The A Club

Since we have the Takumar, K and M clubs I figured we should have one for the As as well.

A 50mm F1.7

Cheers!

A 50 2, a 50 1.7

Good job, Jake! These 'club' threads really seem to get people to dust off their
lenses, get out there and use them.

Those are some great shots there. Very impressive.

Oh, yes! Although my only A lens is the 28, I love it dearly.
Some more atmospheric rather than show-off how sharp and so on it is...

I know! I love that image because of that. I think I should title that shot
"love in the canopy".

A Club

Way to go Jake!

I was going to start an A thread but you beat me to it. I only have one A series lens and although I like it a lot I don't use it much. The A 100mm f/2.8 macro rides tomorrow! Close up and personal with any flower or bug that will sit still. Stay tuned.

Cheers,

I have a few As. Here is a night market shoot around 8:30 in Toronto a few weeks back.

Same set here (A28, A50 and A70-210)
Like them all, but my M28 is better than the A-version I have.

I only have one A lens and it is the fairly common f/2 50mm. I absolutely love using this lens even though it is not as desireable as it's faster 50mm brothers. Here are my contributions:
