    Some airport activity shot throughout the morning with my Vivitar 135/2.8. I've recorded similar images recently, but I wanted to see things with the perspective of the longer lens. I must say for a $17 lens (shipped), the shots are pretty good. Unfortunately, I retracted the hood in some later shots, and got a ring shadow in the lower right. You can see that our summer haze has set in. Just a few weeks ago, the air was clear and crisp. All pics were f/16, ISO 100, with shutter speeds from 1/80 to 1/250.

    Some descent shots you got there.

    That's the attraction of the cheap legacy lenses.

    Thanks guys. I've been able to get hold of a couple of old legacy lenses for pretty decent prices.
