Really? No thread for this plastic fantastic bargain? I'll start it off with the lovely and talented Anika:

The thread you're looking for is the Fantastic Fifty lens club.

Why is that a lens club instead of a sample photos thread? Anyhow, thanks!

It's just a name for a thread about sample photos from specific lens models or types, as you have probably already found.

I never did understand why we have both "Lens Sample Photo Archive" and "Lens Clubs" boards here... I always assumed the clear separation meant there was some subtle difference that I'm just not getting.

Scintilla the lens club is in no order if you go there to look at a photo from a certain lens you have to look at every post on every page to find the lens . this is just a fast index to get to the lens you want to look at .

When you put it that way, maybe a better way of asking would be: what do the lens clubs provide that the lens sample photo archive doesn't?

The Lens Clubs were supposed to be more generic - DA Zooms, FA Limiteds, DA Limiteds, Tamrons, Sigmas, Tokina AT-X... then some more specialized ones came up, like the 50 f/1.2 club, the Bokeh club... also for different lenses. Only more recently - I think - have we had clubs specific to just one lens, maybe it was the Plastic Fantastic 35 2.4 that started it all? And the 18-135, Fantastic Fifty and 16-85 followed? Those could, IMHO, be moved to this section of the forums.

The 15mm Limited controls my mind thread has been around as lomg as I can remember. Those weak minded fools. It's just an old Jedi mind trick...

Oh yeah, how could I forget that one So that is the original single lens club.

Lens clubs usually get more activity than these lens sample threads though, sadly...

I picked up this lens intending to just use it until i could afford a DA* 55mm 1.4, but I may just stick with this one. I'm really liking its character.
