Yes sir it is, a delightful lady compared to this one:

DA*200 from last weekend. By the way, it's a more than 100% crop of the original shot. I'd have to go back and look to see exactly how much but the image clarity held up really well IMO.

lens repair question - open for suggestions, comments, etc:

I bought a beat-up SMC A 35-70 lens that has had the filter ring chewed/chipped/detonated off - I am thinking of attaching a step up ring so I can attach a hood and the lens will hold a lens cap...

any suggestions on an epoxy for the lens-to-ring attachment?


this is going to be a bodge of a job, so I'm not looking for rocket-science here.... will good old JB Weld to the trick or something else?

detonated off
I hate when that happens

All seriousness aside, I'm sure JB Weld would do the trick, and might even be overkill. I would think any good epoxy (i.e. Gorilla Snot, etc) would suffice. Maybe pm @dcshooter for suggestions.

One of my primes is down for the count. My Vivitar (Cosina) 19/3.5 decided to lock up yesterday. Aperture ring (it has the A setting) is very rough to adjust, and the focus ring will not turn at all. Like something is stripped inside. Crap - after I finally figured that lens out, too....
