BUT, take a look at the HP w2207 & HP w2407 widescreen monitors. I would not trade my HP w2207 for a new of the old 19" trinitron crt like I had though it was the best of any at the time.

I did not think I would ever like the 'glossy' faced monitors but now after 6 months I never pay attention to that...... luvit.

Hi G,

These days, thereseems to be so much pixel peepinggoing on and demand for cameras with more megapixels. The E-1/Zeiss combination of yours really produces some great images and is a reminder what can be done with a good camera and lens in the right hands.

Great candid shots of a pretty young girl...Oh, and the tree is nice too.:-)

great shots. can I come in with a newbie question?

zeiss zf, is that a zeiss with a nikon mount? do you use it with an e1? is there an adapter for that? etc, etc, etc?

thanks.

edit: sorry I posted that before researching it on the web. seems like you can meter with an adapter, right? I didn't think that was possible. I guess AF is still not as easy when there's no "split-circle" in the middle to help you get it straight, but still should be fun being able to use those old beauties in aperture priority

sure kezs,


yep - yep - yep. im amanual lens nut & use mostly old 35mm lenses and the current zeiss zf 50 & 85. but if you dont have any experiance in this area, i wouldnt advise investing much unless you have a e1 or e3. the viewfinders in the other oly's arent designed/calibrated/sized for manual focus.

you can do it maybe kinda, but its not much fun


edit: yes, i really enjoy using the old glass. i probably have 40 or so primes between a 21mm rokkor & a leica 700mm setup. and a few classics that hold up great on digital. makes the process much more interesting for me.

so i can go from this:





to this:



and these are fun
