The Forgotten Lens

Well, hopefully none of the 3710 students have forgotten this lens as each of you was issued one last month …

Regardless, an interesting treatise on the wonder of the basic 50 mm lens over on Gary Voth’s site. I’ve decided my 24 mm is my standard lens, but have been thinking a second body with a 50/1.4 would be a great walk-around kit. (I learned on a Pentax Spotmatic with a Super-Takumar 50/1.4, though “my” first camera had a Rikenon 50/2.0 on it.)

We just don’t talk about image craft enough anymore … need to do more of that.
