I was out at Jandakot Airport, well just up the road under the approach flight path.

Sorry I didn't get a chance to get out top your camera shop the other day, will try later this week.

And Yes I went to Anzac Day march and got rained on....damn..:O
Well at least I know the DL can take some water..:?

This was taken on Sunday evening at 7.45pm at Matilda Bay looking towards the Narrows Bridge, 300mm, f4, 15 sec, ISO200, resized only. (errno_gmm, just before it rained)

Thanks Tom, that great praise coming from you, the king of fast moving tack sharp shots of birds in flight....You guru you.

I sneaked up on this one and lay in wait for minutes until the boat was unsuspecting and then I managed to get the shot off before it ...well ..sat there....:lol:

Crashman, just traded a Samyang 80-200mm f4 macro-zoom K-mount lens for a Chinon 200mm f3.5 screw mount. A resourceful (if misguided) previous ownerhad crazy-glued the adaptor to the lens, removed the retaining sprint from the adaptor and machined a notch in the lens barrel to fit the camera's lens lock. Luckily it worked perfectly, I seem to have infinity focus and it mounts and dismounts like any other K-mount lens. It seems very sharp wide open, I borrowed the lens a few years ago when I took the moose cow and calf picture I posted in Kjell's roe thread. Now it is mine.

Don't laugh I have thought about something similar for my Tamron M42 80-250mm f3.5. Just hadn't worked out how I would do it.

As long as the mod works and you are happy thats all that counts. I can honestly say I have never heard of Chinon. I must search the web for the brand and have a look.

Had a big job on today at work and grabbed a car that had a Pentax K1000 35mm camera instead of a digital, boy was I get some funny looks from the media and pro photographers as I wandered around with my 50mm f2 lens manually focussing and winding on the next shot and changing film...hahaha.

I must admit I had to think myself as it has been a while since I used film.

Looking forward to seeing some of your shots from your new lens Ira.

btw, Craig, I popped into your camera store the other day, but it was your day off, I showed your off sider my lens and told him to tell you what he thought of it. I hope he has passed it on that I came in.

Crashman,

Chinon was similar to Cosina, they built some 35mm cameras with their name but many cameras for other brands such as GAF, Argus and others. They also built 8mm movie equipment. I think they faded from 35mm in the late 1980s since they did not have a modern AF SLR. They built M42 mount equipment and K-mount stuff that was quite good. Check out: http://www.butkus.org/chinon/ for more info.
