Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

With some lenses, the only thing you can't afford is to miss them!

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

Some of us suffer from LBA but others - well, I'm afraid there's just noooo hope for them.

Enjoy...

It should arrive on Tuesday so really looking forward to using it.

If I don't get along with it, there might be another opportunity for someone (on here of course)...

I suppose there is a risk of you cutting yourself on it, as it's that sharp

It arrived earlier today and I had a go on my K-1, you're not wrong about the sharpness. It's a stunner.

I just need to learn how to take pictures now

You got that at the right price too. I looked on E bay generally and those the Japanese are selling are very very expensive! (four of them).
