Good, clear tutorials on what to do to an image.

Not trying to be impolite, but grab your sliders.

Every Expert out there has their own work flow and vision. I started years ago following Scott Kelby in Photoshop.

What I found was following his advice, I got many of his results, which was fine, but not what I wanted. So I started by playing until I found my workflow wants.

You know what you like, find your way in less time than watching videos.

Affinity Photo and Photoshop are the players, google them for hundreds of starters

Aperture lever does not "spring."

Most aperture control ring springs are easy to rehook, as itís on the inside of the flange. Remove the flange screws, carefully tilting the flange so you donít tear the ribbon wire. Now it should be obvious. If everything is hooked up the control ring might be bent causing a bind.

This is easy for me, but Iíve repaired cameras and optics for years. Proper tools are a must.

Why remove ďTakumarĒ

Grey market. Honeywell blocked them from entry, removing the brand made it legal. This reminds me of the K1000.... under 100 on the grey market, wasnít worth repairing vs replacement. Then the yen /dollar changed and the grey market evaporated

Great lens. I use that as my fixed prime, along with my 17/55 and my 50/300.

Great car, no matter what the colors are!
Amazing lines with the top in place, thatís world class by itself.

As to the color of the paint, I saw a identically colored 7 series BMW today in the sun , And the amount of ďflopĒ in the paint was incredible , I suspect thatís the issue youíre having?

Staggering tires is common in many sporty cars, my BMWs did as does my current Corvette. Those same mfgrs also love using two or three rim diameters also in different packages.

Iíve got a box that all my boxes , straps, cases, extra do dads from cameras past present . So it sits on the box until I decide to see how much junk Iíve acquired over the last year, then I close the box and forget about it until my next purchase. I do stack my tripod and monopod on top, ready to go.

Iíve never had luck buying with resale in mind. That said the reason to go mirrorless is shooting needs and style . What makes you happy/money ? I have no needs for mirrorless. Iím a happy Pentax user.

Very interesting street/pocket film camera is the Rollei B35 and its variant.
Still can be had from 100 to 400....
Great glass and a leaf shutter , finicky to operate, until you know itís ďtricksĒ

I have one. Iím not one to kill a battery but do carry a spare . I love the feel it gives me with the 50/300 PLM. I rarely use my monopod due to my comfort level and the SR.
I rarely use the grips release though.

Yep, The ďnormĒ has been 85 , I prefer a bit more, 100mm. Your 55/200 has everything you need, with the exception of the aperture, I prefer2.0 to 2.8 for portraits, as to blur background distractions.

I have the100 f2.8 macro and it does wonders, even though itís a bit long on my KP

We here have followed this pair of adults for a long time, incredible parenting skills overall.

Side story...... You might notice the female is named , her partner is a number. (M15) as Harriet is older thatís why she was named, her First Partner was appropriately named.... ďOzzieĒ who passed away and was replaced by M15 (male15)
