Going through the archives I stumbled on this tune, which I wrote ages ago and still like:

I also decided to use up some of my Polypan film, loaded into a Fujica ST605, shooting with a Chinon 55mm f/1.4. Because I have a commitment to messing about I stuck a vaseline-smeared filter on the front of the lens, although as it turned out I used too little vaseline to make much difference.

The ST605 is a generic mid-70s M42 body, the lens was a popular third-party f/1.4 lens of the period. Ergonomically the body draws heavily from the Pentax Spotmatic.
