Just picked up a Voigtlander Ultron 40mm. I've used manual glass in the past but I typically stick to autos for professional work. Looking forward to exploring manual focusing with the Voigtlander.

This one at f/2 and 1/100

Congrats on the Voight--they make some beautiful glass--& thanks for the nice pic. Hoping to see more from you! Best jt

I have several Vivitar-branded lenses which I enjoy shooting with--this 55mm is one of them & it gets 1:1 macro on its own. jt

I picked up a cheap unpredictable Sigma 16mm fisheye. Closed right down it is quite good

Wonderful colours, JT!
Crisp detail and beautiful rendering of the out of focus areas.
I find the second one with the flowers outstanding.

These examples certainly look great, Nigel!
Fine work with this wide angle. #3 would be my favourite.

This Vivitar-branded 135mm f/2.8 is my favorite 135mm. It has 1:2 Macro capabilities & half stop detents. This pic is not cropped, just downsized for the thread. Best, jt

Having a lot of fun with a Samyang 24mm Tilt shift that is a good buy if you do architecture.
