Nice sharp, colourful set.
I have spent a day in Dublin with a 135mm as my only lens for the day, and I found it refreshing.
I think it's a great focal length for walk about.
Makes you think about the shot more.
Good shooting sir. 👏👏👏

Thanks Derek, this sort of thing always gets my photographic spirits up after a spell of doldrums (when it turns out well!). It's a fairly tight focus length on aps-c, but it's fun trying to find squeezed angles and having to move to fit things in, so a worthwhile lesson in excluding the extraneous.

A belated thank you is in order, sorry guys .... Thanks Philip, Andy, Sry and Peter for your comments here. Sry, I look forward to seeing something from your M135, which no doubt rivals my Tamron for IQ from that era of lens design.

Philip, HOCIR ? I'm afraid I was lost with that, not even an internet search came up with anything .....

Sorry Nigel - just my daft attempt at humour, as you are holding a XATNEP camera in image 8.

I'll get my coat!

Cheers.

Ahhhh, got it! Hadn't even clocked that I doubt I would ever be any good at word scramble puzzles .... It sounded more like a new space telescope satellite, or some sort of new Hadrin Collider device! At least I know now what the brand name on my camera will look like should I ever get a Ricoh and use it for a selfie in front of mirrored glass ..... (that seems an unlikely occurrence in any case).
