    Hi!

    I use a dome F2 with my MT.
    (I use the same bag for all my cameras & swap them out)
    It will also accommodate two lenses on boards.

    Hi Randy

    Yes, I've soured on using expired film. Not worth it, especially when you get strange artifacts etc.

    Re: Nikkor 90 F8 iris Diaphragm questions

    189391Hi Jim,

    Looks like you solved the question.
    With the elements attached, the iris is open.
    As Neil said you can barely discern the iris.

    Thanks everyone for your help.
