It seems I'm about a day behind Peter on the eye front. Woke up this morning and it's very red and hard to open.

However I have 2 eyes and the other one can see some amazing photos that you've all posted in the last couple of days. That amazing rainbow from Hoppy (Leighton), great winter shot from Ray, really making that harsh light work for you, David showing that the D700 is still an awesome piece of kit along with a sharp 85mm f2, and back to Ray and his fantastico D7000 / 300mm combo along with a co-operative eagle looking very majestic.

David, you could set your D700 to crop mode but you can always crop in post production anyway to give exactly the same result and still leave yourself the full frame to play with in case you need it.

Samy, that's very interesting on the PC lens. I nearly bought one just before Christmas but chickened out at the last minute thinking I didn't really need one...and just spent a couple of days photographing buildings wishing I had one.

Here's one from Italy (Mantova). It's with the Series E 28mm which I think is a great lens for results but feels wrong somehow. It's focussed with my left eye so using the green focus dot as the viewfinder is set up for my right eye, if there is any issue witht he sharpness this is why and not the lens.




Mark, nice reflection and soft mood in this image. Well captured. Hope the eye heals soon.
Scott

Thanks everyone for the kind words about the rainbow, much appreciated.

Ray - Those Eagle shots are FANTASTIC!. It's uncanny, seems like every time you post a photo with a particular lens, it makes me lust after it.

Mark - I love how you captured the reflection in the water, well seen.

I hope by you selling the D700 only indicates that you're upgrading, and not leaving us for another?

Yes it does Kevin. It is a stellar lens that I bought off of one of our members here at the insistence of Reagan and from the great examples from Curtis. Chuong gave me a wonderful deal on this lens and every time I use it I am thankful for his generosity. Be dilagent and one will preset itself in due time.
I think that you have been doing wonderful work with the lenses that you have and you have proven that it isn't always about the lens. I haven't found any bad Nikkor lenses yet. I owe a lot to the D7000. I sold all of my Canon equipment to secure it, NO regrets here


Just wonderful pictures!

At the risk of sounding a lil' silly, that's a real uncle named Sam, and not the ... taxman, right?

Last night, with the 50 1.2 AIS
She clamours to come up
And then can't wait to get down
What gives missy?

Love the eagle shots Ray. You're definitely a first rate ambassador for the 300 f/4.5 AI-s ED-IF with shots like that! Excellent work.

Chin, another nice picture of Oolong (I hope I spelled that right). She certainly can give you the looks.

Chuong, these are all nice lenses. There are many fans of the 24 and the 50-135 on this thread. Too bad you need to part with them. Good luck with the sale.

you're kidding Curits - you want ANOTHER lens?

sorry to hear you're unwell Leighton and Mark. Get better fast - one good thing though is that the convalescence is making Leighton chattier than ever.

What will give you on the top of D7K? I mean seems a good move for Nikon but not a dramatic upgrade over D7K... Am I not seeing something important?
