I decided to head out the other day with a couple of my cheapest $20 lenses and my D7100.  Here's what came of it.

Can't complain for the price of a nice lunch.

Price has nothing to do with what an old lens can deliver! Well done.

Nice photos!


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

Old lenses can be lots of fun.  

I have a collection myself.  Some were a bit more than $20 but still very cheap considering what they cost new.  The Series E lenses were surprisingly good even in their day.   Nice photos!  The last one, is that what I think it is???

Thank everyone.  Yes I love my collection of old lenses!  Need to pull them out more than I do though.  

 

Pete, the last one was a crazy tall dust devil, nothing serious.  Even though it was a couple hundred feet tall at its peak.

cheap lenses are fun.

Just goes to show you that you can do some phenomenal stuff with old glass.  I'm still looking for a decent used Kaleinar 100/2.8.  Tiny lens with some phenomenal results.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
