After I left my field I went down the road, to my often photographed, tree. It was 91ºF at my house today! I am so not ready for it to be summer, so I am hoping that this just lasts a couple of days. The rest are of the little flowers outside of my work. The setting sun gave them a nice, warm glow. Again, all were shot with Nikki.

P.S. I will get you the stuff for the blog tonight, Leighton!

Very nice series with Nikki Tony. I like the OOF play in this one.

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

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.


I think you need something in the 400mm range . . . .

NO. NOOOOO.... nooo....

Was thinking about the 400/3.5 several times, asked possible sellers, decided to wait...

My 400mm range is covered by:
af-s 200/2.0 with af-s tc-20eIII, and af-s 300/2.8 vr with af-s tc-14eII (all of which I got used at very reasonable prices).

If I lust for "dumb" experiments, I usually think about a tiny Nikon 1, and the ft-1 which will work with both the 200 and the 300, and with the tc even...

So no, I don't need a 400/3.5. No. nooo. not even a 400/5.6. I don't...

well, maybe a 500/4 mf, rofl

Yes, the 500/4P is on my short list. Still working with a local guy to arrange a meeting . . .

But then you agree not to need a 400ish lens

Thanks to everyone for the comments on the D600 and 16mm 3.5. Here is the second part of my first outing with the D600. This time I used the 300mm 4.5 EDIF. One extreme to the other

Man, those are awesome! The flower is my favorite. Seems you have slid right into the D600, you certainly are making things look easy.

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.

What I'm curious about Ray, is when did Leighton drive down to Florida? I see you caught him with the 300...


Definitely looking good Ray. I think that camera will take very good care of you, even as you take very good care of it. Pretty sweet images you've been posting.
