Serge 07's recent activity

  • Hi, Tim: Thanks for the words of encouragement & glad you enjoyed. :) It is a fine lens with old world craftsmanship. I read the following post a while back that put this particular Nikkor the wish ...
  • I am enjoying this early 70s Nikkor quite a bit. The aluminum scalloped focus ring is a pleasure to use plus it is small and light. It amazes me that lenses of this vintage can be in such minty ...
  • I picked up the S5 Pro well after the X-E1 out of sheer curiosity. I became seriously hooked on its color output from the get go. It is much smoother and way faster operator than the X-E1 and X-E2, ...
  • Great photos everyone! I hope photos from May are okay as I have zero for June. :) A couple with the Nikkor 28/2.8 and 50/2 H C Auto. Cheers, Serge Nikkor H C Auto 50/2 Nikkor 28/2.8 AIs, Fantastic ...
  • No problem using AF lenses or any F mount lens, manual or otherwise. I have used the D40 (exact same mount as the D3XXX & D5xxx) with af-d, Ai-s, Ai and pre Ai Nikkors with zero problems. The ...
  • Still use the D40 which has been a very trusty companion. I have always enjoyed the rich colors the CCD produces & the small size makes it a breeze to take anywhere. The sensor may only be 6MP, ...
  • Hi, I was just standing there fighting for a bit of elbow room among the crowds.The MET's annual Nativity/Christmas tree exhibit (a work of art) attracts a heck of a lot of people specially since ...
  • Replied in Interesting
    Hi, Rol Lei Nut: Adapters may come into play but at least with the Fuji X-E1 and S5 Pro, this happens to be one of my favorite lenses and can't say that I have been at all disappointed. In ...
  • Direct comparisons: 23mm f/1.4 versus 23mm f/2 (X100 S/T), http://www.fujivsfuji.com/x100-s-t-vs-23mm-f1pt4/ 23mm f/2 versus 27mm f/2.8, http://www.fujivsfuji.com/x100-s-t-vs-27mm-f2pt8/
  • Created discussion thread Fuji 18-55 OIS, not too shabby
    Experimenting with the 18-55's OIS to find out how effective it is, when pushed. This photo was taken hand held @ 1/2 sec exposure. I am fairly good at steady holding but there is no way I could ...
  • Replied in Not entirely....
    Size is obviously the reason most folks add a pancake lens to their collection specially with small bodies such as Fuji. This one also happens to be optically excellent. For me there are other ...
  • If it were not for the 27mm, the X-E1 would stay at home far more often. The tiny lens (83 grams) makes the camera very discrete and a package that is a breeze to take anywhere. It is the reason ...
  • Leighton, I agree that MF Nikkors are a great pairing with the Fuji X cams. I have a few Nikkors and find them to be excellent with the X-E1. These lenses do not feel like computers and in my ...
  • Nice work! At those sizes, they look fairly close to my eyes. Photographylife performed a comprehensive test of the Nikko-S Auto 50/1.4 and the reviewer was very complimentary of its bokeh ...
  • Thanks, madecov! The little colorful guy is one of my favorite photo subjects. :) Happy Holidays, Serge
  • The original AF 50/1.8 non-D with the thin hard plastic focus ring which was made in Japan. The latter MIJ versions with the thicker rubber focusing ring, lost the solidity of the original. Build ...
  • Hi, Vic: It is s cute little bugger and quite easy to misplace just like the Fuji 27mm f/2.8. It makes the S5 Pro almost pocketable. :) Speaking of CAs, fortunately I have not had issues with the ...
  • Created discussion thread Fuji X-E1 & a tiny Nikkor
    Nikkor 45mm f/2.8P AIs. This tiny guy (more like a lens cap) is a marvel of engineering with rock solid build, silky smooth focusing and darn near zero distortion. It is a terrific partner to the ...
  • A fellow Fuji X owner posted a few photos with the Meyer-Optik 100mm f/2.8 and I believe the 35mm f/3.5 a few months back. That was the first I had heard of these very interesting lenses. Their ...
  • Hi, Jay: You're welcome.:) I used the D40 with MF lenses almost exclusively for two plus years which like your D90, it is all manual. With practice I did get fairly good at setting the exposure but ...
