Great shots, John. We do need some more rust images.

For my Aurora work I use either / both D300 & D700 with several different MF Nikkor's. 24mm /2, 28mm /2, 35mm /1.4, 50mm /1.4, or the Noct 58mm /1.2

58mm is about as long as I care to go and I prefer not to go any wider than 20mm.

I also have many other MF in the bag. Manual focus is the only way I can feed my "fast glass" habit. Nobody wants them because it takes a bit longer to get the picture.

handheld Nikon D700, Nikkor 85mm 1.4 AIS plus sunlight, nothing more, as most of my photo's, hence the need for a crop! xD

Welcome Mike - you've definitely come to the right place.

Our opening statement is "My name is (Peter) and I'm a Nikon MF junkie" - we're still working on our version of the 12 Step Plan!

Leighton, Georg - thanks for the kind comments.

I used to spend a lot of time trout fishing and have plenty of fly gear. Lately I've dabbled with fishing for small gamefish using lures - without much success - on our magnificent estuary. I don't have a boat so have to fish from sandbanks on the incoming or outgoing tides but, as they say, othere are no bad days fishing!!

Georg - I love your photos of your fishing gear. That should start a whole new topic here! Also a good shot of the diver.

Ray - I'm glad you saw your Mom. Mine died just short of her 88th birthday in 2010 but she'd had Alheimer's for the previous 4 years and had no life at all.

Scott - thanks. The stalls are quite interesting and offer some unusual food.

Kevin - you're getting a lot out of the E lens and showing that it is probably underrated.

MIke - love the aurora - must be awesome to see.

Sam - Jake looks great. Is that adoration or anticipation of a treat?

Thanks for the kind words.

Sadly, I am addicted to Aurora, Alaska, and fast glass.

Welcome Mike, fantastic way to introduce yourself. You've landed on the best Nikon MF lens thread on the internet. Don't hesitate to join in the conversation, and I'm sure we'd love to see more from your part of the world.

Sam, welcome to you as well, and what a lovely dog. Two new people in a row, I'm not sure that's happened before.

Ditto to what I just said to Mike!

Some more lunch time shots with the Series E 28mm f/2.8

Nailing focus is difficult with this lens, but I am figuring it out.

Georg, what a "surreal" diver!

Mike, awesome aurora and corona borealis!

Thanks Leighton, Georg, Scott, Ray, Laura and Ben for your comments on my Bregenz pics.

Soma amazing shots in the last couple of days however Ray and Americo, firstly I wish your family well and strength to recover quickly. I am glad you have both had a moment still to share your nice work.

Peter, I like your set from the food market, I wish I could find biltong here.
Tony - wonderful set with Nikki, especially the last one of the glass, the blue "reeds"
Chuong - great piece of your daughter, Rapunzel.
Georg - brilliant of the diver, especially with the metal background. That is some serious diving equipment for cold water.
Paul - I really like your last set, especially the portrait aspect shot of the clouds over the church.
Kevin - great to see someone else putting the 28mm Series E through it's paces. I like the output of the lens but struggle also with using it. Your shot of the building with it is pure class.
John - As always 2 stunning shots of such different subjects.
Mike & Sam - welcome to the thread. Sam, Dog shots as nice as yours will always get a warm welcome from the people here, his or her expression is priceless.
Mike - You are only increasing my desire for the wonderful noct lens. A couple of amazing shots of some of natures best artwork. Oh to own a noct, and live where it gets dark at night.
