More 800ASA RAW experiments... but, also, a fond look at the Nikon F3 and its detachable viewfinder prism... This camera's built like a tank, - it has a lot in common with my beautiful, beautiful Olympus E-1 in that respect (both cameras have a viewfinder shutter for astronomy)-- but this tank's one you want to bury in a sandpit, so you can dig it up again and pretend you're an Egyptologist, discovering the secrets of Hiram for the first time... It actually feels like a really, really heavy Corgi vehicle (toy car, not dog) and you almost feel the more you throw it down stairs, the better it gets... More on this later... Oh, and, yes, that is an 50mm f1.4...
