It's all your fault. Yes, all of you on this forum.

There I was, mindlessly browsing the interweb when I cam across the ragefinder forum. "Hmm, I used to have an Oly 35RD...wonder whether anyone is still using them....ooooh!"

I used to have one a few years back - it never failed to impress me despite my lack of impressive subject matter. Extremely sharp lens, buttery bokeh, what more could anyone ask for.

Here's one of my favourite high key shots...love the dreamy qualities that lens gives:



So, looks like you lot will be responsible for a few s leaving my wallet in the near future!


Cheers,
lA

That is one lovely baby photo

While you're at it, why not "upgrade" to the 35 SP ?
They cost about the same nowadays on the 'bay

Nooooooooooooooooooooo........

I'm still trying to figure out why I just bought a Tele-Elmarit lens on eBay, when I don't have a camera to put it on. Perhaps subconsciously I'm trying to build a case for getting an M2!!!

Oh well, it's only money. And marriage.

I think you'll need to buy a Bessa R first and work your way up to the M.

Looking at how low M prices are at the moment, it might be the other way around!
