Old Skool Fifty

Added on by John Sturr.

Everyone once in the while I dig for the 1982-ish 50mm f1.4 ais - this was a kit lens which came with Dad's FM-2.  I still have the FM-2 and bought it after it accidently went into the river on a canoe trip.  I paid for the repair bill - and it was mine.  I think I was in the 8th grade - that was 1983.

The fifty perfoms well - at anything over f2.8 -- I long for the new Af-S.
