Jeff, wow, what great helpful information! I too am going to print it so I can try that exercise and the green button (haven't touched it yet on my Kx). Thanks!

I'm in of course. I'll decide on the lens tomorrow. Not that many left to choose from. the Super-Tak is still broken (needs cleaning and some sort of focus repair). I could do the M50/1.7 or M50/2 but I did a 50mm in January. I think I'm going to go with AF for a change. DAL 50-200 (kit lens) will be it for this month.

Sorry to hear your out for April pdophoto.
As for me, last month was fun. I want to thank all the people who took the time to comment on my pictures! They were very much appreciated! I also got to like my DA70 a bit better.
I too can't decide what lens to use for April. I had thought about using the 10-17 fisheye but might be too much of a challenge! Besides all this talk of manual focus made me think of using perhaps a 35mm (LBA disclosure I have 3 different kinds) or M100 2.8.

Hey, go for it with the 10-17! That would be an easy month for me. I love fisheye lenses.

Well, Voytec got me thinkin'.

I was going to go with 50mm F1.7, but just did a 50mm month, so, if no objections, and it isn't April yet, I'll bolt a F70-210 zoom F/1:4-5.6 on the old K-x (had it over a year now), and run it in manual mode for the hell of it. It'll be like a month off from 50mm anyway!

Cheers all and good luck! Paddy

It was really interesting to see your documentary of those first days post quake. I still have to get back to yours and other albums to catch the latest additions. In the first Single in challenges, September and November, there were fisheye participants who survived the experience quite nicely so don't rule it out.

Looking forward to following your month no matter what you chose!

I didn't join September, but I did on November and I remember those fisheyes. One of them was Jools, if I got it right, the other one was Jimbow007. And after seeing what they did with it, I have put it on my wanted list.

Thanks for the advice, folks. Looks like it's the 10-17 Fisheye for me then!

I think I'm gonna use my (awesomely pink) DA 35mm that I got with my (awesomely pink) K-r. Its a bit wide for me but I guess the point is to get creative right?
