Updated v2 edit..first post just looked too plastic/ was bugging me (added more contrast)

Testing another lens that I have bought, for my Nikon f5 film camera - The Nikkor 180mm f2.8 AFD. I was surprised how compact it was for a DSLR telephoto prime as I have the Nikkor 200mm f2 and it is huge!

I had a shoot organised with Bex (Rebecca) and enjoyed the lens so much I shot the whole shoot with my old Nikon D800 DSLR.

This photo looks super edited to my eyes. I'm not sure if it is due the the Nikon CMOS sensor look vs. my eyes being used to Leica but the lens is very impressive and promising for shooting film with.

(I did enjoy the ease of use of the D800, a good viewfinder, fast autofocus, good useable high ISO but I don't like how the images render when blown up on a big screen. That's why I eventually moved from Nikon first to a Contax 645 film camera which helped start my film craze, then a Voigtlander Bessa R3A film camera and then a digital Leica M9 which has a similar form to the R3A. I use Nikon film cameras now but i'm just not a fan of the digital Nikon's for my personal work).

Long lenses like a 180mm are quite a novelty to a Leica shooter! Loved it

Another photo with Bex - Testing the Nikkor 180mm f2.8 AFD yesterday

Long lenses like a 180mm are quite a novelty to a Leica shooter! Loved it. I look forward to using it on the Nikon F5 :)

Bex (Rebecca) with the 180mm AFD. I wish I had shot film for this now but the lens still looks promising

I usually shoot weddings with Leica cameras (+film cameras) but I normally take my old Nikon D800 as my backup camera. Yesterday's wedding couple didn't care in the slightest what camera I used and wanted digital photos so I decided to try out my new Nikon lens for weddings (I bought for the Nikon F5 for film weddings but as it was digital photos only I used it on the D800). I used to use a Nikkor 200mm f2 lens at weddings so I was interested at how the much smaller and cheaper 180mm lens would do. You don't get the same wow factor as with the f2 lens but it was nice for a change and to have a bit extra reach.
