Some nice summaries guys. I didnt post any of my favorites from the month a couple days ago when I welcomed the end of the month. So here goes...

I think possibly this one -

And of course, who can resist a bit of Gear photography afer acquiring a nice clean MX. (First roll out for development)

And the arrival of spring was welcome too...
(Even if I forgot my RAW Slot SD Card)

end of month wrap-up for April....

SMC A 50mm f2.8 Macro

Where has this lens been? What an absolute jem of a lens, this go-anywhere, shoot-anything of a 50mm lens....

In this nearly-tiny package, you have the build quality of the SMC A line (ignore the 50/1.7 - think 50/1.4), epic optics, and a true 1:2 macro capability.....

Could it be faster (f2.8)? Probably, but then you'd lose the size; could it be a full 1:1 macro? sure, but at the cost of size again....

No - this is just about perfect.... why don't we hear of it more often?

and the rest of the month:

Single In Challenge. - April '21 | Flickr

looking forward to May!

I’d echo other sentiments: this does seem a great fit for you; some stellar photos this month (not that that’s unusual for you, but still…)

IT will be a while until I replace or repair the FA 77, but my ProMaster Spectra is a very capable walk-around lens, so I am in no hurry, and it will be the SIC lens for May
