Go back to glass

In the UK we have car boot sales and in the USA yard sales?. Go and find old glass lens at silly prices .The fun and often results can be fantastic and of course mainly manual settings keeps you more in control. Beware of dust if using long telephoto lenses.

I'm not allowed to car boot sales anymore by order of my better half, because I keep bringing stuff back.
