@Phil Wood - your lens extravaganza has been one of the highlights of the challenge.


Thanks Wētāpunga, glad you're enjoying it. It's been nice to do something that makes a tiny bit of sense of my mission to put together a complete collection of Minolta AF lenses. ...


It's also been fun comparing some of the lenses you've tried with ones I've owned in the past. I hope you succeed in your mission to get a complete collection!

Keep up the great work, folks!


Ah, I'd wondered why you had dropped off the posting. My original plan was there should be one evening (or maybe morning) every weekend I could go off and take photos somewhere. And if not, with some lighting and a product table in my office, I could stage something at least one lunchtime per week.

It all presupposed I would a) have a car b) if I had a car I was allowed to travel and c) if I had a car, and could travel, I'd have the time. Meeting all 3 of those conditions turned out to be less straightforward than i expected!

Only 6 out of 51 zooms to go, but 24 out of 43 primes - it isn't going to happen. Though I see I could buy both 600/4s on ebay from Japan for only £6350 (plus 20% VAT, £300 p&p & tax collection fees) - about £8,000 (16,000 NZD), way more than I've spent on the entire collection to date.

If I ever announce I have the complete set you'll know I've won big on the lottery.

Is it okay to also post some of our Photo150 challenge photos in the themed views also?

I fear that our little challenge isn't getting much exposure and was wondering if Dyxum etiquette allowed for double-posting in this case.

Agree.
I do share my 150 shots in other themed views.

Thanks @onsplekkie, I got almost instant feedback when I posted a flower shot, so yeah, your system of sharing seems sound.

I've been a bit busy; shooting not a problem, posting a bit more trouble some....
Surely overtime I'll find a way to finish this challenge up before the end of the year

crossposting my shot, now most of them, if you click on them, it takes the viewer directly to my 150-Weeks-post
