Well, the siren sang a little for me. I ended up getting a Metz 45 CL3 flash for my yet to arrive SQ-Ai. I ummed and ahhed over that one for a while, as I had planned on just using the camera for a while AND then building up the kit....but I couldn't resist..

I also ended up with half a Minolta 50mm Macro kit (the bit I am missing....the lens!). It came with a reversing ring and a dedicated extension tube. I tried it with the standard 50 F1.4 and it seems to work, so I am happy (for $5).

I was a little disappointed with the turn out compared to last year, though, but hey, there were some good bits to be seen.
