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.

This photo is taken using my very favorite lens for the moment I own. It's Nikon Nikkor-S Auto 50mm f/1.4 from 1959. It is very hard to focus, but eventually being slightly out of focus became my signature style for past few month.
