Love the 3D feel you are able to achieve here Mike.
thanks. I got lucky. Lens is the 67 M*300, fwiw.

That one answers the question I had about the first--which was whether the moon was lighting the under side of the tank. .

The wood shape in the foreground makes that more than just a lovely scene.
It's a case of putting the light pollution to work for the scene. The downtown city lights are lighting the bottom as you surmised. I had to de-yellow them a bit because they are so strong.

Thx. I used an ND 9-stop to allow the colors to dwell on the water by smoothing out the ripples, and also create a backdrop for the pilings. A faster shutter makes the water too busy and the delicate colors are lost.

The saga with Pentax continues. My DA 28-45 still isn't back though Johnsons have loaned me a copy. Just popped in to see them on my way to the Lake District and despite being dispatched 6 weeks ago, the lens still hasn't reached France. Johnson's have chased and apparently it's still 10 days away. Talk about slow boat, I think it is being hand delivered on foot! Johnsons have kindly given me a loan copy of the Z while they repair the cable release socket and look into other issues and clean the sensor. Good service from Johnsons but Pentax Ricoh really need to have a look at themselves. Very poor.

This is the thing that just floors me, the transit delay. That lens has got to be coming on a plane, and that's less than 24 hours. So, is it a customs delay? I just don't get it.... The tavel times today aren't what justify(!) this kind of delay.

If it was customs, somebody would know by now. They were told 10 days a day or two ago, after 6 weeks. Really quite shocking. I have asked the question of Ricoh's social media team but got no answer. Sure, they have given me a 50% discount on the repair and Johnsons have given me loan items, but the service is really poor on the delivery front. I've sent things to Korea from UK for about 10 that got to their destination within 5 days. There's no justification for this delay.

Awesome photos Gavin!...I see you got a reasonable price for your A35 on ev**Bay, though not as much as one would like.

ishimitis - those transit times you are being fed are complete lies IMHO.

Had I the funds to buy a Z I would be thinking twice due to the varied poor support anecdotes being posted on this and other threads. Contrast that with my Leica M9 getting a completely new sensor free of charge from Leica; something they have probably done for hundreds of owners to maintain their product reputation, albeit for a camera that had sensor cover-glass longevity and 'corrosion' (their term) issues.

FYI- Here's the cross section for it. Two Low dispersion elements-- Note that it is not a Telephoto design but a more modern type, lacking the negative group at the rear.

That's interesting.
Does anyone know what the differences would be between the M* and a SMC 67 300/4?
