Big regrets. Our house sale/purchase is well and truly up and running now, which is good, but the time I shall need, not to just take photos but PP them, post them and comment on others will be too much of a challenge this year with so much to do.

Sorry Harald, I have to drop out.

Brian

You will be missed, Brian - but you have the best reasons to drop out.

All the best for your move, Brian, will you be going far? We've been here since 1985, I dread the thought of having to uproot.

Ine, Maarten: Welcome aboard!

Fujinon had some quite interesting fifties - I remember that they once built a F/1.6 55mm.

Thanks Alan. Not moving too far but out of Rutland and just over the border into Lincolnshire. We are down-sizing now that we are both retired and our current village has no community focal point such as a pub, shop, hall or church. So we are buying a bungalow in Corby Glen Village which will suit our final years better. Still only 10 minutes to our golf club and lots of dog walks on the door step.

Just got to keep fingers crossed the process of selling and buying goes through okay. We have confirmed buyers (who are in rented, hence no chain there) and we have found the right property to move to (which is empty so no chain there either). Next hurdle is the surveyors visit here tomorrow to confirm for our buyers the cottage value is right. Got everything crossed for that one.

This is one of the lenses I plan on using, but I like the 1.8/55 takumar better for sharpness&redering

That's a nice collection of classical Minolta lenses! Welcome, Marius (sorry, if my first name guess has gone awry)!
