Chinatown Hangout

That's the last of the B&W shots for now. I have another roll waiting for developing but that will have to wait some more until I get the time to hit Peninsula Plaza again. I have been asked countless times now whether I will arbitrarily "upgrade" to the new D800 or to the latest 85mm F1.4 AFG. I refer back to my B&W film shots on my Nikon FE. If I trade my 85mm F1.4 AFD towards the G, I would lose the ability to switch between digital and film, and that, generally speaking, I do not want to happen. I don't own any "G" lenses for that very reason, so that I can always maintain a degree of backwards compatibility with older Nikon film bodies. As for the D800, I would casually refer to my D700 as a good, reliable friend who never lets me down, you just don't trade in good friends.
