    Re: Polarisation Filter

    Which 150mm lens? That would help of figure out which size polarizer filter to get. Only other suggestion would be also to use a lens hood.

    Re: Expired Certificate Error

    The certificate expired last year

    Which left us all in tears

    Now all is well; let's buy and sell

    And shoot film and chat while all is swell.

    Yes.

    Yes, I always use a dark cloth to focus on ground glass. Not sure what you mean by a “real” dark cloth though. Mine make it dark so they should be considered real.

    Iíve only used a 5.6 and itís bright. Quite a bit brighter than when it is stopped down to f/8. The downside is that itís big and heavy.

    The slow speed escarpment is either defective or has been replaced incorrectly.
