Ronny, very nice! So that is the standard tc-200 tele convertor? Did not know it was compatible with the 180 2.8 ED AI-s?!

The tc-201 is also compatible.

Nice shot Ronny!

Peter B. love the race car series.
John the 400 is quite a lens. Hold it's own against the latest lenses!
Curtis I love the vista on HWY 1 I remember that house in the B&W from before
Philip what a beautiful child
Chin the time lapse is really cool.
Peter great work on the "fisherwomen" The cyclist are really sharp!
Ron the vignette is first rate.
Ronny I have a TC-200 and never use it. Gonna have to dig it out!

Yeah, nice shot Ronny. I once stacked two tc-200's and a tc-14b together with my 300mm f2.8 AIS. The result was not so good

I heard a story today about a season when it isn't snowing, but I think it's just a myth.

I'm a bit concerned that this thread might become Virginia centric. I don't know if this is all Leighton's doing but it is hard to miss the trend. Are these your bacon customers?

Welcome John. Leighton has been rather lonely out there in the Shenandoah Valley with nothing much to do when not castrating sheep...

Hilarious Mark!

Of course, this is something that is easy for someone from California to laugh about. I remember the months of hard winter and there wasn't much fun about it. I imagine that is especially true when as a skier you're kept from the magnificent slopes so close at hand. I've heard a rumor that Spring will come, even to Switzerland...

Well, it is Nikki reporting time. I'm a bit embarrassed to say that yesterday the 24 f/2.8 N.C. AI'd took center stage. Of course, when showing off a long coast, a wide lens will be better for the task than a medium telephoto. I hope folks will indulge me. I seem to remember there was some grumbling when Scott had the temerity of using a wider lens at the Kodak museum when Nikki was in his hands. Don't worry, Nikki will have her chance...


Taken with the 24 from an overlook above Muir Beach. During World War II the military installed large guns to protect San Francisco from invasion. There were three guns mounted at this location, though now all that is left are concrete enclosures facing the Pacific Ocean. But that was not what drew me to this location.

Another with the same lens from above the homes overlooking Muir Beach. We're looking south toward San Francisco.


And here is a shot from the same location taken with the 85 f/1.8 H.C. AI'd.

Here is another with the 24 f/2.8 N.C. AI'd. This is a campsite with cabins overlooking the Pacific Ocean. They're not cheap but the view is spectacular...

And a different orientation with the same lens looking north toward Stinson Beach.


Looking down at the beach with Nikki...


Then on the beach... this image converted in Silver Efex Pro 2.


As Ron suggests, the options are quite overwhelming. But it is fun to play.

Thanks Jeff - on review I'm convinced this lens has to either be on a tripod to ensure sharp focus, exposed at >1000th or handheld by Curtis! Because it's light for its length it's too easy to get a bit of shake in there!


I tried hand holding the 500 Reflex but it was a no go. Part of that is the focal length but the other part doubtless is the shortness of the lens. It really doesn't provide much ballast when mounted on the D700. I have used it a couple of time with a monopod but I think a tripod is definitely the way to go. Here is a shot I took last summer with the 500 C version. The keywords say 400 but it was the 500. I was using both that day and forgot to change the keywords.



I told you so - lovely photo, Curtis
