As another planned vacation is approaching as usual i got prepared to post on this forum. Even though this website is a valuable information source for me i am not actively posting other than consulting regarding future vacation plans :-/  


Probably this is due to the fact that being a vacation "scuba diver- u/w photographer" i am having a busy life during my long surface intervals. 


Anyway, while i was being prepared to make a new post regarding my planned short vacation in May i just have seen this post from year 2013.


Following the valuable information i received in this forum i stayed in Moyo island and had perfect time.


I thought that even though a considerable time has passed since above messages were posted,  i could also provide some feedback for whomever a stay in this wonderful island might be interesting in the future.


The stay in the island was a perfect combination of staying in an untouched jungle with the comfort of an upscale resort.


As also mentioned in the above posts we were waken up by the sound of breaking waves and monkeys jumping on the roof of our tent  early in the morning.


Wild deers were frequent visitors of the resort. At night time we could hear the wild boars walking around our tents.


In low tide the dorsal fins of blacktip sharks patrolling infront of the resort were visible from our room.(tent)


Food, SPA and all other services in the resort were in upscale level.


Diving activities were organised privately.


We made majority of the dives in the house reef right in front of the resort.(when the below photos were shot)


The night diving and night snorkelling in the house reef were stunning.



1. Monkeys on top of our tent

I own different Meyer Gorlitz lenses (Trioplans 50, 100, Primoplan...) and I can say that it is best to get some documentation before buying as there are different mounts (M42, Exacta...) and, at least in the special case of the 100mm, yield different results. Things to take into account are: they are only "fun" wide open, lose infinite focus on Nikons (mount flange distance) and are not very macro by themselves...


One example:




Thanks for the info. With further investigation (as you also wrote) i understood that the flange to sensor distance in Nikons cause loose infinite focus when other brands lenses are used.  :-/ I like the bokeh when these lenses are used wide open. May be not very sharp even in focus. However they have a very specific effect. Differs from the bokeh of 100mm f/2.8 VR shot wide open for instance. In flickr there are many examples.
