What I shot
A foggy day in the neighborhood.
A foggy day in the neighborhood. D700 and Sigma 50mm f/1.4
Industar 50mm f/3.5
A cheap Russian lens that I bought in Ukraine for almost nothing. Fully manual and fun to play with. Not sharp in any way and with a massive light falloff in the corners on full frame in particular. The Russians of course called this lens "The Eagle Eye"
Nikon 50mm f/2.8 pancake
Another of Nikon's pancake lenses - a bright normal lens. Built to last, all manual, no electronics, but a lovely little lens.
I always loved the look of the ultra-compact pancake lenses. Now I own two.
The honest 35mm
For some reason some photographers seem to think that a 35mm lens is about as boring and bland as a lens can get. I beg to differ.
Sigma 30mm f/1.4
A great normal lens for DX bodies. Bright, sharp and well built.
Nikon 35mm f/1.8
One of the least expensive lenses in Nikon's selection, and one of the best - at least for the money. Any DX shooter should own one.
Nikon 55mm f/3.5 macro
An old macro back from the 70's. Not able to keep up with the modern lenses, but very nice in build quality - and it was a gift, so I'm not complaining - and it works on my Nikon belllows thanks to being an AI lens with an aperture ring.
Nikon 45mm f/2.8 pancake
A cute little lens, which is extremely compact and has excellent build and image quality. A manual lens, but works like a charm on all my DX bodies.
Nikon 40mm f/2.8 macro
A great little macro lens, cheap and sharp, but with a little too close working distance for my taste.
