    Nikon Showcase Nikkor 25-50mm f/4 ai-s

    Looks like another lens without a showcase thread. I had my first outing with it yesterday, on a dreary winters day. I quite enjoyed using it, although sometime while adjusting the focal length with heavy gloves on, I would accidentally move the aperture a bit. At the 25mm end, it needs a...

    Nikon Showcase Nikkor ai-s 20mm f/3.5

    I didn’t see a showcase for this lens, and my first outing was with it yesterday. More pics to come, but I REALLY like this lens. It needs a little tweaking in post to bring out the best in it, but that’s limited to things like vignetting and contrast, not distortion.

    Nikon Showcase AI, AI-S, and AI-P Lenses

    Didn’t see a thread for the lovely vintage Nikon (and more modern Voigtlander) glass we have in F mount! Was testing a 105mm f/2.5 AI-S this evening and loved how beautiful the rendering was. I shouldn’t have been surprised, but I figured I’d make a thread and see what vintage examples others...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon Nikkor-AF 28-105mm f3.5-4.5 D

    I continue my ''quest'' to try out, or even keep, if possible, as many old Nikkor AF lenses as I can. This 28-105mm AF-D, I wanted to get for a long time. I got it off eBay, in perfect mechanical and esthetic condition. Inside, there is fungus. It doesn't seem to affect the image quality all...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f1.4 D

    Another Ebay purchase. This time MINT! Almost factory condition. I wish I had a D700 for this lens. I think, it would show the character of the lens better than my D90.

    Nikon Showcase Viltrox 24mm f/1.8 in Z Mount

    I know there is a Nikon Z f/1.8 Primes Showcase, but thought I'd segregate out the third party and give Viltrox it's own. this one for the 24mm. I'll probably be the only one posting in here for a while, but at least this will give others a look. Not much to see about it right now. Only got...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE)

    This lens ... is just great (for what it is). It's not the fastest, it's not the sturdiest, it's not the best Z lens - but it doesn't try to be all that, either. It's just a very good lens that does reliably well, whatever subject matter you throw at it. If only Nikon had chosen to put it into...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon Zfc

    I'll start us off. I did have some images that I posted over on the Z 16-50 thread taken with the Z fc. This start is with the Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8S prime on the Z fc.

    Nikon Showcase Nikon Z 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR

    Lets see some of those images showcased here from the Nikon Z 16-50 pancake zoom!! I'll start. Please note that I got this lens to go with my upcoming Z fc purchase. So I used it in this post with the Z6 and then used Topaz Gigapixel AI to go from the native 9-10mp image and upsampled it 2x...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR

    I recently picked up one of these and am very happy with it. This is on a Z5 via FTZ. Output is very nice. AF speed is snappy. It's long on the front with the FTZ but pretty light in weight. Very good value imo. Especially with the current sale. There are compatibility guidelines and some...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon Z f/1.8 Primes

    For each camera system, there's always talk about a "Holy Trinity" of primes the existence of which can actually define that system. Well, Nikon has done a fabulous job providing a solid set of affordable (though not exactly cheap), sufficiently compact primes, all of which share a maximum...

    Nikon Showcase Color or B&W? Learning Capture One

    So got done at work last evening and there was still a bit of light. Now I’ve spent a little time playing with the files in Capture One. Which of these variations do you prefer? Or perhaps the better question is why? The B&W seems boring somehow and I'm not sure how come. The color and light...

    Nikon Showcase Nikkor AF-D 28~105 F3.5~4.5, Aspheric Optics, Internal Focus

    The recent Thread on the AF-Nikkor 28~85 F3.5~F4.5 made me miss my old lens, traded off almost 25 years ago against my first Nikon Rangefinder Kit. That lens was ~$450 in 1991. I have zoom lenses, but not an AF wide~short telephoto. Last Summer vacation- such a lens would have been handy. It's...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon D700 Image Appreciation Thread

    Almost 12 years old but still a fantastic full-frame camera. Post your D700 images, old & new, here. Taken this morning, 15min after waking up & opening the door for the cat, I looked up, saw the corona around the moon and started hunting for a camera to take the pic. Settled on the D700, found...

    Nikon Showcase New to me AF 28/2.8

    So due to some generosity that I was blessed with, I have a Nikkor AF 28/2.8. Now, my cheapie D3200 can't AF that lens but OTOH, there is so little focus needed on a 28mm lens even as a 40mm equiv on a DX sensor that I'm not much bothered by that. I mounted it on a drive home this morning and...

    Nikon Showcase Nikkor-T 10.5cm F4 in F-Mount

    This is an odd lens, one of the earliest in F-Mount and one of the last for S-mount. This is a "preset" lens, and is one of the few 3-element lenses made by Nikon. This lens is Nikon's version of the "Mountain Elmar", a small/compact longer focal length lens. This lens is very light, weighing in...

    Nikon Showcase Nikon Pancake-NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 AI-s

    I don't think there's a showcase for this lens which is surprising given how many copies of it were made and the fact that a large portion of members here would have either owned or currently own one. A truly wonderful lens in terms of operation and rendering.
