Some shots from the beach - all taken this chilly sunny morning with the PC 85/2.8D wide open and hand-held:


backlit mussel - this was the only shot that showed a tiny bit of CA's when still in color


no food for this seagull, but at least some sunrays

I love these Georg. At first glance I thought the first one was a spoon.

The last one is intriguing me, the more I look at it the better I like it. Whats making the OOF points at the bottom, cool effect.

^Agreed, very cool. Looks like part of the fence?

Ah they're ok to be released. Here's what I was talking about Ben, trying to clear the heads and necks of the guitars on the floor. Handheld + shift, 45PCE

Oh my Philippe. This shot is fantastic. Great lighting, composition, shadows, etc....... Had to repost it here for all to see again.

Thank you for the comment on my snow image.

Chin, I love these two, especially the first one. No, I take that back, I like them both equally well.

Georg, very nice set of images. I too thought the first one was a spoon at first glance. Both the first and third ones here are my favorites. Nice b&w conversions.

Thank you for the comment on my snow images.

Leighton, thank you for the comment on the door image. I am still thinking about your ice on the fence post at sunset image. It is a beauty.

Leighton, Georg, Scott thanks for nice comment

Georg : that set shows your T/S lens at its very best. Love both of them but especially the last one

Chin : beautiful shots with 45 PCE, great color, very nice composition.

Philippe, love the tripod 24mm shot, très bon.

Georg, The seagull shot gets me, the last one as well with the pattern from the out of focus parts of the fence.

Chin, fantastic guitar pics.

Rafael, I like very much your ghostly runner shot, the colours are really interesting and the detail amazingly sharp.

Ray, amazing shots of Billy Ocean (though he's older than I remember him from the 80's), I love the second one especially.

Tony, brillant pano from your new 55mm, it seems really vibrant.

Philip - lovely shots from Newfoundland. The baby suit is cute but I especially like your shot 'Luke'. That 28mm sure lives up to its reputation.

Lastly thanks Leighton, Philippe, Georg, Ray and Tony for your kind works on the big sky pics. Sorry I don't have time to go back over all the fabulous pictures on the past few days.

Amazing Z :-)
Chin: Beautiful shots with 45 PCE
George: Great shot
Have today received my lens .. a Nikon 105 f2.5 Ai and a Nikon 135 f2 Ais
On nikon 135 f2 ais Showing sadly mistaken focal length in exif 35mm instead of 135mm
it is chipped but is probably not right .. aperture displays correct.
Anyone have any idea why? is it that it is wrong chip?
So, I might live with .. were in good condition ..
begins with some boring pictures maybe but have not had time to test as much
But have been out for a while and took some pictures of my dog that I put up during
evening might

Christmas is a time for family so here's my current MF "Family" taken with a borrowed 105mm f2.5.
From (physically) smallest to largest:
28mm f2.8 series E
50mm f1.2 Ai
55mm f2.8 micro Ai-S
105mm f2.5 Ai-S
35-70mm f3.5 Ai-S
75-150mm f3.5 series E
180mm f2.8 Ai-S
300mm f4.5 Ai-S

I haven't yet given the 180 or the 55 micro enough work, but the rest I manage to get onto the camera at least semi-regularly and surprisingly I really like everyone of them. A pity since I have only 1 more slot in the cameras banks for non-cpu lenses and I can see a couple of gaps in the lineup, like 85mm and a bargain but mint 400mm or 600mm (ok, dreaming a bit there).
I guess if Curtis took this shot he's need to take it with a 16mm to get them all in.

Also a quick shot with the 180mm just for good measure, I really need to go for a long walk with this beauty.

Nice to meet your family Mark, and what a handsome group they are! You better find away to mount the 180mm though.

Ronny, I don't really understand what the problem is.
That's a non CPU lens ( works like a ZF) : don't forget you have to specify lenght and aperture in the non D700 non-CPU data menu.
Look at the D700 manuel page 210.
