Well, I didn't use the K-7 (it tagged along on accident.) I had four tripods (so I do four cameras worth of astrophotography at once) but only had one clear night the whole time. So that kind of hurts how many good samples I'll have for my article series, and probably pushes the last one or two articles out until next spring.

The 6X7 started, randomly, overlapping frames and not engaging the advance mechanism until halfway through the stroke. But it got progressively worse. So it was taking 10 strokes or more to get the film from loaded to the first frame. Then it was overlapping frames edge-to-edge, but only advancing them halfway. So that's a mess. At least I could limp through the trip by putting the lens cap on and taking a dead frame every other shot to maintain alignment.
I was just teasing about the cameras.
That's too bad about the 67 - I'm sure Eric will sort it for you. I just received my LX back, now purring along like a kitten.

I know. I get teased about them all the time.

I forgot to mention I had a WG-M1 and Sony handycam, too.

Got my 645D today which I was pretty excited about. I love it of course! Feels great in the hand, like my 645 but more refined.
I shot these two in noon hour sun during my lunch break today with the much maligned 200/4 which for landscape seems ok to me. I haven't looked that closely at every detail but nothing is jumping out at me as a defect. Seems reasonably sharp, but maybe other lenses will seem sharper.




I'm going to try and duck out of work early tonight to catch the evening light and sunset if I can.

These look great to me Matt.
I love my 645D even if I thought I would never again buy a big DSLR. Now when I pick up a fairly recently-acquired P67 the 645D seems light, and it's quite portable with many of the smaller primes.
I sold my A 200f4 and bought a P67 200f4 instead, however I didn't have the 645 lens long enough to evaluate its performance, simply that the 67 lens could be used on either camera.

Oh man, my LBA is kicking in again now that I have a "new" system. Just bought a 2x tele converter from KEH. So affordable ($69) I figured It would be nice to have for additional FL options.
I also like the look of that FA 400/5.6. That with the TC would be nice for moonrise/set shots.

Anyone need a kidney? I'm O+.

Hey, Matt---

I know how you feel about that kidney....seriously though, although the 645Z was waaaaaaaaaay out of my price range, I haven't regretted getting it for even a nanosecond. And with the price of the used lenses, I'm really about at the same level as I would have been if I had outfitted a top of the line FF system similarly. Oh, no---wait. Actually, by my calculations it's been significantly cheaper.

These ended up being more subtle than I was hoping for, sometimes the skies don't cooperate with me the way I wish they would...

There are usually at least two ways down. You just encouraged the express route!
