Not really alt but just got myself the new "Zeiss" Sony FE 55 1.8, first autofocus lens for ages I've bought myself. Compact little beast, love it already.

Greggf heavily influenced my purchase of the ELPRO close up lens. Thank you Greggf as well as thanks to Kokusai for identifying the correct version to get (the ELPRO 3)!

Also picked up the Voigtlander VME Close Up Lens Adapter for M to NEX/E mount. Going to tinker around with both the ELPRO and the VME this weekend.

That is a brilliant price for such a nice lens. Is there another?

Well, sort of, but probably not in the sense you're referring to. It has a bigger brother, the Nikkor-Q 200 mm f/4, which also cost me 30$ in equal condition (close to mint, very well taken care of). Who am I to separate two siblings, who have lived together for almost 50 years? Both sold by a woman in her sixties, they were her father's old gear. They have probably been stowed away for decades until she put them up for sale.

In "camera years", the lens is probably younger than the camera. It certainly behaves that way.

It takes almost as long to get an image out of the 1Ds, as from a Polaroid.

P.S. in zones A, B and C, it's sharper than my Oly 21/3.5. Zone D, Oly takes it.

After a year spent with Mamiya RZ67 ULD 50mm, I ordered RZ67 APO 500mm.RZ67 APO and ULD lenses are offered at very pleased prices, I think this is a big chance for someone who knows.

Zeiss Luminar 63mm f/4.5 Now I need to find out how to adapt it to my Contax Bellows and the bellows to my D800 or A7, without breaking the bank. The adapters I have seen so far are in the 150 Euro ballpark!

I assume you mean 85/1.8, in which case I congratulate you on a great lens. Very sharp from f/2.8 and very good build quality.

Is the Luminar an RMS thread? If so then RMS > M39/M42 etc adapters are cheap and readily available, as are Contax or Nikon M39/M42 adapters for the bellows.

Why is it going to cost 150 Euro ? I've had (several) adapters custom made for much less.

I don't know. I guess I need to go through M42, I was hoping for a single adapter, rather than a stack.

I could also go M39. I am not sure what is better. I would like to have the option of either F-mount or Contax mount.

Btw, yes, RMS.
