. One thing that I don't know if it was a fluke or there's an issue, but I had some CA on a couple shots. Hopefully the weather will warm up enough that I can get out this week for some more thorough testing.

Care to show an example ?

The Ensinor 24mm f/2.8, kindly received in prompt and safe fashion from Danofmk.
Looking forward to seeing how it compares to the Sigma Super-Wide ii 24mm f/2.8 that is currently in my arsenal...
In other news, I might be making a few de-acquisitions before too long. I've firmly placed my eye on a 3rd-party, natively-mounted lens for my Sony body as well as hoping to scale back on lenses, as there are many I simply don't use (much to the approval of SWMBO)...

I picked-up a AF400FTZ for my SFXn from that auction site for a nice low price. Just as well, as it's as dead as a dodo.

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

Go on LennyBloke. You know you really want one!
Here is the beaten up old Primotar I recently acquired. I have since dismantled it and cleaned the insides.
It is now good as new to all practical purposes. I am delighted with it




Here it is with the rest of the Meyer Optik brigade. The Lydith is missing because it is on the camera taking these images!
From the left: Orestor 2.8/135; Primotar 3.5/135; Pentacon 4/200 and Pentacon 4/300.
At the back: Oreston 1.8/50 and Orestor 2.8/100(preset)



Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Got an L bracket last week, thinking it might end up being a nice idea that I hardly use. Now I wish I'd got it years ago...

Despite the battery contacts looking clean and shiny I thought I would try the old pencil eraser trick. Well, blow me down it worked! I now have a functioning flash for my SFXn. Yay.

It's always done well for me, but I've never really been a pixel peeper. On a pound for pound basis it ought to be a solid performer.

Let us know how you find it. On the 'tests' I did on film it had more saturation than the Miranda 24mm

Just taken delivery of a 04 Toy Wide lens for my Q/QS-1. Not being a completist (where is the Pinocchio emoji?) I don't have the 08 wide telephoto... yet.

Finally, I can post photos again...

I was considering putting some lenses up for sale to raise funds for other purchases...
...of the 9 lenses I'm considering offloading, 7 of them came from you.
I'm sure a significant proportion of the remainder were once yours also...

I got myself a 17-70 SDM to have a play with. I'm looking to sort out the ailing SDM mechanism so whenever I get around to it I'll add a few updates.

The pencil eraser trick works with the *ist series battery contacts too. They can look really shiny but they actually have a layer of insulating muck on them. I've brought two back to life that way.
