Nice shot. I found the SMC 200/4 to be an absolutely stunning lens, unfortunately I just didn't get on with that FL (same reason I sold my FA77).

The more I use the 200, the more it has become my favorite 67 lens
It' definitely not an all purpose focal length though.

I was out and about Sunday with my new-to-me Program Plus and ME Winder II and 50mm Pentax-A F2.0 lens, shooting a roll of expired Kodak Gold 200. The kids, dog, and camera all aligned to capture this nice image. Scanned negative with Nikon Coolscan 5000.

That's a nice image, but it's very, very blue...

Me and my local gang of camera hooligans went for a trip to Chinatown in Toronto to do a bit of street photography. I upped the challenge by shooting a bit of film. Below, a street portrait, and a grab shot with ME Super, Super Tak 50/1.4 and Portra 400, scanned at home on the V500

The snow is in shadow, the sky that day was clear and blue, and the film long-expired. Still, I plan to slip this negative into the enlarger and see what I can come up with for a print. It may drive me mad trying to color correct it.

Send me a 4000dpi raw scan without clipped highlights or shadows and I'll get the colours right for you!

Nah, I just won't post 'em here. The scan looks fine to me.

These were shot with a Yashica GTN rangefinder. I can't say it's a camera that provides a nice shooting experience - the controls are clunky and it's bigger and heavier than some 35mm SLRs. It has only A mode. I doubt I'll use it again, but I'm glad I tried a rangefinder as it's confirmed I'm an SLR man.

Try a manual rangefinder, they are a delight to use. They are quiet and gentle; no clanging mirror shake. They allow high speed flash as well. The Yashica Lynx' are fine examples, although the one with a 1.4 lens is admittedly a brute even if it has an outstanding lens. Obviously you have missed the pleasure of a quality Retina as well it seems. Besides, they are simpler to understand than the overloaded modern DSLR.

Try a change of subjects. It also helps to frame "loose". I have found that I shoot differently with my rangefinder cameras than with the SLRs.
