Greetings, all,

Iím trying to convince herself that this is a great option for landscape images. Okay, okay, she was great over the K1ii and (mumbles number) lenses. Also understanding about the 645Z and the 45-85 lens. She is, however, drawing the line on my purchase of this. Says itís not portable enough. Pshaw! Has she never heard of an axle and tractor tyres?

Now hereís the thing, what arguments could you suggest to overcome this, in my view, totally unreasonable objection?

All arguments gratefully received.



Be well, stay well.

Purchase the articulated lorry with flat bed trailer first and then suggest you need something to make it look good

Tough one this...although I have to say if i'm being honest she's right...it is too impractical...whatever were you thinking?

I think the best way out of this would be to offer to move to a larger house with much larger rooms...one of which could act as your indoor photo studio and she could have a pantry and perhaps a walk in shoe cupboard...or something.

Let us know how you get on.

Not portable enough? It's a folder.

And if she's still not persuaded, find out what she wants and negotiate. We once got a new 3 piece suite and hi-fi in quick succession. Guess which one I wanted...

You may need to confirm that you have no need to grow a mustache in order to operate it.

On the other hand, if you already have a mustache then this point is moot.

A practical point is that you won't need a separate tent when going camping: the bellows offer dual-use.

I've just ordered a chinese adapter so I can use this on my K-1, not sure if it'll be able to focus to infinity. Ideally I'd want to try it with the astrotracer function.

I think you will find it will focus further than that.

She might be more amenable if you can get it cheaper without the Borrowers.
