    Thought this might interest you guys. Kyle Cassidy, a PJ based in Philly USA has decided to pass on his 85mm f1.8 MF Nikor (don't panic, he's got a AF version for himself). Cosmetically it's a bit battered, but this being Kyle, the optics are still shiny bright.

    All he wants to see if some of your work, a statement on a planned project with the lens and a promise to actually act on it. Details are here:

    Personally, I shoot Minolta MC/MD glass, but I'll be following the progress of this closely. Enjoy :smile:

    as much as i want an 85mm f/1.8 for my F2, i'm sure there are other people who will be able to put it to better use. i'm not a people/portraits guy.

    I hope someone puts it to good use. I've given away several cameras, a few RF's, SLR's, Polaroids, and a TLR. Mostly to the "younger generation" that "found film". Gotta get them into it somehow!
