I hope I can find a student that is looking for a good clean camera to learn on as this one is in nice shape. I put an old battery from my FE in it and it worked fine, without film. No reason to think it won't work with film.

edit 10/11/17 - FG has been moved on via Craig's List.

Tamron 300/F2.8 for Nikon AF-D

Dear Board,

I was told it would work on all Nikon AF cameras and while I only tested it on a D300, an 8008S, and an F4S I can report that it works on all of them.

Now if only it would quit raining so I can go for a walk in the woods?

Regards,

I have the latest SP Adaptall version (manual focus) of the Tamron 300 f2.8 (360B) of your lens. Looks virtually identical. Large, heavy, fantastic internal focusing (focuses with a fingertip) and very sharp.

Dear dtcls,

I hope this works as well for me as it worked for the seller. It's kind of heavy but compared to 150-600 zooms it definitely doesn't feel overly heavy and it feels hand holdable to me.

I'm curious since you say you have the Adaptall version if your lens has the 43mm drop in filter ring? If so, can you recommend a source for skinny 43mm drop in filters? I'd like to get an ND and a polarizer.

Regards,

Tim Murphy

My SP Adaptall does have the 43mm drop in filter (also accepts 112mm up front). I have taken the holder out, but never managed to unscrew the filter from the holder. 43mm filters are readily available at Amazon or eBay.

Not sure a polarizer would fit or work in the drop in slot as a practical matter.

Taking this thing apart is like stripping a gun. Lol.



A much more reliable way to shoot 6x4.5. My Yashica 12's shutter was too sticky.

The problem with any of the Tamron's that have the drawer for the 43mm filters is that they were made to use the very thin filters Tamron sold. Normal filters are too thick and won't go in or get stuck .

I've always wondered if a machine shop could put normal filters in a lathe and turn down the rims to where they'd fit..

Just got from KEH a pristine Nikkor 200mm F4 micro IF D lens which is all it has been reported to be. It is pretty heavy at about 3 lb.
but perfectly hand holdable on my D700 but I couldn't use it on a Giotto monopod, it was too clumsy for me. It works fine on my
tripod though. The great thing is that it is scary sharp and no distortion that I could see. We'll see how it fares but I'm looking forward to using it.

Got the M6 a month ago, the Hadley Pro two weeks ago and the Orion-15 arrived today.

A Leica paired with a Billingham bag is almost a cliché, but what the hey

A Coleman metal cooler!

Dear Board,

My Dad had one of these for about 20 years when I was kid. He eventually gave it to me and I got about 10 years out of it before it fell apart.

By then they weren't making them anymore. I suppose making things that last 30 years is bad for business?

I stopped by the Salvation Army store today hoping to find a cabinet to use for camera storage but I had no luck. As I was getting ready to leave I spied this bad boy.

For $ 3.99 it was a no-brainer. I'll get that money back the first weekend I use it in ice savings!

Kodak Retina 11a

Dear Board,

I bought a Retina 11a from the big auction website. It was advertised as in working order and everything seems to be working as it should. Shutter speeds including the slow ones visibly change and the aperture works properly too.

It came with a bonus Kodak yellow filter and a case that is just about perfect. I was kind of surprised by how much smaller the 11a is compared to the 111c I already own. It's loaded with film and I guess I'll see what happens?

Regards,

Tim Murphy
