    I might save him up for when I choose the M85/2 for a later Single in...

    He and the cat would be the only people in this household willing to have their portraits taken .


    No doubt about the beauty. I think the biggest issue with cattle dogs is all their energy... But if you happen to run out of subject this month you have my approval to post more shots

    Bc's are smart, no doubt. He is my first dog so I was coming up to speed with dog psychology as he grew up. I was behind the eightball for quite some time. They'll quickly train you if you are not careful! And that can cause issues, as I found out. My mutt is meant to be No. 5 in the household pack (the 4 humans are meant to be Nos 1-4), but he has the occasional aspiration to move to No. 3 ahead of the kids. Curiously, once our cat is above ground level, he completely has the dog's respect. An early claw across the nose I think established that. But on the ground, he's fair game to being herded.

    All dog owners are biased towards their pets, but he is a beautiful looking animal IMO.

    Thanks Scott, don't be too glum mate! It was a lens that came as part of an e-bay package some time back, so I thought I'd give it a go! Good luck at Swinburne (?), I did science, fat lodda good that was, but I've had and interesting few years out of it...Maralinga, most uranium mines & prospects around the country and so forth!

    Anyway cobber, happy Easter, stay safe, and catchya in the PF.

    Cheers Paddy

    Thanks mate.

    I will be looking at this lens, but not straight away. Internals may be similar, but there are no 2 screws holding the front on to allow counterclockwise rotation, but under the rubber fossung ring, now removed, there is a single grub screw.

    I'm currently fiddling with an old Super Tak 35mm f/3.5, so I'd like get that up and running first. I was disappointed with the Promura, it's a large heavy lens for it's 28mm range, must have a lot of glass meethinks! Is it worth it...we tinkerers will give it a go anyway!

    Thanks Scott! And wellcome to the challenge old china!

    Cheers Paddy

    Just curious, which side of Melbourne are you from, me out Mt Macedon way! Don't need to be specific mate, just generally!

    Thanks for the kind message Scott. It was my pleasure to share the relatively short journey thus far and hope that it can help inspire others to develop their own niche and style in the enjoyable vocation.
