Camera: Fujifilm X-A10 with Vivitar 70-150mm f3.8 close focusing auto zoom lens using Fotodiox Pro FD-FX adapter.
This manual focus lens is from 1976 and is in excellent condition inside and out. Some of its most impressive features are the 15 elements in 10 groups, f3.8 to f22 aperture range, multicoated lens surfaces, and 16 inches minimum focusing distance at close focusing setting.
Mount Canon FD breech mount
This compact lens impresses with its ease of use and remarkable clarity and contrast. It’s relatively fast at f3.8. With the proper adapter for hybrid digital photography, it’s a clear winner.

Our front yard azalea has “popped”! Big time!
There’s still plenty of unopened buds – looks like it will be a banner year for our azaleas.
Thanks for stopping by!

Escape the hustle of the big city – Sankei-en is Yokohama’s beautiful gem.
Soon the sakura and azalea will bloom. Photographers will come. School children and couples. Families love Sankei-en.
It was a pleasant ride to Sankei-en from our house so we went often.
Admission – 100 yen. All smiles.
Sakura from long ago. Avenue D in Naka-ku, Honmoku. 1979
Spring returns to Sankei-en soon. The blossoms will be everywhere. Come to this spot and enjoy!
