old town - D3s, Ai 35/1.4 at f/5.6

The first shot is for sure a post card. Simply excellent shot. The last one is my favorite because it has that vintage photo look. Nicely done Georg!

Americo I really like the bokeh in your cat photo
Mike I just wanted to welcome you to the forum. You shots are a wonderful way to introduce yourself!
Sam a big welcome to you as well. You have a beautiful dog!
Kevin it looks like you have gotten the hang of the 28mm E. I really hope that you enjoy using the lens!
Kenny I really like your meerkat shots and on film non the less! Terrific
John your use of the 400mm is amazing. What a beauty! The rust is quite nice as well!

Thanks for it! I thought I would be using the 80-200 more, but nope... I need to cut down that focusing screen, its tough with the Series E 28mm to nail focus at bigger apertures.

Thanks Scott, Georg, Leighton, Tony, Mark, Ronny, Jose, Peter, Ray, Paul and Laura for the comments and and tips on the b&w conversions.

Ronny, really nice shadow work.

Jose, the flowers after the rain are beautiful.

Mark, great shots from Bregenz, love the gull line-up.

Anthony, nice ones from Paris.

Georg, "tiny green stuff" wide open is really nice. The "old town" shots are beautiful. "Snow and sun" is excellent and the framing sure works for me.

Paul, the composition, colors and lighting of the dock photo are terrific.

Americo, great bokeh and best wishes to your daughter.

Chuong, nice one of your daughter with the 16mm.

Pburke, love the old film shots!

Scott, beautiful capture of the gate and wall.

Tony D. wonderful shots of Chihuly's beautiful art.

Peter, "Heaven in every bite" is a great capture.

Ray, very pretty panorama. As with all of your photos, the colors are excellent.

Kevin, great colors in your flower shot and I really like the composition of the building with the interesting angle.

Mike, welcome and gorgeous aurora shots. Can you send that down south for a few weeks?

Sam, welcome and wonderful shot of Jake with the 50mm.

John, great mountain shot and I love how the 105mm renders the colors and contrast in your rust shot.

Ken, love the meerkats with the F100. Great camera.

Philippe, lovely b&w's.

We have a little storm rolling through today, so I stopped on the way into work and shot this. 8 shot pano with the 55mm 1.2.

Tony, nice pano of the ominous sky. My son decided to go surfing when that storm was rolling in. Here's a b&w of him out in the heavy chop.

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.

John, nice rust, love rust, good rust, more rust....... Nice image.

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.



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!


Welcome aboard Mike. Very nice image.

Jake the Dog - 50 mm f1.2 AIS wide open







Sam, welcome to you as well, and what a lovely dog. Two new people in a row, I'm not sure that's happened before.

Ditto to what I just said to Mike!

+1 Sam. Welcome aboard. Nice looking dog.

Thanks Scott - I have an even better image taken with a MF lens, but alas it is made by Voigtlander . . . .

After yesterday the Voigtlander 90/3.5 CV might just replace my 105/2.5 AIS - whew! There I said it. Never thought I would say such a thing. Not a knock on the 105/2.5 - it's still a great lens, but the CV is just a little sharper, lighter and focuses much closer all of which comes in handy. It's just not 105mm which is a shame.

Snow and sun - hurray! I've shot this with the lens stuck in a railing and could kick myself for cutting off the lower part of the jetty :-(
D3s, 28/3.5PC at f/11


...behind the old town-wall... D3s, PC 85/2.8 D, 3 horizontal shots stitched, about 1.5 degrees of tilt



Wow Georg. Both of these are terrific! Beautifully done.

Ray, that 16mm is perfect for the D7000!

Today I went out packin' but used nothing but AF... I hang my head in shame



Probably Oloong (not sure of the spelling) did not want her image taken with that AF glass either.

Thank you Leighton. It's really good on full frame as well if you get the right prospective

+1 on Leightons comment! That aside John, you cited some good reasons to go with that "other" brand. My regret is that if you are using it instead of the Nikon 105, you will post less here on this thread.
