    I Just started the process of converting a Polaroid 110A to 4x5

    Autofocus for Nikon - 10-30mm kit lens

    Manual lenses with adapters for both the Canon and Nikon systems:

    I have over 30, but the main ones I use are:
    Yashinon 60mm f/2.8 Macro
    Yashica 28mm f/2.8
    Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 45mm f/2.8
    Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.5

    Six way macro focus rail
    Cobra Ring Flash
    Numerous different extension tubes, flashes, tripods, monopods, studio flashes and other odds and ends.
    I just found this forum and I am happy about that. I have been obsessed with photography for 30+ years. In the last few years, I have primarily made the move to digital. This year I picked up my first mirrorless camera. Although my eyes aren't quite what they used to be and I do use the autofocus kit lenses from time to time, I primarily use older, manual focus, prime lenses.

    My main areas of interest in photography are:

    Macro Photography
    Nature Photography (wildlife, landscapes, woodland photography, etc.)
    Alternative Processes
    Special Effects/Experimental Photography

    I am really looking forward to being an active member of this forum, learning and enjoying other photographer's work and insight.
