Sharp Start to the New Year

28mm manual focus

This was my first walk-around using an old manual focus lens, in this case the Nikon 28mm 2.4 AIS, on my Fuji X Pro1. A very sharp lens!. This translates to a 42mm in the APSC multiplier — in between the traditional 35 and 50mm formats. Another good point about this lens is its close focusing distance.

To get this shot I had to estimate the exposure and, of course, focus the lens by hand. The X Pro1 has a focus magnification capability that makes this easier.
