Thanks Ray, Curtis, and Georg .

Georg, funny you mention film... one of the classes I'm taking in the summer session is Photography I, B&W Film, and Darkroom processing. ..


Reagan, there are five presidents getting that benefit right now, what with all the crazies out there, any of them is a target, along with their families. I believe former First Ladies also get that protection the rest of their lives. And on 10159 ISO!

Very nice images in the last day or so. Love the mountains, flowers, graduation day and "new" 200mm lens. Very busy last couple of days but next week off to the "fairest Cape" for a week of golf and eating. The camera will be along!

Phillippe - Ah Menerbes! Had a wonderful meal at a restaurant "Clementine". As Bob Hope would have said .."Thanks for the memories"..................

I took 204 pictures today...what stinks is 150 of them I forgot to change my lens data for. Sigh! Think I got some good stuff too, ran the gamut of styles too. Portraiture, macro, street... Hope to PP and post tomorrow.

Peter, another fine set of beautiful landscape-photographs! Personal favorite is the third shot, amazing textures on the hills and dramatic clouds to top it off.

Reagan, wow, that's quite a crowd in front of your lens ;-) Amazing what todays camera can deliver at high ISO-settings.

Philippe, that's a truly idyllic village on your fine photo.

Rafael, your gear-shots are pure eye-candy. Your copy of the venerable 200/4 QC seems to be a good performer (just like Jose's and Curtis' copies).

Laura, developing film is something special, almost magical for me. The moment when I have a very first look on the wet film still wound up on it's spiral (after the fix) is exiting every time, even after some thousands rolls of film.
I hope you'll like this experience as well.

Kevin, I hope to see a B&W-picture or two out of your 204 images too ;-)

I just had to test this lens some more, this is a TEST, Pleeasseee do not compare to anything Jose or Curtis do with the 200mm QC, especially Curtis' flowers.

I was fixing sprinklers, it got to be 92 here as well, it is down to 86Deg already. Had to fix them to keep plants alive.

A crop of this, 100%.

Then I mounted it on the PN11, this combo provides a great working distance, about 5 feet and good single rose type magnification. This is at f/4. This is at standard pic control all factory settings no post processing other that convert to jpg

Leighton put the screws on me to post some nikki pics - so I've bolted it to the camera to stop me using anything else for the next week or so.
