    Thanks herc. This lense is for a film camera. This was part of the first set of pic's I took with this lense. As for the high ISO it might have been set there from another time. For the high shutter speed the wind was blowing pretty good. For some reason I was using manual focus. On somethings this lense has trouble focusing ao AF.
    There was more of the handrail but the pic' was crooked and when I straightened and cropped it I lost most of it.

    I need to see if I can get better images fron this lense on landscapes. I have gotten better pic's of my cats with it.

    I think you would have been better off metering for the brighter part of the scene and then lift the resulting foreground shadows in post. It's much eaiser to lift shadows than recover highlights. Or, you could have bracketed the exposure and combined them in post. In difficult lighting situations, it's a good habit to always bracket. It costs you nothing and can sometimes make the shot.

    But, something else is not right about the shot. It looks like it was shot with a bad lens...

    My better half hanging around on the couch.

    ISO 3200 out of a D40 (!!) with the 18-55mm II kit lens. Converted in Adobe Camera RAW, noise reduction and minor adjustments in Elements 6.

    Thanks for the input JTL. I not sure where I metered at, probaly about the center of the shot. I used multi patern metering.

    I just done a test on all my lenses. I used a calander on the wall. The 28-200 uses the AF in the camera body, and has problems focusing. The best image from this lense was on manual focus. The IQ on this lense is not great.
    My best lense is my 55-200 AF-S VR lense. Focus so sharp you can see the pixels in the print. My 50mm 1.8 is in about the same boat as the 28-200 but the IQ is some what better. My VR 18-55 looks to be about the same IQ as the 50 1.8. My Quantaray has almost the same IQ as the 55-200 but the black colored print has a purple tint to it.

    Swpars we set around our house the same way. We refuse to pay the high heating bills, so we wear coats and sweaters in the house. It got down to 29 last night.

    29 in Tennessee?! I thought the South was supposed to be warm...

    Washington is damp, chilly, and nasty this time of year. Maybe the cold temperature cooled down the sensor enough that evening to give me a clean ISO 3200.

    That's what I thought when I moved here. I lived in Everett about a year in the mid '80s. I lived in North Idaho before I moved here. I was looking forward to milder winters. Guess What!!! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. It gets cold here in the Winter but not much snow. Right now it's in the mid 40s but it will be in the 20's again tonight.

    VR. Yes there is alot to remember. I try to take more than one shot of everything when I can. I try different settings and meter of different things.
    I've been out in the yard with the 28-200 and the 55-200. The 28-200 does better in good light but still not as good as the 55-200. When I take pic's of my cats the 28-200 does great. Must have something to do with their fur.

    Any recomendations for a good Landscape lense?
