|Hello, I'm Martin and I've been into photography for quite a while. It started when I was working at the predecessor to Champion Photochemicals and used their Promicrol and Amfix with my first SLR, a Topcon Unirex although I now use Minoltas: a Dynax and an X500 with a couple more awaiting repair. I've rescued a very rudimentary darkroom with an Opemus 6 Color and a Minolta 50mm f2.8. I Stopped about 20 years ago and recently restarted.
As this forum is about lenses, I got with my X500 a not frequently seen Hanimex 35-70mm f2.5-3.5 zoom. I think it's the same lens more frequently seen under the Soligor or Access brands and may have been originally made by Komura. It's got a very long helicoid, which enables it to have a macro capability of 1:2.7.
