One of the things I really like about the 35mm ais is the ability to literally wipe the background out when wide open with it's 9 bladed iris, it's sharp, and it handles the sun well too. Nervous bokeh is not a given with all highlights - it can be creamy too.

35mm ais @f1.4





35mm ais @f16





35mm ais @f5.6






I've added another 105mm to the 105 f2.5 ais I already have...this one is the f4.0 ais micro. It is a beautiful mint copy. Only negative so far is that it is a little soft at infinity, but that is not what it is for.

James great work with the 35mm 1.4 AIS your photos truly show the quality of this lens in the right hands

OOsty Very interesting houses!

Ray The background looks like it is moving in the 1st one.

Jose That's astonishing detail.

Brian and jenny Beautiful shots!

Steve I like the processing on your whole set!

Jim Nice shooting with the 35mm f1/4!

These old lenses sure have character.

... and now for something rather different...

Mesquite Dunes, Death Valley. D800E, 105mm 2.5 AIS, 3 shot horizontal pano, 1/250 @ 11, ISO 100, tripod. Other interesting EXIF element: Altitude -120 feet (but I can't vouch for that).

Mark, the dunes are outstanding. I really like the rather muted graytones.

All of these shots using the 35mm 1.4 AIS is very inspiring. It truly is a Nikon Classic. Although many complain about it's jittery bokeh, I for one absolutely love that about this lens. It also is a very sharp lens and provides excellent color.





I agree Ray, lovely bokeh!

Thanks George. (georgms)

I liked to call those leaf shots from the Noct water shot over moss, "gold coins" They sort of look like gold coins when they pile up, and add some definite interest to water shots around the Smokies the last week of Oct. :-)

Appreciate it. I actually wanted to spend more time here, and I let myself get ran off by a fat redneck b*tch smoking cigarettes at a national park site. I get so sick of that. I just retreat and go find myself somewhere alone to shoot. In this case, I spend most of my 2-3 partial days near Tremont area. Much less congested than the normal tourist holes.

Mark, the dunes are marvellous and the curves are very sensual. Great shot.

Doug, I loved the water shot. Pity about the idiot at the park site. I can't remember who said that there are a lot more horses asses than there are horses, but he was right
