5 ED AF-D Optical performance competitive with the Nikkor 17-35 ¦2.8 AF-S at a third of the price and weight. This was a fixture in Galen's camera bag. 20mm ¦4 AI This was among Galen's favorite lenses for landscape photography. It was only made for a brief period in the 1970s, and was therefore manual focus, but it is extr emely compact, lightweight, and optically the best 20mm Nikon has produced. 24mm ¦2.8 AI-S and AF-D Lighter and with less flare than the 24mm ¦2.0. Galen once said that a high percen tage of his best images could have probably been made with only a 24mm and an 80 -200 zoom. 28mm ¦3.5 PC Manual focus perspective control lens for critical architectural work. 28±80mm ¦3.5±5.6 AF-D 7 oz., $100, and sharp! 35mm ¦1.4 AI-S Galen mostly used this fast wide-angle for aerial photography with his Nikon F4 which offers Matrix metering with manual focus lenses. In a bouncing, vibrating airplane, a fast shutter speed permitted by the fast f/1.4 aperture is critical for sharpness, and focus is almost always at infinity, so auto focus is unnecess ary. 35mm ¦2.0 AF-D Extremely compact, light and sharp general purpose wide angle. 35±70mm ¦2.8 AF-D For spontaneous handheld work with moving subjects. 55mm ¦2.8 Micro AI-S Does double duty as a close-up and normal lens. 70±300 ¦4±5.6 ED AF-D This lens delivers a wide telephoto zoom range with publishable optical quality (especially stopped down a couple of ¦stops) in a very lightweight and compact pac kage. It represents a good value. 80±200mm ¦2.8 AF-D Fast and sharp. Prior to the release of the 80-400VR lens, this was a permanent fixture in Galen's general purpose kit, and he continued to use it frequently for landscapes, action, cultural portraits, and wildlife. 80±200mm ¦4.5±5.6 AF-D 11-ounce, compact tele-zoom offering publishable image quality. 80-400mm ¦4.5-5.6 ED AF-D VR This lens would be fantastic even without its vibration reduction feature that a llows handheld shooting at shutter speeds 2-3 stops slower than normal. Optical performance is excellent throughout its huge range of focal lengths, and it is f airly lightweight for a big zoom. This lens frequently displaced the 80±200mm ¦2.8 i n Galen's bag as his general purpose telephoto zoom.

4 AI-S Galen mostly used this fast short telephoto for aerial work for the same reasons as the 35mm ¦1. and Circular Polarizer filters.4.

Custom grads: 5-stop hard edge. SB-26 and SB-24 Rosco Gel Filters Used to warm the harsh daylight color temperature of the flash output to more cl osely match the ªmagic hourº light in which he typically photographed. the various designs of the N ikkor 300 ¦2. without the autofocus of course. 12" White reflector.8 or 600mm ¦4 lenses. and for its relative portability compare d to the heavier 400mm ¦2. Tripods Galen most recently used the Gitzo 1228 () and 1348 carbon fiber models with Arc a-Swiss and Kirk ballheads and Arca-style quick release plates by Kirk and Reall y Right Stuff. Filters Galen Rowell Singh-Ray Graduated Neutral Density Filters (fit Cokin P series holder). He also used the tiny Gitzo 001 on trail runs. Galen prized this s uper-telephoto for its optical quality. 500mm ¦4.8 ED AF Used primarily for wildlife and action photography. 3-stop soft. 81A. Remote Flash Accessories Nikon SC-17 off-camera TTL flash cord (). 300mm ¦2. . 2-stop hard ed ge.
