What intriques me about lens comments... the way they cause me to think about lens-specific perspectives and scenarios I hadn't thought about before.

Then I consider how I might achieve the same result with something I already have. ( This isn't good for the economy, but it does gain respect for some older lenses. )

LBA is one thing. Taking interesting photos with old friends I already have is satisfying too.

I appreciate the challenge/suggestion to do it the "old way". Thanks y'all.

Great this works for you, it's important to strive to get the best from what you already have and kick LBA into touch for a while.

Your comment make me think of my feet... often the only alternative I have to fill the focal lengths in my lens coverage range.

When I read your post I assumed you had maybe three lenses. But you have 19 bodies and 27 lenses. Surely one of the combos you have can do the job?

19 bodies ??? yes, it is true. i checked the about me page.

i believe you can always take good pics if you know how to. camera and glass are just instruments that help to achieve your vision. buying another body or lens will not necessarily improve the quality. but then, majority of us have LBA and CBA
