I've sold some gear that I don't use anymore to fund this lens. I used black thread to suspend it for the shot.

I don't have the picture marked for public display so you won't see it there.

Ah, well, then you probably shouldn't post it in a public forum.

It is intended for display here. I just haven't decided if I'm going to take the shot over again before posting it on my Flickr stream. I think the background can be improved.

I like the concept and execution!

It almost looks like you know what you are doing!! I think I would have the floor lined with pillows just in case the string broke.

None of the gear is that amazing.

My favourite bits are actually the trunk it's posed on, and the cool old bulb flash (which I did find a stash of un-used flashbulbs the other week.........)

The Canon P is a beautiful rangefinder. So clean and simple. And the Skopar is one of my favorite looking lenses. Nice combo there.
Thanks mate. And I was lucky enough to get one that worked well right out of the box (despite it having been a gamble on a sparsely written eBay listing) so no potentially costly CLA needed. And it included the Canon 50/1.8 lens.

I really appreciate you providing the setup shot too. So now, not only is it a great concept and brilliant execution, but it is also educational! Seemingly a simple thing for the casual observer until you know what it took.
