Something Fishy With My New Lens!

How is it possible to have a lens collection and then you add one more and find what you were looking for?

That is what has happened with this lens.

The out of focus areas of this lens are great!

Now I want the D version! It never ends.

It was a hot day and all the better flower shots were wilted, so I settled for fish and a potpourri of flowers. It is raining now, so maybe tomorrow will be a better flower day!

Hi Gary,

You gotta love the DC lenses. I have a 105mm DC. Great shot of the fish. Did you use the DC feature on this shot? Sort of looks like you did set to R.

Thanks,

It was set to R in the aperture number I was using. The fish was about the only thing alive in the flower park as it was so hot and dry.

Is yours a D version? Does it give DC info to the EXIF programs? Mine does not.

Gary I am glad you like your 135 this much. I could hardly keep it off my camera. Did you need any AF fine tune on the D3 to calibrate the focus? This lens loves people...you will have to post some of those too:smile:

Why do you want the D version?

Gary, mine is the D version. All I see in the camera data (NX2 Capture) is 105mm F/2D, Focal Length: 105mm, and aperture. No information on DC such as if F or R and the DC setting. Would be nice. :smile:

I do love the bokeh from this lens (having looked at shots from Keith as well)

And don't worry, I'll keep my eyes peeled and make sure no one infringes your copyright Gary.
