    I use pencil marks on my Ebony - yes you can see them but they don't stand out and of course you can rub them off if you feel the need.

  9. Re: What small lightweight lens for 4x5 backpacking?

    Look for small aperture lenses - regardless of focal length.

    Fuji "A" series and Nikon "M" series lenses are well regarded, small and light - but they are longer focal lengths.

    Wow !

    It almost looks unreal, the way the mountain peaks tower over the village in the valley bottom. - but that's what some of the Alpine valleys look like.
