One question: are the contests limited to MF lenses only? Smile

I think we have a nice community here, with many talented people, tool just a tool so no matter AF or MF , but this site is dedicated for make obsolete gears to more popular. I think if you marked this an AF lens with bold should okay, let we see other people opinions and we can decide it based on them.

H91 bus, Brentford. Taken about 4 months into my photographic journey in January.



EOS 1000D, Pentacon 30mm I believe as it has 10 bladed aperture and I used it that day. Probably f8, definitely 30 seconds at ISO 100.

I recommend that a more clear title for this subforum, instead of "traffic" should be "transportation." In English, traffic has to do with the amount of vehicles, rather than just the vehicles themselves. Whereas "transportation" simply refers to any sort of vehicle used to transport people or things from one point to another. So it could be anything from a bicycle to a supertanker. But "traffic" would imply more than one of whatever.

Shot this morning, with Canon EF 24mm f2.8. It's a park in my area, where there is a little and nice train. Closed for the season, but railway is still there...


Another example here, but not sure it's worth a contest
