I think you should keep the 55 Peter, especially at that price. It is a versatile lens and a nice focal length for walking around campus. Wonderful set with a bit of whimsy, which is always welcome. I've only visited Madison once and that a weekend jaunt with a bunch of college friends from Minneapolis. I grew up in Richfield, a suburb to the south of the city but left a long time ago for warmer climes... Seeing your mountain photos it is clear you have no aversion to snow and cold, but actually seek it out. I don't understand people like you...

I am happy, however, that you've decided to spend a bit more time on this thread and that you're sharing your experience with these classic lenses.

Very nice set Georg. I really like how you process these images. In my flower mode, which is active at the moment, I can't even consider black and white. I can to bark but flowers simply call for color.

Here's a shot from today's ramble. I decided to mount an extension tube on the 00 f/4 Q.C. AI'd and pulled the Vivitar 36mm out of the cabinet. This was shot wide open, hand held as always, uncropped. A bird of paradise up close...

Two more with the same combination... I'm restraining myself...


I'm not quite as adept at Ronny catching the bees in flight so I have to catch them when they're rolling around the flower drunk with pollen...


Both images were cropped for composition... shot wide open, hand held. This lens handles well with tubes also.

Peter (Knysa) and Ray, beautiful sunsets from two very distant parts of the world. Ray, the horizon with the 35 is very very straight, no distortion!

Scott, very nice scenery upstate scenery with the 105 micro. Haven't seen much from it on this thread.

Curtis, the first yellow and blue flower is delicious.

Peter (Wisconsin), enjoying the images from your 55 1.2! And just came across your top of the world pano. I think I see Ben peeking out from down under

Jeff, beautiful bokeh behind the red flower with both the 50 1.2 and the 105 2.5.

Paul, liked the antique car shots and the cow, and the tulips, as well as the canal b&w. For the cow image you were lying down in the grass and the cow's wondering what's going on?

Ronny, looks like the bee freezes for you to take its picture Very nice again.

Ben, very nice colorful panos of the waterfront scene with Nikki.

Reagan, liked the middle shot of the path and the orange holding wall.

Jose, great comparison among your 85 family. The f2 is certainly the poorer cousin among the lot.

Leighton, is the new radial filter something like a customizable vignetting?


Sort of, but it does much more than that. Such as the ability to invert the area and apply all the standard sliders that the healing brush offers.

I love your zoo shots, very sharp, especially the first one.

I really like this one, you're gonna love this lens, there's so many options on how to use it.

Simply gorgeous Curtis. The colors and composition is top notch.

Georg, Getting back to the use of the radial filter in LR5. Here's a video explaining the use of this great addition to LR. There's two more additions they added to make the upgrade a no-brainer.

Thank you Samy. I was walking on a path slightly lower than the meadow the cows were on, giving a nice perspective.

Very nice, Leighton ... gives it a 3D look. Looks like a interesting filter.

Is the LR 5 beta stable? You can't have both versions going at once can you?

I'm finding some controlled vignetting also gives a 3D look ... much like Peter's hydrant 3-4 pages ago.
