James - I tried that Milk Bread in my bread machine, particularly good as toast. Thanks for featuring it!

Georgebo - Thanks for the kind words.

Some more with the D810 and 16mm f/3.5

Jay,
Glad you liked it. I am enjoying the sunshine through your lighthouse photos.

Some IR over the last 4 weeks

10 image stitch with the Nikkor-P 180mm f2.8 ai'd






Ivy on my tool shed with the 16mm f3.5 ai






Where my in ground pool use to be, and vegetable garden has been for about 4-5 years. The ground sank, and the dark patches are another 10 cubic yards of top soil. Again the 16mm f3.5 ai from 7 vertical image stitch






Lilac (which changed color this year to white flowers?) with the 16mm f3.5 ai

The garden looks to be a very peaceful spot, love to see the same image in color.

V1 came out to play with the 55mm f/2.8 mounted on FT-1. For extra interest I added PK-13. That is hard to shoot handheld but tripod was not an option. With the sun behind me, the lens cast a shadow on the bottom right which was only acceptable with a B&W conversion. So, this is it.

Mounted on Nikon 1, the sweet spot seems to be F4, and it was today.

Picked up an Ai'd Nikkor-P 105 f/2.5 the other day. A little beat up, but optically it's pretty nice.

Shot with the 100 f/2.8 Series E on the D5



While I had the dusty mousepad backdrop out, I also took a photo of the D5 and F5 together. Still amazed at how much Nikon got right with the F5. Twenty years between these two with a significant change in imaging technology and workflow, and yet the F5's design stuck around. Just an excellent piece of hardware. Shot with that new 105 on the D3s.

Man, this one and the valley image on the last page are excellent. Really nice compositions, and your processing on these reminds me a lot of Ektachrome 100.

F5 is my favorite film camera for handling. That is a good looking combo there

Leighton, what a view. We spent a week at the very edge of the Smokies in Tennessee last fall about a week before peak color and it was lovely. We'd love to make it up your way if fuel cost ever comes back down!

Hey Alan, if you're ever up here again, send me a note so we can get together.

Love the looks of the F5 over the D5. It's all in the shape of the prism box.

Wish they would have carried over the removable/interchangeable viewfinder and focusing screen options like the film F(x) bodies had. But with tilt LCD and computer screen viewfinders, I guess it is a moot point now.

Ahh, the F5, what memories. I think I still have a couple of 4-pack AA lithiums somewhere in the house :-) I think Nikon used the F5 to prep their users for the upcoming battery sucking digital cameras!. The F5 was my favorite film AF body, but I ended up using the F100 more simply because it was smaller and lighter. Just had to manage mirror vibration.

I'm surprised to see that the single digit D's are larger than the F5. I would have expected the opposite.

I agree with Leighton that the change to digital has resulted in less aesthetically pleasing camera designs (and lens designs too I might add). The Nikon mirrorless aesthetics are even worse IMHO, the Z5/6/7 "prism" housing is just ugly in my opinion, especially how the "prism" housing terminates with that odd cutout that seems to serve no function other than to highlight the larger Z-mount opening. This has carried over to the new Z9 as well. I get it Nikon, you have a new mount that has opened up a lot of possibilities.

On a more positive note, the Z lenses seem to have stepped up optical performance by a fair amount, so kudos where it is due.

Oh yeah, for handling, Nikon knocked it out of the park. It feels more dense and compact, buttons are right where you expect them, and even the rubber, twenty years later, feels better to me than the D5/D3s/D2x. And that red strip where your fingertips sit, that feels softer than anything else on the camera which offers a totally different tactile experience than the modern bodies.

I like the "v" shape that's on the top of the D5, D3, D500, etc., it's sporty, but I agree. The F5 has immensely classic looks. And no worries on the name, I've not shared it
