Gabriel I really enjoyed seeing your photos from Cuba. It's not often we get a first hand look into everyday life in the country. Thank you for posting, however this thread asks that you limit your photos to four. This is for those who do not have high speed connections.

Curtis told me he was really busy with family and the organization he volunteers with. And Monty's just taking a little break.

This is an outstanding image! Reminds me of our friend Don in Italy.

I was a little surprised at the size and weight. I thought it was smaller. It has besutiful glass. I hope to get out to shoot with Nikki Sunday and Monday.

sensational set Leighton. That pink sky in #2 and 4 is so evocative. But my favourite is Waylon at his breakfast (you added the vignetting as usual yes?)

Sir, why I feel that you are not telling us the truth?

They are following a very severe detoxification cure of MF Nikkors. Doctors are not sure if this cure will succeed but they are trying harder...

Mr.Z: Do you know that I do not want to but this lens? Why are you tempting me?

I was also pleasantly surprised. Is it much small than the 1.4?

Thanks Ben, yea, I added the vignette, sometimes I like to concentrate the focus on the main subject. Although I DO go overboard at times.

hang on a sec....I'm the victim here .... I got suckered in good and proper. (Actually, after selling all that stuff I ended up ahead).

Mihai - reisstance is futile. It's big and very fiddly but you'll have a lot of fun with it.

It works perfectly in that shot - I was just checking that with all the snow and glare it wasn't a characteristic of that lens - although I knew - it is very artistic vignetting, not optical defect vignetting.

Ben, love the second dawn-shot. It took me a while to realize that you were talking about 43 degrees on the Celsius-scale - take care.

Laura, beautiful B&W-moon!

Leighton, my fav from your set is Waylon. Beautiful B&W. Is he the father of all lambs?

Ron, wow, now that's a howitzer ;-) Congrats - can't wait to see some results...

Gabriel, very nice set from Cuba! My favs are "Going home... and "Staircase" - great work.
I'm really sorry to read about your retreat from this thread (and sorry for my lacking English).

Philippe, the cyclist-sign is fantastic! I'm having a hard time looking at your and Ben's fabulous pictures taken with the 24/3.5 PC-E and than looking at the current prices for this lens in europe
Please keep the images coming
