    Perfect. Great catch, and I love the conversion.

    "Police Horse on Duty"

    I took another look at these photos and cropped in a bit to focus on the kids and the horse. This is the newest AF-S lens. Thanks for C & C. Cheers.

    Beautiful series of images. Wonder subject matter, lots of color, etc. I'm also impressed with this new 50's performance. OOF rendering seems very pleasing.

    Holy cats, Rob. Those are stunning. I just put my 85 PC up for sale on the classifieds here, but looking at that second shot I may have to rethink that decision. Now if I could just use it as wonderfully as you do!

    Thanks Lloyd for those comments, unfortunately I lied, though not intentionally, as all of the previous were done with the 24 PC/E. But the following pictures were done with the 85 PC, a lens I would never be without. In fact the only two lenses I used for this trip were the 24 & 85 PC on the D3 plus some work done with the Betterlight scan back which I will post later. Just an fyi, I tested the newer version of this lens against my old one, resolution was about the same give or take a few points, however the newer nano coated crystal glass does have more contrast and pop out of the box.

    The next two photos are 3 frame stitches with the 85 PC using the shift function, and the last a single frame 85 PC image, all from the D3 and all converted in LR.

    Those are all stunners, Rob. (When was there something you posted which was not?!?) My 85pc is the older version, and I don't think a new one is in the cards right now, so I may have to keep what I have.

    Thanks again Lloyd. The 24 PC is very nice lens, fun to use but do wish I also had the 45 PC as well. It would have come in handy in conjunction with these other two. Will do on link for the LF photos.

    I can believe that... the 45 would be a very useful focal length.

    Thanks... and I look forward to that link.

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Somebody needed a photo from Vietnam last night, so I went through some of those from bygone times, like in "earlier this year". I think I need a trip to Hanoi

    I posted this one earlier, in a partly b&w version and a different crop, but "Girls on Vespa"... can there ever be too much of such a good thing?

    Alex below are a few 100% crops per your request.

    Some are better than others having more to do with user error most likely. I think the crops should be fairly obvious as to which photos they go with but if you get confused let me know. All of the jpegs have a compression of 9 out of 12 in PS.

    Hope this helps.

    Pretty impressive for crops, Rob. That one in the lower right could stand on its own as an image.

    You should see the crops from the scan back, sort of sick and twisted by comparison! Don't get me wrong, love my Nikons, but...

    I have no doubt about that Rob. I've seen some of Stephen Johnson's work with the Betterlight. Looking forward to seeing your for sure!!

    I really dig it to see the excellent D2XS DX sensor used for studio work, where much larger sensors usually rule. Well done.

    And Matt, that machine has a lot of personality

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    I picked up my latest acquisition today; an old Nikkor 300mm f/4.0 AF, no S. Slow focusing on the D80, probably better on the S5, but I just love lenses where I don't need to worry about what is the optimal focal length and aperture. This one is sharp enough at 300mm and f/4

    I didn't really buy it for street candids, but there weren't any tigers or bald eagles at Siam Square today

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    I'm very impressed by the colours from the D80 with this lens. Can't wait to try it with the S5.

    Oh, and btw, I stopped at a Mac shop on the way, just to check the price of the latest Mini. Unfortunately, I couldn't resist trying the new iMac 27". Bad move Very bad move Until today, I actually thought that my LG monitor was ok. It's not, or at least not nearly as ok as the display on that iMac.

    Why can't Apple hide their shops somewhere out in the forest or in the rice fields, to protect weak souls like myself from wanting the latest, greatest, and depriving us from sleep at night and whatnot

    Matt excellent view of that church, very potent!

    Jorgen you will love the new 300 F4, had the older version myself and now the newer one, both are outstanding optically. Can't help you with the new iMac though. You're on your own there buddy

    Lloyd if you are still interested, here is the link to a few Betterlight images from Zion on the LF forums. http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showth...?t=4646&page=4

    and also a more complete gallery of images at my website

    Thanks all. That's a very cool perspective, Matt. "Methodist Sigma"? I thought Japanese lenses were Shintoists

    I didn't really buy it for street candids, but there weren't any tigers or bald eagles at Siam Square today

    My favorite ultra wide zoom, kind of underrated...

    In some ways I even prefer it to even the 14-24 Nikkor which I ended up selling after comparing it to the Sigma.
