Re: It is an interesting thread BUT

+1 Bravo!

In an age of instant gratification, unfortunately, there is no "magic" lens and no substitute for learning the skills of the trade. After all, don't they say a "bad tradesman blames his tools". IMHO the reason some people prefer one lens over another is their experience and shooting style, heck I was taking wonderful portraits with an old Zeiss Planar F2 50mm in the late '70s. I doubt it would make the "top 500" on the DxOMark scale! Err, is there any way to convert this to work on a D600?
