A set of 3 panoramas with 6 vertical shots taken within 20 minutes yesterday. All with the 28-45mm.
Excuse my being a little off-topic, but are you using a nodal slide with the 28-45? I tried to find the nodal point for mine on the RRS MPR-CL II and the slide didn't seem quite long enough to get it back far enough to eliminate parallax error. This would save me from considering the 35mm if I could get it working with the zoom.

No I wasn't using a nodal rail/slide. I have an arcatech rail that is also not quite long enough I think. I don't tend to shoot panos with this lens unless the foreground falls away in front. If you find a rial that does the job let us know.

Ok, time to share some of my photos with the 645Z. Truth to tell, I'm still not convinced I have any business even owning it but it's an interesting challenge and there are some things I have in mind to shoot with it. I've been trying to keep things pretty simple, focusing on basic technique and trying toi get a feel for the camera's special capabilities and requirements. With regard to the latter, I've come to appreciate the need for a much more deliberate approach than the "run & gun" style I adopted with with crop sensor bodies. In part, this is simply due to the sheer size & weight of the body and lenses but, also, in view of the need for tripod support in many of the situations for which MF is particularly suited. FWIW, I carry the body and two lenses (DFA 55/2.8 & A120/4 Macro) in a thinkTank sling bag.) I also have an A*300/4 but haven't quite figured out what I want to use it for (and I need to figure that out before I schlep it about.)

Anyway, here goes:

A 120/4 Macro









DFA 55/2.8







Commentary welcomed

I'm toying with the idea of popping up to Scotland from where I am in the lakes. It being May bank holiday means scarce availability in hotels and also weather forecast isn't all that good. Heavy rain forecast for early Sunday Monday and Tuesday.

In other news, my 28-45 has finally arrived from its long holiday.

It was very windy and the results could have been better but a series from snowing to sunshine seemed fun. This is taken looking back west from the devils staircase pathway Glencoe-Kinlochleven.

Snowing



Snow receding



Sun out again

The first one catches the eye with the bright spot in the mountains. Nice.

I had one for a few days, didn't keep it, but I did learn that you can put a telescope tube ring around it for a pseudo tripod mount. It was not a perfect solution but acceptable considering it needs one. I like the mannequins the most from what you posted previously!

Yeah, I think that exemplifies some of the special qualities MF makes possible.

645Z and FA45-85 at Beijing Auto Show

Hi!

I've been so busy the last couple of months to prepare and move back to Sweden after 4 years in China.
The last day in Beijing I visited the Beijing Auto Show. Here are some cars SOOC.

I've got my Paris 645 negatives back but no idea when I'll have the opportunity to scan any of them...

I've seen a zillion photos of this bridge. Thank you for a new perspective of it, it's the freshest one that I've seen in years. Well done.
