I would probably go with the Pentax if I were just going to use things as-is, but the RB lenses have built-in leaf shutters, which means they could also be used on a view camera.

Refurb 50D is almost never in stock via Canon Direct. If it's there, grab it. Great camera.

In other news, I'm picking up alot of chatter re: Canon and CES. I was all set to not expect any DSLR announcements but I've heard this may no longer be the case. Also, apparently the Canon 3D project is still up and running. If I were a betting man, I would have to imagine it may become Canon's answer to the D800, but that's just conjecture at this point.

Hey Gone, could you add the following for me?

Nikon N2020
Nikkor 50 f/1.4 AI-S

I definitely lucked out with this lens. I bought it in BGN condition from KEH and it's immaculate. No scratches on the lens elements (maybe a little dust to sweep off), aperture ring and focus are smooth, and it's actually one of the sharpest 50s I've seen wide open. I was just testing it on my D7000 and I wasn't seeing a whole lot of spherical aberration like I noticed with my AF-D. Only issue so far is that the bayonet grinds a tad when mounting.

Will they cover that much area though? (4x5)

No, but they will cover 6x7, which would be great for times when I cannot lug around the huge 4x5 camera.

Or you can buy a roll film back and shoot 6x7 with movements, although I'm guessing the image circle size would be an issue. F it, just buy a GX680.
post #18497 of 29551
I like the GX680, but its wide angle lens selection sucks. It also weighs a ton.

I've looked at rollfilm backs for 4x5, but I don't really see the point. If I'm going to lug around that huge thing, there's no way I'm going to be shooting 6x7 on it. It just seems like such a waste. I would like a 6x12 back though.

Yeah, I agree on pretty much all of that. I think if you're a wide-angle shooter the GX sucks because it has maximum of 9* (IIRC) shift on the 2 widest lenses because their image circlesa are so small.

And yeah, I would not probably want a roll back for 4x5, although if I really wanted the minimum carry weight for 6x7, I'd probably bank up to a Mamiya 7. So good.

So, got my focusing screen at Calumet, and i stopped by Helix as well and ended up picking up some film to work with.

B&W
2x Fuji Neopan 100 Acros
1x Ilford Delta 400
1x Ilford Panf Plus 50

Color
1x Fuji Velvia 100F
1x Kodak Ektachrome 100
1x Fuji Pro 400H

I figure that'll be a good selection to work with.biggrin.gif

EDIT: Holy crap, the EE-S screen makes a huge difference. Manual focusing just became a billion times easier.

If they still made Acros in 220, I'd be all over it.
