My first love! Cycling. I purchased a PowerTap today. It is a way to quantify how lame I am

I've missed quite a bit. We are very sad here as my wife's great-grandfather passed last week after a 5 year battle with Parkinson's Disease. He was truly the rock in her family. Life goes on though.

Jorge, I'm really sorry to see you having to dump so many great lenses.

Leighton, the farm is looking lovely.

Elton, I like both color and B&W. Each works well in their own ways.

Ben - Nice work with the 35/2OC.

If you want even faster, put an i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz in a PC and overclock it to 5.0GHz and also add at least 16 gigs of RAM and put LR on a SSD. Now you're talking speed!


Is that what Ivy Bridge is capable of Leighton? I haven't overclocked in a couple of years. My last OC was pushing a Q6600 up to 3.94GHz on air while running dual GPU's. The machine also had 6 HDD's, and water cooling with dual radiators... I think it pulled around 850W at the wall... I ended up eventually dumping it for a lower power quad, SSD, single HDD, single low wattage GPU, and air cooling. I now hit full load at around 180W, but rarely pull more than 120.

Roy's 180/2.8 will be a nice lens. I bought my 35/1.4 from him. Never should have let it go.

I've been playing with the V1. It's a bit disappointing honestly, and it will probably go back to B&H. The video is nice, but I didn't buy it to be a video camera. The search for a competent, small digital mirrorless body continues.

Welcome to lots of new faces around here too!

BTW, here is a currently cheap 300/2.8 for any who are interested: Temptation

This looks like a great deal on a 35mm 1.4. Only 30 min left

Leighton and Samy - thanks!
Leighton, yes and no - I could have shot the same scene with a superwide as a vertical to get exactly the same perspective - just with a lot more snow in the foreground (lower half of the vertical shot).
The 28PC is well built and fairly compact. I have to get used to the aperture-mechanism.
I hope to find enough spare time to use this lens (and the 85PC too) a bit more in the coming weeks.

I took shots with the 14-24 one time that someone asked me to, and realized that I was cropping off loads of pixels to get rid of the unnecessary foreground. That's what had made me think of a PC lens.

The aperture mechanism is funky, but just a matter of getting used to. And it took me a bit to realize how to do the rotate function, you can combine that with the shift.

BTW, Leighton, do I sense an interest in the 28PC? <hint>Any time I go browsing ebay etc. there seem to be a good number of these out there. </hint>

Samy


NOOOOOOO!!!!!! I don't think.


You should. Keeps lines remarkably straight

I am so sorry that you had to sell that lens Jorge because you sure nailed that focus point. Great shot!

First test of a new to me 28/3.5PC - sorry Samy, still no shot's from the remains of the former "Heinkel-Werke".
The weather yesterday was all grey - not really hazy, but dull and flat light and it was too cold to have fun with a new lens.

28/3.5 PC shifted all the way up if memory serves - f/11, 1/60sec at ISO400, vignetting added in post (silly me)


Georg, very nice image. I did not know your last name was Buchner and that you had your own ship!

Lots of activity over the last 24 hours.

Samy, really like the composition of the P-47 image. Beautiful plane.

Monty, good to see Rocky again. Hope he and the Particle are coexisting OK.

Ben, the 200 f2 images have wonderful backgrounds.

Peter, I like the mannequins shot.

Ben (Sydney), the bike image in the road is first rate. Looks more dangerous than your skates!

Welcomes to Roland and Michael. Nice first images.

Mark, liking your Sweden series.

Chin, nice timing capturing "off the cliff"

Leighton, great door image. Are you responsible for all the additional activity the last 24 hours?

Kevin, I like the 12-12-12 images. Nice idea.

Apologies to all that I missed. Too many to comment on them all. Nice work everyone. Now I need to get off my duff and post something. Scott

As I mentioned, life moves on. As one flame is extinguished, another seems ready to take the world by storm. (All with D700+28/2)


Walking is just one more reason to watch the ipad!


Christmas lights are fun too:

Excellent portrait! this is a perfect example of what i need to understand, what is that halo like thing on the image, is this polarization? how do we avoid it?
