Nope - Nikon glass on a Nikon body (film or digital) - Curtis will chime in with the full details.

Ronny -

Not to poke at you, because I think you are a guy that can take a great picture with any lens, but why do you have both the 135/2 AIS and the 135/2 APO Zeiss? In a couple of hours I'm going to be in the same situation . .

From the very first post in this thread...

This thread is devoted to those photographers shooting with Nikon digital and film cameras who mount manual focus Nikon lenses, specifically those lenses with either Nikkor or Series E Nikon labels.


Folks using Nikon manual focus lenses on other camera systems (Fuji/Canon/Leica/Sony) are directed to the Alternative Gear forum. This thread is reserved for folks using those lenses on Nikon film and digital cameras. Sorry about that...

Sticking to Nikkor glass on a Nikon film camera. 8.5cm f2 S-mount, on the S2 rangefinder.

Here's a comparison using this combo with the UltraMax400 vs. AgfaPhoto Vista 200. Lighting was very low in this room as in much of the Walters Art Museum. This is a picture of a Roman sarcophagus. The entire room was full of several, and the helpful guard informed me that all the sarcophagi belonged to a family, clearly a well to do one.

Sorry about the slightly different crops, but color difference intrigued me. Its possible for the UltraMax I closed down the lens to f/4 and did the Agfa one at f/2.8. Or was it f/2.8 and f/2?

Last couple from the set of rolls developed recently.

Indian goddess, probably about 6th or 7th century AD at the Walters Art Museum. UltraMax 400 with S2 rangefinder + 8.5 f2 PC.

And finally, this is on Ektar 100, using the 13.5cm f 3.5 QC + S2.

Thank you all for the messages and the PM. The men and women here are fine people.

The ambulance took me home yesterday to Polk County I am at rehab facility. Listening to the young attendant telling me how his wife to be is graduating as a civil engineer and he was to serve as an EMS paramedic let me dwell on their dreams not my misfortune. Life is so good!

Picture 1 is for Leighton, a door on a house within several hundred feet of a five hundred year old Spanish fort. It's artsy, weird and maybe has some Rorschach value.

Raphael Mile marker ONE of the Spanish trail ... the other end is in San Diego. Your mission should you choose to accept it. I hated hitting the like button on the wildfires shots. Your home is your castle and threats like these are not something one should deal with.

Photo 3 ... Emergency room with the D700 my toes should be pointing UP.

Photo 4 today. I may be lucky and learn the front filter is he only thing broken. Focus ring is very stiff. Tomorrow a wheel chair and another lens.

Thank you all!

Ken, as moved as I was by your tragedy, I have to admit feeling a pang of remorse at the possibility a 55 f/1.2 S.C. had bitten the dust. I guess the lens is no more precious than you or me, but we expect to leave the mortal coil and there is absolutely NO reason that these much loved lenses need to go. Granted, as the Buddhists say, we should meditate on the vase already broken, or in this case, the lens already broken but... in the same way they'll never replicate my 1965 Stingray coupe, they will never make more of these beautiful lenses.

I'd mention to you what we learned when sending Nikki around the world and it took a tumble. APC in Chicago was able to replace the front of that forty year old lens. I would never assume that your 55 f/1.2 S.C. is ready for the scrap heap. You're a resourceful man and I've no doubt you'll find your way through both the physical challenges and the practical challenge of getting that lens back into working order...

Glad you're able to visit... if you see any pretty nurses take a photo for Reagan...

Be well.

Warning! Anyone visiting the thread I started on the Golden Gate bridge should be alerted to the fact I'm posting images taken with a Canon camera AND, gasp... an AF lens...

But remember... I sold ALL THAT GEAR to invest my money in Nikon manual focus glass. This is where my heart belongs, but if I'm to post photos about the bridge, I need to reach back in time to those Canon days. In fact, I got some great shots back then but I was too young to know better...

Nuno, superb portraits of your friend and his family. Great use of a stellar lens.

Will be back hopefully later today to go through last many pages and posts in detail.

Leaving one more pic here from the visit to Walters Art Museum.

It seems I have been a bad boy .....

So to make amends I have posted some more toobs pix in the Macro World section.

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1001614/35#12350264

The Peony in question was taken using the 85mm f1.4

And here is a straight non tube shot of the double headed flower at f1.4

I see Nuno is having a ball with his too .... gotta love that lens !!

Steve

I'm extra aware of my surroundings when traveling ... kinda extended my spidey sense radius by a good few yards
Which also means I make notes and 'snapshots' in my mind of landmarks, steps, turns, so I can orientate myself if need be (walk confidently, no whipping out of phones or maps in the street unless seated in a cafe, etc)
This was my mental landmark; nondescript stall selling roast meats tucked away by the corner, with small park barely 500sqft bordering its front
Used this for 3 days, coming back here to recenter if I need to ... until the day Dean told me the park is where all the druggies, junkies and streetwalkers hang out
Great



only sold shrink wrapped by Zichar, on Flickr



. Nice shot.

Around that park is where I've been spending a lot of time with the GR

You see some truly weird stuff in a big crazy city with many back streets. A couple of weeks ago I shot an image of a wheel chair full of porno books ... go figure
