[QUOTE=Ohfoohy;34041203]Anyone know their mounts? I'd love to know what these are.

That lens is a 28-200, right?
As much as I love new equipment, yesterday I had my hands on some interesting equipment. 40 year old camera's all of them are 100% working. A new station in Nigera brought the camera's, it's funny to see how for us there useless cameras but for them they work fine.

the pd150 isn't that old and is still capiable

But since I'm selling these, would it be better to sell it with the mount?[/QUOTE] Well, i think the adapter will go higher than the lens itself, but if you are selling the lens without mount adapter i'm not sure if you'll be able to sell it that easily. But with PK adapter, the lens won't go that high either, because people won't notice it's a quite expensive mount adapter. I would still sell the mount adapter seperately. You'll get more money out of that adapter anyway.

I just own a Canon XS and a Canon sd1100, a simple point and shoot. Unfortunately I don't own any fancy lenses.

(the one in the auction also doesn't have a lensmount adapter either. It's a very common lens on ebay, although it doesn't pop up as much on ebay.com as it does on the european ebay, in europe it costs around 50 euros with a lensmount adapter. The most common lensmount adapters cost around 10 usd. If i were to sell it, i would state that in my advert, just for the sake of it.
[url]http://dallas.craigslist.org/mdf/pho/2716512899.html[/url] This is quite a deal, must resist.
Finally think I found the sweet spot with my old non-AI Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 Prime. f/2 and f/2.8 are so fantastically crisp and produce a lovely radial bokeh. I'm really enjoying using it, and finally realizing how fun it is, though I would really love a 35mm f/1.8 or 1.4 prime as well.
I'm looking for a medium format outfit like the Mamiya RB67 or RZ67, Hasselblad 500 series etc. On ebay they go pretty cheap like 300-500 bucks with everything you need to start getting awesome landscapes. My current kit: Canon T2i 18-55mm IS kit lens 70-300mm 85mm f/1.8 100mm f/2.8 macro
You have everything you need for awesome landscapes already.
I just got 2 awesome things from my parents today, my SB-900 and a Nikkor 35mm 1.8G to add to my small collection of a D3000, 18-55mm, 55-200mm, Vanguard Tripod and battery grip.I will post pictures soon once I stop drooling over this :D
SB-900 is bigger than a D3000, it must look pretty crazy.
[QUOTE=Roll_Program;34098428]SB-900 is bigger than a D3000, it must look pretty crazy.[/QUOTE] It does! Looks kinda cartoonish, but I love it :)

[QUOTE=Desuh;34101044]get a large format camera if you want to take awesome pictures of landscapes[/QUOTE] Since when does the camera used automatically make a landscape "awesome". Unless you're making big A0 prints, you hardly need a large format camera anyway. A T2i has more than enough megapickles for A2 prints.
Just picked this up at a thrift store. Konica FT-1 w/ a Tamron 80-210mm (Tamron 103A.) Now I've got to go buy some film. [IMG]http://i44.tinypic.com/2h4jl29.jpg[/IMG]

Put my 580EX II on it. Remembers me of first year highschool kids with their big backpacks...
Industar 50 is on its way [url]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2b/Zenit_E_v2.jpg[/url] Huge image Thats what it will look like on my Zenit-E
Did someone say Zenit? [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/garethgobulcoque/6663970849/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7026/6663970849_03077b33b5_z.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/garethgobulcoque/6663970849/]Zenit EM[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/garethgobulcoque/]Gareth Gobulcoque[/url], on Flickr Just got this.
I would like some advice on which lens I should get and whether the price is worth it It's either Canon EF 50mm 1.4 or Sigma EX 30mm 1.4. I remember a while back that I got a majority voting for the Sigma, but I'm not sure if it's worth the price after all. It's 700SEK or 100$ more. So, any thoughts? As far as I know the Sigma is more ideal if I want a more "correct" field of view because it fits better with my sensor which is APS-C 22.3 × 14.9 mm (1.6x conversion)
Are Blackrapid camera straps any good? Was thinking of buying one but can't decide on which one.

Like you said, it behaves like a 'normal' lens. I think you'll love it.
[QUOTE=DoubleDD;34128313]I have the Sigma and I think it's a great lens. Like you said, it behaves like a 'normal' lens. I think you'll love it.[/QUOTE] I presume you can't really say if it's worth the 700SEK/100 dollars or not though, seeing as you haven't tested the Canon one. Thanks anyway
I finally got something that I was looking for a long time. And no, it's no a Zenit :wink: [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/leevmeister/6667489963/][img]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7032/6667489963_6c0ab88a72_z.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/leevmeister/6667489963/]Canon FD 55mm f/1.2 S.S.C.
