Some more lunch time shots with the Series E 28mm f/2.8

Nailing focus is difficult with this lens, but I am figuring it out.

I thought while I'm enjoying the lack of Java on my machines (all of you should have Java disabled on every OS you have for the near term) I'd post some pics from today - a rare day here in the PNW as it was cold, dry, and sunny with lots of fresh snow in the mountains.

400/5.6 ED AI + CPL, hand held. Could/should be sharper than this, but you get what you can.

Enjoy -

John

Need some more rust images. Found these corroding railings and I could not resist.
105/2.5 AIS at MFD and wide open. It's not super sharp, but sharpness ain't everything there is to make an interesting image.

Great shots, John. We do need some more rust images.

For my Aurora work I use either / both D300 & D700 with several different MF Nikkor's. 24mm /2, 28mm /2, 35mm /1.4, 50mm /1.4, or the Noct 58mm /1.2

58mm is about as long as I care to go and I prefer not to go any wider than 20mm.

I also have many other MF in the bag. Manual focus is the only way I can feed my "fast glass" habit. Nobody wants them because it takes a bit longer to get the picture.

handheld Nikon D700, Nikkor 85mm 1.4 AIS plus sunlight, nothing more, as most of my photo's, hence the need for a crop! xD

Welcome Mike - you've definitely come to the right place.

Our opening statement is "My name is (Peter) and I'm a Nikon MF junkie" - we're still working on our version of the 12 Step Plan!

Leighton, Georg - thanks for the kind comments.

I used to spend a lot of time trout fishing and have plenty of fly gear. Lately I've dabbled with fishing for small gamefish using lures - without much success - on our magnificent estuary. I don't have a boat so have to fish from sandbanks on the incoming or outgoing tides but, as they say, othere are no bad days fishing!!

Georg - I love your photos of your fishing gear. That should start a whole new topic here! Also a good shot of the diver.

Ray - I'm glad you saw your Mom. Mine died just short of her 88th birthday in 2010 but she'd had Alheimer's for the previous 4 years and had no life at all.

Scott - thanks. The stalls are quite interesting and offer some unusual food.

Kevin - you're getting a lot out of the E lens and showing that it is probably underrated.

MIke - love the aurora - must be awesome to see.

Sam - Jake looks great. Is that adoration or anticipation of a treat?

Thanks for the kind words.

Sadly, I am addicted to Aurora, Alaska, and fast glass.

Welcome Mike, fantastic way to introduce yourself. You've landed on the best Nikon MF lens thread on the internet. Don't hesitate to join in the conversation, and I'm sure we'd love to see more from your part of the world.
