All of the talk about the 85mm 1.4 AIS I had to get out today for some shots of NMFL's Monty you MUST keep this lens. It is a real gem!






Ray, this first one is a real beauty. Nicely done.

Just a quick note that the 400mm 3.5 with the TC16a does work well enough for the D800 but is not as sharp as the same lens with the TC300.

Here is an secretary bird with the TC300 on a D3

And you didn't use any sharpening in post? WOW!



Rafael, your bird images are fantastic.

Thank you Samy, Reagan, Curtis, Jeff, and Tony for the winter scene comments. Since the weather forecast is calling for it to continue, I will be posting more images of the same.

Don't know whether to damn Phillippe - or thank him. He forced me to buy the 24mm PCE then he returned it and moved on....and here I am still stuck on it.

As much as I like the woman walking down the street shot, this one really drew me in.

–Tony



Thanks Tony - took about 30 shots of that bike - was obsessed with it for some reason.

Thank you too Curtis - yes the 24mm PCE was a bit rich for my blood too. I sold 5 AF lenses, the Olympus OMD and the Fuji XE1 to pay for it (and the Zeiss 85mm). I ended up a little bit ahead - and I've cleared the shelves for the next purchase - god help me. I'm very interested in the new zeiss 55mm - but 3000 euros is just out of my league.

Crazy weather, we had a snow storm that left an inch or two this morning, then it all melted followed by a rain shower a little while ago. And then this rainbow popped out with the end of it right in our lane, I haven't see one with this intense colors in a long time.

Very nice. I am about 125 miles east of you, and we have had rain all day, with as few rounds of sleet. No photo opportunities here today...

Thanks David, Monty and Ray.

David, I thought you were in Richmond?

EDIT: I just looked again and you said 125 miles, NOT 25 miles like I thought I saw!

I think he's telling you that they're not happy you went over to AF lenses.

I know it is all in good fun
I'm sure I will have a lot of fun with it.

I'll tell you one thing, a D800 with a grip and a 70-200 is one HEAVY pig

At one time I had a D70 and the 80-200 f2.8 ED and I ended up selling the lens because it was so big I didn't use it very much at all. But it did take wonderful images!
