Selling and buying some....

I have been selling stuff, and buying one some.
Soligor 300mm 1:5.5 m42
Cosina 19-35 1:3.5-4.5
I bought a Carl Zeis lens cleaning set ;)
and a 
Sigma 15-30 1:3.5-4.5 EX DG ASP
and some
fuji 35mm negative and positive film, expired.

I an happy with that Sigma so far, need to take it outside soon!
Will be usefull as a street/candid in the city and possibly nature for my D90. But also on my F100 i will use this a lot i guess(when a testroll is ok).

So far for today!

grts, Peter

Kiron 105mm 1:2.8 F-Mount

Bought a small box with Nikon slr camera's and 2 lenses.
The camera's(Nikon f401, f601 and f801s) are for sale again with one lens. I bought this box for one reason. The box included a Kiron 105mm 1:2.8, wich was, according the seller, in good condition...
Well it makes photo's....but...
The focusring is not in good shape feels like i'm only moving air most of the time, but it goes eventually. It doesn't seem to move completely tot 1:1 and infinity is totally lost... Sometimes the diapraghm hangs, but a small but gentle slap with a finger makes it go in the right postion...

But.......... i LOVE it....

See Below:
Taken with the Kiron 105mm 1:2.8 F-Mount.
Iso 400 - f4 - handheld @ 1/320 and 1/250

I knew the rep of this lens and despite it's flaws, the images it produces are perfect for what i want.
Shall i get it repaired, it will set me back 150 to 200 euro's, or shall i just go and save money for the Nikon 105 1:2.8 micro VR?

cheers, Peter.

Abstract realisations

With the gray weather i started experimenting inside the house.
I used the E-P1 mostly for this.
The 2 above pictures are with the E-P1.
The first is a out of focus with a dim lighted object in the house.
The second is light painting with slow shutterspeeds towards a light source, in this case the television.

Fun to do, hope the results are nice for others to.

Exif and more can be fount on my flickr in the Abstract set.
