645 LBA that is. :oops: :(

I have just received a rather immaculate, used SMC FA 645 f4 120mm macro prime all the way from the land of the rising sun :D and I've heard, from SRS that my FA 75mm f2.8 should be here in a few days :thumb:

Now I just need to stop myself looking at wide angle lenses for a few weeks........
No images as yet but I'll try and post something up at the weekend.

Oh dear, it's started already

Some events have occurred, in our lives, recently that have resulted in us rethinking our priorities. Belinda really supports the whole studio, change of career thing.
So I have a bit of a free hand to spend a bit of the kids inheritance. :D :D :D

Good for you, Ralph, and your good lady. I went self-employed eight years ago and have never regretted it.

Thanks for the good wishes. It will take a few months before the studio is ready. I am still working 3 days per week on my existing contract and so I shall keep that going as a 'buffer' until the millions start rolling in. :D :wink:
