That's a lot of babies on the ground. Bummer on having to replace the compressor, but at least it picked winter time to do it and not the summer when that would have been full of veggies.



Yea, we have just 2 more ewes to go! It really was a bummer about the compressor, even this time of year, we sell veggies year round. Fortunately, we took this week off because of lambing.

I love your moon shots. I like moon shots better when it's NOT a full moon.

Perhaps you guys can be interested in this webpage I just have found right now:
http://www.sassmannshausen.eu/lenses.html
There are several interesting comments and sample shots of MF Nikkors.

John, at least for the sample copies of the guy in that site, the 135/3.5 is better evaluated than the 135/2.8.

As I've tried to do the last two years I've collected up almost all my images taken with my MF Nikkors in 2012 and put them into one place:

Windows or something clobbered some of the jpgs for some reason so some of them are not as sharp as they really are.

Someone really needs to take all the amazing photos from this thread and put them all in one place sortable by date, place, and owner.

John



Great idea, and congrats on your splendid collection of images!

Thanks Jose, another good reference site.

SALE 3 fuer 2l? Thanks for the Denglisch lesson. I was worried my German was getting rusty after 26 years away, but it seems I'd do just fine getting around in good old Tchermany. Gesundheit, Fahrvergnuegen, Kindergarten, Schadenfreude, Hinterland, and now SALE - I still know the important vocabulary .

Ben, great perspective and lighting.
Laura, I saw that yesterday from my window and "thought" about taking a few shots. Awesome shots!

Here's a few from this morning. We had a little snow yesterday so it made everything pretty this morning. All shots taken with the 28-50mm f3.5.

Very nice Leighton,
You live in a really beautiful place. Is your chicken house a converted horse trailer?
I guess right now your Ram is busy trying to learn the names of all his new children.

That lens really makes a dreamy picture.

Great find Jose - I thought I'd found just about every site that reviewed MF Nikkors, but I guess I had not!

I hope that others will collect their images in one place for those of us to peruse.

John

Thanks Mark. The chicken house is indeed a converted horse trailer. I also made a contraption that automatically closes the door at night. The Ram will never meet his "children" as he has to be a bachelor until his services are needed next year.

Maybe those that host their photos on Flickr or other image hosting sites can put links to their profiles? I have my images sorted by lens, or at the very least put the lens data with the picture if its not included in one of my lens folders.

Thoughts?

I have all my photos organized by lenses in sets on Flickr too, so it's easy enough to find my stuff. Also I don't have any non-AI-s glass these days, so every photo I take, save for the odd iPhone shot, is with a manual focus NIKKOR!

Stupid question, can you have your photos in more than 1 set? For example, suppose i take a shot of a barn with the 50mm, can I have it in a 50mm set and say a barn set?

Thanks Leighton, one of those checking the door to make sure it was locked, and that moon caught my eye, and I forgot how tired I was

Thanks Chuong, I forgot about going to sleep after I saw it . Moonset tonight is half past midnight, so a little earlier. Hoping it's clear out tonight too, an idea just crossed my mind and it would be interesting to see if I can do this shot that's now stuck in my head.

not a stupid question, and the answer to your question is yes, you can have it in more than one set.
