Devious Journal Entry
New shot of marsh grass is from the 1000mm lens mentioned in the last entry. For my birthday I picked up a Sony A3000, mostly for use with old lenses, got a Zeiss Tessar 50mm f/2.8 and a Minolta MC 58mm f/1.4 to play with. The Minolta is real soft at f/1.4 but sharpens up nicely. Image of roses shows the dreamy look you get from this lens wide open.

New Lens Again
I have been neglecting this site, most of my pictures are going up on Flickr, wally626v, I just feel I can post more images there and try to limit this site to good images. Latest acquisition is a 1000mm f/8 extreme telephoto. A monster lens, big heavy and vibration prone. I had it out a couple of time and even on a tripod in light wind it would never settle down so I had to use high shutter speeds like it was handheld. I bought a gimbal mount for it and that really helps getting it on target. The lens also has a gun site built in.

More equipment. Just got in a Zeiss Jena 300mm f/4. No good pictures yet, this thing is a beast. Noticed it has 3/8th tripod not 1/4 inch like most newer equipment. Must wait on adaptor before I can use with monopod or tripod. Have a Helios 58mm f/2 on order. This is a Russian clone of the Zeiss Jena designs. Some are very good, some not, so i will have to wait and see but real cheap even compared to the Zeiss Jena lenses let alone compared to modern lenses. Pictures uploaded toady were using my Sony 16-105 on my Alpha 77. This is the lens I picked as a general walk around lens, works OK for that. Also I am on flicker now wally626v, posting
