    Gary,

    I saw that you are looking for some Canon stuff for your new F1.

    My sister in law asked me to sell her F1 kit … camera, 50/1.4, 70-210 and something else wide but I can't remember.

    The stuff looks like it was never used. I tried the 70-210/4 on my A7R when a friend came by with the proper FD to E adapter … and was stunned by the results!


    If you have any interest, let me know what you'd be willing to pay.

  2. I am interested in how you made out with mounting a Hasselblad 120mm macro on the D800 or similar Nikon. I would like to do the same thing, if you think it is worth it. Thanks. Michael

    Hi Gary. Yes, I'm a pretty dedicated film guy, but not a purist . I must admit I'm tempted by the CFV-16. Very expensive, though.
