I am ready to pay for one 95mm.
Will be a valuable material piece of memory....
Could you make one?

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.

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
