Leica 180/3.4 APO (pre-E60) in user condition cosmetically, but excellent optically. Scheduled to show up this coming Friday.

I'll be purchasing a Leitax R to Nikon F mount conversion with CPU chip for use on my D800 (and via F-m43 adapter a Panasonic GX-7 when that gets released and I can get my hands on one).

Even though I love my little CV APO-Lanthar 180/4, I may someday have to get the 180/3.4.

Meanwhile, I've now got a Summicron-M 28/2 on the way. I already have the latest Elmarit-M 28, so I'll be seeing if the extra stop (and, depending on who you ask, little extra "something") that the Cron has is worth the price and size/weight difference.

If it is, the Elmarit will go, and probably one of my 35mm lenses as well.

I just picked up a Tamron Adaptall 2 180mm f2.5 Slight filter ring damage but glass and everything else looks great. Looks very sharp. I am looking for a hood or ideas for do it yourself hood. Aslo looking to get the filter ring repaired if possible. I have a good shop in Madison called BDC Camera for repair.
Pictured here on my E-PL5 but probably best used on my 5D or 60D and tripod.
Any one know how much weight the E-PL5 mount can take?

^^^ That's one you just hold by the lens and use the camera for stabilization. Speaking of which...

I will soon be in possession of a Canon FD 20-35/3.5L, which should do a good job of overwhelming the NEX-7.

Just picked up a Nikon 105 2.5 AI to use on a 6D. It joins a Helios 44-2, Spiratone 135 2.8, Tak 200 2.8, and soon a Sigma 300 2.8 EX DG. The only Canon lenses I kept were the 180 3.5 and 85 1.8. I sold off all of my other Canon kit and switched to this setup and an happier with the results. I may try out the Nikon 200 2 to replace the Tak though.

The 180/3.4 showed up yesterday and needed some TLC, it got the TLC, but now I have to wait for the Leitax mount to show up and a new spring for the ball detent. Hopefully in a week I'll have both and can throw it on the D800 to see how it goes.

And today Canon FD 50/1.4 chrome nose.They say that like 55/1.2 chrome nose it has SSC coating already but no red SSC engraving yet.And it feels even more solid/heavier than later SSC.We'll see.

This came today. Original plan is to keep the lens and sell the body after I use it enough for review, but if it grows on me, I may end up keeping the body too. We'll see.

It's terrible. I find myself looking for new lenses for my EOS-M, even though I don't like it.
