Good advice Peter, then Monty will have money for the 14-24 AFS as well as the 70-200. That will complete his AFS trinity

Keep the lenses, sell the car and ride the bike to the bars (in summer). In winter, stay home!

Kevin, just love your last two shots, including the arrow in the parking garage. The garage with the mural is well visualized and executed also!

Scott, the red barn in the snow is very nice. Its finally sunny here today and hope you get a break from the snow soon.

Chuong, nice equipment rust shots with the 135 f2 AI!

Kenny, very nice portraits of the mountain lion with the 400 3.5! The 400's just a tad lighter than the 500 F4P, and yes, those lenses are not hand holdable for extended periods of time.

Ron, cool new acquisition, looks like in good shape and did a great angled portrait of your dog!

Yes, I'm aware that I am 66.7% there
For now the cool 16mm will have to do the job for the wide stuff

It's been a few weeks of AF and I am starting to get the itch to put the 85mm back on
As someone here said, I can have both AF and MF lenses in my bag and they can happily coexist

Ahhh Monty's already got the itch. I just knew it

A few clicks from my alma mater, University of Maryland at College Park. This is interesting, I believe my first instance of moire!! And on a D800, not D800e. This was with the 20 3.5 UD. The football stadium was open and now I wish I had taken some shots with the 28 PC also.

The second shot shows off the ghost/flare characteristics in the 20 3.5 UD.

The third one is one of those large classrooms where as TA I kept an eye on the freshmen once upon a time There's some chemistry on the board, if its readable Laura can compare to her notes

Samy, I went to a Frank Zappa concert in Cole Field House back in the 70's, or was that the 80's.

Leighton, I think the 70's was Frank and "Mother's of Invention" and the 80's were Frank's "Weasels rip my Flesh"
I can't believe I can remember that

Two more - the Hornbake undergrad library, and the Stamp Student Union. Both with the 28 3.5 PC, using shift function.

Leighton neat memory of that place (kind of ). My first visit to Cole Field House was a see saw Terps-Blue Devils battle. Duke won by a point or two I think

Ronny, Nitro is a star on both threads
Phillip, Margo and the 105 were made for each other
Reagan, that 50 SC is a nice lens
Mark, between you and Phillipe's photos. Europe has some pretty wild outdoor parties
Kevin, I don't know why you doubt yourself that parking garage image is great Also the outside shot of it is very nice

Chuong, I love the recent railroad shots. They remind me of photos posted on TrekEarth by a fellow in Finland who shot Russian railroad cars that had unusual colors and markings on them. I tried to look for a railroad yard in the Bay Area, but where you find railcars you generally find tall fences... I'm love to do what it appears you did, and ramble around a rail yard to take close shots of all the interested details. Well done!

It must of been the 70's then. And Samy, I don't remember a whole lot about the concert, if you know what I mean.

I'm with Leighton Scott... I've very much been enjoying your rural winter scenes. Very well done. Of course, I'm happy to be in California rather than upstate New York or Oshkosh, Wisconsin...

Great looking 50-135 f/3.5 AI-s Ron. The lens doesn't often make it to my camera, but it is a lens I'll likely never sell. It performs very well. Nice pick up.

And why am I not surprised that Monty is having an 85 f/1.4 AI-s itch?

Frankly, Monty, I think a few of those lenses are priced a bit high for the market, so you'll likely have a few remaining at the end of this process, though the 85 could go. That would be a real loss because judging from your work with that lens, it is a focal length that really works for your shooting style. If it is already listed Monty you might want to consider removing it... The is such a thing as "seller's remorse..."

Paul, I like the photo of the sheets hanging on the line in the snow
Then you throw a boat dock into the same photo SEems those 3 things don't belong together
Chuong, Always like photos with the 135

One more, the only one with the 105 1.8. This sculpture was in front of the Stamp Union.

1975? Leighton wasn't that when your hair was a bit different from that Baltimore photo a few weeks back Seems like you do remember a few things through the fog
