Oh, those are very kind words, thank you very much ! I used to write for a living so I guess it helps, however English not being my mother tongue sometimes makes things a little harder, but I guess it also gives a certain flavor to the blog.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!

Hmm, sorry about the brutal end. Either I suddenly ran out of inspiration, or I was running late and had to get going. Those posts about my NEX impressions and manual focus in particular are just a series, really, so they're bound to finish quickly and be picked up with the next one.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.
Hmm.. not in the undreds territory yet, but already quite scary. I had to refrain myself today to get the same Auto Reflecta 55/1.7 I had before, and succeeded ONLY by bidding (and buying) on an Hexagon 50/1.7 instead. Damn... Now have two extra adapters on the way, m42 and AR. PLease, please, I want to stop ;-)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!
