I am ready to pay for one 95mm.
Will be a valuable material piece of memory....
Could you make one?
I got two and a half left hands....
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

I didn't know you wanted to keep it ;) I will see if we can make 95, would help if you have a 'doner' filter ring in 95mm,,,

I will be bringing a solar filter in 105mm width (for my 500mm lens).

Apart from the Fuji lenses I will also bring a number of Nikon mount lenses, available to share:
28/2 AI (chipped)
35/1.4 AI (chipped)
50/1.2 AIs
75-150/3.5 (chipped)
105/2.5 K (AI's and chipped)
Hartblei Super-rotator 45/3.5 (with chipped adapter)

I can also bring a Samyang 14/2.8 if anyone is interested in using it.
It is boxed in excellent conditions and is available for sale should anyone like/want it.

No. I would have to buy one on ebay. Do you bring the filter foil???

Thanks for the replies, guys!

Same as Simone I rather lean towards short to medium focal lengths, too.

Something like AF 20/ 35/ 85 (lighter and water proof) or MF 25/ 50/ 135 (more fun!).

I'll leave the stage for others when it comes to big wildlife lenses or lunar photography. ;)

Steam train and viaduct - Sounds like 6mm focal length ;)

That might be very interesting, but I wouldn't like to have it as my only option. One body with any 70-200 or 80-200, and another with your wide-angle of choice, that's my advice.

The transit will last for roughly 7.5 HOURS.

Sounds like a 7.5-hour "art" film is just begging to be made.   ;D ;D
