Finally got around to shooting a roll.

And one digital for contrast.

Crooow:This music would work better with women in bikinis shaking all over the place. I guess that's true of any music really.

    Nice. So what camera/lens did you get?

    That's a nice looking Prius.

    Pentax 645. The original manual focus version. The lens is a 75mm-f2.8. Field of view like a 50mm on a 35mm (digital full frame). Magnification of a 75mm and the same ability for a shallow depth of field (if I want it) as that focal length on a 35mm. That was the reason for getting it. When I need or want it, maintain a fairly shallow DoF while including a fair amount of area in the frame.

    I also have the 200mm-f4, but I have not used it.

    Thanks. It uses gas, but in economy mode, the children get out a push.

    I bet that could pull a whole trailer loaded with dumb sea cucumbers and their books.

    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    Recently I bought an old 35mm Minolta film SLR with an excellent 50mm Minolta multicoated f1.4 lens. When used with an adaptor on my Lumix G7 M4/3 body it becomes a 100mm equivalent f1.4 manual focus lens. It's a very sharp lens with great great bokeh for portraits and other applications.

    Cool. I use old lenses on Lumix GF2, my canon dSLRs and my Olympus 4/3. It is great way to get and use fast lenses for little money. An old Olympus 100mm f2.8 cost me about $50 plus shipping. The modern equivalent for my Canon cameras would run $600 to $900.
