  • I bought a used 28 2.8 ais a couple of years ago and use it my D800 and D700. I love it especially for closeup and near closeup. Great color and definition and it is nicely compact. Cerumen makes ...
  • I use a Sidekick with RRS 55 ballhead on a 3541 Gitzo mostly for a spotting scope but also for my 300 2.8 VR when portability is key. Both  are workable because neither is particularly heavy ...
  • I own both lenses (the 180 is the AIS ED however) and I like them both on my D700 and D800. They are sharp enough for me and produce pictures with good contrast, color and smooth out of focus ...
  • I had only the 85 1.4D and then bought a good second hand 135 DC 2D and to my surprise, I prefer the 135 which in no way diminishes the character of the 85. Both great lenses but the 135 is a ...

  • Thanks Leonard. I knew about the G lenses and the autofocus issues. I saw the use of the PK-13 as strictly macro but the appeal of using my 180 2.8 AIS and my other old lenses with the PK-13 has ...
  • To: T O Shooter Thanks for your reply. I thought that was what 1:1 meant but just having you put it in words allowed me to see the benefit of it. Also am glad all the lenses I mentioned will work. ...
  • Created discussion thread PK-13 Auto Extension Ring
    I bought the PK-13 from KEH yesterday to use with my 55 3.5 pre AI that has been AI'ed. I love the lens and was curious what effect the extension ring would have on it. It was pretty cheap ($29 ...
