Today's haul

Won this recently at local online auction - arrived today:

Pentax 645 (not "N") with Pentax shoulder strap and front cap
complete with:
- Pentax 645 angle finder
- smc Pentax-A 645 75mm F2.8 w/Pentax SMC 58mm UV-filter and Pentax RH-B 58 mm rubber hood
- smc Pentax-A 645 150mm F3.5 w/Pentax SMC 58mm UV-filter (w/built-in sliding hood)
- smc Pentax-A 645 45mm F2.8 w/Pentax SMC 67mm UV-filter and Pentax RH-B 70 mm rubber hood
- Two inserts for 120 film with Pentax containers

Had to clean the battery compartment (residue from a leaking battery), but otherwise all of it was in good working order - ran a film through it this afternoon.

The set "lacks" one rear lens cap, one front lens cap 58 mm and one front cap 67 mm, but that is OK, as the price was very reasonable.

Welcome to the curious world of medium format film photography.

That's about 2/3's of my original set up with my 645. I've added more since then but that set up will take some nice images. Well done.

Thanks. I have some 645 gear already: the 645N with the A 75mm F2.8, A 80-160 F4.5 and the FA 200 F4.0 and a couple of AF280T flashes, so this set comes in handy. I find the A 80-160 zoom good, but also quite large and heavy. I prefer primes.

A question for the site mods really. Are they aware that when someone goes onto the Pentaxforums site without registering, an advert for Argoscameras appears within the title. For instance it appears within the title of the opening post of this title. I know this because I had logged out and wanted to check on something so clicked back onto the site without logging in.

It seems that as long as you log in the advert disappears. Just a pity that the company, in this case Argoscameras appear to be able to "piggyback" on an interest in photography without payment or does Argoscameras pay a fee to Pentaxforums?

The add I see when not logged in (I check certain categories via Vienna, an RSS reader), is not Argos but Manfrotto. Which suggests it's all part of the website.

All the same, nice set.
