Another reason why I use the 7440+W/A for wide shots - juggling the 6490 & Xenar when you want to take a longer zoom shot you're almost certain to drop one or the other - the little Retinar W/A is easy to unscrew, can sit in my pocket or even be replaced by the Retinar X2 if I want more Tele - in fact it can all go into two jacket pockets!

TheXenar's quality is great, butit's just too difficult to handle "in the field"...

The next one I zoomed in while the wide angle lens was still mounted. With cropping it is still a nice pic but the normal lens would have been better as I would not need cropping. Also notice the quality is still there even when you zoom in. I'm not so sure the cheaper ones will do the same.

That's why I've got to learn to carry my kit bag with me everywhere. Shades of my old K1000.

Somehow I keep referring people to this thread... The Lensbaby

Apparently you can pay a lot of money for a lens that creates that blurred-edges look... or you can do a bit of zooming with your Kodak wide-angle lens. An interesting effect, which can be of use from time to time.

Cheers,
