What the Nerds Do / Re: micro-nikkor 200mm f/4 Ai!!!

I wish the 200/4.0 AI Micro was an ED lens.

Me too. if the focal length was 180mm that would give scope for the front element to the slightly oversized (retaining the 52mm filter size) to reduce vignetting, which is rather high with the AI 200/4 micro. A 180/4 IF-ED micro would be very nice. The closest to that is the Cosina-Voigtlander 180/4 APO, which focuses to about 1:4, but this lens is rare and very expensive. It's a little surprising there aren't more lenses in this space, most longer-than-105mm macros have an aperture of f/3.5 or f/2.8, and are much bigger lenses. The good thing about the 200mm micro is how compact it is.

Last night an impression.

Z6, 105mm f/1.4 @f/2.8 so a bit more dof as compared to 'my' previous image.

Yes, the subtle color retains the atmosphere of the scene better to me.  Nice capture anyway!

It is a not-so-secret secret that Photo Ninja installs and runs well under Linux .... if you aren't familiar with this RAW conversion program, you ought to be.

I'm in particular fond of PN's capabilities for handling my UV and IR captures.

RawTherapee is another program that comes in a Linux flavour. Like PN, it digests almost anything RAW-wise.

Aftershot by Corel does well under Linux, cannot remember whether it comes in a native Linux version, but that doesn't mattrer as long as it works. Aftershot hails from the old and beloved 'Bibble', unfortunately after Corel purchased it development has been on and off. Largely the latter if truth is to be told, thus support for the latest cameras is so-so.

I discovered by accident that Monochrome2DNG (which I use for my monochrome NEX-5N) runs perfectly under Linux as well.
