Congratulations to Mark for getting second place in the weekly assignment (Night Lights). This was my entry taken with the 50/1.2 on my way to the market a couple of weeks ago.



Thanks Leighton.

Jeff (Foggy) came in 3rd as well and with your entry a good week for the MF crowd - although I confess I used an AF lens on mine.
I loved your entry, it was very atmospheric. I think one of the other posters said it best when he said it was effective on several levels at once.




Yes, congratulations to Mark, Jeff, and Leighton! Way to go NMFAS members.

Hmm that link went away. Not sure why. It was like this:








6 of them were available for sale.

I used the 50mm 1.4 for several shots during our trip to the Smoky's This a lens that I found in a yard sale a while back for $25.00. It was the K version and no conversion kits were available, so I had my good friend trim it for me. I had forgotten exactly how good this lens was until I came across these photos that I had overlooked before. I will use this lens on the D600 for sure!



I have this lens too. Its the 50/1.4 I have been itching to convert. I am hesitent as my copy is in VERY good shape and I have heard there is a market for the K models as they aren't as numerous. I haven't converted it for that very reason...

On a similar front, I was gifted a 28/3.5 that was in rough condition with one of the inner elements loose in the lens. I am nearly done repairing it and I think I will have a good workable copy. If it renders anything like my 35/2.8, it might replace my Series E 28/2.8. The E is very tough on Dx on anything wider than f/5.6. With the longer focus throw of the older lens, I may have better luck. Hope to find out possibly as soon as Thursday. I wish I had something wider for fireworks, but I think if I am good with placement, I will be OK. (more than likely I will be right underneath the display, last year I was able to get good images with my cell from that location).

Stay tuned!

Thank you Kevin. Actually the K version lenses have more available factory conversion kits available. So I really don't think that they will command a premium. I would go ahead and have that one converted, you will love it!

Samy I am enjoying your Smithsonian photos well done!
Zippy nice photo using the 28mm. I miss the subway. Traveled all over Toronto on them
Scott very cool railroad photos especially this one





John love the vacation photos. Looks like the family is having a great time!
Curtis the chess set is first rate





Mark it is really a joy to meet up with friends we have made over the internet!
Georg nice perspective on the dock photo. Usually you see that type photo stopped down. Yours is very refreshing
Leighton very nice low light shot. The lighting is terrific!

Testing the so called Macro Function on the 50-135. Have to agree with Bjorn more of a novelty but it is acceptable.

Ron looks like the micro feature does a pretty good job.

Thanks for the nice comments.

Ron - The macro function isn't much use on that lens, but you did a nice job anyway.

Ray - Beautiful set, including the outhouse!

Ray thank you for the comment. Love the old Dodge and conversion. Is that near Leighton's too?

Went scratching around a bit in my photos and found this shot I took the day I received my 50mm f/1.8 Series E in the mail...

Which one do you guys prefer?

Really impressed with the sharpness this little lens has, even for a shot that is not in perfect focus.

Regards
Jared

It is a wonderfully sharp lens Jared. I prefer the color version

I agree with Ray (and by extension - Leighton) too. Very nice lens and photo.

I keep telling you all, the Series E 50/1.8 is a winner of a lens. Don't let the naysayers sway you at all.
