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


Thanks Jose. Yes, I did try the order that you suggested, as you can see, stunning results. I guess really it was your suggestion and Tony's lens, I just did the monkey-work of pushing a button. Thanks again for your help.

Great shots Leighton. I like the way you are getting the light on your subjects lately.
Mark, I think TC's are not considered tubes. Someone correct me if I am wrong. ...but the details are sharp.


Hi Chuong,
It was 49mm of tubes and the TC on top just to get every bit of magnification I could. Next step is to add a reversed lens on the outfit, but then I think the maximum focus distance would be inside the lens and that would just be silly.

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.

I don't think I can keep up but many thanks to all who commented on my Namibian pic! Amazing place and hard to go wrong there....
Forgive me for anything I've missed but just a few mentions:
Ronny - loved your dog shot - real atmosphere about it
Leighton - particularly liked the B&W shots - again, great feel to them
Jeff -surfer in the sun very striking
Laura - great eye, but to the garage my favourite....
Thanks again everyone, Lizzie

We took our grandaughter to the Transportation Museum, so the camera went along.

I got this pic outside, too cold to stay out long!

I hate seeing pics from this lens because it reminds me of how stupid I was for selling that little gem.

John - I like your sign shot. Is that at a train station?

Scott - Great shot of the cobblestone house. You were brave to be out there shooting!

Monty - Excellent work with the 85mm. The first one from the party is my favorite.

James - Beautiful colors and detail!

The pic of the sign is the front of this engine at the Train Museum.







This pic also taken with the 105mm f1.8, it was too cold to change lens!

Laura - you certainly hang out in some interesting places. Very nice images.

Scott - that looks like a seriously cold farm. Glad it's summer here! Great pic.

Monty - you have mastered that lens. When do you expect the PCE?

James - another excellent comp.

Another experiment - this time a negative copied using the D200 and the 105 2.5 with tubes. My set up was very primitive which probably accounts for the blur on the right. Tri X original with Spotmatic and 50mm Super Takumar

played with the 50mm f1.8 ais today. Took the same pic of the ship with the zeiss 35 f2 - posted it on the zeiss thread - it's amazing how well the 50 mm compares.

I don't know about the Zeiss 35/2, Ben, but I opine that it may look better if taken with the 24PCE. You could create a shift pano easily; get that cruise ship and everything else in 3 shots, stitch 'em real easy no worries...

Scott that winter shot is nicely done, almost looks like b/w
Peter, great old picture. I don't know why right side is OOF. Was it taken with a T/S lens?
Ben, I like a lot #3 but my fav is #4. Love this kind of street shots.

Phillippe - I know you like those sort of shots - you take them yourself. I'm just copying you, but then, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I really loved your - Place de la Carrière pic - you didn't post it here. I didn't put a comment on flickr because it had so many already I thought it would just be lost in the crush - but it was a wonderful PCE shot.

Chin - it is very wrong of you to wind me up over the 24 PCE - you know I have no resistance. lol. none at all. And if Phillippe doesn't stop I'll end up in the poor house.
