    Well... I waassss sleeping!
    Along with the FT3 my Uncle gave me, I also received a Nikkor-P 10.5cm f/2.5. He was asking how I liked it as it was always his favorite. You know me, I can't resist with my cats in the window :o

    Glad to see that someone out there still knows what film is. The cat is adorable. Reminds me of my late kitty Georgie basking in the sun.

    Thanks almo :) At least someone thinks he is adorable. All my friends say he has a funny looking face for some reason...LOL

    The old 105's are supposed to be among the best they've ever made - very sharp and really smooth out of focus areas. Sort of a Leica look to it, and Nikon's 28 f1.4 and 85 f1.4. Nice!

    Our cat knows all the sun spots in the house, too.
    Nice shots.

    a_v, seems to be a nice lens so far. Unfortunately this wasn't the best test for bokeh. I love the feel of these old lenses though. You could club someone over the head with them and shoot their picture afterwards...LOL

    Thanks Frog :)

    great shots! almost impossible to replicate those intense blacks and whites you get from film. I like them a lot!

    Thanks Brent :D I'm a little on the fence about the heavy contrast with these. Part of me likes it but, part of me would have liked a touch more detail :o I love it with the 4th shot though. Made for some crazy eyes.

    Wonderful, the 4th shot is my favorite as well - love the eyes. The sharpness is great.

    while as a photograph #3 is a bit too dark in places, I love the expression on the cat's face at that point. "I've tried to ignore that clicking sound, dude, but really, can you give it a rest already?"

    Thanks guys :D

    Opus, these cats are so photographed, they are more than used to the clicking. It's the flash that drives them nuts. He woke up for a little bit and once he saw I wasn't using a flash, he went right back to sleep...LOL
