    Re: A Little Bird Told Me... (Kodak E100 news)

    Great! Now I'll just have to find something to shoot with it.

    Been carrying around a roll of E100 in 35mm for over a year without exposing it. Just haven't seen anything that I wanted to use it...

  25. Re: Thoughts About Nikkor SW 75mm F4.5 on Linhof Master Technika?
