So my new (well rather old!) lens arrived the other day, and was discussed on the chatbox (mainly because 'postie' turned up whilst I was chatting on here)

It's an Industar 50-2, made in the USSR

At the time I promised to post some pics on here.

This lens is tiny (see 2p piece for scale) I've put some pics below - both on, and off the camera (and compared to the cameras standard 'kit' lens)

Manual focus only, NO metering of any kind, manual aperture setting (F3.5 - 16)

And the results? - well a few examples below:

There is something very satisfying about knowing that a picture has turned out the way it has because you focused it by eye, chose an F setting, estimated the exposure etc.

Lovely, pleasantly soft, pictures that the photographer can truly own:

And all this for £10.50 :thumb (thank you Mr Ebay :Not Worthy)
