The 65-116 TET is my latest acquisition. Looks like its in better nick than my other one (in the centre) but has a stiffer action and rattles so I guess a bearing or something similar is loose in there... I should really check the auto-aperture function in case the connector is knackered.

Regardless, heres my Oly OM Zuiko Macro family - the 80, 135 & 50 -

Well, it's about time Roddy told us whether he won it or not. :hmmm:
I didn't. Again.

But then I discovered a new one locally that I bought in a fit of angst for just slightly more than I would have found a used one going for on eBay. Brand new apparently (we'll see how true that is) and under €300. It's on its way via snail-mail but I'm happy to wait.... the seller is close enough I can drive it back to him with some friends in the car if he's telling porkies...

Thanks for thinking of me, Brian and Rob :)

Glad to hear you got sorted then Roddy (and it wasn't me that outbid you :laugh: ).

I look forward to seeing some lovely riverside scenes of your new location taken with it.

Brian.

Didn't buy it this week but it arrived probably more to the end of last week. Now can I remember how to spell it -
Xiaoyl 42.5 f/1.8. Totally a good price and so far seems sharp and well worth $NZ167 delivered.

The early bird gets the worm. Just bought this on ebay for $48 US plus shipping to Canada. All in all about $100 Canadian for me. I hit buy it now before reading the full listing. My hands are still shaking :)
Can't wait for it all to arrive.
I wouldn't have known anything about these lenses if it wasn't for the Kodak enthusiasts here, especially @gnarlydog. Thanks folks.

Anyone using these focal lengths? I am not that familiar with them.

Bought a Metz 58 AF-1 strobe from another member. With my FL360L I have a two-strobe RC setup, just need to buy another stand and umbrella.

Made in Germany! Now that is a rarity these days.

I bought a Meiki 3.5mm fisheye off of KEH. There is no reason I need this. I have the 8mm Fisheye and the 9mm BCL. but that circle in the center of the frame just called to me. I think it 20 years ago or so I bought a Holga Fisheye camera and just had fun with it. This looks like it will be the same.

From the ol' holga.

Couldn't resist a Sigma 62mm achromatic macro lens that was listed for peanuts. I am very comfortable with an achromatic lens stuck on a zoom lens, and I have a few of them in different sizes. Gave it a quick try.
