Great thread, and a great reminder of the truth that it is the photographer who makes the image; not the gear!

Here's a few from a weak T1i and a forty year old SMC Takumar 28mm f/3.5:

Canon G2 again.

Using a P&S with useless zoom, one finds himself doing a lot of macro and pics of stuff that doesn't move. :D

It actually made me learn a great deal about macro work, which was cool.

For some reason I enjoy this picture and it was taken with an iPhone.

Shot with my old 50D ( before it got swamped while kayaking ) and that old 70-300 zoom that goes for 150 bucks.

old 350D with an even older dismantled Pancolar 50mm 1.8 that was fitted as a tilt lens with some duct tape.

Here's one with one of my favorite vintage lenses, the SMC Takumar 55mm f/1.8 M42 lens.  This was a kit lens with a lot of Spotmatic cameras back in the day.  It is a tiny little thing, but it's optics and color rendering are not vintage at all - it is a sharp, contrasty, and has great color.  Best of all, it works flawlessly on modern FF bodies with no mirror hang.  Because of it I actually ditched my EF 50mm f/1.4 (I don't shot 50mm a ton, and between this vintage glass and my Tamron 24-70 VC I have 50mm covered nicely).

Hello Dustin,

beautiful indeed.

I have the Mamiya 1.4  on M42 mount with the same 55mm FL.

I wonder if they share a common optical design
- they kind of look the same as well -

any thoughts between the two would be greatly appreciated.
