Does the heliar need an adapter on the r2a? Is it easy to switch from a screwmount lens with adapter then switch to m mount? =)

bQw Featured By Owner May 12, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Yeah it's an LTM lens so you need an LTM->M adapter. Just keep the adapter on the lens and switching lenses is fine. :)

None taken. Some people are more into eye candy or photos that are more "obvious"...like Michael Bay films. I already understand that and I don't "target" my images there. Honestly, with cheap digital P&S cameras and a couple of Photoshop plug-ins, eye candy isn't that difficult to churn out. Then there are those that try and be "conceptual" but end up with shots takem a thousand times by others who wanted to be "conceptual" or "artistic", too. LOL

So I target me, shoot what I like, and hope that that renders something different. And different isn't supposed to appeal to everyone, right? ;)

To achieve great you have to be able to include both in one.
Maybe my unfimiliarity with the "case" behind this photo is the reason why I don't/can't see anything here.
