I'm in with the Super-Takumar 2.5/135. I have a trip to Pittsburgh, PA planned for the last week of the month, so that should be fun.

With cold winter upon me, I decided something nice to play with inside might be a good idea, so I'm in with the SMC FA 100mm Macro, close ups here I come, I might even venture outside if there is no rain, just slightly envious of the new WR model .

I need to re-kindle the love for my 645Z.

Cold and wet July begs for the only weather resistant lens medium format I have - the SMC Pentax-DFA 645 1:2.8 55mm AL [IF] SDM AW. Relatively compact and roughly equivalent to the FA43 on full frame, It should be a reasonably easy combination for daily use.

I packed M*300/4, M150/3.5, M85/2, M35/2 and F17-28FE to go on the road with my this months gear K1ii and M50/1.7. I think it should keep me covered. Don't usually carry 300 on travels, but hoping to get some surf shots of my son to family album. Probably leave it in the car or accommodation for most of the trip.

Plane to Paris take off tomorrow morning, so I'll soon start the radio silence, as I'm leaving my computer home and don't like to roam forums on mobile. I'll be travelin Loire valley for the first week and stay on coast near Bordeaux the next week. See you all on 16th.

EDIT: I have 144GB worth memory cards with me. About 1800 shots. Might need to get more

Update: I will not be taking part this month - after some deliberation, Iíll not be taking the camera on holiday so thereíll be a week gap at the least!
Unless this is okay? Itís a fairly substantial break in play.

as long as you have a shot for each day, including the days you'll be on holiday, you can post them late (after you return)...

Hey I would rather see a photo every day you are with your camera and lens combo with a break for when you are not with them than miss out on 3 weeks of fun, join in and also have a holiday, great idea for July

That is true - The issue will be not having the camera/lens combo with me while Iím away, so wonít be taking pictures during those days.
Iíll have to stock up on snaps before I go!

Count me in.

A hike to a series 7 waterfalls is planned for this first day of July, which of 3 lenses will I use? The one that allows me to take them all in, I suppose.

It came down to the F50/1.7, M 40/2.8 and Vivitar 28-210. The F 50 won the day this month.
