    Prophetic Sign

    Mike, In a perfect world I'd have had a 400mm lens to affect that. Sure I can crop like this, but the image goes to pot trying to enlarge that much.

    Water Rescue Training

    This is the original you had trouble with. It is a low S/N which is known to have the very stiff zoom ring as well. I bought it used around 2004 or so. I've never tried the newer designs.

    Water Rescue Training

    Yeah it works well enough and the zoom factor makes me keep it instead of trading it in for a prime. Jeremy

    Photography Systems

    I use a Leica M system because RF's are great for street work when you don't want to carry a bulky SLR. I have a 21, 35, 50 and 90mm lenses for that I also have a Leica R system which is similar to Nikon film bodies with lenses that have a different rendering and operating style. For this system I have primes in the range of 21 to 800mm. I also have a Minolta, and Pentax cameras and a few lenses, but I never use them. I was given both systems. JCA

    Sigma TC's Suck!

    A bit OT, but my Sigma 1.4x TC mates quite well with my Sigma 120-300 f2.8 lens. I am quite happy with it. Of course the zoom is supposed to be better than the 300 f2.8 prime. JCA
  14. You should be able to use a Kenko tube which has contacts, although I don't know if it has all of them to transmit the signals. I have the 85 PC-D and it vignettes pretty heavily with extension, especially if you start shifting. The issue you raise is one of the reasons I opted for the D lens instead of the E lens. JCA

    AF-S VR Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED

    Optically, this is the best lens in my Nikon arsenal. Sharp, fast focusing, well built, and the best BOKEH of any Nikkor I have. I also have a Leica APO 180mm f2 Summicron and it has a far better tripod foot. The Nikkor's just isn't as solid. Fortunately I am either hand holding or using a monopod for the work I do with it, so this isn't as big a flaw for me as others. Despite the foot, its a 5-star lens and worth the money if you are willing to lug it around with you. JCA
