    The FT-3 arrived - a good, honest copy with some wear but not that much for a 45 year old camera. Here's a rough shot on a mid-1890's lens (hence the contrat issues) on the SL.

    And, as a Sony user, oddly enough I don't actually find that all this stuff always works as well as is often claimed.

    It is why there are lightly used secondhand cameras on the market at much reduced prices and should not be discouraged🙄.

    Still trading on e-bay as of last night, caveat emptor.
    I would note caution also with MW Classic noted above, my son had a protracted and poor experience with an inexpensive Nikon lens purchase recently, that may not ne indicative of a general problem to be fair but I would take care.

    Whilst there are some businesses that might be able to re-coat (single coat) a lens it will depend on where you are, whether the lens can be dismantled and cleaned, and not least, the economics of doing so. I would suggest that the answer is that its not really an financially viable repair these days. It would almost certainly be cheaper to buy a lens with good original coating rather than try to re-coat one.

    It was a surprisingly bright yellow-green mould on the post which blew the highlights during the B&W conversion. I had to adjust it prior to converting to sort it out.

    Paul, very atmospheric. I think it might be 20% better with a 10% trim from the rhs. Get rid of that distracting post.

    A couple of days ago I managed to acquire a Black-Paint version of the Light Lens Lab 35mm Summicron '8 Element' reverse-engineered recreation.
    There's another snap of it elsewhere but for now here is a pic of her - alongside the similarly recreated IROOA hood - resting on my M2;

    When I studied, Kodak was considered the company to work for. A job at Kodak was a good job for life. Sadly, in spite of their research and progress with digital (I have owned several Kodak dSLRs) the decisions made which resulted in their effective departure from the digital market must be considered to be one of the biggest blunders in photographic history too. They were a huge company that failed to foresee the consequences of trying to compete against a new technology with an older, existing technology. It was all very sad.

    He did indeed and in fact demanded, rather appropriately for this discussion, that his instrument have greater dynamic range than was commonly available at the time. That required a far stronger frame to handle the doubling and tripling of strings required. Without the ability of a foundry to be able to cast such a part capable of dealing with the increased tension, who knows what might have been written instead? 
    (btw these days it's perfectly possible to write and hear music that cant technically be played by humans.  And one doesn't need to have a degree in comp sci to do so.)
