    I needed something lighter than my Fuji x10 or X100, so I got a Lumix LX7. It'll be here on Wednesday.

    Anyone else got one?

    Terrific image Godfrey! I haven't seen many images shot with an SWC....I will have to start looking for them. How do you focus this camera?

    Thanks Gary!

    The Biogon 38 on 6x6 has so much dof you just set it by scale for most pictorial work. If you need precision for some work or close ups (it focuses down to 12"), you use a ground glass back and viewfinder, then replace that with the film magazine.

    It's a somewhat funky specialist camera that is amazingly versatile.

    I have thought about adding a 43mm lens to my Mamiya 7II kit...which would be the closest I can come to the SWC FOV, without actually buying an SWC.

    Some very good work with the SWC here:

    indeed!

    The SWC lens is just stunning, and it can be put to making some just amazing photos. As I said before, this was my "unobtainable object of equipment desire" for 35 years before I owned my first one.

    Now I'm going to put a lot of energy into calibrating my vision to see the world as I know it can. :-)
