    What's Your Favourite Camera (and lens combo optional) of all time?

    Reading Amin's thread about 'What gear do you regret selling?' made me ask the question: 'What's your favourite camera of all time?' You don't have to have owned it but you must have used it. It could be a camera and a particular lens combo, as opposed to a camera with just a fixed lens...

    Video: Making of the Nokton 25mm f/0.95

    Just saw this a moment ago, a very interesting (IMO) video showing the making of the micro Four-Thirds Nokton f/0.95. Personally, I was surprised to see so much manual labour, I thought Cosina production would be more automised (therefore allowing them to produce lenses cheaper). Enjoy...
