First test shots of the newly arrived 28-50mm f/3.5 ais on my preferred "test chart" at infinity, already becoming boring but at least not so boring as a real test chart

Firstly a 4 vertical shots pano at 28mm

4 vertical shot pano.
D600 + 28-50mm f/3.5 at 28mm, f/8 at 1/500s, ISO 100, hand held.



Then a 6 vertical shots pano at 50mm:

D600 + 28-50mm f/3.5 at 50mm, f/8 at 1/400s, ISO 100, hand held.


This zoom is pretty good from f/5.6 to f/11, peak at f/8-11.
At f/3.5 - 4 borders at FX (D600) are soft.
Bought it cheap (< USD 150.00 including shipping to Brazil - thank you Chuong!!)

It would be perfectly matched with a 50-135 or 75-150 for travel light.

One more macro shot with the 105 f/1.8 AI-s with two tubes. I love doing this kind of work.


The focal plane is so narrow when shooting with tubes that finding focus by turning the focusing ring is impossible. In fact, using the green light is impractical so I relied on the viewfinder to tell me when the image was in focus. I gently rock back and forth until I get what I want and then trip the shutter. It works...



Stunning image Curtis!



Very nice Curtis. Wonderful colors and detail.

Jose, congrats on the new 28-50. I thing you will really like this lens. I us it as you suggest for walk-around paired with the 105 2.5.

Two quick shots from this sunny morning (the sun is gone now):

D700, 24/2Ai at f/5.6 - university hospital (in this case the pathology)

Looking at these and many other shots I have to conclude that too many of my pictures are too closely framed - lot's of room (pun intended) for improvement ;-)



Georg, I like the water in this first image. Looks very nice in b&w.

Got to shoot a little last Thursday, shooting for a co-worker who wanted a shot of a tree that is blossoming pink (still working on that one). This shot was a surprise to me. It isn't in focus and you really cannot tell what it is, but I like the abstract.

Series E 28mm, free-lensed for light leak affect. This is nearly SOC, all I did was color correct for exposure.

Thanks Ronny.

Here is the blossoming tree my coworker loves.

First shot is with the Series E 28mm. Either I have an excellent copy or the so-called reviewers that rate this so low are out of their minds.

Second is with the Series E 50mm

Jose - Nice shot of the Amphitheater.

Ronny - This is one of the uses that's right up the 180's alley, candid street shooting, well done.

Kevin - Very nice shot of what appears to be a dandelion, love these kinds of images. I also like the tree.

Beautiful flowers Kevin!

Thanks Reagan, but if you someday decide to sell your 25-50/4, depending on the price, I would be interested

I have fallen so far behind here, and I am unable to contribute as well! I sadly sold my last Nikkor, in order to survive a few bills, and now, I am in the process of selling my Nikon D700, and going analogue, as a way to drive myself insane, and to learn the methods of the ancients! The best news is, I will be teaching my daughter for her photography course during her recuperation, before returning to normal school! I will definitely return here often, in order to learn more as well, since I am far away from having an extent knowledge of photography! thanks everyone for everything, and keep on trucking, er, photographing! -Americo

Thanks all. You are correct Leighton, that is a dandelion. I have another shot that is more recognizable, but I prefer the one I posted.
