Hi Matt - the Arsat is made for the 645 or via a converter? Thks, Ian

Oops, I had it as a 35 but it is really a 30mm fisheye. I corrected my post above.

I bought mine on eBay with a 645 mount on it. From what I read the mounts can be changed but they were also produced specifically for Pentax 645 at some point. This mount looks to be a pretty integral part of the lens so I'm thinking it was one of the ones produced for 645.
I bought a lens that looked just like this last year that was a Zeiss Distagon 30/3.5 with a leaf shutter in it (for Hasselblad so I adapted it). It was $900 but still cheaper than our newer 645 UWA options but unfortunately my copy had problems and I returned it.
I had read about the Arsat here and decided to set up an eBay alert for one. Eventually a 645 one came up (for $100 more than stated in that review, but still pretty cheap) and I grabbed it. Totally worth it!

That's a really fantastic shot and I love it! Did you focus stack?

no, because i was pretty wide, 35mm, i went f/13 and got most in reasonable focus.

There is another shot with the 90mm i'll share later where I used focus stacking though

The cherry blossom season in DC is gorgeous. Lots of people know this and it can be tough to get shots you want without loads of people around or in the way.

so true. Saturday morning was a shoulder to shoulder land grab, everyone trying to get their own little share of the scene. I was the first person in place and just stayed put and occasionally shooed a lingering selfie shooter out of my frame, lol.


Here's another from my trip:

Well like I said it's a great shot!

I've started playing with Affinnity Photo as a potential Photoshop replacement and it has a nice focus stacking feature I have been checking out lately. It seems to work well and that alone is probably worth the price!

I'm guessing you're home by now, but the next time you're in town, you have to get into the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico. It's incredible. The flags that flew over Iwo Jima are there. Aircraft suspended from the ceiling, all sorts of awesome stuff.
