Finally got the A35/3.5!!

Yup! I'm a happy camper today. Its my first day back in Tokyo after a 6 month stay in Colorado and when I gave Fujiya Camera a call this morning they had the lens I've been looking for, the 645 A35/3.5! It has a few scratches on the exterior so it was marked down to 27,300 yen ($289) Fortunately the glass looks pretty clean. I traded in my A45/2.8 and a couple other little pieces for a little over $100 and came home with the 35mm for less than $200. Can't wait to take it for a spin tomorrow with the cherry blossoms!

An excellent price on a fine lens! I think you will find you don't miss the 45mm much if at all.

I just got back from shooting cherry blossoms. I did one roll of Velvia 50 with the 35mm and a second roll with the 120mm macro. Can't wait to see the results!
