+1, fantastic first entry with your new lens Philippe, though we've come to expect nothing less with photographs at other focal lengths!

Why do you hate 50mm if you don't mind me prying?


lol - so glad you're prying Philip - I was going to ask the same thing - and a much baser question as well, what did he pay for it (was curious what they go for in France)

Here are a couple images from our day trip to Charleston, SC. We had a great time walking around the old part of the city and I couldn't resist a little street photography.

Nice set of images!

I live about 25 miles from where these were taken. I should spend more time there......

Thank you Jon. I stayed in Summerville for a few days. Melody's aunt lives there. Quaint town and I enjoyed the visit.

Thanks guys! Actually I prefer lenghts with stronger character but I don't really hate the 50
Ben I paid 60 ( around USD 75) for a good shape 50/18 ais.

Wow, 60 Euros is a pretty good price for a 50/1.8 Ais - is this already a blessing brought by the socialist french presidentship?

Another excellent shot. I think you need to tell us a bit more about yourself Ian. Most of us at one time or another have introduced ourselves more fully. As a matter of fact, I believe Monty has collected those comments, though I'm not exactly sure how to access them. The fact that you're using a model for some of your shooting suggests you have a bit more than the casual amateurs' approach to photography.



Apart from what Monty may have done, I have collected the bio's for myself, so here all the links, if anyone cares to see them.
I tried to collect them all, if you don't find your name but you have written a bio, pleas add it.

But Leighton, I see that your name is missing...? I can't accept that
Do you remember when you approximately posted it? Right after Curtis suggested it? I will try to find it.

Phillippe I love your work with the 50mm 1.8. For sure a very capable lens.
Curtis the B&W shot is terrific.
Leighton your street photo is first class. Very sharp, colorful and detailed.

Here's one from the top of one of the parking garages, taken with the 50-135mm f3.5.

Leighton, that's a very nice view on the main street. Somehow I prefer this shot over your former images of this street, taken with a longer lens. The pictures taken with the 180 (if memory serves) were much more atmospheric, but the one above is very natural looking.
Which of your zooms did you used for this one? I see quite a bit of distortion (no offense meant).

edit: the EXIF-infos fooled me - was the street done with the long end of your 50-135?
The B&W is great too - very nice tonality and crisp detail.

love this Leighton. Can't get over how clean and orderly that street is. There are a couple of specks on the right side but the left gutter is clean as a whistle - you could eat off that road.

mine has a scratch on the back element - for 60 euros (just realised my keypad doesn't have a euro symbol) I could buy another.
not seeing any lack of character in that shot.....time will tell (but you must have a zeiss 50?)

Haha, you can have Schroeder for free - you will get a rubber-lens-hood for your 50/1.8 as a free gift

Thanks Georg, my, what a memory on my previous shot with the 180mm!

This was with the 50-135mm., but I'm not sure at what FL I shot it. I'm curious, where are you seeing the distortion?

Portrait of a mechanic in his workshop:

Ai-Nikkor 55/1.2 at f/1.4, cropped a tiny bit. I've tried the "Acros" film-setting in SilverEfex and like it for this shot.
