    There, there, you can shoot architecture with your SG
    if you want. Limited movements and I'd prefer a Sinar,

    OTOH, I don't exactly consider city streets to be the
    field; more like out and about when hiking with a Wista,
    which btw was once sold through Picker and thus my Wista
    has a Zone VI brand on the front :)

  3. No reason why not....I'd build it into a film holder....Put it in just to
    take a reading, and then substitute it for the real film holder.....

    my fave when working w a new model in a bikini was saying "Oh God, I have
    the exact same outfit! I am SO glad I didn't wear it today!"

    I'm always amazed that so many photographers bought a Pentax Spotmatic
    at sometime in their life. 25 years ago I met a man who'd bought 2 and
    basically gone to work on them with a hacksaw - he ended up with a
    full-frame stereo camera with interchangeable lenses.

    Voightlander still uses the Pentax screw-mount lenses ;>)

    Yes, but Voightlander did not always use Pentax M42. The camera is made in
    the Far East and was designed to accommodate all those used M42 lenses that
    are still out there.

    The ironic thing is that the camera body says "Voightlander Germany" even
    though it is Japanese!

    I believe that Rollei may be doing the same thing--their Vario Apogon lenses
    on their digital cameras say "Germany," even though the cameras are rebadged
    Ricohs, made on the other side of the Pacific.

    Any 'A' Pentax lens will work on the *ist D and *ist DS just fine. F, FA,
    FAJ, DA, etc. ditto. Only the 'non-A' K and M lenses provide problems. Any
    of the various reviews of the *ist digitals should explain all this.

    Just such devices do exist. A Horseman for 6x9 (with 4x5 adapter), a Sinar,
    a Sekonic, probably others. You can get an attachment for Sekonic and
    Minolta meters to spot meter off the GG too.

    Dear Ms. Crowder:
    Please tell us why you are unable to start your own thread to ask this
    question? You are obviously capable of forging the title of my OP in order
    to change the subject so why couldn't you just start your own thread? PLONK!
