it is really very good under the right circumstances.
I'd be interested in what you mean by "the right circumstances."

Another from the garden in which I am building a house. 645Z and 55mm 2.8. I often forget to use this lens, but it is really very good under the right circumstances.

You better build a very beautiful house... 😃 because that's a very beautiful place.

Not to large I hope.

A few weeks ago, I bought the new 15 stop Lee Super Stopper. Used it for the first time today.

Taken about 2pm on a pretty clear day in Seoul.

16 minutes (!) at f/8 ISO 100

Well, for me as an owner of the 28-45mm I can often achieve more punchy results with that lens cropped to 55mm equivalent FOV. This is especially true if the light is muted as I feel the coatings on the 28-45mm are superior. Also the DOF available at a given aperture is larger from the 28-45mm at 45mm. This makes it my go to for shots with foreground detail if not thinking of trying to stack/blend images. So in this context the 'right circumstances' for the 55mm in my mind's eye are strong contrast and saturation in the real scene and the majority of the frame in mid distance to infinity. I also like it as a walk around lens due to it's weight. But I don't really do much shooting off the tripod and don't mind the heft of the 28-45 if I have my f-stop tilopa BC with me.

I haven't reviewed images on the last few pages (yet), comments / likes to follow.

Something different from me - I shall probably inundate this thread with such images in coming days...a weekend photo shoot and tuition at a local aviation museum complete with flying 'warbird' aircraft.









Flickr doesn't do justice to the resolution of the last one. The control-column string 'cording' filaments are clearly visible on the original full-size image.

Spent some time in Oregon last weekend, shot on my Yashicamat with expired Portra 160NC.




I want to take the Yashica out more now, time to order some fresh film I think... PS it was nice to walk in to a store and have my 120(!) film developed while I waited! Thanks to the Shutterbugs in Portland!

I really like the Yashicamat for medium range shots. I'd like to try a set of macro lenses and see how it'll do with close ups.
