Yo,

just received part of my Christmas present to myself:

Nikkor-W 300mm, f5.6
Nikkor-W 135mm, f5.6

WOW!

This is some really nice gear! They were both oboy auction wins, from a local area photographer, who welcomed local pickup. Both are in excellent condition, with perfect optics and shutters. They came with original caps and Horseman and Sinar lens boards for under $600/pair. It is my hope that they will be useful for portraits.

Another auction win is expected to arrive shortly:

Nikkor-W 210mm, f5.6

I am looking for the Nikkor-SW 90mm, f4.5 (IN CASE ONE OF YOU SPOTS ONE), to fill my primary range in (roughly) 1.5X increments:

90mm-----135mm-----210mm-----300mm

What are you guys using for macro? With some experience working with the above, I hope to develop a feel for which super-wide angle lens to get later.

I expect to receive shortly (surprised?) a used 4X5 Tachihara Wood Field camera and polaroid 545i back, which I thought would provide good practice while I am getting my arms around large format (never tried it). What film would anyone like to suggest for this back? In 35mm, I regularly use, because I like the look so much, Fuji Velvia and Provia transparency film. And I am still sampling and experimenting with various B&W negative films, several of which I really like; I'm still working up to an understanding of them.

best, andy
