On it way in the mail, Argus C3 screw mount to micro 4/3 adapter and an adapter to mount Mamiya 645 lenses on Nikon F. I have the standard set of Argus C3 focal lengths (35, 50, 100, 135) and they are so tiny all of them could fit in a jacket pocket. So I think they'd be fun on micro 4/3.

I don't have any really nice Nikkor lenses that fit my full-frame Nikon, so I'm looking forward to being able to adapt the Mamiya lenses. Maybe what I've read on the Internet is true, medium format lenses aren't as sharp as 35mm lenses, but I'd like to see. I can't imagine that a professional medium format lens is less good than the Nikon kit and cheap third-party lenses I own.

In my possession, m42 to micro 4/3. Playing with an Industar 50-2 attached today. I also intend to use macro bellows and m39 to m42 adapter to use a nice Fujinon 135mm enlarging lens for both standard and macro shots.

A 58mm-77mm step-up ring and a 77mm standard metal lens hood for my 35mm-70mm lens (17A).

A 'taster pot' of 'supernova' coloured matt paint. Actually, it's matt black.

Ruddy 'supernova' colour! I wouldn't mind but a 'supernova' is big star exploding. Rather bright and not very matt black at all.

I bought it 'cos even though the lens hood is black, it isn't very 'matt black'. I'm waiting for it to dry.

A short-dated 3x box of Lomog. colour 400 film (£6) and a short-dated 3x box of Lomog. Lady grey 400 mono film (£8). I was informed that even though they're at a reduced price, they are on a 'buy one get 2nd half price' deal, so I only paid £11.

Just nabbed a CV 35 / 2.5 from Aperture that was boxed and as new with hood for £290. Such a little beast of a lens, and on my R3A I've found the 1:1 viewfinder / 35 focal length surprisingly natural. First test roll showed some beautiful rendering on Fomapan 400 at 2.5 so couldn't be happier.

Might get hung out to dry for this one... a mint Fuji F31fd from ebay for around £15 inc. postage. Mainly for the 6.3mp CCD sensor. It only gives 9x7' prints at 300dpi but they have more character than CMOS. Useable IQ from 100-800 for low light and a pin sharp lens that equivalents 36 / 2.8. Lives in my back pocket when I'm out and about now.

A 'Tecno' compact camera case. It's very small, just big enough for my Gossen variosix f with dome attached and the 5 deg 'spot' attachment in a separate pocket.

A 'Tecno' gadget bag. Looks like their medium bag but smaller. It's got my Ricoh 500GX, a slotted lens hood, a blower brush, 4 film canisters, 1 green filter and 1 yellow-green filter. It just fits that stuff in so it'd be a bit of a squeeze if I actually get the yellow and the orange filters I'd been thinking about.

Just ordered a Tamrac 'Stratus 6' bag for my nikon stuff. I paid £64.99 for it. I think it'll be a little bit big, but I couldn't find anything as close to what I wanted.

Dear Board,

I just bought a Canon EOS 1DMK3 from a member of one of the message boards I visit and a Sigma 150-600 OS C from B&H.

I was going to be content with the new to me camera, but when I got the email with an additional $ 150.00 off the lens and next day shipping I took the leap.

Watch out birds and wildlife, I'm gunning for you!

Regards,

Tim Murphy

Well, got this for what I think is a steal ($250). I've got the framelines on my RF645 for it so that's nice. Need to shoot a test roll to see how the focus handles.

I convinced a beautiful Canon P to relocate from Japan to the US. Bad timing? Perhaps, but a great purchase. Works perfectly, and now my 35mm Color Skopar has a new place to live.

Loved mine when I had it with a 21/4 Color Skopar.

I have this lens coming to me this week to go on the Canon 7 I have now. A Type-6 Canon 50mm f/1.8 LTM, basically Serenar optics, but with the newer lighter alloy body, and 8 blade aperture (which has the octagon's edges curving inward) instead of the 9 or 10 the other types came in.

Bessa R4M+Skopar 21/4 (870$ for the combo). M6 was a struggle with 28mm lens, so now I am well "wide equipped".

I've just got a hard case for my tamron 17A lens which was designed for a tamron O9A. It fits, although I think I'll have to be careful about the focusing lugs.

The case did stink a bit though. I've sprayed it inside with dettol anti-stink stuff. It's not so bad now.

Within the past three weeks---two Pentax Spotmatics. I haven't developed any film from the two as of yet, but the ergonomics...just the feeling of the Spotmatic in my hands....is enjoyable in itself. If the images are like the cameras, I'll be happy. I don't understand why I never bothered to try a Spotmatic before.

A friend gave me a Canon FTb with a 35mm 3.5 lens. I used this same camera and lens about a year ago and enjoyed the results.

Bought a Tamron adaptall 80-210mm from Goodwill for $8 plus $13 shipping. Unfortunately is has a fungus issue. Very disappointing. After reading some great things about Tamron's Adaptall series of lenses here, I was looking forward to trying one and being able to use it across several platforms.

I bought a Tamrac Stratus 6 bag. It was slightly bigger than I wanted but never mind.

Unfortunately, the side pockets have NO padding and only velcro flaps, I wouldn't have wanted to put anything in them.

The padding in the main body of the bag is thin and the padded dividers are thin and a bit 'short' in places so they wouldn't go arounf my lenses.

So I've sent it back.

Trying to find a decent bag that is in the style of how they practically alll were not many years ago, that's the right size and cost is pain in the 'arris.
