    During my recent trip to Istanbul, my dslr kit was d300 + zeiss 35/2 and nikkor 50/1.4.

    The zeiss was superb handling everything i threw at it:

    nice, but flowers or plants to left would have been nice instead of a sales poster. :)  Next time move model. ;)

    Were you on a boat in the Bosporus when you photographed the Mosque at night with your 35mm f/2?
    I like them all.

    the more I read about this lens and see samples from it, the more interested I get. Here's my question... I noticed its a 'manual focus' lens. Does the D300 control the focusing in this lens like it does on a Nikon 50 1.4 or is a fuuuullly manual lens where I have to do all the work? lol

    It's manual focus.

    It does meter.

    Doug thanks for your comments. It was a candid shot without having the time to get the bg right.

    it is a manual focus lens, and use of the focus indicator on the camera body
    works well most of the time.

    it is a fully manual lens, however it does meter on the d300 and you can
    set the parameters for a non-cpu lens in the d300.

    I like the shot of her, just that stuff to left is distracting and rather unattractive, compared to her, who is nice and attractive looking. :)
