    Temptation for Guy - Sinar Hy6 System

    Guy,

    I was thinking to post a little temptation for you and for the weekend.



    Best regards,
    Thierry

    Yes, Billy, with the exception of the TS. And I have some more lenses at home.

    Nice kit... glad to see someone has more lenses than I do.

    It's helpful to see the size of the lenses
    relative to the 80mm mounted on the camera.
    Left to right:
    50mm F2.8, 120mm F4 macro, 40mm F3.5, 55mm tilt/shift, 300mm F4, 110mm F2, 250mm F5.6 & 180mm F2.8

    Re: Temptation for Guy - Sinar Hy6 System

    Yes it is... I just took delivery of the 55 TS yesterday (unfortunately damaged in transit from Hong Kong) and was a bit surprised at how large it is. BTW, if anyone can recommend a Rollei repair shop in the States please let me know.

    Thierry,

    How do you find manual focusing with your prism finder. Are you using a magnifier of any sort or find it unnecessary...

    David,

    I find it very easy with the focus indicator in the viewfinder, and no particular problem.

    I find the view through the focusing screen of the Hy6/AFi the clearest ever without any aides.

    As do I when using the WLF... depending on the lens, it makes precise manual focusing a breeze. Just was wondering about the view thru the prism finder and Thierry has answered that question.

    Hi David,
    may I ask how much you paid for the 55PCS?
    Also,what was damaged?
    I've got one myself from the UK and arrived with no damage.
    I'm also waiting for a 2/110 that I got on eBay from the US.
    Cheers,
    Willem.

    Hi, Willem,

    May I ask you the same question? I am looking for a 55 PCS, once my wallet cools off from all the recent photography purchases...

    Thanks so much.

    Best regards,
    Brad

    P.S. Your little care package arrived snug as a bug in a rug. Thank you, the lens looks great!

    Re: Temptation for Guy - Sinar Hy6 System

    Thierry,

    Is there a remote shutter release that works with the Hy6? One person I spoke with said that the Rollei RC-120 doesn't work with the Hy6... Can you confirm?

    Mine is on its way. Thank you for all your help--who knows what I'd be shooting if not for all the support you've provided.

    Thanks, Thierry,
    Brad

    The 6008 camera body had a threaded cable release socket adjacent to the hotshoe.
    Why did it have to disappear on the Hy6/AFi?

    I imagine the PocketWizard folks will eventually have a cable to fire the Hy6/AFi remotely.

    Re: Temptation for Guy - Sinar Hy6 System

    Here's a quick pic of the damaged lens. It appears that the lens was dropped breaking the spring and scuffing the lens barrel. Judging by the box, which was not damaged at all, I would speculate that whoever opened the box at customs and inspected the lens dropped it. I have pics of the lens prior to shipment and it was in perfect condition. It was also well protected in the packaging. For those interested in this lens note that it's a bit awkward to mount on the Hy6. The handle needs to be adjusted prior to mounting or the springs hit the handle. No big deal, just something to be aware of. Those interested in cost please contact me offline.

    Willem,

    I did not know that it was you bidding on the 110/2. I have this lens and like it so much I thought I'd pick up a spare. I put in a snipe bid that was quite a bit higher than the final price. Fortunately, as it turns out, I forgot that I had changed my password on ebay (after someone hijacked my account) but forgot to change it on the snipe site, so my bid was never placed. Now that I know it's you that got the lens, I feel much better (I think you stole it at that price ).

    Dear Brad,

    There is a release cable planed for the Hy6, but I have no ETA at this time.
    And yes, from my knowledge, the old Rollei RC-120 does not work on the Hy6.

    Thanks for your kind words.

    Best regards,
    Thierry

    Ouch! Hurts to see that broken 55! Btw - the 55mm works well with extension tubes, 1.4x or a combination of both. It's a nice lens to have.

    Wow, it looks like at least three of us were eyeing that lens... I'm glad we didn't end up clashing and costing one another more money though. A friend put me in touch with someone locally who is selling his. Now all three of us have one but we didn't have to fight each other to get them.

    Re: Temptation for Guy - Sinar Hy6 System

    Hi Guys,
    I think it is funny that we were all bidding on the 110/2 on eBay.
    I had my snipe set at $3100.
    BTW I'm selling the hood,filter and cap.(Helioplan+Contax) See the eBay listing.
    I paid a bloody fortune for my 55PCS.
    2500 GBP, however it was LNIB.
    Cheers,
    Willem.

    Local Sinar rep showed me 2nd generation eMotion75LV.
    Definite improvement in the display, now 2.5" TFT.
    Revolving adapter works nice, twist at will.
    50mm AFD is surprisingly compact.
    Will have the kit with 45 prism for two/three days next week.

    Re: Temptation for Guy - Sinar Hy6 System

    Billy,
    Are you sure it's TFT... I asked my dealer this question exactly and he told me OLED. Looks like there's a minor bit of confusion on this subject, but it's good news to hear of the improvement. Looking forward to that revolving adapter as I always get a bit nervous when detaching and rotating mine.

    Let Thierry clarify for sure, but it's my understanding:
    1st Generation e75LV = 2.2" OLED
    2nd Generation e75LV = 2.5" TFT

    Absolutely right.

    Same for e75 (non-LV version).
