The doc has told me that I'm going blind and I'm not taking the news well at all.
Very sorry to hear such bad news. I don't know what to say... I hope ... well... I hope there's still some hope I guess...

Oh my goodness, incredibly hard news to hear. Hopefully the transition can be slowed for as long as possible.
Wonderful month of photos and so clear and bright photos, the horse photo was my favourite

So, my take on the 28mm f3.5 Super Takumar. It's a good lens. I like the sharpness and the colors. If you need want a 28mm and can get one for a good price, (I got mine for $4) I'd say the Super Tak is a good choice. One thing I didn't care for is the Auto/Manual switch. The switch needs to be in manual for focusing and in auto to stop down the lens. It's easy to forget the switch and then the image is overexposed. I much prefer my Komine made Vivitar 28mm f2 close focusing if I'm using a wide lens. No fiddling with switching Manual/Auto, It's a close focusing lens, and at f2 it's a bunch faster for low light. The Vivitar (if you can find one) runs about $120. The Super Tak runs about $60 but I much prefer the Vivitar. This month's SIC images are posted so here's a few that didn't make into the challenge.

Oh! Mate, thatís really hard news. just .... man. Really sorry to hear. Good idea to make the most of things now, I guess, but a hard thing to do.

I'm sorry to have to read this and feel worse that you are struggling with the news...

I hope you have a strong support network that you can work with through this massive change to your life and cannot imagine your mindframe after receiving that kind of diagnosis...
