    I'll join, because I need a slight challenge to get going again, lately there hasn't been so much life in the hobby and really the post processing queue is of quite a length..but I need to think about something other than work during the fall and a pre-release version of Darktable 2.7 has just less than a week ago hit my main (Linux) machine and brought a UI refresh(first time ever since I started using it) (bits of Googles 'Material' theme) and what seems like a small speed increase.

    'Slight' challenge is:

    3pics/week for October.
    Voigt 21/3,5 native & Voigt 75 2,5 M-mount.

    Yes please. A77 with Sony 35/1.8DT chooses itself since I'll need lightweight gear for part of the month while travelling. Undecided on my second lens.

    I'll join.
    I think I'll try something a little different for me and immerse myself in my least favorite focal length 35mm.
    week 1: A99 + SAL35F14G
    week 2: A850 + Konica Minolta AF 17-35mm 1:2.8-4D
    week 3: A77 + SAL35F18
    week 4: A99 + Minolta AF 35-105mm 1:3.5-4.5 RS
    4 per week

    Have to make up for the failed July challenge.
    I'll sign up for at least per week. Lens(es) still TBD.

    Count me in, probably with a hardly used samyang 14mm and for sanity a 35mm za. I'll try for 7 a week.
    You win or you learn, I seem to be doing a lot of learning....

    Hi Jet. Looking back at my archives I did Octoberfest 2012; 2015 and 2016 so it is high time I did another one. Thank you for setting it up.

    I'm in to give my neglected NEX-6 some action with my equally neglected SamYangs: AF35f2.8 and 8f2.8 fishy manual focus.

    5 a week and aiming to base all photos within the boundary of our tiny hamlet of Barrow in Rutland.

    Count me in!
    7/week, definitely with 35mm/f2.8 ZA and maybe 24-240mm@240mm to mix it up occasionally...

    I'm up for a challenge too! It's a good opportunity to get to know a recently purchased VCL-ECU2 which I'll use with an E 16mm on a NEX5.
    C & C always welcome
