Got a shot of a Kingfisher feeding on some fish today. The DFA 150-450 seals held up..... amazingly strong glass used on the water tower.

Went for a walk this morning around Paika Station (circa 1860's).... just fooling around. The lake had been dry for over 100 years.... flooded a few years back to help restore the habitat (Lower Murrumbidgee River flood plain)

10% of DCexpert on eBay as well..... pricers start a bit cheaper there for most things..... so a DFA 28-105 is about $558 inc postage... must get one one day (maybe... when it's 20% again)

I was considering getting a pouch for my 43 for it's last birthday, however it asked for the money instead (and then went out and bought some new clothes to wear out....).

This is it's favourite outfit:


(taken by it's older brother, a Silver SMC K50/1.2)

I guess some of our 43's aren't happy to just be at home lenses.

I sought out an early one.... it makes 70yo’s look like LeRolls models.



An as new low serial no one from japan is cheaper here (Australia) then new..... so might as well live the brand, both by head and heart.
