Not sure if it counts, but the Sigma 35

Mamiya RZ67 65mm and 90mm lenses. I paid a good price for the 65mm, but too much for the 90mm, a little of which I get back by not paying shipping twice, and a little by buying a very nice copy. Still, I could have bought the 90mm for quite a bit less.

Carsten and James- glad I could contribute to your chuckles for the day.

Ben- when did Siggys stop counting? Given their rise in popularity, I'm surprised we don't have a Sigma lens thread like we have for other brands.

Carsten- I've done that. Convenience is the scourge of savings accounts everywhere. But, if they make you want to use them, then they were worth every pfennig (or whatever the Euro-coin is called).

Today I found this ZM C Biogon 21/4.5 on the boards and picked it up for the GXR. I also found a used wired remote for the GXR at B&H that will ship on Wednesday apparently. The tiny pano kit is coming together nicely.

Mine has very minimal creeping, just a few mm's.

I picked up a Meyer-Optik G÷rlitz Orestor 2.8/135 last week. Itching to give the bokeh monster a go on my 50D :-)

Konica Hexanon 135/3.2 (only 1m mfd) and Hexanon 40/1.8 (number 100 in my stable )

Biogon 35/2 is a very decent lens,but it has a bad luck being in between 28/2.8 and 45/2,so I use it quite rare.

@ TrainerKen, that's a beautiful piece of glass. Not a bad-looking camera, etiher : )

Should "pull" some sharp images with that setup

Received my Contax Zeiss Sonnar 2,8/85 yesterday.
Perfect small telephoto lens for a light walkaround kit.

Winter seems to be peaking with five feet of snow in Troms°:

Hexanon 200/3.5 EE and 50/1.7 AE (another,newer).

Hexanons are truly extraordinary.Sharp,neutral colours,very good contrast and much low than average CA.100/2.8,50/1.4,50/1.7,135/3.2 and 40/1.8 Hexanons are excellent.All can match their Zeiss C/Y equivalents in the sharpness department and win them by lower overall level of CA.24/2.8 AE,35/2.8 6-lenser EE and 28/3.5 7-lenser EE are very good as well.

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.
