Ramkumar, the 400/3.5 is one lens I really would like to try. Nice cat-portrait with the former newspaper-lens (must be cool to have gear with an interesting history - just think about all the events that have been covered with it).

Thank you.. I was told that it was used to cover a lot of events and has seen a lot of countries., one of its user being Patrick Farrell, Pulitzer winning photographer.

Rafael..your collection has me mesmerized just counting the lenses and cameras..shows the love you have for old glass indeed. And they are by no means cheap..each one is exotic in its own way with the way you have cherished them..
On a lighter note, wonder whether you have a security system in place to protect them

No amount of paint on this building is going to hide the cracks in it. Nice shot.

Thanks guys. I suspect that the stars on the face of the building are used to steady the structure?

Ray, the "stars" are connected to steel rods that run through the building and connect to more stars on the other side. This system was used years ago to help hold the building together.

Tony - My 55 1.2SC is in the air as per the tracking number. I like the blue glass and you've given me some ideas to practice on!

Chuong - I really like the 300mm shot peaceful and calm, perfect framing.

Andy - Cairnes is a favorite, perfect lighting, framing, reflection it has everything.

Ramkumar - Nice 400 3.5. My 180 2.8ED once belonged to the San Jose Mercury News and it's a beater that has great glass.

Jay - The bottle brush looks as crisp almost 3D

Rafael - I am amazed at the collection you made for yourself. It deserves a fine cabinet with clear glass!

Gregg - "Plus columns" are highly overrated as in you can't take it with you!

Ray - I like your building, it reminded me of one from last week taken on the one day it didn't rain. The painters just finished and I processed the roof to the exact red.

Amazing the similarity between parts of the world ! We get the same / similar poisonous blue centipedes here too. Up to 30cm long.

Good to see more funghi, here's some more from in the garden. The rate of growth is amazing, I swear if you stood and looked at them for a few minutes you would see them growing.

No, no, no Ken, only way to store is Pelican cases, cabinets allow dust and humidity in.

I have this dream every so often, where I go into an old storefront full of every type and model of Nikkors and cameras. I'm like a kid in a candy store, picking up each item and playing with it.

I must have been dreaming about Rafael's house. Just kidding.

Incredible collection, Rafael.

Great work everyone. The images from Andy, Tony, Rafael, Roberto, and Chuong stand out for me. Lots of activity the past day. Good to see!

Leighton, do you still have power?

Very overcast here today but we had a visit from a cat who climbed the huge plum tree then calmly came down to wander around the small yard at the back.

Very much like the "Cat who Walks By Himself" from Kipling's Just So stories, he studiously ignored me and my efforts to get s decent picture. One of those times you would prefer the ability to auto focus!.
