Hi Peter,

Thanks for the update on the eyes. I am watching as I really do seem to be 1 day behind you so it's nice to see what I have to look forward to (or not look as the case may be).

It would be nice to have unlimited funds for sure, but for you if I remember you have a daughter over here in Switzerland? If you bought the camera here you would save over $350 on the list price in SA. (Approx 11,500 rand instead of 14,700 at today's exchange rate). Also if you do come to Switzerland and to the North part of the country if you want you are welcome to drop me a line and meet up.

Anyway, there will always be the D7200 in a couple of years time, or the D900 with 80MP or Canon will re-introduce their old mount system and we'll be rushing out to buy up as much cheap old Canon MF glass as possible.



Chris - I hope yours aren't as itchy as mine are but I'm on the mend!

Thanks for the ideas but the likelihood is that we'll visit the US later this year and I'll get my son to do my homework for me. By then I'm sure there will be lots of used D7100's available if the D600 and D800 rate of trade is an indicator.

Me thinks the Eagle is contemplating his need for 51 autofocus points on the mentioned D7100!!!


Awesome shots with that 300mm lens.

Thanks Leighton, Scott, Ray, Ben, Reagan, Ray in Ohio and Samy for your comments on the 28mm 2.8 trail photo.

Chuong, I really like the composition of your flower and vase shot.

Chin, very cool how you have the portrait of your pup blending with the background.

Ray, gorgeous flowers with the 180mm.

Jim, beautiful shot with the reversed 20mm. Good luck with your knee.

Leighton, congrats on the 28mm. It looks like a beauty!

Scott, the model train shots are very cool.

Americo, I really like the flowers (and ladybug) taken with the 28mm.

Ronny, that's quite a quiver of Z glass!

Samy, beautiful tree and leaf photos. The b&w is very nice.

Americo nice work with the 28mm2,8 especially the second one
Scott I love that second one. Nice focus
Americo the ladybug is really nice
Ronny that's some expensive Bokeh!
Samy Love the 400mm but the 105 really shines
Phillippe wonderful as usual. Great to see you!

Great shots Ray! What's the line cutting across the first cat's nose?

Thanks for pointing that out. I am not sure what that was but I replaced the photo. Do you still see the line?

Which camera was used for these shots....very beautiful

I am "re-purchasing" a 28 2.8 ais today from someone who I dont think knows what he has. To his eyes it is just an old MF Nikon lens that he does not use anymore.....So needless to say I am getting it pretty cheap.

Phillippe - great light. Glad to see you back.

Ray - I find it hard to believe that any camera can improve on those pics. The Ocelot (?) is really outstanding.

Ronny - as Reagan says "no girls" but a great image of some quite nice glass

Philippe, nice street portraiture again, good to see you posting again. Ray, is that the Tampa zoo? Visited it many years ago and from the zoo, took a boat down a river that goes through the city. Main memory is the occasional alligator sunning itself in people's backyard that sloped down towards the river. And your 300 keeps on shining!

Here's Elizabeth 2, Canadian queen. Taken with the 55 3.5 Micro-Nikkor, f/4, 1/60s and ISO 250. Testing out small Giotto's tripod. The camera with the 55 Micro pointing down vertically isn't exactly stable, have to hold on to the tripod. Mishap waiting to happen.
