C'mon Curtis - you have to be kidding for the benefit of the under '70's

Here's a 5 shot pano of the Smokys using the D7000 and 16mm 3.5. Not up to John's standard but the view was wonderful!

Goerg the "charcoal" shot is terrific. Very nice framing!
Leighton the lock photo really shows off the DOF. I think you do great work with the 50mm 1.2
Jose your moon photos make me jealous
Roland you have to love the 16mm 3.5 nice shots
Ron terrific timing on the turtle. Nice capture
Samy you really have a knack for street photography. Shakespeare St. is my favorite

Thank you Georg and Jeff!

Rafael - I rather like the first B&W image of the steam tractor, you captured it well. Ever since I saw some images from you around a month ago with the 5.8, I've been very interested in it. You're right about the 3d rendering, which is the attractiveness of it. But I could have sworn it was the f2 version and not the 1.4 seen here, am I right? I believe the images I am referring to were of an old PU truck.

You remember well Leighton, the 5cm 2,0s at 2.0 does the best job I have seen so far in separating the subject plane from the background in a 3d like way, because the subjec plane t is well in focus and the background is just out of focus in a smooth way. The 5.8cm so far seems best at giving an effect of the center very sharp at 1.4 with the rest fading away, but the in focus area is smaller.


Would be interesting to compare with the 50/1.2 at the same aperture.

Roland, I like the set with the glaciers. Have you ever seen Chasing the Ice, with photographer James Balog?

Ronny these flower photos are beautiful. Love the post works and the colors are terrific. I think you are putting some pressure on our flower master Curtis!

Hi guys,

any advice on "basic" MF Nikkor zoom? Some good and "cheap"? I noticed 28-85 for reasonable price (somewhere around 300 USD).

I want it cause now I have Nikon F mount camera, but theres probability of using Canon EOS and MF Nikkors works on both. (like my C/Y lens)

Ray, thanks, but you give me way too much credit I have been following all the street photography here and trying to emulate some of it

My favorite Nikkor zoom is the 50-135mm f3.5 AI-s. You can usually pick one up from anywhere between 150 to 300 bucks. Watch out for the condition, the zoom/focus rings can get very loose.

Check-out my flickr set for this lens. http://flic.kr/s/aHsjEWXxSY

Once again, there have been too many great shots posted since my last visit to comment on them all. Needless to say, there's some great talent and genuine love of photography being shown off in this thread. It's both humbling and enjoyable to stop in.

Now, if you all don't mind, can I get a quick opinion on two lenses? In one of my first posts in this thread I commented on my desire to get one of the 1.2 variants - either the 50 or the 55 - but I hadn't made up my mind. After doing some research, the 55 2.8 micro has started to look enticing (and cheaper!), so much so that I'm leaning towards this instead. Can anyone share their opinions on the 55 2.8 micro vs either, or both, of the 1.2 variants? The Noct is not an option due to the cost.

Thanks!

Here are some photos of the many gates that are prevalent all over Charleston, SC. These are all taken using the D7000 and 16mm 3.5. They fascinated me as to their ornate styles. I hope you will enjoy them
