Nice Chris!

IMHO, we should not put people on a pedestal. Clearly, equipment is not created equal, so, yes, by all means, compose in any manner you want and we appreciate your sharing!

Thanks, Dave. Wish I could get out and use them as much as they deserve.

I'm jealous of that 28mm f1.4 lens you've got on the left F6 Chris.

Best,

Can anyone tell me whether or not there is some kind of delay (sluggishness?) with the light meter of the F6 when going from one type of lighting to a different one?

Thank you

I have never experienced any kind of delay with the F6 light meter. It works very fast.

Cheers, Jan

Indeed! As I posted in the other F6 thread, with my son using my F6 at the present perhaps its time I purchased another one. With my son a budding and enthusiastic film photographer, there is room for two F6s in the family!

It's a real keeper. I have come to appreciate the 28mm focal length relatively late in life, and to still have some ability to limit DoF with an f1.4 28mm is just icing on the cake. It and the 85mm are my most used Nikon lenses.

Some days ago I've seen a picture of an F6 bought this year with a serial number of 0035595.
That is the highest number I have personally seen so far by myself.

I continue to enjoy my F6 .

I got my F6 new from B&H about a month ago S/N 0035636. Best film camera I've ever owned!

I quickly checked eBay for used prices and the first F6 i See is coupled with a 17-55/2.8 Nikkor. That is a DX lens designed for a 1.5x crop...
