Today's otuing using Manual Focus lenses
Posted By: Voe, 05-24-2008, 07:47 AM

Today I went to Sandringham beach to take some nature shots. Today the weather was very nice, hopefully tomorrow will be the same.

It has been a while since the last time I used my Tokina 28mm lens so I decided to take it with me today.

RMC Tokina 28mm f/2.8

Some shots with my trusty Jupiter-37A.

And I used the Jupiter-9 on this one.

Hope you like them.

Some really nice shots -- do you use a Katzeye focussing screen? I love the backlit one of the berries.

A very pleasant series of shots. I love playing with shallow depth of field, and your pictures are right up my alley.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the comments

I use a $30USD split focusing screen that I bought from ebay. It is not Katzeye but it does just fine.
