While I have long been a mostly Nikon shooter, I realize that there are other lenses out there that are really amazing, and that they don't mount on a Nikon. Since I am shooting film here, I am not going out to buy a Sony Alpha or some other mirrorless digital camera to mount different lenses on. No way. This boy is shooting film as much as possible (and yes, I do own two Nikon DSLRs). For instance, Konica has always had a reputation for manufacturing some excellent glass. I was given a Konica Autoreflex TC by my mother-in-law last year. The camera body wasn't working, but the 40mm 1.8 lens was perfect, so I bought a Konica Autoreflex T body on ebay for about $15. Then, I saw the 57mm f/1.4 at Huron Camera -- an amazing lens I have read about elsewhere. I bought it, and it is one of those lenses that quickly becomes a favorite. Wide-open it has a bokeh that will make some of those bokeholics pee their pants. My Autoreflex T's meter is a bit off, so I usually use sunny-16 or a hand-held meter for my exposures. What I have REALLY come to love is shooting the expired Panatomic-X (that I bought back in March at the estate sale) with this lens. I am getting some images that I have really been liking. Shooting late in the day with soft light at wide-open aperture or close to it is giving me some results that I am quite pleased with.
