My RZ67 65mm and 90mm lenses arrived, and both are beautiful, which takes a little off the pain of paying more than absolutely necessary (only about 150 each). I also bought a Polaroid back, and surprisingly it came with a little FP100C in it, so tomorrow I will probably make some shots with it. I am toying with the idea of starting (or locating an old) medium format film thread, since I am basically uninterested in 135 format film stuff.

Tamron 70-300 f4-56 VC.

It's very good lens, very sharp, VC works very well but I bought it for walk around long lens that's lighter than my 100-400 but I still always reach for the 100-400 and it's just setting in by bag.

Came across an interesting deal, a medium format zoom for quite cheap, and thought that some would like to play with it since its not expensive.COMPUTAR MEDIUM FORMAT 105-150MM ZOOM LENS $15

Just bought the OM Zuiko 28mm f2 last night. I'll be using that with my NEX-6 and Metabones Speed Booster. I can't wait!

Contax G45/2. It will be converted into Leica M fit for use on my M8 and also on a 5N with M-Nex adapter. The conversion is available as an eBay service.

The brass ring is the cam and it is threaded for adjustment to the camera rangefinder. It's on the buy and sell forum...

cool, is it accurate throughout the range? i would thing the difference between 46mm and 50mm would throw it off a little?

Seller jieying-usa

here's a link to my purchase - http://tinyurl.com/bv52eqm not cheap, but I didn't know that Jim Buchanan did the conversions and I knew that sebboh was not in the market for production!

I've heard about these ones, with the focus ring next to the camera vs. like the one Jim posted a pic of, I think I'd prefer the conversion in Jim's picture.

Here's two lenses I recently picked up. First two images are a Contax Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 MMJ, and the last is a little old Olympus OM 21mm f/3.5, single coated.

In the second photo, the VSonnar is supported by a Hejnar long lens rig that's currently setup for a Mamiya 645 A 200/2.8 APO. Fortunately, it looks like the same setup can serve for both lenses.

I have Leitax mounts on the way for both of these lenses.

I just ordered Mamiya RZ67 50mm ULD for my landscapes, I know it's not a Zeiss but I saw some very good images from it and maybe it's the only WA has ULD, so I decided to jump in.I will DIY the mount for Sigma or maybe for Canon also (FFD = 105mm).The image is borrowed:

You will need to add focusing to it. The Mamiya RB and RZ systems use bellows focusing on the camera.

I got a mechanically ugly m645 80mm f1.9, its been relubed and sadly the aperture is not in that great shape but it was local. Seems perfectly sharp enough though.
