    When I'm done using the OM-3Ti, it will be given to somebody who is dedicated to keeping it in use. It was a gift to me for that purpose and I'll pass it on under the same terms.

    However, it may take a LONG time, so don't wait up for it.

    Hey, this is just the sort of effect that these types of lenses excel at!

    Using out-of-focus objects behind the subject as tonal blocks can add something different to a composition,can be great fun just experimenting with what can be achieved, providing of course that one likes/appreciates the isolation of shallow depth of field!!

    Nice one.

    There aren't many lenses that make us drool like this. Puddles everywhere.

    I am glad you sold the Lens, John! It's an amazing piece of workmanship, something to master over a lifetime.

    I use a 250mm f/4.5 for 6x7cm format (Mamiya Rb) and it's already a monster, weighs about 75% of the Olympus 250mm F2. It's interesting to imagine what a 250/2.0 would look like for medium format, not to mention the incredible "look" that would be possible (similar to a 125mm f/1.0 for 35mm). Alas, such a lens would weight at least 16kgs (assuming one has to only quadruple glass volume, often it's more).

    I know you were kidding, and I also prefer medium format, but it's interesting to speculate...

    Totally Off-topic:
    I really love the old Mamiya 250mm on my RB67, the single-coated optics together with contrasty slide film make for some great colours I find:
