    Hey folks! Albeit late, I just wanted to thank everybody for their input. As some suggested, I kept my eyes peeled on the classified section here and got a great deal from a fellow APUG member a few weeks ago. Here's the new addition!

    It's an exciting time for me! I unearthed all my darkroom stuff from the garage. About 1/3rd of everything,

    Enjoy!
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Hey folks, I won't pretend to be an expert on DOF. However, aside from its quickness, what's the hubbub all about regarding the 110/2.8? The 'portrait' lens? I ask because I have an RZ 90, and RB 65/180mm lenses. The 90 is 3.5 and I wonder how much more control the 2.8 gives me as I seem to get decent enough depth at 3.5. The 110/2.8 isn't cheap - trying to figure it out!

    The extra 2/3 stop makes a definite difference when composing and focusing. The lens is relatively compact, very sharp, and a focal length that appeals to many people.

    Wow, Gus. Nice setup. Welcome back to film.

    Like Matt says.


    I used to own an RZ and the 50mm ULD, the 110mm, and the 180mm. The 110 was my favorite.

    The first time I shot it I took some group family portraits of my wife, our daughter, her son and daughter-in-law, and new granddaughter. These were waist and up seated group shots with different ones holding the baby so no one individual was that large in the photos. My wife complained that you could see every pore and wrinkle in her skin.

    Congrats on the new gear!! Good choice on the RZ too, thing is built like a tank and I can't wait to see the shots you get from it. As far as the 110 f/2.8, I own one and it's my favorite lens out of any lens I own. I highly recommend buying it. Between that and the 50mm ULD I don't want anything else!

    I had both of them. Take both of them to make some portrait shots and you will know why people like 110mm/2.8 better, distortion, view angle, etc... After that I sold my 90mm/3.5. Btw the 90mm is bigger, it's as big as 50mm f/4.5.

    NICE. Congrats and welcome to the MF party ! Two suggestions: I'd recommend a good cable release and a ball head on a sturdier tripod. I couldn't see the film mags you scored, but you can probably find some used 6x9 mags to work on that back AND a polaroid back that'll do Fuji color pak film.

    A good portrait lens for that body is a 150mm. And for landscapes, etc., a 50mm Distagon. Keep checking around. Those used lenses abound these days. Oh, and I like B&H prices on film.
    Have lotsa fun.
    Mark
