    28-70 vs. 24-70

    The important (and sometimes hard) thing is to find a sharp copy of either. I use my trusty 35-200 AIS for most portraits. Its very sharp.

    How many are still using manual lenses?

    It is so great to see such a profound interest in our MF lenses. They are truly magical.

    How many are still using manual lenses?

    Thats a great resource, thanks. I haven't been around like forever... The one lens I didn't see is the Nikkor 35-200 AIS, I've got one coming so I'll grab some sample shots for the list.

    How many are still using manual lenses?

    Yes, the Katz Eye is a must for my old eyes. It really helps a lot. I put mine in myself, a little tricky..but if I can do it anyone can.

    How many are still using manual lenses?

    The one thing I really love about these lenses is they keep working! I believe there will come a day when these old lenses will become more valuable than gold (some are already!).

    Define Professional

    IMO, a professional is a person who acts and carries out in a professional matter, weather they are making money or not. Most professionals have really gray hair.

    Gym workouts

    Have you ever tried circuit weight training? Its an awesome workout. Some gyms are set up with special circuit areas, to only do the circuit training. It works the muscles and gives cardio benefits at the same time as the blood rushes from one extreme to another.

    Proof " that camera takes great pictures"

    Any fixed/single gear bicycle riders in here?

    Yea man, I love bikes. Just picked up a 1963 Sears Spaceliner thats all chrome. I'm in the process of restoring a few cool bikes right now. Two of them are hand built recumbents that someone made from old Schwinn 10 speeds. The other one is a Schwinn Super Sport Racer 10sp that I'm thinking...

    Showcase Nikon 105mm f/2.5 AI

    Its the non-AI that won't work with the DSLRs. AI or AIS will work on most, with the exception of a few models like the D40 that won't accept them.

    My name is BOND...... JAMES BOND

    Yep, I remember them. Can't believe they are still made when almost everyone knows what they are.

    OT: Found a good deal on exercise equipment

    Thats a sweet machine. I used to sell and demo those exact units and they are the best! I also like how you have it positioned beside the wine bottles!

    Backdrop issues - Please compare and give me your thoughts on if I got a good copy...

    What has been said above. The one thing than I noticed is it appears you may be using a wide angle lens for the shots you made, and that would make your background sharp. The sample from Silverlake, the lens used was a portrait lens and thats going to make the background much more creamy.

    OT: shaving made fun

    I'm not big on shaving either. If I did not take pictures of little kids I'd let the hair and the beard just go. The way I like to do it is in a hot steamy shower.

    The REAL Nikon Lens Mug

    You can buy these stainless steel coffee mugs very cheap at some discount stores. Maybe try finding one and cutting it down so it will fit inside the lens casting. ?? I like the concept, good luck!

    Hellooooooo North Carolina!

    Hey Linda, So glad you made the move O.K. Makes me really homesick. My favorite seafood eatery is Capt. Bills on the Morehead City waterfront. The Sanitary is very good also. Don't eat the grits!!!...just kidding!LOL! Seen any bugs yet?

    Look and wonder: NO digital rework here!

    Polarizing filter? Yes, I would love to visit!

    I thought they were joking at first....

    Linda, I love to hear stories like this. I'm sure they are looking forward to a vacation at the ocean and get some pictures for themselves while they are there. The beaches/bays and ocean can make a spectacular background for people images. Just be careful not to get any sand in your camera or lens.

    Thats not too bad. Last I checked, Gary Fong was charging $100,000 for a wedding.

    One shot with AIS 50-135mm lens (anybody remembers???)

    Beautiful capture of the Lady! This is the same lens I use for 90% portraits and I love it! Always great to see your images.

    Hiking training using Elliptical cross trainers

    Hey Doug, All I can say is to make sure you are comfortable on it. There should be no pain in the joints. I use to sell these things at a fitness store and we encouraged people to go through a complete workout on a machine before they purchased. There were many I could not work out on myself as...

    Samantha portrait with octabox

    You nailed it pretty good. The adjustment Marina did really helps it out. Many times I have used two lights, but with one or two people it usually works better to use one light and a reflector. Nice work, Love the expression..very pretty!

    Morning Portrait "Change"

    Nice street capture! I like how the cross fell on the forehead of the print.

    Found me a Tokina 400mm SD ATX f/5.6

    The lens in the image is the AT-X version. If you look closely on the side you can read AT-X. The red ring confirms that also. I had one awhile back and really enjoyed it. It seemed that I was always longing for something faster, though. They are sharp!

    Well hello North Carolina

    Beaufort is pretty mild regarding the bugs. I'm talking about when you get away from Beaufort, that can be bothersome. I was born and raised on the coast and have seen many things that makes me warn people about the dangers. Once I saw some people come from the outer banks and they had a son...
