645Z with 28-45mm @ 28mm.

For anyone who cares about these things, this depicts two locomotives designed by William Adams for the London & South Western Railway - visiting 02 Class no. W24 'Calbourne' dating from 1891 and resident 0415 class no. 30583 dating from 1885.

Pentax 67ii 90mm 2.8 versions

I think the final version of the 90mm came out in 1989, where as the 67ii was 1998...

Optically the L/S is different...

I can speak very highly of the final version of this lens, which I have used successfully on 6x7ii, 645D and 645Z.

The older L/S version is not, in my experience, as good optically. I can't speak for the 6x7 version, as I have never used it... If, we mentioned above, it is optically identical to the final version (including the coatings), then that would make a clean example a great value purchase.

If in doubt, you can't go wrong with the final version.

The work is perfectly conceived and executed. What I love about it is the way it builds and creeps up on you. Any one picture alone doesn't quite have the effect. It can seem intriguing but nondescript. However, the body of work as a whole creates an aesthetic, a mood, an expectation, a wondering that is quite magical. It's cumulative, it shapes the viewer as we view.

It very much your own and, despite being quite unlike what I do, I love it. Bravo, sir!

Funny you should say that, sir. But it actually wasn't the new 90mm that I used! I was out on a family trip and had to keep equipment size down to a minimum. So this was shot with my old 6x7 90mm f2.8 lens, which is much smaller than the new 645 DFA 90mm f2.8. Still pretty sharp though, huh? :-)

Bit different from my usual material - a return to a former obsession (steam locomotives!).

If they are doing what Dervla and Ronald were doing, I might just let them be in the shot.

And Castlerigg is an intriguing place. Even without Dervla Kirwan and Ronald Pickup there... ;-)

Having been offline for a few days, just wanted to thank everyone who kindly offered feedback on the two versions of the Tower Bridge night shot from The Shard. Truly appreciated and I agree with the consensus...

Warmest,
Ed

Lovely stuff, MattB! Delightful conditions, beautifully photographed...

---------- Post added 01-18-19 at 07:35 PM ----------

I'm interested in everyone's views on this...

The first shot is one that I posted a few days ago of the scene from the Shard. The second one includes a sky that occurred earlier the same evening, composited onto the same scene.

Which do you prefer...?

I like to keep things slightly balanced (and it's been too cloudy lately for star trails). ;-)

Do such adaptors exist, and are they capable of operating the apertures / autofocus of the lenses...? (Aperture more important to me than autofocus)

Thank you, sir. Glad you like 'em.

I used to own the 67 75mm f4.5 (before getting the f2.8 AL around 2004) and both are very good. I would say that the f2.8 is a little sharper and MUCH easier to focus precisely; the brighter viewfinder it provides is worth a lot. If you zoom in on digi, you can see the difference in resolution. There is perhaps a little more geometric distortion on the f2.8 version, but it's not huge - or obvious with my type of subject matter. The digital rendering is rather film-like - and there is a little purple fringing in specular highlights (which cleans up nicely). IMO both are superior to the 645 75mm options...

As for more chances, I am back home in London and back at work - so I got what I got (some more uploads will follow soon).

Despite its being a family (i.e. non-photography orientated) trip, I was able to take a few images during a visit to Switzerland.
