Just landed this lens on Ebay for about $60 something shipped. Yes its manual and doesnt meter on my D50 but I figure it will give me a good opportunity to learn about lighting amd manual focus. Anyone have any experience with this lens?
With my old, now gone, d70 i always guessed, reviewed the picture using histograms and adjusted the exposure for the next shot. Works, but still is a PITA if you ask me. I didn't use a light meter because it wouldn't be much more convenient. You'd have to check the exposure anyway AND carry a lightmeter around. Not my cup of tea, but your taste may be different.No No...I know that already. Im just asking if you all just guess, then re-shoot or just break down and get a light meter and use that. Thanks
