    Olympus Trip....nice!

    That's not just any Ancient Gaul - isn't it modelled on that giant statue of Vercingetorix? Somewhere I have a picture of myself standing below that statue, in the days when I had similar hair and a passable approximation of the moustache too...

    Dear Peter,

    I think that both the camera and the statue are generic Ancient Gauls: no-one is that sure what Vercingetorix looked like, so the overall look is constant, cf. Asterix, though it may be that the statue helped form that image. It is impressive, isn't it?

    Cheers,

    Roger

    I've settled on the Contax G1 system for the time being. Depends on your definition of affordable, but this one was acquired for about $300.

    I have a flickr set HERE if you want to see some sample photos taken with the superb 45/2 Planar T*. I'm looking forward to adding the 28 biogon and 90 sonnar ASAP.

    Its the only RF I have that can focus to 0.5m (1.5') which is pretty handy for those close shots I show.
    If it says Zeiss or Rollei, the answer is YES!

    Mike, I did the same... love the look of the lens, and after lugging around newer slr's, it's like carrying a feather! It's now my favorite walk-about / pocket / snapshot camera!
