with short to medium focal lengths. I've tried several 105's and the 135/2 on the D7k too, but it felt just not right.
I'm glad you've found it out before buying the 135/2!
