Was wondering if anyone would catch that reference. You win!
Thanks, but now I can’t get the song out of my head!

There's a "Weird Al Yankovic" project idea here with goat pictures to boot!

Using Lomography 100 film and the newly acquired Soligor 500mm f8 mirror lens.

First the setup. Since it is a T mount lens, I did try it on a as many of my bodies as I have of each. The LX's large and bright viewfinder selection - as well as screens, can be advantageous to use on such a dark lens especially if the light isn't ideal.




This next one is a combination of three shots to show out of focus in front and back of the target.




Pentax shooter!

We had a light dusting of snow here last week, which made a pleasant change from the relentless rain we've been having so far this winter. These are with my K1000 with the Pentax M24-35mm and Velvia 100F. That M24-35mm is a seriously under-rated lens.
Wonderful!

I could not find any goats among my film shots but what about sheep?

Both shots taken in 1995 in Morocco with the Z-1P; the first comes from the only film I ever did with its panorama function (Fuji Reala), the second is Ektachrome Elite 100.

I also couldn't find any goats in my library but I shot some deer last year in November





Both with MX and M 50/1.7


And from the same Roll with three of my most favourite Lenses (first the K 135/2.5 then the Revuenon 55/1.2 and Tokina 17/3.5):

and that lovely Tokina 17/3.5

Love the striking light in that second image!

The friendly sort as you had to be pretty close to make those shots!

It is a very nice camera to use, big bright viewfinder, clear pop-up frame lines, automatic paralax correction. The rangefinder spot is a little bit harder to focus than the Retina IIa I have though.

I finally took it out for some shooting after cleaning the rangefinder/viewfinder and finding a Schneider Xenon 50/1.9 and a Curtagon 35/2.8 for it to add to the 135/4 Tele Xenar and 50/2.8 Xenar it came with.

Did you post a photo of the IIIs?

Have you tried the trick where you put a little dot of tape one front center of the finder window?
Apparently it can make the patch easier to see.

Yes I posted photos of it in the gearporn thread but only with the two Xenars. Only got the other two lenses recently.

I didn't try the tape trick yet but I will give it a try one of these days.
