    Thanks!

    Classic IR look, very good.

    With my SD1M and SD14 Sigma DSLRs, IR is very easy - just pop out the dust cover (which is also IR blocking filter) with the thumbnail!

    Those Panasonic-Leica lenses are really good. I've had two examples of their 45mm Macro-Elmarit f/2.8 which were both excellent!

    Nice. Used to drive by there, long ago - almost 60 yrs ago when Monty was still in residence.

    Never actually been there though.

    What about that wire - any intentions of cloning it out?

    A bit late to the thread . .

    D50 was my first DSLR, which I purchased (body only) specifically for watch shots. I chose the Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 G macro to go with it and found that focal length to be about right for the...

    Very Nice!

    The cathedral shot was a bit nostalgic 'cuz I used to live quite close to Lincoln cathedral. Where is the one in your shot?

    Like the composition in the 'park' shot, too.

    A caveat

    If you check one out, be prepared for glacial editing in Sigma's Photo Pro, assuming that you'll shoot raw. I mean seriously slow - especially on older computers. So bad on mine that I sold my DP2M...

    . . . did you shoot raw? If so, any chance of a copy to play with?

    New toys arrived yesterday which will, of course, also fit in the bag.

    Panasonic GH1 m43 + Leica Elmarit 45mm is pretty awesome

    +1 for the Panny. I've used the Panasonic GH1 micro four-thirds with the Leica Elmarit 45mm macro lens (not cheap ~$4-500 bucks used, on eBay).
