    Unfortunately, our resident 28-year-old cellar dweller won't recognize those images.

    Personally I'm getting a bit annoyed that he hasn't been banned already. I actually dread coming here because he is like a bad disease that you don't want to catch.

    Maybe we can move the forum before he gets back. Just don't leave a forwarding address.

    Oops. Sorry. I had an utterly useless, blur-inducing manual focus lens on the camera. Let me change that to an autofocus lens as we now know it's impossible to get an image in focus without the aid of modern technology.

    I want a 105 2.5 AI-S soooooo bad. I have the 135 2.8 Ai and it's an absolute gem, but I still want the 105.

    Yes, in manual mode, but without metering.
    To meter you'll need: to use the liveview mode, or to use an external metering, or to use the the "sunny 16" rule.
