  2. Excellent shots.

    What kind of modification?

    Thanks Mike. The lens was pre-AI, so part of the aperture ring needed to be sanded down to fit properly on my D300 without breaking the AI tab. I could've gotten a metering chip as well, but I really only shoot aperture- and manual-priority 99% of the time so it wouldn't have done much good.

    I think these were all shot at f/4, by the way. It's just a hair soft wide open, or maybe I just can't nail the focus THAT much. haha.
  4. F4 is still pretty shallow, nice work.

    I have the 105, 1.8 AIS. Bought a DK-17M eyepiece..really helps with focus.

    Looking forward to use the lens a lot more.

    Thank you :) 

    Mike...I've been interested in that! But it won't fit on the D300 (unless you want to glue it...). Maybe there's a third party equivalent or something though.
  7. Nice shots and congrats on the new lens
