Autumn on Nikon Nikkor 105mm 1: 1.8 and Nikon D40

Traditionally, I make an autumn selection on Nikon D40. In 2020 it was autumn selection on Nikon D40 and Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1: 1.8G SWM Aspherical, and in 2021 it was autumn selection on Nikon D40 and various modifications of Helios-81 50/2.


Nikon D40 + Nikon Nikkor 105mm 1: 1.8. increase.

Unfortunately my camera Nikon D40 broke during the creation of this collection (But this is the best camera in the world!). The camera lived a little more than 250.000 frames (without a single repair, screen). I was lucky that I managed to more or less accumulate the desired material.

    Nikon D40 is my first digital camera. I really liked how Nikon conveys the blue of the sky in autumn and especially in contrast with the yellow leaves.
    I see that this photo gallery is mostly in warm colors, which further emphasizes the tone of this autumn)

  • B. R. P.

    Gorgeous lens. Amazing photo. Thank you.

  • Alexander Rifeev

    Nikons always convey the color of the sky and clouds, as well as fresh snow very well, professional photographers use them to capture nature, general views when shooting various events, and Canons are good when shooting faces and interiors inside buildings, so real professionals very often use Nikons and Canons at the same time, leaving for the amateur public the opportunity to argue to the point of shit - which is better: Nikon or Canon :-))))

    • B. R. P.

      Lovers are different. There are also some nearby.

  • Dmitry Kostin

    Thank you!
    Nice to see.
    As always wonderful photos.

  • Misha

    It's like an oil painting. I sawed a dandelion on my Nikon 105mm 1: 2.5. I also shoot on the d40, but the picture is not so soft.

    • Rodion

      Do you have the old “Zonnar” (pre AI) or the new “double Gauss”?

      • Misha

        A newer version. And dandelion helps a lot with focusing. I hold down the shutter and turn the sharpness ring. When it hits, the shutter is released.

  • Yuriy Molchanov

    I look at the pictures, I remember a song from my childhood ... but for some reason, kindness wins in the world ... Arkady, thanks for the mood!

  • SashOK

    Oh, and the pictures are cool - just fire !!!
    It seems to me, Arkady, that after your popularization (for how many years now) Nikon D40 - this camera will never be cheap in the secondary market.

    • Rodion

      This is not a half-popularization of the old camera, this is a popularization of common sense and the ability to shoot on anything.

  • Ivan

    The photos are excellent, but ... Why 24MP? There are six in the original. Is it to attract young people? So marketers still “rule” their brains, and therefore young amateurs with their latest (in terms of the most modern) iPhones sincerely do not understand how it is possible to take better pictures on “oldies” like D40 than on a XXX megapixel iPhone? Yes, even using some “ancient glass” ... And when viewing pictures, even on a miserable antediluvian office monitor with a resolution of 1366 × 768, the difference is obvious. And even with pixel-by-pixel viewing, it’s generally quiet horror from the phone ...
