Not quite, but I can pee in the yard without worrying if someone will see me!

Thanks for the nice comments.

Ron - The macro function isn't much use on that lens, but you did a nice job anyway.

Ray - Beautiful set, including the outhouse!

Ray thank you for the comment. Love the old Dodge and conversion. Is that near Leighton's too?

Went scratching around a bit in my photos and found this shot I took the day I received my 50mm f/1.8 Series E in the mail...

Which one do you guys prefer?

Really impressed with the sharpness this little lens has, even for a shot that is not in perfect focus.

Regards
Jared

I keep telling you all, the Series E 50/1.8 is a winner of a lens. Don't let the naysayers sway you at all.

Thank you Kevin. Actually the K version lenses have more available factory conversion kits available. So I really don't think that they will command a premium. I would go ahead and have that one converted, you will love it!


I have been looking for a #5 kit for 6 months... I found a #4 (for a very high price of $50), but no #5. I have the early K, so its tougher.

This shot is great. The gazebo or EZUp keeps drawing my eye, but the rest is awesome.

Thanks everyone for the comments on the fairground pics and for the second place in the last WA.

Curtis, I hope you find time to try a couple - I made it my challenge for the year to enter 12 this year and get at least one 3rd place or better. So far I've done 6 so on track and 3 have been in the top 3. All I need is that all elusive trophy that Jeff seems to collect at will (and is well deserved by him).

Ray, loving your series from the Smokeys. The old dodge is a great pic

Curtis, nice shots with the 55, those little birds are very cute.

Here's one I posted a colour version of earlier that I've now B&W'ed. I'd be interested in some feedback of which people prefer.

Oh, for all those in the US tomorrow happy 4th of July and please be safe around the fireworks.






The B&W version







Here's the colour version for comparison

Here is another half decent shot that I scratched up from the archives so to speak...


Autumn River by jared.vanbergen, on Flickr

Really need to try and make some time to get out and take some more shots with this sweet little piece of glass...

Is that from pee-ing in the yard in winter?

Ray, love "The old Dodge"! Glad I just got my own car back from rust-proofing ;-)
The outhouse looks really neat between the tall trees. Just browsed through some vacation-shots for a possible pictorial reply, but my own pictures of a lovely outhouse (a cozy two-seater :-) are shot with alternative gear (Leica and Rolleiflex).

Jared, I prefer the color-version too. I've never had much luck with the 50/1.8E, but I really enjoy the variety of great shots posted here with this lens.

Curtis, I like the tiny-wheel-shot, another nice example of the 55/1.2's wonderful rendering.

Ron, nice work with the 50-135!

Leighton, your nightly city-scene reminds me a bit of Don's work - in other words: a great shot!

I prefer the B&W version personally. It has a more calming look to it...

Mark, I prefer the B&W-version. The color-version would work better without the red stuff in the background. Converting this image to B&W solves this issue. I hope that isn't too critical, I don't wanna hurt your feelings or so, just my thoughts.
