    Not a worthy snap anywhere in site today...not even a detail shot. Sure would have been a good day for testing the cold weather capabilities of the camera though. ...

    More post-dusk photography with the 28/2. The Mickey Mouse record player photo was taken at ISO 3200 and very low shutter speed...extremely low light, still managed to get something very useable with the help of the D700's live view! ...

    Glass Key Photo in SF had a used 180/2.8 AI-S ED for a mere $100! Reason: slightly out of round lens hood, dent on the focusing ring, and some marks on the front element. Zero effect on images though and I knew right away that I needed to get thi...

    Ok Sampang you have inspired me to tote the 100 E with me tomorrow...it has been awhile since I have used it and it will be nice to see what it is like on the Df. Maybe I will get brave and ask a pretty girl for a picture... ...

    csampang replied to a discussion, Nikon Series E 75-150/3.5
    If I ever buy a mf zoom it will be this one. Keep them coming sir! It is indeed as good as advertised, and is surprisingly decent with bokeh at 150mm! I did fix the zoom creep with electrical tape at portions of the barrel. Having said that,...

    Nikon Series E 75-150/3.5
    The zoom lens best known for its use by Galen Rowell in the 80s! Also notorious for zoom creep, which my copy indeed has. (I've given it the electrical tape treatment on the barrel to try to stymie it) I'm really surprised there isn't a thread on t...

    Tried out the 75-150 on my D700 for the first time. I still find it a bit amusing that Nikon didn't bother to input the 75mm or 150mm focal lengths in their Non-CPU Lens data bank menus, but DID put in 43mm and 86mm for the famous 43-86 consumer zoo...

    Nikkor-N 28mm f2
    So I happened upon a great deal for one of these (AI converted!) at Adolph Gasser Photo in SF today...really fun to play around and work with it wide open. Like my 135/2, it seems especially suited for medium-distance captures. ...

    Daytime shots confirmed what I had surmised last night: the infinity focus issues go away from f/5.6 on. (This contrasts with my 135/2 that still struggles with infinity even stopped down) At night, it exhibits the same fun "glow&q...

    A brief test of sharpness and bokeh at minimum focusing distance, shutter speed 1/40, ISO 400 for all three photos. Even stopping down just once to f/2.8 improves the sharpness of the lens significantly - I have a feeling this'll make it more useful...
