Your writing makes me want to keep reading, keeps me interested. You could write about politics or something and i wouldn't be able to stop reading. Berry nice blog, thank you. Hope you get your adapter soon,i know how you feel. I ordered one and first they sent me the wrong one, and then the second time i was wrong again so i got a refund and ordered from someone else. The crappy part is they were for adapting to m4/3 so i can't even use them.
Thanks, great post. I've fallen in love with manual, and I never had much chance to shoot on old manual lenses! I think you could have taken the horse riding analogy a bit further, manual shooting really forces you to hold the camera very gently but deliberately, so you get to know your camera in a new tactile way rather than standing at arms length and pressing a dial and button. There is that je ne sais quoi in the successful shots because of that too!

A well written article. I too enjoy the manual focus ability and the way it makes you think about your shot a bit more.
As a former ranch hand I love anything to do with horses, keep it up.
About the only time I grab the stock lens is when I plan on capturing a few videos.
The only critique is that your article tends to end a bit abruptly. A nice wrap up would have been nice. Other than that, nice work.
Those Oly lenses are real gems. They look really cool and unmistakably Olyumpus.
"I know, I’m very, VERY weird. Chicks usually love designer purses and expensive shoes. I love lenses. Go figure."
I can appreciate the horse-riding analogy... but the legacy lens vs womens shoes analogy sounds rather scarey. Women who are into shoes buy hundreds of pairs!
