As much as it's irritating to have to wait, I guess it's good news that Kodak is having greater demand than their supply?

I think I'd take the lens over the camera, looks-wise. :p

What's the difference between the 50/1.8 Series E variants?

I'm waiting on a few rolls I ordered from the Film Photography Project. With the development expense, though, the two year shelf life sounds geat.

Is that the current Japanese-market film, or an older emulsion?

Looks like my Tair-11, except that the Tair is 133/2.8, and the Jupiter is 135/4. But it's the same silver barrel design.

@pepperberry farm;, do you know how much difference there is between the 40mm limited and the XS? I assume the packaging is the only real difference.

What Is Up With K1000 Prices?

Yes, the Zinc-Air is a common good alternative, as is a voltage reducer for a silver oxide battery. The biggest problem with alkaline batteries is their discharge curve, not their voltage. Silver, Zinc-Air, and Mercury batteries all have a much more consistent discharge curve than an alkaline battery -- those three have constant voltage, and the voltage basically falls off a cliff when the batteries are done. Alkaline batteries have a more logarithmic discharge curve, so a simple ISO compensation will work, but the meter will become more inaccurate as the battery discharges.


One of the most wonderful things with the Spotmatics is that they had circuitry that could handle the alkaline discharge curve, and still work accurately.

That's my favorite solution as well. as you don't have to constantly replace zinc-air batteries.

Maybe for black and white film, but I'm pretty sure that meter does not have the voltage regulation necessary for accurate metering with an alkaline battery, at least compared to the original mercury battery.

I'd be happy to be proven wrong, but I'm sure an Alkaline battery is going to be off by at least half a stop.

While I do have a fondness for the SRT series Minoltas, they require a workaround for the light meter battery.

The reason is that the images in question are hosted on http, not https. There's a setting in the control panel for it.

It seems really strange for Zenit to be a "premium" brand.

That's what it says, but it was also brand new, and after Vivitar basically stopped making lenses, so I really don't know what the deal is.

My only gripe with it is that I wish it had a shorter minimum focusing distance. I haven't had too much experience with purple fringing from this lens.

The one I have is a "Vivitar Series One". Not sure its really from that series, but it's a 4/4 design, with a 67mm front filter.


I do imagine you are correct about example variance.
