    Why not a fisheye . . . circular or rectilinear?

    How about a PB4 bellows for far greater magnification with your 105mm macro? Or make most any other lens a supermacro mounted reversed on the bellows.

    Just to say thanks to everyone for your help. I just had a roll of Fuji Velvia 50 processed in the lab here in town and I have to say I'm very pleased with the results. Bill at Pro Camera here in Charlottesville VA has been super in setting me up with great deals on lenses and he also has the PB4 bellows set aside for me. I picked up a 35mm and a 50mm and should be souping up the black and white this week. I'll post some of the shots sometime next week. Love my Nikon, and that's coming from someone who mostly shoots 4X5.

    Good job! You're gonna love that 105, superb lens!

    Because of the digital craze, people are dumping their old 35mm gear for low prices. The old gear is better built than the new gear and the lenses are every bit as sharp. So treat yourself and buy what you want.

    I regularly use a Nikkor 35mm f/2,5, which was purchased in 1957, with regrets that I coud not afford a, then new F/1.8. I t took several years to realise whagt a great lens I had.

    See Ken Rockwell to find out how good this lands actually is,

    Why would I recommend a camera I know nothing about?

    (In response to "Why not recommend something you don't own?")

    I do like my Nikon N75 as a great carry-around.

    If MF, Olympus OM-2n or Nikon FG/FE are very nice, or FM2n if you want full manual. If AF, N90/N90s or F4s. If you go with Nikon, you can use most AI or AF lenses with any of the Nikon bodies I mentioned. The OM-2n, FE/FG/FM are very compact, with the OM-2n being the most "pro" level of the group. The N90s was "pro-sumer" and the F4s is, of course, pro. The F100 is also pro-sumer, but I don't own one so I can't speak to it. N90/N90s bodies and older AF lenses can be had for a song. The F4s is the most compatible with MF/AI Nikkors, but is also big and heavy, not much different from my ETRS. I have all of these cameras (and more) and these are the ones I tend to use most for casual shooting. Check out Ken Rockwell's site for more info on the Nikon stuff (http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/index.htm). Hope this helps.
