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.

Lens' years of production: 1977-1984 This was a beautiful winter's afternoon wih the Sun starting to make its way down to the horizon but it had a wonderful glow. The lens is an oldie but goodie. Its tough to manual focus a telephoto like this one but with practice its not too bad.
