    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    David,
    Do you find one ZF has a more "Leica" rendering than the others? This is more important for my needs than the fl. The ZF25 pictures you posted have exactly the rendering I am looking for - would the other ZFs have a similar look and feel? If so then my choice is down to fl. Processing also would be a factor, would you share your methodology? Thanks.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    First of all I have no idea what you shoot and shooting close and distant images is very different with all these lenses so to talk about the Leica look we need to be much more specific about what you're shooting and which lens, otherwise the entire conversation is pointless. At this point Zeiss lenses are good enough imo not to bother with the hassle of using converted Leica R lenses and from what I've seen the Zeiss has the upper hand in some cases.

    Look at your other thread I posted something about rendering there.

    As far as conversions go, the images that I posted here were quickies, I used PS to convert to BW, adjust contrast to taste, resize, and sharpen for small web images which is fine for posting here, I wouldn't waste more time for this type of thing. On the other hand if I was going to print them I would use Fuji's software for raw conversion to extract the best and deepest tonal range and then I would work them more carefully in PS, but at the end of the day there's not much to do with this type of image, specially if you convert it to BW, color is more work for me.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    I am just returning to photography after a long absence - mainly motivated by all the images I have seen on this forum. At this point I want to find a nice walk around ZF lens for general photography, but with a preference towards city/landscapes as opposed to portraiture for example. I am trying to keep my kit to a minimum (while saving for an M8).

    Perhaps depending on the body you choose (FX vs DX, for example), you may alter your choice, but the ZF 35/2 is a truly amazing lens, and a very useful focal length especially on the FX body. Not a bad portrait lens either. One the other hand, as David's wonderful images above attest, that 25 flat rocks!!

    There is a re-enactment camp a few blocks from my house this weekend. The weather is terrible and the turnout was not that good. A few brave souls were there.

    Great shots all, Cindy. That lens works beautifully on the Nikon.

    The weather doesn't look too bad from those images.

    Thanks, Lloyd. It is cold and very windy. It is possibly getting down to freezing tonight and the participants are sleeping in tents with just wood fires for warmth.

    Cindy, I like them - and; the cold, the wind might make the acting part a bit easier? Primitive conditions and all that ...

    Btw; you said to Alex that daughters are precious treasures. I agree (have 2) - and sometimes they come up with granddaughters as well! For example like this one.

    LLoyd, I would be using the ZF on a D700, and you are right the 25 has a very nice rendering, but then so does the 35 and the 28. Decisions decisions - I might get a dart board.

    I have the ZF 35 2.0 for the Nikon D3 and I am in love with this lens. It is so sharp, has the beautiful Zeiss rendering, great Bokeh, smooth focusing, etc

    Did i say I love this lens?

    A friend who at age 60 is still competing in triathlon. She's done over 700. In this race yesterday, she was 149th out of 527 women. She easily won her age group... more than 8 minutes ahead of the nearest opponent.

    For a woman of 60, yes indeed.

    Here's one of my wife on the run of the same triathlon. She finished 7th overall out of 527 women. Oldest woman in the top 30, and the only grandmother. She keeps me young!

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Scandinavians will understand this

    Yesterday was the Norwegian National Day, 17th May, with the children's parade in the morning, and a big dinner party in the evening. One of the participants have complained, jokingly, for many years that with should get rid of the silly tradition of eating salmon at the party when real Norwegian food, like Norwegian meatballs (kjøttkaker), is so much better.

    Yesterday, his dream came through. So while all the rest of us had to suffer through endless mountains of pink fish, he could enjoy his meatballs

    What a beautiful marsh Cindy, of course I'm assuming that the weather is still cold enough not to be eaten alive by bugs!

    Leif, what a lively portrait!

    Viablex you seem to find every abandoned building in your neighborhood, you're not a contractor by any chance?

    And you Lloyd, with this kind of athletic women in your life, they should be kicking your butt into great shape to keep up!

    Mr. Jorgen, great portraits as usual even if I don't get the joke...

    Lloyd! Your wife is really impressing me! my oldest son is into that kind of agony-seeking (triathlon) - and he´s only 34.

    Jorgen, the snap of my granddaughter was after the chocolate cake. more important; do I detect mashed potatos on that plate of kjoettkaker??? Or is it ertestuing (pea-stew)? I sure hope so!

    Thanks, Leif. She never ceases to amaze me. She's a 10-time Ironman Triathlon finisher, has run across the Grand Canyon ("Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim" 48 miles) 3 times, runs Ultramarathons, marathons, etc., etc. Never did anything at all athletic as a kid; sang in the choir in college. Couldn't even swim or ride a bike until her 30s. She's completely reinvented herself... she's my hero!

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Viablex and Lloyd,
    The 80-200 AF-S @ f/2.8 is the perfect lens, unless you consider the weight and bulk. It's huge, but sharpness and bokeh is directly imported from heaven. I consider buying one more if I can find one. It doesn't matter what camera I fit it on, it has never failed. Even the humble D80 shines with this lens (except for the autofocus, which is great on the S5, but in my view the weakest part of the D80).

    Leif,
    No, the potatoes are new potatoes fried in oil, and the red stuff is "rørte tyttebær", whatever that is in English. The man is a kjøttkake purist, and only the best will do

    Just returned to my D700 after a long (and still going strong) love affair with Leica M8. D700 excels in where M8 fails: High-ISO performance. These photos were taken on my way back to the European side of Istanbul, aboard an old ferry with excessive engine vibration. Hope you like it.
    Best regards,
    Osman

    Nice photos Osman! I do think the D700/D3 make good companions to the M8 -- they pick up the slack in the areas where the M8 fails -- very high ISO, high speed shooting, weather sealing etc, while the M8 wins where lens signature and quality, portability, and discretion are more important.
    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!
