Another one from the humble series e..28 e f/2.8 wide open







Your copy is a little better than mine; at least at 2.8. At 5.6 mine is possibly the sharpest/cleanest rendering lens I have.
Mine is a model starting with 1965XXX(81-85)..it is the one with a chrome ring..
Crazy sharp at f8 too..Just love it..the DOF rendering and detail is awesome,even reversed at f11.

Mine is right after yours. 199XXXX I agree with your assessment on the other bits.

Reagan, wow, your street-portraits are really nice, love the energetic walk of the pictured ladies ;-)

Rafael, after successfully exchanging the alternator on my Trabant P601 (600ccm, two-stroke two-cylinder-egine of 26 HP) about 20 years ago I decided that working with cars is much less fun than working with cameras ;-) Hats off to your skills

Andy, the Hibiscus looks fantastic!

Scott, very nice take on the abandoned house!

Curtis, very nice bokeh-play at the candle-store! Nice reflections (intended or not ) at the "Thousand Cranes"-store-window - I've spotted at least two Prius hybrid-cars, those seem to be trendy over in the US of A.

Sar, your photographic and bird-stalking-skills are outstanding. Hope I doesn't sound like a broken record…

Samy, I really enjoy looking at your fine shots with the skinny 10.5cm T-lens. A short telephoto is a great tool for architectural shots, and your fine images are the "digital proof".

Chuong, lovely portraits of your kids with the vintage 3.5cm-Nikkor!

Two from today:

85/2 Ais at f/11, tried to create sun-stars


Ais 85/2 wide open - aging casts a long shadow ;-)

…and one from yesterday (with the 135/2 Ais, was on the way to an assignment):

George.. your 85mm f2 images are amazing.. The BW effect really adds to the photo.

Thanks to all of you., I had a serious NAS on 105mm and picked up a beatup AIS version for $59 (+$10 shipping) on eBay. Can't wait to start using it. I think it is missing the aperture coupling prong. Do you think it is a problem for using in the digital SLRs?
BTW.. here are the pictures of the 105 and others taken by the 85mm f2 AI and D40. I am going to stick to D40 until 28th for posting here.

I just got back from the UPS store. I sent my D600 in for the shutter recall and now I am cameraless


Oh crap!


I got mine refurbished and have not seen any oil spots. Mine came with 10K on the shutter with dust. I am planning to clean it and see if dust resurfaces. I also received the email this morning.

Ram

To me it's a free check up cleaning and adjusting, not to mention a new shutter. Well worth the time to send it in IMHO


I agree. I will send it after the 1st wave of returns arrive.

@Ram: Lucky you..You don't need the prong to get that beauty working on your DSLR..Enjoy your lens..

Your images along with Georg's are increasing my NAS lust for the 85 f2 AIS..must resist temptation

Georg, the framing on this is terrific. Nice conversion and subject.

Thank you everyone for the comments and likes on the house in need of repair.

Ray, what are you going to do in your spare time until your D600 comes home?

I wandered down to the beach for sunset with the D40 and 28/2...

Surveying the surf at the shack, with sun-star.

Scott I don't know what I will do to pass the time. I may have to dig out the Nikon FA and try some film with the new 135 F2

Nancy I just love the double starburst
