Had a look back at my previous three Oktoberfests and see that I have used Min 24/2.5, Sony 30/2,8, Min 50/2.8, Min 85/1.4 and Min 100/2.8 (twice) so I feel I should pick two different lenses this year. So I am going to use the Min 35/2 and the Min 50/1.4 RS.

I have two Batis lenses, at both ends of the popular prime-spectrum
18mm (F/2.8) and 135mm (F2.8).
And both are 'underused'. So that is settled

Arriving any day now, I will use Hugo Meyer Kino Plasmat 1:1.5 f=16mm, a 16mm motion picture lens (APSC, probably vignetted). That is, if I can find a way to mount it (this lens has an unfamiliar mount). This decision will displease most viewers because this means extremely swirly bokeh. As I will not be betting on one horse, I will throw in the Meyer-Optik Domiron 2/50 as a second lens.

I still have to determine what to photograph - with which lens?

Well when the Samyang T&S 24mm arrives in time it'll be one of the 2 lenses i'll use (i found one for 499€ brand new in Germany - shipping cost included).

The 2nd one will be the Samyang 85mmf1.4 manual A-mount glass that stays too much into the closet (having the LA-EA3,4,4R and 5 - tons of options are open - the LA-EA3 may be the best option i assume).

3 pictures a week - camera's will depend on my mood.

Oh chips: we are planning a trip to Milano in oktober, by train .

For Dordrecht I'll stick to my other primes: Samyang 14+24+35, Viltrox 85mm f1,8, together with the both oktoberfest-primes...

May the higher powers of photography be with me.


Mmm, I'm trying my old Konicon Hexanon, but I don't see any nice things in it...
I'd like to change my selection into Samyang 35mm f2,8 and the Viltrox AF85/1,8 II FE...
Harm, with A7iii+A7Rii plus 6-400mm glass.

After a system crash of my otherwise faithful MacBook Pro that necessitated an SSD drive reset to get rid of, I have managed to reload software from scratch and have all systems necessary for my workflow going again. Just in time for Oktoberfest.

Still not decided on lens(es) to be used, we'll see.

I'll join in and get you off the 'unlucky' number.

Had intended to do the postcard exchange too but missed it.

I'll say a minimum of 3 a week, combo(s) to be decided.

Cheers.

C'mon guys and gals, if you haven't signed up yet it's time to do so. We have room for plenty more. It starts next friday so make up your mind quickly.
