Some old shots with my Fuji E510 from the Aviation Museum in Krakow, well worth a visit, but go in the summer. When I took these photos in February 2005 the temperature was about -19c and got colder at night Shocked

The Spitfire is like a jewel in amongst that lot.

The soviet stuff is outside in the snow and the Spitfire inside warm nice and polished. Ok, maybe is has more historical value. Rolling Eyes

Now we know why the grease in soviet lenses doesn't get stiff

That's wrong, I just bought me an brand new ZENIT BIOTAR T* 58mm f/2 M42 lens with an stiff focus ring! I friend of mine, who has an camera repair shop said to me, the they're using a mixture of silicon and machine oil for lubrication!


He fixed that problem for me, and now the focus ring turns smooth and buttery!
