I had some fun yesterday using the 85mm 1.4AIS. Can I just say that I love everything about this lens!

Yea, but they have some pretty bad purple fringing going on.

Anyone else having this problem? The FM thread (any thread) loads very slowly, and most of the time just loads part of the page.

Fine here using Firefox 25.0. You might try clearing your cache.

Hi Samy, everything is fine here (in terms of FM-loading-speed only ;-).

Ray, nice set with your 85/1.4! The "purple fringing" Leighton mentioned looks weird indeed, I hope it's the plants and not the Nikkor.

Rafael, interesting art-shots from the museum. The 55/1.2's (I'm talking about my copy) distortion is a bit much for my taste, but at least it's easily correctable in post.

Leighton, which lens will you take tomorrow? Or do you just grab one Nikkor in the morning - as a kind of impulsive selection?

Thanks for the comments on the door-shot. The door looks much better in nice light than on my badly timed shot.

I had a problem with FM about a couple hours ago. Message had to do with the database connection. Fixed in less than a minute so I am not sure if that was something you were/are experiencing.

I'm not sure, I was thinking the 28/2.8.

Thanks Georg and Leighton. My browser decided to take a dislike to FM threads so trying a different one now and this seems to fly through. Time to go start reviewing what all I have missed the last few days

Thank Georg and Chuong
I can assure you that my camera is ok. The purple appears in the plant that I believe is called a Coleus. When i go back to the garden I will check to be sure. They have signs in front of most plants or I will ask our Gardener Caitlyn.

Ray, now that's a very nice portrait of your gardener! I was sure it's not the lens, but removing bokeh fringing/longitudinal CA's can have a disastrous effect on images when overdone. Maybe I'll find a sample tomorrow. That's one of the reasons why I prefer to have lenses without too much LoCa's, distortion or strong vignetting.

Leighton, I'm really curious about your work with the 28/2.8 at the market.

Testing out an F4S and 50mm f/1.8 AI-s that picked up. Cheap expired Kodak Gold 200 film and Costco process/scan.

Ray That stump detail is 3D on my screen.

Dean Very interesting shots from Cambodia.

Weasle_Loader The near whites in this flag shot are nice.

Georg I've been amazed at how much CA reduction and vignetting correction ACR accomplishes, it breaths new life into the old hardware.

Georg, the painting of the dancers is not distortion corrected so this is the distortion of my sample, It bothers me not, but I would not use it for architecture.

Same as Nikon cameras when generating JPGs or capture NX2.
