Old Manual Focus Prime Lens
Challenge has finished
Over the last 30 years, photographers have become used to a variety of convenience features such as wide-open auto exposure, auto focus, and zoom lenses. Unfortunately, these features cost us depth-of-focus preview, precision and robustness of physical construction, and the superior IQ of prime lenses. This challenge is for photos created combining the best of both worlds: modern digital image capture and processing with an old, high-quality, manual-focus, prime lens.

Roses with a rose in waiting shot in local Botanical Gardens. Shot with Pentax M 50mm f1.7. This lens was purchased in 1982 along with my ME Super. Both still work great. Aperture was f2.8 for this shot (I think).
