    Astroidea,

    Isn't it amazing how lenses seem to multiply.... LOL
    I have a curio cabinet shelf dedicated to vintage lenses now, complete with desiccant bags.
    (Crissy and Warren are a bad influence hehehehe)


    Crissy,

    Awesome pics!
    IMHO, several of the vintage Soviet/Russian lenses are easily some of the best bang for the buck out there.
    But you are the one that taught me that huh :-)
    My Jupiter 9 is one of my favorite lenses now..... it's awesome.

    Caveat emptor, there are several versions of the J9 and decades of production runs.....

    Beautiful pics!

    I thought I would bring this thread back, since I got a new camera.

    I got a Nikon D7000, and in these two pics I used the Nikon 60mm AF-S Micro lens.

    It took me quite a while to save for this camera, and I definitely think it was worth it. I'm starting to get used to it now but I still need my tripod back. . .

    Even with high iso, it takes great quality pics:




    My strange kitty. Only thing that bothers me is the right eye.


    *edit*

    I fixed the kitty picture with photoshop.

    Shot with my Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 50mm f/4 macro lens (screw mount). Highest reproduction is 1:2 without a tube so I couldn't get any closer:

    Halictid bee - had a metallic green color that didn't capture in the shots.



    So there are native bees around, why don't they pollinate my Sarracenia or Darlingtonia for me?

    Someday, Nikon macro lenses are gonna be cultish. Best glass you can get for Nikons, and the bokeh is great...

    Love the photos crystal! That dog is cute!

    I really need to buy a lens adapter. Hopefully tomorrow. Should have it for ICPS.

    Devon, clean your kitty's eyes! It has crud... Also, buy the poor thing a wig...

    Olympus OMD-EM5 with Panasonic 12mm-35mm (24-70mm 35mm equivalent) X-lens f/2.8

    I just love micro four thirds. It's such a portable system and still you manage great shots.

    @Peatmoss:

    His eyes usually are clean, but it just so happened that they weren't when I took this pic.

    And he's supposed to be slightly hairless too, because he is a Devon Rex cat.

    Great pics Brokken and NaN. I really like the first pic of your dog, Brokken.
