All hand-held, on the Nikon Df. This lens was introduced in the mid 90s, this one was bought for a Nikon D1.

This lens is sharp, and as the other Micro-Nikkors: highly corrected.

I broke down and upgraded from LR4 to LR6. Adobe really pushes the "Cloud" hard, was not easy to find, buy, and install LR6. But now I can process my DF's NEF files without running them through my Fortran program to "hack" ONE Byte that LR4 needed to be changed...

 

More with the Micro-Nikkor-Zoom 70~180, big name on a pretty big lens!

The Sun was playing cat and mouse with the clouds today, so the Zoom came in handy.

If you run across one of these lenses at a good price, grab it. It is uncommon. I'll get the 200/4 AF-Micro-Nikkor out tomorrow if the Sun cooperates.

Nice images...  and I know what you mean about Adobe. Even though I subscribe to CC, I seriously considered installing LR 6 rather than the CC version which really only adds the ability to work with cloud based images on your Android or IOS device.
