up coming target in mind...
I wanna buy one more close-up filter for my Yashica!!
I got a rolleinar no.1, and I guess there will have lots of fun using a no.3 (wahaha, can have super close-up photo!!)

I´m satisfied so far, because my last targets all became reality: a beattie intenscreen (split) for my bronica sq-a (amazing brightness!), a holga, an agfa box and a flash for my dynax 7d.

But I know my next projekt: building a tele-holga..hoho...My last projekts were 135mm film with holga and macro-holga (holga + three close up lenses and shooting butterflies). Wanna see some Holga Macro butterflies?
Huen * 10 years ago
wow, mondwind, I saw your photos taken by holga already, that's really GREAT!!!!!!!!!!
very impresive to use a Holga to take marco photos!!
daffie @ flickr 10 years ago
mondwind, tele-holga!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
please tell us when you've done it~~~
i'm very eager to know!!! :D

Well, I spent all of my $$ in P645N.
So I think I won't buy anything in near future.
The next one is...Leica...ha ha. = =

I think for once I am pretty happy!

Got my OM4Ti with 24/2.8, 28/3.5, 40/2, 50/1.8 and 100/2.8. Maybe the 21/3.5 or 85/2 but I just cant quite seem to part with the cash having it pretty covered with the others. I think I'd be pretty happy with just the 24, 40 and 100mm if I had to choose.

I wanna ask for your advice~~ :)

If I wanna buy a wide-angle for my OM-2n, is the Zuiko 28/2 better in performance than 35/2? I think 28mm is the widest choice for me as a start, for I don't seem to know how to use 25mm or wider. ^__^ (and you know, I love big apertures too.)
Froghorn Leghorn 10 years ago
Yip the 28/2 has a much better reputation than the 35/2. Supposed to be one of the sharpest Zuikos ever made! Also it takes 49mm filters like all the other 2.8s which is great! I have always wanted one but my sample of the 28/3.5 is really sharp and contrasty and I haven't quite managed to talk myself out of it!

I get the impression from everything Ive read that the 35/2 suffers from sample variation a lot. The 28/2 seems to consistantly get rave reviews.

You have probably been here already but if not its a good place to start.
Froghorn Leghorn 10 years ago
If you can find/afford one the 40/2 is my hands down favorite. It's almost a pancake lens and super sharp, smooth. It lives on my camera 90% of the time and makes for a compact set up with an OM body!
daffie @ flickr 10 years ago
hi Adam,

Thanks for your great advice!!

I've read somewhere that the 40/2 is VERY expensive!!
(around US$900 or so?)
Hmmm... maybe too pricy for me at this stage :(

Well then, I'll set my target on 28/2! :)
Yet it's just not easy to find 2nd-hand mf zuikos in Hongkong...
my wishlist is getting longer~~~~haha~~
Froghorn Leghorn 10 years ago
The 40/2 shouldn't be that expensive!

Should easily be able to find one on ebay for half that amount! It's still quite a bit but it is a great lens! I picked mine up for about $399 I think.

(which still seemed a lot!)

The amount of use I have got out of it is worth it and I'm sure it will hold its value.

But I'm sure the 28f2 will be perfect! (and is probably better anyway if you prefer a wider angle). If you get one I'll be jealous!!

Thanks for all your great advice in the past.

Hello mr.analog,

*laky PRO 10 years ago
i checked out the prices and got a bit freaked. don't think i can get budget approval. =/

and the rollei sl66 allows for tilt (!!!!).
daffie @ flickr 10 years ago
oh, tilt !!!
that's fun stuff !!!
via an adapter or lens itself??
*laky PRO 10 years ago
via the camera itself. there are bellows that extends out.

oh, i am organising the next hk flickr shootout in discovery bay.
