Quick trip to Oregon, and only very limited time to take pictures.

Here's Multnomah Falls with the 28 3.5 PC.








Wonderful capture Samy. Very nice clarity.

It is a shame but lately I was so busy I had almost no time to stay here
Tons of excellent shots guys, as usual.

I am leaving tomorrow for more 4-5 days of fieldwork; apart my 300/2.8 AF-S VR1 + TCs, the 50/1.8 AI + 105/2.5 PC ai'd and the 400/5.6 K ai'd surely will stay in my bag too.


The last shot for next 7 days or so is one of my last trip to a savannah preserve:

Jacaranda flowers with Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AI wide open.
D600 + Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AI hand held, ISO 800, f/1.8 at 1/1250s.
The yellowish background is the result of dry season, now ending with the first rains.

Thank you Jeff, Georg, Ray, and Ronnie for the comments.

Another taken with the 18 3.5 ais. Inspired by Ray's Florida images. Mid day light so a polarizer was used.

Whoa...there is some funky DOF here. The 45 PC-E must have an involved learning curve....give yourself some time. I am sure you will master it. I like the art too.

One of just a few MF-Nikkor-shots from the last weeks, still struggling with the 45 PC-E.
It's an amazing lens, I just have to learn to get more out of it.
This one is from an exhibition displaying the work of an artist couple.


D3s, 45/2.8 PC-E stopped down to f4, effective aperture f/4.8, handheld

Chin, you can see the stress in her (I assume) co-workers. Really wonderful image!

Chuong, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

Thanks James. Focal lengths that I don't have seem to have the best views.

Panorama stitch, this time with the 55mm f/1.2 - forgot how many frames - about 6 vertical I think.

quick question large formats, is it true that the large format with the polaroid back takes 8X10 sized photo's right out the camera? are the actually eight by ten? does anyone know a great budget high quality German made large format, or an equal? thank you! happy photography, Americo.rodriguez

Last time I used a large format camera it was a Cambo 4x5 which makes 4x5 exposures, same as the Linnhoff products.

Both are awesome everlasting pieces of equipment.

We hope you enjoy your Nikon Fisheye-Nikkor 16 mm F/3.5 Ai Lens --- please read description. The next step is to pay. Pay now to get your item as quickly as possible.

Item number: 181217506710
Sale price: $200.00




it is pretty beat up, but I have been pretty lucky with beat up lenses in the past.

Lucky...! I think we need to form a beat up lens crew. Most of my lenses fall into this category; helps me not be afraid to use them.


I'll join in for sure.

My 55 f3.5 Ai is pretty beaten up but produces great images still, I have a 50 f1.4 S.C on the way that looks as if it has seen a lot of action, but for $60 it was hard to resist buying the lens and see what it can do and the 105 f2.5 P.C I bought a while ago has some battle damage and a scuff on the rear element, none of which preventing it from being crazy sharp.

The 105 P.C lens replaced my 105 AF-S as main fish portrait lens. It does a great job of rendering perfectly sharp photos of fish, through glass up to 10mm strength when using a few speedlights above the fank.

I also aquired a 55 f1.2 S.C. I completely forgot setting up a snipe for the auction and was a bit irritated when ebay told me I won an auction. I guess the irritation will pass when I receive the lens though

The reason for me not posting or reading along is an apparent defect in the cable that should provide an internet connection to my new apartment. I try to follow this thread on my phone but image resolution is so poor that often I decide it'd be better to catch up as soon as the cable is fixed. Seems to take forever though so I prefer to go out and take pictures for the time being. Even my 200-600 f9.5 has seen some use over the past weeks.

Bruni - very nice set

Ray - I've enjoyed the space centre series

Samy - excellent focus in Portland and of the falls

Dean - I'm envious. I was in Positano on honeymoon 45 years ago and loved the whole area

Scott - well inspired. Beautiful lake.

James - looks like you're hankering after winter lovely image

Sam - nice group

Picman - the results look fine to my eye - maybe the subject matter is a bit dull?? My 2c

Peter - very good pano
