gd tt ur dad is having his rest.. Its quite tiring to wake up so early every weekend to chase the sun especially if you have a super heavy tiring weekday.. So recently I have chosen to sleep at home on Sat..
Nikkon D90 | AF-S NIKKOR 18-105mm 1:35-5.6G | DI866 External Flashlight | AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G
wildcat was explaining the difference to me sometime back. The main difference is the exposure times...
But generally IR photography requires strong sunlight, right? hmmmm, 'polar bear' like me won't enjoy such weather
NNB - was asking earlier in thread and you were highlighted as expert.. can advise on what you think of the Nikkor 105mmDC, Zeiss ZF2.f1.4 100mm, or Lecia R-mount tele lens..
Clem, sorry to change topic by cutting in with this list... hope you get your answer soon!

was very stressed out so went on a last minute shoot...
This was shot yest at ard 3+pm. 1 min exposure.
but to me lehchey leh, lugging another cam jus for tat purpose.. besides its cheaper with filter and also modding a cam for IR norm u will do it with lower end bodies.. if u ard used to pro bodies like D700, its so hard to fall back to like D40 or D70s or D80, if u know wad i mean.
I will go for Zeiss Macro 100mm f/2 ZF anytime anyday..
Becos tat jus me, but mind you, its fully manual, but render wonderful bokeh and color rendition for macro and portrait work (some might find the latter unflattering afterall its a macro lens)
Depend on ur uses and expectations.
I dont need it for macro becos it only render 1:2 reproduction ratio and i find the focal length bit short for macro work (using 200 micro f4/Voltlaigther 125mm)
I dont need it becos its too short for portraiture work outdoor ( i m using 135DCf2)
Leica? No prior experience so cant comment.
Guess for Portrait, the DC should be quite useful.. may I know if the AF works with D700?.. As you said 135mm is a better working distance for outdoor..
I read form website about the good reviews of Zeiss ZF 100mm, there is also 1-2 comments about how difficult it is to manual focus with this lens, but I guess that is the minority.
Lecia has always fascinate me with claims/comments about the colour rendition and bokeh.. guess it will just be a future, future option..
