Attention New Members and those new registering!
We had a lot of problems with spammers and bot attacks with the stock measures provided by the software. The 7 for registration was a fix that we came up with on our own that has worked quite well. Yes it is a PIA for both you and administration to put you onto your chosen username.
If you come back on and your login does not work retry with your username without the 7.

Thanks for joining us from the administration.

At 105mm and f5.6
Bitterly cold for October on this session.
Image above is a crop and has had some slight contrast and sharpening adjustments.

Image

Macro setting at the 105mm position and f5.6.
Shot on monochrome.
Image is a crop- the close focus distance is a bit on the longish side.
It is otherwise un-manipulated.
Lens pictured has been a work-horse for me, and it's one that I keep coming back to.
5 screw "K" conversion with the odd long prong over the rear element.

Image

High contrast subject study in monochrome.
At the 35mm setting and f5.6
A bit more barrel curvature than I was expecting, but not un-reasonable.
The generic for 50mm focal length collapsing rubber hood I was using is vignetting here. I will have to find a proper hood for this lens.

Image

Same image details as above.

Image

Airport control tower at 105mm and f5.6.
The white horizontal bar above the glass dome is radar apparatus, and rotates rapidly- about 90 r.p.m.

Image

At f4 and 105mm here.
Good contrast, especially for the dull and heavy over-cast skies we've had.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

I finally found out how to use the macro function on this lens.
Rather than turning the focus ring, racking the push-pull zoom collar is surprisingly effective.

Image

These are crops at ISO 1600.
Minimum focus distance is still a bit long at about two feet.

I had not seen these dollar coins before.
Sis had bought change somewhere to do laundry, and this was mixed in with the cdn dollar coins...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail
