  1. Alright I'm on a prime orgy, I bought my first manual prime (35 f1.4) 2 weeks ago and I love the look of the Ais lenses. So if you have a shot with a Ais prime please show it off. I'm looking to get some more to add to my collection.

    I have a bunch online with my 50mm f/1.2 AIS here:

    A couple of examples:

    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/4.0    1/40s    ISO 3200

    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/2.8    1/50s    ISO 3200

  5. I love Ai(S) prime glass. I have shot with many of them, ranging from 20 to 500mm. Until a little over a year ago, I shot with Ai(S) glass exclusively (on my D2x).
    Still have a select few that I hung onto :smile:.

    I just picked up a mint 35 1.4 that I am playing with
    of course manual focusing is a challenge
    but I love the look

    I have a minty 24/2.8 AI up for sale...:wink:
