Well, I just own two auto focus lenses...rest are all manual including some nikons from old days. I have few M lenses and enjoy using them all. This one I shot yesterday early morning(not early enough, missed the magic moment) with M 28mm f3.5 lens. Its about 345 panorama...19 vertical shots, stiched in CS3.... ISO 200...f16...1/2 second exposer.

M 28mm F/3.5 reversed on extension tubes.

Just a test for a new diffuser modification.

Glad I found this thread. Some amazing photos and great inspiration to put my "new" Ms onto my K-x and give them a walkabout. Used to use an SLR 25+ years ago with a 50mm as my main lens. With P&S got addicted to zooms but there is something about a Prime that makes you work more for the picture that is attractive in an odd way.

Amazing shot - did you use a macro rail for this one? I imagine it's very tricky to nail focus like this with a reversed lens.

Nope, handheld as always.

Its a block of metal molded into a fine piece of imaging equipment, not some plastic "maybe fantastic"

I felt bad even trying to compare the M 135mm vs. the F 135mm
(not saying its bad.... its just not up to par with the F/FA)
+1 for the FA-135-2.8-is-awesome sentiment. It's superb.

Wow, you must have really steady hands. That's a great shot. Makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. I love the reflections in the eyes.

Yeatz, my little guy saw this and moved away from the screen saying "I don't like that alien." Well done, love it!

Maybe I do, maybe I don't.... I really don't know
Thanks for the compliment, glad you liked it!

Why do people need to post huge sharp photos of spiders... why? I had both the desire to close the page and stare at its eyes. Cracking shot.

I will be posting my own M series photos soon. Just waiting for one i like enough.
