    So i have started a new website called where's nifty?

    The idea is that there is a nifty fifty (canon 50mm f/1.8) that travels around the U.S. (and others in different parts of the world) to different photographers. The idea was started over at the POTN forum.

    I created a website so that we could get all the images and information about this all in one place.

    If people are interested in doing this with me, i will be willing to donate my own nifty for the cause. The rules are simple.

    You need to have a minimum of lets say 200 posts (or be a supporting member) in order to obtain nifty.... and join the flickr group at Flickr: Where's Nifty? so that you can upload the images there.

    You will have nifty for 4 weeks from the time you get him and then after that, you will simply contact the next in line, or contact me, and then ship it to that person.
    -----------------------------------------------
    If you would like author permissions to the wheres nifty blog, just sign up, and i will be happy to change the permissions.

    -----------------

    I also just realized that there is one similar to it here with nikon users....
    http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/...-through-one-crappy-lens-game-nikon-only.html

    AWESOME! -----well this one will be for canon users-------------
    If you would like to be a part of this, simply pm me aor add your name to the list.

    If anyone would like to donate their own nifty or at least trade for a Power smugmug account, pm me!

    EDIT: Never mind I see you got the one for Nikon users.

    I just wonder where they were able to find a crappy Nikon lens?

    lol... im guessing it was one of his old ones... it is a tele lens so he probably didnt care for it but wanted to see what people could do with it.

    Good luck on the Canon version of this!

    And since someone asked, the one I started isn't a Nikon lens - it's a Sears branded lens made to fit Nikon, full manual 70-210 f/4. Picked it up for $25 on eBay ;)

    I think the problem you may run into, as far as getting people to participate, is that a 50mm lens is a fairly common lens, most people already have one. Why some of us Nikon users got so excited about the crappy lens project is because it was a really old, fully manual lens, something you might never have a chance to shoot with.
