When I was a pipeline welder's helper fifty years ago, my welder sent me to the welder foreman to get a pipe stretcher and an air suspension hook. The welder foreman sent me back to my welder with the message that he was supposed to have all that stuff on his welding rig/truck, and if he wasn't set up with the right tools to work, he might as well just quit and drag up (pipeliner's term for leaving a job). The welder cussed a blue streak up and down and made up some message for me to take back to the welder foreman, but by then I was catching on.

NIB/NOS Bottom Half Case untouched, in OEM packaging with plastic and paper instructions, for the recently acquired ME-F. $10, shipped. Like the old days of eBay. Where on earth has this been for forty years?

I think the Cosina has an affinity for blue - the webbing is blue, but a bit more muted than that shot....

An interesting little packaged which was delivered by Canada Post on a Sunday. I burned out the fungus (none internal) on the lens with hydrogen peroxide. However, I may need to use some ammonia to eliminate the "shadow" of the fungus on the glass.

How about an "I almost acquired....."?

On the website for the local camera dealers they have a "pre-owned" section, and looking it through it last week I spotted they had listed a Tamron 35080 f2.8 SP macro lens which said it suited Pentax. These were one of the Adaptall lenses that you purchased the camera mount seperately to the lens so you could use it over different bodies.

Anyway I went into the shop at crack of sparrows yesterday, the nice bloke behind the counter got the lens and although it looked in good condition it just would not fit on the K100D body I'd taken with me. It seemed to have trouble aligning and then it would only turn a short distance before stopping, so it would not lock into place.

It's a shame as it was a bargain price and would have been a great manual lens for what I was planning to do, but I wan't going to risk it.
