  1. Nikon F6 with Zeiss Otus 85mm f1.4 lens. This is my only APO lens. p319.jpg

  2. And what a gorgeous lens that is! I imagine it is quite a workout to carry around?

  3. Wonderful combination there, James! This Yashicamat 124 G was included with a few TLR cameras I received a week ago. I don't like the 124G as much as it's predecessor, the Yashicamat 12, which had fewer plastic components and hadn't been "glamourised" with the black finish; they are basically the same camera with the 124G accepting both 220 and 120 film as opposed to the 12's 120 only, not a huge advantage in this day and age! I'm running a film but I'll probably move the camera on.

  4. I'm always amazed at the high regard this model brings. Like your Yashicamat 12, I have a similar vintage Yashica Mat 124. It too has the Yashinon, meter and 120/220 but is not a " G "designated model and doesn't have the plasticy pieces etc . Because of this.. it will not bring the return this miodel will bring.

  5. This week (and next) it is “The Beast”, a Contarex that was my late father’s pride. I plan to use the Planar, Distagon 35mm and Sonnar 135mm. Loaded with last roll from FP4+ bulk.

  6. Shot some Rollei Retro 80s with my go-to Leica IIIc over the weekend,
    And loaded up an Olympus PEN-F, but didn't get around to shooting with it.

    Next weekend I'll have more opportunities; another Photo Walk with a few fellow film photographers and a World War 1 living history event.
    Will need to load up a period correct camera for that last one.

  7. Finished all of the rolls that were on the trot so started one of HP5 in the Hasselblad 500C/M - 100 f3.5 Planar pairing.

  8. This Tokina RMC 35-135mm f/3.5-4.5 one-touch zoom arrived with a camera I recently bought. Some of the early Tokinas I've come across have proved to be good performers and initial tests on a Sony digital suggest that this could be one of them. Well built and nicely finished, the lens zooms to a 1:4 image ratio without additional buttons or catches, giving it a very usable close-focus potential. I've fitted it to the old favourite Minolta SRT-202 and when the rain stops I'll run a film.
