-8 with freezing fog, frost, and steam rising from the river.
In other words, a beautiful day!

Nice one, love the detail. I really should use the 645 zoom lenses instead of leaving the 90mm glued to the Z.

That lens in particular is very good IMO. If I'm just shooting what I come across the zooms are nice and versatile without giving up much IQ.

I went back to the same spot for sunset yesterday but I was too late. That is unfortunate becasuse it was another good one but there will be more. Post sunset was nice too but cold!

Thanks! I was disappointed to be late for sunset until I turned around to this view.

Very nice results....I recall shooting the 'bathing apes' in freezing winter in Japan with airborne water droplets from the hot springs they were bathing in, condensing on the cold camera body and lens...some of the most challenging shooting conditions I've ever been in...the things we do to "get the shot!"....

Argh... I've just almost decided to sell the 645D and buy me a Kiev-88 (just for the viewfinder) and you post those pictures with the 120... I am trying to decide to leave digital, mate, don't f*ck my mind with those!

Don't sell a 645D to get a Kiev 88 anything--that leads to madness. The Kiev stuff is what you can buy in addition to having a camera you can actually depend on.

And I say that as the owner of three Kiev 60's (all with prisms), a specially hot-rodded Kiev 88CM (with prism and five backs), a Pentacon Six Tl (yup), and an Exakta 66 Mk. II with an adapted Kiev 60 prism (using the Baierfoto adapter). And a Fed 3 and Fed 5, so that I can be unreliable in two formats. And a Moscow V folder.

Too much to digest, and we risk to de-rail the thread... I'll keep thinking and maybe I'll open a new thread. Thanks, but. I must get rid of lots of stuff, and although I love my 645D, the viewfinders of those Kiev's are huge!

A rescan of an older picture of a scratch model airplane builder I doing for a xmas gift. I kept tilting the front standard until both the airplane and face were in focus.

He built the plane from scratch, not a kit?
