A few more from the 400/5.6 ED AI. I did not have my big tripod with me so I was struggling with shutter speed, subject motion, and vibration, but I pulled a few good images out of the evening.

With all the 135-Q shots lately, decided to bust mine out of the bag... Couple of shots with the PK13...

Except for shot #1 these are not cropped. Played with a Fuji Superia 400-preset in ColorEfex to get an old-time-look

Playing with the wet location - somehow I like abstracts like this ;-)

D700, PC 85/2.8D tilted, wide open, effective aperture f/3.8

The shot above was my starting point, wasn't happy with the background and moved to a different location:

This one is all too tightly framed, but I like the concentrated look - D3s, PC 85/2.8D wide open too

Wow, these are great! The abstract is my favorite.

Kevin, invredible and misterious bloom on your first photo.

John, great colors of dusk.

My contribution of the day, nothing really good, my muse is on vacation. Just to show the 50mm 2.0 S and the 35mm 1.4 wide open on D3.

Warning! Heavy post enabled by the lens signature.

before I get completely lost playing with my new toy, some 135mm Nikkor-Q goodies from yesterday. Now that things have warmed up in our climate zone, I'm not the only one on a bicycle along my commute any longer, so here's a bike theme set from Madison, all with the 135 and handheld on D600

wide open at f/2.8 1/200s ISO 100, linear polarizer







f/4.0 1/800s ISO 100







who needs autofocus anyway?
f/2.8 1/800s ISO 100







f/2.8 1/500s ISO 100, yellow filter conversion, I think

Thanks Kevin, Jose, Leighton, Peter, Ray and Georg for your comments on the seal set. Those guys were in the "wild", but very accessible. A long time ago, the City of San Diego built a breakwater in La Jolla and created a small beach called Children's Pool. In recent years, harbor seals have gotten very comfortable on the beach and there is a big political and legal controversy going on between seal advocates and people who would like to use the beach for swimming, etc. Quite a contentious mess, but a good chance to take the seal pictures up close.

Peter in Madison, great diner and bull shots. I really like the "ghost bike" and locomotive shots too. Congrats on the 600mm! Can you use extension tubes with that bad boy?

Georg, the spider's web shots with the 85mm pc are outstanding! Really like the the bike wheel and tuba shots.

Bill, welcome! Very nice bird shots with the 135mm.

Ray, terrific owls and dragonfly!

Mark, very cool shots from the Technorama.

Ron, beautiful flower.

Jim, great ones of great ones taken with a great one!

Leighton, wonderful flowers with the 55/2.8.

Sam, great shots of the ominous clouds.

Peter, beautiful autumn leaves.

Welcome Doug! That Noct has some seriously nice bokeh going on!

Philippe, really like the Cassis set with the 28mm.

Curtis, gorgeous flowers with the 105mm and pk-13.

John, very nice evening shots from the Sound.

Ronny, great little ducklings!

f/2.8 1/500s ISO 100

thanks for the comments - and yes, you can. In fact, after rattling through each aperture for a first test shot, I put on my K1-K5 tubes, which total about 50mm, because the nearest focus on that big boy is 6.5 meters. With the tubes, that is down to about 4 meters. So to get really close, you probably will need over 100mm in tubes. It certainly won't "magnify. I wonder if anyone makes a lens reversal ring for it

like this one a lot more than the first - the blue reflection makes it look a lot less like toxic sludge compared to one with pure brown water

this one just pops - how close can you go with the PK13? I have yet to try the 135mm in macro, but I guess it would be close to the 105mm. My tubes add up to just 50mm about, so I will need to find another set to get those longer lenses up close. The screen magnification of the "Focus" image was only possible because of the +3 diopter close up lens on top of the 50mm tubes - I doubt I could have focused the 55mm with that much extension without giving it reading glasses.

PK13 is 27.5mm. On the 135Q, working distance is about 18" or so.

Also, this shot I took using the "Sunny 16" rule. 100% manual, did not use the in camera metering at all. I really liked the detail of the center of the flower.

The 600mm, plus 100mm in tubes, would make for one impressive "walk around" close-up lens.
