I'll be looking for some Nikon manual focus primes. Would love to find a 24/2.8, 105/1.8 and/or 135/2.0. An FM3A would be nice as well. As I'll be bringing my FE2, I'll be stocking up on film as well. Local prices of film are outrageous, and bulk shipping from Amazon, Adorama or B&H is slow and I don't save that much due to shipping.

Make sure there are no molds inside the lens, HK is very humid and not a great place to find vintage lens if not stored properly.

Thanks, I will. Singapore is even more humid than Hong Kong, fungus is one of the first things we check for in a lens. tongue.gif

Hopefully there's a pair or two at a good price waiting for me!

I have 596 rectifiers.

 

I wondered how the Raytheon RK-60 rectifier compared to the mighty 596?

You referred me to wiwitubes some 18 months ago - owner was very helpful (like yourself) and promptly returned a series of emails.

All this talk of Karen Mok is enticing me to look for her albums when I'm there as well.

When I get the chance, I've got to learn more about the appreciation for this Glass.

 

Me too, I received one unexpectedly in trade a while ago and haven't really explored it's sound yet. Something about it's diminutive size forced it to the back of the drawer wink.gif

When I had those lenses my favorite was the 20/2.8, if you get a chance to compare it to the 24 you may feel the same. It's wider than the 24 and just as fast with a completely flat field.

That is the lens glued to my F3HP, I tried on D800E the result is amazing with one if the best bokeh but it is very hard to get it focus right. The DOF is so thin...
