Exactly! Well put.

Camera bought last autumn in England. Shot taken today in Limburg/Lahn in Hesse, Germany.

Yes, there is a film in the cam, a format 135 "adapted".

Americano, no milk, for a change and an F gets some morning exercise. An early example 6417279 with a none AI 35mmf2.

Yes the counter is on 36, it always is, forever.

I'll agree with all of this with the exception of the Texas BBQ. I grew up in North Carolina and am quite fond of the vinegar based sauce.

And yes it has a rangefinder as well.

I just LOVE to play around with that "vintage" stuff, may it be medium format, 135 or digital...

I found a cheapy (ebay) wide angle screw in 39mm shade that works great on my 21 f4 SA. I don't know if it really does any good, but it keeps my fingers out of the frame

Thanks for the info about the 21/4 hood. I found the same one you suggested on Amazon (last one of Prime eligible stock) so it should be here in a couple of days. We'll see how that works out.

Hey buddy, yeah, that cake is ok (it's the Shanghainesium kind - I am sooooo missing proper German cake already).

Just as I wanted to walk out the door it's raining heavy and I slipped in a quick what's in my bag today, waiting for the rain to let off just a little - forgot the coffee cup but you can imagine ;-)

whats in my bag by Dirk Steffen, on Flickr

… love these Domke pouches I got a few months ago - they really replace to lug around a bag (just wear one on a belt and you have all he lenses with you you ever want).
This one here holds the 85/2 and 35/1.8 Nikkor in individual LowePro pouches.
That SP is sweeeeet and I am having zero urge to drool over M10's these days just because of it!

More coffee, Mocha today served with a Nikon S3 "Olympic" AR1 and W-Nikkor 2.8cm f3.5, the one you need to really concentrate on changing f stops, speed change is easier. Acros 100 today first 100 iso film of the year, and it did cloud in later, taking a big chance with that speed in February.

Beautiful S3 Chris - how do you get along shooting the 2.8cm without external finder on the S3?
I have to try out one of these AR-1 (never have been a softie fan but maybe this helps with the shutter release position of the Nikon bodies and big hands).

Thank you for kind comments, I struck lucky.
The AR-1 looks weird but makes the operation much better IMHO.
On framing, just like exposure where I shoot sunny sixteen, I guess. It is though an educated guess based on what I see in the finder and what I judge I will get on previous rolls. Just when my eye is "in" I change lenses
I am not adverse to cropping, too puritanical that route, especially with a rangefinder.
I have just developed a roll from that combination of a tree, too boring to post, on the daily dog walk that I took to check the framing and I did miss a little on the RHS, the tree must not have been symmetrical!!

I have been after a nice 85mm f1.8 a while, the lens featured in Michelangelo Antonioni's film Blow-Up (1966) wielded by David Hemmings. I found one eventually at a realistic price but the hood is elusive, HN-7. At least it is a screw fit the snap on type prefer to snap off and disappear.
Lovely lens, Nikon though have never made a bad 85mm.
Yes it was raining a little, the F6 isn't babied.
More trivia, the film was 1966 so that would be the H version, single coated coated, mine is about 1970/1 . It has received the Ai kit 38, makes it more versatile. Only problem was the day was a bit grim and I was loaded with Ektar.
