Thanks: am delighted with the results so far - was sure I'd mess up on the focus but its ok. There is something magical about using a waist viewer, I hope it doesn't wear off too quickly. For the Kiev I am limited to a 120mm lens or a wide angle, since I no longer have the 80mm option, so I relied on the wide angle option for up-close subjects. The Kiev is a lovely camera but again you need an independent light meter.
