I just took my *istDL2 and a 50mm prime out for a wander in central Oxford. I must say, focusing it manually is a lot easier than I expected, at least with a fast MF prime. I've never really attempted street photography before, but quite pleased with how these came out, for a first go.

Nicely done, but those blokes might look more at home with me here in Tennessee--I'll have to check out their stories the next time I'm in the Bodleian.

Thanks! They do look like they woke up on the wrong side of the Atlantic don't they? Perhaps they're busking to try and work up a ticket home...

Both of these are quite heavily cropped, I think next time I'll take a longer lens, maybe my 90 or 135.

I think I'm going to enjoy learning this type of photography
