well, I think the general opinion is: No one objects, as long as they are posted in the " my photo's " section and accompanied with the shameful confession which brand camera was used. And don't post any in the gallery or competitions. (both)

Now.......to get on topic again, which film was the discussion about, again??

The Russian lenses are made from tooling taken in war reparations from the Carl Zeiss factories.

For the sake of completeness this is only true if the lens in question carries the dove prism logo, signifying it was made at the KMZ factory - that's where all the Carl Zeiss manufacturing equipment ended up going as a reward for the factory's efforts in producing optical equipment for the Russian forces during the war.

I've had several Helios 44's pass through my hands and I always sell them on, just keeping the best (the quality is variable to say the least). I have to say the best ones always seem to carry the "shish kebab" logo of the Valdai factory (one of the smallest factories) - maybe that's just coincidence or maybe they had harder taskmasters...

Anyway, what were we talking about again..?

Hardgravity, I dont think you could point the Helios at the sun (that's ironic) and get the same results that a SMC Takumar would achieve.

Gauntlet thrown to the ground

If I tried looking at the sun through ANY lens I wouldn't be able to see the gauntlet!

Checking my 44s they have a kebab on them, just lucky I suppose1

For his undergraduate dissertation Lawrence of Arabia carried a half plate camera around Palestine and Syria photographing Crusader castles. Stunning photographs. The examiners were so impressed that they returned the dissertation after it had been examined. It was eventually published in about 1986.

Best wishes, Kris.

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

However, now that we are as unashamedly off topic as anyone can be, I bought a copy of 'Tommy', Ken Russell's film in the basket beside the checkout in Morrisons for £2.99 on Saturday. It makes a welcome change from seeing ones of mine (which I buy to save any embarrassment with the neighbours and the royalty is usually more than the cost of the DVD) - but I digress.

In 'Tommy' all the cameras in shot are Pentax. Product placement? Well the film distributor, Rank, also distributed Asahi Pentax in the UK.

Ok nice,So what about ''Blow up''?

It never occurred to me that it looked like a kebab, but it does

This page shows a lot of the Russian Optical factory logos.

You know the answer to that is NO So don't stay away, because of this discussion. BTW, I haven't seen any competition or gallery entries from you using Nikon gear.

Thanks for that (and everybody else who replied likewise). Not really been away just haven't done much posting. There are a few Nikon shots up now, but I won't enter any of them in the competions, I think they should remain for Pentax images only (wouldn't want to put you all at a disadvantage )

LBA is good for you, a Lens a day helps you work, rest and play.
