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.

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.

I wouldn't call me a Bow-Tie guy, more of a muscle car guy. I have individual tastes in specific models, I don't stick to one brand.

You may have bought one with it already replaced. If you're not seeing any oil, or a LOT of dust, mainly in the top right of your images, then I wouldn't worry about it.

When my first D7000 was in for a sensor replacement, I was out for 6 weeks. I hope you don't suffer the same fate.

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

Ronny great shots with the 135 F2. I can only hope to do as well with my new one

Nancy great sunset photo!

Chuong you always use the 135 to it's potential. One reason I wanted one

Samy I love the row houses in the classic style

Curtis I am always impressed with your lens porn. Such a collection is an inspiration to all of us! It is great to see your street photos, especially the one with Sue

Sar terrific work with the very heavy 50-300

Scott the abandoned house is a great example of when to convert to B&W

Reagan your shots from the hip are just amazing - well done my friend

Andy the hibiscus is really sharp!

Georg I used to own the 85mm 2.0 but i could never get the results using that you demonstrate!

Ram just amazing what you are doing with the D40 I am impressed!

Phillippe what a view!

Ray, I think you were smart in sending in yours so quickly. You'll be at the front of the wave of cameras being sent in.

Thanks Leighton I hope you are right. It seemed like the thing to do

Nothing to report apart from one problem. For some reason or other a lot of images are "minimised" to a tiny block that no amount of clicking (left or right) will change.

I'll be absent for about 10 days - Ingrid's dad in Johannesburg is getting on a bit and we're off to see him and then will take 4 days in the Kruger Park. It's about 1000 miles so we're planning to take it easy going and coming back.

Naturally I'll have a camera but til Friday will stick to the 28 - it's not hard since most of the way is wide open spaces!

Be safe Peter and have a great trip. I can't wait to see the trip photos

Got my 55/1.2 AI today. What a beautiful piece. Hard as hell to focus but bokeh, so beautiful. Only thing that is an issue is focus is a bit stiff and crunchy. I think it will work itself out like a couple of my other lenses. For $280 to my door, not complaining.

I'm not sure Lestor I would imagine it will take a few weeks


That's a bummer...Hope it arrives sooner and we can get to see the MF glass in action again.
Btw, is the D600 recall for the US only?

Kevin, hope the focus will smoothen. Can't wait to see some shots with your dream-lens.

Peter, have a nice and safe trip!

Philippe, your Paris-scape is superbe. The red hat really make this shot (it would look great without hat, but it wouldn't have been a "Philippe-photograph").

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):
