Here's a couple from the 55mm micro as a portrait lens from a lazy Sunday at the playground


Great shots, Mark - what a versatile lens that is.

I like this one as well. We are all friends here Roland, we would love to see more of your work.

Thank you, Kevin, and...

Very nice shots from the mountain walk Roland, lovely to end up in Ticino and then let on the old SBB take you home.

thank you, Mark, as well of course.

Glad you finally got Sue settled in. Hopefully, she can stay there a while. How's your back?

The power pole at the right side is disturbing, but I prefer to live with imperfections rather than cloning out ugly stuff ;-)


I understand why this caught your eye. The obvious sign of a boat, without the usual water. Good eye!

Roland, very nice set, I particularly like the first and fourth ones. You live in one of the most beautiful regions of the world. I dare say the vast majority of Swiss photographers are landscape photographers!

Roland, I agree with Leighton: that's another very fine set from the mountains. Great to see you guys found some rest at a slate-plate.
Btw, I wish Nikon would make a FX-DSLR with a swivel-screen/display. This would make some shots (from a frog's perspective) much more easy.

Leighton and Dean: thanks for your comments!

Don't tell anyone, but I actually considered the Canon 60D before I bought my D7000 for that very reason.

I really like these two shots John.

Heh, there were supposed to be pictures here. C&C on my posting is appreciated!

So let me say, I'm talking about the sunset shot at the airport and the shot of the wide open field in South Dakota.

I will be able to add more to this thread soon.

My old 80-200 f4 AIs found its way back to me after 2 years of absence, and I am close to purchasing a 28mm f2.8 AIs.

That would bring my MF lens lineup to:

28mm f2.8 AIs
50mm f2.0 AI
55mm f3.5 AI micro with PK-13 tube
80-200 f4 AIS

That covers about all the focal lengths Id need in full frame. Unfortunately my digital camera is still DX but that wont stop me from snapping away as soon as the 28 and 80-200 are here.

This thread indeed moves very fast! As I mentioned a few pages back, here are a few shots I took last week. The birds and the dragonfly were taken with the 500 f4 p, while the beetle was taken with my "new" 55 f3.5 Micro. I'd love to hear C&C on any or all of them.

Thanks!


Very nice bird images with the 500. I like the colors and smooth background.

A couple more from the recent trip to South Dakota - both with the 45/2.8 AI-P taken on the way back home.



Wonderful colors and composition in the sunrise image John.

I like this Georg. Foreground bokeh!

Very nice images Roland. I like the creative low angle technique. This first image is my favorite.

Buddy, I think you will really like the 28 2.8 AIS on the DX body. It is my standard carry around combo.

Interesting comments on individual preferences for focal length. Two things I have picked up here and elsewhere:

- the predilection for using the short and long ends of zoom lenses, which I do myself

- a slight schism between those who prefer 28mm and those preferring 35mm: prevailing comments are that 28mm is for "pros" and 35mm for "laymen." Sorry, but I prefer 35mm, despite my earnest attempts to embrace the 28mm 1.8G and the 28mm 2.8 AI-s. Then again, I am certainly not a pro.

Anyway, I have made a bid on the 20 3.5AI-s offered by a fellow member. Thanks for the help here.

My first "tube "shot. Had the 50 1.2 and added a kenko 12 mm tube. Very different to shoot!
