Day 676 of 365 More.

Well, my 50mm lens is still broken, but Amazon assures me that a new one has shipped.

I was stuck for an idea today and I kinda started wondering how well the broken lens would work. It has no ability to focus whatsoever, so it was kind of a challenge to move back and forth until I found a spot where I was totally in focus, but I think I nailed it pretty good.

Except for a slight crop (very slight, just got ride of a hair of blackspace on the side) this is right out of the camera. That’s something you don’t see from me very often.

    That’s how I have to use mine. It’s an old manual focus 50mm that I stole from my old Pentax. It works great, but it’s kind of hard to shoot self portraits with it. 😛

    @olga_sgr: heh… thanks.

    @Sweet~Vanilla: actually, I kind of got lucky. This was only the fourth pic I tried and I managed to center in on the sweet spot of focus.

    @lrayholly: uhhh… if by challenge you mean, "too lazy to come up with a real shot besides"

    @disco~stu: thanks

    @jessi.: wait, you don’t even have manual focus? Cuz even that didn’t work on my broken one.

    @365bunnies: thanks.
