So,now I'm hunting down a 30mm got my eye on one, will cost over $200.00
A conclution I have come to ; I like digital 75% and film 25%.
But,I gotta tell ya ... I LOVE some of these cameras...; My Gloria,my Kowa super 66,even my yashica 124g...gotta say...I like most of my others too,Retina,Bessa "L" with 15mm.... Medium format folders...
OK - FOR PHOTOGRAPHING ; 75% / 25%
Oh - remember how I said - my BEST lens for my is my Tokina 10-17mm It's a FF fisheye(zoom) ; as is this 30mm(not zoom though). FF fisheye on 6X6 SQUARE....WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW .....!!!
(Best over-all camera ; Canon SX 40 IS)all others of my cameras take secondary awards....
I'm hoping to win this 30mm on Fri. ,that I have not bid on yet. YES - I am SO excited.
How can I believe I'm about done buying (cameras)...?!
...why do we have to be done with anything...!.(?)
and a VERY happy day to all. , Larry
Added note ;
JUST WON ONE MINUTES AGO !!! Looks beautiful condition,but - no rear filters.

and black and white ...from the same roll ;
#4 is a crop. CONCLUSION ;Don't use outdated film.Camera is fun to use ...meter is a little inconvent. I used the lens with NO filter on the back...I have 4 filters. I had trouble with focusing...lens says one thing ground glass focusing says another.... SO ; for me ; use ISO 400 film,(not ISO160),and use f 8- f11+,not f4 through f 5.6 But - as is,it kinda has/does it's own thing/has it's own look.
Well - my camera and lens are both condition 8+ or better... it's an honor to shoot.
Am I wrong in saying...this shoot/film/results...look old-time. (And that valuable in itself.
