I'm recently back from a trip to Namibia - didn't use the manual lenses as much as I'd hoped simply because of lack of time to swap lenses - the light comes and goes so quickly. But here's one with the 24/2.8 AIS on the D800e.

Hi Lizzie. Welcome back. Very nice image from your trip. The quality of the lighting is exceptional.

Great shots Leighton especially this one.

Some more from Monitcello if you don't mind. Since the user of Nikki is allowed more then the recommended 4 images, I'm going to take advantage of that here.

There is a sort of underground tunnel system that runs under the main house and goes out beyond on both sides. The walls are lined with brick and stone with a plaster coating over most of it. There's also little windows at ground level for light.

Down in these tunnels are all sorts of rooms off to the side. Some were storage rooms, and some were for more important reasons such as the wine cellar and beer cellar!

These are all very nice Leighton. I especially like these two. What a great old house!

Tony, I like the simplicity of your first shot from work. One thought, you could put the Pizza on the plates and cook 2 birds with one stone.

One more from the 55mm, this time with tubes (and I think a TC 1.4, though I forgot to note which shots did and didn't have this added). Check the detail this lens captures in the feathers.

[edit - added 2 100% crops of this photo and the one of the amber just to show the detail of this lens with tubes.]


Mark, that 55 2.8 sure does capture nice fine detail.

Thanks Leighton, Mark, Reagan, Ray, Ben, Jeff, Chuong, Tony, Peter and David for the very kind comments.

Ronny, I never get tired of looking at your dog shots, please keep them coming, they are excellent;

Jeff, awesome "back lit" shot with D800 + 180/2.8;

Leigton, another great set with Nikki!

Mark, good examples of what details 55/2.8 can reveal. Did you use body + TC + tube + lens (in this order)?

Hi, no time with family in town, will catch up later, hope all is well with you. Went to a mexican restaurant with the D3 and the 35mm 1.4, they have this wall of female portraits. Post processed with Nik film effects, at 1.4 with existing light.

Reagan, My best 85mm is an H, not an HC or K, guess it is just sample variation. Buy an H, it will be about $200. Multicoating with a shade is not that big a difference.

This is one of those photos you can post-process in infinite ways and it looks interesting regardless (to me).

David - Thank you!

Mark - I wish we could cook both! That 55mm is sharp, isn't it? You can send it back anytime you want!

Philip - Thank you, it's great to be shooting MF again!

Scott - Thanks for the comment.

Laura - Looks like a great night out. I love your "To The Garage" shot!

Rafael - I agree with Leighton, I like the first one better.

My MF lenses are in route... Man, talk about jonesing for something?! I hope they get hear tomorrow, but that is high hopes. More like Mon/Tue. I am excited for both, but that 80-200mm...drooling! It doesn't have as much reach as my old 300mm, but the clarity of the glass is several magnitudes better.
