Test Shots with Nikkor 1.4D/50mm

(Practicing manual focus in this set, since I rely a lot on AF)

I finally have my new (repaired) lens back from the camera store, a labour of love after being given it by my wedding photographer who had since replaced his with a functioning model.

It cost $180AU to repair, which was much less than I would have gotten a new model for... so I'm thrilled!

The only downside to this lens, with such gorgeous colour and clarity, is that the autofocus (AF) is incompatible with my camera body (a Nikon D40X). Looks like I'll be having many adventures in manual shooting in the near - and distant - future! ;)

... Or an upgrade to a D300 (wishful thinking :P)

KerBear You're doing a fine job with the Manual focus! :) Think of it as a positive aspect to the lens...

Peche You're doing a great job with the manual, as KerBear has pointed out - really nicely done! :) This is the kind of lens I'm looking at... and just the other day was spying out the D300s and cameras of the kind... we can dream, can't we? ;)
