    Yeah 5 months in Stockholm transferred to something a bit more substantial.

    I feel a bit embarrassed as its the full set, including case.
    21mm f2; 28mm f2 ; 35mm f2 (that I just love, love already) ; 50mm f1.4 ; 85mm f1.4

    The only one I feel I have to still have to get is the 100mm f2

    They are all a lot smaller than their Nikon equivalents but feel a lot more polished.

    Next step is ground focusing screen for the D700 or not … ?

    First off, no embarrassment allowed! You have parlayed your 2nd go-round at EA into something good! You did it, my friend. Something to be happy about! And you have a great shipped title on your CV!

    That’s quite a lovely set of lenses to go with a great camera. If you have the cash, I’d get a screen, though. I think you’ll spend maybe $200, and it will be well worth it with that set. At f/1.4, the 50’s DOF is razor-thin, and I can’t imagine how thin the 85 must be.

    Enjoy them.

    I’ve been using the “live view” as even hand held it is quite effective in allowing me to zoom in on the area i want to ensure I have in focus and checking.

    I’ve just ordered a Katzeye for the D700 so hopefully that will help too. (Was $105 for the D700 version)

I bought some new lenses. A set of Zeiss ZF.2 lenses. Here is my first one. I was in Vancouver for a few days on business. Walking from the developer’s office to the hotel I saw these pretty leaves on the ground and on the trees.
