Re: Are you having fun doing it?

Thanks!

I do wish some of the commenters on the article itself got my point that I was trying to put across. Though most are constructive, there are a few "dissenters" posting there that completely missed the point of what I am doing, and the fact that I cannot afford a competent autofocus set-up, just yet, anyway.

Great article.

My question to people has always been, "Are you having fun doing it?".
Does the enjoyment out weigh the frustration?
Do you get a good sense of achievement with the final product?
If so go fot it, and sdon't listen to anyone else.

Personally I like a challenge, so shooting sports with legacy lenses appeals to me.

My bet is even though as you say, any DSLR would have done better, you had a great time...and ended up with some great shots.
