More great work - staying with the thread but not much more.

Ronny, that 28mm lens of yours has more than a bit of Zeiss Distagon look to it. Very very impressive.

I got myself a nice Micro-NIKKOR-P Auto f/3.5 55mm yesterday. Mounted on a Nikon 1 V1 thru a Fotodiox dumb adapter. First trials this morning...

John, welcome, nice to see another V1-shooter here! The venerable 55/3.5 Micro-Nikkor is an amazing lens.

Ben, wow, love the first set! The reflection is great too.

Arrrgggh! A reminder of the second expensive lens which is on the way to me! Very nice, artistic shots, Ben. I will "muddle through" with the Sigma 35 1.4 until the Nikons arrive!

We have definitely missed Ben's keen eye for possibilities. Love everything you posted today but am especially mesmerized by the reflection that seems to shimmer on the many plates of glass. Delicious!

You've discovered the great benefit of Close Range Correction with those closeups using your latest acquisition, the 28 f/2.8 AI-s. What fun... with or without tubes you can get up close and personal with your subject. And this lens will never disappoint when shooting close. It is beautifully sharp with wonderful color and contrast. I'm really delighted you have that lens Ronny. I expect we'll see MORE great results with it. You'll give Philippe a run for his money...

Tom, I think you are wise to let a professional camera technician open up your 50 f/1.2 AI-s. A well lubricated lens will have just a slight amount of drag when turning the focusing ring. That said, my 50 f/1.8 AI-s have very little resistance and still works fine. There is even a bit of play in the aperture ring that poses no problem either. But with a lens as fine as the f/1.2 you want the total experience. Let us know how it sorts out...

James great work with the 200 micro and 35mm 1.4

Scott hard to believe we were both bidding on the same lens. Glad I won
Great train shot especially the heat coming off the engine!

Dylan a terrific moody shot at the Fairmont

Steve love the 180's I never seem to reach for mine

Ronny the canal shot is very picturesque

Ben love to see more shots from the 35mm 1.4

John nice dragonfly. I'm not sure I remember you posting before, welcome.

I don't see many using the 85mm 2.0. Great lens I sold mine to get the 85mm 1.4 but did enjoy it.

Love these, Ben. Sydney had some of the coolest architecture I had ever seen. Those houses/apartments near Luna park...with round windows...not sure If I shot them or not.....were awesome.

David - "muddle through" with the Sigma 35mm - it's meant to be good isn't it?
James - no the 35 is not wide open - it's a bit funky wide open - it was f2.
