I agree with Scott B. That SV102BV is gorgeous (even if it isn't Stardust Blue )! Since you got to post two pics of your SV102 LOMO, here's another pic of mine:

Thanks all. I was lucky to find this little treasure and it has proven itself to be a great performer.

PS: I have to admit that I really like the Stardust Blue. It really stands out.

Yep. Unfortunately, I've yet to take a really good picture that does justice to the Stardust Blue finish. It's really a little bit darker than the photo above portrays, and it's got lots of sparkled highlights that look really pretty in the light. Of course none of that really matters in the dark, lol.

Yeah, that's a pretty good representation, Scott. You've got to get the lighting just right to bring out the "stardust" highlights in a photo.

And here is my SW100ED (w/ Rigel Quikfinder) and WO ZS66SD on the T-Rex. Kind of pushing the limits of "grab-and-go"

Clear Skies,
Brian

Hi probably posted this one om here already so I apologise now if I have, it's an old Bresser 120 mm Pulsar playing host to my even older Prinz Optics 550 now with a Carton lens fitted, sorry for the odd angle and no I hadn't been drinking
