Thanks for the kind words.

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

Kevin, your roof-detail is really great! Love the colors, your choice of framing, the light - good job

Mike, welcome and thanks for sharing your breathtaking Aurora-pictures!

Sam, welcome! I like your excellent shallow-DoF-dog-portraits a lot.

John, love the long-distance landscape. The rust looks pretty good too ;-)

Americo, very nice bokeh-play!

Kenny, I just can't see enough meerkat-pictures! Well done portraits - thanks for sharing your film-shots.

Scott, Peter, Leighton, Jose and Mark - thanks for taking the time to comment on the diver (or the vintage fishing gear, Peter).
The flare on the diver shot looks a bit pale in my B&W-conversion, but I think I'll leave the image as it is.

I'm looking to replace my 28mm f/3.5 ai-s for landscape work on a D800E; field curvature is too severe, even stopped down to f/8-11. I'm trying to decide if a 28 f/2.0 will work for me but I'm having a hard time finding any examples of the edges stopped down. Can anyone who owns this lens post an image that gives a clear indication of corner performance at f/8 with a close foreground (field curvature on the 3.5 is only a problem on shots where the foreground is only a few feet away).

Welcome to FM! This thread is for sure a good place to ask.
Rafael ("rafaelcasd") has - as far as I know - a D800 and a 28/2 Ais. Maybe he can answer your question or post some shots. In my experience (with 12MP-DSLRs) field curvature is not very dramatic on the 28/2, but I shoot at close range and from f/2 to f/4 most of the time.
Best of luck, Georg.

Some images taken today:

Snow and sun - hurray! I've shot this with the lens stuck in a railing and could kick myself for cutting off the lower part of the jetty :-(

The first shot is for sure a post card. Simply excellent shot. The last one is my favorite because it has that vintage photo look. Nicely done Georg!

Americo I really like the bokeh in your cat photo
Mike I just wanted to welcome you to the forum. You shots are a wonderful way to introduce yourself!
Sam a big welcome to you as well. You have a beautiful dog!
Kevin it looks like you have gotten the hang of the 28mm E. I really hope that you enjoy using the lens!
Kenny I really like your meerkat shots and on film non the less! Terrific
John your use of the 400mm is amazing. What a beauty! The rust is quite nice as well!

Thanks for it! I thought I would be using the 80-200 more, but nope... I need to cut down that focusing screen, its tough with the Series E 28mm to nail focus at bigger apertures.

Thanks Scott, Georg, Leighton, Tony, Mark, Ronny, Jose, Peter, Ray, Paul and Laura for the comments and and tips on the b&w conversions.

Ronny, really nice shadow work.

Jose, the flowers after the rain are beautiful.

Mark, great shots from Bregenz, love the gull line-up.

Anthony, nice ones from Paris.

Georg, "tiny green stuff" wide open is really nice. The "old town" shots are beautiful. "Snow and sun" is excellent and the framing sure works for me.

Paul, the composition, colors and lighting of the dock photo are terrific.

Americo, great bokeh and best wishes to your daughter.

Chuong, nice one of your daughter with the 16mm.

Pburke, love the old film shots!

Scott, beautiful capture of the gate and wall.

Tony D. wonderful shots of Chihuly's beautiful art.

Peter, "Heaven in every bite" is a great capture.

Ray, very pretty panorama. As with all of your photos, the colors are excellent.

Kevin, great colors in your flower shot and I really like the composition of the building with the interesting angle.

Mike, welcome and gorgeous aurora shots. Can you send that down south for a few weeks?

Sam, welcome and wonderful shot of Jake with the 50mm.

John, great mountain shot and I love how the 105mm renders the colors and contrast in your rust shot.

Ken, love the meerkats with the F100. Great camera.

Philippe, lovely b&w's.

Here are a few more shots from the Rarity Mountain exit on the Kentucky-Tennessee border. I discovered this quite by accident on one of my trips to Ohio, Now I stop there every time I have an opportunity to pass by.

With the 24mm 2.8
