Had some loose change in your pockets? I'll bet you don't now!

Very interesting lens. Congrats.

It would be nice to see how this lens differentiates itself in practice from others, being a superachromat, so hope you post some images that show what it can do.

Thanks, I think this lens is the last drug for me , to buy it I had a looong decision.It's really an inevitable end for somebody.

112 mm Tamron Normal mc filter for Adaptall2 300 2.8. After reading up most people say the lens is actually sharper with this filter. Personally it is hard to see any difference.

Took the plunge..
Well...af is a bit of non-existent in my collection. I got a bunch of lenses in F-mount though: 105/2.5, 55/2.8 Micro, 50/2, 50/1.4 Ai's (not Ai-S), Kiron 70-210/3.5, ZF35/2 and a lot of assorted Adaptall SP2...

Recommend any Nikkor AF lenses? Perhaps not the G series...

Ed: It just arrived this morning. I still can't open the box - keep walking around it like a cat. Will probably take me a week or so..

Haha, okay, I will just say nothing about this quirk Maybe pick up an extra battery or two. Careful when you buy them, I believe that it uses a different battery than the D200 (which has a CCD, btw, and is meant to have great colour, if nonsensical high ISO performance; I have wanted to try one and compare).

I use the newer G zooms, the 24-70 is perfect, and don't know much about the older ones, but if you want to keep up the theme, the 35-70/2.8 is meant to be good (no typo).

http://kenrockwell.com/nikon/3570.htm

For the studio, it could be a perfect set of focal lengths from normal to tele effective. As a neutral lens, the 60 Micro is very good, very neutral rendering, but maybe you have that covered with the 55 Micro, I don't know it. The 105 you have is obviously fantastic, one of the best lenses ever made with beautiful rendering.

Maybe try a manual focus length first, and see how you get on, perhaps the 55 or 105? The 50/2 might also be worth a try. Alex in Russia recently calibrated his focusing screen on his S5 carefully, and found that he got a high keeper rate.

I am very curious to hear how you get on with this camera, whether positive or negative. Do spend some time processing images from it and see how you like the files. Maybe read the manual first, to avoid getting stumped by the oddities in the menus.

Nothing fancy, but for 50 USD I can't complain:

Interesting follow-up....

I mentioned a few pages above when I bought this that the aperture was a bit oily/sticky and wouldn't shut from wide open...it did from F4 but not from 2.8....sooooo.....

I let it sit for a month @ F16.... and apparently the leaves dried up enough so the leaves now close from F2.8......nice....

For once, not a purchase post from me, but a moan.

This Tamron Adaptall 2 - to PK/PKA adapter just sold on evilbay Aus for over $100...I 'gave' mine away last year when I sold it for $25

I enjoyed them so much when I shot Canon, so I finally caved in and bought the ZF.2 mount versions of the Zeiss 21mm f2.8 Distagon , 50mm f1.4 Planar, 100mm f2 Makro-Planar, and just to see what all the fuss was about, I got a 135 f2 Apo Sonnar as well.

Congratulations! For what camera?

I am not sure I would have bought both the 100/2MP and 135/2AS without trying one first, but maybe you use teles more than I?
