Dang, this lens is heavy. It seems to pull on the body of the FM3a as if it’s trying to escape using gravity as a weapon and 900g as ammunition. But little does it know that although the FM3A is light in comparison (about 600g) it too is built like a nuclear bunker.

UK photographer, shooting on film because I’m drawn to the pace and tangibility. Shoot all formats up to 8x10, mainly in B&W and enlarge in the darkroom. Landscape and documentary photography are what I generally pursue but always like to experiment with different subjects, films and processes.
