Ray (Ohio) - I love the two shot you have shown us. The first because I once worked for the power company. And the second because I'm now a farmer. Thanks for sharing, I really do like them.

Georg - I'll second what Ray said about the cameras. I find no difference in regular shutter mode.

Tony - You're doing great work with Nikki but....Those doll shots are creeping me out!

Leighton, you live in a land that once was referred to as "Currier and Ives" Your pics from the drive for photos a few days back.

Glad you have kicked the boot, and the power is back.


Thanks Bob, I'm blessed to be living in a beautiful area!

Those are Ray's shots John...

And they are lovely... taken with his new D600.

I grabbed this yesterday with the 135 f/2 AI-s, wide open... the laughing Buddha hanging from my mirror.



Very nice Curtis I hope you weren't driving at the time

My new D600 came yesterday about 15 min before I had to leave for work, so I had to wait until today to give this bad boy a work out. My first observation was that compared to the D7000 it felt more substantial. Weight wasn't that much more but it does feels thicker and the grip more sculpted. After a day of using the camera I was impressed at the viewfinder. It was so nice to see the focus instead of relying on the green dot. I can't believe how wide my 24mm really is, not to mention the 16mm 3.5. It is sorta like having a whole new set of lenses because they all behave so differently. I used the 16mm, 24mm, 35mm, 85mm and the 300mm and I was most impressed by the 16mm 3.5. Here are a few of the photos I took today using that beautiful fish eye.







+1 Ray

Ray, spetacular set! Liked the most these two.

Thank you, Ronny.

The 180mm is actually the next one on my wish list... for a growing collection of mf primes (infected by this thread).

Really Geat lens it is.. love it! So that's is a very good choice



Just sent money for another used lens... hmmm... easy guess:

Nikon AI-s NIKKOR * ED 180mm 1:2.8

But now my MF-setup IS complete (who believes...):
16/3.5 fish
35/2
50/1.2
105/2.5
180/2.8 on arrival
(plus a 14/2.8 sammy, and an 85mm PC-Nikkor. Does the latter "count" in this thread?)

Quite the range i normally use. But then... My 20mm is AF, and I don't have an 24mm at all. And for longer Teles... No. No. Nnnn... nno. "You GOT them, AF, but you got them.." (me to myself). So.. nnno.. nnn..aybe.

Ray - Very nice 16mm shots with your D600!
Tony - I love those burnt dolls shots.

Ahh...Good choice Roland, you're gonna love this lens! I think it's a MUST have in any MF shooters bag.

Thank you. It's just... I'm not a constant MF shooter. I shoot MF, because I like to do so every now and then - or more and more.

And it is indeed a bit redundant to have a 200/2 and a 180/2.8... but then, I can't justify af-s chubby when beeing in an MF-mood.

Thanks for the comments.

Reagan...like the red arrow. It's pointing to a dark carner...what is in the corner?
And I like the railroad shots.

Georg...love...fades away. A conceptual photo...and I like it.

Tony...your press room shots bring back so many memories. The corrigated metal floors soaked in kerosene and ink...though the newspaper presses were three stories high...these Heidelberg presses look to be wide format...is that a paper web in the lower left corner? Are you a pressman?
Love the family portrait too!

Ronny - you get your dog in such natural settings...really like the latest.

Congrats on the fisheye Ray! The first one is such a natural subject for that lens.

Curtis...Good seperation and sharpness on the Buddha

Nice find Ray...just getting out and looking can produce such amazing results.

Another nice image Jose...thanks.

Thanks Jim, the arrow was pointing to a landmark. I was on an observation deck in a state park with arrows at different locations telling you to look out that way

Quite a few Don Pettit timelapses out there but I thought this one was very well made
Watching the 8mm fisheye reminded me so much of Ryan...

Left for work a little early, with Nikki, to see if I could find any flowers in the field by my house. Turns out some idiots decided that would be a great place to dump their crap and then set it on fire! Thankfully the fire department put it out very quickly. There was an odd collection of junk, but the dolls seemed the saddest to me.
