Ram, welcome to the thread, and I think this is a lens that hasn't been seen here before!
!

Thank you.. It is my first time seeing one in person too. I picked it along with a 50mm f1.8 AI (close focusing) from Craigslist.
I went to the Park with the 36-72 and 400mm f3.5 AI.. Here is the shot of Cormorant with the 400mm.

I just love my 400mm., especially it cleans up nicely after f5.6 and is really sharp.

As a collector of the Series E glass, glad to finally see a shot with one. I have the 28, 50, 100, and the 75-150 on the way. Eventually I want to get them all.

As per my test., wide open its slightly soft and less contrasty.. by f4, its better and from f5.6, really nice. The below shots were taken at 72mm.

Hope you all don't get bored by shift-shots and the wild processing:

Another Navy-vessel - shot with the PC 28/3.5 at f/11, shifted about 7mm up - D700


Nope - I don't get tired of these shots Georg. Always interesting compositions and post processing.

Samy, At. Alphonsus is very well built with bircks, mortar, and stone, the damage is superficial, judging from your photos.

Oh no! Big Brother Curtis is here! Good to see you Curtis. Hope the camera bag makes it into the car once the rain stops.

Glad I caught myself before you showed up. I have the secret weapons.. SNOW and cold temps. More coming tonight too.

Having spent the first 27 years of my life in Minnesota Laura I have a bit of experience with snow and I don't like it! Of course, it is raining at the moment in my neck of the woods. We've had close to 12 inches of rain in the last three days. It is sorely needed, so I have no complaint. But, Kevin, the camera bag will remain inside until we get a break. I imagine folks in Roseville are as happy about the snow falling in the Sierra Nevada mountains as we are with the rain. Drought is not a happy word...

Hope school is going well Laura. I'm doing some reading at the moment that is quite inspiring. While I have no intention to register for a course, I can imagine how delicious is would be to engage with one or another of the authors I'm reading in a classroom setting. It is always good to get the mental apparatus operating again. The old adage "use it or lose it" is as apropos for our brains as it is for our bodies...

Our trip to Sydney was last April. Apparently (allegedly !) they do have a particular type of penguin there but we didn't see any. We did a house swap and stayed in a lovely $1.5M house in Lane Cove which backed onto reserve. It's on the north side of the harbour and the harbour is the largest natural harbour in the world so no views of the city from the shore. Weather was terrible first week and freezing in the Blue Mountains but we loved it !

View from bottom of garden and walk along to the cove

Yeah, the drought is ugly already here. Mormon Island, the town that was flooded in making Folsom Lake has been uncovered for the first time since it was flooded in 1957. Water levels dropped below the intake for the San Juan water district (which is freaking huge). They had to submerge a pump to push water up to the intake. Now we are worrying about flooding as well as the ground being oversaturated. We need rain, then a break, then rain...wash, rinse, repeat.

Take a look at Don's WTB post some new guy gave hims poor feedback without a transaction
He just didn't like his reply to a post

Don is an outstanding FM'er and a part of this thread He doesn't deserve this

I am interested, but my laptop isn't selling as quickly as I wish. Trade you a D7000 and my laptop.
