    Picked up another Pentax MX, this time in black, to compliment my silver one. Came with a spotless SMC-M 50/f1.7. Camera was well loved with lots of brass showing and a couple matching dings on the prism, but everything works flawlessly including the meter. New seals and it's ready to go.

    ATTN: B&B Photogs-Fall Shots

    We have no fall scenery where I live. The only trees are in peoples yards. I miss NE Ks. We usually are still wearing shorts at Thanksgiving here too.

    I've been looking at one of those for my RB67. I like the Domke Grippers for my film SLR's and rangefinders.

    Looking for a camera.film rangefinder

    Have you looked here? http://www.fedka.com/Frames/Main_Frame.htm Has a 10 day inspection/return policy. I read good things on RFF about this site in the past.

    Macro lens recommendations

    Obviously this is a little out of the OP's price range, but the late Ronnie Gaubert used to use a 300mm with an extension tube (on a tripod of course) to get very nice close up shots and be able to be quite a distance away. A lot of the macro shots I see of bugs and such are staged indoors...

    Pic of the week!

    Ha! I have NEF's sitting in the computer now for 6+ months. Just finding the time to sit down and do it can be hard.

    You know, I have a 50mm for most of my cameras and they seem to be the last lens I ever reach for (except my 55mm micro, which I use for close up shots). I gravitate to the wide angle lenses for some reason. If I look at the exif info on my digital shots they are almost always at about 18mm...

    Incoming!

    Picked up an old Pentax KM with a K series 55mm/1.8 lens today for $10. Lens has a good coating of dust on the inner element, but no scratches on the outer elements. I think it will most likely only be a problem when shooting into the sun or maybe a bit of contrast loss. Camera works perfect...

    Received my Retina IIc back from Chris Sherlock today. It looked really good on the cosmetic side before I sent it to New Zealand, but the internals match the outside now. The shutter sounds very close at 1 second now and doesn't stick at all. Everything moves very easily including the focus...

    What is your most commonly used pen?

    At work it's my TWSBI 530. The thing just works and I've never had a problem with it. It's super easy to clean as well. At home it's my old Parker Vac I had Danny Fudge restore for me recently.

    I love steel. My Bianchi road bike is an older steel frame/fork and rides like butter.

    Nice Xander! I picked up my very first mountain bike a couple of weeks ago while I was in Austin. It's a old one (2004 Gary Fisher Tassajara), but it's in good shape frame-wise and only the front derailleur needs replacing. It'll be a good bike to learn on the singletrack we have around here.

    Best. Selfie. Ever.

    Very cool. Between that video and watching "The Secret Life of Walter Smitty" last night I'm ready to quit my job.
