I have shot my first roll of slide! :heart: If you don't feel like reading first imressions, the questions are at the bottom. DigiRebel was used as the lightmeter, and then the "actual" shot was taken. It looked funny. I am very impressed with the pictures. After running through them on my friend's projector, I've noticed 2 things: 1) the bokeh is much better on my soviet helios 58/2 than on the Canon's 50/1.8 It's "creamy" for some reason... and is much more pleasureable to look at. 2) The shutter on zenit doesn't expose the end of the frame.:er: Looks like the first curtain just stops a few millimeters short, thus not exposing the slides. Which means that I'll be getting an Praktica... and I also want the lenses for the dreamy bokeh... Jena... Tessar... Pancolar... Sonnar... Pancolar... Flektogon... Sexy names... From what I've seen on ebay, in good condition the lenses go for less than 200$... some less than a 100... What should I look out for? I do not need any long telephotos for film... I think: This is my ideal wishlist: Practica camera 50/2.8 Jena Tessar 50/1.4 Jena Pancolar 35mm 20mm 85mm MAYBE a 135 mm sonnar... What should I look at? I've seen some aluminum 40 year old white lenses on ebay. Are they still good, or would you prefer the black, recent ones? How much would the above list cost at "average" prices?
