  • Replied in Foggy windows
    Boring could be good, sometimes.  I live in Tokyo.  Tons of bars to get trashed at, but smoking facilities are becoming scarcer by the month.
  • Judas, All nice photos.  My favorite is the archaeological one.  Simple yet it speaks.
  • Replied in Foggy windows
    Seedeich, I like the first photo!  There's feeling to it.  Almost makes me want to sit in a cafe at night and have a good smoke.  lol
  • Good to know all is fine again down under.  In general, I believe, any dusty sensor in humid conditions would have problems.  Moisture on an unclean surface would add both density and weight to ...
  • Seedeich, Thanks for the compliment!  I feel the expression on the man's face in the situation I found him in, amidst the rain and smoke, made this a good black & white photo op.
  • JL, Thank you!  I'm happy to know that you liked it.  When the man came up the slope on this rainy night, I thought I had a decent chance of capturing a good moment.  Fortunately, sometimes we get ...
  • Judas, Thanks for welcoming me back!  I appreciate the compliment, as well.  Indeed, if you were standing there on that very hill with your V1, partially soaked but still excited about the ...
  • Andre, I appreciate your kind words.  Honestly, I love this photo, too.  One of the better ones taken this year for sure.  Perhaps one of several reasons one might like this photo is because of our ...
  • Ed, Thanks for looking and commenting!  I didn't think too much about the name behind the umbrella, but you are correct about the poor use of English.  For most small business owners in Japan, it's ...
  • CX Bob, Thank you for the compliment!  It is, indeed, an honor to be somehow associated with Monty.  I like the stranger's expression, too, one that reveals both mild bewilderment, as well as, ...
  • Created photo thread The V1: Smoke & Rain
    Man on Hill at Night Shot with my trusty V1 & 32mm.
  • Japanese summers are some of the most humid, I think.  In the case of eye sensors it's been my experience that when the sensor has some dust on it combined with the moisture from the humidity, the ...
  • Absolutely, it's worth getting.  Get two, in fact.  :-)  It's the single most under-rated piece of glass out there.
  • Parry, Sorry to hear about your troubles.  As for my own experiences with the ft-1, I've never had any trouble with it - a solid piece of gear, really.  Mine has been used about once a week for 3 ...
  • By the way, I just looked through your gear.  Wow!  You should be able to catch anything that moves, even with your eyes closed.  :-)
  • jshen, Thanks a lot!  I enjoyed the pun thoroughly about the "catch." Please do try this combo.  You'll be able to corner, catch, and capture, any subject. The V2 with 18.5mm is the N1 hunter's ...
  • My experience was very positive.  The main reason was because my V1 was still under warranty.  There was a problem with the shutter and it was replaced for free.  It took about a week and the ...
  • Created photo thread Fishmonger in Tokyo
    Ginza is one of the places I frequent due to the Nikon showroom and gallery being in the area.  But if fish is your thing, there are plenty of places that serves fresh fish, too. Fish Under Neon
  • This set up was modified for an expedition to the interior of Antarctica.  lol
  • Indeed, the 32 1.2 IS icing on the cake. In case you haven't thought about this other option, which has been discussed on these boards before: there is the relatively more affordable FT1 35mm f1.8 ...
