That dragonfly image is extraordinary Ronny and shows how well the 180mm 2.8 ED does at close in images.

You all got me enthused to go out in the yard with the 55mm 1.2 CRT, so suffer the consequences!!!

Finally a likeness of the 300mm 4.5 photos so you can compare the quality, all my photos are at 100% on,Flickr as this is a Hobby and happy to share. I dare say the 180mm on extensions would match the quality of the 55mm 1.2 CRT. (don't shoot me!)

Wow, that dragonfly image with the 180mm AI-S is impressive.

Would you know if the AF version of that lens (8/6 formula) come anywhere close to being as good as the AI-S (5/5 formula) for macro work with rings?

Love those car pics. According to Jay Leno the Citroen is the most comfortable car ever built.
Whenever I know I'll be taking car pics I throw a polarizing filter into the bag to lessen the window reflections.


Thanks. The Citroens of the era all had air suspension, I recall seeing them in the UK, the rear raising up when the driver turned the key.

I did use a polariser but still couldn't remove all the reflections for the steering wheel shot but kinda liked the reflections of the old pumps.

Here's another Citroen, not as good looking but it did have a Maserati engine !

I've been out of town and out of touch for a few days, but enjoyed catching up. I've especially enjoyed all of the flower photos everyone has been posting.

It's kind of hard to see, but this is a Civil War cannon at Rocky Face Ridge Park in Dalton, GA.

First test shot
Sony A7r III + Nikon Nikkor 300mm 4.5 ED IF AI-s 36mm tube
somewhat mixed feelings about the lens performance
Most test more but plenty CA wide open..but it's probably quite ok, sometimes maybe not everything older gets so well from 42MP all the time

The 63mm f2.8 (N) EL-Nikkor showed up today. It really is a gorgeous lens. Will try and capture that beauty in the next few days. Meanwhile here are more Daffodils with the Nikkor-P ai'd 180mm f2.8 and 20mm extension.

Edit - and the modified TC-16A

I really enjoy your museum fossile shots Glen.

My dealings with fossile material have been of a more practical nature lately. I had some more requests to manufacture mammoth ivory dice, and such I did. Have another shipment of mammoth ivory coming to me. There is a small business in Germany who have been dealing in fossiles for 20 years, and I can get the smaller pieces I need for my craft projects there.

Taken with my trustworthy D800 and the 35-70 f3,5 Ai-S Zoom Nikkor at f11

Thanks, Buddy. Those look like some finely crafted dice, indeed! I'm guessing mammoth ivory is quite pricey, considering that it must have extremely limited availability.

Here are some photos of the badlands in the area where the fossils at the museum were found, brought you by the Fuji X-E2 and unspecified MFNG.

Glen, indeed mammoth ivory sells at around $1/gram of ivory at the moment. In Europe the only source for usable mammoth ivory is Syberia, and since the Russian/Ukraine conflict, almost none of that is getting out of Russia. Even without the conflict, the arwea in Syeria where mammoth ivory can be excavated from the permafrost is so remote that the workers travel there at the end of Autumn, when the swamps surrounding the area are frozen up and can be crossed by trucks. They then stay there during winter, spring and summer until the swamps and rivers freeze up again. Any excavated mammoth ivory is transported from the site by the transports bringing new work crew and picking up the tired and ill.

Great series Andy! Love the colors.

We have a lot of yellow here, but from pollen

Lunch time pop in

Will post one from this past Saturday to bump the thread along.

Using the natural vignetting of the Nikkor 2.5cm LTM lens to frame this look down at the Chauga River. Spring leaves busting on the trees now.

These are beautiful Ronny, the IF lenses are sharp but have this quirky aberration, the ED non IF are better - 400mm 5.6 ED non IF, 300mm 4.5 ED non IF, the original 600mm, 800mm, 1200mm ED lens heads are supposedly great but I have never seen one.

Nice! the 63mm 2.8 is supposed to be better than the 3.5, this supports the notion.
