I really have to find my 67 M 200 mm f/4 and compare it to the 645 FA 200 mm f/4 on the 645Z. Where the hell did I stash it ... !

Since you are considering 200mm lenses, I would like to insert a word in favor of the Pentax 67 200mm f 4.0, a magnificent lens that is very forgiving of extreme cropping and thus can take the place of 300mm and 400mm glass when required.

Totally true, Ivan. When I first got into 6X7 shooting (1991), my two first lenses were the late-model 55 mm f/4 and the 200 mm f/4 with a 67 body. I really liked this short telephoto lens, on film it was very sharp and contrasty and focused really close. I still have to retrieve it and I will compare it to the 645 FA 200 mm f/4. Only drawback is manual-focusing, sometimes hard to achieve with these slow lenses on the 645Z.

The 67 lineup is full of bargain priced optical treasures, and I am enjoying trying them out on both K-1 and 645Z.

Hi,

Oh, dear. Now there's a problem I don't have. Yet, anyway. Only three bags at this point. But, I did add that third bag after I got the 645D.

This afternoon, I found my 67 M 75 mm f/2.8 AL, my 67 M 165 mm f/2.8 and even a 67 M 135 mm f/4 macro I had no idea I still had (I stopped using it when I bought the M* 100 mm f/4 Macro). But still, no trace of the 67 M 200 mm f/4. Aargh !

Hi,

When you go to look for something else, there that lens will be. Happens to me all the time!

Surprised you could have forgotten the 75/2.8. That lens is a treasure indeed, and quite expensive these days. You must start a program to try it out on the Z!

Ivan,

I was pleasantly surprised with the 645 75 mm f/2.8 performance, both for distant subjects and macrophotography (my blueberries series with the 645 Auto Bellows). I still have to try the 67 M 75 mm f/2.8 on the 645Z (I fear it will blow away my trusted 645 75 mm though). For example, the 67 M* 300 mm f/4 is much better than any 645 prime 300 mm offerings. Still haven't found my 67 M 200 mm f/4 (I may simply buy another one on eBay, they sell for peanuts these days. I found one in Japan for 103,50 $ and free shipping).

Regards

Definitely in the extravagantly sculpted zone of your series of images. Thanks.

Did you check what the P67 75 2.8 is selling for nowadays? I got one for $1,100 because it had a little dent in the filter thread, but otherwise they are $1,800 on up to $2,500. But I love this lens, especially its really short MFD.

I paid 1000$ for it when I bought it brand new from B&H many years ago. Used it sells for twice the price nowadays. Crazy !

North Head is a key point in Sydney - sitting at the entrance to the Harbour, it adjoins the famous suburb of Manly, it houses "Q Station" (which had been the quarantine facility when shiploads of people arrived with then-untreatable diseases) and also is home to a large area of bushland, rich in wildife such as the endangered bandicoot.

Following last summer's terrible bush fires, the drive for proper "hazard reduction burning" before the next hot season is strong. During such an operation on North Head, the fires got out of control and ran away from the fire service. Thankfully, things were salvaged before anything terrible could happen.

In these shots, you see the fire, with the buildings of Q Station in front of it.
