SMC-A 50mm/f1.7
Lens: SMC-A 50mm/f1.7 Camera: K20D 
Posted By: newmikey, 07-26-2010, 02:15 AM

Inspired by the traveling "nifty fifty" which is being put to such great use in Norway nowadays, I decided to get my own fifty which has been sitting on a shelf and give it some exercise:

I enjoyed it and it brings back the feeling I had handling the K1000 so many years ago. Thanks for making me realize that newer is not always better, only different!

Great series, and I love the last shot! The first is also nice, but there seems to be some strange distortion/CA in the OOF areas in the background.

I love this lens.

Great colours, I really like the first shot and the shot with the bee on the white flowers.
