I will also join - A900 and Tamron CV135.

I need to get away from my computer/desk, and I need to give the camera some exercise.

I will join too.

Let's try this first:
Lens: Minolta 100mm Macro
Camera: Minolta RD-175
Backup Body A900

The backup body will only be used
- if the computer I need to get the files off of the RD-175's hard drive doesn't function.
- If the battery dies completely before I get another.
- If the camera breaks (it is from 1995 after all . . .)

Bolt-on:
Pic-a-day, but it may take me longer to post since the workflow of the RD-175 is a bit longer. The camera is truly a hybrid between a digital camera and film.

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

I have been away from home base until today, so I must hurry to get running!
I'm in with my 'stealth' setup: A55 and Mino 24mm f/2.8. 3 per week. Now if I can only remember the 'Alphabet Song'!

erm, 100mm isn't exactly wide angle (i'm not yet shooting large format ). but here i go with my good old and too seldom used Minolta 100mm f2.
my challenge will be to post 5 pictures per week. cropping: none or square or 1:3 (if planned before pressing the shutter button). ABC? - i'm an analphabet when it comes to this challenge.
passes: for startrail photography (max 2x per week) i will use my Oly if i need a wider or longer focal length than 100mm. startrails are a project of mine and i didn't have many occasions this year to shoot them. in order to maximize my output i need to avoid to be hindered by too heavy restrictions.

Hi,
I hope it's not late to join.
I'll use my A77 with 35 mm 1,8 lens.
And try my best...
