    I was inspired by the D40 people to ask this question.

    What is your camera body of zen? What lens? And what do you shoot?


    Nikon FE + 28/F2
    Ilford HP5 BW 400 / Ilford Delta 100 BW

    I take my FE + 28mm out and about with some black and white film and cruise for fun things to shoot in BW. I really like architecture at the moment.

    What about you?

    Well, as of now I don't have many choices in bodies :) 

    But my lens of zen is the 35mm 1.8
     
  3. At the moment: D300 + 28mm AI
     
  4. For me, it is my D1x and 20mm UD (AI'd). It is a wonderful combo for landscapes and nature shots.

    God Bless,
    David

    Leica MP and Summicron 35 + Tri-X

    The D700 feels just so heavy and cumbersome after that …

    It depends on what my purpose is:
    candids with friends/people: Zeiss Ikon + 35mm f/2 Biogon.
    color film: Portra VC (still figuring out 160 or 400)
    b&w film: TMAX 100 or 400

    trying to be artsy: D700 + 58mm f/1.2 AIS or Zeiss 100mm f/2 Makro.

    My D300 + 70-300VR and 3 pods of orcas off the shore of Lime Kiln Park. That's not only Zen, it's Nirvana :)

    Huh? Everything's Zen. I don't think so.
