Ray Nice series at the garden, the selective focus really works well in these. Love the 1st one.

Georg I have a 28 PC but I almost never use it at extremes because my sample gets weak at the edges when shifted.

Rattymouse Great crowd shot, I can't imagine waiting for results shooting film.

Georg, Thank you. Loved the Tall Ship and Tugs with Sun spot

Samy, Thank you. I kind of felt guilty about what I paid once I tried them out. Not sure my photos are up to par for posting. I tend to shoot Hand Held JPEG SOOC with little post processing. I know I got a little Giddy about the focus indicator. But I wear Tri- Focal glasses and have my view finder set to the highest magnification. I am no longer able to manual focus and nail a birdís eye but I can still track em.

Went out this morning with the 200 f4 + Pro 300 1.4 tc. It was a real pleasure as my shoulder is wore out from shooting so much with the 300 f4 since I got the D7100. Couldn't find anything live to shoot, but I did confirm a very detailed image of a Woodpecker hole at 25yds with an equvalent crop factor of 546mm in 1.3 dx mode. I'll get him when he returns. I can already see that I'm going to love these little lens.

Thanks Mitch, can't wait to see some shots. I started very much like you. I bought a EM camera with a 28mm 2.8, 50mm 1.8 and a 75-150mm for $50.00 That was the start of my manual focus lens adventure gone wild. I now have more lenses than I really need but I love them all. So be warned these lenses are like potato chips, you always want more.
Thanks Leighton I am really enjoying this lens.

Ray, your flower-shots with the 180 ED are very, very nice! I like especially the muted greens and the really pleasing rendering of the background.

Mitch, I'm glad to read that your new MF-Nikkor-set works well for you!

Thanks for the comments on the PC-shots!
Scott, the sailing vessel was shot with the D700, the other images (tugs and "tests") with the D7000. I've shot some more pictures with the PC 28/3.5 today, all with the D700. It's performance on the 12MP-FX-sensor is not great, but better than on DX.
Roberto und Jose might share their opinions about the PC 35/2.8 if you ask ;-)

Ray (FL) and Ronny, amazing shots. Ronny that dragonfly must have signed a contract with you, its cooperating quite well with you and your 135mm

Couple of images with the 85 1.4 AIS while the sun was still out. First one is with PK-11A attached.







Next one with the PK-13.

Wow, Ronny, superb work again!

Samy, I really love the second shot - simply amazing!

This one is weird even by my standards ;-)
Another shot with the PC 28/3.5 shift-lens. Not much detail to blur in the sky, so I could use every possible millimeter of shift ;-)
I don't recall f-stop or amount of shift, could be f/8 and about 5 or 6 millimeters shift.

Leighton:

Anywhere near Graves Mountain? We are going there Sunday. (Sadly without Nikon MF glass, as I sold much of mine for Zeiss.)
