Curtis, love the first shot with the 200/4 QC and tube. The colors are fantastic indeed.

One more bokeh fest with the 55mm f1.2. The fire department's hookup at the new power station, still all shiny.

f2 1/2500s ISO 100







and in color up close

f1.2 1/4000s ISO 100







in 100% zoom I noticed some crud in the bokeh rings far left - I assume what I see here is dirt in the lens? Healing brush took care of it

Peter, love the B&W hookup! Shiny metal works usually very well in B&W, your picture is the best proof.

Yes, it's a mirror. The images on the other side are backlit.

almost forgot this bokeh shot - no vignette was added here (it just got amplified by the processing). 55mm f/1.2 @f/1.2 1/2500s with polarizer. Atmospherical Sciences building next door to my office.

I am looking for help identifying this lens. Many people think it is a WW2 Japanese aerial lens.


I have more images and info here. Any help would be appreciated.

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


+1 fantastic picture!

Adam, the lens certainly is a monster! And it's the right colour for military use but the only thing i wouldn't expect in a WWll lens is the Eurpoean alphabet - unless Nikon thought the war was lost and were doing some advance marketing if they got captured

Nice blog.

there's another thread here, somebody else asking about the same lens.

most likely aerial recon lens from WW2 and it won't mount on your D800

Georg, Leighton, Scott, Samy,Ray, - thanks for your comments

Leighton - interesting effect with the filter. Thank you for all the work you put in on the blog - just a great job for all of us here.

Georg - the zoo series is very good with the lemur being tops. The gallery shot is award quality!

Peter B - glad you're enjoying the lens and entertaining us

Curtis - excellent flowers ( hope the housing dilemma is close to a good solution)

Ray - OK I quit! Great sunset

Laura - in catching up I noticed your GPA - excellent!

Phillippe - more wonderful Provencal images - Z+Z = Zizi. I can see you and John Hinkey chasing off suitors for years to come. Lovely girls and I enjoyed the Onassis joke.

Georg the photo of the art gallery is amazing. What great framing and the subject is perfect. Great eye!
Phillippe those are photos that should bring great memories for years to come!
Thank you Peter. I can't take the credit because the D600 and 35mm 1.4 sorta work all on their own

Georg, Philippe, Scott, Chuong and Samy, thanks for the comments on the red coral shots!

Paul, from the English "mustache," to the curious cow, to the canals; great stuff!

Scott, Letchworth looks like a terrific place to photograph. I really like the vertical shot with the railroad bridge at the top of the frame and the water flowing to the bottom.

Peter, cool slinky and bokeh shots.

Curtis, very nice one of the white fence and the "peeking" flower. The "bird" is gorgeous.

Philippe, beautiful shot of "Christina." The financial crisis must have hit the Onassis family very hard. That's quite a downsizing.

Peter, love the car shots, especially one of my all time favorites, the GT40 dressed up in Ferrari red, no less!

Leighton, beautiful flowers with the radial filter. I'm looking forward to trying that.

Georg, the zoo shots are amazingly nice. Love how you captured such great expressions.

Rafael, great shot of great lenses.

Ray, beautiful sunsets.

Thanks to all for the comments on both the blog and the image.

This whole adventure with Nikki was a team effort and I was honored to be a part of it!

Georg - Love the museum shot, had me looking twice at it.

Ray - More beautiful images of your world. The DR on the D600 is truly amazing!

Jeff - You're gonna LOVE LR5.

Dean - LR5 is stable although I had to do some fancy computer work to get it to run. It will run side-by-side with LR4 although it won't use any LR4 catalogs.
