Hello from Student in Köln


Upgraded my EOS 60D to an A7. Loving the focus peaking on it. Introduced to vintage lenses, gotta love the price-performance ratio. Who needs AF anyways lol. Registered to look for the legendary 8-Element 50mm 1.4 Takumar.

Welcome! Remember to get a hood for that old Tak. The collapsible rubber ones are OK. The old glass tends to flare and lacks modern coatings, the hood will help your contrast.

Have fun!
