  • Replied in Normal
    Yes I’m speculating. But aren’t you also speculating on positive reliability? That has not been demonstrated over time either. I will still get the lens, but this time from a brick and mortar shop ...
  • Replied in Normal
    Well, Fujifilm should put it in a camera bag and tote it around on a 4500km journey in Africa. Then we’ll find out? As an example, in propeller aircraft, things vibrate at the fundamental or ...
  • Replied in Normal
    Maybe it’s well designed enough for some. But not all. Just like Apple’s mouse with the charging port on the bottom. Hehe.
  • Replied in Normal
    Yes, I should have researched it more and not just assumed I would get a well designed product!
  • Thanks everyone! Already got credit on the return. Guess I’ll go in person to the store in the New Year.
  • Replied in GFX in KoOlina
    It’s a great location, really future proofed now. We had a legal snafu in the beginning but now things are good , especially since they’ve dropped the draconian inbound ban. We want to come back ...
  • Thanks. It was something audible, actually even after repacking if I tilted the box I could hear it from inside. Is that normal?
  • Replied in GFX in KoOlina
    Nice to see tourism returning. We have a condo in Ko’Olina at the Beach Villas , needless to say it’s been a negative return this year. Your pic and post brings hope! BTW the nice lagoons were ...
  • Created discussion thread GF 4/120 D.O.A.
    So my GF 4/120 arrived. Something was literally banging around inside the lens, I could see the inner element from the rear moving fore and aft actually. I attached it to the camera anyway, and it ...
  • Actually I don’t think anyone has ever seen any data that supports any view and it’s all simply subjective conjecture. But that’s just my opinion. In the meantime I’ll stick with my less ...
  • Jim that might be true in the U.S., but here there is an active Hasselblad Club and mailing list tracking serial #s, mostly to discuss issues. When I was considering the X1 camera the lead time ...
  • I’m not sure where you’re living but here in Tokyo all of the new Hasselblad kit is very popular and you have to wait to buy it. I eschewed Hasselblad, even selling my old V kit , and went ...
  • Replied in My Rig
    Maybe consider silk artificial flowers first for practice? That’s what I’m doing and it’s very helpful because of the fabric’s weave giving me an easy idea of the focal plane and depth of field. ...
  • Thanks for all the dialogue and answers folks. I ordered the native 120 today. That’s after I spent one hour trying to figure out a Techart Adapter and Sigma 150 APO macro. The Sigma didn’t seem ...
  • Replied in My Rig
    Hi Greg, Thanks much for taking the time to show us your setup! Looks pretty solid and convincing. If I were shooting from a geared head on a tripod I’d probably go that route. However I want to ...
  • Replied in Natura Morta
    Renders the texture and colors really nicely! I just bought a used Symmar 210 in Linhof colors for $65. Initially I wanted it for the shutter, but now I think I’ll try now to clean it up as it has ...
  • Thanks, but actually no worries about the snaps of the rig - I found a good visual description of it on Amazon Japan. It’s quite nice because it has a vertical slot on the front bracket on which I ...
  • Thanks. The Neewer long lens support looks like it will work out best for me. I wish they would provide a collar for this lens though. I’m going to make one for the 45mm extension tube but it’d be ...
  • Awesome. makes it much easier to arrange for  lens support! Thanks!
  • Created discussion thread GF 4/120 Macro(ish) focusing mechanism
    Hi, I can’t seem to find pictures of this lens extended when focusing. Is it fully internally focused? I’m aware that it has floating elements but do the dimensions change externally min. focus to ...
