    Re: post "Something Dead"

    Ha, you should also use this one to begin a "Thanksgiving" thread.:) Definitely one for me to study, considering my newfound interest in Zone III!

    Re: Going Long on 5x7

    I'll definitely be interested in your thought process here, especially IIRC you work with a hybrid workflow. After all, you could crop a 5x7 negative shot with your 300 to the equivalent 500mm focal...
