Wonderful stuff, Don, but I'll leave manual focus to young guys like you. As the old saying goes, autofocus is an aging photographer's best friend.

Thanks Frank!! I am 44 BTW :smile:. Not sure if that is young or not. :wink:

It is really not that hard... that green focus confirmation dot is the key. What I have been doing is "ball parking" it based on distance and then fine tuning with the dot.

Nice image. However to be honest without a 100% crop I really cant appreciate the image quality difference from say the 70-200.
I was tempted by this lens but in the end the MF got to me and I picked up the Sigma 150 macro - absolutely love it.

Australia. But currently located in UK.
After a taste of the 100 F2... I am seriously considering the 50 also. How do you like it??
I have only used the 50/2 very briefly, it is great. I bought it at the same time when I bought my D3, 14-24/2.8 & 24-70/2.8 so haven't as yet had "free" time to play with it properly as I was busy trying to pay my credit card!!!! As you already got a 100/2 unless you want a compact lens I do not think buying 50/2 will add a lot for you. But I know Zeiss glass is addictive!!!

I am kind of getting the Zeiss bug now!!! I was considering ZF 85/1.4 but I am planning on Nikon 105/2 DC as my next purchase instead.
