Hmmm, if you join, I should consider joining as well. It had been more than two years ago, and I hardly took any pictures last year.
Please do! Your daughter must be just about a grown-up by now

I think I'll try my Pentax FA 35-105mm macro this month, pairing it with my K-5.

This morning I had to choose between two lenses (well, in the end): the Helios-44M and the MIR-1V, both Soviet products.
I chose the Helios, but I was pleasantly surprised - again - by the capacities of the MIR. Here the comparison between both, and both wide open...

I feel a little rusty using a manual lens.....
It took me some minutes to figure out why there was a manual/auto switch

I hope to participate with my K-S2, Lensbaby Sol 45 and sometimes with the addition of a Raynox 150 or Raynox 250. I have captured very few images with the Sol 45. Best wishes to all.

Ollala, I will try to pick up the game once more.
Long time not being active though.

My lens will be the Pentax 67 M* 300mm F4 ED.
I still do not know if I will stick to my Pentax K-1 or if I take it someday on the Pentax 6x7 (yes its FILM), the Pentax 645nII (that is film too) and the Q7.
So if I grow bored of the K-1 I will use something else and if I go analog, it might take some more days before the film is developed (home dev and home scan)

I'm looking forward for this month

Congrats. Me too :-) with the wagtail - nice surprise first thing in the morning.

---------- Post added 3rd Feb 2019 at 12:10 ----------

Over on Flickr for my Day 2 image Sandy commented with:
"I'm intrigued by the use of the teleconverter. Surprised that it works with AF micro-adjustment."

If anyone else is interested in this I just sort of tried it out.
My test shot after fitting the AF Adapter didn't seem very sharp so I did a quick experiment with text on my laptop screen.
With a A lens fitted you still get the "Apply All" setting in AF Fine Adjustment (C4 25 on the K-1).
Setting it to +5 (after experimentation) certainly made a difference to my set up.

The main thing I have to remember now is to set it back to "Apply One" when I next fit an AF lens.
