    The last genuine Nikon F series camera I used, and still the best if Japanese optics are your thing DSCN2824.JPG

    Love the F3. I"ve only had one since about March (Etsy find) and love it!

    Indeed Joe, you'll notice on the image a Nikkor 35mm f2.8 shift lens, I can highly recommend this lens to you, I found it so useful in many situations, not least for correcting verticals?

    I've been considering a 35mm f2. I also really like the Voitlander 40mm f2. Very compact, sharp and looks wonderful.

    The 40mm is a beautiful focal length Joe, I used to have a 40mm Summicron on a Leica CL I had and found it very useable. I have also always admired H. Cartier-Bressons minimalist approach to photography, the one camera one lens principle, I do believe that sometimes we are over-geared in our approach.

    Agreed. I own only two lenses for my two Nikon slrs, 28mm & 50mm. Keeping it simple.

    I know Joe, it's so tempting, photographic equipment is a bit like that, I'm a bit the same with watches but I have now given my JLC Reverso to our Daughter so I just have a Submariner which I bought last year, and that feels OK

    Wouldn't you know it, just hours after our conversation above, I grabbed a 40mm on ebay. Three lenses, all I need is three lenses....

    Which 40mm did you get Joe? and can I ask a question, I wish to buy a neg/ slide scanner, I know a flatbed will handle various formats but my requirement is only for 35mm slides and negs. The one here looked quite good

    Looks good Joe, and thank you for the info re scanners, it could take me a while to get around to it. I have a 24mm and 72mm Voigtlander M lenses which are OK, but I guess I am spoilt with Leica M lenses and also I like the German effect of a lens compared to the Japanese effect. Interestingly, I recently bought a Carl Zeiss Sonnar 35mm f2.8 lens for my a7Rll and was a little disappointed to find that it was Zeiss Japan, but having used it, I quite like it. I could bore you to tears with German V Japan optics but I won't- Regards
