Ok, I'll give it a try for 3/week, more if I can.
Both camera's with either the macro, or one of the WA, which I will determine later.


Still time to go, but I guess I'm in for the wide end of my 12-24mm.

Count me in. Been extremely busy at work but Iím going to make this work for Atleast 3 pics a week. Have a very new a7r5 I need to run through itís paces to see what itís capable of. Iíll be shooting the 200-600 at 600mm exclusively with and without a 1.4 teleconverter all at 600 mm. This was a week area with the r4 so Iím going to see if the r5 is up to the challenge.

Due to illness I missed the rokkor challenge I signed up for, so time to make amends and be foolish! How foolish you may ask? How about this for foolishness:

Lens: KM 200mm f4 telemacro
Camera: Minolta RD175 (if I can get one of my copies functioning)
pic-a-day

I think that is restrictive enough without any add-ons. Probably will need to spend time exploiting older macro flash protocols with this setup.

a900, a700, 5600hs, 1200 (w/MFC-1000), 3x converted f1.2 (Rokkor 58, Nikon 50 ais, and Pentax 50), 85mm f1.4, 100mm f2.8, 70-400G, and way too much other stuff to mention

Or a 85mm Viltrox f1.8.

You have the Minolta AF200/4 Macro APO G? That is one rare one!

Sign me up, undecided about the lenses atm.

Yes, that is one. Bought it over the winter and canít wait to give it a try. Really should be using my a99ii to see how far I can push sharpness, but that isnít foolish enough. The 1.75 mpx really wonít push this very hard.

Okay, I am in. Iíll have to look and see what lenses I have that I forgot about but if there is nothing exciting then the Voigtlander 110/2.5 has been neglected for a while.

7/week and Iíll allow myself to rotate but not otherwise crop (except occasionally for outtakes, as noted).

I'm going to aim for minimum 3/week, but hopefully will be able to do more than than. I am looking forward to it.

Just checked the lenses I used the last couple of years and it seems I haven't used my Sony SEL 20/2.8 and Canon EF 85/1.8 USM for any challenge. The Canon might be replaced by the Sony 85/1.8 when the Canon 85/1.8 fails (again). As usual I'll take 7 pictures a week.
