I really miss salt water; I grew up on the shores of Boundary Bay on the Wet (sic) coast of Canada. My wife's lungs required us to move to a dryer climate, hence 3,800 ft above sea level in the Rocky Mountains.

I'm a native landlubber, having grown up in Iowa, then spent many years on the plains of Texas. Now in coastal SoCal, I'm afforded all kinds of new and different photo ops! But there's something to be said about that Rocky Mountain High

Ahh I see you're making this lovely lens shine!


How you find it, I reckon it has been a few months, right?

I had such low expectations for this lens. After seeing some nice results you were getting, I took a chance on one here in the Marketplace. (at a great price, I might add!) What a pleasant surprise! Oh, it's a keeper

Very glad you're enjoying it. It is quite a sleeper. I reckon no one expects much from a 28mm without close focus or macro capabilities; but this little guy does his job and does it extremely well.

Yes, M28/2.8 is handy wide angle. On APSC I preferred 35mm, but on FF 28 feels better.

It's my favorite FL on aps-c - so versatile. I do a lot of walkaround shooting, and prefer to carry just one lens most of the time. The 28 can do it all

Another random shot from the same day as my previous post - M28/2.8 on *ist D:

On APS-C 28mm works out to the equivalent FOV as 36 on full 35 mm frame. On my film cameras a 3 lens kit for me was M 28/3.5, K 55/1.8, M 135/3.5

With the huge improvements in zoom lenses over the years, the only "normal" lens I have is the Takumar 55/1.8. The only other single focal lengths are the FA 100/28 macro and the M 4005.6. In parks when I might get damp unexpectedly I mount the DA*16-50/2.8. For scenic flexibility I prefer the DA 12-24/4. I accompany either with the trust DA 55-300 for a light, flexible kit. When I am unsure of what I want, I wear my LowePro with everything in it.

28mm on APS-C gives the same field of view as a 42mm lens would on FF. 24mm on APS-C gives the same field of view as a 36mm lens would on FF.

Everybody's kit, in those days before competent zooms that needed a wheelbarrow, not a Lowepro. My parents' Spotmatic had the three Takumar equivalents, admittedly the Tak 135 was bigger and heavier than the M135/3.5.
