Great capture Ron, especially with such a narrow field of view from that lens
Did you focus on a certain spot or are you that good
All we need now is a cat photo

As this lens weighs almost 8lbs it is big gimbal head on big tripod! They come towards our deck to get to the feeder. This is sort of an in between area they are coming at. The problem is they are so damn fast the shutter speed has to be really high and even then it usually is just pure luck to catch one.

Phillipe birds here will do anything for a seed. VTOL is just one little trick. Here is a perspective on size. The 200-400 and my 80-200 C Auto. As you can see hand holding is not an option.

Very nice image Ronny. The horses head is so sharp but the rest of the image has nice motion. He is looking right at you too!

OK, I understand now : It's a Brit bird......! For a moment I thought it was a GMO or something like that......

What a beautiful Lens I would pursue one if I thought I could carry it

Here's a picture taken a few minutes ago - it's snowing again;-)

Quickly taken with Nikki's sister, the Nikkor-H Auto 85/1.8 I got from Paul
I don't know if the pulsating spots did a good job on the flakes or not...


Creative and nice image!

The 25-50 f/4 AI-s has two rings, as you surely know Reagan, a larger zoom ring and smaller focus ring. On my copy of the lens the focus ring is nicely damped and the zoom ring is a tad looser. But until the lenses with a push pull combined ring, there is no slippage, so loose doesn't feel like a problem. In fact, I like the light touch required to zoom the lens in and out, as needed.

I remember some of those shots from your trip to Las Vegas. I imagine you'll make good use of your new lens. It looks like a winner.

Here's an old shot I took with my copy. I've posted it before but it shows how the lens handles flare. I was facing the sun as i shot this.



Believe it or not, this is the shot that got me interested in MF lenses and brought me to this thread.


How about that? Since I started this thread, I've not had the opportunity to stumble on the images posted here, I've witnessed them as they've appeared. But although I didn't need exposure to these images to help me make the decision to pursue MF lenses, there are hundreds of images that reminded me what the fuss is all about, and that inspired me in my own work. That, of course, is what makes this thread so great. I'm glad you found us Kevin and that you decided to jump into the conversation.
