And I thought that lens lust is no more problem for me. Well, I survived more than a year without any purchase but recently it hit me again.

I bought an EL-Nikkor (75mm f/4) for my bellows and will probably replace it with Rodenstock APO-Rodagon soon (I borrowed one for tests).

Last week I gave in to my collecting addiction and got an unused 105 F/2.5 AiS to accompany my 28/2 and 35/1.4. After the first few test shots I can say that this lens will be more than a collectible, an optical gem!

O.k., both lenses cost me roughly 200 EURO, but
the same guy who lent me the Rodenstock also lent me a NOCT!!!! and now I am in deep trouble .....
This lens is awesome! Focussing is a bit difficult, though. But the image quality, even at f/1.2 is nothing short of amazing.

As soon as I find some spare time to edit the pics I will post a few results.

And then I will consult my psycho therapist .....

Cheers

Nadja is 18 months old, so it will only be 17 years before you'll need to make your first college tuition payment... :rolleyes:.

I just looked through your galleries, and Nadja is quite the beauty! Now that you've conquered the basics of parenting, isn't it time to give her a little brother to play with?

Thanks Frank. Yes, she is a jewel. But so is every child to its parents.

You are in conspiracy league with my wife, aren't you?
Seriously, we are considering that.

Unbelievable, isn't it?

MF 45/2.8 P
MF 85/2.8 PC Micro
MF 105/2.5 AiS

AF 50/1.8 D
AF 60/2.8 D Micronikkor
AF 85/1.4 D
AFS 12-24/4 G DX
AFS 28-70/2.8 D
AFS VR 70-200/2.8 G IF
AFS TC 14E II
Canon 500 D
Rodenstock TV-Heligon 42/0.75
Rodenstock XR-Heligon 75/1.1
De Oude Delft Rayxar 50/0.75

so, I'm quite buffered against lens lust and the lenses I really crave are out of my (financial) reach (like the 200/2 VR).

Harry, you are a hoot and a fantastic photographer, but the right glass really helps!

Can hardly wait to see the results from your new purchases.
