Cathedral - helios  44-2 58mm-F2 1976 Russian lens ( panorama ) $30
Unionville fest 2013 - sigma 28mm F2.8 mini-wide manual lens       $20

Not great shots at all but useable images after some simple processings.

Love the G12. It counts as cheap, right? I'll let others be the judge of whether the photos are great or not...

This is one of my favourite shots.... taken with an Olympus 2 megapixel p/s one fall in Algonquin Park, Canada. This is the out-of-camera jpg.... no processing.

That is very nice, Don.  The low megapixel count has actually produced a flatteringly soft image that is dreamy rather than pixelated.

Hey all,

    1980-ish vintage Nikon EM with a 70-210 ƒ4 Series E lens. Manual focus takes a bit of getting used to!! It was pretty foggy around the RR tracks.

love this topic...  these following images were shot with canon 20d that i bought for every day practicing light

note:  not sure if it is cheap; but i bought it with broken lcd display (not able to view image on lcd), fixed it and sold battery grip came with it, out of pocket that i had to pay was $5...  of course not to include the lens  ;D

noise reduction was applied and grains were added back to images

Nice!  Shouldn't that lens be on a FED or something?  :)
5D Mark III, 40D, 1V.  Bunch of strobes, lenses and other bits.
They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.
