    Re: Images from my June 2022 Road Trip

    If I didn't take a pic of this sign, did I really travel Route 66?? :)

    I liked the sun position and the 40mm lens+R25 filter did well here not flaring much.

    Re: Nikkor-SW 75mm f / 4.5 on Chamonix 45F2

    75mm will work easily on the Chamonix. I have used 47 and 58mm on one. Focus should be easy. I assume you are using a dark cloth. The best answer will be your own with some usage of the lens.
