It was in the seventies here today with bright sun and sparse clouds.
I've done my AF fine tuning with the AF lenses but I wanted to
get out, walk around and see how another lens I recently bought
I put the old, Ais Nikon 25-50mm f4.0 lens on the Nikon D7000 and went for a walk through
downtown. I used the camera on manual. I set the lens at f8.0 and the shutter speed to 1/250th with the ISO set to 100. Occasionally I strayed a bit. I shot a few wide open.
I shot a few in "A" mode with auto ISO but for the most part, as above.
The color is different than my newer lenses. So is the contrast rendering.
But the resolution is very high.
At f8.0 I suspect nearly every lens is beautiful.
That's all I cared about in my shooting today.
