I dedusted my KM5D, just checked my LR library, it was last used in March 2018 (for two shots) and then September 2014 for a few more. It basically retired when I got my A850 in May 2010 and was last "extensively" used to shoot all of week 50 in 2010.

But it works flawlessly, the viewfinder is a bit small and dim and the AF "pedestrian", but the 6MP images off the CCD have a special feel to them, especially when combined with old Minolta lenses.

So thanks for the inspiration to try it out again Mirek, I need to do that more often.

1: Birch



2: Sheep farm



3: Visitor (slightly cropped)



4: Umbelliferous



5: Rhodondendron



6: For alanfrombangor, decaying UK letterbox lost in the Belgian countryside   



7: Through the fields, into the wood



8: Closed


1-4 with Minolta 35/2, 5-8 with Minolta 85/1.4 RS

a6500 & some nice e-mount lenses. Be fond of photography - this is the way to alleviate stress

Pieter, I like the "visitor" very much and the last one too

Aavo, "dedust your bodies" not "photos"

OK, from tomorrow I'll probably not have a chance to shoot too many photos and for sure - not with Dynax 7D. Therefore - last four from today - photos session with a very gentle and nicely posing model









All still with D7D and MAF 50/2.8 Macro.

For my second set I didn't need any dedusting. I still use my A700 (2008) quite often, especially after selling my A850. I find it a very attractive camera, especially for macro coupled with the Minolta 100/2.8 macro.

here's a small crop from this afternoon around the garden, in a small pause between the rainshowers.

1: Red-Orange



2: Wet red



3: Another visitor



4: The heart of a clematis



5: Aquilegia 1



6: Aquilegia 2


All A700 + Min 100/2.8 macro D
