so is Bruce i believe

we should get one started on rangefinder forum for rangefinders (even though i know it's not an unusual thing for people over there to do - there are a number of Pentax people over there as well. something to do with taking the road less traveled lol)

Fair enough. Not feeling like using my Pentax for this challenge since I only have Pentax zooms - kind of beats the point of using just one lens..

For one lens, it doesn't mean one Prime. I used my 18-55 for November's challenge. And plan on using my Sigma 70-300mm for this one.

Im using the 18-55wr this month but i feel i got more out of it last month with the 28
Primes make you work a little harder i think
At least in my case
After monday im back to primes whether i shoot film or decide to do the the challenge on digital
No choice on primes for my medium format gear anyway as i dont have a zoom
Same on the rf
Could mount a zoom on the pentax film bodies but they seem morr suited to using a prime

Yes the Single in March is what I meant. And Photolady is spot on.
It is and always has been for Pentaxians using Pentax gear.
After all this is Pentax Forums.

Sorry, I don't want to discourage anybody with other makes. But that, I think, is the way that it is.

It's all right - that's why I asked in the first place if I can use a Voigtlander for the contest

I will join the March challenge with either the DA 70 or 21.

My "theme" will be in-camera processing since this new thingamabob of mine can do all sorts of stuff that I need to learn how to take advantage of.

Hope to see many old faces as well as new!

I'm still in doubt which lens to do, the Helios 58 mm or the Pentax M 50 mm f/1.7.
The Helios I only use on the K10, but maybe I should try it again on the K-7.
I'm definitely going to join the challenge, I promise.

Eddie, if you are doing a 21 I will use mine too. Could be fun and I might just learn a few tricks from you in the process :-)

So for SiM, are we marching along as before. No themes or other photo ideas.
I am cool with that.
