Not only have I been playing around with my manual metering, I've been rooting around in my parents' basement to dig out my dad's old lenses. And by old, I mean old. While I was hoping to find a wide angle, what I did find was a 135mm prime lens that's th digital equivalent of 2.8. It's a heavy thing and I still was unable to get any really good portrait shots with it, but it takes great flower pictures.

I'm feeling destined to only be good at flowers.


  1. Definitely takes a good flower shot. Great DOF. And colour!

  2. Lynn - you can't get a good macro shot out of it, but the colors were so vibrant, and I was really impressed with the DOF. No grain or noise at all!
