Thomas, Colin, Randy, Akira, Paco, many thanks for your kind comments.

Colin, yes this is the place you mention. I went there on a course organised by the UK Nikon School, which was excellent. The Trust also organises photography days by prior appointment. Organised photography days are definitely worthwhile, as you have much better access and a lot more flying.

Here are the next two shots in the series after the last one.

Hello all,
I do have an opportunity to buy a topcor 58mm 1.4 lens with exakta/auto topcon mount. Does anyone have experience in mounting such a lens to a nikon z or f ?
If so, which one works and doyou recommend.
Thanks in advance

Lens Talk / Re: nikkor 105mm f/2 DC

I'm currently shooting Nikon Df and Panasonic MFT.

While I do like my Nikkor 105 DC on my DF, I actually like it better on my micro four thirds camera.  While the DC on the front of the smallish Panny camera is a bit front heavy, I can put up with it because of the improved rendering (at least to my eyes) on the Panny camera.

The secret to unleashing the 105 DC's ultimate IQ on a MFT body is to use a NIKON G/F TO BMCC .64X "Metabones Speed Booster" between the lens and the camera.  The resulting image has a shallower DOF, and I believe the image to be sharper too.  I prefer the field of view better too.  This "special" Speed Booster will only work on a MFT camera if shooting with the electronic shutter (because the rear element protrudes so deeply into the camera that it interfers with the mechanical shutter).  I have tried the "Nikon G/F to MFT Metabones Speed Booster", and prefer the IQ I get with the "Nikon G/F to BMCC" version.

I feel there is a special something in the light here in Cádiz.

Great, warm light! Mediterranean light is the best. Great shot also, Paco.

Paco, that photo does more to brighten my morning than the cups of coffee I had.  Thanks for that!
