G'day Walter, great to hear from you, and I hope you're back to full strength. I've tried to contact you previously, without success. Yes, I agree about using a longer lens, but for me at the moment it's a matter of economics. I have the 135 El Nikkor I got from you, which is great for 6x9s which I have a lot of, but too long for 6x6 I feel, hence my thought about an 80 which I've previously had. I must admit that I was nearly persuaded to get a 105 but I think I'd feel guilty about having too many lenses of close focal length. But that's me! Hope all is well with you and look forward to keeping in touch.
